    i suspect that if, say, meriweather were there in the late 7th, shanny might think the risk was so minimal as to be worth it. i highly doubt he does something like taking him in the 2nd. in fact, it wouldn't surprise me to not see us draft a safety at all, especially if cornerback talent in the 3rdish is decent and shanny think foxworth can be left at S.

    I would hope that Shanny would draft Merriwether should he fall to the seventh... :shock:

    And I'd be disappointed if we didn't address safety on day one...

      • shanny was ready to go with nick fergican'tcovermolasses and lynch last year. i can't imagine he's seen much to change his mind if he was ok with it then. not that i agree, i advocated a first round safety last year.

I think that the most sensible pick right now would be at DT.. Lang and Ekuban, and dumervil are average players, so i think shanahan ends up adressing our Amobi Okoye please
            shanahan gets these hunches on players and doesnt give up..

                ah, missed that post. i pray we get okoye, but i have full faith we'll do something stupid like take Rice in the first and address some other non-essential need in the second.

                  S, DT or DE... otherwise, I'm unhappy.

                    A quick glance at the forum mock for Denver would have most people saying that also. However, I was able to fill every pressing need Denver had this forum mock, thru trade, and drafting.

                    Biggest Need for us is on the Defensive Line. I acquired Patrick Kerney, and Simeon Rice for hardly anything. After you add up the picks I traded and then match them with the value of the player under the assumption that the trades were even under the point system. I ended up getting Simeon Rice for a mid Fifth round pick. Patrick Kerney who in my mind is a top 5 DE in the league only costed me about the value of a mid 2nd rounder. Can you honestly say I could of gotten anything better in the 2nd round then Kerney, or in the 5th round then Rice? I don't think so. I was able to make Defensive End which was a weak point on our team, to a strong point, very very cheaply.

                    I also was able to acquire via trade Deon Grant ( For about a late third round pick value), Who is one of my favoriate players to watch, as well as a very underrated saftey. He can move in and play Strong or Free saftey for us. A depth need that we really could of used last year instead of starting Foxworth, or Cox at saftey.

                    So before the draft even started, I already filled three of our biggest position needs.

                    in the Draft < still going, but not going to get any starters this late in the draft > I was able to get Ted Ginn, Who not only will be our PR/KR <Which we suck very bad at> But will be our #2 WR after Rod retired. Ginn and Walker together is just a scary combo, and Cutler will be putting up monster numbers with those two on the team.

                    I also drafted Kareem Brown, he had 8.5 sacks this year, and 10 tackles for loss. and he's 6-5, 310. I feel we had a need at DT, and Brown right now is an upgrade to Myers.

                    All in all the forum mock for Denver has gone just amazingly well if you ask me. We drafted need, and were able to pick up solid veterans to make a super bowl run this year. not in 3 - 4 years.

                    But then again it is just a forum mock, and the first forum mock for starters. They don't become realistic untill you see what teams picked up what free agents and stuff like that. But for a January Mock, It's almost amazing if you ask me.

                    • personally, i think ginn is an awful prospect for denver. the only thing he really adds here, imo, is a KR, and given that every guy we've drafted for the position has bombed, i'm not real high on using a first rounder at the spot.

                      part of the problem stems from the fact that rice, even if acquired for a 5th, might have one season left. kerney's going to be 31 before the playoffs start. i like him coming in as a free agent, but i probably wouldn't trade picks for a guy who may not have a lot of great years left. grant, i'm sort of ambivalent about.

                      but regardless, the fact that we didn't fill our #1 need until the mid third round is odd. especially because it involved picking up two different DE's, a position i can see us needed perhaps one three down player at.

                      *shrug*

                      i'm not saying you did a terrible job, by any means, but i'm not sure i love the results.

                      • i dont want ginn anyways... i dont like his routes, he isnt that polished hands wise. and i am not convinced about his agility and fluidness... can he stop and cut? some moron is going to reach a herculean level on him

                        • Watching the Senior Bowl 1-on-1 linemen drills, I can say Adam Carriker looks very good, as does Okoye. Okoye doesn't lose often. And Carriker looks a lot leaner than I expected. He's also pretty athletic. I think he could be a solid 4-3 LE, as he can stop the run, and looked good rushing the passer. Okoye would obviously be a very good UT, only problem is at 287, how can he hold up against the run? Because that seemed to be a problem at times for us this year. Tank Tyler looked alright, he's really strong, but Ryan Kalil seemed to be able to control him well enough.

                          • okoye's weight doesn't bother me at his age. the thing with taking him, is that i think it will definitely be a couple of years before he really hits his full potential, so even if the weight's an issue initially, i think he'd still be stout enough in a rotation to justify the selection for the future.

                              • According to Cecil Lammey (Wright saw him there) who works for 950 the fan and is staff on footballguys.com stated the Broncos were heavily scouting defense; especially intrigued by Abiamiri out of ND.
                                Me and Keak Da Sneak were legendary.
