Default Cecil Lammey tweeting he's hearing Broncos may go RB Round 1, DT Round 2

Quote:
Cecil Lammey ‏ @cecillammey file this under #dontbesurprised if #broncos take RB in first-round, Lamar Miller may be tops on their list #nfldraft
Quote:
Cecil Lammey ‏ @cecillammey sounds like if he can stay healthy Knowshon Moreno will make #broncos roster, they see him as good 3rd down RB, only making $850k this yr
Quote:
Cecil Lammey ‏ @cecillammey the #broncos know Willis McGahee will need to be replaced eventually, 1st rd RB could groom behind him in '12 take over as lead in '13
Quote:
Cecil Lammey ‏ @cecillammey personally I think DT class is top heavy and a big need for rd1, #broncos may feel there's value to be had in 2nd rd #nfldraft
Quote:
Cecil Lammey ‏ @cecillammey @salentoq just telling you what I've heard, and remember Foxy drafted JStew in rd1 when he already had DWill w #panthers
Quote:
Cecil Lammey ‏ @cecillammey @RumfordJohnny McGahee not a fit for stretch play, Moreno not full time RB, they are looking for RB1 may go 1st round to do it
Quote:
Cecil Lammey ‏ @cecillammey @wusnapper they seem to have an eye on value DTs in 2nd or 3rd round, I think 1st round is where you take a DT but they may not
Quote:
Cecil Lammey ‏ @cecillammey @tawheed88 it sounds like they prefer Miller over Martin or Wilson, bigger gamebreaker than Martin, more instinctive than Wilson
Quote:
Cecil Lammey ‏ @cecillammey @Skirson88 I think Kirkpatrick is the exception to RB/DT move in 1st, if he's there he's the pick
Sounds like he's hearing Lamar Miller is our target at #25 unless Kirkpatrick falls to us. Broncos seem to think there is better value at DT in round 2. Since Cox and Brockers will almost certainly be gone at #25, I tend to agree with them. Lamar Miller is a superior prospect than Still and Worthy. I have been hoping we would get him for a long time now. He is a dynamic gamebreaker back and we definitely need that. He fits our team better than Martin and Wilson. He's the best with Peyton Manning the stretch play and he's also the best fit for zone blocking as his biggest strength is running to a open space with his elite speed, rather than running to certain hole with power. Color me pleased. Long Live Clinton Portis.

Reach. He's fast but he's also soft and doesn't give you much between the tackles. He needed another year in college.

There is no chance....none, that Denver drafts a RB at 25.

A 1st round RB needs to be groomed? Ridiculous talk. Cecil is failing on this one.

Fearless prediction -- not only will we NOT take Lamar Miller in the 1st, he'll be available at our pick in the 2nd. The fact that you're hearing this is probably a smokescreen from the team, hoping someone panics and takes Miller earlier than they should, and pushing down our real target to us in either the 1st or the 2nd....

Mark it down, and bump this post if I'm wrong....

FYP

If he makes the pro bowl at any point in his career, I'll definitely dig this thread up and give you your due.

I just don't see it with Miller -- one year starter, injury history... meh. He's 6th on my board this year. If the Broncos took him in the 3rd, I'd be intrigued because of his upside, but he's no Clinton Portis.

I watched every Canes game this year and this guy really reminds me of backs that are pro-bowl level players: Darren McFadden and LeSean McCoy. But his best comparison is Clinton Portis. If anyone can appreciate that kind of talent it should be Broncos fans. If another poster calls him Tatum Bell I'm gonna have to slap somebody.

Wow! I guess as long as we grab a DT in the first two rounds I'm OK. I thought the broncos were going to go DT 1st then RB in the second anyways. But I'm surprised the broncos have been pretty quiet about the draft this year. Normally, we hear something about what they are looking at by now!

i hate that tweet of groom a back behind McGahee to take over in 2013.

RB is the only position on the offense where guys don't really need to be groomed to eventually take over. if you take a RB you expect him to contribute from day 1. and if we are going to go after a RB we have to pay really well, we might as well trade for Stewart with a 2nd or 3rd round pick and get a for sure player. outside of Richardson in the 1st, the rest of the backs in this class are 2nd rate, so i think it would be a huge waste to draft a RB in the 1st. Martin in the 2nd, Turbin in the 3rd and i have no problem, but beyond Richardson none of the backs are 1st round worthy.

Well, in this video he's the anti-Moreno. Dude gets the ball and immediately heads upfield. Moreno still hasn't figured that out

Just like there was no chance the broncos would -

Win division

Make playoffs

Win playoff game

Sign Peyton Manning

Trade Tim Tebow

I think this team is definitely one you can't say that about....

Let's hope they do not waste a top pick on a RB as They are a dime a dozen in the ZBS.

I'm guessing he has not got the memo that we are paying manning, 2 TEs a new WR close to 30 million this coming year. Not to mention DT, Decker and MaGahee.

Time to build the defense we have so lacked for the last 20 years.

Wouldn't be mad if we got a RB in the first round

Doug Martin looks like Ray Rice on film so I would love that.

Lamar Miller is a burner so I would be okay with that.

David Wilson is also a burner and I love his toughness the heart he shows on the field so I would also be cool with this.

DT I want is Brandon Thompson I think hes severely underrated should be a first round pick but slides because theres more hype around Cox, Poe, Brockers, and even Still. Thompson is 2nd best DT in this draft after Cox.

This is honestly the best RB class since 2008 IMO I think Martin, Miller, Richardson, and Wilson should all be first round picks, but based on people's opinion about the RB position they wont be but all 4 are worthy of being selected after pick 15 in the first round.

I'm hearing things too (the voices in my head). Expect the Broncos to trade back 5-8 spots, still pick up a top DT, then go BPA the rest of the way.

I'm also hearing (from history itself) that taking a developmental QB outside the first round is flushing the pick down the toilet.
