Default A couple of mock drafts.

If this needs to be in the Draft Forum feel free to move it. I was bored this morning and looked at a few sites.

www.draftsite.com has us taking Carlos Dunlap DE Florida, Brandon Spikes ILB Florida, Ed Dickenson TE Oregon , Demaryius Thomas WR GA Tech, Dekoda Watson OLB Florida State (6th),John Skelton QB Fordham(7th), Nick Polk S Indiana(7th).

www.newnfldraft.com has us going McLain, Tony Pike QB Cin, Nate Allen S S.Florida, D'Anthony Smith DT LSU Tech, Mike Neal DE/DT Purdue.

www.walterfootball.com has got Dez Bryant, Corey Wootton, DE/DT Northwestern, Sean Canfield QB Oregon State, Jamar Chaney ILB Mississippi State.

www.draftcountdown.com: Dez Bryant, no other rounds yet.

www.cdsdraft.com: McClain, Dan Williams, Kristofer Odowd C USC.

I would be pretty happy with the first list. Some pretty solid players there. I don't know if you guys have noticed during the last few days on NFLN they have been talking about Denver being a good situation for Tebow..An offensive minded HC who pretty much runs the show that could have a solid plan for him. I can't say that the scenario wouldn't be fun to watch, but we have other holes that need to be filled first IMO.

Interesting, but somewhat useless since trades and FA might/will change all that. Still......

If the defensive line isn't addressed this draft like it should've been last year, it never will be.

Tim Tebow better not show up in Denver unless it's on a late, late round flyer.

Can't do a mock draft for Denver until the Marshall situation is cleared up .........it's pointless ............

All mocks are pointless. They are just another piece of the puzzle along with the Senior Bowl and the player rankings. Discussion generators nothing more.

I'd love the first two rounds of that last draft. McClain and Dan Williams would be two massive additions for this front seven. A legit do everything ILB to pair with DJ and a nose who can play all three downs.

Mock drafts are pointless until after the combine.

JK, just wanted to keep the theme of the thread going.

I have not followed college much this year and need to get caught up on who is who for this draft. Mock drafts are good places to start figuring out who to look at.

i am in a quandary here. the defense last season is basically why we went 8-8 and the front 7 did begin to get gashed by around week 10, so definitely front 7 is a big need for us, but then i look at the offense. if our interior line was better, i think we would have probably been putting up at least 7 more points per game.

with those thoughts in mind i can't decide if we should go after OL or front 7 in the 1st few rounds of the draft.

The value and depth in this draft is on the defense line, wide receivers and safeties. So if there is offense linemen we want, we better pick him early because there isn't a lot of depth there. It to bad we didn't make a heavier invest on offense line last draft when there was a lot of quality interior offense linemen.

I agree. If these two are as good as the reports say -- they would catapult Denver into a top ten D.

I like the DE pick and I really hope the d-line is addressed or it might never happen.

Thanks for posting, good stuff.

I was curious what the the reasoning was I think they should throw money at Wilfork and get the BPA and if that is Dez fine with me.

I was listening to Sirius on tues or wed and Pat Kirwin(I believe) was gushing about Dan Williams. Likening him to a BJ Raji type while saying Terrance Cody was more of a Wilfork type.

Me too. I don't know about you, but Iupati looked much better in the practices than in the game. Especially when he wasn't playing left guard. And Troy knows how to make pass rushers.

The Iupati hype machine hit full speed before the game was played, As it stands now, if we use a 1st round pick on him I would go ballistic.
