      Er... what?


      You guys make it sound like Nelson is a can't-miss, future Pro Bowl safety. If that's the case, he won't be around at #21. If he's available when we pick it means there's enough doubt about him that it won't be the end of the world if we draft another position.

      Our defensive line is our biggest need, in my and most others' opinions, and if the value between a saftey or a DL is comparable when we pick then we should go DL. We should only take a safety if there isn't close to equal value.

          You DO realize that all those guys you named are DEs, right?

          In fact all of them (except Courtney "Always Injured" Brown) are RDEs.

          Denver is letting Myers go via FA. Bates has concluded apparently they don't want him because his agent says there have been no talks and the word in the papers has been that the Broncos intend to let him go.

          Thus, the team is down to 3 DTs including Demetrin Veal (who weighs 288 lbs.) That's NOT at all the kind of player Bates wants in the middle. He likes big clogger DTs who are strong against the run and eat up blockers allowing the DEs to generate a pass-rush.

          Then the team is trying to cut Warren's salary without losing him to FA. That isn't going to be easy either.

          So, overall, the Broncos need all the DL they can reasonably get! They need at least 2 DTs (one to replace Myers and another to backup), one LDE (for when Courtney Brown goes on the disable list again).

          In an ordinary year they'd have no trouble getting a FA or two to fill in, but this year even mediocre FAs are getting just absurd contracts and Denver has little room under the cap. So, it's the draft or bust!

          That's a lot to get in one draft and they'd better start early!
