I got from him that he's one of those natural guys. The game just comes easy to him. His football instincts are top notch and he's a freak athlete. Its not likely that he has problems adjusting to whatever he's asked to do.

Still, the point stands. If you get multiple DUIs, you are probably driving under the influence A LOT.
Thanks, and I agree.

The Denver Broncos are interested in bidding for free-agent LB Stephen Nicholas (Falcons) once free agency begins, reports D. Orlando Ledbetter, of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

I think this was posted elsewhere. Nicholas is a WLB, so I guess they would put DJ at MLB? Or maybe even release him. He's probably facing another suspension and his salary ($6 million) is steep for a guy who is just above average, so I wouldn't rule it out.

He would be an immediate upgrade for the Broncos. He's really an underrated, all-around linebacker. He's been able to play the weak and strong side since he's been with us and can actually blitz pretty well. For the inevitable "if he's so great, why aren't they bringing him back?", it's because he's looking for a bigger contract than we're probably willing to give him.

Nicholas played the strong side this past season, alternating with Weatherspoon while he was injured and working his way back into the lineup. He's pretty versatile and has worked in a scheme similar to Fox's.

Boy Im torn. Initially I looked at this as the time to finally get premium help up front but as time has moved on I lean more towards getting an elite prospect like Miller or Peterson than a good prospect like Dareus or risky one like Fairley. As long as its not a QB Ill be fine but I right now if trading down isnt an option, Id lean towards one of the two best playmaking defenders in Miller and Peterson instead of Dareus (who looks more like a 3-4 guy to me) or Fairley (who has character concerns and only one big time year of production but would be a better fit and value at the pick than Dareus).

Tomorrow should be exciting and if Schefter is right Ill look forward to watching Doom rush the passer on one side, Ayers on the other (finally from his natural position in a 4-3) and Miller blitzing all over the place.

I can't see them cutting DJ whenever he would still have open market value (especially as a WLB) if teams ever agree to let vet trades proceed.

I don't even care anymore who we pick, as long as it's one of the big three, I just can't wait for the draft!

#2 seems high for a SLB to me. I would get more excited over a Patrick Willis type LBer.

Ah, gotcha. I would think he would be out of the picture if we draft Miller, unless they do, in fact, plan to release DJ.

Maybe, but at his salary it would likely be hard to move him.

So does this shut the door on any kind of trade down from 2?

What other teams are hot for Miller?

I like him, but not at 2.

If we pass, he probably goes to Buffalo at #3. Arizona at #5 at the lowest.

I think we like Miller the most out of any prospect but ultimately pass up on him due to the fact we may not be able to utilize his strengths to the best of their ability and draft Patrick Peterson the safest player on the board that we can draft.

If we draft Miller at #2 we better be sure he can line up at SLB and drop back in coverage when we need him to, if we were running a 3-4 it be a no brainer but with us wanting be a 4-3 team I can't see it. Also don't rule out the Broncos hyping Miller up as the pick to entice someone who wants him to ask the Broncos what they want for him.

In this day and age of guaranteed money that may well be a problem or not depending on what is guaranteed and whether Denver would be on the hook for it. He's still a good player, just been ****ed about for 3-4 seasons with different schemes, different positions and turds playing directly in front of him. How he would love to have a Ngata or Gregg in front of him like Lewis has had for a few years.

Plenty of the analysts in this draft including Mayock stated as late as yesterday/today that Miller's best fit was 3-4 OLB but then he goes and chucks Miller to us in his mock at 2. Go figure, maybe he thinks that the player is just too good to pass up at 2 even if it is not an ideal scheme for him. I suppose we'll know in 22 hours or so.

Fox said they cant afford to miss and this becomes somewhat problematic when Miller has no defined position.

Im predicting a DT.

how much longer are we stuck with DJs bloated contract?

if we got Nicholas, how much would it cost us to cut ties completely with DJ?

Sorry, I don't buy the excuse that he's been "****ed" playing out of position. He's an underachiever based on his talent level, period. Willis has had garbage in front of him most of his career, but he still plays at an All-Pro level, so I don't want to hear it. DJ on any team and under any circumstances is an above average player, but that's it. Overpayed based on performance/production.
