Tried to post this all morning yesterday... oh well.
Same as before, for us at least:
9. DENVER BRONCOS (f/WAS)
DE | Boston College | Scouting Report
If this pick ends up being in the top ten overall this trade will look much worse for the Redskins and they will have even more pie on their faces than they already do, but I guess that would be about par for the course these days. The Broncos might have the luxury of taking the best player available here, but the defensive line could end up being a major need if Courtney Brown and Trevor Pryce can't stay healthy like has been the case the past few years. A tall, rangy athlete and sack artist, "Kiwi" returned to school for his final season and should easily be the top senior end available on Draft Day. Denver may also look at one of the top offensive tackles since Matt Lepsis might not be with them much longer, but Kiwanuka is probably too good of a value to pass up, especially considering the uncertainty they have at the position.
24. DENVER BRONCOS
OG-OT | Oklahoma | Scouting Report
For a long time now the Broncos have consistently had one of the better offensive lines in football but the time has come for the addition of some young blood, especially since Matt Lepsis and Tom Nalen might not be around much longer. Joseph played guard last year for the Sooners on what had to be the best o-line in the country, but due to graduation losses he will move outside to tackle as a senior. If he comes through with the type of final campaign that he is capable of he should be right in the mix to be the first guard chosen on Draft Day '06. The team also took a chance on some high risk / high reward players along the defensive line so if all or some of them don't pan out that will be an area that will have to be addressed as well. Don't rule out a receiver either though, with Rod Smith nearing the end of his career and the failure of Ashley Lelie to develop into the premier #1 option some had envision he would a few years ago.
