Default Bowers or a Defensive Tackle with 2a?

Bowers has really slid. As many has noted, he must have a glaring red flag. But is the first pick of the 2nd the spot where the upside is worth the risk? Or do you take a DT, which is a greater need?

I'm happy with austin or bowers or aaron williams (this guy can play safety too which we direly need)

Peae is ok I guess. Sucks that wilkerson, taylor, jordan all bounced off the board so fast

DT- There is enough concern with Bowers' health that he would be completely off my board.

I love Bowers, but he doesn't fit. He's an edge rusher. With Doom and Miller as the edge rushers, there's simply nowhere to play him. Plus, he has top 5 talent, so the fact that he's still available means that the knee issue must be pretty serious. We don't need to draft another injury risk. Austin or Paea at #36.

If we come away with Bowers, Peaea or Jurrell Casey with 2a, I'll be happy.

We have Doom, Miller and Ayers...no reason to draft a DE when we have **** at DT. Get two studs in the middle and we may have something special next year.

Best available for Denver:

Bowers
Paea
Austin
Aaron Williams
Kendall Hunter
Drake Nevis
Christian Ballard
Brandon Harris
Jerrell Powe
Kyle Rudolph
Jarvis Jenkins

Two of those guys will likely be available when the Broncos pick at 36 and 46.

Austin is better than Paea, and there is nowhere to play Bowers with Doom and Miller as the edge guys.

Dog, You are kidding right? These guys have been 1st round graded for months, just because you hope they fall to Denver does not mean they should have been 2nd rounders.

Any of the following this round would be great:
Bowers
Austin
Paea
Ayers
Rahim Moore is we go safety
Martez Wilson
Ijalana
Houston
Bailey

Does no one get that even if Bowers is healthy, there is nowhere to play him? He's an edge rusher....we have to Doom already established as one of those guys and Miller was drafted to be the other. I love Bowers, but he doesn't fit. Austin or Paea.

I know. But they fell further than expected, thus, I think it would have been worth a trade up to snag a fatsnack. Also, easier.

Default rookie d-line this year?

#4 Austin ...1st round talent
#14 Paea ....strong like bull! 48 bench reps

Is that possible? Don't see a larger hole than DT...other than safety....no offense please!

I would jizz in my pants if we got both.

Then maybe DJ Williams in the 3rd or whoever the best TE is.

If they're going Safety, I'd rather take Aaron Williams CB/S over Moore.

I will be mad if we don't get a DT in this round. Either Austin or Paea. Then either another DT or the best S available. Then MLB or TE in round 3. But can't decide who I would rather have, Paea or Austin.

Don't take a safety early. It's a need, but a poor draft for the position. Take Ahamd Black in the 6th (if available). Not much risk at that point, awesome production in college, worst case he's a special teams ace.

Austin would have been a top 5 pick had he not had to sit out a year. The character flags don't bother me because I think A LOT of top prospect collegians are guilty of the same thing without getting caught. Take him if he's there. Paea is great if he isn't (and I'm OK with him even if Austin IS still there, though I think I'd be a missed opportunity at getting greatness).

i don't care what anyone says, if bowers is available at 36, take him...

screw it, i'm swinging for the fences if i'm xanders and crew...

bpa baby....you can never have too many playmakers on defense, esp pass rushers...

besides, its not exactly set in stone ayers is our answer at DE...perhaps bowers beats him out...

There's always a place. You play 60 minutes at full speed and tell me you're not tired.

Bowers top skill set is as an edge rusher...where the hell do you play him with Miller and Doom on the edge? Simply not a good fit. You can't even get creative with him with Doom and Miller already there.

I would love both. Haven't seen enough of either of them though. I watched Paea a bit and really liked him. I think he was a top 20 pick if he could have worked out.
