Contest. We're one month out. Let's see who can guess who the Broncos will pick in the draft, or at least get the closest out of the seven picks.

Here are the picks:

1st round - 25
2nd round - 57
3rd round - 87
4th round - 108 & 120
5th round - 137
6th round - 188
7th round - None

Devon Still, and I'm hoping Doug Martin in the 2nd. The Boise State ASU game is on and he is gonna be a stud

Here's mine:

25 - Fletcher Cox, DT, Miss. St.
57 - Kelechi Osemele, RT, Iowa St.
87 - Markelle Martin, SS, Okla. St.
108 - Kheeston Randall, DT, Texas
120 - Cyrus Gray, KR/RB, Texas A&M
137 - Ty Hilton, WR/KR, Fla. Int'l
188 - Ryan Miller, OL, Annual Obligatory Buff Selection ;D

More of What I want to happen, but should be fairly realistic

25 - DT Jerel Worthy
57 - DE Vinny Curry

120 - C Philip Blake
137 - DT Marcus Forston
188 - QB Ryan Lindley

57 - RB Doug Martin, Boise State
87 - OLB Sean Spence, Miami
108 - CB Josh Norman, Coastal Carolina
120 - QB Nick Foles, Arizona
137 - DT Marcus Forston, Miami
188 - WR BJ Cunningham, Michigan State

Other prospects that intrigue me (aside from Worthy and B. Thompson, who I could also see us taking at 25):

QB Kirk Cousins, Michigan State
QB Russell Wilson, Wisconsin
RB Chris Polk, Washington (seems like a "Fox back")
WR Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma (unstoppable before season ending injury)
DE Olivier Vernon, Miami (would have been a premier pass rusher last season if not suspended for Nevin Shapiro nonsense)
DT Mike Martin, Michigan
MLB Mychal Kendricks, Cal (small, but fast linebacker - Fox type - instinctive)
FS Markelle Martin, Oklahoma State
FS Janzen Jackson, McNeese State (formerly of Tennessee)

My mock right now has us going Worthy, Ta'amu. Solidify both defensive tackle positions. I'd go with Robinson or Spence on the weakside in the third, if not, Bradham in fourth. I think the depth at RB and WR is good in four and beyond.

I'm one of DJ's biggest fans, but I get the feeling his time in Denver will come to an end within the next couple of seasons. Being a Miami fan, there is no one I would want to fill his shoes more than Sean Spence.

He's pretty much as instinctive as they come, not to mention one of the better tacklers you'll find. If not for his size, he'd be a first rounder. However, Fox seems to covet players like him - quick, instinctive, and the type of linebacker that you'll always find at the bottom of a pile.

Do it, EFX.

I think the Broncos HAVE to go DT no later then the 2nd round, period. I won't say it's automatic to use their 1st round on one, I think they'll go BPA for sure in the 1st. Who that will be is anybody's guess right now. Could be QB, RB, OG, DT, CB, WR, anybody. But if it's not DT, I'll bet that 2nd rounder is for sure a DT.

Denver Broncos
Needs: DT, WR, LB, CB, OG

Bringing in all-time quarterback Peyton Manning will cover up a lot of the Broncos' roster ills -- even if some fans aren't happy that their Tim Tebow jerseys are obsolete after his trade to the New York Jets. The Broncos improved some of the pieces around him, including adding former Bengals receiver Andre Caldwell to the outside duo of Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, and will undoubtedly sign others to aid Manning's offensive attack. A receiver/returner type may be in the cards with Eddie Royal now filling that role in San Diego. The four-time MVP might like the offensive line the Broncos have in place, but finding interior depth might be necessary to keep him upright through the next couple of seasons.

Defensive tackle Ryan McBean and linebacker D.J. Williams will be serving six-game suspensions for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, and the team already needed talent at those spots. The Broncos might, therefore, take advantage of strong talent at defensive tackle early in the draft. Team president John Elway and head coach John Fox addressed the secondary by signing a pair of new starters -- free safety Mike Adams (from Cleveland) and cornerback Tracy Porter (New Orleans) -- but Denver might add more corners if unsure about its nickel and dime options.

I'm confused on this guy. I have to admit I have only seen a couple of games but it seemed to me like he grabs guys and holds on for dear life until someone else is able to come in and finish the tackle off. Like I said I haven't seen a lot of film on him, but it seems his size is the big knock on him and it concerns me if he isn't an impact tackler at the college level, how can he hold up in the pros.

Lestat
03-28-2012, 10:36 AM
it wouldn't stun me if they didn't draft a DT in the first. but it depends on how the draft falls value wise. unless Tannehill plummets there is no QB worth a 1st round pick and with Manning here we don't need one that high. David Wilson is the only other RB who should go in the 1st and while i would love to get him i'm not sure they'll pick one that high with MaGahee here and the love affair with Lance Ball.
WR,OL,DE,DT,CB are the main areas of value that will be left that late in the draft.

Rainey would be a boner inspiring pick. just the thought of adding that kind of speed is incredible.

3rd Robert Turbin or Doug Martin(whichever is available in the 3rd-preference to Martin)

I'm no longer going to say DT

LB or WR at 25

outside of DT the only person we realistically should be considering at 25 is Dont'a Hitower. but the signing of Mays and the way his contract is structured says that Fox and Del Rio like and believe Irving is the guy if not this season than next year and Mays is holding down the spot for him.

i don't think WR is going to be as much of a target as most of us believe. i think the team is happy to go into next year with DT, Decker, Caldwell as our top 3 receivers and Dreesen and Tamme at the TE spots. we have plenty of receiving weapons to help Manning and really none of the WR that would be available to us at 25, seem like guys who will contribute a lot right out of college.

i say the most likely route will probably be either DT or CB.

The Broncos should wait to draft a QB until next year since this years crop does not look strong. Cousins is someone that I would take if drafting a QB since he reminds me of Dalton. I have seen some say Cousins does not have a strong arm and that is bunk. His main issues are accuracy and consistency, which may times involves footwork and can be corrected.

The Broncos, if staying at #25 need to go BPA and if Cox is not there, then it isn't a DT. It is a LB, CB, WR, or maybe OL. They can reach and go witha DT and if they do, I still say Reyes should be the guy since I think he has the kind of quickness that Cox does. Worthy? Still? Brockers? I just don't see these guys being that great.

Here you go:


1st round - Stephen Hill. A weapon to open up the underneath routes for Decker and Mid range routes for Thomas. This is kinda WTF draft selection that we all b**** about.
2nd round - Alameda Ta'amu, - Big DT able to stop the run
3rd round - Bernard Pierce - Might be the most underrated RB in the class fits the Fox model of RB.
4th round - Brandon Brooks A big G that improves the line and keeps Manning upright
4th round - Marcus Forston DT Talented but underachieving DT that a boom or bust type player.
5th round - Chris Galippo ILB - Special Teamer and Backup
6th round - Bruce Figgins FB/TE - Big FB/TE (272 pounds) that allows Denver to go to power I when it needs to.
7th round - None

The team that wants Foles probably has to take him early. Some teams may put a 4th or late 3rd round pick on him but.......Like you are saying if a team likes him, and picks late in the 3rd, and they know 4 other teams like him and pick before them in each round, you either reach and take him late 2nd, or try and move up. I doubt Broncos just sit pretty and grab Foles with a 4th round pick.

I just hope they don't go WR, too many busts at this position. I'm afraid they may go WR to give Manning another target, it would be a big mistake. There are some good quality non-WR players that could be had at #25.

I think the talent is decent but is kind of flat between picks #3 and #25. So the broncos get a player almost as good as the browns get IMO.

Ok, since many of these players are ones we have talked about, it will probably never happen.

Here are my picks:

1st round - 25 - Luke Kuechly, ILB
2nd round - 57 - Jerel Worthy, DT
3rd round - 87 - Robert Turbin, RB
4th round - 108 - Sean Spence, OLB
120 - Jarius Wright, WR/KR
5th round - 137 - Hebron Fangupo, DT
6th round - 188 - Vontaze Burfict, ILB

Think of Burfict as a special teams player with potential. He could knock the crap out of people on ST and try to find his way onto the field in special defensive packages.

I don't think Burfict is going to be humble enough to take a ST job. If he gets drafted late, it will be by someone who is willing to take a chance on him to compete for a LB position based on his skill. If he's undrafted, he'll sign with the team that gives him a chance to compete. It won't be to play special teams, IMO.

Also, I'd be surprised if Worthy makes it out of the first round. I doubt he'd be there for us in the 2nd.

But hey, at least I didn't call you a moron after not reading your post.

I just don't see him being anything in the NFL. He doesn't have anywhere close to mental ability to play and is slow too. Do you know he never had more than 10 tackles in a game in his college career.

I agree that Kuechly and Worthy will probably be gone for our picks, but here's to hoping. I don't see Worthy as a first round talent, but I think someone will take him in the mid-second round before our pick.

I'm starting to feel the same way, I would think that is the way to go.. DT. But the more I read about how DT is one of the deepest positions in this years draft, maybe the Broncos do draft a RB in the first round.

You figure if the mentality has changed to 'Win Now'.. Running Back is a big need, yes McGahee had a great year last year, but can he do it again.? How many games did he play hurt or leave because he was hurt?

This years draft will be interesting...

And that's exactly why I had my draft taking a RB in the first round. My entire draft was based off of "win now". RB and ILB in the 1st and 2nd give them someone who they hope can start right away. DT in the 3rd gives us probably someone who will start right away based on who else is with the team right now. 4th is a WR/KR that could impact immediately, 5th and 6th are ST players, and 7th is a ST player who could possibly start at H-back/TE in certain packages.

Oh yeah, let's draft a freakin' running back with our first pick, moron!

I don't like the idea of David Wilson in the first round either, BUT this guy is the only one smart enough to realize the value of Joe Adams as far as I've read so far. Adams will be an absolute steal regardless of who drafts him. Hence moron is going a little too far.

Plus, calling someone a moron is more lame than someone wanting a running back in the first round.

In other AFC West news: •The Broncos are one of several teams showing interest in South Carolina's Alshon Jeffrey. He is expected to be a late first-round pick. Denver has the No. 25 pick. Because of greater needs on defense, I don’t expect Denver to take a receiver with its first pick. Perhaps it will add a receiver with another early-round pick.

Breaking down the tiers of defensive tackle prospects…

Tier 1

Michael Brockers: Louisiana State (6-6, 306)
He might be a little raw and could have used some more work at the college level. However, he's an NFL talent with "plus" upside but can also come in and play vs. the run at a high level right away. Should get looks at both the three and five-technique spots and in my mind has the ability to become one of the better defensive lineman in the NFL down the line.

Tier 2

Devon Still: Penn State (6-5, 310)
Put it all together as a senior. If you can keep him motivated, Still has the talent to mature into a very good starting caliber lineman at a number of positions in the NFL.

Alameda Ta'amu: Washington (6-3, 337)
This is the kind of guy who has the ability to anchor the middle of an NFL defense in either a 3-4 or 4-3 front. Needs to do a better job finding the football, but overall he looks like a starter who you eventually will be able to win with in the NFL.

Brandon Thompson: Clemson (6-2, 310)
A guy who should be able to come in and be a lineman who can win inside vs. the run game. Looks a bit limited as a pass rusher, but will be able to push the pocket and threaten gaps off the ball. A starting caliber 43 nose inside.

Tier 3

Fletcher Cox: Mississippi State (6-4, 295)
I think his best spot might be as a 34 five technique who is able to penetrate and make plays off the ball. He's raw and needs to learn to play with his pad level lower. However, as a potential five technique he's a guy who has the skill set to earn a starting role.

Dontari Poe: Memphis (6-5, 350)
Has a rare physical skill set due to his combination of flexibility, power and get off burst. However, he's still learning the nuances of the position. If he's willing to put in the time, Poe can mature into one of the leagues better interior presences. Nevertheless, because he's raw his floor isn't overly high either.

Right on, and I don't think there would be anything wrong with it if you did. As long as it wasn't David Wilson.

If I were the FO and was honestly convinced that we were Peyton Manning and one draft away from being a SB contender, drafting to win now is EXACTLY what I would do. If Trent Richardson ended up falling past the Top 15, I would even trade up for him. I think I'd look BPA at WR and LB in round two, and DT/WR/LB in rounds 3-4. The rest of my draft I'd focus on solid work ethic guys who could contribute to both ST and the locker room.

I really have the feeling that this is the route the FO is going to take in the draft. And if they do, at the very least it will demonstrate to me that they truly believe we're one QB away from a Super Bowl...and that will take a little of the sting away from the whole Tebow fiasco for me.

However, like I've said numerous times, I don't think we're that close. If we had kept Tebow, it would have meant that the FO thought we were close, but not that close. The draft would have looked much different, and I think they would have been targeting the DTs and CBs in the early rounds and trying to find some value on offense later.

We'll see. Not too long now before we'll see how the story ends up playing out.

1 Tech: Better against the run
Michael Brockers
Dontari Poe
Devon Still

As someone who watches some C-USA football, i'll have to say that Poe wasn't on anyone's radar until the combine. He could end up being very good, but he was just an average joe fatty until he ran well in his shorts.

Brockers has potential. He can at least beat the O-lineman across from him, is pretty athletic, and can put even more muscle on his 6'5"+ frame. He could certainly be a stronger version of Bunkley, but Bunkley also took a couple years to develop.

I would probably agree, but I don't think any of the DTs available @25 are worth the pick, I.e. Still and Worthy.

I think Thompson is the most complete DT, who should be drafted, interestingly Denver was interested in Abraham. If the Giants taught us anything, it's that you can't have too many pass rushers!
