Default Von Miller new Broncos Target...supposedly

And we enter the BS phase of the draft.

Von Miller as apparently the new broncos target. I would not be disappointed.
per roto, per klis:

Klis opined last weekend that a trade was unlikely. It still may be, but it appears that he's come upon new information. If John Elway can't trade down, Klis says the plan is to take Texas A&M OLB Von Miller. Just keep in mind that we're entering the period of disinformation leading up to the draft.

Eh, could be worse.

I feel like any of the 3 will be solid contributors for a decade. Not like we're looking at a Jamarcus Russell here.

I'd be OK with this only in a trade down scenario.

Why? It doesn't make sense he doesn't fit the profile of the LBs Fox has gone after.

well, you have to draft the player you believe is right. but man i hope we can trade down to get him or Peterson if they're the pick. #2 is too high for certain players even if they're the target.

He's Fast. That seems to be Fox's MO. Just because he doesn't have to be little to do it should not count against him.

IMO- Of all the Prospects he is the biggest lock for Top 5.

I think the Broncos really can't go wrong in this draft if they pick a defensive player --

Peterson, Miller, Fairely, Dareus, Bowers -- all will be impact.

That's kind of where I am at - I have my favorites on the list but I would not be unhappy with any of them. As long as the QB b.s. remains just that!

I don't think anyone knows anything outside of the Broncos brass themselves.

The only safe bet is that we won't be drafting a QB.

I agree with Klis that we won't be trading down, there just isn't enough to tempt anyone to move up.

I have preferences before Miller, but I wouldn't be too upset.

Which is why it makes sense to me to trade down to 5.

Meh, it's from the DP. But seriously, when was the last time a 4-3 defense turned its self around by investing in a SAM linebacker? Fix the ****ing line.

Screw that noise, Dareus FTW. I think Elway knows WTF he's doing.

The difference between Klis' opinion and anyone on the Orangemane's?

....he gets his published.

That said, I like Miller alot....would just rather Dareus at #2.

If we don't trade down, the pick has to be Dareus. I will say it over and over again.

I would be happy with Miller only if we trade to number 5 and both Dareus and Fairley were gone. Not that I don't like Miller as a player, but I just see a HUGE hole at the DT spot and both Dareus and Fairley are worthy of the #2 pick.

I like Miller. When you think about how much talent we are pushing from the linebackers to the d-line, adding some talent up the middle would be a good idea. Lord knows we need help at Safety and DT as well.

But middle of the field help - tight ends, tackles, linebackers and safeties are the order of the day.

This is the guy I want in blue and orange, but I'd rather trade down to 5 to grab him. If he's taken by pick 5, I'm fine with Dareus or Peterson.

why can't we ever just go out and get the best DT in the draft?

At this point, I would think that Dareus goes #1.

Agreed, if we can find a trade partner between 3 and 5. Guess that depends on how much teams like Gabbert or Newton. I don't think it becomes a real possibility unless Carolina grabs Newton IMO.
