There will obviously be added media scrutiny, but if he fits their defensive schemes I would be proud of the Broncos if they chose him. This team is as experienced/ready as any for a little added coverage of the pre-season.

Yeah, it's ****ed up that an organization will get a pat on the back simply for choosing the best available player and not discriminating against him, but given the climate of the NFL up to now, the front office that picks him will know they are making a stance of sorts. It would be very easy to choose the guy just beneath him on the draft board and let some other teams deal with ugly emails and being on ESPN all summer.
