    Likely because Jack and Smith were elite talents before their injuries. This guy was at best a second round pick before the injury. The good news is he is pretty raw and hasn't even played the game for a long time. So he may have substantial upside. But talent wise is not considered in the same league as Jack and Smith.

    • Just because a player is projected to go in certain rounds by the talking heads doesnt mean thats where all teams value them.

      Teams spend literally hundreds and hundreds of hours studying and analyzing these players.

      And who knows, maybe other teams were looking at Gotsis. Just because you dont know much about a player doesnt mean its a bad pick

      • Elway has built this team his way and into Super Bowl contention the last 4-5 years. Whose to argue with his decisions. Keep building the foundation for now and for the future.

            Exactly, We drafted a DT and Adolfus Washington just went too over all of those guys.

              What makes yours any more realistic? Looks like 95% of the people on here say they trust elway. And obviously you missed my post before the one you quoted

              • I like the sound of this kid but know little about him. Good size and strength, a team captain and non stop motor. Hard to move on the DL and his knee is doing fine after combine checks, due to be back for TC

                • What he brings Insider: Gotsis is an Australian native who has just four years of experience playing football, but he improved every year at Georgia Tech. He has ideal measurables with quality bulk, long arms and heavy hands that provide him with excellent point-of-attack skills. He is most effective as an interior pass-rusher, where he uses his quickness and power combination to gain initial leverage on blockers. Gotsis is coming off a season-ending knee injury, but assuming he checks out medically, he has the size, athleticism, versatility and physical edge to develop into a starter, ideally as a 5-technique for a base 3-4 scheme. -- Kevin Weidl

                  How he fits: Denver signed Jared Crick but it also lost Malik Jackson to free agency and needed to add depth along the defensive line. Gotsis is similar to Derek Wolfe in that he has the ability to play on the outside, where he's stout against the run, or on the inside, where he has the potential to develop into a disruptive pass-rusher. He's a perfect fit for the Broncos. -- Steve Muench

                      • There are about 15 picks left in the round and three of the top five RB's are still on the board.

                        • "2015 NFL Draft: Georgia Tech's Adam Gotsis a name to remember" by Rob Rang

                          With his speed - wonder if he has more potential moving to DE. His 40 is as fast as Nkemdiche - not that a 40 time is everything.

                          SonOfBum at work driving Elway to pick Gotsis?

                                possible the large amount of talent on defense in this draft is dropping the backs down in the draft?
