What it does not have, is a ton of sure fire, can't miss all pros at the top of the draft in skill positions like QB, WR, RB, and DE. So, the Premium positions are lacking star power, but WR and DT are the deepest Classes I have ever seen and CB and Safety are extremely deep as well. The DB's in this draft are not Elite, but there are so many guys who can come in and play the #2 and #3 spots for teams and therefore get about 65% of the snaps on defense that there is no way you can say this is a poor draft overall.

You can say it lacks Elite players in the top 10 out side of the OL which has 5 of the Best prospects in years coming out though. It is a good year to restock and dump below average players who still are on rosters. It's a tremendous opportunity to build with young players and long term IMHO.
I agree. I am also rock hard on the defensive tackle classes. Could be the best in a decade. It is just really out of this world. I am so anxious for the draft. I can't wait to see what we do!

Now that the OM Draft is over, I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on prospects and who you really like as fits for the team.
  • What do you think about Kevin Reddick?
  • Who is your favorite RB in this class for Denver?
  • Particular prospects at any position that you believe would fit well in our system?
