  1. 2019 Mock Draft Thread

    We disagree big time and you facts are pretty shaky. As Counselor has suggested though we can pick up the discussion on another thread. I'm sure the topic will come up again.
  2. 2019 Mock Draft Thread

    Thats a part of it, and not the largest part. We have one drafted player from 2011 (miller) and 2012 (Wolfe) on the roster. None from 2013. We're about to lose our last two from 2014, Paradis and Roby and the last from and the same for 2015 with Ray, Garcia and Heuermann. We probably won't even get a comp pick for any of these guys outside of maybe Paradis and Roby.. Thats 2 players that will still be on the roster from a 5 year draft period. One of 'em, Miller will cost us $25 mil each of the next two years, hardly a bargain. Over half our OL will be gone, our once vaunted secondary is anybodys guess. Our ILB's need help and we're losing alot of depth at OLB. D Line needs some depth badly. Our TE's have about 5 starts combined and our top WR's are rookies. So, tell me. How is it that we'd be okay if Lynch had worked out and turned into Aaron Rodgers? Poor drafts, inability to target and retain key personnel, overpaying for marginal vets, etc all play a huge part.
  3. Draft Prospects

    It's not that we don't adress it, we just miss there as often as we do at QB.

    Hopefully he realizes his draft approach from last year, BPA, is the only way to go. Our position now is directly related to the miserable draft classes we've had since 2011 with few exceptions and the amazing amount of 1st, 2nd and 3rd rd picks that were wasted.
  5. 2019 Mock Draft Thread

    Thought I'd attach a link to Spotrac for you mockers. It's a real eye opener. Take a look at the "Multi Year Summary" and our FA's. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/denver-broncos/yearly/cap/ Hard for me to see how QB will be high on our draft position list with all the holes and lack of depth on our roster. Especially when at present we've only got $20 m. cap space and don't have the ability to sign many FA's, not even our own.
  6. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    Quite simply, Case is under contract to us this year for $21m, $10m of which is guaranteed. I doubt very much if anyone would be willing to trade for Case and pay him $21m. More likely in a trade, we'd pick up the $10m guaranteed and the other team would pay him $11m.
  7. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    We'll have to disagree on this one.
  8. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    I disagree with trading out of the top 10. Thats where you can get truly elite talent. If Whites there and we don't grab him or a top CB we've missed the boat. I know I'd posted that our secondary wasn't top priority but I'm kinda changing my mind. Our cupboards gonna be pretty bare in a month. FA should tell us a lot about where our draft is heading.
  9. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    Good point, I also wouldn't be too surprised to see him take a later rd QB, knowing he's a year or two away. I was browsing the QB's the other day and guys like Thorsen caught my eye for that category. Big, strong armed, accurate but hasn't learned to play the game. I'll bet some of our posters could provide a few names that might fit. We've got some damn good college talent evaluators in this forum. I'd be interested in hearing from some of them.
  10. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    I really don't think the Bronco's spent much time looking at Foles. It's really just a risk/reward situation. Both QB's come with question marks. For Foles, never appearing in more than 11 games in a season is a biggie. With Joe, can he get past the nagging injuries that have hit him each of the last 4 years? Which QB is better is also subject to interpretation and point of view. There's no clear cut winner there. What it comes down to is money. We get Joe for 3 years at a very reasonable compensation rate of $21m per year average. No guarantees and we can cut him at any time. Foles is a different story. You're going to have to renegotiate his expiring contract and that won't be cheap. You'll also want to make a 4+ year commitment with lots of guaranteed bucks. Financially it's just a no brainer. It's a minor commitment, financially and roster wise for Joe. If he doesn't work out we cut him and move on. If Foles doesn't work out you're in cap hell for quite a while and tied to him as your long term starter.
  11. Let the Offseason Begin

    That really sucks! IMO thats a big mark in the "Idiot" column for Elway.
  12. Let the Offseason Begin

    What'd he offer Paradis? leary can be replaced much easier than Matt.
  13. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    Thats not true. YPA is a product of completion % and YPC. The stat you're looking for there is yards per completion. Joe has, up until the last 4 years, been right near the top in that category with around a 60% completion rate. You're right that his last 4 years, since Kubiak left and Trestman, then Mornhinweg, he's dropped in YPC and YPA but his completion rate has gone up. I'd say that has more to do with the OC's and playcalling than anything Joe was doing. Kinda putting a guy that loves the long ball into a dink and dunk offense. It should be fun to see what Scango... does with him. Our new OC likes to stretch the field.

    Ouch!
