    I'd think a move up a few spots is definitely possible as you indicate. Getting to 12 would cost a 3rd or so. I can't imagine all 3 WR's being gone by 12 if thats our target.

    I love the scenario but I just don't see him falling out of the top 10.

    @broncos_fan _from _uk and I talked about that very thing a couple of months ago. Thomas gives you an immediate starter at RG and a swing OT, our two largest OL needs. I think it's a great idea. At 15 he'd be almost a lock to be BPA.

    I'd think center is pretty low priority. We're in dire need of a swing OT though.
  5. Free Agent Frenzy

    Yeah, I know. Doesn't make me feel better though. To me , once a guy does give that Hometown discount, Wolfe and CHJ were big ones, the team should step up a bit and give a "loyalty bonus" on the final contract. With Wolfe and CHJ it was a one way street. Granted though, I'm pretty old school.
  6. Free Agent Frenzy

    IMO letting Wolfe go for $6 mil a year was a very bad idea. Felt the same about CHJ. How do you ever convince any one else to extend on a "team friendly / home town discount" if you don't step up when it's your turn. Just my opinion. No sense in arguing really, I really think that was pretty shoddy management and will cost us dearly in the long term.

    Pretty good analysis.
  8. Free Agent Frenzy

    Couldn't agree more on Wolfe. Sign him to a decent contract and let him retire here. DO NOT lowball that guy and count pennies.
  9. Free Agent Frenzy

    I never said they wouldn't start him, of course they will. I'm just not sure whether it's center or RG. Thats why I said I'm curious how it shakes out. Do you know who will eventually line up where? I sure don't.
  10. Free Agent Frenzy

    I'm just curious to see how it shakes out. Morris, Schlottman and Glasgow can play all three IOL positions. Morris and Schlottman being ex TCU centers but Schlottman now with 5 games starting at RG. I think you're right, gut feel is that Glasgow starts at RG, Morris or Schlottman at center and the one left over as our IOL backup.Better position than we've been in in some time.
  11. Free Agent Frenzy

    I'm pretty sure our starting center is on the roster, possibly/probably even our RG.
  12. Random Thoughts

    So, as a retired engineer/math guy this whole thing is a bit fascinating. Statistically it's absolutely insignificant. The numbers of dead and infected are so small it's statistically irrelevant. Looking at it mathematically though, the expansion/ contagion rate is presently at about 32% in the US daily. That's nuts! That kind of daily rate in the stock market would turn $1000 into $1,000,000 in about 25 days. It'll do the same with this virus unless something changes the 32%. I think thats what Trumps trying to do. Anyway, never seen anything like this in my lifetime. Should be a learning experience.
  13. Team Building the FUTURE is now!

    Nah, he's pretty solid bud. Looks to me like a big upgrade at RG. McGovern couldn't move well enough to play there. As a RG, Schlottmans better but can't anchor real well. Anyway, I'm pretty pleased with the hire. Now just get us a swing OT that can replace James next year. That'll be the draft.
  14. Anybody see any film on this kid?
  15. Just my opinion but I think our first OL selection will be a 2nd tier OT, one that has the ability to play either side but just needs coaching, NFL weightroom for a year or so. I think we're done on the IOL. Morris or Schlottman will start at center, the other will be the best IOL reserve we've had for a decade.
