As the date draws nigh, we are all getting a better idea of what we want our Broncos to accomplish in the draft. I share my hopes below the fold. NOTE: they're basically identical to what I've stated before, so there should be no real surprises, but still...
- Swap our 1st round pick with Minnesota or Detroit to pick up a high third rounder.
- Trade single 5th and 7th round picks to the Jets for DT Dewayne Robertson.
Round 2 - DT (Pat Sims of Auburn or Trevor Laws of Notre Dame)
Round 3 - Steve Justice, OC, Wake Forrest
Round 4A - Dexter Jackson, WR/KR, Appalachian State
Round 4B - Durant Brooks, P, Georgia Tech
Round 5 - LB (Ezra Butler of Nevada or Jordan Dizon of Colorado)
Round 6 - Taylor Mehlaff, K, Wisconsin
Round 7 - S or ILB (beats me...)
The goals achieved with this haul are to fortify the lines and rebuild the special teams. I think it's realistic, need-oriented and value-based. Do you agree with that assesment? What do you think about the specific prospects mentioned and the overarching strategy? What are your hopes for this draft and what do you think the Broncos are actually thinking of doing? I look forward to your comments and hopefully this thread can be a "rest stop" of sorts where we all get our thoughts together after a couple of weeks of information gathering and debate. Cheers!
