        Yea, I agree. Unless someone slips which is very rare at the QB position I'd wait at least a year. The Broncos have enough holes to fill now that they don't have the luxury to waste a pick on someone that won't play for 3 years or so. Take a late round project, but that's it.


        • Peyton Manning Mock Draft

          Mentality- We need to change our mentality a bit. On defense, we're already doing so, but we need to build to play from ahead. This means pass rushers and DBs. On offense, weapons for Manning. Simple as that.

          Trade Timothy Tebow for a 3rd Round pick from the Jaguars.

          Trade a second rounder for Jonathan Stewart

          Sign- Jeff Saturday, Dallas Clark, Brodrick Bunkley, Brian Dawkins (one more year, buddy), Amobi Okoye, Marcus Trufant

          Reports are that we're going after Saturday, Clark can come too.

          1st Round- Mike Wallace. Swag. We take him from Pittsburgh, and put an animal across from Demaryius.

          3rd Round- Joe Adams, WR/KR, Arkansas- Royal's gone. We need more explosiveness both on offense and special teams. Joe Adams gives us both, and is GREAT at both. He'll be a dynamic returner, and coming in as the 4th receiver behind Thomas, Wallace, and Decker, he'd be great. He also has the ability to line up as a weapon in the backfield, Percy Harvin like.

          3rd Round- Mike Martin, DT, Michigan- Makes all of the sense in the world. High motor player in a position of need.

          4th Round- Nick Foles, QB, ASU- Developmental QB behind Manning if Tebow leaves. Manning like in measurables, just needs seasoning.

          5th Round- Ronnie Hillman, RB, SDSU- Mini Marshall Faulk, as Faulk claimed himself. Indianappolis had 3 3rd down running backs as their only backs, we'll settle for 2, Moreno being the other. Hillman could be our Darren Sproles.

          6th Round- Donte Paige-Moss, DE, UNC- He has elite natural ability, he just needs coaching and motivation. Worth the risk in the sixth, because he could end up being a real stud.

          7th Round- Blake Gideon, S, Texas- Was formerly considered a second round pick, but he stayed 2 years longer than he should have. If he can rebound, he'll be a good depth player at least.

          QB- Peyton Manning, Nick Foles, Adam Weber

          RB- Wilis McGahee/Jonathan Stewart, Knowshon Moreno

          FB- Spencer Larsen

          WR- Demaryius Thomas, Joe Adams, Matt Willis
          WR- Mike Wallace, Eric Decker

          TE- Dallas Clark, Julius Thomas, Virgil Green

          LT- Clady, Harris
          LG- Beadles, Franklin
          C- Saturday, Walton
          RG- Kuper, Hochstein
          RT- Franklin/Harris

          DE- Dumervil, Paige-Moss
          DE- Ayers, Beal

          DT- Bunkley, Thomas
          DT- Okoye, Martin, McBean

          WLB- Williams, Woodyard
          MLB- Irving, Mays
          SLB- Miller, Haggan

          SS- Dawkins, Adams
          FS- Carter, Moore, Bush

          CB- Champ, Goodman, Thompason
          CB- Trufant, Harris, Vaughn
          Fightin' Texas Aggie c/o '16


          • Manning's arrival, how does it affect draft strategy?

            Greetings all, first post from a long time lurker. I hope it is a good start. No bandwagon here, born and live in N.C. but been a part of Colorado in spirit (and body from time to time) since 1976, when my Dad moved out there. Got my first "Orange Crush" T-shirt and my Vail Winter Olympics gear that year. Suffice to say, I loath all things Texas, spit on a Raiders grave, Still think that the stadium should and always will be "Mile High", and wave when passing on the mountain road.

            It's a bit lonely being a Bronco in North Carolina, but there is a far amount of exchange between our two states, enough so I find fans just about anywhere. The only other team I love as much is my NC STATE WOLFPACK! (This has been a most excellent few days of sporting news )

            So my first question here:

            With Manning joining the team, how does this affect the draft strategy? Do we pursue a WR now in the first round? I need to go back and check out who will be around when the Bronco's pick to see the projected talent, but feel that another solid WR prospect would really tighten up things for the new passing oriented offense.

            FYI, I do like the Panthers back here in N.C., and when Fox went to Denver, lets just say I was less than thrilled. Still, he is a decent coach and I feel he can win the big one. I felt he stifled the passing game for he is an old school coach (Defense and running the ball), so it is imperative that the OC and Manning run the show.

            I bring Fox up, for the Panthers just signed Mike Tolbert from the Chargers, and since the Panthers already has a SOLID stable of RB's, that means that one of them, DeAngelo Williams (signed to a huge contract last year), Jonathan Stewart (entering the final year of his contract) and Mike Goodson (who fell out of favor last season and looks very expendable), could be on the trading block. Fox, most certainly, will be on top of this. So it looks like Denver could also add a known quality RB! One can hope.

            Anyway, I am glad to be here in print instead of lurking in the shadows. I hope to be a solid contributor and GO BRONCO'S!

            P.S. My co-worker is a die hard Raider fan. His tears have been most gratifying today.

              • QB and WR early are no possibilities. I think we still need more help on defense though. WR can wait in the later rounds. Look at what he did with Collie and Garcon.


                • i really hope we dont sign wallace unless the deal is far less than what im expecting.


                  • Draft kellen moore!

                    I for one think Moore would be an awesome qb to develope behind Manning. Thoughts?


                    • they call him top ramen cuz his arm is noodles (whack joke i know)

                      but all his problems have to do with is hieght which cant be fixed. if he was bigger then i would be all in on him but i just dont know. he has a manning like mind though.

                        I was on his bandwagon but wow did he look horrid at the combine. He could barely get the ball to the WRs and didn't look accurate.


                        • Moore will be a good backup QB. Smart kid, will take him if he is there in the 5th round.


                          • I think it is way too Offensive-centric. I like it but I think we need to do more for our defense.

                            It would make our team really good though and I wouldn't mind at all if it ended like this.


                            • QB and WR early, doubtful.

                              MAYBE RB.

                              Manning makes any WR look good.

                              I'd expect us to go DE, CB, DT, RB with our top picks.


                              • This would be a scary good team, and unlike most mocks I've seen, it actually seems plausible. Gotta remember, with Fox and Del Rio being able to completely focus on the defense, that's gonna make a huge difference on that side of the ball.
