1. Brandon Spikes. We need a leader from the LB Corps and he would provide that Much like Curry can play almost every single linebacker position no matter the scheme

2. Terance Cody. Its hard to pass on a guy like this. Running with the Plannet Theroy. His body of Expirence is a concern. Will he be able to play all year. Also can he stay on the field all three downs.

3. Gerald McCoy 4-3 UT 3-4 DE I like Vince better as a 3-4 end but i think he brings alot playing UT

4. Vince Oghobaase He is my favorite 3-4 end next year 6-6 300

5. Rolando McClain Makings of a great 3-4 Ted

I like Spikes, he looks solid and is athletic enough.

Depending how this season goes I love Sam Bradford, he has a good arm, instincts and football intelligence is second to none and he very accurate.

For DT Mccoy is very interesting. Williams out of Tennessee is also interesting at DT.

Antonio Coleman is a guy I am looking at for OLB.

Suh out of Nebraska looks like he could be a solid 3-4 end.

I'm still going on the basis that we'll be looking for a QB. Unfortunately we lost our shot at Bradford. Go ahead and laugh now, but Tim Tebow is going to surprise in the NFL even though he played in Urban Meyer's offense. There are NFL people who believe this. He may well go top 15 and has physical tools, terrific character and he's extremely bright, plus has the speed and mobility Orton/Simms don't. Terrance Cody would be awesome but he's going to be long gone IMO.

Please tell me you're not serious about Tebow. Dude will be lucky to be drafted in the 2nd round. His QB skills just don't translate to the pro game. He's just a taller version of Chris Leak.

I agree that Tebow doesn't look like a pro QB, but after watching Pat White go in the second, I could see some team picking him on the first day.

This is a big year for Tebow, because UF brought in former pro offense coordinator to run the offense and be Tebow's QB coach. In the spring practicesthey ran a lot plays from under center and have modified Tebow's mechanics (feet and throwing motion).

Absolutely, they are as different as an elephant and something that is nothing like an elephant.

Leak was a short QB with a questionable arm and Tebow is the most exciting wild-car H-back of all time.

I'd bet $$$ that we will target a QB next year. McCoy, Bradford, Tebow, Snead, Hiller, Pike... the list is long of guys that could go in the first two rounds. I like Tebow b/c of his savvy. He is a rally the troops type that would fit perfectly into the team oriented/team before self type mentality McD covets. Plus he can run the Gator O, a hybrid of the Wildcat with a little more 'bite' if you catch my drift. ;D

Not to be contrarian but I think the exact opposite... I think Orton will be fine and it's not like he's over the hill. I still think defensive front 7 is our biggest need by far but after this past draft don't be fooled... McD sticks to his board rather than what "needs" we have.

why are you down on the fact that, instead of reaching on guys who our coaches feel may suck just because they play a position of need, they took guys who are going to contribute to the team.

reaching for guys who play positions of need is why we are stuck with a ****ty defense, paying guys like Moss and Crowder to sit on the bench or stand on the sidelines as inactives, instead of contribute.

Have to see how all our rookies and second year players do this year; and whether or not we get rid of guys like Marshall, etc. -- it'd also depend on how well our new players adjust schematically offensive and defensively. Hopefully Chicago will tank, because it's a shame we could miss out on a lot of quality DL prospects, even linebackers.

I agree with the thought process that it's too early to say definitively whom we might be interested in because we have to see what we have in regards to our young players. Also, we know that McD is proactive in Free Agency, so even when the year is up, it will still be hard to nail it down. That said, I do have some theories.

First, this is going to be an extremely deep draft, in no small part to the likely fact it will be the last draft before a rookie wage scale is implemented (2011 draft). Thus, the big ticket positions, such as most of the offensive skill positions, Left Tackle, and D-linemen should be extremely deep. Then, of course, you'll have the elite players at other positions also in the mix. My main point being that excellent players are going to fall to the end of the 1st. Heck, I'll wager that we'll have players going in the Late 2nd next year that likely would have been late 1st rounders this year. I expect this to be one of the more amazing drafts, in terms of talent, that we will *ever* see. The only position that appears to be extremely weak at this time is Cornerback, which might have played into our thought process in the draft day trade to select Alphonso Smith.

Players will always rise and fall, but at this point in time, it appears to me that 3-4 Defensive End talents will be ripe for the picking in the Late 1st, and that also appears to be our most likely position of dire need, at least thats the odds as I see them at this time. Anyway, there are 3 players that I believe are extremely likely possibilities for our #1 selection that should likely be in the Late 1st Round (Chicago Bears have the easiest schedule in the NFL this season). These players are 3-4 DE candidates, Arthur Jones, Jared Odrick, and Vince Oghobaase. I know Oghobaase seems to be a fairly popular name to toss around at this point for a Denver selection, but he really fits what we are looking for. He's intelligent, a team leader, has versatility to play either DE or NT, and he has flawless size/strength. If there ever was a McDaniels "guy" based on what he declared his ideal player character traits to be after this draft, Vince appears to be it. Meanwhile, Odrick has unlimited upside, but does have some slight character concerns and durability questions. The most glaring being a drunken fight from March. His talent is immense though. Finally, Arthur Jones might have the highest upside of all three, and would probably be long gone at this point except he suffered a torn pectoral in February, had subsequent surgery, but figures to struggle with it all the same to some extent, so he should drop a little. These are all 3 excellent 3-4 DE prospects that should be there in the late 1st Round.

In the 2nd Round, if our NTs do not impress this season, we have another three options which I think are absolute locks to be there at our *likely* early 2nd round selection. Dan Williams, Boo Robinson, and Al Woods. Dan Williams is probably the highest rated, and we will be extremely familiar with him due to scouting his former teammate Robert Ayers. Williams was dynamite last season before getting injured. The question with him becomes at what size is he going to play at, as he reportedly slimming down to the 310 range, down from 325. Regardless, it's safe to assume we know an awful lot about this prospect already. Like Oghobaase, Boo Robinson is another common name that floated around Bronco draft forums. And like Vince, there is good reason. This is another high character, leader type guy with intelligence, size, and production. He's what McDaniels looks for, and he's tailor-made for a 3-4 NT. The question becomes whether we need a NT or not, and if so, Robinson has to be our most likely 2nd Round option at this point. Finally, Al Woods is a potential-based selection. He's had a stellar spring, he's always had a ton of hype and was highly recruited, and he's a workout warrior. He's been relatively quiet as a rotation player on LSU's line, but if he dominates his Senior Year like Robert Ayers did in Tennessee, he should catapult into the 2nd Round area.


As for other 1st/2nd Round options, I think it's likely limited to QB, WR, and OLB. At QB, I think we might bite if Colt McCoy is available in the Late 1st, but I personally expect Orton to do fine and be re-signed. It's hard to imagine anyone not being successful behind our line with our skill players. So, I think the likelihood of a QB in the draft is small, especially with Simms signed another season, and Brandstater developing. Thus, that leaves WR and OLB. The Patriots refused to draft WRs high, the one exception Chad Jackson (2nd Round) busted. The Patriot way is to plug in veteran WRs via Free Agency, and I think we'll likely follow that path. Right now, our WR roster is extremely stacked, but more importantly full. A trade or giving up upon Marshall would be the only way we touch a WR early in the draft. However, even if we trade him, I still don't expect us to draft a WR early because that doesn't mesh with the belief that McD was raised on under Belichick. That said, there are some intriguing late 1st - early 2nd prospects in LaFell, Benn, Bryant, Williams, and Decker. Some of those would have to fall to us. The one position outside of DE/DT that I believe might be a realistic option is OLB. Ayers is going to be starting at one spot for awhile, I believe Crowder will lock down the other side, and that Dumervil will walk after this season. If Crowder struggles though, that opens the door to spend an early selection on another conversion DE-type, and there looks to be a ton of top prospects that will be available, definitely to the point that we can lock down a potential starter in the Late 1st or Early 2nd (Selvie, Griffen, Lang, Hughes). But I think it's more likely we take a depth OLB in the 3rd round, someone like Auston English.



So, based on all that thinking, I suppose I'd like to see our draft start off with:

1) LDE Vince Oghobaase - Duke
2) NT Boo Robinson - Wake Forest
3) OLB Auston English (pass rush specialist/depth) - Oklahoma

and go from there. I'd like to see us get some quality OT depth, more CB depth (with size), WR depth (with size) to replace Stokley, and maybe a 3rd TE to replace Scheffler that has receiving skills, but can also chip in at FB.

So, perhaps round 4-7 might look like this: (Note: I'll avoid the indepth analysis of these players, but suffice it to say, they are McD-type guys as well and highly productive, if unknown at this time).

4) WR Kerry Meier (Also backup QB and Punter) - Kansas
5) CB Alterraun Vernor - UCLA
6) OT James Williams - Harvard
7) TE Nate Byham (FB/H-back) - Pittsburgh



So, there ya go, that's who I want. I'll have to put that in my sig.

I really wish you'd post more MUG.

Nice post, looks like there'll be some D-Line talent to be had next year which is nice.

Really torn over the Alphonso trade. If he doesn't turn into a good CB and then we suck this year and miss out on some of the talent in the Top 10 then it could haunt us.

On the flip side, CB is a couple of years away from being a dire and with next year's group really sucking it's apparent that the FO made the Smith move with this in mind.

the team could use a guy with Tebow's leadership, toughness, football knowledge and ability to fire up the troops. I am not sold on his skills being able to make the transition to the pro game. But i will watch him this year in Florida's supposedly more pro style offense and possibly change my mind on him.

It was a big thing last year as to whether Tebows time in the phillippines hurt his progress as a Qb and hurt the team. This was kicked around a lot after the Ole Miss loss. Tebow set passing records in florida HS football. Thats not exactly the NFL but he can throw better than some give him credity for.

BTW, running a more pro style offense will kind of transition them to the following year when Brantley takes over.

As the season progresses, I think we'd be well served to land the 2 following players, wherever it needs to be. The great teams have many resources up front and adding these 2 beasts would go a long way in solidifying the frront 3. I think we can get em in rounds 2 and 3, but both could skyrocket come draft time. Especially Williams w/ the way he's been playing on National TV vs SEC competition over the past month.

JARED, ODRICK, DL, Penn State
6'5" 296
Odrick appears to be a great fit as a 3-4 DE. He has played DE and DT at Penn State and has the size and athleticism to handle 3-4 end in the NFL. Very productive, hard nosed player.
http://i585.photobucket.com/albums/ss291/atwater271/odrick.jpg


DAN WILLIAMS, DT, Tennessee
6'3" 327
I truly believe he skyrockets up the draft boards by the time April hits. In a 3-4. I think he could play either the NT or DE spots. Although our ends have held up thus far, we still could use an infusion of talent. WIlliams is a beast of a man and has a great frame for his size.

I like Arthur Jones, Spikes or McClain in the first round unless Dez Bryant or Franchise Qb falls to Broncos. The 4 Qb I would take in the first are Mallett,Clausen, Locker or Bradford.

In the 2 round I like Oghobasse , Johnson guard from alabama. Goldern Tate from Norte Dame, Mathews running back from Fresno state, McKnight running back from USC , or a top center prospect.

I would love a draft of 1. Arthur Jones 2. Maurice Pouncy 3. Joe McKnight.

So anybody have any favorites here yet? What positions do we need help at? I'm looking at this roster and it's still one that is greatly in flux for me. My preference would be to build around our defense and improve our front 7. Seems that there are some great options right around 15. The more I look at this offense though, the more I see a crew that could fall off in any number of positions if we don't take care of some issues.

Here's my breakdown of the roster:

QB: Long term solution is needed here, or at least competition. Orton has done a very solid job this year but average measurables will only get you so far IMO unless the talent around him is loaded. I wouldn't mind looking for a solution around 3rd or 4th round.

HB: I have suspicions that Moreno will not be the every down back that people are hoping for. Buckhalter is a solid, blue collar HB but is older and has sustained a bunch of knee injuries. Peyton Hillis seems like a guy McDaniels will hold on to for special teams purpose only. We could use some serious depth here.

WR: Brandon Marshall coming up on a contract year, Eddie Royal becoming more of a part time WR, special teams factor, less of a offensive stud. Stokely is getting old. Gaffney is irrelevant for the most part. Depth is needed here as well.

Interior OL: Hamilton will not cut it here much longer. Weigmann is getting older. Kuper is a free agent. Very real possibility that this becomes a critical need sooner than later.

DL: Am I the only one that feel's we lack playmakers here? We have a bunch of solid guys but really lack playmakers, so much so we had to go hire Vonnie Holiday during the last week of the preseason and he's having a impact on our roster. Reid, KPeterson, and McBean are all solid but situational guys in my mind. Ronald Fields is gritty but not great. Robert Ayers gives us potential at one end. But we won't truly be great until we put some weapons around Dumervil and the rest.

LB: DJ Williams and Elvis Dumervil are having great years. Andra Davis has been very good in spurts but is getting longer in the tooth. Haggins is unspectacular but gets the job done. I doubt Wesley Woodyard, all 222 lbs of him, never makes a huge impact in the 3-4 where size is required at this position. Talent and better fits could be used for this group.

DB: Champ and Goodman will be 9 vets or older next season. So will Renaldo Hill and B. Dawk. This is the type of secondary where the floor can drop out from under them quickly. We've brought in A. Smith, McBath (both 2nd rounders) and took Bruton who seems to be very good as well. Still, depth will be required here as well.

Punter: Huge hole in our lineup right now.

So here are some of my favorites, assuming the Bears draft around 15:

<a href="http://photobucket.com/images/dez%20bryant" target="_blank"><img src="http://i381.photobucket.com/albums/oo252/mustang_3-1/dezzzzzzzz.jpg" border="0" alt="dez bryant Pictures, Images and Photos"/></a>

Dez Bryant - WR - OKState: would give Denver the versatility of having three great playmakers at WR. We could bump Royal over to the slot and let Marshall and Bryant play out on the corners. In the time that I've seen Bryant play, he's an excellent route runner for his size with great hands, good speed and excellent vertical ability. In that aspect he has some Larry Fitzgerald characteristics. Kyle Orton is never going to break a WR's fingers with his fast balls but he's pretty accurate. Get him too large possession receivers and it will help him drastically. Royal slides over to the slot and becomes Casino Royal again.

<a href="http://photobucket.com/images/cj%20spiller" target="_blank"><img src="http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t280/tmel07/Football%20pt1/Spiller.jpg" border="0" alt="Cj Spiller Pictures, Images and Photos"/></a>

C.J. Spiller - HB - Clemson: I think Spiller has been hyped through the ages as it seems he's been on the collegiate stage forever. I haven't watched enough of his games to see how his blocking is, but he can run and catch. His speed reminds me very much of Chris Johnson coming out of ECU and he may just be the best player on the board. I think we'll have to have somebody who can share the load with Moreno.

<a href="http://photobucket.com/images/rolando%20mcclain" target="_blank"><img src="http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u58/J3R3MY0692/favorite%20ncaa%20players/bilde-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Alabama LB Rolando McClain Pictures, Images and Photos"/></a>

Rolando McClain - LB - Alabama: I think the guy can play inside or outside. I think he can play the run and the pass, along with rushing the passer. One of the most fluid LB's i've seen and a guy that comes across as the leader of Nick Saban's top ranked Bama defense. He's physical, intense and he comes with a blue chip pedigree. Sign me up.

<a href="http://photobucket.com/images/terrence%20cody" target="_blank"><img src="http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/pp59/wheble_2008/college%20football/bigboy.jpg" border="0" alt="terrance cody Pictures, Images and Photos"/></a>

He's gross to look at but he's got the build to be a 10-12 year NT in the NFL. Strong as an ox, he can hold down the middle of the field. He's also a monster on special teams. I don't have the stats in front of me but I think he's block 4 or 5 FG's over the past year or so.

Here are some others:

Corey Wootton - DE - Northwestern:

BPC I need looking and this how I see our needs and who I would like them to draft

In order
1. DE/DT - Allen Bailey (MAI) JR but I like his skills set and reminds me of Pryce
2. Guard - Mike Johnson (ALA) SR - I think he fits this offense
3. QB -Tom Hiller (WMU) - struggled this season, but has the arm, brain and release to play in this scheme
4. ILB - Micah Johnson (KY) tough ILB that could take over for Davis
5. WR - Jacoby Ford (CLEM) - Speed to burn from both the Slot and KR/PR
6. RB - Keiland Williams (LSU). I think he better pro the college player

I love Mike Johnson. This draft class will be deep. I think we could land him in round 2.

QB seems like it's strong too. Definitely should be able to find a quality player in rounds 2-4.

I think there is a ton of value in the DL/LB position this year. I got a chance to watch Von Miller yesterday... he would look crazy coming off the edge opposite of Elvis. I love Corey Wootton. He's coming off a injured ACL last year in Northwestern's bowl game against Mizzou and has been slowed this year... he was the player that took out Iowa's QB yesterday. Once he gets his legs back under him, he would be a favorite of mine in round 1.

Build around this defense. Make it dominant for years to come. My hope is that McNugget can bring a underrated QB along and develop a offense on the cheap.

I actually see LG as the bigger need after the past 2 weeks. Orton had 1 bad game in 8. I'm not gonna crap on him for that. Pittsburgh attacked Hamilton all night and that is where their pressure came from. We need a STUD up there. The kid from Idaho may be perfect since we no longer run the zone schemes.

Christian Ponder said he's likely returning for his senior year after his injury.

Smart move. He has chance to sneak into the late first, early second next draft if he plays well.

We do run zone but if hamilton is injured and has no mobility or flexibility, the ZBS isnt necessarily the best option.
