This is very deep class for CB, I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't pick one to the 3rd round.

Forget Osweiler.

Garoppolo is rising for sure, but we don't need a QB.

I wish I could believe that, but I think Osweiler sucks.

That said I know we aren't drafting a QB.

Based off of what? How many games has he started? How many games has he not just play closer? Exactly.

I didn't like all the game clips I could find of him coming out of college, and I haven't seen any flashes of greatness in preseason or in his time spelling Manning in real games. What are you basing your optimism off of?

I wonder if he'll have a Snickers in his postgame press conference and say you win some you lose some, again.

Optimism? I didn't say anything about being optimistic. There is nothing to judge, since he hasn't had any real playing time. Clean up is not real playing time and neither is a hand full of preseason games, the play calling is completely different. Don't look at the college tape because we already knew he was going to be a project. The only thing that matters with a project is how he plays today, and none of the armchair GMs will know that because they haven't seen real game footage. You are saying he sucks based off of nothing.

QBs that don't flash in preseason against vanilla coverages don't generally do anything in real games. In fact, QBs who play like Osweiler has played in preseason two years in a row generally get cut unless they were drafted high.

And how many people who have played amazingly in preseason only turn out to be crap when it's time for a real game, broncos had plenty of those. Preseason isn't the end all, be all. He's a project, he needs a few years to develop. That was known from the beginning. I"m not anywhere near ready to call him a bust, until I see him play in a few full regular season games.

With that said, I two would have liked the Broncos to draft a QB this year, instead of two years ago. This would be a perfect year for that. Manning probably got 1, 2, and at most 3 years left in him.

Playing well in preseason games certainly doesn't mean someone will play well in real games, but playing poorly in preseason games tends to indicate someone won't play well in real games. If someone can't walk it seems delusional to think they will be able to run.

Dude is a physical specimen. I wouldn't mind snagging him in say the 3rd or 4th but I think his size will shoot him up the boards to the early to mid 2nd.

The guy I am curious about the most in this draft is Yamin Smallwood.
Good size and skill set for a ILB. I am interested to see how his combine and pro days go.
Also intrested to watch Jeremy Hill from LSU and Martavis Bryant.
Each could be a nice replacement if we lose Moreno or Decker to FA.

Deone Bucannon.

Also like the idea of jean-baptiste. The WR to CB worked out well for Sherman. Although he's smart enough to soak in the transition.

Calvin Pryor is the best safety in this draft and no one will convince me otherwise. I don't anticipate him falling to 31, though.

I guess I'm all alone in thinking Pryor is a Mid 2nd round pick. He's solid, but I'm not convinced he's a great athlete. Will be very interested to see what he can show at the Combine.

I'll admit, I haven't seen much on him but the in the little that I've seen, he's shown pretty good range and athleticism, flashing good ball skills and a knack for the big hit. And he gets right up in the face of the guy after he knocks him silly, talking trash. He would bring some much needed nasty to the defensive back group. I read that he's a former running back, and his balance and coordination shows in his movement and leverage upon impact with other players.

I know he's considered a free safety, but I'd like to see him paired with Moore in a SS role, replacing Adams/nacho. Moore is a good enough last line at Free to keep his job, and Pryor would be the guy who stuffs plays at the line and acts as a physical presence in the box, while still having the range to cover a tight end.

It's crazy how different we view things, this is similar to scouting departments from team to team.

Ha-Ha is the best S in this draft. Pryor is good but the only dude I would draft in the first over a DL or CB is Ha-Ha.

Oh yeah. Looking at what you said, my takes in this thread were nearly identical to yours in Req's mock. I'm not a big fan of bucannon or clinton-dix either. Pryor just has the look of a dominant safety to me. I also like Joyner but his size is a pretty big concern, and he might not be completely necessary with Chris Harris still around.
