With the draft around the corner many football minds are focused on who their team will draft. I feel that we are “set” on offense provided that Mac and Moreno can come back from their injuries. Mac probably has 1-2 years left and Moreno appeared to have found “the magic” last year before going down. Denver will probably use a late round pick and hope to find that sleeper who can run with power, has soft hands and can pass block. A pipe dream maybe but some very good backs have been picked late provided a team can evaluate talent and does it’s homework.
Consequently, that leaves us with addressing our defensive needs. I think that our run defense is adequate considering who we have and who we picked up via free agency. I also think we will get good corner play with Champ and DRC. With that being said I think we need to improve our Pass rush (DE). We had a healthy number of sacks last year but the loss of Doom will hurt us. With the NFL becoming pass happy we need to be able to rush and apply pressure to the opposing QB to play deep into the playoffs. Our inability to cover the TE’s and the middle of the field-safety has been an Achilles Heel for some time. The new breed TE has had their way with our defense for several years now and must be addressed.
Which leads us to the 2013 draft. I am not going to write on whom I think we should pick-I have not done my homework yet and my football scouting knowledge is linited. But, I am interested in hearing what our readers think reference the top three needs of the team and how that translates to the draft. Does Denver draft DE, S, DT, CB, RB or ?????. Drafting this combo would with the areas of need. For those of you that have an opinion I am all ears. Thanks.
