They're also getting some insanely good values on short term deals. Vasquez is now looking like the big money signing and he'll be barely 30 when his deal is up. Welker for 2/$12M and DRC for 1/$5M are crazy value signings.
What the signing do, is allow any player that Denver draft to grow into the position and not be force into the starting lineup. That being said I could see them taking a CB in the first and boosting the receiving corp in the mid rounds.
