Q&A: Dumervil's return changes the Broncos' draft strategy

Today's questions about the Broncos come from David Bishop. Send your questions via e-mail to jlegwold@denverpost.com.

Q: There is a lot of talk about Denver taking a defensive lineman with the No. 2 pick, but with the return of Elvis (Dumervil), I would like to see them take with their first three picks cornerback, linebacker and linebacker. And hopefully find a safety in the third round. Thoughts?

A: David, before the concern over Da'Quan Bowers' knee threatened to push him out of the draft's top 10, I never believed he would be the best player on the board when they picked at No. 2.

And the reason for that is exactly what you have pointed out Dumervil's return. Dumervil said even as last season drew to a close that he was approaching 100 percent. His return is the top reason Broncos coach John Fox has given when asked about the state of the defense.

So his return does impact the Broncos' draft strategy.
