I'm looking long and hard at taking a flier on Jacquizz and Chris Rainey. Both have great hands and can pound the ball if needed.
You may strike gold with one of these two. Question is which one?

Broncos rookie RB Ronnie Hillman aggravated his hamstring injury in Tuesday's practice.
Hillman had just returned to practice over the weekend after missing nearly a week and a half with the injury. On a positive note, coach John Fox suggested Tuesday's strain wasn't as serious as the early-camp injury. Aug 14 - 7:17 PM

Rainey is strictly an outside the tackles guy when they opt to use him on running plays and I suspect you'll be able to count the number of tackles he breaks this year on one hand.
Not saying Rainey isn't talented, far from it but the fact that they aren't even trying to insert him in pass protection type drills when he's in the lineup tells me all I need to know on how they'll use him and what his strengths/limitations are.
