I dont know. Andrew Luck was pretty amazing too.

I think that they both sprung from the loins of Zeus.

I think it's better to trade Quinn/orton/tebow and #2 and then draft all DL. With a strong DL we won't need a QB.

What if Andrew Luck and Patrick Peterson were combined?

Patrick Luck....the most hyped prospect in orangemane history.

A QB/CB hybrid capable of destroying both the opposing offense and the opposing defense on his own. He runs a 2.1 40 (thats his high time...the lower time was thrown out because it was deemed physically impossible...a -1.2 40-yard dash). Weighs 655 lbs of pure steel. He's all of 7'8". Has an arm that throws 252 mph. He has never thrown a pick, but has picked off every pass thrown by an opposing QB...even if its across the field.

He played college ball for MIT...they put in a football program just for him. It was him and a bunch of engineering and neuroscience nerds and they went undefeated against every team in the Big 12 and SEC before shellacking Oklahoma 365-0 in the BCS title game. He won 4 straight Heismans...maintaining a 4.0 at MIT over the course of his degree, which he finished in a year. The subsequent 3 years were spent doing research on neural image mapping and synaptic plasticity, where he completed a PhD (his thesis won the Nobel Prize), finished 5 post-doc specialties, and established an entire research wing funded by a set of investments that he set up that compound yearly at 642%.

Tecmo Bo Jackson on Patrick Luck, "Pat knows mo than Bo."

He may be good enough and physical enough but at sub 240 you would think weakside in a 4-3. Really though ssl not a huge playmaker spot. I doubt any team takes him super high to play him at SSL which often leaves the field on 3rd downs for another dback.

"We want to be that fast, disruptive group," Xanders said.

Denver's defensive front will be smaller and quicker overall, especially at end and linebacker. Elvis Dumervil and Robert Ayers, at 245 and 274 pounds respectively, would play the right and left end positions.

The Broncos also want smaller, quicker linebackers. When Ayers, Mario Haggan, D.J. Williams and Wesley Woodyard started the 2010 season finale at linebacker, Denver had three linebackers who weighed at least 240 pounds and two were more than 260.

In the 2010 season finale for Fox's Panthers, they didn't start a linebacker weighing more than 237 pounds.

I would assume with Miller a team will put him on the edge with his hand on the ground on third downs. I could see us moving Ayers inside and putting Miller next to him opposite Doom.

That's my thought exactly. On the strong side, he has the ability to cover the TE, is a match up nightmare for a TE if he blitzes, and can move to the DL on 3rd down when a Sam normally comes off the field.

Its similar to what Matthews does in GB really, just with different semantics. Miller's got the versatility to give a creative DC a lot of options.

Although if he's the target we have to move back a little and try to get more value. Tough to do though, given that he's projected in the top 5 just about everywhere you look.

If he blows it up at the combine, he could move up even more.

I wonder how much that contributed to their sucky run defense last year.

You must be forgetting the time he picked off his own pass. (yes, it really is possible) He was going for the elusive football tripple double, which up until that point in time, was nothing but forklore.
