Default Lou Riddick has Denver taking Hack at 31

We do need a QB, obviously but that would be a major reach with lots of stud DL still on board.

I don't see it but if it were to happen I would have to think Elway and Kubes think highly of him...or if it's Connor Cook. I don't think they would reach on a QB. If we take QB at 31 then whoever it is has to be a guy that Kubes especially thinks he can get some production out of. I just don't think they'll do it.

Heagraves nor Buckner is going that low. Treadwell to GB would be... Rodgers with an added monster target...that's just unfair to the rest of the NFL.

Hack in the first is criminal. Absolutely criminal. That's Detroit Lions under Matt Millen level stupid.

Elway seems pretty set with Sanchez for now, i dont think he'd reach for a guy like Hack.

Lynch obviously i can see, but if Jones/Bullard/Nkemdiche, other DL are still there, i have to think thats the direction they go.

ESPN had Ryan Nassib going at #8 in 2013 and the kid was drafted in the 4th round.

Oh my God, I forgot all about the Nassib hype.
How scouts were in love with him and his intangibles and he was flying up the draft boards.

If hand size really does matter to Elway, then Hackenberg would not be of interest.

I hate these mock draft predictions. Almost all of them are worthless.

While I think he could be worth a gamble in the third round, I'll be a little stumped if he's taken in the first. I think there's some upside there, but def not in the first. Way too many good DL will still be on the board.

According to this mock, none of the three get taken in the first. Just can't see that happening.

At least 2 go in the first and I could see Jones going pretty damn high. Like the OM say "What the **** was that team thinking." DJ Hayden type of high.

Five first-round QBs in this draft? I suppose its possible given how qb-hungry the league is but most serious analysts are only giving three QBs (Lynch, Goff and Wentz) a first round grade. Hackenberg is considered borderline undraftable by many due to his serious accuracy issues, he's worse than Tebow in terms of passing and doesn't even have tebow's same level of intangibles.

This is a bad, bad mock draft.....but I hate mock drafts anyway, even the good ones - bring on the real thing!!!

Wouldn't shock me. Dude can ball. Also think Vernon Butler is a strong candidate to go higher than expected.

For OM mock purposes, I'm hoping so.

The issue with Butler is that unless you are elite at something.... non pass rushing production DT's have fallen in the past few drafts. Danny Shelton is the last guy who went high more recently.

I could see Bullard slip out of the 1st.

Jones and Nkemdiche would be a surprise.

Elway seemed very giddy about Nkemdiche on Thursday, wouldnt even be surprised if we traded one of our 5ths to move up for him.

He's just trying to create enough drama to stay on the NFL draft coverage.
ESPN loves drama and when you put out a mock such as that... it invites drama.

At this point I don't see Bullard going in the first, too many scouts continue to talk about the lack of size with him.
But the team that gets him in the 2nd should he fall...gonna get a damn beast.

There are a lot of omaners who should apply for his position. That mock is a joke.

They're always a joke. Rick Gosselin's mock the day before the real draft is the only good one.

I think that would be a strong move by Elway. I like Hack & wouldn't be surprised if he were the first QB taken in the 2nd round. If Elway likes him, if he can't slide back a few picks in the 2nd, 31 May be his only option.

I think Elway has shown he doesn't reach. With the defense squared away and an improved running game a decent game manager is all we need. If Sanchez accepts that the game doesn't rely on him he won't be to bad. They just need to have him repeat "when in doubt throw it out (of bounds) 200 times a day.
