That is who I want as well. I thought he was bigger than 301 lbs though. Maybe i read that he could get bigger. 320 sticks in my mind though.

A legitimate 7-8 DTs that could go in the first round.

no, he's been bigger than that in the past but slimmed down to play DE(which he did 2 seasons ago) and they moved him back to DT this season after it finally dawned on the coaching staff that he's best at DT.

305-310 lbs would be his ideal weight for the type of DT that he is.
plus it would allow him to remain a flex type to get out at DE on some downs and really be flexible.

7-8 DTs in the first...would love for us invest in this position with a high round pick................

As long as teams keep VON in coverage types of defenses Doom is gonna struggle...........we need some interior line PUSH...........

Another DE would be a plus as well.............

I like the DE depth and feel Denver has bigger needs. Wolfe, Ayers and Von hold that position down pretty well in rotation. Who is the guy on the practice squad that seemed to show a lot of promise? Anyway, I think Denver has bigger issuses at OL, RB, CB, S, WR/Slot and MLB. Of course if they saw a FA that they like at a good price that would be wonderful but I would not want to use a high or mid-level draft pick on one.

I also do not see 7-8 DTs going in the first round so that means I think Denver will have a shot at a top 4-6 DT when they pick increasing their value at 28.

EDIT: Jeremy Beal is the practice squad guy at DE that might be able to step up this year and contribute.

Floyd would be awesome, but Walter has him seriously underrated. A lot of people have him going in the Top 15 now and an article from NFP stated that around 10 personnel people in the NFL believe that and some feel he could even go Top 10. Some think he can be as good as Warren Sapp. That is high praise. He has two-gapping experience, but he is a premier UT in the NFL as a 3-tech rushing the passer. The same goes for Short, who is probably my favorite player in the draft.

Nobody can be for sure who the Broncos like or who they will choose, but I have a feeling they will go after some big-bodied players or those who have had NT experience in college that translates well into what we do here. A few names of middle to late round guys who would could work here in our rotation:

Corey Grissom, Brandon Williams, Omar Hunter (Gators NT, Floyd's teammate), Kwame Geathers and T.J. Barnes. I have concerns about the conditioning of the last two, but I think these guys would be good fits here. Obviously I want a high impact guy, but we will probably ignore drafting a DT at one of the best drafts for it all-time.

Lots to choose from. The Broncos should be able to walk away from this draft with at least one solid rotational DT. If they get a quality MLB and DT in this draft, and maybe a quality RB too, I'd be very happy with the draft.

i wouldn't say he has him underrated. he's projected about right before the combine. he was a 2nd or 3rd before the last 6-7 weeks of the season. and the bowl game vs Louisville really propelled him further up boards.

The problem with Kawann Short, is that he is 24 years old (he's actually older than Derek Wolfe).

It's tough to get a bead on how good he is, because he's often matched up against players who are 2 and 3 years younger than him (in college). I'm not even sure he's better than other younger prospects last year (like Jerel Worthy or Devon Still).

A lot depends on how fast he runs, and how much he lifts at the combine. My question is: is Kawann Short, just another Brodrick Bunkley? If so, the Broncos may be better served to draft a bigger NT (like John Jenkins), who by his mere size would generate an automatic double-team (theoretically). What are your thoughts?

A guy who can take double teams at 308 is more impressive than a guy at 330 who can do it. The big difference between college and the NFL is that most guards in the NFL can deal with a 330 pound NT, there are only so many Haloti Ngatas and Vince Wilforks, but there are plenty of fatties who never amount to anything.

Brandon Williams and T.J. Barnes are going to go higher than that.

Bacchus, if you take something from WalterFootball.com -- you should at least link to it. You can't copy and paste full stuff like that on the site, per TJ's rules.

Not trying to get after you, just lettin' you know.

Yeah, he stands a very good chance of soaring after the combine. He's a ridiculous athlete for his size.

We shall see how he looks on MONDAY

I can not wait, INDY is frigid and very awful weather wise right now, but its going to be nice for when the players arrive starting tomorrow with ST's and QB's.

This is the deepest DT draft in years, with some HUGE NT's available that can actually play football, not just be large Cones for OL to toss around. DE/OLB is not poor either. It's a Defensive smorgasbord

So Mediator, who do you like for the Broncos first pick? Who do you like for their 3rd to 4th round pick at DT.

Here is Walter Football's big board which looks a lot different than their DT list. Looks like Floyd moved up to the 16th best player out of Denver's range I imagine.

Kawann Short is going to be a really solid player for someone, he is a good fit in the 4-3 and can play either DT position.

Wow, this guy is a load!!

Jonathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia
Height: 6-3. Weight: 359. Arm: 33 1/8. Hand: 9 1/2.
Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
Projected Round (2013): 1.

2/1/13: Jenkins racked up 50 tackles, two tackles for a loss and a sack in 2012. He stood out with good games against Missouri, South Carolina, Florida and Auburn. Jenkins played well in the SEC Championship and beat Alabama guard Chance Warmack for a sack.

Jenkins is a load at the line of scrimmage who can collapse the pocket while stuffing runs. He helped his stock this season and was dominant at the Senior Bowl. Jenkins was destroying interior linemen with his bull rush and showed some serious explosiveness off the snap. It isn't out of the question for Jenkins to be mid first-rounder.

8/25/12: The junior college product Jenkins showed off massive size with some surprising athleticism in his debut last year for the Bulldogs. The junior had 28 with six tackles for a loss and three sacks.

Jenkins is a massive load at the line of scrimmage. He is a natural fit as a zero-technique nose tackle in a 3-4 defense. It helps that Jenkins already plays that position for Georgia.
