Default Who would you rather have on the Broncos: Darrelle Revis or Ndamukong Suh?

Very simple question: If you could add either Revis or Suh to the Broncos this offseason, who would you choose?

Revis: Best corner in the game

Suh: Best DT in the game

Don't be a douche.

The fact that 100% of maners will answer Suh doesn't change the fact that Peterson is a much better pick than Dareus for Denver.

I'd take Suh. Younger. Capable of taking over a game. Good head on his shoulders.

Doesn't mean I wouldn't LOVE to have Peterson.

Honestly, if we get Peterson OR Dareus, we're going to come out of this draft in good shape.

I just wonder how many times peterson will get double-moved on for a touchdown within his first few years in the NFL.

Of course I'd take Suh. As for Dareus I'd love him here but, hope he is Suh calibur and not Warren calibur if we pick him. We need to hit jackpot with this pick

Patrick Peterson ran the second-fastest 40 at the combine and is projected to be a top-10, or potentially top-5 pick.


They say speed can't be taught. Tell that to the fastest first-rounder in the NFL draft.

Patrick Peterson is the last prospect that needs a lesson in running, but that's just what the dynamic cornerback from LSU signed up for before the Scouting Combine. Through a combine prep service, Peterson worked with four-time Olympic sprint medalist Ato Boldon, whose business venture involves preparing players for those make-or-break four-and-a-half seconds of the pre-draft process: the 40-yard dash.

"I believe [Boldon's tips] made me faster and helped me drop my 40 time significantly," said Peterson, a projected top-10 pick, by phone while visiting Denver, which owns the No. 2 pick.

Boldon's credentials shine. He won bronze in the 100 and 200 at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, then took home silver in the 100 and bronze in the 200 at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

Boldon, 37, brought Peterson and about 15 other draft hopefuls up to speed on the track at Florida Atlantic University a couple months ago. Last year, Boldon had a couple clients go to the combine but neither posted notable times. This year was a different story.
"My results were kind of crazy," Boldon said.
To wit:
• Peterson ran a 4.34, tied for No. 2 overall
• Maryland running back Da'Rel Scott also ran a 4.34
• Syracuse center Ryan Bartholomew ran a 4.97, second-best among offensive linemen
• Arkansas State tackle Derrick Newton ran a 5.01, good for third-best among offensive linemen

Boldon said his guys shave an average of two-tenths of a second off their 40 times after a few weeks of every-other-day sessions. The program isn't just repetitive sprints. First comes film study of Olympic sprinters. Maurice Greene and Tyson Gay jumping out of the blocks correlates to running the 40.

.................................................. ..................................................
"I thought Chris Johnson's record was really under threat," he said of Peterson. "If I give Patrick an instruction, I immediately see it shown back to me in what he does. It was kind of a dream. I was joking with my family, if I had 20 to 25 of him, I could rule this business. He is the most coachable athlete I've had in track or football."

[(This I Like ... perhaps the wonderlic was a fluke and not representative at all of his football IQ and ability to learn!!)

Peterson's biggest improvement with Boldon may be measured by pounds, not fractions of seconds. Listed at 222 on his 2010 LSU bio, he trimmed to 210 by training's end. But at the combine, Peterson was back up to 219 pounds, too much of a difference to challenge the record. Johnson weighed 195 when he ran the 4.24 in 2008.

"4.34 while nine pounds heavier, I'll take that," Boldon said.

Ato Boldon is a four-time Olympic medalist and finished second in the 100 at the Sydney Games in 2000.

(PS check the photo in the link below.. That is one mean lookin' corner!!)

Not yet. One year and an All Pro and Pro Bowler. I wouldn't worry about his run defense, the guy plays with heart and is a quick learner. Besides with the league becoming a passing league what better to have. I lament the fact that if we were to do so badly and end up with a #2 pick, it wasn't last year. He was a sure thing.

Went with Revis STRICTLY because he's playing at an all pro level for longer.

Is Suh the best DT in the game? I think that is debatable.

I think it is also debatable whether or not Revis is the best CB in the game.

But if Im building a defense, Im starting with Suh. I can get plenty of good enough CBs to cover for 3-4 seconds while my stupidly insane defensive front 7 is wrecking havoc with the oppositions offensive line and QB.

But hey, let's keep drafting excellent Corner's, Im sure eventually we can build a great defense that way.

You win in the trenches and Suh would be my pick but if we are making this about Dareus or Peterson I wouldn't mind either one but prefer Dareus

Darrius is the only choice unless the Broncos trade down.

I have no doubt that the first pick will be for the DL. Getting rid of Bannan and Williams leaves a huge hole. I do think we need a corner but personally I'd rather have a dominant safety.

That is a very interesting comparison. I wanted the Broncos to draft Okoye so badly, and I was very disappointed when it didn't happen. But...Okoye looked like a very special kid.

Yup. It's moronic to pretend there's a DT prospect like Suh in this draft, or that those guys come around every year. Peterson is every bit the prospect that Revis was, and probably better. Dareus will never hold a candle to Suh.


Prospects like Suh and Revis simply aren't available in every draft, which is why I believe in drafting one when you have the chance to. Peterson is that prospect this year.

If this was between Suh and Peterson, Suh would be a no brainer.
