    Not much of a surprise that we are taking a close look at Sean Weatherspoon:

    http://smu.scout.com/2/959004.html

    The link also says that we're working out Damian Williams on April 8, then he's coming in to Denver for a visit.

    This is good news IMO, as I really like both of these prospects.

            There are rumors that we've talked to both Spiller and E.J. Wilson (DE, NC), but I have yet to see any link confirming that... and until I do, they aren't going on the list.

              Apparently we had Dan Williams in for a workout today:

              Also, we've taken a look at two small school guys:

              OT Jared Veldheer

              QB/WR Armanti Edwards

                Another prospect I like - WR Eric Decker

                http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...nd-Chiefs.html

                We are kicking the tires on a lot of receivers.

                  happy to see we've worked out shipley and decker... assuming the mcdaniels offense is here for a while, i think they both fit far better than most of the guys in the draft this year. also interesting that we've worked out mccluster and gerhart... pretty different players.
                  do you think kenny mckinley has a future at slot? he was only a fifth rounder but he seems like a guy who projects well as an inside receiver. it's a little surprising to me that we've worked out so many guys that are going to be restricted to playing the slot at the next level.

                  also, not sold on weatherspoon for us... i'm not sure if i like him at ILB, and i can't imagine we'd draft another OLB.
                  definitely agree. i dont see him as a good fit as he's too similar to dj. no idea why so many fans want him over mcclain
                  Now the only ones I take are the ones that I wear
                  Ain't takin no shorts no more

                    IMO, McKinley needs to get stronger and more decisive before he can be a real contributor to the team.

                    As for the slot receiver thing, McD is on a quest to find someone to play a Welker-like role in our offense.

                    i dont see him as a good fit as he's too similar to dj. no idea why so many fans want him over mcclain
                    DJ wishes he had the leadership and aggression of Spoon. You're right though - that pick would make DJ expendable in the long run.

                    I like McClain and will have no issues if we draft him. However, you need to consider the value of a TED linebacker, which is essentially a two-down role, at 11. If we want to adjust the scheme to make the two inside guys interchangable, cool, but that would just strengthen the case for Spoon as he's more versatile.

                      Looks like we are bringing Arrelious Benn in for a second look:

                      http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...-Steelers.html

                      Next week, he has a meeting with the Denver Broncos.

                      Benn has previously conducted a private workout for the Broncos.
                      I'm always curious when they meet with a prospect multiple times. A second look just to confirm an earlier decision? Need more info to sort out two prospects that have very similar grades?

                        Thanks, bro.

                        happy to see we've worked out shipley and decker... assuming the mcdaniels offense is here for a while, i think they both fit far better than most of the guys in the draft this year.
                        Yeah, they very much fit the mould in terms of what the coaches from the Patriots' tree are looking for.

                        also interesting that we've worked out mccluster and gerhart... pretty different players.
                        I wonder if McCluster was looked at with an eye to using him as a full-time slot receiver, rather than a scatback.

                        From what we've seen so far, it appears McD emphasizes the tactical use of personnel and is looking at prospects that could add some diversity to the attack. This is a good thing, IMO. Take the best weapons available and build them into your offensive scheme.

                          You think Benn is the target if Marshall gets traded, and a Shipley-type player is targeted regardless to fit into the slot?

                            I think it is just as likely that the Broncos have another receiver graded ahead of Benn, and the team is taking a second look at Benn just to be sure they've made the right decision.

                            That being said, yes, an outside receiver if Marshall goes and a guy to play inside regardless.

                              Tebow

                              Interesting twist:

                              http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...-in-Tebow.html

                              Tebow makes a trip to Denver this week where the Broncos have quarterbacks they have traded for in the last year: Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn.
                              He's got the right intangibles.
