    Call it a hunch :-)
    I think he will start vickerson and dareus, and then rotate a guy like thomas or a FA

      Are you being sarcastic? Cant tell...

      We have NO ONE at Tebows blind side if Harris leaves or breaks again. Get used to the idea of an OT in the 2nd. Its gonna happen.

        1) In Fox's history at Carolina, did he ever have a TE roster as poor as the one we have right now?
        2) There's often nothing more helpful to a young QB then a good TE

        Although I think we can assume Fox isn't the type of person to normally pursue TEs aggressively, this is really quite a different scenario.

        Particulary #2, our offense last year was often just plain stale, a TE is often that spark lighter so regardless of Orton or Tebow a TE could be a big help to this team. And having said that I say yes to Rudolph at 46, but i really don't consider him a steal at that point, I say fair value and i only say yes because our TE need is so great but it would definitely need to be being weighed against the defensive players available.
        Last year Carolina had worse TEs than us imo. Gronkowski and Quinn are both better blockers and I think Gronkowski is on par with Rosario in the receiving game, not that that is saying much because Rosario isn't that good. I think Quinn will show that he can be a viable dump off option given the chance this season.

          I thought the TE may be addressed during the FA signing period. Since there may not be a FA signing period the team may draft a tight end.

          Rudolph could be an option in Round 2.

          I would rather the team go heavy on defense in the first 3 rounds and maybe try to get a tight end in the later rounds.

                A pass catchig, bug blocking tight end is going to be crucial to Tebow, both protecting during pass plays, and a dump off valve. Tebow used Aaron Hernandez in a variety of ways in FLA, including dump off valves.

                So I see this pick as addressing two issues: 1 - we lack an impact TE, 2 - we need a TE who can block because we need help on the O Line.

                  Absolutely serious. O-Line seems to be neglected by most of the posters on this site. I rate O-Line need as second to D-Line need. I'd love to see us get a quality guy at each position - DT and OT.

                    I don't see Rudolph making it to pick 46. In fact, I think Atlanta takes him in round 1.

                      I would be excited if Rudolph was in the second , but i got a feeling hes going to be taken in the last 1st.

                      Personally I would like Dareus , Rudolph 2A and , Paea 2B.

                      There also seems to be some buzz about Von Miller going #2 wich seems unlikely IMO.

                        It is interesting to see that after about 50 votes, it's almost 3:1 in favor of taking Rudolph, which means to me that the vast majority of Broncos fans recognize the significance of that gap.

                        (insert joke here regarding the 12 other gaps)
