Week 5 Mock Snapshot
NFL Draft Showcase, Oct. 11
26 Denver Broncos f/WAS Greg Eslinger C Minnesota
Eslinger is a Tom Nalen clone and a perfect fit in the Broncos' offense.
29 Denver Broncos (4-1) Manny Lawson DE NC State
The Broncos have picked up a few free agents at the end position, but they still haven't gotten the pass rush production they need. Lawson can give them some more speed off the edge.
60 Denver Broncos (4-1) Jay Cutler QB Vanderbilt
A Quarterback for the future is needed here. Could be a tad high for Cutler, but he has good physical ability which Denver can mold for a couple seasons while Jake Plummer holds down the fort.
Footballs Future, Oct. 13
22. Denver(Washington) Daryn Colledge, OT, Boise St.
Colledge should be able to step in right away and be a solid pass protector.
30. Denver Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio St.
They finally land the playmaking WR they have wanted for years.
Consensus Draft, no date
28. Derek Hagan, WR ASU
30. Michael Huff, S, Texas
Draft Ace, Oct. 7
14 Denver Broncos f/Was Marcedes Lewis Tight End UCLA
The Broncos know how having a serious receiving threat at tight end can change the way a defense prepares for you. Lewis has the potential to become an All-Pro tight end, and would help spread out the Broncos offense. Other options for the Broncos would be to add a pass rusher along their defensive line.
17 Denver Broncos Devin Hester Cornerback Miami FL
Depth in the secondary is a big question mark for the Broncos defense. Most people expect a defensive lineman to be brought in here, but thus far their line of former Browns has been solid. Hester is a playmaker, that can make a big difference in the return game as well.

All of the draftniks have had the Broncs taking a TE in the first round for the last 5 years. I have alway thought that was wrong, except I thought they should have snapped up Ben Watson when they had a chance in the second. This year I could change my mind for the simple reason that there are few senior WRs worth a high pick and the Broncs desperately need a third option in the passing game. Lewis appears to be a great talent.
Most of the other guys I see here don't seem to be first round picks right now, but the Broncs always surprise.
Cutler is an interesting one. I doubt many here have seen him and I think the second round is way too high for him. He is extremely smart, has good fundamentals and has adequate physical skills. He is the kind of guy I would think could stic around the league for 10+ years as a premium BU, but I doubt he is ever an above average starter.
