    I'm a big fan of Weatherspoon. I think he would be a good fit in Denver and could be a great pro. I'd definitely be happy if they took him.

    Interesting info on Weatherspoon...

    http://www.milehighreport.com/2010/4...ack-draft-sean

    Here is what Weatherspoon tweeted on Tuesday:
    Great meeting with Coach McDaniels, Martindale and Roman Phifer! I can dig it! What does Twitter think about me and DJ Williams side by side
    But I personally like:

    The other thing I didn't realize about "Spoon" until someone alerted me to the fact, is that he's a fan of 80s-hair metal.
    Metal horns up! This guy was my darkhorse before... now I'm openly rooting for him to be a Bronco. They can adjust the scheme to give him and DJ more interchangable roles (iirc, the Steelers do this with their inside guys).

    Brandon Graham appears to be in the mix:

    It seems we're taking a look at the "name" guys now (McClain, Bryant, Tebow, Graham). I wonder if this is more about due dilligence than them being high on our list. I remember last year we took a look at Sanchez in the week leading up to the draft... it seemed to be a "cover your bases" visit rather than an indication of serious interest.

    I was wondering when they were going to bring this guy in:

    The stars are all out in Denver today. Alabama LB Rolando McClain, a candidate for 11th overall pick, joins Tebow, Dez visiting Broncos
    More OL as well:

    Offensive lineman Zane Beadles, whose been hampered with a hamstring injury throughout the pre-draft process, is hoping to run for scouts either this Friday the 16th or Saturday the 17th. Beadles has visited with the Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos.

    I can't see trading Marshall unless we get good value for him. He's not Santonio Homles. If we can't get a good deal for him then we keep him and if he doesn't want to play he can ride the bench. Then we can franchise tag him next year until we can get a good offer. Theres zero reason to let go of a top 3 WR in the league for little value. Which of course means he'll go to Seattle for their 4th round pick and Owen Schmitt

    I agree 100%.

    I seriously wonder if this is some kind of smokescreen. It's a wierd fit considering the moves we've made.

    i just threw up a little in my mouth.
    LOL. I suspected that would get a reaction.

    As for our first rounder, as it stands I don't think Spiller is on the radar (unless that rumor about him coming in for a visit was true). Also considering the guys we've talked to who could go in the 1st (in rough order of value):

    WR Dez Bryant
    NT Dan Williams
    LB Sean Weatherspoon
    C Maurkice Pouncey
    WR Arrelious Benn
    DE Jared Odrick

    It seems to me we are looking at true needs in round 1, not luxury picks.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Benn has previously conducted a private workout for the Broncos.
