Default Rey Rey runs a 4.83 and pulls up lame

Not impressed. Curry ran a 4.54, Clay Matthews runs a 4.59 and Cushing runs a 4.64. Trade down and take one of the other two USC LB's.

we will see what it is. Still very high on him. He brings lots of attitude to the game. Sucks for him.

I'd rather trade up and get Curry.

looked like a calf/foot injury. Seemed to finish it fine though. I honestly hate 40 times, they are a joke. Have zero bearing on the LB position imo. Much rather look at the shuffle times

Clay Matthews is on fire, he is flying up boards right now, but I would rather have Sintim, he cranked out a really good workout and he is a real 3-4 guy.

I agree with this, though i guess it suggests a lack of ability to cover downfield. I dunno, at USC he seemed to be able to move quickly

But not cover down field. This is just one more thing that says "two down linebacker" to people.

hopefully were getting enough pressure on the QB so he doesn't have to run with a RB 40 yds down field. If were not it's going to be a long year

You say this like he's already a Bronco. Maybe we don't even draft him. I wouldn't mind ignoring him entirely.

What would it cost? A 2nd rounder would get us into the top 5. The only big obstacle would be finding a team with the chance to select Curry who wants to move back (not hard) and who is willing to accept that the days of the trading up tax being long gone (more difficult).

Its worth it to add a franchise cornerstone like Curry at a huge need position, versus a "maybe" prospect like Maualuga, Raji, etc..

Maybe, just MAYBE a team like say.......SEATTLE would move back with DEN.
Let me make a phone call to the SEA war room.

We've already got a 2-down ILB in Larsen (at least IMO). If we go ILB at #12 I want A cornerstone guy to build around. A leader, heart-and-soul type of guy who can play 3-downs and is a smart, versatile football player who can tackle and cover.

Rey looked like crap.

If he doesn't run better on his pro day, I'm with Kaylore .. ignore him.

It would take more than that. The draft value of Cleveland's #5 pick (this assuming Curry is still available) is 1700, the #12 pick is 1200 and the #48 pick is 420 so we're still short. It's possible Cleveland could go for that, but I'd imagine they'd want something more than that considering a guy like Curry could cause another team than Denver to be interested in a move-up.

Rey pulled his hammy after 2 yards and finished hopping on one leg. His real 40 time is 3.82
