Gonna guess the thread title will be predicting the #2 pick.

Going with Marcell Dareus

After Elway's comment yesterday on the season ticket holder conference call that he believes the lockout puts extra emphasis on taking the best player and not reaching for need - and considering he gushed over this guy far more than any other player - I think the Broncos take the best player on the board and in the entire draft...

Think they'll take Dareus

Would prefer a trade down to #5 and take whoever remains of Dareus, Peterson, or Miller

Would be fine if they took Peterson at #2 also

I think they will draft Fairley. He's no chior boy, but neither was Warren Sapp. But Warren Sapp/Niel Smith is exactly the kind of player I think we'll be getting with him. I don't think the FO will be able to pass on the opportunity to pair him up with Elvis.

I agree completely, just don't think anyone is going to be that hot for the QB's in this draft to pay the ransom to move up and Dareus is definitely number 2 overall caliber. It'll be nice to have something to watch for on the Dline again.

I'd have erection larger than any in my life time that would last the entire lock out, but I still THINK they'll go with Dareus.

More than any other position, Denver needs someone who can clog the middle and stop the run...

I get the feeling Denver would prefer Miller over anyone, but will select Dareus if they remain at the #2 selection.

I wouldn't[ mind Fairley at all. I think there some question marks there and would prefer a trade down obviously... But I think his ceiling as well as Miller and Peterson are higher than Dareus'. Peterson has the same high floor as Dareus.

Safest pick, Marcel Dareus or Patrick Peterson.

Highest risk/Reward pick... Nick Fairley.

Somewhere inbetween, Von Miller.

its either dareus or miller, i wonder if them being odd about talking about him is them trying not to give anything away. but dareus is the smart answer, given hes not taken #1.

yea that doesnt make much sense.

in their presser and stuff, they immediately started questioning how miller could fit into the team, saying there is question marks there (which i guess there kinda is). just wonder if they are trying to downplay interest, because a lot of reports came out saying denver is very interested in him.

This is why Miller is my last fav option. I think he is better 3-4 guy. If we draft him I'll hope we are creative using him.

absolutely, i would more question the use of LBs as pressure guys in fox' system, im not sure how much he uses them. miller would be a beast though hes fast enough to cover anyone, obviously bring pressure on the QB as well as wrap up and not wiff on tackles. no doubt he can succeed in a 4-3, but they have to be extremely smart using him.

If we stay at #2, it's Dareus...no question. If we have a chance to trade out...then, it could be Peterson, Miller or Fairley.

Here's the deal.

If someone trades up from 5-8...the cost (by the value chart) would be a 2 and a 3. If I were Elway (big wish)...I'd settle for moving down for a 2. That would be a value trade for those wanting to move up to get either Gabbert, Dareus or Peterson.

The thing is. We like:

Dareus
Miller
Peterson, and;
Fairley

Considering the 2 QB's will be taken in the top 8...even if we drop down that far, we have a chance for one of our guys. If we drop to 4 or 5, there's no question. But, even at 8, I'd gamble it. I still think we'll get one of our top 5 at 8...and our list of top 5, have little separation.

would they do that for an extra 2?

I would!

Rev if we draft Peterson.

I very much expect that what they want to do is move down to #5 or #7 and take Fairley, Peterson, Miller or Dareus. One will still be on the board, and I'd be delighted with any of them.

That's not going to be easy though, and more likely than not we'll end up selecting at #2. I've a feeling Miller would be the pick there, in that case.
