Denver Mock

This was much more difficult than I expected. This draft class appears to have the talent to produce starters from all of Denver’s picks. I think Denver with Elway in charge of football operations will seek to build primarily through the draft from this point forward vice breaking the bank on high priced free agent acquisitions.

That said, there are multiple improvements to be made and SOME free agent signings are necessary . There are also some players who should be dismissed/cut/waived/traded/etc. prior to the draft. I will include here a number of "cuts" equal to Denver’s free agent signings (3) + draft choices (8; following one MOCK trade) + undrafted rookie free agents who make the squad (2).

This is not a position for position replacement; just a list of men I see that Denver can afford to lose and a group that they would benefit from adding. Also it is just a mock, fantasy in other words. No one will agree on these moves, but I think most Bronco fans can see the improvement the team would reap were this fantasy to become a reality. Enjoy.

Free Agent Signings:

I think Denver will look at safety in free agency as this is one of the weaker positions in the coming draft in my opinion. I live in the D.C. area and having seen a lot of Redskins games from FedEx Field (including Denver’s 2009 loss) I think LaRon Landry would be a nice addition. Another “homer pick” would be to sign CB Ladarius Webb from Baltimore. A nice stabilizer/leader for the linebacking corps would be Barrett Ruud. These are not gargantuan contracts nor great newsmakers, but solid additions at positions of need.
