I didn't know much about this kid and most of the Orangemane GM's were saying this guy was a huge reach and was a bad pick. I like what I have seen so far out him. He has broke up several passes and he brings the big hits in the secondary.

he reminds me of Ben Smith (CB back in the day) in the way he hits.....

Smith would have been a good CB if his knee held up.

Looks promising.

Raw, but the potential is there. If he can put it together and DRC can start playing like his talent level and get extended then we'll have some big, physical cornerback play for years to come.

He is a little rough around the edges, but he has good speed and ball skills. Hopefully he can develop into a good weapon for us. With Carter out, he will see more PT.

Basically, it's Elway vs. the world on this one.
So far, the score is:

Elway 1
World 0

The kid looks good. Real good.

Anybody else think Boldin has a shot to earn a spot next year? He's done.

Needs to wrap up when he tackles but has a lot of upside

Depends on what the Broncos want to do with DRC, Champ, Harris, etc. -- I think all of them (outside Bailey perhaps) are all having their contracts come up. I could see him being a reserve guy, but he hasn't really proven much. Since he is on the cheap, he might make a good dime back. I believe Carter is an RFA as well. . .

Yeah, he doesn't rely on his tackling skills (weird) as he does on his hits.
I love that he's physical, but needs to learn to wrap 'em up
He puts hits on people and he doesn't expect them to get up. It happened last night, he put a hit on a Raider player (I don't remember who) the guy went down and he stood there looking down on the guy, the guy got up quickly and ran the ball another extra 5-6 yards before getting swarmed into the turf... (4th qtr I think this was)

Yeah, I watched it too. It was Marcel Reece. That hit will work on the smaller receivers but you get a big bodied fullback or running back they'll just keep on trucking

Webster looks really good so far. Has obvious rookie mistake issues but he's showing some nice flashes.

Bolden will be fine. He's just taking a bit to learn his role and with him now being a safety he would out of position on a few plays when they put him back at CB after DRC was gimpy.

Oh it's a lot more than that

Webster,Wolfe,Trevathan,Franklin,Thomas were all really good picks that at the time were vilified for picking those players over another more well thought of one.

Hillman is starting to come around as well so he could be another guy Elway and co were right about.

"“That guy, I've been saying he’s going to be a player. I just think Kayvon’s going to have a long career in this league," said Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard. “He’s going to be one of those guys who is a dominant corner in the future, take my word on that."

Nate Irving is turning out to be a nice 3 rd round pick

It is the ESPN effect aka Top 10 plays. Guys think that it is best to knock them and watch them fall instead of playing as a team guy and just tackle the SOB and stop him right there. A successful hit or tackle is the same result on the field as the ball is spotted where it happens and not where he lands. Therefore, each player should be safe and just wrap the guy up and drive him to the ground.
