Legwold said this moning they already worked out Peterson in FLA last week

Don't worry they have already have hit the big 4. Miller, Fairley,Dairus and Peterson. Even sent the Oline coach up to CU to investigate Solder

Legwold has even heard rumbling of microfracture and Bowers.

i think the stage is pretty much 100% set to take a DL before this happened, maybe this just confirms it.

doesn't mean they won't have him in for a workout.

Interesting though. Thought they'd want a free look.

I heard about that. I also read somewhere today that Denver scheduled a private workout with Peterson sometime between now and the draft. I'll try and hunt down where I heard it.

EDIT found it...

John Fox knows defense. he also strikes me more as a guy who will watch film and go off what a guy does in pads on the field more than what the same guy can do in shorts in a workout.

That is welcome news, and sounds correct.

I'm really happy we got Fox.

taking a corner with the 2 pick is retarded when you need people in the trenches.

If they were sure that they wanted to take him at #2, that is even more reason not to go. Little bit of misdirection!

Agreed. But how about taking him at 4 or 5?

Stood on numbers. Had dinner with Panthers. Frankly I'd be stunned if they didn't take him.

This guy is a freak athlete, a polished player at a premier position, and the ultimate team player. HE is the one that asked coaches if he could return kicks last year and in the season opener, SHATTERED the school record with 257 return yards.

He's the best player in the draft by a LARGE margin and if he slides to #2 (and make no mistake, that would be a SLIDE), we'd be buffoons to pass him even though I like Darius and Fairley a lot as pros.

+1....And reading between the lines, it seems Elway is on board with this line of thinking.

My post was removed because it contained a bad word. Bad Chris, bad.

NFL scout of team w/ top 10 pick said he's concerned with LSU CB P. Peterson's ability to make plays on ball. Noted Bama/A&M games. Peterson's still a stud but maybe not the "sure thing/best player in the draft" he's been made out to be.

That's simply someone doing whatever they possibly can to have him slip to their pick. Probably someone around 4-7.
