AAA's Attempt at a Mock

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Well it's a slow Thursday at work so I figured I'd throw together a quick mock.  Please note, I don't follow college prospects at in-depthly as many of you do, so please be kind. 

 

1.15: Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama - The writing is on the wall that WR is likely to be a the pick. Is it what I would do? No. But I understand why Elway & Co. are likely to go this way. 

2.46: Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah - Physical CB who is a good tackler and strong in run support. 

Trade: Denver trades #83 and #118 to Miami for #70

3.70: Lucas Niang, OT, TCU - Developmental OT prospect with good athleticism and measurables who needs some refinement. 

3.77: Nick Harris, IOL, Washington - Experienced, multi-year starter who projects best at center, will compete for playing time and maybe even a starting job right away. 

3.95: Troy Dye, LB, Oregon - Speedy, instinctive LB who can play in passing situations against TEs/RBs, something this team has been lacking since Danny T left. 

Trade: Denver trades #178 and a 2021 5th round pick to Seattle for #133

4.133: Derrek Tuszka, EDGE, North Dakota State - tested wonderfully at the combine, where we reportedly with him, developmental player at a position Elway values highly. 

6.181: David Asiasi, TE, UCLA - TE who can play all three downs but needs refinement, will grow into a role in the seasons ahead as the cupboard at TE is bare after Noah Fant. 

Trade: Denver trades #252 and #254 to Carolina for #221

7.221: Josiah Coatney, DL, Ole Miss - another player with whom we met; productive with a good motor and Kolar can work on refining the raw areas of his game.

 

Summary: I think the team has been pretty open about what positions they will target in the draft. Our needs are pretty obvious and I think they will look for prospects like they have in recent years that were productive, experienced players from upper-echelon college programs. We make a couple trades here and there to move up in a few rounds and come away with eight players, which is about what I expect from our 10 picks. As I said, be kind.

I’d be thrilled.  Ruggs is such a good fit for this team.  I also really like Jaylon Johnson and think he makes a lot of sense for Denver if there round 2.  Niang at 70 is a good pick as well.

This is a fantastic mock. If Elway pulls this off I’ll be one happy Scotsman come draft weekend.

Love the positions addressed and the rounds their addressed in.


Like the players. I have other personal preferences at each spot but would not be upset with this draft

I'm kinda disappointed there isn't a CSU player there.

Not bad but......i think Lamb , Jeudy and Ruggs are all gone after the 13th pick. If Denver want  one of the 3........trade up is a need.

I prefer a trade down if all 3 are gone.

Denver trade 15th and 77th and next year 4th rd (1255+ 4th 2021) for Jax 20th and 42th (1330)

You have an extra 2rd. 

3 picks in the 50's. You can add a WR/CB/OT 

WR=Mims /Jefferson/Higgins/Reagor/Hamler/Shenault

CB=Diggs/Gladney/Terrell/Johnson

OT=Jones/Cleveland/Ruiz/Biadasz/Wilson/Wanoghoe/Cushenberry

I would be very much down with this draft Dan. Well done. Love the first 5 picks especially. A lot of early contribution there.

Would be very happy with this mock although I don't think Ruggs lasts until 15.  Not sure if Nick Harris has the bulk/strength to hold up, I watched Senior Bowl highlights and Ive never seen a guy get pushed around like he was during drills.  Overall I like it.

Love it, but do the Broncos need another TE?  I mean Vannett is going to be All-Pro next year.

Five TE’s already on the roster, three legit guys, and two still with potential to become contributors. That said, grabbing a practice squad guy in the 6th is never a bad play.

I agree. I’m partial to the idea of grabbing Jared Pinkney (Vandy) in the 7th if he’s there. He reminds me of house. Bigger TE, primarily a blocker, lacks the speed to exploit the seems, but solid hands and has a nose for the soft spot in the zone. I think he could develop into a solid #2 TE should injuries continue to derail the careers of Butt and Fumagalli.

after his junior year he was talked about as a day two pick but a downgrade in QB (ironically enough from Kyle Shumur, Pat’s son) led to a subpar season.

LOVE the Tuszka pick, even if I think the 4th round is quite high for him. Comes from the gold standard of FBS programs, and he did test really well, but a pass rusher with crazy short arms won’t be in high demand, in my opinion.

If we get Ruggs, I'm lit

Is this good or bad? Personally I'd prefer Jeudy over Ruggs.

I don't know much of anything when it comes to this years players. However your top two picks are exactly what we need. And since Jaylon is my boy I will sing that boys praises until you stuff your ears with gumdrops.
