    • What are everyone's thoughts on the second round?

      If SJB is still there...do you go back to back CB since Carter and Bolden are our depth at CB?
      Go Broncos

        absolutely not. I am hoping for Marcus martin or Weston Richburg. Maybe later in the draft but not 2nd round.

          I have Martin as my 2nd round pick so really hoping he makes it to us. Very versatile kid who still has a ton of room to grow.

            Would you go Marcus over Kareem Martin?

            I like both guys a lot. Would probably lean towards Marcus..

            • Here's a little "Did you know?" Since Elway and Fox have been in control, our 1st picks of the draft have all been on defense.

                Im going to enjoy it even if the broncos don't pick a single player i want because at the end of the day i trust Elway

                  I would. Both have potential but OC seems like a bigger need to me than DE and Martin could be a very solid swing OC/OG backup to Manny before taking over in a year or two.

                      If we knew without a doubt that Marcus would be a day 1 starter, i'd probably trade our 1st next year to get him around 45, and use our 2nd on Martin.

                        We might double dip at CB but I doubt back-to-back. Maybe Antone Exum or Dontae Johnson in the 4th? Hopefully we can get a day 1 starter on the o-line in round 2. See SB2010 post #937

                          • Im all for the Roby pick if it can get Bolden out of our secondary.

                            • While seeing their other targets go off the board earlier, the Broncos filled one of their primary needs Thursday night by selecting Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby with the 31st pick of the first round.

                              "We were actually thrilled to get Bradley at No. 31," Broncos general manager John Elway said. "He was the highest-rated guy left on our board by a long shot.

                              "He can run and he is smart. We were thrilled he was there at 31. He's a guy that we didn't think would be there. He has that tremendous talent and, really, tremendous upside."

                              Roby, 5-foot-11 and 194 pounds, was considered perhaps the top athlete among draft-eligible cornerbacks and was thought to be a favorite of the Broncos. He intercepted eight passes in three seasons with the Buckeyes and was a sure tackler.

                              "I just can't wait to work and make myself better," Roby said in a conference call Thursday night.

                              Off-the-field issues might have caused Roby to slip down the first round.

                              "We have a tremendous locker room, so he will get a lot of guidance," Elway said. "Hopefully he can learn from those (mistakes)."

                              But he was not considered a detriment to the Buckeyes locker room and did not struggle academically.

                              "I'm not a bad guy. You guys are not getting a guy you have to worry about off the field."

                              NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock called Roby a "top 15 talent" in the first round.

                              "I can play it all," Roby said. "I feel like I can be effective outside as well as inside.

                              "My aggressiveness will add a little flair to the defense."

                              Denver might have been holding its breath while awaiting San Francisco's pick at No. 30, one spot above Denver's.

                              The 49ers picked a defensive back, but went with Jimmie Ward of Northern Illinois.

                              POST POLL - BRADLEY ROBY

                              What do you think of Broncos drafting Bradley Roby in 1st round?

                              Love it: Big value and upside at No. 31
                              Loathe it: Off-the-field issues troubling
                              Don't get it: Is CB a position of need?

                              Sometimes intrigue in an NFL draft involves teams with a pick near the bottom of the first round.

                              Denver began Thursday night in the 31st spot and most believed it was unlikely that the Broncos would stay there. But Roby has the physical tools to compete for immediate playing time and perhaps ultimately become the replacement for departed veteran Champ Bailey.

                              The Broncos met with Roby during the combine. Elway said Roby would begin with the team as an outside, cover corner.

                              "He's going to fit right in with our defense," Elway said. "He can tackle."

                              Two linebackers thought to be on the Broncos' wish list went in the middle of the first round. Pittsburgh took Ohio State's Ryan Shazier at No. 15. And two picks later, Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome looked to his alma mater and selected Alabama's C.J. Mosley.

                              Even earlier, at No. 14, Chicago nabbed cornerback Kyle Fuller from Virginia Tech. Fuller had been projected by draft analysts to last until the mid-20s — which perhaps could have been close enough to the Broncos' to trade up from No. 31.

                              Then two more cornerbacks dropped off the board 10 picks later when Cincinnati took Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard at No. 24 and San Diego followed by nabbing TCU's Jason Verrett at No. 25.

                              "We tried to move up, but the price was too high," Elway said. "It was prohibitive."

                              Entering the draft, the Broncos held the standard seven draft picks — one per round. Barring trades, Denver's two selections for Friday night are No. 63 overall in second round and No. 95 overall in the third.

                              In addition to inside linebacker and cornerback, the Broncos also are looking for a contributor on the offensive line.

                              "This pick fulfills a need for us, so we can go other ways," Elway said. "We still believe we can get some good football players on the offensive side."

                              Rounds 4-7 will be conducted on Saturday.

                              • Seahawks smart move, turned #32 into three picks. I'm interested to see what they get, they're known for picking up the overlooked guys that end up stars lately.

                                I like the Roby pick. Fast & physical guy in the secondary.
