    He is the best play maker in the draft. Putting him in the backfield when the D has a nickel or dime on the field and you can run all over them. If the D gets big, split him out and get him in space. No one in the 4th round has the same amount of potential and he fits some off the biggest needs on this team.

    Edelmann was a 7th round pick who was a college QB, those skills can be found later in the draft.

    Would you use a 1st round pick on Reggie Bush (knowing what he was in the NFL) or Danny Woodhead? Cause those are the players that he's compared to. They're both fine players, I'm just not sure it's smart to use a first round pick on that player.

    Disagree. Players with that skill set are found later in the draft. The biggest single advantage he'd have is as an RB running patterns and catching passes out of the backfield. If he's in the slot and the defense was somehow caught in big personnel (unlikely because the defense makes substitutions based on the offensive personnel going on and off the field) then they'd move a safety down to cover him. For the defense to be in nickel and dime it's likely that the O is in spread, so now you've got 5 blockers v 6 or 7 guys, depending on defensive coverage calls.

    I get what you are saying and agree many guys have similar skill sets. Guess it comes down to how many years of development you feel you need on a guy. Edelman was not Edelman until after 4 years of honing his craft. Then there are football smarts, instincts, so on. At the end of the day the quetion may just be is a guy an impact year one or year 3-4...both have value.

    I agree with what you're seeing. Instant impact, McCaffrey would probably be the best.

    We have lots of things to fix to make another run and I am hopeful, but watching what the Zpatriots are doing gives me little hope. I mean they get Cooks and Ealy for basically nothing, sign Gilmore to go with Butler and they already have Edelman, Gronk, and Hogan. Why does anyone trade with these guys!!! Damn, could be another really long year of hearing how awesome the Pats are, forget they should have lost their last two SB if not for idiocy in coaching

    If Christian McCaffrey is available at #20 and Denver doesn't take him, he'll probably drop because the other teams will think there's something wrong with him.

    According to Matt Miller, the Broncos view Garrett Bolles as a day 1 left tackle.

    Denver Broncos: Offensive tackle remains the No. 1 need for the Broncos heading into the draft. I'm told by a coaching source that the team is very fond of Utah's Garett Bolles and views him as a Day 1 left tackle.

    Strange, he may have some upside, but it's fairly accepted he's a project - good footwork and general technique but lacking in strength. Did his combine push up his stock?

    He reminds me of our 1970 1st Round Draft Pick, Bobby Anderson. Except I think we took him with the 11th overall pick.

    Well everyone has their opinion. Mine, I like him. But I like McCaffrey too and think he will be special in this league. I would take the latter given the choice.

    I had the same thought...and Anderson and CMac may be the best two Colorado HS players ever.
