The missing link between Franklin and Clady that will end our softness inside and make us mean and nasty.
Maybe we could trade the first, Beadles, to a passing team to move up just enough to draft Cooper. Or we could trade down to top of 2nd and take a guy like Fluker or Warford if they drop.
Or even wait until later and take a guard like Brian Winters who could at least give us more depth. i don't see him as nasty like Cooper and Warmack.
Chance is going to be great, but he would cost Denver too much. There are plenty of good guards. I'm not sure Denver is looking for a starter in this draft. I think they trade down into the 2nd round pick up a 4th and use a 4th or 5th on a guard. With Vasquez coming in and Kuper moving over to compete with Beadles I think Denver is fine. They have more pressing needs at this point.
