Adopt-a-Bronco:
None
Default 3-4 ends beyond Fairley/Dareus

Cameron Hayward, Ohio State ~ 6.5/290
Cameron Jordan, California ~ 6.4/285
Christian Ballard, Iowa ~ 6.5/300
Allen Bailey, Miami ~ 6.4/285
*Jared Crick, Nebraska ~ 6.6/285
*Muhammad Wilkerson, Temple ~ 6.5/300
*JJ Watt, Wisconsin ~ 6.6/290


What are people`s thoughts on these guys? From what I`ve read, Watt and Wilkerson have my attention. Will they make it to our two second rounders?

Wilkerson and Ballard, yeah.

The others, it would be awfully close.

Jordan is a first-round prospect. Heyward was considered a Top 15 talent going into the season, but reports are variable on him now. He will probably go in the late-first.

J.J. Watt and Jared Crick are risers -- at least they probably will be, probably first-rounders.

Wouldn't consider Fairley an ideal fit for a 3-4 end either.

All of these players above fit much, much better and provide sound value for their talents as opposed to him.

Lawrence Guy is also a possibility in that second round mix, if he declares.

Jarvis Jenkins in round three or after for a value selection.

At some point the Broncos have to make an investment into the DL. Would love to come out of the draft with one of these guys, maybe even two. I would **** my pants if we got Dareus and Heyward. Crick is staying in school I heard.

It`d be quite mind blowing if we drafted back to 6-8 in the first and picked a CB, and added to DE`s and a NT in the second. Imagine a whole D-line in one round. Though if the lockout approached September, they`d probably not see the field until December.
