A New 3 Round Mock Draft

Image Detail


Is everyone as excited as I am for 8 PM Eastern Time to arrive? Here lately I've been breathing, eating, drinking, and sleeping everything that is Mile High, and it got me thinking about who could be in next years harvest of Broncos. So, without boring you anymore.... allow me to give you my first mock of the year. For those of you who detest mocks this early.... sorry.... my kids are driving me nuts and I'm bored. All work and no play makes Jeremy a dull boy. Don't just look at the pick.... look over the alternates as well. I mainly want to see who's going to possibly be available when we're on the clock.

Let's jump into it!

Round 1, Pick 32:

Lamar Miller - RB, Miami Hurricanes (5-11 ~ 212 lbs.)

I don't think anyone can argue this won't be the pick. We all know how much John Fox loves his multi-back rotation, and in Carolina, he rolled with two feature backs. McGahee could then move to the grinder / closer role, and Miller could be our big play, homerun threat. What's not to love about Backs with decent size and speed to boot. A Mike Backer is a distinct possibility here, and I believe we have the locker room / coaching staff to get the most out of Burfict. Would it shock any of you, given Fox's past, that a RB or MLB could be the pick here?

Alternates (Mark Barron, SS, Alabama ~ Devon Still, DE/DT, Penn St. ~ Vontaze Burfict, MLB, Arizona St. ~ Alfonso Dennard, CB, Nebraska)

Round 2, Pick 64:

Jerel Worthy - DT, Michigan St. Spartans (6-3 ~ 305 lbs.)

I know a lot of you want a CB here (or earlier), but I think we can get by next year with Champ/Goodman/Harris, a healthy Syd'Quan Thompson & Cassius Vaughn, then a free agent / late rounder. Jerel Worthy is the pick here because he can play the run and pass well. This pick would complete our D-Line (assuming either Ayers, Beal, or a draft pick flashes something and offers us a 3rd pass rush option). Worthy could come at them from the gut (where Brady gets confused) - flushing them into the awaiting arms of VonDoom, or vise versa. This is a win-win. Have you guys noticed some of the runs up the middle we've been giving up? That... has to... stop!!! We can't rely on Dawk as much anymore, sadly but inevitably.

Alternates (Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina ~ Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami ~ Alameda Ta'amu, DT, Washington ~ Ryan Miller, OG, Colorado).

Round 3, Pick 96:

Jared Crick - DT/DE, Nebraska Cornhuskers (6-6, 285 lbs.)

I would die and go to hog heaven if we could pick Crick here. He missed the majority of this year to a torn pec, so he will fall some, and if he does, there's no way EFX could pass with their philosophy of best player available. Crick can play the run.... will gain weight in the pros.... and can relentlessy rush the passer. I'm sorry if any of you think I'm going too D-Line heavy, but that's how I've been taught a defense should be built.... from the inside out. Big men early and often. We have the edge players on D to contend with anyone, now let's solidify the interior. I think it's a must that we come away from this draft with a DT and a MLB in pocket.

Alternates (Bruce Irvin, DE/Situational Pass Rusher, West Virginia ~ Bernard Pierce, RB, Temple ~ Winston Guy, SS, Kentucky ~ Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, that's it.... that's all. Tell me what you think. Oh, and just one more thing.... GO BRONCOS!!!
