    Just curious what you Denver Broncos fans think about Elway talking up a QB at number 2? Is this smokescreen? is he serious? Tebow is basically the same QB as Cam Newton (and the other two qbs mentioned in the below article)who for some reason is being talked about going #1 overall yet Tebow was not widely even considered a first round pick last year.

      The new regime is doing its homework, which is wise when you've got the opportunity to pick pretty much any player in the draft. I think their preference is to go for defense, though.

      If looking at QB's makes other teams nervous, well, that's a nice side benefit.

        Drafting a QB in the first round in two consecutive seasons? Not going to happen, especially if you have one of the worst defenses in the NFL. Not to mention, Tim Tebow is so marketable and - in my opinion - promising, I find it hard to believe that the Broncos would be willing to trade him away after 3 starts.

        I'm 99% positive that this is a drafting ploy to generate interest in the #2 pick (for a possible trade-down). Depending on the picks we get in a trade-down, it might be worth it. But I personally prefer that we stay at the #2 overall spot.

        Projected win total: 55+

            According to NFL Network's Mike Mayock, "everybody in the league" feels it would be an "upset" of the Broncos don't draft Alabama DT Marcell Dareus with the No. 2 pick in the draft. "Everybody in the league" is apparently already resigned to the fact that Carolina is drafting a quarterback. Dareus easily makes the most sense for a Denver team with perhaps the poorest defensive tackle depth chart in football. Dareus would give the Broncos another front-seven building block between young defensive end starters Elvis Dumervil (RE) and Robert Ayers (LE).

              Have they worked out Anthony Sherman? He is a really underrated player (best FB in the draft), John Fox uses the FB in his offense. He had a good one in Brad Hoover and also used a fourth round pick two years ago to draft his replacement - Tony Fiametta.

              I am working on a 7 round mock draft and was going to put Sherman to the Broncos in the 4th round but they don't have a 4th or 5th round pick. I know they have Spencer Larsen who is a very versatile player.

              Will the Broncos be employing the same offensive philosophy? The Broncos need an RB and TE (although FOX never seemed to have an impact TE during his tenure in Carolina).

              I do believe this draft will be focused on rebuilding the Broncos defense.

                I think this draft is deep enough on the D-Line that the Broncos will go with Peterson at number 2 and address the defense line in the second.

                  Speaking of later round TE's, here's some interesting stuff from the guy at Portland State regarding his visit with our TE coach:

                  The tight end coach Barone came in from Denver on the 16th and we had a really good meeting I felt. Compared to other visits it was a lot about their plays and formations and see how well you can remember things. This meeting was more about what are you looking for when you get to the line and what are you identifying and picking up on with the defense based on alignments and where eyes are. It was more what I could pick up intuitively about the game.

                      any chance you can * the lines that are new?
                      I will endeavor to mark it a little more clearly. I was putting the newest ones at the bottom before, but the jumble of positions bothered me as I like to quickly see where the team is focusing its efforts.

                          Lots of action at HQ this week:

                          http://twitter.com/johnelway

                          Busy week ahead with 13 of our 30 allotted draft prospect visits scheduled to meet with us at our facility.
                          Da'Quan Bowers, Nick Fairley and Von Miller are among the players that we are bringing in this week.
                          I'd like to see the other 10... most of the ones I've posted were private workouts, which are not necessarily visits to the team facilities.

                            Given Elway's continuing comments about not having a franchise QB, I'd agree. He really wants to trade down.

                            I can understand the reasoning why, but I just don't feel like it's super-necessary to accumulate one or two more draft picks. It's going to take more than one year to turn this team around. Draft quality is more important than quantity, and with the #2 overall pick, we're in a prime position to do that. Get the right players this year, and build upon that foundation the following year.

                            Although, if by "trading down," we're trading our pick to either Buffalo or Cincinnati, I'm all for it.

                              Temple safety Jaiquawn Jarrett is visiting the Denver Broncos today and the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday followed by the New York Jets on April 11, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
                              1 down, 9 to go. Elway should just tweet all the names rather than having them trickle out like this.

                                3 more for this week plus future visit with Newton...

                                http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_17772110

                                Besides Bowers, the Broncos will meet today with linebacker Von Miller, defensive tackle Nick Fairley on Wednesday and quarterback Cam Newton on April 19.

                                The Broncos also have two picks in the second round, which is why they visited with Temple safety Jaiquawn Jarrett on Monday and are bringing in linebacker Mason Foster of Washington, defensive tackle Marvin Austin of North Carolina and Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick this week.
