Brandon Marshall - LB - Broncos

Updating a previous item, Broncos ILB Brandon Marshall is recovering from Lisfranc surgery.

Just as we suspected. Marshall suffered ligament damage and "bones were shifting." It's a painful injury that comes with a lengthy rehab that is prone to setbacks. Marshall hopes to be ready for camp, but that's not a given after he underwent surgery March 11. With Marshall and Danny Trevathan (knee) coming off injuries and Nate Irving signing with the Colts, inside linebacker is a major need for the Broncos. They reportedly like Mississippi State ILB Benardrick McKinney.

Yep, I brought this up a few days ago. We are drafting an ILB early for sure.

We needed at least one ILB draft pick before Marshall's news broke. So it should not change the game plan. Though it may force Elway to actually address it earlier.

DEN needs to find a way to get another 2nd rounder.
OR perryman in the 3rd and Luc in the 5th

Denver needs to be proactive and move up in the second to ensure they can get a quality ILB, because the Top 5 guys probably won't be there at #59.

They have 22 picks, 8 can't be traded (COMP) so 14 at their disposal over the next two seasons. They don't have fourth rounders to trade up in either year, but they have the ability to use some of their extra fifths, perhaps a future third and what not to get what they desire.

Secretly, I am hoping Brock Osweiler is packaged with #59 and a late pick to move up and get a Top 40 selection.

Considering their injury history and the fact that they are both FA's, I have always believed ILB was a Top 3 need. It was last year (before Marshall came out of nowhere) and given what has transpired (more injuries, scheme change, etc.) that need still remains.

And Dysert becomes the backup?

They will probably draft a QB. I doubt Brock gets traded, but I'd do it. If Manning goes down, you might as well suck balls for a QB in 2016.

Who would be worth drafting? The whole premise is that DEN uses its QB and a pick to move up, yet DEN would then be stuck trying to find a QB, later in the draft. There's no late round QB better than Dysert. OK, maybe Bennet, but that a big maybe.
I thought about, and I just don't think DEN can afford to dump Brock unless they were in love with a Grayson or Petty. And that would be the pick anyways. Oz-Petty-Grayson are a wash to me. Oz has the bigger arm.
DEN needs to move up with out giving up Oz. To do it, they would have to give up a future high pick.

I still assertain that Paul D, Denzel P, Bmckinney, S Anthoneeee.......ok im all done rhyming....Will all be gone before our pick in the 2nd rd.

Im with Req, we must trade up to ensure we land one. That is a MAJOR MAJOR need and I do not like the later rd guys adequetly plugging the hole this year.


Ive, looked at Heeney and taken what Med said into account, and he is right, but that still doesnt change the fact that Heeney gets blown up by OL and he cannot disengage from them very well. (granted I only watched 2 games and 1 4min highlight vid).

Still, perryman and Paul bring a hole lot more to the table imo. And with our scheme where the OL will likely be getting to the 2nd level and the LBs will have to sift through the trash we need a LB who wont get blown up.

I don't see the Broncos trading Brock if all they are going to do is turn around and draft another QB. At this point Brock is better than a guy like Mariota and he's one of the top 2 QBs in this draft. I like Hundley but again, is he better than Brock right now? Ultimately Elway and Kubs will have to make that decision.

I think it comes down to whether or not Kubiak believes that Brock is the guy to help lead the team he coaches down the road. I think Kubiak could get a lot out of him, but I have no idea what they really think.

Plenty of quality ILB to take, just going to be interesting when we take one. If the top OL are gone, ILB at 29 would not bother me at all.

Kubiak said they may draft for need. I see a ILBer as a possible 1st round pick.

Center, ILB and TE are all needs with C and ILB being the top 2. The Broncos can absolutely fill those needs in the top 2-3 rounds and not have to give away the farm to do it.

I seriously doubt Kendricks getting past New Orleans in the second or even late first. I would like to get a bigger LB anyways. We already have two smallish MLBs in Marshall and Danny. I would like to get Perryman or Benardrick McKinney with the first or second round pick.

Perryman is a little short to be a Stormtrooper.

Drafting for need sucks, I just hope things fall together for the Broncos and if they have to move around to get their guys they have the ammo.

It's amazing the team has around 4-5 TEs currently on the roster, and it's still a need.



I still stand by my prediction that Ramirez will be starting somewhere on the line come week 1
