    Agreed. I wouldn't mind moving up 5 or 6 spots and adding an impact player or moving out of the first altogether, either to add more 2nd-3rd rounders or to pick up a #1 next year.

        • Ramonce Taylor?

          Drink heavily and hope to not get to upset with either who we picked, or who we could have picked that was still available when we picked.

          Unfortunately, a player several of us had talked about hoping he would go undrafted was Romonce Taylor, and he was just invited to the Combine. He will be taken on the second day (depending upon his combine workout so know more in a few weeks) and will be a special teams starter right away. I think he will be solid PR/KR player, something we could use in a Broncos uniform - especially if we could pick him up as an undrafted FA (Mike Bell) or in 6th round.

          I think this is the year the Broncos take one of the following three "character" issue guys:

          Brandon Meriweather - steal if made it to 3rd round
          Marcus Thomas - free fall to 4th/5th round -1st round talent?
          Romonce Taylor - combine will dictate


          What do you think about Ramonce Taylor? I know he has a shady history but overall I think this guy is a supreme talent. Where do you see him going in the draft?

          Nick H. from Champaign, Illinois

          Prior to his standout performances in not one but two post-season all-star games I said that there was little or no chance that Taylor would be drafted due to his well-documented off-the-field troubles. However, Taylor has really caught the eyes of scouts and even garnered an invite to the Scouting Combine so he could be selected late or at the very least be brought into an NFL camp and given an opportunity. Taylor doesn't have a lot of experience and what exactly his best role will be (Running back? 3rd down back? Wide receiver? Return man?) is still unknown but he has great speed and is a dynamic threat so that will give him a chance. In short Taylor has gone from off the radar to an interesting prospect.

            Meriweather is a 1st round talent, but with the 'character' knocks and deep pool of safeties available, he will probably fall. In terms of talent, he'd be a steal if we could pick him up in the 2nd round. As for his 'character', well, I'd prefer aggressive/fiery over lazy/disinterested any day of the week.

              Yeah, Branch will go way, way up there. He's a beast, even if he's not lightning quick. In a way, he's exactly what we need - an stud interior guy with the power to force other teams to double him, giving our DEs/LBs a chance to make plays.

              A lots of teams are looking for help on the DL, so we'll be lucky to get a shot at one of the legit 1st rounders at 21. I'm hoping the combine workouts will expand the pool a little by boosting the stock of guys like Jarvis Moss, Charles Johnson and Victor Abiamiri.

              If I had a choice, we'd get a blue chip DT in the first round and pick up a speedy rush DE in the 2nd or 3rd. However, without a major trade-up this simply won't happen.

              • I'm a Packer fan checking on speculation that is floating around the Packer boards. The speculation is that there will be some sort of Tatum Bell for DE KGB deal made- there may be more involved than that but that is the essence of the deal. Your comments

                • i don't buy it. KGB adds nothing to our defense that we don't already have.

                  Comment


                  • KGB is a pass-rush specialist who hasn't produced a whole lot over the last 3 years. I'd rather just go with Dumerville. Bell for a 3rd sounds good, though.

                      • exactly. i don't think he would beat out ekuban or lang, and dumervil played better last season. KGB and a decent draft pick wouldn't be ugly (i certainly wouldn't mind him competing for a rotation spot), but a straight up deal would be uncharacteristically poor value for denver.

                        • KGB and a conditional 3rd next year wouldn't be bad. I think he's got something left, but we really need everydown players on the line.

                          • Scott has us getting Johnson and Weddle in his newest mock. I don't think I can argue with that at all.
