    You were the man Jason, thanks for 15 great years. Greatest Broncos Special Teamer of All Time. What a way to go out.

    • Apparently CB is on our draft radar:

      Cornerback Alterraun Verner stood on his numbers from the combine but looked terrific in position drills. Several scouts in attendance claimed Verner’s ball skills were the best of any defensive back they’ve witnessed this year on the pro-day circuit. Verner now ranks towards the top of the second tier of cornerbacks who’ll be selected starting in round two. Verner has already has individual workouts with the Denver Broncos and Tampa Bay Bucs.

          I second that post

          I'm glad were owning up to "the" mistake and are thinking about taking a CB in the mid rounds.

          I'd also like to announce that I am officially turned off by the idea of Dez Bryant. I reallly questioned whether or not he had character issues, and hearing that he looked unmotivated at his pro-day was the first straw and the last straw for me. There's no way we draft another WR with character issues.But I bet if we actually drafted him, I'll gain my crush back. I know everybody's been saying that already, but until I say it, it's not true.

          Kidding. Seriously though, I'm not so sure I feel confident about Bryant Or McClain (I know, just cause of youtube) and I wish we would trade down 4-5 spots to get Iupati or hope that Berry falls to us which he wont.

          • I just really hope that someone falls to us that shouldnt (Clausen, or one of the LTs), and a team later in the first round really wants to trade spots with us to get them (and throw in a second rounder to get it done)

              Listening to Sirus earlier, it sounded like we were trying to get Spiller in for a visit as well.

              • I like Terrence Cody in the 2nd round either him or Cam Thomas from NC, who is dewarfed by Mount Cody but only by like 20 lbs.

                IDK why the Broncos don't trade Marshall and settle for the 14th pick, with all the calaamar and constant back and forth between said player and head coach, plus what are the chances they resign after all these trade rumors the past 2 offseasons.

                I dont live in Denver but inquiring minds want to know

                • Nothing says they won't take #14. I think very early in the process there were signs that this would end up going all the way to the draft before being resolved.

                  Part of the problem is that Brandon is a real pain in the ass in terms of the business side of things - he wants a boatload of money but his off-the-field antics are a big risk. Any team with half a brain will want security built in to the contract to protect them, which is going to require some rather delicate negotiation.

                    i get the BPA approach, but like, do we really need to pick rbs like the lions used to take wrs?
                    I'm not sure Spiller would be seen as a conventional back, more of a 3rd down / slot receiver / returner.

                    IMO, McD and X are looking at bringing in skill guys who would add a different dimension to the offense. Whether a power back or slot WR/returner, it's about expanding the variety of weapons at our disposal. McD likes to do a lot of substitution (look at the D last year) and it's a lot easier on offense where you get to snap the ball.

                    Is Spiller the guy? I have no idea. What I do know is that this team needs more playmakers / gamebreakers on both sides of the ball. If they reach at 11 on a position of need rather than taking the highest graded prospect (based on their scoring system), the old issue about not having enough talent on the team will continue into the forseeable future.

                    • As much as I want us to draft McClain, I have a feeling that ILB is not highly valued on our board. I have a feeling that a guy like Odrick may be the pick. I could envision the Broncos seeing him as the best 3-4 end in the draft.

                        LB's always slide. That's the way it is. Some guy gets grabbed early, then a bunch of supposed 1st rounders end up being taken in the 2nd-3rd range. The strong ILB spot in a 3-4 is a two-down thumper... hard to justify taking that guy early.

                        That being said, I think Sean Weatherspoon is a darkhorse for our first pick(whether we pick at 11 or elsewhere)... which would eventually result in D.J. Williams being traded to a 4-3 team where he could finally return to his natural position (WOLB).

                        I have a feeling that a guy like Odrick may be the pick. I could envision the Broncos seeing him as the best 3-4 end in the draft.
                        You and half of Broncomania. Scott has this guy pegged as a 2nd rounder for good reason - he's a nice prospect, but unless you get totally hyped on the positional value of a 5-tech, I don't see good value at 11.

                          Certainly not in round 1. At some point, though, the value of a sliding player begins to overwhelm the need factor.

                          there should be some pretty strong WR talent later on, and honestly, i'm not sure the offensive issue was playmakers (defense is an entirely different story).
                          Even if we keep Marshall, I'd say we'd be open to taking a slot guy and a power back at some point in the draft.

                          On defense, we don't need any more "solid but unspectacular" players. Positional value be damned - I don't care what level of defense they play (DL, LB or secondary), give me guys who are disruptive and can make the opposing offense pay for any errors.

                          our offense failed because orton couldn't challenge deep (and we refused to go beyond 10 or so yards)
                          ... which is particularly amusing/frustrating because that Patriot's passing attack we've adopted really relies on the deep threat to open things up.

                          further, if the aim is to actually involve royal to some degree, i think he'll give us a much more... dynamic (god i hate that word in this context) playmaker (i hate that word even more) than we had last year at the 2/slot spot.
                          I'm not sure Royal will turn out to be our slot guy. He doesn't strike me as the "read the coverage, find the hole" kind of player. I think he can do well on the outside.

                          further further, if i'm dead wrong about quinn and it turns out he really did know how to play the position, i think that largely (i'm assuming we address ol in the draft, early and often) solves our offensive issues.
                          It certainly helps. Not only his arm, but the ability to use his feet would be a vast improvement *if* he can learn to handle playing under pressure.

                          • Interesting info:

                            http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/n...ril-draft-buzz

                            If the Rams commit to Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford as their No. 1 pick in this year's draft, a deal for Brandon Marshall could soon be in the works. A source close to the Rams told me that the team still has strong interest in the Broncos wide receiver. And that interest may spiral up in the coming weeks if the team is serious about making Bradford their franchise quarterback.
                            Clemson wide receiver Jacoby Ford told me this week that he's worked out for the receivers coaches of the Denver Broncos and the Cleveland Browns.

                              Let me clarify that I am not advocating his selection, unless we trade down. With that said, I think you are severely underrating him. There is no way he escapes the first round. I've heard New England won't pass on him if he's still on the board at selection 22. Belichick and his disciples do place considerable value on 5-techs. Tyson Jackson, Ty Warren and Richard Seymour are proof of that.
