OLB, BRIAN CUSHING, USC

Denver Broncos

Round 1, Pick #12 overall

GM broncofan91

Details of the pick after the jump...

Playmaker, but will he make it onto the field?

From GM broncofan91:

At 6'3" 243 lbs, Brian Cushing has great size for a 3-4 linebacker. Mcdaniels' key word when talking about what he looks
for in a player is versatility. Cushing has the skill to play inside, outside or as a rush end. He's a ferocious
hitter with a nose for the ball and he knows how to wrap up for a sure tackle. Cushing also has the ability to
effectiveley drop back into coverage and is great in run support. There have been issues regarding his durability
however he finished the 2008season without missing a single game so my hope is that those issues are now behind him.
There are also rumors that he uses performance enhancers but until he tests positive(which he never has)these rumors
do not concern me.

Commish's Thoughts: Let the debate begin. Is this a safe pick? Does it do the best job of addressing need? I personally think we are talking about high risk/high upside with this pick, and it would make for some exciting Sundays in 2009.

Washington Redskins are up next. With the Broncos pick in, we have reached an expected highpoint, but there are still a lot of great players on the board. Where are they going to end up? Stay tuned in to find out!

The deadline for this pick is Noon MST, March 27th. As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid. To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
