That works for me. Cox in the first, Kheeston in the 4th.

Cox and Thompson would be a nice dream combo.
i wouldn't mind Mike Martin either but i wonder how they would use him, NT or UT?

he's a NT type who will gobble up the running game and give you a bit of pass rush.

I'd love to see Jerel Worthy wearing the bronco orange, he was a beast and a game changer at State.

pretty strong class from top to bottom, at least the Broncos have that going for them going into this draft.

pull-the-trigger.

when this draft is over DT better be a strength on the team and draft analysts complain about how many DT's we drafted.

Do you think Elway and Fox have already decided who they want? If this year's pick comes anywhere close to Von Miller and his quality, and dedication, and production, then we know we have a front office. And if we have a front office, they will build a dynasty for us.......dynasty.

Seems like I heard that last year too. Maybe this is the year they actually take advantage of it.

I'm sure their final grades on prospects will be done in a few weeks. I'm sure they have their guy, but I doubt that guy will be @ 25.

If I'm a betting man I say they go with Worthy. Solid starter, little to no injury history, consistent, gets TFL + sacks and anchored a great run defense (best in NCAA, I believe) and a great pass rush.

I know people saying Fox and Del Rio love big DT but men do change thinking based on situation. I really think they understand, Elway especially that in Denver you need smaller players. We still want to be big, but we want to be athletic and quick, with great conditioning.

I think Broncos will look hard at Reyes if he is there in the first round. And the DE Winn from Boise ST i could see getting a look in the 2nd. Both of those players really strong and can play inside or outside depending on the down.

unless Winn is playing DT for us i don't see it, he's slow as a DE and i don't know if he has the frame to be a 4-3 DT. his teammate McClellin though, he's a nice prospect.

I think he will move around and play both. But when you start talking about 2-3rd round picks most of them have some negatives.

dude runs almost a 5 flat @ 294 lbs, that's a DT in almost any scheme.

I also prefer Reyes over all the higher rated DT's outside of Cox. Winn will be a 3-4 DE or won't make it in the NFL at all IMO. Del Rio inherited both Stroud and Henderson at DT when he became the coach, so hard to say what he really prefers since those guys were good enough not to worry about that spot for years.

I don't get caught up in those number too much. He's super strong. Also at his pro day he was timed as low as 4.82 which for a guy his size is good for the NFL. He's also athletic. He looked like he got into a lot better shape for his pro day, but he didn't have a great senior bowl.

I think he could fall into a rotation in a 4-3 where you can play him at end or DT.

i think he's a DT who can slide down to DE in certain situations but if he's strictly a 4-3 player then he's a DT for sure imo. i don't care too much about 40 times for a DT but for a DE it's kinda crucial to be able to get to the QB. i like to see a 4.7 or lower for DE.

My opinion:

Cox
Brockers
Still
Worthy
Reyes
Poe

We will get one of those guys. However, I think we could take a guy who falls like Kuechly or Kirkpatrick or maybe even Gilmore.

If that happened, then we would use our 2nd on a DT (Thompson, Wynn).

My choices:

1st round: Cox, Worthy, Reyes

2nd round: Kendricks, Martin

I'm sort of thinking Broncos look for guys with big motors, who can stop the run. If they aren't great pass rushers who cares we have Doom and Miller for that. Wynn just seems to play the run really well. Sometimes its not so much speed this, how strong he is, its just being a good football player and he looks like that to me.

Thats why they haven't resigned Marcus Thomas probably. There are so many 300 pound DT in this draft that can do what he does.

I think Broncos plan on either Warren or Vickerson coming back strong. They will try and add a few DT/DE add them to Ayers and Doom and come up with a squad. I do think though while most of us, lots on the board, feel Warren is washed up, the Broncos don't.
