On Patrick Peterson he said: "He’s got a little stiffness to him, but ultimately he might be best served as a safety. I think he can play corner, but down the road a little bit, because he’s a big, strong tough guy that can run, I think he might be an all pro safety. So Patrick Peterson is certainly a guy that could be considered in the top 10. But I think it has to fit the type of team. Somebody that’s going to let him get up, press, be physical at the line of scrimmage. That’s where he’ll be the best player he can be." On the uncertainty surrounding free agency, he said: "So the best thing you can do is take a step back and say we’re going to do what we always do. We’re going to draft the best football players that fit our scheme because we can’t worry about things we can’t control right now." And on whether the Broncos should pick Nick Fairley or Da’Quan Bowers at #2: "I mean, you just mentioned two incredibly talented guys that each have boom or bust potential. And Da’Quan Bowers is a one‑year wonder. As far as Nick Fairley is concerned, I would also throw in Marcell Dareus’s name. I think Nick Fairley might have a tiny bit more upside than Dareus, but I think Dareus has a higher floor. You kind of know what you’re getting with Dareus."
