I am not very good at doing the research for producing my own mock draft but I do start in about (when was the Superbowl?) looking at others work in this area. I have stated before in a previous post that in all the years I have been scouring the ends of the earth for everyone's opinion on who our Beloved Broncos will pick, I have never seen such a diverse accumulation of mock drafts. Even from the so called experts. Upon further evaluation of these mocks from some historically reputable sites, They even leave some guys off the 1st round that many others have in the top 10. (See DT COX) he seems to be the biggest mover and shaker along the boards. It is going to be very interesting to see just who falls down and who goes up. WE know for sure that the "Raider surprise" that usually changes the 1st round will not happen this year but someone will take their place I am sure.
One thing I have noticed and do not like very much is the players that are being Mocked to our AFC west rivals. There are some very good players for the Chiefs and chargers (yes I meant to use a non-capital letter and will until rivers does not play for them anymore). I don't know if any of you have been seeing this but I hope both teams do something stupid like our hated Raiders.
So after dissecting all the data I could find and with no consensus on any of the picks past #4 (which is still up in the air because I think someone will trade up to get into the top 5) I am going to give my Mock with 2 choices that I would be happy with at each position.
#25 DT Michael Brockers or CB Dre Kirkpatrick (Would prefer to trade back but don't think it will happen.)
(Not even sure either of those guys will be available but hey! got to take a chance right?)
#57 DTDerek Wolfe if we took Kirkpatrick CB Jenkins if we took Brockers
(Would take Miller here but think he will be long gone)
#87 QB Osweiler or RB James
#108 RB Turbin or RB Pead
#120 WR Marvin Jones
#137 Best Available LB
#188 Best available Special Teams player with potential to be a decent backup at any position.
So that is what I have come up with on this Draftivus Eve. I think we will all be surprised what the happenings and I don't know why but think some big things are going to happen that will affect us but not necessarily be us if you know what I mean.
