Default Favorite Draft Pick for the Broncos Right Now

This is a thread where you can put up your favorite draft pick for the Broncos week by week. This is week four, so you can see who you favor early in the season compared to who you want once the season comes to an end. Feel free to change your favorite prospective pick from week to week. That's the whole point. Here's the player I would most like to see drafted after the Titans game:

Allen Bradford, RB, USC, 6' 0", 225, 4.5 forty



A big guy who runs straight downhill and is very fast and hard to bring down. Very impressive Saturday against Washington.

I know it's early, but I really like that Lattimore kid from South Carolina. Runs real hard! Marcus Lattimore!
Another guy I like is another Gamecock. WR Alshon Jeffery. Big guy with great hands! Only a Sophmore.

Just two guys that I think would be great to look at if they keep up what they've done early in their careers!

Miller is a pass-rusher extraordinare for the Texas A&M Aggies defense. With great size and speed for the position, Miller's talents project best to outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense at the NFL level.

The 3-4 defense has become the preferred defensive scheme for most NFL defensive coordinators, and with that shift in methodology comes a shift in the types of players drafted. In today's NFL Watt is a premier defensive end prospect for the 3-4 defense. Long, lean, strong and fast; Watt is ideal for the three man front.

Jordan has quickly risen to the top of most draft boards with a very impressive senior season. Seen as a potential tackle or end, depending on the defensive front used. Jordan has the talent to be a top 10 pick, much like Tyson Alualu last season.

Dareus has talent to be the first overall pick in either the 2011 or 2012 NFL Draft, but his production has not been what you would expect from a top pick. He has excellent size, strength and speed but his motor doesn't seem to run on every play.

As the Auburn Tigers have surprised everyone this season to become one of the best teams in the country, Fairley has also risen. Fairley is currently ranked as our top defensive tackle, and for good reason. Few players in the NCAA have been as dominant on defense this season.

One of our favorite college football players to watch, Bailey is a terror for opposing offenses. A defensive tackle/end hybrid, Bailey could play any position along the defensive line in the NFL. His value and versatility, combined with freakish speed, will make him a very high draft pick.

Quinn had the chance to be the first player taken this April, but he lost that when he accepted over $5,600 in improper benefits from an agent and was ruled ineligible permanently. All of that aside, Quinn is incredibly talented. His stock will suffer from a lack of film and play in 2010, but he is too talented to fall very far.

Bowers is among the most physically gifted players we have ever had the pleasure of scouting. He has a rare blend of size, speed, agility and toughness. While some defensive ends are fast, they are often soft and timid. Bowers is one of the few with speed to run down running backs, but the toughness to mix it up with tackles.

Clayborn, our top defensive end for the 2011 draft, does not have the crazy speed of Da'Quan Bowers or the pure play-making skills of Allen Bailey. What he does have is a motor that never stops, an ability to play tackle or end and a consistency that is rare in defensive linemen. Clayborn is not the most athletically talented end, but he is the best football player.

Paea, he has a strength - explosion combination that is almost as good as Suh, he has size and an a motor that goes like the energizer bunny. He takes double teams all the time and still produces, I would love him on either the outside or inside in 3-4 at 312 lbs now, he could definitely go up to 330 if needed or just stay around 310 and be a DE.

It's early sunday 11-20-10 watched the Neb. vs A&m game last evening. Saw some very Impressive players.
LB.. Von Miller. CB.. Amakamura, DE.. P Smith. RB Helu jr. Miller and Amakamura are 1st rounders.

Is anyone here concerned about the draft picks we've given up in the mid rounds besides me? Do you think we need to do do some trading after the season ends to stockpile picks?

Well, we have an extra second rounder.

I'm not sure where we exactly stand everywhere else.

More picks would be great.

I'm wondering if they're going to resign Champ? DJ? Dawkins?
Champ and DJ should bring a 2 &4. Imo Dawkins a 4-5 at least.
What do you think?

Champ is a free agent, why would he do a sign and trade?

We have an option on Dawkins, I'm not sure we pick it up. At this point, why would anybody trade for an over-the-hill safety when they can probably just pick him up on the wire?

Williams? Not sure he would be traded either. Possibly, because of potential suspension, but he isn't going to garner a high selection. He is a good football player, not great or spectacular, but I don't see how moving him helps the team.
