More mock offseason work here...
Champ Bailey - A move to free safety could be in the long term future
Ryan Harris - when healthy he is our best road paver
Marcus Thomas - nice depth for the line NOT a starter though
Cullen Jenkins DE - 6'2" 305 end in a 3-4. This is the guy to get in a bidding war for, won't put up huge tackle totals, but Offensive lines double him a lot.
Barret Ruud ILB - could come cheap considering he was upset with the Bucs lack of extension offers in camp this past offseason. Veteran who plays out of place in a cover 2 heavy D.
On to the Draft:
Round 1) Patrick Peterson - This guy is Eric Berry special, start him across from Champ in 2011 with primary receiver responsibilities in 2012 as Champ moves to Free safety.
Round 2) Rahim Moore - I look at him as the top safety in the draft. Plays FS now but could play either spot in Denver.
Round 2) Jared Crick - Could start out of the gate and be part of a now deep defensive line rotation.
Round 2) Jerrell Powe - NT of the future, probably a reach in the 2nd but Denver has to get a long term NT solution.
Round 3) Chris Hairston - Backup offensive tackle to make sure that Beadles is the starter at LG beside Clady
Round 4) Currently no pick
Round 5 (See Orton trade)) Chris Carter - DE/OLB from Fresno State, a depth pick
Round 6) Shaun Chapas - FB depth and special teamer, could push Larsen to start
Round 7) Any corner willing to cover kicks.
Trying to produce some names that we haven't heard over and over before... So my 2011 depth chart looks a little like this:
FB: Spencer Larsen, Shaun Chapas
LT: Ryan Clady, Polombus
C: JD Walton, Russ Hochstein
RT: Ryan Harris, Chris Hairston
WR 2) Bay Bay Thomas, Jabar Gaffney
Slot) Eddie Royal
RDE) Kevin Vickerson
NT) Jamal Williams
LDE) Cullen Jenkins
Rotation guys - Bannan, Crick, Powe, Thomas, Mcbean
LOLB) Robert Ayers (I still believe in this guy), Mario Haggan
ILB 1) Barrett Ruud, Desmond Bishop
ILB 2) DJ Williams, Joe Mays (my take on Williams, he is usually tackling players 8 yards down field, I hear that a lot. But he tends to run them down, that says to me one of two things a) he is out of position b) he is making up for others missed responsibilities. The guy has been voted captain by the players a couple years now, players who routinely make mistakes don't have this happen, the guy is making up for our poor defensive line play)
ROLB) Doom, Chris Carter
CB 1) Champ Bailey
CB 2) Patrick Peterson
Nickel) Andre Goodman
depth guys) Perrish Cox and Squid
FS) Brian Dawkins (I've changed my mind, I want you back) Rahim Moore
SS) Darcel McBath, Rahim Moore
K) Matt Prater
KR/PR) Squid (think he'll be good here, I hope his fumble problems are over)
