Default Perfect draft for Denver??

Got this from the site. He gave a 7 round Mock and I love his picks for Denver.

2013 NFL Draft: Seven-round mock forecasts every pick, 1 to 254

28. Denver Broncos: Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina. The UNC product is being pegged as a 3-technique defensive tackle due to his ability to get upfield quickly. I like how he works beyond the line of scrimmage, but many of those disruptions started with him lining up as a 0- or 1-technique.

58. Broncos: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama. John Fox always has had a soft spot for bruising backs who tend to win on first contact. Lacy is athletic for a big runner and always looks to pick up the extra yard.

90. Broncos: Alex Okafor, DE, Texas.

125. Broncos: Kevin Reddick, ILB, North Carolina.

161. Broncos: Duke Williams, S, Nevada.

234. Broncos: Tourek Williams, DE, Florida International.

I have seen a lot of Mocks having Denver select Duke Williams, and I think he would be a steal. This would be a terrific draft.

Maybe a little of a miss not selecting a CB, but I think Denver is OK there. Boldin, Carter, Champ, Harris, Cromartie seem to all have spots on the roster.

Von Miller

Replace Okafor with the best available CB and this would be a dream scenario.

Yep. That is a dream draft, but there is no way that Lacy falls to us in the 2nd. No way. He might go in the second, but if he does it won't be with the 58th pick!

Sylvester Williams would be okay, but I don't see a big need at DT. Value for Lacy in the late 2nd is good, but there are backs I like better (Jonathan Franklin, Le'Veon Bell). Not a big fan of Okafor, he's got a very ordinary skill set. I like the Duke Williams and Tourek Williams picks.

I've gone back and forth on these prospects, but as of draft day this would be my ideal scenario (assuming no trades):

1st) Arthur Brown, MLB, Kansas State
2nd) DJ Swearinger, S, South Carolina
3rd) Trevardo Williams, DE, UCONN
4th) Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida
5th) Kwame Geathers, DT, Georgia
7th) Jasper Collins, WR, Mount Union

Thanks. Probably not much chance of Swearinger lasting until the late 2nd, and I suspect Williams will go before the late 3rd as well. But that's why it's called "ideal," I guess.

That draft sucks as it is not realistc, and Norris doesn't know our scheme.

We're not going to pick a penetrating 3 tech DT. We two gap with our DTs and our LDE so that we can move Von Miller around while still having gap integrity. We move Wolfe inside on passing downs to play 3 tech. We have no use for a base down 3 tech. So, while Williams isn't a bad player, he's not remotely an option for our scheme. Now, in the 2nd Round, we could look at a two-gapping DT like John Jenkins.

Lacy has zero chance of falling to our late 2nd, let alone our 1st round pick. And Okafor won't make it to our late 3rd round selection, he probably goes in the late 2nd. If he had Lacy in Round 1 and Okafor in Round 2, I'm buying that.

I'm fine with Reddick and Duke Williams in the 4th and 5th. Really like Duke Williams. Much better options than Tourek Williams in the late 7th though.
