Default Schefter- Broncos to select Von Miller at #2

Heard on ESPN radio,Adam Schefter is predicting the Broncos will select Mr. Von Miller at #2. Haven't seen anything linked to his report on the radio. I'd be okay with this pick, it's growing on me.

We shall see. Usually Schefty is pretty spot on.

That would be awesome. I really think Dareus and Fairley are out. A small clue was a couple of weeks ago when Elway made an off-hand remark about the short shelf-life of DTs. I think they will look to invest in a guy at #2 who is more likely to play at a high level for a decade plus.

I hope not on Allen Bailey. Guy has top 10 talent but never had the production to match. Those types rarely pan out. I'd rather take a less phyically gifted but all effort guy like Nevis.

Miller has definitely grown on me as a possible pick. We need a LB in a bad way, and there isn't much depth there in this draft. Pretty slim pickings in the 2nd for LBs, but there should be some pretty good DTs still there.

My draft reaction:
Peterson - Bliss
Von - Ecstatic
Dareus- Very Happy
Fairley - Concerned & Disappointed
A.J. Green - Optimistic
Gabbert - Don't talk to me or I'll slap you
Cam - Pissed off don't talk to me or I'll punch you in the face

Mine is probably like:

Peterson - Bliss
Von - Ecstatic
Dareus- Very Happy
Fairley - Happy
A.J. Green - Happy
Gabbert - Don't talk to me or I'll slap you
Cam - I'm going to get arrested, make an epic meltdown post and register at extremeskins.com

Elway also hinted a few weeks ago that they didn't know what to do with Miller until 3rd down. I think it's Peterson!

Broncos VP of Player Personnel John Elway acknowledged Wednesday that the "tricky part" about assessing Von Miller's fit into Denver's defense is how he'd impact the game on first and second down.

The Broncos are implementing a 4-3 defense, and Miller would be one of the tiniest 4-3 ends in football at 6'3/246, give or take five pounds. He'd likely struggle in run defense as an early-down end. Miller's scheme fit in Denver isn't ideal, one of the main reasons he's probably not going to end up there. All signs continue to point to Marcell Dareus at No. 2.

I've gone back and forth on Miller. We are pulling so much talent from the LB corp to the front line that it's critical to put new talent in there. The problem is that where we suck defensibly isn't at passing yards, it's at rushing yards.

I love Peterson. I shiver in fear from his wonderlic.

I like Marcell.

But Miller's a great choice, if we can make him worth. And it's worth remembering that our new defensive coordinator is a believer in zone blitzes and the occasional 3-3-5.

Anything is better then drafting a QB.

That about describes my reaction... My draft party is going to end early if we pick Cam.

if Doom returns healthy, and we draft Miller our pass rush would be sick...

i havent followed as closely as i used to...is it impossible for us to run a 3-4 scheme this year?...

i know 4-3 is supposedly in the cards but is it THAT cemented in stone?

I'm pretty convinced that Denver is going to be running a lot of different fronts

I'm beginning to see this more and more as the correct pick. While Miller may be a tad undersized, he has more than enough speed and power to make up for it. Additionally he seems the most responsible and most cerebral player of the top 4. Dareus seems like the best overall fit but doesn't seem all that overly special at first glance... I hope if we draft him, he proves me wrong.

Peterson would be my next favorite pick as he would actually see throws his direction with Champ on the field, plus both Peterson and Miller play better to this drafts strengths by allowing us to take a great DT (hopefully Paea or Austin) at 2a.

I still am hoping for the optimal scenario of us trading down with Arizona and taking whoever of our top 4 is still available meanwhile picking up additional picks.

If he makes the same kind of impact as Matthews did in Green Bay, I'm ALL for this.
