  • Broncos' draft Agree...disagree... what picks are good?

    1. First Round — Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

    Let me just start by saying, this is a very deep draft. The Broncos could, depending upon what guys are still available, try to trade down and out of the first round, even though it might just be by a couple of picks. Having additional selections in this draft isn’t a bad thing by any means.

    The Broncos are no strangers to making slightly ‘shocker’ selections in the draft. Guys that don’t necessarily receive unanimous first round grades from ESPN or other main outlets but guys that they do a lot of homework on and really feel can make an impact.

    Last year, we saw that with the third round selection of Kayvon Webster, a player who turned out to be pretty solid his rookie season.

    Fuller is a guy with good size at 6’0″ 194 pounds, good ball skills, and solid athletic ability. Here’s what NFL Network’s Mike Mayock had to say about him:

    “The Fuller kid, I really like, I think he can flat-out play,” Mayock said during a conference call Tuesday. “I just want to see what he runs. I think he’s long. He tackles. He’s got ball skills.”

    2. Second Round — Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State

    Extremely productive safety who looks the part, hits like a ton of bricks, and has great ball skills. His hip fluidity has scouts concerned he won’t be able to be a long-term starting safety in the NFL, but I think he has the experience and productivity the Broncos like in prospects.

    This is a player that I have really liked for the Broncos for a while now.

    3. Third Round — Chris Borland, LB, Wisconsin


    Borland plays with the kind of fire and passion that I love to see out of a linebacker, and he could be just what the doctor ordered for the Broncos. Obviously at just 6’0″ he’s not the ideal size for the position, but you can’t deny this guy’s production and ability to make plays on a consistent basis.

    I think in the third round, he’s well worth the risk. In the NFL anymore you need a steady middle linebacker, but you don’t necessarily need him to play 100 percent of the snaps. Borland is a guy who could provide the Broncos with toughness against the run, occasional pass rush on blitzes, and leadership. I would love this pick.

    4. Fourth Round — Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma

    Colvin was once projected as a first round pick to the Broncos by CBS Sports, and thanks to a torn ACL (which still sucks), some team is going to be able to get him on the cheap this year and as a potential “redshirt” rookie for his first year in the NFL.

    Colvin is a bigger, more physical cornerback prospect who has the kind of length and toughness the Broncos need at the cornerback position. The Broncos have taken risks on players who were injured in the past, such as Omar Bolden and Quanterus Smith.

    5. Fifth Round — Jeff Janis, WR, Saginaw Valley State

    Speedy receiver with great size and production that is expected to test really well at the Scouting Combine. The Broncos only have two wide receivers under contract as of this particular moment in time, and this is a good draft to look to stockpile some young talent at that position if they want. They have shown significant interest in Janis, meeting with him at both the Senior Bowl and Combine.

    6. Sixth Round — Josh Stewart, WR, Oklahoma State


    Injuries have sent his draft stock down the pipes, but Stewart is a pretty well-built, compact receiver prospect with speed and playmaking ability. He can also contribute as a returner and that’s an area the Broncos could be looking to upgrade if Trindon Holliday is let go as expected.

    7. Seventh Round — Ben Gardner, DE, Stanford


    Ben Gardner is a guy that the Broncos would cash in on as another potential injured player who could be a gem down the road. He’s not an athlete that will jump off the page at you but he’s a hard worker and a productive player who can give them versatility on the defensive front.

      I would have no issue with that draft. Especially Colvin in the 4th.

        What if we were the team trading up so we could get a couple of sure-fire defensive starters in this draft? You can sign 1st round guys to insanely cheap 5yr. deals now so if we could could use our 1st for say a cornerback starter ,then trade up to get into the top 40 for a LB or Safety thats not the worst plan imo. If we can pull 2 legit starters from the draft that means we'll have a truck load of cash to sign a top RB, WR, DE and LB. We could conceivably give out 4 big contracts if we found 2 starters in this draft.

          The top FA RB just WAS our RB....why would we spend money on a new one?

            He is no longer our RB... he and Decker our now both Free Agents. Both of those players were always going to test the market. They would be stupid not to. So to answer your question... we would spend money on a new one so we dont have to give Moreno the franchise tag.

              How long have you been watching football? How many "sure fire" players are in the draft. Look at last years draft and tell me who those "sure fire" players were.

                We are not using the franchise tag on Moreno either way.

                    I love Fuller. I would prefer Calvin Pryor over Bucannon. I think this needs to be a secondary heavy off-season for the Broncos.

                      The fact that you think it's even a possibility they would franchise Moreno is cute. As in retarded cute.

                        I'm not even sure Moreno signs elsewhere. Some players fit their own team better than any other out there and I think that's the case with Moreno. I could see him testing the waters, seeing what market value is, and returning to Denver just as easily as I can see him signing with another team.

                        Decker, on the other hand, I think will be in much higher demand and thus will price himself out of Denver.

                          You literally just said you wanted to free up money to sign a top RB or WR.....Moreno and Decker are probably the top FA RB and WR. What you say makes no sense.

                            Why do i even waste my time here? You regulars dont even possess basic reading comprehension skills. Is it because of the dope? Seriously? Where did I write that we should TAG Moreno?

                              ****ing wow. Just wow. I said "A"top guy, not the top guy. Moreno and Deck are free agents. They are available to the highest bidder now. The fact that they were Broncos 3 weeks ago means nothing now..
                              Thats it. I'm officially too old and too intelligent for you jokers. Peace.
