wow Im a little suprised by the LB's... Im guessing that this list was generated off of Mel Kipers best available, and I dont want to sound like a homer, but Jordan Dizon is going to be a great pro, he understands the game, and leads the nation in tackling, on a pretty average team... he very well could win the Butkis, one of three finalists... I would not be suprised if he dropped to the 4th or 5th, but he reminds me a lot of Zach Thomas

I can't say which one would be the best since they all look pretty good to me and I don't go study em or anything but I think this is the time when they can't afford to take a risky, upside based pick. I think I've seen some negative comments on Crable but he has upside... you can't risk this pick busting. The Broncos need a good, reliable LB next year so they need to make sure whoever they pick can produce and isn't being ranked too high based on potential that may never come out.
Granted the risk is there with every player but it's definitely higher on some than others, particularly your "workout warriors"
There are value picks later in Leman, Larsen, and Kehl.
