The Denver broncos trade 2014 second round for Jacksonville's 1st round pick in 2015 . John Elway always says he's building for the future and believes he's found some diamonds in the rough in this years draft class.The Denver broncos most likely will lose some stars after they return to the Super Bowl. 2 first round picks in 2015 put the broncos in perfect position. Jacksonville gave Safety Deon Buchanan a first round grade and can't pass on him at the bottom of the second. I betting the jaguars have another awful season and Denver makes hay!
1st Round PICK
Kyle Van Noy, MLB, BYU 6'3" 245lbs
With both of the Bronco's edge rushers coming off of injuries I believe Kyle Van Noy would be a great linebacker in our nickel packages. His twitchy athleticism and ability to drop in coverage is very appealing. Van Noy shows excellent play recognition, taking on blockers with the correct shoulder (allowing him to slide off would-be blockers and into ballcarriers easily) and is equally effective slipping into coverage or sliding past offensive linemen on his way toward a tackle behind the line of scrimmage. He's got great size to play middle on early downs and can slide to the nickel in passing situations as well as filling in for Ware or Miller because of injury or to stay fresh and also is a high impact player having 7 career ints, 19 pass break ups, 62 tackles for loss, and 26 sacks. The Broncos lose next years 2nd round pick to move up to the middle of the second in order to pick up BYUs playmaker Van Noy.
2nd round pick traded to the Jacksonville Jags for 2015 1st round pick
3rd Round Pick
Pierre Desier, CB, Lindenwood 6'1" 195lbs
Desier is a small school prospect that has always shown playmaking ability at corner recording 25 career interceptions. He's got ideal size and length. I believe number #18 will help polish his skills and get him up to speed with the pro game giving the broncos a nice corner to line up outside.
4th Round Pick
Jeff Janis, WR, Saginaw Valley, 6'3" 220lbs
Janis is a great athlete coming from a small school. He has sticky hands and runs crisp routes. Manning can only help improve his game and possibly mold him into deckers replacement. He come from a small school but has pro caliber speed running a 4.42 forty yard dash.
5th Round Pick
Antone Exum, FS, Virginia Tech, 6'1" 217lbs
Exum has great size at defensive back and plays physical. Has the ability to play corner or safety and has matched up against top talent in the SEC. In his junior season he had 5 ints along with 21 passes defended. Plays very physical and is good in man coverage. Could see him competing at Free Safety if Rahim Moore isn't ready and his contract is up this season.
6th Round Pick
Tyler Larsen, C, Utah 6'4" 315lbs
Tall, barrel-chested center with surprising mobility. Good initial quickness off the ball. Can turn and seal off defenders in the running game, creating effective lanes.Gets a quick punch on his opponent and slides well laterally to contain in pass protection. Good lateral agility and surprising straight-line speed to block at the second level, showing above average change of direction to adjust to moving targets. Also an effective short-yardage run blocker due to good leg drive and determination. Reliable in the shotgun and traditional snapping.
Tough and durable. Started the final 51 games of his collegiate career. Good bloodlines. Brother Cody played defensive tackle at Southern Utah and is now with the Baltimore Ravens. Bench press 225 36 times
7th Round Pick
Brock Coyle, MLB, Montana, 6'2" 245lbs
Brock is a very atheletic kid who is very fast and agile for his size. Could ran a 4.6 at his pro day and bench pressed 225lbs 25 times. He had great production in college with out standing work ethic. Has potential to be a star on special teams and add depth. His teammate Tripp is a great player but I think the broncos get value in the 7th with Montana Grizzlies Brock Coyle.
Undrafted free agent signing Erick Swoop
The broncos were one of the few teams to work out the university of Miami's Erick Swoope so there is a good chance they sign him after the draft to try to develop him into a redzone target at 6'5" 220lbs it'll be interesting to see what manning can do with this kids athletic ability.
