Denver Broncos Articles
Louis Wright
Louis Wright was drafted by the Denver Broncos with the 17th pick in the first round of the 1975 NFL Draft. He was a 6-2 200 pound corner with excellent speed and he played the run as well as any corner I have ever seen. In high school and junior college in his hometown, Bakersfield, California, he was a track star. He ran 9.6 seconds in the 100-yard dash and leaped 25 feet 7 inches in the long jump. These were the marks that pro scouts called, ''natural athletic talent.'' (1) Louis Wright was born on January 31, 1953.
Howard Griffith

Howard Griffith “The Human Plow” was born on November 17, 1967 in Chicago, Illinois. After attending Illinois for his college football, Griffith was drafted in round 9, pick 236 of the 1991 NFL Draft. After two seasons of not making the team, he finally cracked the final roster for the Los Angeles Rams in 1993.

Steve Atwater

Steve Atwater, “The Smiling Assassin,” was selected with the 20th pick of the first round of the 1989 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. The Broncos already had hard hitting safety Dennis Smith, but figured Atwater would team with him to provide perhaps the most feared safety tandem in the NFL. The Broncos passed on Louis Oliver, whom many believed was the best safety in the draft to select Atwater, mainly because of his leadership and toughness. “I want to be similar to (San Francisco all-pro) Ronnie Lott, but I just want to be the next Steve Atwater. I want to make a name on my own,” said Atwater, who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds for Denver scouts. “I'm used to being a leader. I've been a team captain all my life.” (6) 

Haven Moses
Haven Moses was selected with the 9th pick of the first round of the 1968 Draft by the Buffalo Bills. He would spend his first 4 1/2 seasons in Buffalo before being traded to the Denver Broncos in 1972. Moses was a big play wide receiver averaging 18.1 yards per catch during his career.
Riley Odoms
Riley Odoms was the first great receiving tight end in Denver Broncos’ history. He was drafted with the 5th pick in the first round of the 1972 NFL Draft out of Houston. The 6’4’’ 230-pound tight end was born on March 1, 1950. He played for the Denver Broncos from 1972-1983.
Keith Bishop
Keith Bishop was born on March 10, 1957 in San Diego, California. Following his college football career which ended at Baylor University, Bishop was drafted by the Denver Broncos in round 6, pick 157 of the 1980 NFL Draft.
