I am going to change things up a bit here folks. I am going to draft based on the theory that Brandon Marshall remains a Bronco. He will sign a huge incentive based contract and he and McDaniels will hug on national television during the announcement.
With this in mind this is my draft scenario. Denver trades Tony Scheffler to Washington for a 5th round pick, works well for both of us since they could use Tony for more of what he is, a receiving TE and we don't have a 5th round pick as it stands.
now on to the draft, with the scenario playing out like I have it here our draft would look something like this. I will predict through round 5 since this is my very first attempt at a mock draft.
Round #1 Pick 10 (assuming we win the coin toss)
Round #2 Pick 45
Round #3 Pick 80
Round #4 Pick 111
Round #5 Pick 131
Ok, here it goes
Round #1 the Broncos take
Ht/Wt: 6-4/249 lbs
No surprise here, if McClain is available we have to take him IMO.
Round #2 the Broncos take
Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida
Not going to say much on this pick as I think it is pretty obvious that we need a new center and I think Pouncey has all the tools to be an elite center in the NFL. Some might say round 2 is a bit high to take a center. I disagree and think we take the best player for our needs and that player is Pouncey.
Round #3 the Broncos take
Jordan Shipley, WR, Texas
What can I say, I love this kid. He is a great slot receiver, has great hands and reminds me a lot of "Fast Eddie McCaffrey". Takes the licking and keeps on ticking.
Round #4 the Broncos take
George Selvie, DE, South Florida
Selvie may not be around this late but for fun I am going to say he is and we take him. He is 6'4" and 250 lbs and had a bit of a drop off in production this year so there is actually a chance he could fall to us here.
Round #5 the Broncos take
Jon Asamoah, OG, Illinois
Another pick that likely won't be there for us this late, but since this is as much of a wish list as a mock I am going to say he is and we take him. Stranger things have happened.
Well there it is folks, feel free to critique, bash, and laugh or whatever, I can take it. Short sweet and to the point. Look forward to your thoughts.
