The talk of the National Football League world at this time of year is the annual player draft, coming up later this month.
Nowhere can you read more about the draft here in Denver than in the Denver Broncos website, which does a great job previewing star and wannabe stars from around the country.
But after all the bodies are measured and the stats are studied, sometimes a player still can come from relative obscurity.
Perhaps the greatest example in Broncos team history of a player coming from a really small school and going on to make it big was the late Lyle Alzado.
How he came to be a Bronco is a short story worth telling, and thanks in advance for reading it.
