Denver Broncos Prospect Meetings
 
Starting this thread early. @WalterFootball is reporting that the Broncos have scouted and talked to Fresno State guard Austin Wentworth.

Don't know much about him, but this is what CBS Sports says:

2013 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST FIRST TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): OL Austin Wentworth, Sr., Fresno State,...Wentworth led the offensive line that paved the way for the Bulldog offense that ranked third nationally in total offense (570.6) and fifth in scoring (45.3). Fresno State also only allowed 11 sacks in 12 games, which tied for the ninth fewest of any team in the FBS. - Fresno State football

07/22/13 - 2013 PRESEASON ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST FIRST TEAM (MEDIA): OL Austin Wentworth, Sr., Fresno State...Wentworth enters his senior season having made 30 career starts, including 28 consecutive. He is one of 60 active players in the FBS that has started in 30 or more games and one of eight that play in the Mountain West. - Fresno State football "

Possible replacement for Beadles?

Probably not, Tony Pauline said he sucked ass during practice. But that is the only name I've been able to find that we've met with besides Jimmy Garoppolo saying he's met with every team.

I tell you what though, I've been tinkering with Mock Drafts, and the BPA when we pick at the end of the first is usually David Yankey. He's a flawless fit as an athletic Left Guard in college. Maybe that's our replacement for Beadles.

Thanks for the info. In re: Yankey --If he comes in and starts right away he is worth it. He is a guy I am really like. I would prefer defense, but who knows if a DE/LB/DB will be there at our selection.

I just want Gilbert pls.

BowlenBall 01-17-2014 05:50 AM

Yankey played at Stanford as well -- that can't hurt when Elway's the one pulling the trigger.

We also met with Deone Buccanon from Washinton State and Ahmad Dixon from Baylor. Looks like we are interested in upgrading strong safety.

Would still prefer to take Pryor, but there are some thumpers in this draft. The tape I have seen from Craig Loston has me very intrigued, he's not just a thumper, he's a fluid athlete who can stick tightends.

If we go early safety I vote Pryor, if we take a mid round safety I'm leaning towards Loston.

Doggcow 01-29-2014 12:00 AM

Buchanon from wazzu is a good player. He has been a staple for us and one of the few bright spots. Can definitely make a hit, reads plays well with good range.

I haven't seen him do a lot behind the LOS, however, that is probably more of our team being mediocre with little to no push.

From what I have watched on him this far, he is a downhill thumper. Since you have watched him more closely, do you think he's a good athlete with fluid hips to turn and run with a TE?

That's what we need from a SS, the ability to cover a TE while also delivering the wood against the run.

Lestat 01-29-2014 07:02 PM

Ha-Ha,Deone and Pryor are the three safeties I like most in this draft. I like that we met with Deone. Could be a really nice 2nd round pick, might even slide into the late first.

I have some questions about his hips and ability in coverage. Pryor and Ha-ha are labeled free safeties, but I think both could play either position.

I do think he is somewhat stiff and a thumper more than a coverage guy but Buchanan is good enough to lessen his coverage issues in the right scheme.

I think the same thing about Ha-Ha especially. He seems to be somewhat of a tweener but he makes plays and would fit best as a SS in the NFL IMO.
Imagine he and Rahim back in coverage, he would help make up for some of Rahim's knack for not making the pick.

Lestat 02-05-2014 01:55 PM

Denver Broncos:
Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson (SR)
Deone Bucannon, DB, Washington State (SR)
Ahmad Dixon, DB, Baylor (SR)
Shamar Stephen, DL, Connecticut (SR)
Austin Wentworth, G, Fresno State (EW)

I completely missed the meeting with Boyd earlier apparently.
That is interesting. I know Elway loves looking at QB's.

I think we can do better than Moore. There's needs to be legit competition brought in at both safety positions.

Think about what you said Moore's knack for not making the pick. Moore hasn't shown any ball hawking ability, any ability to create turnovers, he still takes bad angles. He does usually make the touchdown stopping tackle in run defense, but he's really nothing more than a solid player.

We need more play makers on defense, whether that means ball hawks, thumpers, blanket coverage players, sack specialists, whatever the case may be. We need to improve depth and talent across the board.

ludo21 02-06-2014 07:39 AM

Agreed, both Safety spots need some more competition brought in with some playmaking ability.

I am fine with Moore. He was making Duke look hella good before his injury.
He doesn't make a ton of plays but he's solid and any S draftee we bring in will take 2-3 years to fully blossom.
So I would rather have the SS position situated and leave Moore back there to help lessen the experience blow.

Moore is just solid, I'm not saying cut him, but there should no doubt be competition brought in to push at the position. Both safety positions really. We don't know how Moore will play post his injury anyway.

Lestat 02-06-2014 10:40 PM

I agree on the competition part. Just see SS as a much bigger need.
Unless Ha-Ha and Deone fall into our laps back to back I don't see why FS would be a huge need to address early on.

Could always take Pryor in the first and Logston in the second.

Not in love with Pryor enough to pass over a DL or CB for him in the first.
Loston will probably fall to the 3rd.

barryr 02-09-2014 09:50 AM

Safety is a huge need for the Broncos. They haven't had an impact safety in years. Both safety spots should be up for grabs sine none of the current players are locks, including Moore IMO.

SoCalBronco 02-15-2014 02:53 PM

They need to develop a young slot guy. I hope they look at Hurns in the mid to late rounds.

I love Hurns, but with how deep this WR class is he may not even get drafted. He is good at a lot of things, but I think will just be another guy at the next level.

phibacka31 02-24-2014 07:19 AM

Broncos apparently met with:
Kapri bibbs rb csu and Avery Williamson lb Kentucky

According to Walter football

Mat'hir Uth Gan 02-25-2014 04:39 AM

We have to draft/sign our annual Kentucky LB.
