After yesterdays combine, i think DEN will go either with Trufant or Rhodes depending on how the 1st round plays out, and if they are gone, then theres a good chance Te'o is there, and they will take him. Minter is a beast too.

I think this draft is relatively deep at LBer so I can see Denver taking another position in the first and then trying to get a ILB/MLB in the second. I'd prefer the Broncos take a guy like Bostic in the 2nd round as apposed to Te'o in the first, especially when they can get a good CB in the first.

Bostic might turn out to be a very good pro. He has pluses and minuses like all of this year's ILB crop.

From watching a few Florida games in 2012 (which had a really good defense this year), it's sometimes hard to tell chicken and egg. Do other players help him look better? Does he help others look better? One thing i'll say is that if you watched any Florida games, you definitely noticed him being a big part of their game. He makes plays and hits hard. As a matter of fact, i'll say that he sometimes plays "too mean" and really tries to drill people (which sometiomes leads to bad form or missed tackles). I thought I remember him making some stupid mistakes like punching people and drawing personal fouls at one time or another. Has a bad-ass attitude.

Bostic is not a prospect I like. He missed many tackles that Evans and Elam had to clean up. He's a liability in coverage despite his "fast" 40 time. Conceptually he doesn't grasp the game like you want in a starting MLB. Just not a fan..

DeCastro? That was unattributed speculation. Elway not's gonna say who he liked at any time except the guy he picks. He played in the League for 17 years, been there, done that. He's not gonna give anything to the media, just bland BS kind of stuff, just enough to keep them interested, a tidbit here and there. He's smart, knows how to play the media game.

Here's my dream draft as of right now: Broncos take Trufant at #28, and DT with the #58, then a WR with 3rd round pick and Bostic or Alonso with the 4th round pick.

I'd be all giddy. It would be like Christmas in April. Oh, and pick up a RB in the 5th.

I don't think any of those CBs will be at 28. Closer the draft get the higher Rhodes and trufant go. I wouldn't be surprised if they are picked in the teens low 20s

yep, hence my dream. I've seen one mock that has Trufant going to the Broncos. I've seen another mock that has Lacey going to the Broncos. Trufant really helped himself with his 40 time. The Broncos could always go with the best DT or interior olineman available, or maybe with the best WR or safety available. There just seems to be some decent options for the Broncos in areas of need, that is, ILB, DT, WR, maybe CB, and Oline.

I'm excited about this draft. It definitely sucks for teams who need a QB but it's deep in some other positions like DT. I'd have no problem if the Broncos took defense with their first 4 picks.

D.J. Williams is done as a Bronco. Nate Irving is the current plan to man the Mike.

Articles that continuously use "L.O.L." in it are very hard to read or take seriously.

In my opinion, coming out of college, Irving was as good a prospect as any MLB in this draft. If the Broncos believe the guy can get the job done for us I have no reason to doubt them.

Not trying to be a wiseguy but it was all clear to me. DJ is gone (will probably be cut). They're floating the idea that Irving is the guy to beat for the job. Pretty straightforward stuff.

I really liked Irving come out of NC State
The only concern was whether he could hold up long term given he was the bionic man

I would not be totally surprised if Irving actually is being looked at as the de facto starter
With guys like Tony Carter and Chris Harris coming out of nowhere I think this staff feels like they can develop guys into their roles

But given that their last solution for MLB was Joke Mays, they cant just be given the benefit of the doubt

Yep, the unfortunate thing to me is these guys have a lot of solid knowledge but IMO they get in their own way by trying to be cute and just flat out obsessing over certain things.

I am not a Tebow fanboy by a long shot, but man they still carry on about that. The whole "Jets" thing is just idiotic.

I'm curious what you disagree with? Also curious why you can't just read around/ignore the parts that so offend you?

No one is going to trade for DJ, not with that salary, and his off the field issues. He's a talented WLB but expensive. I dunna, but maybe a team like the NYG think about bringing him in and give up a 7th round pick for him? The Broncos eat part of the contract and the giants only have to shell out $4m or so, but they get a guy who can step in and contribute immediately?

Agree D.J. has no trade value, but I'm thinking he will draw interest from multiple teams.

My guess is he goes home, the Raiders. They suit him in all aspects of where he's been and where he is now.

Denver played a 4-2-5 defense 65% of the snaps last year. I don't see that changing this year so I don't expect a MLBer to be selected because those 3 down linebackers like SF has are few and far between

Oline has to be the highest priority to keep Manning here as long as possible as well as S to cover those TEs and CB

When you understand that Miller counts as part of the 4 and not the 2, you'll know why a 3 down MLB is paramount for Denver.

PS. Every defense in the league spends 60%+ in the nickel.

It is amazing how this easy to understand football fact evades 90% of the forum. Thank you Rev.
