The Broncos draft Sly Williams in the first-round last year, so a heavy rotation will be used if Hageman is the pick. We doubt he will still be on the board.
What a coincidence. I love Hageman too. It's almost as if he's some highly athletic multi front usage DT with DE abilities.

Sure, SJB has size, but he only pressed around 34 percent of the time last season and lacked a physical attitude when doing so. Teams are hoping to mimic the Seahawks defense, but we do not view Jean-Baptiste close to a first-round talent
That is a full round over his value.
Mid 2nd to early third is his range even with his size.
