Personally I would draft a pair of RBs in this draft IF Lattimore falls to the 4th or 5th round. Lacy and Bell are my favorites in the 2nd round. Ideally, you draft a Mike, DT, or DE in the first, get Bell in the 2nd and then really set the position for years to come with Lattimore in the 5th. Not sure he will fall, but it would give the Broncos the luxury of bringing him along slowly. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a team like the Texans, Seahwaks or Vikings taking Lattimore in the draft for their future guy. Those three teams have the luxury of allowing him to sit and get healthy. Lattimore, if he can recover fully has the skillset to be a very good two way threat. If the Broncos could draft a starter early and Lattimore later, they could have the team prepped for life after Manning... Which I believe will be more of a run oriented team.

I think there is a great chance Denver trades out of the first round.

Unless a great player drops they are moving back.

I think someone will grab him in the 3rd. I mean I think Denver should anyway.

Brian Westbrook type.
He and Hillman are very similar players. Their skillset is the same. I would not mind Gio, (drafted him in the OM Mock) but I think we need something different. My guy is still Le'Veon Bell. He can run hard and catch the ball. If he is there in the second, take him -- but I bet a team like Pittsburgh or NYG take him in the 2nd if he is available.

I think Payton could convince him to get his act together. I would drool every time I watched him run.http://www.steelersdepot.com/2013/03...hael-texas-am/

He's a great athlete, seems to do the hurdle or spin move a lot. He's got good speed but may not have the burst of others?

I like what I see, but wondering if we already have this guy on our roster.

I should add though, he as a really good cut up the running lane.

DRC on a 1 year deal and Bailey getting older means CB will still be a priority. I think our top pick goes there unless the BPA is a DT or DE.

MLB will wait until the second- third round probably. No one really good enough for a #1.

I think one of our top 3 picks goes to CB, but i sincerely doubt they zero in on the position in the first round. It'll be a BPA situation, within reason of course.

Any impact player will do...though i'd stay away from running back...and id prefer that impact guy come on D

This is going to be extraordinarily high praise, but I think he can be just as good of a player as Matt Forte in the NFL. His receiving skills and burst are not as great as him, but he can definitely carry the ball 250 times a year and get another 35-45 catches in an offense like this. He already averaged a good amount of catches a season in college with far less games.

He is hungry and has a desire to get better. He knows what he has to do to get the next level and I am confident he willl. I see some similarities to Knowshon, but I think Bell has superior strength and decisiveness hitting the hole. If Knowshon was ever healthy and could stay healthy, he would be a perfect back for this offense too. Unfortunately, I think this is the last time we will see him with the Broncos.
