I think the Broncos are going to have to trade up to #20-#22 to get their guy, whether it's Minter, Short, Rhodes, Okafor (or whomever).
They should easily be able to do it by packaging a 4th rounder (just like the Patriots did last year). I doubt they have enough draft savvy to pull it off, though.
Might be right on the trade up idea.
No matter how much I'd like it, I still can't fathom we spend a top resource on a player we'd use in a three man rotation that would only see the field 50% of the time. And again, John Fox has never prioritized DTs. And based on this previous season, he might be right with our scheme.
