The National Football Post's Wes Bunting is hearing that the Broncos are leaning toward Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers with the No. 2 overall pick.

Bowers makes some sense for a Broncos defense transitioning to a 4-3, yet there's still a decent chance the Panthers take him first overall. If that's the case, Bunting believes Auburn DT Nick Fairley would be Denver's choice in the No. 2 slot. If Denver does draft Bowers, it could be a sign that the new front office isn't sold on either Elvis Dumervil or Robert Ayers. Related: Broncos

Don't believe anything you hear before the draft

I'd prefer Fairley... just because I believe Ayers has big upside in his natural position... but either one would be a great pick.

I think Ayers has the potential to be a VERY good 4-3 DE. He has always been good at stopping the run and with Elvis blitzing from the other side he will be able to get anywhere from 5-10 sacks per season on average ( just guessing)

We shall call him Big Nasty



3 potentially top DEs or ask Ayers to pack on 20 pounds and move him to DT?

Why don't you link to NFP's story and not Rotoworld so we don't get the spin of a site that reports nothing on its own?

God, can you imagine it? Quality depth and talent at the DE position... how long has it been?

Would love the pick, and there'd be more than enough PT for Ayers and Doom even if we bring him in so that's not an issue at all.

I think Denver's #1 option is to move down. If they can't I expect pick to be Bowers honestly.

Man, that's a big guess. Ayers hasn't shown any passrush ability so far, and he's had plenty of opportunity. I'm very disappointed with him so far, but maybe he can improve.

I think moving back to a 4-3 says they're gonna stick with Elvis and Ayers at DE and hope for the best, and therefore eliminating picking a DE (Bowers) at #2.

Ayers is ok at DE, there's been plenty of 1st-rounders like him over the years that didn't quite get to great status but were solid all-around players. Just gonna have to wait and see.

It's not that big of a guess. When you have one very good passrusher the quarterback is forced to move around the pocket a lot more and the one good passrusher gives a lot of sacks to other Tackles and Ends because of the pressure on the quarterback. Ayers has proven he is very good at stopping the run. I Think he can be a pretty good DE.

No doubt.

This dude Bowers is a monster. Watch him just chuck people aside. He has power, quickness, and a toolbox of some spins and chucks to start with in the NFL. He's massive, strong, rushes the QB with everything he has, and has by all accounts a great disposition and attitude. To me, he looks like the best player in the draft.

I wouldnt be surprised at all if he was taken #1 overall.

Seriously you want him to go from OLB to DT. Just think about that for a bit. He player, lose lbs, be an OLB, nope we changed our mind, gain even more lbs then you ever had before and be a DT. It's just a lame idea.

Just an idea. Plus this is supposedly our last year of overhaul. I'm not saying it's the best idea either.
