    2nd= Marvin Austin, DT
    Mikel Leshmore, RB or Drake Nevis, DT
    3rd= Jaiquawn Jarrett, SS

    that's not so crazy kid!

    Paea is the only one I'd add but I'm guessing he'll be gone by the 2nd

  • flbronc

    paea may well be there at our first second rounder…. especially if there is a run on qb's- which i think more likely to happen if the lockout doesnt end before the draft. if 4+ qbs go in round one, it makes quality defensive talent fall to the second round. newton and gabbert are first round locks, but i think locker, mallet and ponder all have potential to go late first. add in a couple of first rounders for wr's, several more for ol's and one maybe two rb's and you are at almost half the first round as offensive players. that gives us the tail end of the top 20 or so defensive prospects to look at in the second. the best thing we can have happen is a good run on offensive talent, that makes paea or other def talent graded at first round value available to us.

    Ahh…the Vault.

    Thanks, guy.

  • flbronc

    kind of interesting… the kiper & mcshay mock have us taking the same players in rounds one and two. they just have the picks flip flopped in round two- mcshay thinks we take rudolph with our pick and moore with miami's and kiper has moore first and rudolph second.

    i know we need te help, but if mccoy is truly calling the plays and keeping much of our offense from last year, why do we need one that high?

    This JOHN ELWAY GUY is beginning to piss me off with this QB bull****! Tebow is our guy John, what don't you get? You're beginning to be as lousy as your son jack elway!

  • mattDIZ

    Who is this John Elway guy anyway???

  • anthony33

    I think Elway is looking at QB's not to replace Tebow, but to be his back up. I can see Orton being traded and Quinn fighting it out with a 3rd round or later QB.

    It would be absurd to draft one with our first three picks.

    Ha ha…nice try, Al.
