  • Yahoo Rumors

    Illinois running back Rashard Mendenhall, projected as a first-round pick, and Boston College offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus, who is expected to go late in the first or early in the second, visited with the Denver Broncos coaches and officials Wednesday.

    The 6-foot-7, 314-pound Cherilus was a right tackle until he switched to left tackle in his senior season. Which is nothing compared to the adjustment he made from growing up playing soccer in Haiti to moving to the United States at age 14 and playing football for the first time as a high school sophomore.

    The Broncos are considering taking Mendenhall, Oregon running back Jonathan Stewart, Miami safety Kenny Phillips, North Carolina defensive tackle Kentwan Balmer, receivers DeSean Jackson of Cal and Oklahoma's Malcolm Kelly or any number of offensive tackles, including Cherilus, with their first-round draft pick April 26.
    Now i know its just a rumor, but it would be cool to have Mendenhall and/or Phillips

      Sounds like we may take a football player.

        Thats some rumor, I also hear that we were going to draft Football player A, Football player B, Football player C, Football player D, and the list goes on and on. Why not throw in Jerod Mayo, Dan Connor, Keith Rivers, Limas Sweed, and the rest of the mid to late 1st round possibilities.

              If we draft Kenny Phillips. The reason being...Lynch can play closer to the line of scrimmage where he's better and because he's older and slower. Phillips is smart and fast enough to play both halfs of the field with ease. He can play TE's in man with no problem at all. So if he's not playing the TE as Boss clearly can himself then that would give him the freedom to roam the field and make all kinds of plays (ala Ed Reed, Bob Sanders). He is a pure playmaker and would make up for Dre or Champ getting beat if that was to happen (notice where was the safety in the GB game even tho it was Bly fought for getting beat). He would be great for the future with tutoring from Lynch, one of the all-time greats. We already missed out on one of the good young safeties in Reggie Nelson last year but Kenny is even better because he can play close to the line and will lay the big hit too! Trust me the guy is that good and would be even better with our secondary. He would also allow either side to play the zones or the flats for easier picks and the corners can have better awareness and coverage because he can play the ball on WR's after they are released (Giants, Colts, Ravens, Bucs). The reason I mentioned the Giants is because although alot of credit was given the D-line, there Safties played great too. They allowed the corners to play underneath for the short routes that kept NE rolling and able to set teams up for the deep balls. If you watch the SB or the last game of the season that the Giants should have won. You'll see that the safties were instrumental in those games. He can play WR's man to man also for those who have doubts about Fox and Paymah. lol. Kenny Phillips is clearly the best safety in the draft and the best possible pick that we can make to better this team. I know we need o-linemen and d-linemen but the offense isn't struggling as much as the defense and Kenny would solve alot of problems as far as the defense goes. We can find a quality D or O linemen in later rounds but Kenny is one of a kind and we will not find anyone close to him trying to draft a safety from this thin group in the later rounds. Also, he would keep the long list of great safeties of Broncos tradition going. Draft Kenny!!!

                    Sounds like we should just draft him and run the 5-2 pressing Lynch for the 8th man. This takes care of a lot of things actually... DJ and Niko at LB Boss plays DE along with Dumervil, Thomas and (possibly) Robertson at DT and Crowder at NT. Then we could just focus the rest of the draft on a NT and draft Running Backs and Offensive Tackles until something breaks.
