  • Anthony Spencer = Bert Berry

    Anthony Spencer should be the Broncos first round pick.

    Here's why.

    The Broncos have missed the presence of a serious pass rusher basically since they let Bert Berry walk. They had ample time to sign Berry before they let him test the market, and once tghey did they, it was over, someone was going to offer him big bucks.

    Spencer is almost a carbon copy of Berry.

    At 6'3"-265, Spencer will have the size necessary to start and play RDE for many years to come....and NO, like Berry, he is a true DE, not a 3-4 OLB prospect. Spencer himself said he has played DE his whole life, and does not want a change of position, and I agree. Some guys are what they are, and Spencer is a 4-3 DE, just what we need.

    He has a lightning fast first step to the QB, and I personally believe he will lead all rookies in sacks next year.

    He is also suprisingly tough against the run, making him more than just a pass-rush specialist, and should cement him for the Broncos first round pick.

    A legit pass rusher presence is still the No. 1 need of thre Broncos, and Anthony Spencer is our man.

    Plus, the kid rocks a Mohawk, so you gotta love that!

    Just for giggles, does anyone have the numbers from last years combine for the 40, the 3-cone, etc?

    I would like to see Spencer's numbers compared to Kamerion Wimbley, since they are almost exactly the same size.

    I think Spencer is more athletic than Berry, Spencer was considerd playing the OLB spot as well as DE, Berry couldnt pull it off at OLB.

    But still a nice comparison, i would love it if the Broncos drafted him in the first round.

      #21 is definitely the high end of the range spencer is projected in, but i'd be pretty pleased if we took him. . . i like him better than charles johnson, and think he's the best prospect of what i consider the second tier of ends (johnson, crowder, moses, abiamiri, etc). . . i think he may actually have better functional strength than berry, and could become a better run stopper. . . spencer is reported to be hard-working, smart and very coachable. . .


      the site i'm using has the following measurements:

      10 yard dash-- wimbley 1.60, spencer 1.64
      vertical jump-- wimbley 38.5", spencer 32.5"
      broad jump-- wimbley 10'9", spencer 9'4"
      shuttle-- wimbley 4.48, spencer 4.43
      3-cone-- wimbley 6.98, spencer 7.14
      bench press-- wimbley 24 reps, spencer 30 reps


      don't know if those are official, though. . .


      i don't think spencer is quite as fluid or athletic, but he's more compact and stout than wimbley. . . probably doesn't have quite the same ceiling, but he's still a good prospect. . .

          I didn't compare them, so how do those stats compare with the top DEs like JaMaal Anderson and Gaines Adams and Adam Carriker?

            I just picked a player like Wimbley for a point of reference for Spencer, since I seem to be getting the '#21 is too high for Spencer' comment over and over again, and Wimbley went #13 to Cleveland last year. It looks like they were pretty close overall, and both are about the same size at 6'3"-265. Wimbley a bit more athletic, and Spencer a bit stronger.

            Dogfish, thanks for the numbers.

              I disagree with the Hayward comparison; I think Berry is clearly the better player,
              both then and now...and I would still rather have John Lynch over Kenoy Kennedy anyday, even at his advanced age. Kennedy? Yuk.

              Initially, I was not a fan of Berry his first couple of years in Denver, but I have to give the guy credit, he really came on and had a great couple of years here before he left.

              He was the pure pass rush threat we lost and have not recoverd from.

              Enter Anthony Spencer...

                  Anthony Spencer is a talented pass rusher, but he isnt 21st pick material. If we dont take him at 21, he falls out of the first round. Trade down and get him were his value is appropriate for the pick. No need to reach, we can have a player such as Moses, or Abiamiri, with possibly more upside than him at 56 and have a luxury pick at 21.

                  If he is the pick you HAVE to trade down.

                    No, Spencer will not make it out of the first round, you can be assured of that.

                    He is a very real possibility to go to Baltimore as a replacement for Adalius Thomas, another player Spencer compares very well to.

                    You guys may not know or understand what Spencer is, but I can guarantee you the NFL scouts do.

                    If you think Spencer is not a first rounder, you will be suprised on Draft Day.

                    He is a first round lock. No question about it. It's just a question of where.

                      Scouts Inc has Spencer ranked 28th overall. NFLdraftscout.com has him ranked 29th overall. When you take into account team needs and the fact that he is ranked higher than 33rd overall he most definitely is worth the 21st pick. NFLdraftscout.com actually has him ranked higher than Jarvis Moss(31st). Scouts Inc has Moss ranked 21st overall. Split the difference and that makes Moss 26th overall . Moss physically is comparable to Jason Taylor. From what I've read about Spencer and Moss, I think I would be ok with either one at 21. Hopefully we can pick up another DE with the #56 pick such as Crowder, Moses, or Abiamiri. The pass rush is the biggest concern and we need to create as much quality competition for the job as possible.

                        i haven't seen enough of spencer to say he is worth(or not worth) the 21st pick, i have seen plenty of jarvis moss and i think he would be a great pick up for us at #21

                            Speaking from watching the guy in person for the past 4 years, he is a monster. as the OP states, Spencer is very quick off the line. He manhandled many of the players he went up against, causing much pressure on opposing QB--leading to hurried and erratic passes. If my memory serves me correctly, Spencer had the most tackles for losses of anyone in Div. 1A in 2006. I have no doubt opposing teams game-planned around Spencer, as most running plays went away from Spencer. He will be a great addition to whomever chooses him.

                              i'd rather have spencer than moss xjabillion. i want a guy that can pressure the qb AND stop the run. 93 tackles 10.5 sacks! I want those type stats in orange and blue.
