I think the Broncos need a complete player at RDE.
I would be happy if the Broncos picked Collins with their 1st pick (like Wolfe), if Carradine/Moore are gone. He could be gone by 58. It's no problem that he has 3-4 OLB skills, he's big and physical enough to play on the DL, and has shown good ability to rush the passer. He could develop into a special player. I'm sure he wouldn't start this year, but he would get a lot of PT behind Ayers leading into 2014.
