He looks good...and definitely worth the pick...but, is he the next Champ? I'm not sold.

If Denver wants to draft the best player available at their draft pick, then Patrick Peterson should be the choice.

That was a hell of a highlight reel. Peterson has got some serious body control.

Looks like a stud, but we need front 7 help worse than anything else.

I've learned not to get too excited about highlight videos. With that being said, I think this team needs talent more than anything, and if he is head and shoulders above any DL available at our spot, I am fine with taking BPA on defense.

Have we ever drafted the OMANE favorite? I think 60-70% of Posters would be happy with this pick, if we are able to grab him at #2.

The next Champ? He's Champ with 30 pounds. Elite coverage skills, ultra superior body control, explosive speed, leaps like a jack-rabbit, bigger than Steve Atwater. Did you see the pick on the sidelines? He moves with the grace of a ballerina and the speed of a greyhound. He's going to be a huge threat for someone in the return game as well. He would instantly become the most talented defensive player ever to wear Bronco colors. What i love most about this kid is that you can tell he wants to dominate his opponent.

That's what I want on this defense, guys that want to dominate the opponent.

He reminds me a lot of Charles Woodson when he was at Michigan. The top end speed, body control, supreme confidence is all there. Only thing is he's bigger. Draft this kid, resign Champ and this defense will improve a lot more than reaching for a 1 year wonder D-Lineman at pick # 2. Draft one or two of the many DE/DT that will be available at the top half of the 2nd round.

Can he play safety in the NFL or not? The guy looks too big for a corner

That's probably always going to be one of his drawbacks. It's a risk.

He's over 220 pounds and moves like a guy whose 190. He can play anywhre he wants to. The closest thing I rememver to him was Ronnie Lott, who also had the talent to play both CB and safety, but this kid's 20 pounds bigger than Lott was.

Seriously was thinking Charles Woodson while watching the video. I can't imagine having him paired with Champ. We have the ammunition to get back into the first round for a DL, or take a pair in the 2nd.

I'm sold on this guy. Having watched some LSU games this year and looking at the various highlight videos out there, this guy is a stud. Even if he struggles as an NFL CB, which I don't think he will, he can also excel at safety and as a KR/PR. He has the size and speed to be an asset all over the place.

If you look back at the past ten years of draft and look how many bust DL there have been out there, it is a bit scary. We would be better served looking to fill those gaps in the 2nd and 3rd rounds and bringing in some proven FAs.

The guy ran a 4.37 40 at an LSU work out this past may. That's a damn good 40 time. No need for him to move to safety.

I'm just saying Safety bc they can have more of an impact on the field, ala Troy Palamu and Ed Reed. Revis Island, Champ are great, but they don't have to account for them if they don't pass there way.
