        Knowing his age himself, he might be a cheap acquisition. He'd be a great veteran for a rookie, or younger player, to learn from. I'm not completely against the idea. We shouldn't give him a high-paying/long-term contract though.

          A good versatile C is rare infact you might even say its one of the most rare positions out there. How often is a C/G/T so good most experts say he should go in the first. I say we go for it but I wouldnt mind seeing Mawae as a coach in the near future yes hes a zone blocker but he is still an amazing player who has shown dominants at the position.

            No Mawae in Denver

            By Mike Klis View

            There are various reports stating the Broncos, who desperately need a center, and veteran free-agent center Kevin Mawae have expressed mutual interest in each other.

            While there are various ways to characterize “interest” an NFL source told me Maewae ain’t happening in Denver. Mawae, the president of the NFL players union, is not only 39 years old, his 289-pound frame is too light for the Broncos’ new power-type blocking system. Remember, the Broncos released Casey Wiegmann, who hasn’t missed a snap since the 2001 opener, because he was considered too small at 285 pounds.

            The best center prospect in the draft is Florida’s Maurkice Pouncey, who is expected to be selected in the first round.

              Great point.

              Especialy since we have NO CENTER AT ALL right now.

              He would be good to teach the rookie we draft.
              And to be there when the rookie runs out of gas in week 10.

              We should sign him for depth.

                Isn't the reason for F/A's to come here or anywhere, for NEED?

                Why would you spend a top 75 pick on a center?

                I'm not saying its not a position of need...It's VERY important. But you build skill through the draft...SKILL. You can draft a 7th round center and he can become All-Pro.

                When you have top picks like we do, you dont use them on a position you can fill VIA F/A... You really cant fill ILB, RB, WR, QB, CB VIA F/A...unless you shell out a TON plus lose something.

                So you draft Skilled, Fill in F/A's...Bingo

                If any of the skilled positions are there at #62...Best, Thomas, Benn, Cody, McCourty, Kyle Wilson..______________Fill in the blank...You would take a Center that got man handled at the senior bowl...Or a Center thats really a 4th to 5th rounder but you need one so you REACH...NO THANKS!!!!!


                Give me a 5-6th round center...And give me a position I stated earlier in the second. Anyone that says they are ok for a Center in the swecond better be sure he is a MANGOLD...or as good.

                  I always assumed that he was to small for our new system so was suprised to see this on twitter before.

                  Its looking more and more likely that we will take a centre early in the draft. I hope we trade down or up and get Pouncey. I wouldn't mind Walton at all but I think Pouncey is going to be a great centre for whoever drafts him.

                    For those of you who say anyone can BUST... Ill take my chances on a 2nd Round ILB,CB,WR,QB,D-LINE, rather then a center.

                    We will look back at this draft and say...LOOK how much talent we passed on for a center in the 2nd *** were we thinking?

                      Jets are content with Mangold, no?

                      We don't have the luxury to throw darts blindly at the wall. We have nobody to play OC. Nobody. Aint nobody out there either.

                      We also have a team built to win now. Yes, I said it. Look at our defense. Solid indeed, but avergae age is up there. Champ, Dawk, Jamal, Goodman.

                      There are 2 OCs who can step in and play week-1 (Pouncey & Walton). Sure, we might find a dude in the later rounds, but we could also find the next Enslinger or something.

                      Clady - Olsen - ? - Kuper - Harris

                      There we go. We need to take Walton in the 2nd round. Dude is smart, extremely physical, just battled that UT D-line (houston), Suh (Nebraska) and Mccoy (Oklahoma). Held his own. He's NFL-ready, and a leader. Plus, if we shoot for Walton we can go in another direction in the 1st round.

                      Hey, maybe Cody (or if Mcclain slips), or some WR might be flashier.... But is anyone upset we took Clady over Chris Johnson?

                      As for QB or DB.... we are set and have absolutely no need to take one early.

                        See when you think we dis-agree...We are TOTAL AGREEING with one another...

                        We are built to WIN NOW!!!!!! Thats the point, we are one PLAYMAKER away from being a 12-4 team..There I said IT!

                        I get Walton, I do I really do... But If we are dead set on taking a center In the first and then not only drafting him in the 2nd...BUT STARTING DAY ONE...In Josh's system

                        NO WAY!!!!!

                        Center's are almost important as QB's...so to ask a 21 year old kid to take in, not only the NEW speed of the NFL...Oh, By the way...HERE learn this new offense...

                        Im sorry I know J.D is smart but to put the hopes of this years team in a 2nd round center...A rookie...Is not something I can live with...

                        What I can live with, is give me some one thats done it in the NFL, we can trade for one or pick one up...Then draft a guy and say Learn while you are riding the pine...

                        Learn while we are in the playoffs...Your not gonna tell J.D ...Here, you got the job dont screw it up...

                        That would be like giving me a motorcycle, and say dont wreck it...Having never drove one...The kid has never played a down...Lets get someone that has...Lets win, and grow a center...?

                          Interesting, you guys do know this is the guy who cheap shotted Merriman in 07 right?

                          Rivalry intensifies yet again...
                          Rivers is deciding to play bad, just to see how it feels.

                            like with most of our free agent signings, there's a reason why most teams don't even want the guy.

                              I think we just need someone to fill in that slot while we draft a center in april.

                              I just saying the obvious stuff so I can't be argued with.

                                That's just it- there is nobody left. Music stopped playing and the chair are full. Sure, we could let Olsen play OC, but then we still need a guard.

                                We are shifting to a new power blocking scheme. Simply put, tell Walton to block either man to left or right on runs... protect middle on passing downs. NOt rocket science.

                                Clady stepped in day one and was fine.

                                I believe a good OL makes a decent RB look good, and a good RB look great. A good OL, giving a QB time to survey, make good WR look great. However, you can have great RBs & great WRs but if your OL is below average, then those RB & WR look average.

                                We need a OC. I would rather gamble on a blue chip prospect, than some washed up has-been (or never will be) plus a late-round dark horse candidate.

                                If there are other options... let me know.

                                I mean, who are we passing in the 2nd round that would mean more to our future and 2010 than Walton?
