    Lol heavyweight boxing has become so pathetic.
  2. 2020 Mock Offseason V2

    Don’t have an issue with it. Love the Gibson pick late, Denver wants a back that can catch the ball out of the backfield (it’s why the brought in Riddick last year) Gibson is that guy who also has the size to run between the tackles....he reminds me a bit of Jaylen Samuels.
  3. Team Building the FUTURE is now!

    This past season Jones may have been, but Harris has been a top 5 CB for years and is arguably the best nickel CB in football (interestingly his down year coincided with him not getting near the work he typical does covering slot WRs). If Denver could play him in his previous role of bouncing between outside and nickel it wouldn’t be an issue, but they can’t because they don’t have the talent or depth on the outside and are paying Callahan (who has very little outside CB experience) to be the teams nickel CB. As @Royal_VT posted, Denver doesn’t need more nickel CBs, they need guys who are exclusively outside CBs. The team has their starting nickel in Callahan and their best outside CB is Bausby who is coming off a serious neck injury that left him without feeling in his extremities for 30 minutes. This is what makes Jones and some of these more exclusive outside CBs a must get for Denver this offseason.
  4. Team Building the FUTURE is now!

    I haven’t watched Byron Jones at all this year, but I think it’s justifiable to question his playmaking ability. 2 INTs in 5 years and he’s only been a full time CB over the last 2...that’s concerning and can’t be chalked up to teams just avoiding him. Chris Harris is a better CB than Jones, but Jones because of his age likely sets the record for CB salaries this offseason. That’s not saying Jones is garbage and he makes sense for Denver. Gives them a young #1 CB for the next 4-5 years who fits the system as a versatile former safety that plays with some physicality. Based off what I’ve read he shouldn’t be setting the market for CB salaries, but you’re probably get at worst a top 10-15 CB. That’s free agency though. Juwan James shouldn’t be the 3rd highest paid RT in history, but he is. James is a good player, not an elite one.
  5. 2020 College Prospects

    I guess I don’t see the risk in it as others. I think he should be moved there, regardless of being able to get Chaisson or any other OLB. Attaochu, Reed, Hollins proved capable enough last season. Further, it isn’t as cut and dry as a base 3/4 all the time. Moving Chubb to DE doesn’t mean he can never rush off the edge, Denver could get pretty creative. We’ll see if it happens. Denver doesn’t lose either way, IMO. Like I said Chubb’s too good a player with top notch effort to find success across the front 7.
  6. 2020 College Prospects

    If it fails move him back. It wouldn’t fail though. He’s too good a player. Even out of position at OLB he’s a quality player.
  7. 2020 College Prospects

    I think he’s fine as a 3/4 DE who can kick inside on passing downs. He has the length, strength, and size. I think he fits that profile far better than standing up and dropping into coverage and chasing RBs.
  8. 2020 College Prospects

    I think his physical tools/character/motor are that of a top 10 pick. However, his production is very concerning. Is he just raw and needing coached up or is there some other flaw that’s preventing him from consistently dominating? Have to say though, the 1st step, explosiveness, and bend that I’ve seen (and I haven’t watched much of him, so I could’ve missed some glaring deficiencies) to go along with what I’ve read with his character makes him a guy I would gamble on needing some coaching in technique to be elite.
  9. 2020 College Prospects

    Agreed, the mock I’ve been working on that I’ll post when I have time (hopefully this weekend) I have Denver taking Chaisson at #15 and moving Chubb to DE.
  10. 2020 College Prospects

    I wouldn’t leave Chaisson off those lists. His production isn’t there, but is a team captain and reportedly a high character guy with sky high potential. His explosiveness/bend are elite traits, he just hasn’t put it all together to be consistently dominant. I could see a scenario where Denver moves Chubb to 3/4 DE (to replace Harris/Wolfe) with the ability to kick him inside on passing downs. Even with a terrific rookie year, he’s out of place as a standup OLB and dropping in coverage at 6’4” 275+.
  11. 2020 College Prospects

    I definitely can. Some of that will depend on his 40 as I don’t think he has the homerun hitting speed as some others, but if he runs 4.60 or under it won’t raise any red flags. He’s the best receiving back in this draft and maybe the best receiving back to come out in years, which also makes him a very safe pick with that attribute in today’s NFL. He has excellent vision and make you miss ability in small spaces to pick up extra yards. I don’t know that he’s ever a 1200+ yard rusher, but I think he’s capable of putting up 1200-1500 all purpose yards if a team uses him correctly.
  12. 2020 College Prospects

    I would be thrilled to have him as I said he’s one of my favorite players in this draft. However, stepping back and taking how much I like him out of the equation, I don’t know that Denver should be spending a top 50 pick on him with Lindsay/Freeman on the roster for 2 more years. This team has bigger needs that can be addressed at #46 than RB, even with how much I like Edwards-Helaire.
  13. 2020 College Prospects

    Denver doesn’t need too and shouldn’t spend on a RB this high, but Edwards-Helaire is one of my favorite players in this draft. I hope he doesn’t go to KC.
  14. 2020 College Prospects

    I love your OL takes....but I hope you’re wrong in this instance, haha. I hope the team signs McGovern and either drafts an IOL top 80 or spends FA dollars on a RG. When you’re being stashed on the practice squad, inactive the majority of the year, trying to be stashed back on the practice squad, and only getting playing time due to injuries that’s the definition of scratching and clawing and that’s been Morris and Schlottmann over the last 2 years. Neither has done anything in two years in the NFL for anyone to view them as anything more than backups. Yes the coaches will decide, but there is absolutely nothing in their NFL history (even watching the few NFL games they’ve played in) as a fan to suggest Denver has their staring OC and RG on the roster with those 2. They’re interesting guys, mainly Morris with his explosiveness, but even then no one is mentioning his 31 inch arm length which is as concerning as is impressive his explosiveness and probably the reason he wasn’t drafted because it didn’t meet minimum NFL team requirements for the position. The guy is a t-rex by NFL standards.
  15. 2020 College Prospects

    In terms of his ability at Center I would agree, but he’s a very capable guard as well, one of PFFs highest graded run blockers at OG the year he primarily played there. I actually think his best fit is at RG, as opposed to OC, but he was moved there because Leary was coming back healthy and Denver had a hole there. OC is relatively new to him. He never started a game there in college having played both tackle spots and RG. McGovern is also exceptionally strong doing 33 reps on bench at the combine, maxes out his bench at over 500 pounds and owns the Missouri squat record at 690. He also happened to run a 5.11. At the end of the day, there are a lot of players that put up terrific numbers like Morris (and that includes McGovern) that suggest they should be quality players. McGovern has actually been a quality player over the last 2-3 years while Morris/Schlottmann have been scratching and clawing to make a team. I am rooting for them, but Elway and company can’t hang their hats on either of those 2 being starters.
  16. 2020 College Prospects

    Regardless, that’s a ballsy move that could end up a complete dumpster fire. We know McGovern is an NFL caliber OC and OG and a pretty solid one at that. Morris/Schlottmann are still UDFAs who’ve barely made 53 man rosters over the past 2 years. Now all of a sudden they’re our starting OC and RG? Like I said, ballsy move even if Elway and company really like em.
  17. Team Building the FUTURE is now!

    Agreed. I’d throw Ezra Cleveland in that mix as well.
  18. 2020 College Prospects

    Man, that is as risky a play as Schlottman. I hope both Morris and Schlottman pan out and the OC/RG jobs are filled with incredibly cheap players, but we’re talking about 2 undersized UDFAs barely capable of making teams last season as potential starters on the OL. It could be a huge coup if even 1 of them worked or a huge disaster if that’s what Denver is banking on. I obviously don’t know them and haven’t seen much of either outside of playing for Denver, but that would take some cajones to roll into the season even letting them compete against each other for 1 job, IMO.
  19. Broncos fire OC Rich Scangarello

    Same. I liked him. He had ups and downs, but overall I thought it was starting to click for him at the end of the season. I actually think he got a bit of a raw deal and while at first a lot of us thought this was all Fangio....I think it was equal parts Elway/Fangio. They don’t want to wait. Fangio is 61 and this is his only shot as an HC. Elway reportedly will remove himself soon if Denver isn’t competing this year or next. The 2 now have one of the best staffs in football, one of the youngest teams in football, and as much money/draft assets as any team in the league this offseason. I am fully expecting them to buy in on Drew Lock and be very aggressive this offseason trying to make this team capable of competing with/beating KC in the AFC West. Lofty goal, but I think that’s where the heads of this organization are at and that includes Ellis who has talked about a sale of the team. This is a team in somewhat of a perfect balance of built for the future with a young roster and QB with the ability to spend big in this FA to compete now.
  20. 2020 College Prospects

    Man I think Schlottman at OC would be risky. McGovern is probably going to get paid a bit more than he should, but he’s 26 and locks that position down for the next 4-5 years if re-signed. What is interesting is the majority of players Denver has let go in FA go on to never replicate the production they had in Denver. The only one off the top of my head that had left and had success is Trevathan. Matt Paradis was one of them. According to PFF Paradis had a grade of 63 while McGovern had a grade of 71.
  21. Team Building the FUTURE is now!

    I think a mid round OT would make some sense for this team as well. James has a history of injuries and I still don’t think Bolles can be 100% relied upon to get the job done even after ending the year playing better. In this deep OT class Denver in all likelihood could grab a 2nd round OT talent in the mid 3rd. Gives Denver excellent depth this year while possibly letting the team groom Bolles replacement at LT.
  22. Team Building the FUTURE is now!

    Was looking at Denver’s cap situation. It would appear that if Denver cuts Flacco and Leary they will have $80M in cap space. If I am reading it correctly NFL teams must spend around 95% of their cap each year. I am no salary guru, but if true I would expect Denver to be heavy hitters on the FA market with the ability to sign 4 players around $10M+ annually.
  23. Random Thoughts

    Was not expecting that at all. Mahomes is the best player in the game, but with how bad that OL had been, Mahomes holding the ball too long, SFs superior all around talent, and SFs overall control of that game, would’ve never expected KC to score 21 points in 6 minutes. I’ll also be honest. I can’t stand Kyle Shanahan. Was thrilled to see him lose especially because I wasn’t expecting it....actually lost money as I picked SF in this one because they were the more talented team....even losing money I’m still happy.
  24. Random Thoughts

    Yeah. SF handed this game to KC. SF talent wise was top to bottom the best team on the field, when you have the best team and lose, that’s typically at the fault of the coaches.
  25. Random Thoughts

    Looked almost simultaneous with Williams foot landing OB at the same time the nose of the ball crossed the goal line. No way it could’ve been overturned. This game was pathetic for 3 1/2 quarters and now is a nail biter.
