I am thinking another Florida State player here, either Christian Jones or Telvin Smith.

Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.

Before any of you ask where the hell did Denver get all the caproom from, we where allowed to restructure 2 contracts down to a minimum base salary in 2014 and I saved a ton doing this with Manning and Clady. Champ also came back on a guaranteed $3m base salary.

Thanks for the help. I'd like to keep this running with advice on my final 4 picks and who I should attempt to trade.

Thanks
EM

What's the point of being super-realistic about everything if you're going to throw something like this into the deal?

I mean it looks like you put a lot of work and thought into it and I like a few of the moves quite a bit, but... seems pretty contradictory to the whole idea.

Eddie mac you are insane with the cap!

IF Manning and Clady do re-sign that would be HUGE!

Also I would love if we let Beadles walk and Frankling push over to G to allow Clark to start at RT. I never thought of that.

As for the pick, sorry idk. Im still in the beginning phase of my research for the draft.

Shanny they allowed every team to do it cos a lot of teams were close to or over the cap. I only did it to make sure I got Decker/DRC back, in the end though I said **** it and signed some decent FA's.

I'm going with Christian Jones cos he can back-up at numerous LB positions.

What a cluster**** of a mock draft game that is. Holy smokes.

With your Free Agent signings, you've essentially changed our defense from a 43 Under to a traditional 43 look. That's going to trivialize Miller to an extent as a pass rusher. LB depth would be nice, but I think you have more glaring needs at Free Safety and CB. We're still not sure what is going on with Moore long term with his leg. And Champ looks about done. Roby was a steal in the late 2nd, but we could still use another.

If you're planning on still using the SAM position as a rush spot, you need a legitimate pass rushing OLB-type to back up Von. McCray hasn't shown anything yet.

So, I probably would have looked hard at FS, Pass Rush OLB/DE hybrid, and another CB before LB depth.

Any players at those positions for the 4th rd that are still on the board

Dion Bailey or Ed Reynolds, maybe Breeland or Gaines at CB, might try and move up for one of those given I dont really need late round picks aside from practice squad players.

I try and stay mum due to our draft game coming up, but I will tell you I have both Bailey and Breeland in the 2nd Round. There are also some other players available I have highly ranked. I'm anticipating excellent Combine for both.

Screw that site. I used to moderate there and they used my graphics and design without giving me any credit.

I'd like to see them bring Caldwell back if they let Decker go. Knows the system, has some rapport with manning. Don't think he'd really be a dropoff from Decker. And of course, he's way cheaper.

Only ever on there during the offseason, plus I love the old GM Mocks, with the free agency, trading (I hardly ever trade Bronco players unless I know they're done) and off course the drafting.

Trading players and stuff drives me bonkers. I used to grade the GM game on Broncomania for years, and I'd go super indepth as "MUG Mayock". Yeah, I'm a nerd. But, taking into account trade values and new players and how that interferes with team needs on top of draft picks was a MASSIVE headache.

I LOVE the draft on this forum so much better, and because of the lack of player trading, I can make it completely quantitative on draft selection values and drafting skill. Still a ton of work to grade, but SOOO much easier, and completely non-subjective. I enjoy the Football Future poll drafts for each team, I find those valuable for getting a generic pulse for each team's needs, but I'm not sure how you could even begin to actually grade the draft game you're in. And grading them makes it SO much better because you can rib on people who sucked and brag about kicking ass.
