DP - LJones looks at the Broncos' depth and needs for each position, although there is no accounting for UFAs.

DP - Terry Frei offers an odd take - he dislikes that McDaniels and Co. narrowed the draft pool down and selected players they had the most information about. Apparently Frei would prefer the Broncos take wild stabs at picks...

DP - Former Skins and Dolts G.M. Bobby Beathard understands the trade for CB Alphonso Smith's draft spot.

DP - More on the UFAs, including the departure from "high-character" guys with NT Chris Baker.

KCS - Former Chefs coach Frank Gansz passed away at the age of 70.

KCS - Adam Teicher says the Chefs didn't do enough to address their needs in the pass rush. Hmm, sound familiar? Maybe Pioli didn't love any of those guys either...

SDUT - Dolts LB Shaun Phillips was cited for misdemeanor battery after allegedly punching a security guard at a hotel bar.

NFL - Cincinnati released RB Chris Perry and is expected to let OT Levi Jones go as well.

CBS - In a familiar tune, Rob Rang loves the players Denver drafted but thinks they drafted for the wrong positions.

NFP - Matt Bowen offers his draft thoughts, and he also thinks Denver shouldn't have taken Moreno. But, he loves the player.

NFP - Bowen wonders if the selection of Moreno makes J.J. Arrington a candidate for release.

SI - Ross Tucker shares his draft evaluations, although he isn't yet ready to call the Broncos' draft a success or a failure.

NFP - Mike Lombardi was also confused by Denver's choices this weekend.

SI - Peter King also does not love the Broncos' draft, although I believe he is erroneous in stating that Denver only has 5 choices in next year's draft - I'm pretty sure they have 6 7 - Chicago's 1, Dallas' 5, plus their own 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7. (UPDATE 9AM EST Thanks to Bradley for the correction re: the Dallas pick)
