Please. Harris is every bit as fast as most starting CBs.

Harris didn't get invited to the combine because he went to a nowhere school and didn't set the world on fire while there, instead he looked like a solid journeyman. He then posted damn good numbers for any CB at his pro day.

Go ask Sam Shields, starting CB (when healthy) for the Green Bay Packers how being at the combine is based on raw athletic talent. He only ran a 4.30 flat at the Miami pro day and didn't even get invited to the combine. I mean, major D-1A school, all 40 time, still no combine invite. Totally proves that he's just not fast enough for CB.

Harris is fast. Not as fast as Carter but he is faster than Porter, I believe.

So maybe we didn't need to draft Peterson over Miller as badly after all.

Peterson would have prevented the need for Porter in the short term and given us a legitimate #1 CB long term to replace Bailey. He would have been a very legitimate pick.

considering the state of our DL i don't think it would have mattered if we did draft him. he's a play maker but even he couldn't cover for 10 secs that the QB would have to scramble around without Von added to Doom.


i wanted Peterson or Miller badly in the draft(that's a lie, i wanted the Broncos to find a way to get both)

Yeah. I tweeted Harris last night and asked him if he ever thought they would move him to safety and he said "I know I can play it easy".

Guys, Jim Leonhard is a great safety and now that he's fit and seeing defensive snaps, it's starting to show. Its no harm having great depth at CB given the amount of good teams that can effectively run 5 wide. We'll be thankful we have Harris and Carter as nickel and dime cbs against the saints.

I'd love to see Harris move to safety. I think it could be a great move.

(after a glorious 10+ year career as a CB)

I'm interested to see if you actually have any train of thought behind this or are just randomly making statements.

Better yet, Decker replaces Adams, Quentin Carter replaces Woodyard at LB because he can cover, Champ plays WR/PR/KR/ and moves to S so we can get Carter on the field and Von Miller plays LB and FB.

It was a joke, I knew it would get a rise out of you.

I do think we are better off with Miller though. We needed someone to give us the threat of a pass rush and Miller is covering better.

Peterson would have helped in the return game no doubt.
