  1. Are we watching the same guy? His instincts are far from top notch. Watch him against Baylor the first time around. He missed countless tackles being out of position and made terrible reads after snap. His speed is the only thing I see as a plus.
  2. Do you really want the Broncos paying a NT over 13M a year? I don’t. He won’t even play over 65ish percent of total snaps.
  3. I understand people are upset over Reader, but let’s see what the guarantees are first. 13.25 per is steep. Even for a guy like Reader, who was my #1 target for the Broncos. Disappointing yes, but not the end of the world. There are still quality football players left available. I find it interesting that Shelby Harris hasn’t been signed with this first wave of DL coming off the board so quickly. His market isn’t quite what he thought?
  4. I like this. No need to spend a lot of money in FA.
  5. I literally have only seen him play twice. Haven’t watched cut ups or anything other than the clip of him chase down an interception. So I am that guy who hasn’t done any research. Thanks for the info as I plan to get into the draft a little more. I am often skeptical of so much hype
  6. Man the Ruggs hype in the Denver media market is palpable. History says WR picks in the first round are often disappointing. The lack of productivity on the college level is a concern. What is the big draw other than the speed?
  7. A few free agents I like and have read the Broncos might be interested in. And a couple I just like. DJ Reader DL - Multiple reports have him linked to the Broncos and for good reason. His skill set really does mesh with what Fangio likes to do. His ability to play the 5tech on down to 1tech is a great fit on any defense. 5y 58M - 23M GTD Michael Brockers DL - Brockers is a beast. He is stout in the run game and is rarely injured. Not the best option but a good one if the price is right. He could compliment DreMont Jones if Jones isn’t ready for a 3 down duties 3y 27M - 8M GTD Rodney Gunter DL - Gunter is somewhat of an unknown because he played for the Cardinals. Good size at 6’5 and around 310 pounds. Does a good job in the run game and has come on as a pass rusher 7.5 sacks in last two seasons. Would be a great depth signing and not break the bank. 2y 8M - 3M GTD Prince Amukamara CB - This just makes a lot of sense. A trusted vet who won’t require any long term guarantees. Josh Norman set the market for aging corners this week. 2y 12M - 5.5M GTD + incentives. Jalen Mills CB - I have always liked Mills. He plays with an edge and is able to play inside or outside. He had a foot injury derail half his 2018 and part of 2019, but he seems to have healed up. It’s difficult to gauge what his market might be, but he will probably welcome a prove it deal to rehab his value on the market. Will be 26 in April, so youth is still on his side. 1y 3-5M - 500K to 1M GTD BJ Finney OL - This is another obvious one. A Munchak guy who could fill in or start if needed. A nice depth piece and only if McGovern is elsewhere. 2y 6M - 2.5M GTD
  8. Next year could garner even more Comp picks. CHJ , Shelby, Wolfe, McGovern, Parks will all see contracts worthy of a comp pick if/when they sign elsewhere this offseason. I don’t anticipate the Broncos making enough moves to match. They could be in line for a couple thirds next year.
  9. Don’t sleep on Josh Watson either. He was impressive at CSU. Was able to get sideline to sideline and make tackles. I actually like Watson more than Dineen. I don’t see the projection for Hollins at ILB working out. I would rather they use his speed and length outside. I am anxious to see the defense in action. Fangio is so adaptive to his players it’s hard to get a read what this going to look like. It makes it difficult to project a lot of these guys. Same can be said for the offense. I know where Scangarello comes from I’m just not sure what his tendencies are.
  10. CHJ should have never signed a five year deal. His agent should have never locked him into that contract. Elway nearly maxes out his cap and cash budget every year. A big deal for CHJ is not in the budget. He’s gonna hit UFA or be franchise tagged next year.
  11. Josh Watson from CSU is very intriguing to me. He had excellent production for the Rams and a great Pro Day. The limited video I found on him shows speed and instincts. I’m not sure why there wasn’t more draft buzz on this guy. Yet another team leader.
  12. I agree with both of your choices and I will add Noah Fant to that list as well.
  13. It’s because they always have like 10-12 picks in the first four rounds it seems. I do like most of your picks. Thornhill is one I’ve liked for awhile now. He can play all over. His ability to cover and tackle will serve him well in the NFL.
  14. Overall this is a good draft. I like Lock. In fact I like him a lot more than all of the QB ‘s from last year with Baker and Darnold being the exceptions. It would certainly be nice to sit him one year under Flacco. I just don’t think Elway is going to pull the trigger on it. Too much pressure to play him early. Then again if Flacco struggles it would be nice to move on without having to look for the next guy. Love the Risner pick. Not so sure he will be available at 41. I expect a run on Oline similar to last years draft with multiple guys being picked late first and early second, picks 15-40. Might need to trade up to secure one of the many good players in this draft. McLaurin is another great pick. Would compliment what the Broncos already have in the room. I’ve read he is a great blocker and we now know how fast he is. Looks like he is a smart guy too. Fits the Elway/Russell mold. Wren scares me, but his game flashes ability. The Broncos did their homework on him. It will be interesting to see if they trust him to be a pro and show up to work with consistent effort. That seems to be the issue to me. Kid has to grow up. I could nitpick the rest of your draft, but the truth is it’s a total crapshoot after the first 40-50 picks. After that it’s anyone’s guess as to where these guys would slot. I will say that I expect Sample to possibly go late day 2 to early day 3. He looked good at the Senior Bowl and despite his relatively average speed he can get open.
  15. Meh. Isabella will go to the Patriots in the second round. Book It!
