First off what a great season for our Denver Broncos!!! I said at the begining of the year that 8-8 would be great for us. Not only did we get to 8-8, but we also won the AFC West Championship!!! Not only that but we won a playoff game for the 1st time in 5 years!!! against the team that knocked us out of the playoffs 5 years ago!!! Way to go EFX. know lets build on that.
NFL Draft: Trade #25 to Miami for #41 and #72 (720pts-720). Miami moves up to ge Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M.
#41 Denver Selects---Jared Crick, DT, Nebraska (6'4" 285) Hurt last year, so his draft stock falls some, but I think we get a guy who can put pressure up the middle. SO and JR years he had 9.5 sacks each. I think I was with Suh and was without.
#57 Denver Selects---LaMicheal James, RB, Oregon (5'9" 185). A speedy guy that would put some fear in the D. Last year who did we have??? A 1 cut an d see you later kid. I know most are not going to like this pick, but I think to 2 biggest things we need is inside pressure on D and spped on the O. With the 1st 2 picks I've done that.
#72 Denver Selects---Josh Newman, CB, Coastal Carolina (6'1" 190). A big CB that is underrated. We need somebody at aome point to be able to replace Champ. I'm thorn between Newman and Boykins, but both could be had here.
#88 Denver Selects---Ryan Broyles, WR, Oklahoma (5'11" 187). Another possession receiver. Despite being hurt his last 4 college game he still avgeraged101 catches over his last 3 years in college . an average of 8.7/game. Plus he returns punts.
#120 Denver Selects---Ladarius Green, TE, Louisana-Laf. (6'6" 230).Reminds me of Shannon Sharpe. I know we drafted Thomas and Green last year and I have us resigning Fells, but I think even the Patriots would have liked to have another TE in the Super Bowl. This guy produced in college also with 8 of his 46 games going over 100 yards.
#129 Denver Selects---Joe Adams, WR, Arkansas (5'11" 180). Speed, Speed, Speed. This guy could replace Eddie Royal. 4 punt returns last year including 2 in the opener against Missouri State. Use him in the slot, in the back field as the returner. I like him more then his teammate Jarius Wright.
#152 Denver Selects---Ryan Miller, OT/OG, Colorado (6'8" 312). Keep this kid in Colorado. Great kid. PLays both guard and tackle. Both right and left. great backup until he can become more.
#216 Denver Selects---Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin (5'11" 201). There are other Qb's I like better in this draft, but Wilson has that "I'll prove you wrong" mentality like Drew Brees. A year or 2 on the practice squad will do him good and if ever the Rockies need an extra outfielder we can loan him to them.
That is what I would like to see. Let me know what you guy think. GO BRONCOS!!! looking for better next year so................10-6 until we aren't!
