Shanahan Press Conference: Day 2
It's on the main page. www.denverbroncos.com
Some highlights are:
Someone asked about DT, he said we have a lot of bodies there, but we could add some guys in free agency and he expects we can bring some undrafted rookies in too.
Brandon Marshall (I guess I can eat my crow) can play WR, H-Back, TE -- Shanahan loves his flexibility and things he can be big for the offense.
Denver had no plans of taking a back, unless it was Maroney. Had they not went after Cutler, he would have been the guy at #15. Thought the world of him and thought he'd be excellent because he played in a system very similar to ours.
Hixon has a broken bone in his leg and won't be ready until June. (That sucks.)
They liked Kuper and Eslinger both with our 5th and felt very fortunate to get him.
Shanahan likes Dumervil a lot, feels he can rush the passer and that even though he's short, he has long arms, which help him as a pass-rusher. He even thinks he can play inside or outside, (I think he even mentioned nose, but that's surprising) so versatility is key.
I believe he also stated Javon would be here in a week.

Just heard the press conference. I knew they were really high on Maroney.
I cant wait to see what Walker has to say.
