Just gonna post some observations and lurk over the draft junkie talk (I don't follow college football and even if I did I'd probably be a weak evaluator).

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Senior-Bowl-practice-notes-Day-1-4429.html

I came away unimpressed with Nebraska CB Alfonzo Dennard. He’s a compact kid who displays some natural click and close ability. However, he allows his cushion to be eaten up far too much in his drop and lacks much of a burst/second gear when asked to turn and run. He’s a guy who opposing receivers were able to routinely outpace today as he didn’t demonstrate the type of speed needed to run out of his transition vertically.

According to them Broncos were talking to george iloka (FS Boise State)

Russel Wilson was 5'10 so that hurts his draft stock.

6'3-6'4 and runs a 4.40-4.50. Projected 3rd round pick. Intriguing.

Considering Dennard was really beat only once this year and that was the bowl game against Alshon Jeffery , I think this guy is dead wrong. Dennard was really only beaten on the one pass play too. The pass at the end of the half wasn't his fault. He blanked Jeffery the second half too, because they both got tossed :P. Still counts Hilarious!

I caught some of the North Practice today and he didn't look comfortable in the one on one drills when he was not allowed to press. Not saying he's bad, but it wasn't good practice for him and all the NFLN announcers were down on him today.

Arguably the most versatile and dynamic player in the 2012 NFL Draft (http://bleacherreport.com/2012-nfl-draft), South Carolina's Melvin Ingram (http://bleacherreport.com/melvin-ingram) can rush the quarterback, drop into coverage, run stuff on inside stunts and keep contain on the edge.

Additionally, Melvin played on the hands team and in punt coverage, proving his value as a complete player.

He simply has a knack for finding the football as he recorded 19 sacks the pass two seasons along with 76 tackles.

In the Senior Bowl, look for him coming off the edge as a blitzer as well as dropping underneath the slant and crossing routes for coverage.

<IFRAME class=video_embed title="YouTube video player" height=243 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/to8Jsa13hxE" frameBorder=0 width=358 allowfullscreen></IFRAME>
A strong hitter and sure tackler, Oklahoma State's Markelle Martin recorded 129 tackles between the past two seasons while also defending 24 passes.

The leader of the Cowboys' defense that won the Big 12 and the Fiesta Bowl over Stanford, Martin forced two fumbles and had five tackles for loss in 2011.

In 2010 he picked off three passes and wasn't challenged nearly as much his senior season, so his ability to drop back, roll down and help with run support has earned Martin solid exposure.

Provided that he can keep that display rocking in the Senior Bowl, he will only increase his draft stock to a potential early second-rounder. He's arguably the best safety in the draft, so Martin can really shine bright on a big scouting stage.

Well he is a press corner so that would explain some of it. I think that is kind of weak that they won't allow corners to practice their strengths IMO. Oh well hopefully he gets some good out of the practices anyways.

Alfonzo Dennard: CB, Nebraska
<IFRAME class=video_embed title="YouTube video player" height=243 src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/sMxhOjSAFeM" frameBorder=0 width=358 allowfullscreen></IFRAME>
Arguably the best cornerback in the 2012 NFL Draft, Nebraska's Alfonzo Dennard really proved his worth as a lock down defender without Prince Amukamara opposite.

As a junior in 2010 Dennard was challenged quite a bit because of Prince but held his own by picking off four passes and recording 30 tackles.

So, when 2011 came around, Dennard was rarely challenged but still recorded 31 tackles. Being left on an island most of the time, Dennard didn't get many opportunities to help with run support, but was effective when doing so.
He's physical and doesn't back down despite being only 5'10".

Any team needing a stud defensive back that will isolate a slot receiver next season needs to look at him, because Alfonzo is a solid long-term corner in the NFL.

In the Senior Bowl, he'll get that opportunity against some talented SEC and Big 12 receivers.

They will be put in different drills all week, to see what they can do. Playing corner in the NFL will require him to play off and zone some time, so the scouts and FO want to run everyone through all their paces to get true feel about their abilities.

i gotta wonder what the realistic chances are of us going after a Safety within the first 3 or 4 rounds. with the cost of what we paid to the position last season, i can't see us looking at Safety before the 5th round, unless the team is so disenchanted with their 2nd round investment that they are already thinking about pulling a McDaniels-Alphonso Smith move and dump him after only a year.

i am betting this team goes, CB, DT, QB, RB in the first half of the draft and looks for depth starting in the 4th.

I think it's more likely to bring a S in before drafting another one. Laron Landry is going to leave the Skins but the rumor around here is he wants to play with his brother. He'd be a steal to get here.

Laron's got some issues that have rubbed Shanahan the wrong way. He's been hurt the last two years and hasn't been able to practice that much (which is a trigger for his dog house). They don't want to pay him high end if they are unsure how much he is going to be on the field. He's an RFA so I think he is worth more of a gamble to acquire than another rookie DS. That being said, I could easily see him trying to team up with his brother or heading home.

The BC MLB is also my favorite in this class (Kuechly). I was really impressed with how he played against Miami in both run and pass defense (his 40 time probably wont impress but he was running stride for stride 25 yards down the field with WR Tommy Streeter in a Tampa Two look). I would have no qualms using our first rounder on him, although I think he'll get taken alot higher than where we pick.

That said, it wouldn't surprise me to see Fox take Sean Spence, even for the MLB position (even though he is a natural WLB at 5'11 228), since Fox likes the smaller and faster backers. Spence has tremendous instincts, too. In the last half of the season, he shifted from WLB to MLB since we had a really good true freshman that needed to see the field (Perryman) and the only place he could play was WLB. Spence was able to move from Will to Mike effortlessly and was still just as active. He's got a great head for the game to go with terrific speed and agility. He would be a great get for Denver or any other team. I have a HUGE Spence-boner. Yes, some of it is homer, but he's also just legitimately good.

I am big on Kuechly right now, he is such a sure tackler in traffic and I really like him as an all-around MLB between Von and DJ. He is not quite as athletic as an MLB tends to have to be to a round 1 pick, so I think he will drop a bit after the combine and could end up with us.

I really like his instincts and I think he can be a really good leader in the middle of the defense - not quite as fiery as Dawkins of course, but I think a guy who can garner a lot of respect from his team mates.

Rev,

I don't think they are going to go out and spend alot of money in FA this year since there's still one more year before the cap floor kicks in so I think Bowlen will milk that one more time.

When he's been on the field, Connor's shown he can play. Fox seems to like the smaller speedier guys, though. I don't know if Connor is really a 4.6 guy, but I'm almost certain that Spence is in the high 4.4s to mid 4.5s.

Oh and he's smarter, too. :)

Melvin Ingram would be awesome, but we already have Elvis and Von and I could only see Ingram playing DT on passing downs. I just don't think he become a full-time player for us. I think he will be rated highly by Fox and the Broncos. Similar to a variety of ends Fox took in past drafts.

I wish we could get Luke, but there is no way that is going to happen. It will be interesting to see who our next coordinator will be: perhaps their specialty would emphasize where we might go in the draft.

Unfortunately, I don't know if there are 25 players in this draft who have first round grades. There is a chance a really talented prospect falls to the Broncos, but I'm not sure. I think when it is all said and done they will need to get a young defensive tackle to develop on this team. If they don't take one at #25 (or wherever they end up) -- any tackle with starting potential will not be around by our second round selection.

The first rounder has to start from day one. I think that sort of narrows our options quite a bit. I'd consider DT, LB, and CB. Perhaps an OL as well.

I think that's why CB or LB is the way to go. Goodman and Mays/DJ are easy to replace. I don't think that a Rookie DT at #25 steps in over Bunkley/Thomas (assuming we re-sign them of course.)

We wouldn't be replacing Williams, but getting an upgrade over Joe would be ideal.

I think we would be reaching for a corner at #25 unless one falls to us.

Denver is in a bad spot at positions of need when there selections will come. DL and LB will be mostly ate up by #25 and CB will have a big run in the second round before our next choice.

I'm excited regardless.

coaches always believe they can make young players better and they have Moore and Carter....but Dawkins is probably going to retire so maybe a safety lower in the draft.

As much as we wish the oline would be upgraded I think Broncos like it, it's young and getting better. If Kuper can come back Broncos probably won't change it.

We have some good pass rushers in doom and miller, and DJ still playing well, so that would seem to say the team won't look at DE or OLB much.

But when you look at CB/MLB/DT it just screams upgrade. I'd almost say its 100% one of those 3 positions in our first round pick. Everyone else seems to think the same thing so it must be pretty obvious.

I would like to see some more weapons for Tebow though. He needs some really fast RB so when the pitch option in play the outside defenders really worried about the player getting the edge. Our rbs ran hard and we should all give them props, but they need a sparkplug type with great hands.

Then at WR we also need more speed. I had said I wasn't liking Decker then a friend sent me an email listing all the good plays he made this yr in some crucial situations. I think i was focusing on the drops too much. The td in the KC game was huge. So I like him and DT as a young group to build around but we need WR bad. We couldn't go 4 wr sets because we dont have enough quality players.

I wouldn't be all that surprised to draft a DE in the later rounds, maybe free agency. We need someone opposite Doom as Von is a LBer. We need someone other than Doom on the front 4 that can get to the QB.

With our first pick, i want either DT or MLB. Either way i'll be happy. We need help there bad. Tired of seeing no pass rush from our DTs and Mays getting schooled on almost every play. I'd much rather pick up a CB in the 3rd. We still have Squid coming off an injury. Harris who looked pretty good and Vaughn.

Branden Weedon is heads above the other QB's at the senior bowl ,strong arm very accurate and great footwork.

He's also 28.

Not trying to draft a guy that will have ~six less years in the league than other options.

OK. He is a great LDE prospect IMHO. Plus, he can shift inside on passing downs and rush like Giants DE's. He is not a pure speed PR, but he can play the run and get TFL's and FF's.

I really would like to see him on DEN's DL next year.

Also, the preliminary DT prospects are HUGE this year. I hope they might get a DT in the first if one is there, but NO idea what the class looks like overall. Any chance?

Agree. I don't like his size but he uses it with some pretty great leverage as far as I've seen. If he can put on 20 lbs of muscle over his rookie contract he could easily develop into a perennial all-pro DE.

As for DT: Reference my answers to your Devon Still questions last year. He delivered in a huge way. Fat chance he slides to 25 but if he does.... hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngh

Did you notice though that often Ayers job was more to stand up and like 2 gap it while Von Blitzed. It didn't look like Ayers always had a green light to go after QB. I think the Broncos feel Ayers is solid not dominant, but that on a good defense he can play his role opposite Doom. What Broncos really need is an inside linebacker that is fast enough to make deep drop to the middle of the field, and get up inside the a gaps to give us an inside blitzer.

We need a #2 corner that can develop into a number 1. That's it.

We need a #2 corner that can develop into a number 1. That's it.

That takes a big move in FA or a pick in the top 2 rounds IMO. So basically you just said I am right, right? You are agreeing with me? Corners take some time to develop just like DT. Thats why Broncos went with vet moves at DT they knew that rookies struggle at that spot historically unless they are studs. Same with corners, but maybe a tad less so.

If Broncos want any corner that has number 1 talent you go high in the draft usually. Also Chris, not to be a dick, but you never go looking for a number 2 corner. You always look for players who will be number 1's then if they become your 2 so be it. But many many great defenses have corners who would both be number 1's on a lot of teams.

Remember Lester Hayes and Mike Haynes? How about Champ Bailey and Darryl Green. We are about at that same exact point the skins where when the took Bailey.

Broncos go hot after a corner this yr, by 2nd round IMO. Unless they scored a FA starter then probably not. Goodman can play another yr but it will look just like his last 2. Couple good games but some really bad ones also. This yr was actually Goodmans best job in a few yrs if you ask me.

Still though both our corners older in an age of passing and speed. Hell we may draft 2 corners.

No I totally agree about the need for that ONE player. I think we're set with Harris at Nickel and Squid + Vaughn at 4/5. What would you say to picking up a corner in FA? Easier to come by than a great DT.

Obviously if you draft a guy he has to have #1 level talent but no one is going to be starting over champ any time soon.

Bit more on some CB prospects from the south team

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Senior-Bowl-South-Practice-Report-Day-3.html

I thought North Alabama CB Janoris Jenkins looked a bit rusty yesterday. However, Wednesday he showcased impressive balance off the line in press bail, was consistently able to turn and run, and tracked the football extremely well. He was impossible for the bigger receivers on the South squad to separate from and was as dominant as any defensive back down here this week.

However, not to be outdone was Georgia CB Brandon Boykin. Boykin was again physical off the line today, smooth when asked to re-direct and much more balanced breaking down and closing on the football. He was really able to do a number on North Carolina WR Dwight Jones off the line, re-routing him out of a play before breaking up the pass.

Seems to me they better be concentrating on defense. Looking at the league tackle #s from 2011 regular season (combined tackles) I see Woodyard at 40th is the highest Bronco, DJ next at 59th, followed by Mays at 93rd, Harris at 104th, Miller at 141st, Carter 181st, Dawkins 208th.

The LB's WW, DJ, Mays, Miller combined had ZERO INT's. Haggan had one INT.

The safety's only one INT - Rahim Moore.

The rest of the DB's only seven INT's.

Russell Wilson would be intresting, I guess he is a pretty accurate passer had some crazy QB rating rating of 191.8 for last season edged out RGIII for tops in the country, had thrown for 3,175 yards with 33 TDs to 4 ints.

Problem is his only 5' 10" and 203lbs.

I think Drew Brees is listed at 6'.. and that is pushing the tape.

He looks to be a 5th or 6th round draft pick.

RB/WR/KR/PR Chris Rainey

http://media.scout.com/Media/Image/102/1026334.jpg

hes the closest thing to a Harvin. Harvin's got more strength, but Rainey is faster.

apparently hes looking to run a 4.1-4.2 at the combine. Right now hes a 4th rounder I think he will jump up the boards quick either round 2 or 3 after the whole process. However if he ran a sub 4.2 I think late 1st early 2nd since that would be insanely fast.

Jenkins is in terms of pure skill my number 1 CB this year, he is amazingly athletic and his man cover skills are unmatched in this draft, his size is not amazing but not a problem and he is technically sound in all areas - his arrests is a big problem, but his decision to take a year at a smaller school to try to rehab his reputation shows he is determined to grow.

I think the first round CBs this year are very close in terms skill, it will really be down to the combine and pro days to seperate them based on tangibles.

Arguably the most versatile and dynamic player in the 2012 NFL Draft (http://bleacherreport.com/2012-nfl-draft), South Carolina's Melvin Ingram (http://bleacherreport.com/melvin-ingram) can rush the quarterback, drop into coverage, run stuff on inside stunts and keep contain on the edge.

Additionally, Melvin played on the hands team and in punt coverage, proving his value as a complete player.

He simply has a knack for finding the football as he recorded 19 sacks the pass two seasons along with 76 tackles.

In the Senior Bowl, look for him coming off the edge as a blitzer as well as dropping underneath the slant and crossing routes for coverage.Melvin Ingram looks solid! :thumbs:

I went to a few AZ games last couple of years and this kid is legit! I think he will be a late 1st rounder. If he had the speed he'd go early. He just has great body control. Like you said, just like Loyd. He also reminds me a little of Larry Fitzgerald the way he goes for the ball. Good kid too. Didn't screw around off the field.

He just doesn't drop passes. I'd love to see Denver pick him up, but we have too many other needs, and WR will most likely not be addressed where he will be drafted.

Real solid safety. 4 yr starter for BSU. Don't think Denver will be drafting this kid. I watched every BSU game this past season. I just don't the he's enough of a play-maker to give up a pick for, considering we just drafted 2 guys.

Now most of us like what we saw in Carter. He still needs to tackle better. And Moore needs to get it right or he'll be Darcel McBathing it outa here. Both safetys were known as ball hawks in college as well. I don't need to explain phantom McBath, and Moores lack of discipline and technique last season. I think Denver should nab a FA safety with experience to compete with the younger guys, hopefully pushing them, and backing them up, and focus on RB/DL/LB/CB/OL in the draft.

i gotta wonder what the realistic chances are of us going after a Safety within the first 3 or 4 rounds. with the cost of what we paid to the position last season, i can't see us looking at Safety before the 5th round, unless the team is so disenchanted with their 2nd round investment that they are already thinking about pulling a McDaniels-Alphonso Smith move and dump him after only a year.

i am betting this team goes, CB, DT, QB, RB in the first half of the draft and looks for depth starting in the 4th.


That sounds good to me and then defense the rest of the way.

I was really impressed with the kid from North Carolina, Coples. Anybody know where he might be taken? And the guard from LSU.

Let's see how he does in the NFL.

What round do you think he'll get drafted in?

I haven't been impressed with him...but who knows, I've been wrong before.

I'll give Kirk Cousins one thing....he spanked my Wolverines 3 times.

Early 4th, late 3rd. Depending on how his combine and pro day turn out, maybe could move up to mid to late 2nd at best. He's a solid prospect but not someone who someone's going to build an offense around, at least right away. I think he'll turn out to be a solid pro backup much like other MSU guys like Hoyer and Stanton, except he played better in college and looks the part a little more.

Branden Weedon is heads above the other QB's at the senior bowl ,strong arm very accurate and great footwork.

LOSERS

Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Wheeden drew praise during the week, but wasn't on the same page with his receivers today. He completed only 5 of 9 passes for 56 yards and was intercepted twice, throwing no touchdowns

I did some research tonight on Isaiah Pead, RB, Cincinnati, who made some nice plays in the Senior Bowl.

I'm impressed with him....he reminds me a little of LeSean McCoy, who I loved coming out of Pitt.

I like Pead a lot. If we don't address RB in FA -- I'd love for us to snag him in the third. He would give some great speed on offense and some skill on special teams as a returner. Thanks for the video!

Meh, the game doesn't matter at all.

Not overly impressed with alot concerning the Sr Bowl. I thought the QB's were particularly poor, with Weeden looking the best of the group.

I thought the following players made some money:

RB Isaiah Pead, probably a 4th round pick before the game, he may have climbed into the late second to early third round range.

WR Juron Criner, Arizona. All this guy does is catch footballs. Has some Marcus Colston-like late round talent.

DE Cam Johnson, Virginia. Under-rated pass rushing force at DE thsat is now a solid second round pick.

DT Alameda Ta'amu, Washington. Stuffed the run and was un-blockable at times. Once considered a fist round prospect, he slipped due to a poor Sr season, but will be back on the rise.

SS Antonio Allen, South Carolina. I thought this kid looked like the most NFL ready safety of the Sr Bowl group.

There are others, just my random thoughts.

True, which is why a majoprity of the scouts leave after Wednesdays practice. The game doesn't mean alot, as the teams are running basic stuff, and alot of it is random results.

Weeden is a perfect example. You look at his stat line, and you are probably not impressed, but if you watched the game, you realize one INT was a bad route ran by the receiver, and that won't be clouded by the fact he was clearly the best QB of the group all week.

I was very disappointed in Nick Foles, and Kirk Cousins confirmed for me what I thought he was, which is just a backup-type game manager with no special skills.

i gotta wonder what the realistic chances are of us going after a Safety within the first 3 or 4 rounds. with the cost of what we paid to the position last season, i can't see us looking at Safety before the 5th round, unless the team is so disenchanted with their 2nd round investment that they are already thinking about pulling a McDaniels-Alphonso Smith move and dump him after only a year.

i am betting this team goes, CB, DT, QB, RB in the first half of the draft and looks for depth starting in the 4th.Whatever we do, we need size on both sides of the ball.
We need players that can flat out bull rush...

Broncos talk to SDSU Lindley (QB)

Gotta wonder what they'll do if he's sitting there at the bottom of the 2nd round.

Hopefully pass on him, Lindley looks like a 4th round pick at best

I'm betting the Broncos take a developmental veteran QB such as Pittsburgh's Dennis Dixon as the backup, and keep Adam Weber as the third string. I expect Elway will let the Tebow experiment play out over the next season before making a move and drafting a QB. This draft class to me is not very impressive, and I am guessing it won't be to Elway either.

Stay the course and draft defense.

Is it just me or does his style remind you of Ryan Torain? Also I wonder how many fumbles he had in college. Like his violent running though.

Yeah, outside of Luck and maybe RG3, the QB class is made up mostly of guys who you're like "weeeeeell this guy might", or "this guy could be"...nothing very compelling.
