Adopt-a-Bronco:
Mike Shanahan
Default Manti runs

Unofficial times of 4.81 and 4.80

Plays a little faster but don't think we can afford to throw that on the field in the nickel

Yes, that too.

I wouldn't take either in the first now.

Hoping they shift focus to OL in the first.

Depends on the system, Laurinaitis ran a 4.88 and he is doing pretty well in St Louis.

Minter ran slow, Ogletree did okay but not great. Bostic with 4.50 is. Kaseem Greene not shining either.

But you stated these are "Unofficial" times.... they could be even slower than advertised.

If Manti is available at 28, I am telling you now, he will be a Denver Bronco.

I have a funny feeling about that too. I felt that Minter, Olgetree, Reddick, and T'eo would run alot faster than those times. I guess it doesn't really matter because they will get their times down by their pro days. I would much rather us now kinda trade down in the early second and 3 to a team that wants a QB and get a safety (Reid), MLB (Minter), RB (Micheal for A&M), and slot receiver (Stills) in the 2nd and 3rd. But that's wishful thinking!

4.8? Clearly, you're using the word "run" in the loosest sense.

Unless Ogletree somehow falls to Denver I think we can close the book on a Mike in the 1st. OL is an obvious need as is CB help and maybe a playmaker like Austin if he's available at 28.

Hard to square 7 INT's with a 4.8 40 time. Maybe he is just having an off day?

One was throwing right at his numbers and 4 came off tipped balls. Looks to me the DL should get credit for those INTs.

College INTs are about as good a measure of ability as their zodiac sign. He had 0 INTs in his first 3 seasons combined, the INTs he had this year is an outlier. 4.8 is about what he will do, he might get it up to 4.75 at his pro day, but he is not an athletic guy like Von Miller.

Oh come on. Compared to Miller every lineman or linebacker in the league is a snail.

If Teo is there at 28 I have to believe the Broncos take him off the boards.

Teo was 20th out of 26 for the 40
Compared to NFL linebackers he is a bit slow

That said I think we probably would take him if we fell to us
But not overly impressed with him at the moment

The bama game was pathetic, and he is showing us there is nothing special about him from a talent standpoint

OL would be a waste in the first.

Because there's a lack of talent at the top of the draft or because you don't think it's a need? Personally, I never think it's a bad idea to add talent to the OL.

It would be funny if we grabbed Kyle Long. Howie might die a little inside.

If we are drafting an OL @ 28 he needs to be starting right away.

Who and what position?

Think the team is going to do what it takes to add playmakers to a defense that played out of the nickel 65% of the time last year. I really think it is going to be a LB or DB.

How is it different, or more wasteful, than CB? We already have two starters and a good #3.

Because all of our starters on OL are under 30, one of our starters on CB is one of the 5 oldest players in the league and our current nickel guy needs to show more consistency.

And all but one are returning from injury. And one is serious enough that people are contemplating cutting him.
