Default Forget about Patrick Peterson. Not. Happening.

Brian Xanders all but confirmed that Denver will be taking a defensive lineman on 104.3 The Fan today.

Right at the end of the interview he was asked what he was looking to do with the No. 2 pick and here was his answer. "We want a disruptive, playmaker that causes negative plays in the run game and in terms of sacks. That is a good person who loves football and wants to be a Denver Bronco for the next 15 years."

That means Da'Quan Bowers... no other player fits the Sack Master and Good Person mold in this draft. Well, Bowers and Von Miller that is.

Be cool with DL if happens but, kind of disappointed we are staying with NEED drafting vs BPA drafting.

When three of the top four prospects fit his description, I'd hardly call that need based drafting

That high in the draft, unless you're reaching in a terrible year, you can usually find someone that fits need and can still make it in the BPA argument.

And even if BPA was the answer, you have to curb that at some point. The best DL player might be better than having a really awesome 3rd string DB who someone's draft board ranks just a smidgeon higher.

Although I don't think you can go wrong with Peterson or Bowers, I think Peterson is enough of a better player to warrant selecting him when he isn't as glaring of a need.

With that said, scheme specific drafting based on needs has worked out pretty well for the Falcons. As long as you have someone who can legitimately scout talent, needs-based drafting works pretty well.

How do you know our front office thinks Patrick Peterson is a better player than Nick Fairley, Da'Quan Bowers, Marcell Dareus or whoever else? Despite what some people say around here, it's not an immutable fact written on a stone tablet somewhere that Patrick Peterson is hands down, unquestionably the best player in the draft.

Peterson and Dareus are my top 2 choices in round 1. IMO Peterson is BPA overall. Dareus is my fav DL.

Your right any player can be hyped as BPA and end up being a flop its the risk all teams take.

No matter what side I take or others take we need to hit jackpot with our top pick.



I would be cool with Bowers or Fairley because it fills a major hole on our D which we need badly. I'll be thrilled that we filled a huge need on draft night but, far more scared that we failed to pick the best DL in 2011 draft vs drafting Peterson who is way more likely to be one of the gems in this draft.

Even Xanders isn't stupid enough to be giving real info away.

Well just to be on the same side hopefully the Elway/Fox braintrust will keep any legitimate information away from him so he can't spill the beans.

I'd be honestly surprised if they shared (or intend to share) any legitimate high value information with Xanders....ever.

I don't have much respect for Xanders and would tend to agree. However, there isn't really much reason to keep anything a secret picking #2. Carolina isn't going to pick someone just because Denver wants him and I don't believe anyone is going to trade up to #1 to get one of the DT's.

Perhaps not, but someone might be looking to trade up to get Cam Newton, who is apparently rising very quickly. Either Carolilna or Denver could have the option of trading down, and if we do I don't think it's to our advantage to make our intentions known if we are drafting somewhere like 6th or so. Trading down a few spots is much more attractive if we still get the guy we want. Besides...what if a possible trading partner were to offer a 2nd opportunity to move down. It behooves us to keep our true intentions to ourselves...unless of course John Elway thinks the draft should be subject to his new transparency measures.

With the 2nd pick, it's not like he has to worry about showing his hand that much.

Bowers.

I'd be happy with Bowers, Fairley, or Dareus.

By what Xanders is saying, I think theyre looking at Marcell.

I'm very worried about Von Miller. I don't see how he fits here at his weight unless he gains like 15 pounds and plays WDE...except that Doom is already being paid tens of millions to be the WDE. There's only one other place he can go and I'm not liking it.

I say Have Woodyard at WLB, Williams at SLB and FA stop gap at MLB with a early draft pick to come in behind him.
