Default Mocking the Draft

31. Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State
Both Paris Lenon and Wesley Woodyard are free agents for the Broncos, and Shazier is a clear upgrade. Shazier is capable of playing outside or inside linebacker in the NFL. He's more physical than his measurables indicate and gets to the ball as fast as any linebacker in the draft this year.

63. Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood
For teams looking to add bigger cornerbacks this offseason, Desir will be a hot commodity. He can get physical with opposing receivers, and help fill one of Denver's biggest needs.

95. Tre Mason, RB, Auburn
Knowshon Moreno is a free agent, and some consider Mason among the best running backs in the draft.

To me, Shazier is a WLB in the NFL. We have enough WLB's and SLB's
I want Mosley or Smallwood at MLB.

Apparently the draft is May now? For real? Looks like I might have to go to Glacier in June instead to camp. GAH.

If we draft a MLB I'd hope for Andrew Jackson

We can get him late in the draft. His stock plummeted this year.
Probably a 4th rounder if he has a good combine and pro day, if not then a 5th-7th.
I want us to draft him as well.

Spoke highly of him last year. It depends what we are looking for from the position. He's a two down player. If we lose Woodyard, who is the other subpackage LB? We could certainly look to sign a coverage LB in free agency.

Jackson would be a downhill enforcer, even though he had a down year. I liked him last year and think he has plenty of physical attributes you need from a MLB. But his hips are stiff...

I think we will take a more complete MLB or we will have to have a subpackage LB to play with Trevethan.

Me personally I want 2 MLB's in the draft.
Smallwood in the 1st or 2nd, Jackson in the later rounds.

I don't see Smallwood falling lower than the 2nd unless his combine is pure crap.

What benefit would that serve us drafting Smallwood and Jackson. I am all for drafting two LBs, but one has to be a coverage LB!

I just want the position upgraded. A legit 1 and 2 at MLB.
If one falters the other can take his place and have it be a big time competition.

I'm open to that idea, but I would prefer to sign a veteran free agent and draft one. Based on our current defense, sub packages are what we do the most often. So if we draft Smallwood or Jackson who are both two down players, who is your subpackage LBer with Trevethan?

My assumption is that we will find a cheap vet LB for the sub package.
It may be that we take a LB in the draft and sign one instead of taking two.
My preference is to get two MLB's in the draft but I doubt they draft two with CB,S,DE and G being a need.

tre mason would be fun, he carried that auburn offense more than people realize I think. I think we've all realized over the years that we need some strength in the middle of the field with a great mlb and a strong and fast strong safety.

I also think missing rahim moore had a huge affect on our defense.

Yeah but you know someone will get cut and that has been the way the team has addressed it in the past.
