New, comments

Steve Atwater stated the case for the early rounds, while Andrew Mason did so for the later rounds.

Once again, court was in session for Orange and Blue 760.

For Friday’s case in 1st & 10 @ 10 court: Should John Elway and the Denver Broncos select a cornerback in rounds one-three or four-seven in the NFL Draft? Broncos legend Steve Atwater made the case for the early rounds; while Andrew Mason did so for the later rounds. Presiding over Friday’s case was the “honorable” (cough, cough) Ryan Edwards.

What makes this case even more interesting is some of the evidence that leaked earlier this week from Vic Fangio. It was then that he told potential jurors in this trial that Kareem Jackson spent most of his time at safety for the defense in Denver’s voluntary mini camp.

How will that information impact the trial?

For what it’s worth, I’m with Mason on this. Cornerback isn’t a “need” for the Broncos to use on an early round pick, but as I told the guys in my Friday segment, you always needs depth at that position.

What makes it even better and more exciting is the Draft is less than a week away. So the rumors, speculation and mocks will finally cease.

Bonus listen

I joined the guys on Friday’s show to talk about the Draft and the schedule, as well Rick Astley.
