  • Did Elway clear the air on our MLB "issue?"

    When asked about our need at MLB, he said it is not really a need, because the team believes in Nate. What he said next was the kicker, as he said "particularly on first and second down" and said he is more concerned with the nickel backer.

    Ryan Shazier anybody?

    He also said IIRC that the third round or later would be that Nickle backer.

    Shakier is at best a WLB which we have one of the best already.

    Why would you pay a premium for a Nickle LB?

      Some guys who could potentially play on third down at LB:

      Mosley
      Shazier
      Van Noy
      Telvin Smith (idiot)
      Tripp
      Christian Jones (idiot)
      Williamson
      Barrow
      Fortt
      Pierre-Louis
      Kirksey
      Go Broncos!!!:thumb:

        Sounds like he's going to move up in the first and get Mosley to me. They say they believe in Nate every year and someone else starts. Don't trust anyone this time of year. It does make some sense though. Tripp or Williamson for me

          Could be a bit of a pre-draft smokescreen. If we think back to free agency, the first two players Elway went after were MLBs.

            He'd be an idiot if he came out and said "Yeah we want this guy here and that guy there since Irving sucks!"

              Elway tried to get D'Qwell Jackson and, according to the Denver Post, we were also after Jon Beason and Daryl Smith. Every year Elway says the organization is excited about Nate Irving and every year someone else is starting at MLB. It's pretty obvious we're going after a MLB in this draft. It may not be in the 1st round, but at least a mid-round prospect like Preston Brown will be under consideration. As much as I like Irving, I don't think he's gonna get the long-term job.

                        STOP IT!!! Danny T is quickly becoming one of the best WLB in the game. He's not moving to MLB.

                        The closer and closer we get to the draft the more and more I believe that Denver is going to trade up btwn 17-22 to select CJ Mosley or a CB.

                          I like this scenario as well and think that would be a scary linebacking corps.

                            We have had a MLB debate since Al Wilson retired.

                            I'm kinda tired of this debate, just trade up for Mosley or Shazier (neither of them will fall to us) and just be done with it!

                              Peter King and Rotoworld are reporting that Fox loves Rashede Hageman... how would you guys feel about that pick for the Broncos?

                              I think Hageman is the biggest boom/bust prospect in the entire draft. Wouldn't fault any team for taking him in the late first round. But I really don't know where he would play on the Broncos D... Sly Williams, Malik Jackson, and Wolfe all can play the 3 tech in the 43. If the Broncos move to a 34, Hageman's position/reps becomes even more unclear.

                              I think CB, LB, and G are more pressing needs than Dline for the Broncos.
