  • Good draft by Elway & company imo.

    • Keyarris Garrett I hope they bring him in as a rookie free agent, big fast kid Brandon Marshall 2.0 (WR version).

        Agree. Would have liked to get a LB but we filled a lot of needs for the roster going into TC.

        • Think Elway and Company did a nice job as well. Good mixture of gambling, moving up for the "franchise QB" in Paxton Lynch, drafting for need at DL and S, and then getting value at RB with Booker. I was not thrilled with the Lynch pick at first, but upon further review you simply cannot win log term in the National Football League with subpar QB play. Just ask the Cleveland Browns about that. I mean you have to take a chance to get "the guy" at QB when you see it, we have to wait and see how it turns out in the end. Interesting moves by the Browns, looks like they are angling to take Deshaun Watson in next year's draft and just tank the next season.

            Although part of that was probably because Scooby only played 3 games last season. He was 4th on the team in tackles in 2014 and in the 4-2-5 defense might have some unique experience. He faced some very good QBs and offenses in the Pac-12 over the last few seasons.
            It's actually a 3-3-5 at Arizona.

            • I like what we did overall

              1st 4 selections were good....esp Lynch imo and Booker

              Wasn't a fan of late picks but In fairness I know less about this year's draft class and any other in recent memory and idk too much about them.

                Yeah you might be correct, looking at their lineup and Parks played the "Spur" role, whatever that means. Some type of DB\LB crossover?

                Wade is creative, maybe we see some 3-3-5 coming on Defense?

                    • Link to Jake Plummer announcing Booker, if you missed it.

                      He gets so much more love from Broncos fans than he ever did from Cards...

                            I'm glad we went with who did. Kubiaks offense doesn't call for the FB to be a playmaker. It calls for lead blocking, pass blocking and PA release into the flats. When the FB does line up on the LOS he is usually motioned back into an offset position.

                            Vitale would have been a fun player, but we need someone who had more potential to be the FB for Kubiaks Offense.
                            I just realized that I completely forgot about Manassah Garner. He's listed on some of our rosters as a TE and some as a FB. He was measured at 6'2" and 234 pounds at his pro day. That's our H-Back. We already have our Vitale so it probably would have been a wasted pick to grab him instead.

                            • The only round I am disappointed with was the 4th. I think with our Safeties health and contracts coming due Killebrew could have been key for us. Trading up to get him - IMO- would have been better for us.

                                what kubiak really needs out of a FB is to be a dominant blocker. everything else is pretty minor.
