    Had some lapses in concentration but with the game on the line he came through in the clutch.


    Makes a terrific over the shoulder catch


    Closest thing to a highlight reel I can find, it's actually a pretty good video of him.

    You realize the only thing linking Xander's to that article is the photo right? This is what casserly did before the draft, not necessarily Xanders or the Broncos.

    If Hightower is around the same player as Rolondo McClain, Id pass. The Broncos already have a 2 down thumper. He looks like a better fit in 34. But im not opposed to the idea of a mlb, if they can cover. Hightower doesnt seem like a good fit, though.

    If we draft Hightower with the 25th pick i hope he is a playmaker and hits as hard as Ray Lewis

    Hightower is a good player, but he doesnt fit our scheme

    will prolly go to the Steelers or Ravens

    The best MLBs in the league tend to be really fluid athletes. Brian Urlacher played as a Safety/LB hybrid in college.

    There are a bunch of quality DTs. I personally like Brandon Thompson and Kendall Reyes. Both are good at run defense, Brandon Thompson destroys any single team he gets and collapses the pocket, and Reyes is pretty good at pass rushing but still has a TON of potential to improve upon.

    Dt is not a juicy position usually there is a standout player or two and everyone else. This year there are no standouts so there is just a lot of players who are about the same level and its hard to tell who is best

    There is good value at the DT position in the 2nd/3rd rounds

    I think we are gonna focus more on guys with solid pass rush though I would take a look at Chapman if he is there in the 3rd

    My two favorites DTs are Cox and Still
    Cox will be long gone, Still may be there for us

    Brockers right now only draws double teams, he doesnt really have any pass rushing skills
    he will be drafted for his size, but I wouldnt spend a first on him
    Poe will be drafted because of what he did at the combine, but I also wouldnt touch him in the first
    Has short arms and frankly was nothing special in college going against poor competition

    Worthy has the talent, but is too inconsistent for me
    but that quick first step he has is intriguing

    Brandon Thompson is a guy I like
    doesnt get pushed around and is able to routinely push the pocket

    I dont know a ton about Reyes, but I would be ok with him from the little I have seen of him
    Seems to have a good pass rush

    Billy Winn is a guy I like as well
    Good rusher and was productive in college

    Dont know much about Wolfe
    Martin is a NT with short arms and has no pass rush really
    I think he could be a solid player but I doubt we are interested in him

    plus I think Chapman is better anyways

    we could go BPA in the first and still get a quality starting DT with our second

    The question is would a Perry be more impact than a Worthy for us? If we did go Perry, we would be loading up ala NY Giant style on pass rushers which I'm all for. But if the Broncos think I guy like Worthy can add a ferociousness in the Tackle postion for us, that may be more appealing.

    Under Del Rio, we may just want big monstrous space cloggers and load up on edge pass rushers.

    Where do you think Perry could fit in our 3rd down front line if we already have Miler, Ayers and Doom? I don't think Perry, Miller or Doom could play at a tackle position on 3rd downs. At 271 maybe Perry could?
    The question I would have about Perry is.....would he be any better than Ayers? My answer would be, probably not, and if he is, not by much. I think Perry might be a better pass rusher but less skilled in the run game. I would also question how he would play at the higher weight. That doesn't seem like a very big upgrade or impact player that we need in the first round this season when compared to how a DT like Worthy or Reyes would impact the team.

    I hate the "NASCAR" package. I hope we draft some DTs that can get to the passer instead.
    I'm kind of leaning this way too...guys like Reyes and Wolfe seem more sound up the middle as they have the strength and moves to get it done up the middle. Not to mention they both are going to be way more stout against the run than any DE we put in there.
