I talked about Bowers a while back - now it seems he is definitely moving down the board. I think he can impact the defense, and I think he's still worth talking about. Hopefully a CBA in place, and we trade Orton to the Vikings for #43.
Here's my take on the draft:
#2 - traded to Cowboys for #9, #40, and #71 - I haven't checked the charts, but this seems to be a good deal for both teams in a stacked defensive draft. Dallas wants Patrick Peterson and will trade up to get their man.
#9 - Denver selects Daquan Bowers DE- I know DT is a bigger need, but he could be a special pass rusher and we shouldn't pass him up
# 36 - Stephen Paea DT
#40 - Marvin Austin DT
#43 - Akeem Ayers S
#46 - Martez Wilson/Bruce Carter LB
# 67 - Marcus Cannon, OT (assuming Harris is gone)
#71 - Casey Matthews
Not going to bother with mocking any later rounds. However, this draft could really address Denver's defensive needs and move us forward into a new era of dominance. I still think we need a 3rd string QB and a backup RB, but we can address those in FA.....
