Why is it ok to draft an offensive lineman early, and the explanation behind it, it's Franklin may walk. But the same cant be said about Moore, who's way less impactful on the field, it's assumed we will resign and pay him good money?

No thanks.

Everybody is hyping C. J. Mosley at MLB, but the guy is 6-2 , 232. Yes, I know his college accomplishments are impressive, but I really question his production at the NFL level. I really like Yawin Smallwood from Connecticut. He's 6-3 and a very lean 236, meaning he could fairly easily add 10 lbs, and I imagine he would still be available in the 2nd round.

I think Smallwood is better in a 3-4, but he should be there in the third. I got him in the 4th.

Yeah I deleted that, I was playing off of the 40 year old virgin skit, but I didn't want to drop gay bombs and offend anyone or get banned so I deleted.

And my apologies if you were joking, as of late you have been douchey towards me.

They did a mock draft on NFL Network.

Casserly said he expects Den and Sea to move back, but he gave Den, Verrett and Sea, Jernigan.

No there wasn't, DB4L did that. He's referring to a post after that.

But thanks for chiming in.

The Broncos want to play an OLB in the middle. I know many of us don't like it but......Broncos can't afford a thumper non coverage backer because tom brady will just go no huddle on him. Drew Brees will just go no huddle on him. Andrew Luck will just go no huddle on him and on and on, Rivers also.

So Broncos want a MLB who can cover and get deep down the seams to help in coverage vs TE and WR going down/across the middle.

Shazier, Mosley, Van Noy all these non ILB have a real shot of going to denver.

Guys lke Skov not so much. Smallwood I am not very familiar with so I won't comment.

Also most team throw to beat the Broncos. How many teams just run it down our throats? We have a big front 4 and a run stopping SS now. I think a hybrid backer who can run and cover is exactly what we need.

It really looks like Elway & Co have it narrowed down to four guys they want in the first round. One of CJ Mosley, Ryan Shazier, Justin Gilbert, or Kyle Fuller. The evidence is in who they brought in for predraft visits, particularly in April.

The list of predraft visits with the Broncos. http://www.itsalloverfatman.com/bron...draft-meetings

The position breakdown is this:

LB - five (three in April, Mosley, Shazier, Preston Brown).
CB/DB - six (two in April, Fuller and Gilbert).
OL - five (none in April).
WR - five (one in April, Donte Moncrief).
QB - three (two in April, Stephen Morris, Brett Smith. WTF that is about I don't know).
DL - two (one in April, Scott Crichton).
RB - one (none in April).

Note that the only April visits are Mosley, Shazier, Justin Gilbert, Kyle Fuller, Scott Crichton (DE), Preston Brown (LB), Donte Moncrief (WR), Stephen Morris (QB), Brett Smith (QB). Where there's smoke, there's fire (note also that Jason Verrett doesn't appear on the list of visits).

So, post-FA, the focus is ILB and CB. And versatile QB for some reason, then one DE Scott Crichton, one WR Donte Moncrief.

You have to figure Chris Harris is a top slot CB, only a good outside CB, and coming off of an ACL to open the 2014 season. Kayvon Webster doesn't have top skills as an outside CB, doesn't get his head turned around to track the ball in the air, he's one of those guys that just throws his arms up and hopes the ball will bang into one of them or his helmet. Kayvon is a solid tackler, though, good in run support, good depth.

There's an opening for an outside CB to pair with Talib, and an opening at ILB to combo with Trevathan and Von. It looks like Elway & Co want to grab one of Mosley, Shazier, Gilbert or Fuller in the first round. They'll have to trade up, but outside CB and ILB are the impact positions on a solid roster where a rookie could make a difference in another Lombardi run.

Elway & Co have every roster spot covered with a plan of some sort that is pretty good except for the guy opposite of Talib and MLB. Maybe WR is a little thin . . . .

And KR/PR seems to be a question mark. Sure would be nice to have a top return guy. Andre Caldwell as the KR guy and Emmanuel Sanders as the PR guy doesn't sound too good. They're supposed to be two of the top four WR's. Bubba hasn't proved out as a KR in his younger years, so he won't prove out now he's aging. Returner is a hole that has to be addressed.
