Here is my OFFICIAL Broncos mock. Based on the McDaniels press conference yesterday, I hope to see some additional maneuvering, perhaps a trade of Scheffler and additional picks to get back into the second round with PHI. However, this mock is assuming no trades. I think that MHR will be surprised by the early pick of an offensive player, as McDanels has repeatedly emphasized that we will try to get better on the offensive side of the ball. I doubt that this will mean a QB, unless Sanchez falls to 12, which looks unlikely. I also doubt that this be an offensive lineman, b/c we are set at the tackle position, and  interior lineman is not an immediate need (although we need a replacement for Wiegmann and a good backup for Hamilton), plus there is not good value in the first round for these positions. I do not see us taking a WR in the first round barring a Crabtree fall to 12, in which case we should send in our card immediately. SO what does that leave? TE and RB. I know there are many who would rejoice at a selection of Knowshon. However, given McDaniel's tendency to favor a RB by committee, and given the amount of FA RBs we already have, a first round RB would seem a bit excessive to me. TE? This is perhaps one of our greatest areas of strength, and most have advocated taking a flier on Bear Pascoe in a later round. However, I think that if we are truly taking a BPA approach, Pettigrew has to be a legitimate option. Instead of reaching for a NT in a weak class, or taking an DE to OLB player that McDaniels has emphasized will be a project (even Tyson Jackson, who he said didn't play true 5-technique DE at LSU), much like many other OLBs on our roster, I think that taking a 5 star player who does not have bust risk is a better move. With that in mind, I think Pettigrew, and Cushing would be solid picks given Cushing's versatility and experience playing various positions.

12. Brian Cushing

18. Brandon Pettigrew

48. Jarron Gilbert (wanted to take Pat White here)

79. Jasper Brinkley (ILB depth)

84. Sammie Lee Hill

114. Mitch King

149. Jonathon Luigs

185. Terrance Taylor

225. PJ Hill

235. Ra'shonn Harris
