In a quest to see who will be the number two pick (and possibly number 36, 46 and so on…) the Denver Broncos‘ three headed lion bronco consisting of general manager Brian Xanders, head coach John Fox and Vice President of football operations John Elway headed to Auburn, Alabama to see quarterback Cam Newton defensive tackle Nick Fairley‘s Pro Day.
That didn’t stop the trio from smoke screening critiquing Newton a little bit (okay done with the strike-through text, but if we don’t link to the Denver Post’s video, who will? Nor would it allow us to critique Lindsay Jones’ (an Emory graduate) classification of Auburn and Alabama as smaller colleges; we’re only kidding Lindsay).
Next up on the tour de force is a trip to College Station, Texas to attend TAMU aka Texas A&M’s Pro Day tomorrow to see linebacker Von Miller and then to Alabama’s Pro Day to see defensive tackle Marcell Dareus on Thursday (missing defensive end Da’Quan Bowers‘ Pro Day in Clemson (also on Thursday)). Before any conspiracies begin Patrick Peterson/LSU’s Pro Day is Monday, March 14th; the same day as notable perennial NFL funnels as Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Montana, and Newberry.
And if any of you local Colorado fans are thinking that the Broncos may be interested in one of the Colorado Buffalos or Colorado State Rams their Pro Days are also tomorrow, March 9th. Let us not get into the University of Wyoming, but Nebraska’s Pro Day is Thursday, March 10th.
