Couple of questions for those of you on here that know much more than I do about the players in this years draft.
So there was a post discussing us really liking Von Miller but that our #2 would be too high to take him, but people had him going at 7 and seemed to be fine with that. Given everyone is expecting this new rookie contract issue to get hashed out in the new CBA, the #2 overall pick and the #7 overall pick wont have AS drastic a price difference as previous years correct? In that case why not take a player you like at #2 if hes projected at #7, its not that much of a reach imo.
Also I was thinking, and maybe this has been discussed in other posts, but shouldn't all bronco fans be praying, hoping, and wishing that Carolina takes a QB with their #1 pick. Gabbert or Newton, does not matter, but lets for example say that the panthers take Gabbert with the #1 pick. Conceivably many teams that need a QB drafting down in the 9-15 range would want our draft pick at #2 to take Newton before Buffalo can get to them at #3.
Basically what im saying is that given that so many teams need a QB, and being sandwiched between 2 teams that need a QB, wouldn't the above situation give us a lot of leverage and options with that pick? Pick up who we want if we dont like any of the deals offered, or trade down and pick up some extra picks. In my opinion that would be the ideal situation, but like I said I leave final commentary to those of you that know much more than I do.
