Default NO Defensive Tackle in Round 1 !

**** just got real!

http://broncotalk.net/2012/04/34536/...to-draft-a-dt/


We dont feel as bad about our tackles as everybody else does, said Elway. I think that we feel OK there and [DT] Ty Warren will be back coming off an injury and [DT Kevin] Vickerson is coming back and then we have some young guys in there where we feel like well be OK. Its not nearly the need in our minds that people think it is.

That could very well be a smoke screen. But bear in mind, we still have the two players slated to start last year in camp before their injuries.

I just looked up Kevin Vickerson's profile on nfl.com...

He attended Martin Luther Kind High School... in Detroit.

i see pitchforks and torches in Elway's future, first ignoring DT last season, then trading Tebow and now potentially ignoring DT again this season.

i'm a big believer in draft value but you can't honestly believe that there aren't some DT's that are worth it in round 1 or 2. gonna be tough to convince the fans that DT isn't a need when the main issue is that you won't draft them and haven't in the past 10-15 years worth anything.

I feel a RB you can get at #25 will make a bigger impact than a #25 DT.

The best teams in the NFL had great offenses and suspect defenses. The fact is you have to outrscore teams. If Denver could get draft the second best RB in the draft at #25 how can they turn that down? New England, GB, New Orleans all had great offenses and poor defenses. Hell, the Giants most of the time did not even play 2 DTs in the game opting to play 3 or 4 DEs instead.

I will not complain if the Broncos draft a DT #1 but I won't complain if they get a RB either and I would be happier with a RB.

I'm no draft expert, but the little I've gotten to look this year, I don't think that there is much value at DT at the bottom of round 1. Seems like we can get similar caliber at the end of round 1 as we can at the end of round 2.

If we draft an impact player, that's all I care about, just so long it's not a freakin' running back.

Thanks for reminding me. I'm blocking ESPN and NFL Network too until Thursday. It's just too much.

I'm starting to hope that one certain player slips to us because he would be a tremendous asset to the defense. I know many mocks have him going higher, but my new top pick that I hope falls?

Mark Barron, SS.

If Dallas passes on him, we have a shot, and I certainly think he fills a need, as well as getting lucky with BPA. We got torched by poor safety play vs the Pats, more than anything they did to us in the middle of the line (d-tackle). We need top notch talent in the defensive backfield, and Barron fits the bill. We can still pick up a DT like Thompson in the second round. I'm crossing my fingers that the Cowboys pass, and Barron slides to 25.

Guys, just got off the phone, they are in love with Kirkpatrick, will try to trade up to get him if he is on the board in the early 20's, worried about detroit at 23.

They really love this guy.......think he starts right away, replaces bailey in the future. Then I'm told its RB/DT/LB based on value.

my source has worked at the valley of the doves for a long time. He HAS been wrong, in 2007 he swore it was Ted Ginn Jr... so take it for what its worth

It probably would have been if he wasn't taken, what, ninth? What a ****ty draft that was.

Elway, in his conference today, did say that they value character, but they also understand kids make mistakes.

I'd love Kirkpatrick.

Too slow for my tastes, battle tested though, injury prone big time, but picking at 25 they are all gonna have warts!

Even if he gets past the Cowboys, I can't see him getting past the Lions.

I know they want a CB, just don't know which one. Klis seems to think the top players on their board who they feel may be there at 25 are Brockers and Kirkpatrick.
