Default My Final Bronco Mock Draft

This is just my 2nd one, first since the Cutler trade:


1a. BJ Raji NT Boston College 6'2, 334lbs
-I think he drops here, teams ahead seem to need pass rushers more than a NT if looking for DL help

1b. E. Hood DE Missouri 6'3, 300lbs
-Could take Jackson here if still here, but I think Hood has a better motor

2. L. Sidbury OLB/DE Richmond 6'3, 265lbs
-Great speed off the edge, runs a 4.6, I think can play OLB in a 3-4

3a. J. Brinkley ILB S. Carolina 6'2, 250lbs
- Big and strong, more agile than given credit for

3b. S. McGee QB Texas A&M 6'3, 225LBS
- Raw, great size, mobile

4. L. Webb CB/KR/PR Nicholls St. 5'10, 180lbs
- great speed, return guy, can make plays in coverage

5. CJ Spillman S Marshall 6'0, 200lbs
- stock going up, showing nice speed

6. I. Johnson RB Boise St. 5'11, 215LBS
- I just like this guy, has more speed than thought

7a. V. Butler OLB Oregon St. 6'2, 250lbs
- making transition to OLB, showed nice pass rush skills in college

7b. R. Harris DE Oregon 6'4, 300lbs
- nice size for the position

One of the fifth rounds went to Chitown.

After the third round, I have no clue.

Get Hood tound 2. 1b needs to be a LB; Cushing or Mathews or somebody.

Round 2 cpould be Simtim or somebody.

Some of these guys will be JAGs. Trick is to know which ones and aviod them.....

Otherwise, good effort.

Opps, thanks. Fixed it. Sign WR Edison as a free agent, HA!

I think the Pats will go after Hood though, who pick twice before the Broncos pick in the 2nd round.

I love the 2nd and 3rd round picks. I don't know about Hood in the first.

Rey at 12 is a reach and a waste. Just my opinion though, he is a hitter but plays out of control something Nolan isn't fond of. Of course maybe they see an opportunity to refine him. I would much rather have Raji than Rey though.

The Broncos need to grab at least 1 OLB that can rush the QB or their 3-4 won't be very effective. Even if Dumervil works out at one spot, you need another guy on the other side who can rush the QB.

I totally get your concerns with Rey, but he's young and can definitely still be refined. Something you can't teach is his explosiveness and attitude. Here in LA I pretty much watched all USC's games. A man among boys.

Wasn't Jarrett Johnson their Ravens other OLB? I wouldnt call him a pass rushing terror (not that i disagree with drafting one.) I'd still prefer to get a bunch of run stoppers first, that's why i like your Raji and Hood picks. That's also why I'd like Rey

Rey Rey would bring a swagger this defense hasn't had since Wilson was forced to retire.

They said the same about Ray Lewis when he was drafted by the way. This team could use a little Rey.

That isn't how Nolan typically runs his 3-4, that is how the Cowboys and Chargers run theirs, which is practically a 5-2.

Also, Evander Hood is a very good prospect, but not a great fit for the 5-tech. Jackson and Gilbert are both better fits, Hood should go somewhere that wants him as a 4-3 UT.

That wasn't what they said about Lewis. He dropped because folk were concerned about his size and ability to handle the punishment in pros.

They said he wasnt a 3-down backer. At least some def did. Plus, I don't csre if Mauluga doesnt play when we go nickel. I'm sick and tired of teams gashing us in the run game and he'd go a long way to stopping it. We have some LB's that can cover down field, we dont have ones that are forces in the middle when it comes to stopping the run. Enter Rey

Hood is way too big of a reach IMO, and not that great of a DE in our system.
Also, don't like taking McGee in the 3rd. Waste of a pick IMO.

Mock drafts to me seem unrealistic unless you show the picks of all the teams. How about someone does a round one mock that goes through each pick and shows why you think the players Broncos draft will be there.

Hood is a big boy though and would for sure hold the edge in a 3-4. Big physical player. He will most likely be gone by if not end of first, by first 5 picks of second round.

Gilbert from San Jose may give you same skill set in a less motivated body, but could be had for a 3rd rounder maybe.

For sure Broncos need some bigger Dends to keep olineman off our smaller linebackers.

I had read somewhere the Broncos like Raji, Jackson, and Hood. Jackson may be gone by #18 is why I went with Hood. The knock on Gilbert is he doesn't always play tough and DL in a 3-4 have to play tough since they get double-teamed so much, so I'm not sure he's that great a fit.

Hood figures to be gone no later than late 1st, early 2nd, so if want him, have to get him earlier than that.

I'm not a big fan of McGee, but the Broncos will draft a QB at some point in this draft since only have 2 in camp and after McGee, the pickings really become slim as for QB;s in this draft. It's not a deep crop to say the least.

I am not sold on Sidbury in the 2nd, in fact I am not even sold on OLB in the 2nd. I like your 1st round, we need to get bigger and badder on the front line.

In the 2nd I would love a S or CB however, we need speed and playmaking in the secondary and I hope we can add it in the 2nd, Rashad Johnson or someone similar.

I like Brinkley in the 3rd, I would probably go OC/OG in the 3rd instead of QB.

After the 3rd round, a speed guy (check), RB (check), QB and prospects at LB or DL.
