Good morning, Broncos Country!

The guys over at 1st and 10 @ 10 played an interesting - and fun - game yesterday during their show. Each host had to choose four free agent players from Pro Football Talk’s Top 100 free agents in 2019 that they would want for the Broncos.

And to add more fun, they let Broncos Twitter vote on whose four free agent picks were the best.

So I thought that would be a fun exercise here at MHR.

But we will go one step better and go to seven (you know why) positions of need and then fill them each with one player from either free agency or the draft, with a max of four free agents.

For the sake of not having to do math this morning (amirite, Whorfin???) you are not required to necessarily keep it under the cap since there are a lot of unknowns right now when it comes to our final cap space and the value of many of the free agents (sorry, Ozark!) But you can bet the free market - also known as the comments section - will let you and I know if we are way off base ... or have misspelled a word (amirite, Tim???)

I’ll start us off; you can weigh in with how wrong you think it is, but then you are required to offer your own!

Linebacker: LSU’s Devin White, first-round draft pick

Quarterback: Duke’s Daniel Jones, second-round pick (because, you know, in case Joe Flacco isn’t all that)

Cornerback: ColtsPierre Desir

Tight end: Texas A&M’s Jace Sternberger, third-round draft pick

Edge rusher: ChiefsDee Ford (that’s right, I’m predicting John Elway will poach him from our AFC West rival)

Safety: BearsAdrian Amos

Offensive line: Re-sign Matt Paradis

So how did I do? Give me a grade...and then tell me what you would do:
