Specifically, I've been looking at the Broncos needs and wondering how this crop matches up with them. Here are some suggested topics for discussion -- (1.) WHAT ARE THE BRONCOS' POSITIONAL NEEDS? My answer: DT, LB, OT, S and WR. [DT] - My impression is that Dorsey (LSU) and Ellis (USC) are going to be long gone (obviously) by the 12th pick and it's too high for Balmer (UNC) at 12. There are a number of suitable picks in the 2nd and 3rd round and I'd be happy to see the Broncos pick a DT at that point. Some of those possibles; Laws (ND), Bryant(T A&M), Sims (Au), Moore (Md). I still see a high probability of the Jets' Robertson coming in a trade. [LB] - Rivers is possible at 12 but he's an OLB. Mayo's stock is rising but he's a stretch at 12 and should be long gone by their 2nd (11/42 overall). Some of the ILBs are late 1st/early 2nd material (Conner - PS, Goff - Vblt) and I see the Broncos using a pick on LB even if it's on an OLB, since there are number of 2nd rd. caliber athletes here. [OT] -- This looks like a likely, merely because there's number of OTs available at 12. I don't like the idea that much, even though LT is a crucial position. I'd just as soon see them trade up or down and use their 1st to fill DT or move down for more picks. This draft appears to have a number of lesser of lesser regarded prospects that what fit the Broncos needs (more is better, if they're early enough, i.e., 2-3rd). [WR] -- It's an area that has need, with Walker gone and Marshall's misdeeds. There are a number of fairly good players in the 2nd and below range that could be picked and I don't think they'll be using their 1st here, although the 2nd pick is appropriate if a number of the WRs drop lower. I don't expect them to push it, so they'll pick a WR if the highest player available is a WR. -- Not much in the first round, and they've addressed their needs somewhat in free agency. Whether they pick one high will depend on the draft. There's a lot available later, and it would hardly a surprise if they pick one late. CB is stronger in this draft. OTHER STRANGE POSSIBILITIES -- a RB, such as Mendenhall (Ill) or Stewert (Or), appear set to go around 12, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them pick one at 12. [DE] is quite possible, especially if they move down for more picks. Gholston would be a no-brainer at 12, and Merling (Clemson) and Harvey (Fl) are possible if they move down. [CB] Lots available, there are some that will be hard to ignore if they're the highest rated. I see at least one coming aboard, the question is how high. I wouldn't be surprised to see one fairly high because of the surplus here. [K] I see them using a late pick here; they need both. I don't know whether Mare will sign, which would take care of kicker, but I think they'd be willing to pick a punter with one of their 7s. Because of the Broncos position in the draft, it's very possible that they'll move to take advantage of the drafts' strength's a certain positions. The Broncos picks; (1) 12 (2) 42 (4) 108, 119 (5) 139, 148 (6) 183 (7) 220, 227 There's far more that I could say here, but it's a start. What's everyone else's opinion? I'm focused on the Broncos but I'd be willing to discuss other teams, too.
