2011 Broncos Mock Draft Part 1: D-efense

Let me first start by predicting Dennis Allen to Denver. I would love this guy, and has learned under aggressive Gregg Williams. Would fit under Fox as an up-and-coming guy.


Trades: Orton to Arizona for 2nd, Arizona will get Skelton to learn the ropes and Whitsenhunt would trust his season (On hot seat) with a veteran.

D.J. Williams plus 6th to Buffalo for 3rd, Buffalo would save their ailing run defense by giving a 3rd for a constantly arrested talent.

Ryan Harris (Franchised) to Lions for 5th.  

Mario Haggan to Dolphins for 6th, Haggan would rotate with Tim Dobbins and would reunite with Mike Nolan.


After This We Would Have A:

1st Rounder

2nd Rounder

2nd Rounder

2nd Rounder

3rd Rounder

3rd Rounder

5th Rounder

6th Rounder

7th Rounder

Free Agency:

Richard Marshall: Back with Fox, we would aquire a physical beast.

DeAngelo Williams: A running back who would again thrive under Skipper and Magazu. Would push Moreno for the starting job, and would have the 3rd down back role


David Harris: A hard-hitting leader for the Jets. Strong and is a presence in the middle of a defense. Would exellent in a 4-3.


Roman Harper: Would reunite with Allen. A starter at SS. A huge hitter. (Watch link below)


Cuts: Champ Bailey (Contract), Daniel Graham, Ryan McBean, Jamaal Williams, Andre Goodman, Renaldo Hill, Brian Dawkins (Retirment), Daniel Coats, Russ Hochestein. (Anyone who isn't on depth chart is cut.)


 NFL Draft:

1st Round Pick: Da'Quan Bowers DE Clemson, My favorite prospect in the draft. A true athlete with a 275-285 frame of muscle. While being a stunning pass-rusher, he is an underrated run-stuffer, gathering up countless tackles for a loss. Dumervil is only fit for pass-situations especially with his injury. Ayers would take his side and Bowers to the other. 

Da'Quan Bowers


2nd Round Pick: Kyle Rudolph TE Notre Dame, Tebow had Hernandez as his big target back in college. Rudolph can bring that athletic TE back to Tebow. Would develop great chemistry with him.



2nd Round Pick: Jimmy Smith CB Colorado, A pure shutdown corner who would fill the Goodman void. He and Asomugha would make one of the finest if not the best CB tandems in the league.


Jimmy Smith Wide receiver John Chiles #7 of the Texas Longhorns makes a quick cut after catching a pass against cornerback Jimmy Smith #3 of the Colorado Buffaloes in the first quarter on October 10, 2009 at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas.


2nd Round Pick: Drake Nevis DT LSU, My favorite 2nd round prospect. He has the rare mix of size, athleticism, and speed. A rare talent to fall here and would be a premier 4-3 DT.



3rd Round Round Pick:  DeMarcus Love OT Arkansas, A pure football player with raw skill, and with Magazu coming to town, I have no doubt that he will develop into a Pro Bowl tackle. Would fill Ryan Harris's role as Tebow's blind side protector and could do it well. He is also very capable in the run game, and with Magazu, he could become extremely capable.


3rd Round Pick: Duenta Williams FS North Carolina, A ball-hawk safety with skills. His draft stock has fallen because of  an injury. Was once a first round pick. A value pick.


5th Round Pick: Casey Matthews ILB Oregon, Brother of Clay Matthews, Casey shows all the qualities you want in a football player. I would love him, and he completes our LB core for the future.



6th Round Pick: Greg McElroy QB Alabama, A developmental depth QB who I think has a bright future. Would be a good back-up for many years before he can really go for a starting job. McCoy learned from McDaniels how to groom and prepare young QBs in the NFL.



7th Round Pick: Chris Conte CB/SS Cal, Even though Conte was misused as a CB at Cal, he has the experience to develop into a back-up. His history with Thompson makes him great for the team. At SS though, he is a beast with 75+ tackles, two FFs and even an interception.



Depth Chart:

QB: Tebow, Quinn, McElroy

RB: Moreno, William, White, Ball (White goal line back)

3DRB: Williams, Ball

WR: Lloyd, Thomas, Royal, Gaffeney, Decker, Willis

TE: Rudolph, Gronkowski, Quinn (Quinn for edge blocking)

FB: Larsen, Gronkowski, Quinn

LT: Clady, Beadles, Clark

RG: Kuper, Daniels, Olsen

C: Walton, Olsen, Byers

LG: Beadles, Daniels, Olsen

RT: Love, Beadles, Clark

RDE: Bowers, Hunter, Veikune

DT: Nevis, Vickerson, Fields (Fields for run-only)

DT: Bannan, Vickerson, Bannan

LDE: Ayers, Dumervil(Dumervil for pass situations), Hunter

MLB: Mays, Woodyard, Hunter

ROLB: Matthews, Woodyard, Hunter

LOLB: Harris, Woodyard, Hunter

FS: Williams, McBath, McCarthy

CB: Marshall, Smith, Cox, Thompson, Conte

LS: Paxton, Kuper, Walton

K: Prater, Colquitt

P: Colquitt, Prater

UPDATE: People before you blast me for having Doom as situational, we would use him on 1st an 10+, 2nd and 5+, 3rd and 5+, and long 4th downs. We would also run a situational 3-4 with Fields, Bannan, and Nevis on d-line and Doom, Mays, Harris, and Ayers at LBs. He will still be used a lot.
