RB Audric Estimé, DEN (3 Viewers)

Luv Estime. Hate (not teally, but sports-wise) the Bronkies.

Unfair our beloved coach AP has to play chess against Andy Reid, Sean Payton and Jim Harbaugh. Not convinced he didn't match them this weekend, but we'll see. All four teams collected several very good players. Now who will motivate and elevate?

I don’t give any ****s about this dude's 40 time. He has tremendous first-step burst for his size. Lateral moves are mostly meh, but if he can even remotely read (run) and make (pass) blocks, he will be a problem in the NFL if he lands on a team that uses him proper.
Payton SHOULD be able to use him properLY.
Bronco running backs have been allergic to the end zone. Hopefully this helps.
 
I like the landing spot for Estime. Javonte underperformed and is not under contract beyond this year. There is opportunity for Estime if he performs or Javonte doesn't. I was shocked at Estime's slow 40, because he looks fast and explosive when I watch him. I own him in a devy league and will be drafting him.
 
I am reminded of Payton finding guys like Chris Ivory and Khiry Robinson as UDFAs and giving them pretty healthy 1st and 2nd down roles. Estime is probably a better version of those guys as a prospect. It will be interesting to see how he gets used.

Payton speaks to his potential usage at 16:20 of the attached clip with "1st and 2nd down" usage at the top of the list. Then go from there

 
I drafted him in a couple of leagues where I have Williams, because I do think he's the RB to own from the rest of them. If Williams doesn't produce this year, being removed from the ACL and other ligament concerns, he may not be for long with the Broncos and Estime is a good to have IMO.

“Audric Estime certainly looks the part. Even without pads, he ran with aggression during Saturday’s practice. (Estime) said developing an aggressive mentality even during non-contact portions has been part of his process. ‘I’m not trying to hurt my teammates, because it’s practice, but you’ve got to finish runs, got to run with the right pad level,’ he said. ‘You run to the last guy and a safety will come up, and I’ll say, ‘Nah, you’re not tackling me on that play.’”

“Williams, though, will have to earn the starting job in camp. He’ll be pushed by Estimé, the team’s fifth-round pick out of Notre Dame. Estimé missed most of the offseason program after undergoing a minor scope of his knee, but he’s expected to be “full go,” Payton said, at the start of training camp. In limited action in front of the media, Estimé, at 5-foot-11 and 227 pounds, looked the part of a running back who can bring more short-yardage toughness.”
