  • Under the radar prospects?

    A couple of guys I was poking around on were:

    Danario Alexander, WR, Missouri, 6'5'', 215

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTDP19DFQjk

    Alexander isn't completely under the radar, because he did have a stellar season in 09 for Missouri, but he is free falling because of his injury issues. I dont see many people talking about him on these forums. His tape is great, and he really goes up for the ball. Despite his injury, his potential is great. He has the longest arms of any WR at the combine by 3/4 of an inch over Dez Bryant. He could really be a good red zone target, and seems to have a great feel for getting the football in the air. Some issues I see are his lankiness. His running style is just a little awkward, and not very fluid compared to other top notch receivers in this draft. He just looks the injury prone part, but the potential is there, and the best part is we could be looking at a future possible #1 target in the 4th-5th round range which is rare. I believe he would easily be a solid 2nd-3rd round pick without his injury concerns.

    and

    Joique Bell, RB, Wayne St. 5'10'' 220, 4.68

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGNMt1ZzJ3Q

    Very cool name to begin with (pronounced Joy-k). Could join the stable of Denver runners with the last name Bell...lol. Anyways, a heralded Division 2 player, who gets nagged on because of his division and level of competition. Nonetheless, he looks like a very athletic runner, sort of balanced between power and elusiveness. However, We already have 2 balanced runners in Buck and Moreno, so I do believe we will try to nab more of a 1 trick pony Power style back or scat back in this draft. Good thing is he should be available later in the draft...Worth a shot?




    Thoughts on them? Also feel free to post some other under the radar guys you would like to share with bronco country

    I like Bell - I mocked him to us in the 5th. I think we take a running back in this draft. If Montario Hardesty is still around at our pick in the 3rd, I believe McDaniels will snatch him up. If not, I'd love to see Bell in the 5th or 6th.

    Alexander's knee is a huge concern and because of it it's very likely he goes undrafted. That said, there's enough upside I wouldn't mind using our 7th on him.

      Damian Williams!! ??

      The Broncos Secret Target: McDaniels Has a Second Round Ace
      Reid Brooks

      Last offseason it was quarterback. This offseason its been wide receiver.

      OK, last offseason it was really both quarterback and wide receiver.

      The biggest story when free agency opened up was that only a 1st, rather than a 1st and 3rd, were placed on Brandon Marshall's head.

      I hate to say this fellow Broncos' fans, but when Marshall goes (I'd like to believe he might still stay), we're going to need some more help at receiver.

      One of the more interesting mock draft ideas that has been floating around the web-o-sphere (I just invented that word, don't even think about taking it) is a possible Dez Bryant to Denver scenario.

      Josh McDaniels had whittled down a list of about thirty guys last year in the entire draft whose characters matched what he wanted on his team. Do I think he is going to draft Dez Bryant in an awfully early position at pick 11? Especially with character questions?

      I sure hope not, and I'll give it odds of approximately 13.472%.

      If McClain is available in round 1, he's the man to go for. That pick would seal up a terrifying Orange Crush title-worthy defensive squad that has a much improved D-line.

      The secret weapon at receiver that Broncos fans should be looking for in round 2 is holding private work outs for the Broncos and receiving some pretty quiet praise around the league.

      He's been hyped as the best route runner in this year's draft; that makes him a perfect fit for a very systematic offense.

      He has experience in pro-style football already, comes from a top-flight school, and would be a first round pick if it wasn't for the extremely deep draft this year.

      The Broncos secret target is Damian Williams.

      The guy can do everything, has outstanding personal character, and should be a great fit in the McDaniels offense.

      On draft day, look for some surprises and some big splashes, but expect that if it can be done, Josh will push to get Williams into the Mile High City.

          Here's a under the radar pick.

          Denver has already looked at him and i don't think we need a new QB but if Tommy B doesn't work out.

          Tim Hiller from Western Michigan.
          This guy is another Peyton Manning but smarter.
          He has yet to ever get less than A's in school.
          He's a great pocket QB. He is quick,he can throw the deep ball.
          He is a young smarter Peyton Manning.

          In then there's alway Dan the man.

            Easily the best route runner in this class. He's actually probably the best route runner to come out in the last 5 years. Great character, hardly ever drops balls, plays his ass off. Great YAC, and did I mention his route running? It's elite. And that's probably the most important trait a WR can have.

            He's pretty much a McD guy through and through, And I'm pretty sure we worked him out.

                How is a wide receiver from USC "under the radar"? Is this the same dude?

                  Well, USC has gone a few years without an elite WR corps, so Williams suffers from the diminished spotlight. Plus, USC had a letdown season this past year while breaking in a frosh QB. But Williams is definitely one of my favorite WR draft prospects -- has fewer question marks than guys like Bryant, Benn or Thomas but perhaps less in the raw physical attributes department.

                  As for other "under the radar" prospects:

                  Al Woods, DT/DE, LSU: Good size and strength, plus he put up good numbers at his Pro Day. If we're looking for another versatile D-lineman who can play end and backup in the middle, he should be available in the 4th-5th.

                  A.J. Edds, LB, Iowa: Played SAM LB in college but could project to ILB in a 3-4 scheme. Good intangibles and--the magic word--versatility to play inside or out. Should be available in the middle-to-late rounds.

                  Walter Thurmond III, CB, Oregon: Once one of more highly regarded CB prospects in this year's draft, his draft stock has tumbled after a knee injury cost him the majority of last season and hindered his offseason draft prep. IF he's able to recover fully from his injury, he could be a Day 3 steal, providing us with good CB depth and KR abilities.

                    Jamar Chaney ILB-

                    I think when all is said and done, he will be considered the best ILB to come out of this draft. Right now McClain, Spikes, and Weatherspoon are getting all the hype, but Chaney looks like the real deal.

                    I also like Eric Decker as a big WR.

                      Damian Williams would be a fantastic pickup in the 2nd round..

                      The only problem I see with that is that he plays a LOT like Royal. He is crisp in his routes, and a guy who is not extremely straight line fast. He is compact and explosive out of his breaks and catches everything, and his YAC come from the fact that he is quick and hard to bring down because he is slippery.

                      He just reminds me a lot of Royal, not that that is a huge issue, but having two similar receivers on opposite sides, or even the same side with Royal in the slot, just doesn't seem ideal to me.

                      I hate that Marshall is as good as gone because Royal and Marsh made a great tandem in 08, with Marshall's possession abilities complimenting Royals quickness well.

                      But assuming Marshall is gone, I like the idea of getting a bigger guy to compliment Royal and Gaff, like Bey Bey or Dez.

                      I am not opposed to Williams and he would be a great pickup, but I am more open to taking that big physical threat opposite Royal and Gaffney.

                        You've go to be kidding right. There is a huge difference between book smart at football smart, and Peyton is probably the smartest quarterback to ever play the quarterback position.

                          I'm not so sure I'm sold on Damian Williams, but I think its just my hate for players coming from USC

                          One guy I'm kinda excited for is Seyi Ajirotutu, WR from Fresno State.

                            I like joquie bell however he reminds me of jj arington just slower. I rekon we are set a QB, watch highlights of tommy b. He looked great in college. However i think we need a real fast and explosive back that is homerun threat. I beleive knowshon is an inside runner and we have buckhalter is an outside runner. However we need a replacement for him after next season in my opinion.

                              Damian Williams reminds me of Javon Walker. His route running is incredible and he's a beast after the catch with some really elusive moves.

                              I really wasn't too excited about him until he started slipping to the 2nd round because of all the WR depth and I saw some clips of him. I think he'd be an awesome 2nd round pick.
