Trevardo Williams, DE, Connecticut

In no particular order these are guys left that I think have a lot of potential. There are quite a few others as well, this draft is super deep.
I like this list. I would add Barkley, Nassib to it also.

With our 4th pick, I would take either Reddick or Nico Johnson. I like both guys and they would provide instant competition at MLB.

With our 5th pick, I would take the best guard available and with our 6th pick I would take bpa.

Also like Okafor, Patton, Franklin, LATTIMORE, and Jesse Williams. Not need positions but guys that could add quality depth.

I agree that they may take Barkley if he is still there in the 5th. He could be a very solid backup with starter potential and would be a solid choice as almost NFL ready. But we still need the edge rusher and ilb, and safety as well as OL and WR depth. Freeney and Dansby are still out there as well as some June 1 cuts and camp cuts. Overall the team has addressed almost all of their needs and should be better in almost every aspect. It seems as if Fox Elway and Del Rio really have a Plan A and are sticking to it.
They have had to go to plan b during this draft. I think that their first choice in every round so far has been taken one or two picks before theirs but they had solid 2nd and 3rd picks in mind.

It won't happen, but I wouldn't be opposed to drafting Tyler Bray, QB, Tennessee if he was somehow still sitting on the board at the end of the 5th round.

Denver needs a 3rd QB and I'm never opposed to drafting a good QB prospect to develop.

Tyler Bray could learn a lot watching fellow Vol Peyton Manning for a few seasons.

We'd be pretty well set at QB in a few seasons with Brock Osweiler and Tyler Bray.

I'm sure there is a bust factor with Tyler Bray....but you really can't consider someone a bust if you're rolling the dice at the end of the 5th round.

Same goes for Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas if he is still on the board at the end of Round 5.

Brian Schwenke or Barrett Jones. Either could start this season and improve our interior Oline.

Honestly, I'd take Barkley if he falls to us and let him and Osweiller fight it out in 3 years. That'd be great value in round 4. Also love Lattimore.

I like Matt Barkley a lot....but I don't want to use our 4th round pick on a QB, but wouldn't be opposed to Bray or Wilson at the end of the 5th round if they are still on the board.

Also, I think it's clear now that we're serious about Nate Irving or Steven Johnson as our MLB. They don't actually have nearly as much to do on our defense as Von or Woodyard, so who knows? It could work out.

All I want the Broncos to do is not blow their picks. After giving it some long thought, Montee Ball could be a great player for this team. He is a great compliment to Hillman. Wisconsin backs never pan out. He is an average athlete. I think scheme helped him a lot.

Kayvon Webster in the third round is absolutely unforgivable. The press conference on him demonstrates how "needy" we were with a corner, and we didn't have the balls to move up and get one who was actually good. Should have moved up to get Xavier Rhodes. We blew that one.

Sylvester Williams pick: A

Montee Ball pick: B

Kayvon Webster pick: F-

There are plenty of good players still left.

WR: Patton, Rogers, King, Harper, Mellette
DL: Williams, Okafor, Jenkins, Smith
LB: Thomas, Greene, Hodges, Porter, Reddick
CB: Porter, Webb
S: Thomas (x2), Jefferson, Williams

If we can get one of those guys in the fourth, I'll be happy. I doubt it. I bet we sit on our hands like worthless losers and let all the good guys come off the board. There are others too, especially backs like Randle, Franklin, Lattimore, etc. but obviously we won't be going there.

It is just sad.

still playing first-pick.com. here's another model (with their grades):

Round 1 Pick 28: Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina (A)
Round 2 Pick 26: Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin (A)
Round 3 Pick 28: Kayvon Webster, CB, South Florida (D-)
Round 4 Pick 28: Chase Thomas, OLB, Stanford (A)
Round 5 Pick 28: Zac Dysert, QB, Miami (Ohio) (A)
Round 7 Pick 28: Earl Wolff, SS, North Carolina State (A-)

I want someone to compete and develop alongside Osweiler for a few years....I don't want him to assume the position will be handed to him in a few years when Peyton Manning retires.

A prospect with some upside and talent like Tyler Bray or Tyler Wilson in the 5th round would be ideal.

Like I said, I like Matt Barkley, but someone will snag him up early in Round 4 and I don't want to use our 4th round pick on a QB.

Earl Wolff has fallen off some boards due to a lousy showing at the interviews, especially on the chalk boards.

I'd say BPA among a certain range - DE, QB, RB, OL, ILB, DB.

Quite a few of you were hollering for Q. Smith, looks like we got him. I don't know anything about him, but pat yourselves (and Elway &Co.?) on the back
