Mock Draft V. 3

The third installment in my series of mock drafts for the Broncos, which may be coming a bit more frequently from now on...... or not, I don't know what'll be going on this next week or so. I should be able to get up at least one or two more, though I don't in any way expect to get up to Sayre's level in mocking.

Before the jump, I'd like to say that I am of the opinion that if Tony Scheffler is traded, it will likely be on draft day where he would be used as a deal sweetener to move up in the draft. I also think Brandon Marshall will reamain with the team, at least for this year, thus slightly lessening the need for a wide receiver.

So without further ado, onto the mock draft...

TRADE ALERT The Denver Broncos have traded the 11th overall pick in the draft to the Tennessee Titans for the 16th and 77th overall picks in the draft. TRADE ALERT

With the 16th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select:

Maurkice Pouncey C Florida

Okay, this pick doesn't really need very much explaining, but this way we are picking him before the Steelers get a chance to.

With the 45th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select:

Toby Gerhart RB Stanford

Gerhart is a bit of a wild card in the draft this year. He could potentially go anywhere in the second or third round, and that is why I have him taken at this selection. If McDaniels really wants Gerhart, he might take him here just to ensure that he plays for the Broncos.

TRADE ALERT The Denver Broncos have traded TE Tony Scheffler and the 114th overall pick to the Cincinnati Bengals for the 54th and 191st overall picks in the draft. TRADE ALERT

With the 54th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select:

Sean Lee ILB Penn State

Lee would be the favorite to win the starting ILB job next to D.J. Williams. He would bring a high degree of leadership and competitiveness to the defense.

With the 77th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select:

John Jerry OG Mississippi

The type of big man (6' 6" 328) that could really help solidify the offensive line for years to come. If he really stepped up, we wouldn't have to worry about finding an o-line starter for years, barring a very serious injury.

With the 80th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select:

Eric Decker WR Minnesota

Based on all of the receivers that have been brought in for a visit, it would appear that we are in the market to draft at least one, maybe more depending on whether or not Marshall stays, and Decker could very well be the pick. He has great hands, and he could be an immediate threat in the passing game.

TRADE ALERT The Denver Broncos have traded the 183rd and 191st overall picks in the draft to the Houston Texans for the 150th overall pick in the draft. TRADE ALERT

With the 150th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select:

Sam Young OT Notre Dame

When Ryan Harris went down last year, it became apparent that depth at tackle was definitely needed. So why not bring in the 6' 8" Young, who was on the same line as Harris in 2006, to back him up?

With the 220th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select:

Adrian Tracy OLB William & Mary

Tracy would be making the transition from defensive end to outside linebacker, and with time he could find his way into the rotation.
