A wishful thinking unrealistic draft strategy.

 

 

I don’t have the knowledge to try and project the draft picks past the middle of the 1st round. But I do have an idea what I feel Denver needs and what range of players will go where. I did this post mostly so I could further my knowledge of the player in this year’s draft, it just for fun and I don’t expect anything like it to happen. I know that consummating all 5 of these trades would be a miracle but there are players that teams might fall in love with or panic over missing. I can see teams moving up for Newton, Gabbert, Peterson, Dareus, Miller, Quinn, Green, Farley, Watt, J. Jones, Amukamara, Bowers, and Locker. The key to my strategy is to get the one player I  like the most(Kerrigan) and acquire extra picks in the process.

1-14(14) DE R. Kerrigan – In my opinion the best DL pick in the draft, others may have a slightly higher ceiling but his floor is the highest. His weight at his pro day was 274, he added 7 pounds since the combine, and could easily go to 285 without losing any quickness. His combine numbers compare favorably with any other DE. His field drills showed he is a border line ¾ OLB, while this is not important to Denver, it demonstrates value in zone blitz pass drops. If you look at his 4 year college production it easily surpasses any other DE in the draft, plus he was an Academic all American. He has the strength to move inside on passing downs (31 bench reps). Kerrigan is the one guy I want the most out of this year’s draft. Before you disagree check out his combine and college production.

 

1-28(28) Best DT left. Possible pick are. M. Austin, S. Paea, M. Wilkerson, C. Liuget and  P. Taylor.

2-3(35) Best DT left. Possible pick are. M. Austin, S. Paea, M. Wilkerson, C. Liuget, P. Taylor, D. Nevis, J. Jenkins and J. Casey.

  

2-4(36) take the Best CB, FS or maybe TE K. Rudolph.

 

3-2(66), 3-3(67), 3-9(73), 3-14(78) in the 3rd round I want SLB C. McCarthy, MLB C. Mathews, a RB and a RT. We could also use some of the 3rd round picks in combination with our remaining low round pick to further manipulate this year’s draft or gain more picks next year.
