Denver Broncos Select David Bruton, DB from Notre Dame

Yet another DB to add to the backfield, and it makes you wonder just how much confidence Denver has in the current crop.

Bruton's Scouting Report

Strengths: Ideal NFL size with reasonable bulk...terrific natural athlete...natural center fielder type...good long speed...above average zone coverage abilities...willing in run support...team leader...offers a lot of special teams value...attacks the ball at the highest point...

Weaknesses: Too stiff to handle man coverage...quickness in a short space is just adequate...needs to be less aggressive...ball skills are just marginal...needs to be nastier when attacking the run...

Overall: David Bruton is a better athlete than a football player at this point. He has good size and speed, but needs to add some bulk and player tougher when attacking the run. His ball skills are just average, and he struggles to matchup with the quickest receivers. He likely profiles best as a center field free safety, though he is likely be suited for a backup role initially. He does have the ability to be a contributor on special teams.

One thing is for sure, if any of these guys pan out sooner rather than later, Denver will have lots of options when it comes to structuring rosters, and more importantly, contracts.
