I really don't want to take a RB in the draft and ship out McGahee. McGahee is the fall back "safe" option in that backfield. If Moreno stumbles or gets injured, there would be no one to turn to. I see that Broncos backfield as McGahee/Moreno 1A/1B and Hillman as the third option and the third down running back. It's pretty clear they couldn't trust Hillman as much as they thought they could in his first year. I see him making big improvements next year, but I'd keep McGahee until I see it actually happen.
I would not touch Manuel with a 10 ft pole as a QB. I watched a lot of ACC football because Clemson is my team, and EJ Manuel isn't a pro QB.
The only NFL quality QBs in the ACC were Tajh Boyd and Mike Glennon. Manuel is a borderline 5th or 6th rd pick at best, if he is taken earlier its a reach. If Manuel were to not get drafted, I'd consider him as a free agent as he might be better than Hanie but I wouldn't spend a pick on him.
If the Broncos are looking at bringing another QB in there are much better choices in the middle rounds. Like a Landry Jones or Tyler Bray. Honestly I wouldn't look at QBs in this draft if I were Denver, its a very weak QB class.
