    The most appealing player in this bunch to join DJ in the middle is Channing Crowder, IMO. Picking him up gives us more options going into the draft, making the BJ Raji pick look REALLY good.

    Its still really hard to pass on Rey Maualuga knowing what he can bring to this defense. The Broncos selecting Rey means they must have some faith in Ron Brace in the 2nd, to hold down NT. Either way you look at it, I think we're in pretty good position to go either way and find success. Out of that group though, Channing Crowder is who I'd go with.

    ....that's why the first round pick should be Maualuga...he fits either a 4-3 or a 3-4, and since the Broncos are likely to morph between the two, you need a player that can do both.

    i have always like andra davis...and taking a chance on crowell could be a good move as well.

    I would love to draft rey maualuga, but if we got either of these guys instead i would not be too dissapointed

    I do believe that Angelo Crowell would be a great fit for ILB in a 3-4 and he could play SLB in a 4-3 since we will be using a hybrid scheme most likely. People tend to shy away from him because of his "knee injury" but in reality the injury he missed last year due to was pretty minor. He has played with the injury, which is a knee cap issue, and he addressed it right before the season, and the surgery is considered a complete reliever of the issue.

    He's a great player, and I would love to see him with DJ Williams on the inside in our 3-4. His versatility to play almost any position in the LB corps would be fantastic to have on the D. He wouldn't be an expensive guy either, and he has done nothing but produce in his young career. He's 27, 6'1" 245, so he has good size as well.

    What I want is a Ray Lewis type guy. Hey, how about Ray Lewis?? !!

    As for Vilma - 2 years ago I would have taken him, but didn't he have some injuries that have permantently affected his playing ability. Either that, or it was a system deal. Why didn't he fit in with N.O.??

    why do you say that?

    He's bigger and more athletic than James Harrison

    Options At Middle Linebacker

    For one, I would like to see DJ Williams stay as the weakside linebacker in the 3-4. Would you?

    If we want to do this, we need somebody who we can pair up with a draft pick or Spencer Larsen (I hope Larsen gets a shot here)...

    Here are some free agent linebackers that could fit in as an Inner Linebacker, some might be cheaper than others:

    Channing Crowder
    Andra Davis
    Bart Scott
    Eric Barton (the best, cheapest option IMO)
    Karlos Dansby
    Ray Lewis (a long shot)
    Mike Peterson
    Jonathan Vilma
    Leroy Hill
    Angelo Crowell (nobody is talking about this guy)
    Michael Boley

    I understand that this is a long list.......but who would you want the Broncos to sign to help us out at Middle Linebacker (assuming we keep DJ as an Outside Linebacker)
