Absolutely awesome, there is no end to the meltdown that will follow if we draft a TE with a bad back at 10th overall.

Same dumbass writer said Suh won the Butkus award, you know the one that goes to the best LINEBACKER in the country. That went to McClain of Bama.

Lost all credibility before I even got to the Mock.

Youre welcome. Yeah, its pretty dumb. Did you see who he has being picked immediately after we take a TE? He has two guards going back to back. How often does a guard go in the first, let alone that high,...let alone two guards going that high?

Hahaha, he's also got back to back guards going at 11 and 12. The Chiefs only have so many picks, man.

Yes stupid OG don't go that high and if they did we would pick one, I would assume.

But a TE because Belichick did so is pretty dumb.

10th overall is pretty ****ing high for a tight end with serious back issues. Rob Gronkowski hardly saw the field this season for the Wildcats.

This mock has 5 offensive lineman going in the top 12 picks, and just one QB. Did I miss something? Is this like the strongest draft ever for offensive lineman?

Wow, I feel stupid for reading it.

There are a ton of crap mocks out there now. I have seen Denver picking anywhere from 8-17. Rolando McClain seems to be the popular choice. I have also seen the following going to Denver in a few other mocks.

Jimmy Clauson
Tim Tebow

I don't really get picking an ILB in the 1st round, LB is a very deep position this year and do my mind there is no reason not to wait until the 2nd. A lot of good LBs have been drafted in the 2nd round lately including Posluzny, Lofton, Woodley, David Harris, Ryans, Thomas Howard, Laurinaitis and Maualuga just to mention some in the last 4 years.

I would much rather have a defensive lineman or cornerback.

I saw McClain play last weekend vs Florida and the kid really looked good.... In my opinion he made Spikes look lost and slow. I love McClains size 6-4 258lbs and at that size he is still fast and does not miss tackles. Some of the comments I have read about him are:
In the Mold of Ray Lewis.... more like a bigger and better Damico Ryan

Better than Patrick Willis

Best LB from the SEC in years.

That is some high praise, You can never have enough to talent in your front 7.

So Denver needs to spend both of their 2010 1st round picks on cornerbacks? 32 isn't old for an NFL corner, especially when they're still playing well and this team still needs help in the front 7.

Sounds like a dream to me but I think you'd be hard pressed to say someone who hasn't played in the NFL yet is better than Patrick Willis, unless of course you were referring to his college days.

We have Daniel Graham, Tony Scheffler, and spent 2 3rd round picks to move up and take Richard Quinn in the 2nd round.

Denver is one of the deeper teams in the league when it comes to tight ends.

Yeah, McClain is a better athlete...he's better at the basics like tracking a ball carrier and making a tackle. If anything, Spikes might give you a little bit more of a play maker in the passing game. Spikes is good at blitzing and playing the ball while its in the air. Im not saying Spikes sucks against the run or that McClain sucks against the pass either. At this point Id rather have McClain. Spikes has had some really good games but also some really bad ones. Spikes has had dings though so maybe that plays in.

Who do we have at CB? Champ is going to get old sooner rather than later and god forbid he gets injured again. Goodman is looking decent when covering the other teams number 2 guy, but we have all seen him get abused this year in matchups. The only thing Al Smith has done to remind of us of his existence the last couple of weeks were his 3 penalties against the Chiefs, in fact he is so good that we brought in a 35 year old to take his spot.

We need depth at CB and fast, Champ and Goodman should be able to start next year with no problem barring injury, but after that it is anyones guess considering Champ is up for a new deal soon as well. As we have seen so beautifully demonstrated spending a high draft pick on a CB is no guarantee they will contribute right away (Al Smith), so lets make sure we have some decent depth in place before we need it.

How many starting CBs in the league are 33 or older? Charles Woodson, Al Harris, Mike Mckenzie, I can't think of anyone else.

In the Patriot system, rookies aren't drafted to come in and play right away. Even Merriweather didn't have a standout rookie year, but look at him now. The only time the Pats ever get serious production out of their players is if they are absolute beasts right out of the gate (Jerod Mayo).

A. Smith was drafted to learn behind the vets, and that's exactly what he's doing. It's as if we are using our mid-20's pick this year and drafting a ball-hawking corner, except we have an extra year of him learning from the best in the league and acclimating to NFL speed.

The days of drafting pure need and expecting instant contributions left the Broncos with Shanahan.

How do you explain Robert Ayers?

Hercules Rockefeller

Ayers was a depth pick? That's news to me.

But it's just awesome though, Denver will most likely be 10-15 spots ahead of where their record would place them in a deep draft, and we have people calling for a cornerback because Champ might not be as good in a few years as he is now.

Corner is also one of Denver's strongest units, unlike the Front 7 that Ayers is a part of. So, not really the best comparison when everyone thought the Front 7 would suck donkey balls coming into this season. McDaniels was actually addressing a need with that pick.

Rohirrim
12-10-2009, 01:51 PM
The thing I'm real curious to see is how many juniors come out. This could be the most "flooded" draft in history. We could even have a furious day three.

There's probably more help at CB in FA than LB or DL.

Walter started having some decent ones (for us anyway) going back a few weeks. I think one had us taking McClain, Odrick, and Canfield.

Edit-- Yeah, they had switched McClain with Haden. Now they have us with McClain again.

though Gronkowski was out for the entire season, and Arizona's entire offense
was built around Gronkowski.

That dude is smoking crack rock. Berry at 15? They'll be lucky if he make it past #5.

That is what I was thinking... you let a guy like Berry pass and you're going to regret it. That dude is another Ed Reed/Michael Griffin/Troy Palamalu type talent. If we pick at #10 I wouldn't mind it if he were the pick. The chances are very slim b/c of the depth at the position currently, but he would be an upgrade for sure. Mt. Cody is the guy I really want. We can get after the QB pretty well now. A clogger in the middle is the key right now.

Im not averse to taking Cody but Baker has looked like he might have some promise and also, maybe someone like Dan Williams can do a good job at NT. I also like McClain too though. I think theres less of a bust factor with him. It would be an interesting dilemma if we're drafting at 8 or 9 and someone like Berry falls to us with all the QBs entering the draft. You also have a couple of DTs who could go top 10. We took a lot of safeties last year but if someone like Berry AND McClain are there, what then?

bpc
12-11-2009, 12:42 AM
Cody's troubles have been listed. I'm not that high on him. Maybe he's the next coming of Gilbert Brown. Much different game in the NFL vs. college for a guy that plays as seldom as 30-40% of the defensive snaps for his team.

McClain has some skills, notably his measurables, size and speed ratio. When I watch him on film though I see a motor that's very hot and cold. Too much jogging for me at points. He looks like a Chris Claiborne clone. He isn't as good a player as DJ Williams was in college.

If we stay at #9 or 10, QB, WR, and DL/LB should be area we stick around. I like Clausen, Golden Tate, Dez Bryant or possibly Derrick Morgan should we stick around there.

McClain is at the top of my draft list, we have young talent along the d-line with McBean and Baker (If he develops). DJ, and McClain on the inside with Doom and Ayers on the outside would be an orange crush esque linebacking core.

Terrible Mock. On defense I vote for D-line, if not then LB. If Eric Berry is there (more then likely not) the go with that pick. On Offense I want a QB, but i can see McDaniels picking WR.
