    Colts LG Quenton Nelson was named offensive rookie of the month for October.

    An award usually reserved for quarterbacks, receivers, and running backs, Nelson is the first guard in NFL history to receive the honor. He certainly deserves it. The No. 6 overall pick got off to something of a rough start, but he has been dominant over the last month, helping the Colts' offensive line develop into one of the better units in the league.


    Just think if Denver had actually address the O-Line in this years Draft...I was screaming at the TV for Denver to Draft Q. Nelson...Oh well what do I know.

    Definitely no one like him in this draft....

    What's laughable is the Broncos offensive line. Okay with the Chubb pick but I'm tired of seeing such a pathetic o line group. Hopefully it's addressed with the 2nd round pick.
    Oline should improve a ton with a real QB back there. Would much rather see what is looks like now before sending another 1st round pick to beef it up. Oline will be fine without Nelson.

    I'd be thrilled with Nelson. But Mayock has the Colts cashing in with the Bills on the very next pick.

    No way Elway passes up that deal for Nelson imo...

    If you can get a productive day 1 starter it helps tremendously. Currently, of the top 4 I'd say 2 could come in day 1 and have a shot at that mantra. I think Rosen and Mayfield have enough polish and the right skillset to do that. The other two require veterans to play in front, and then you're not getting as much relief anyways. Then you're left with the 5th year option, which just this year was about 20.5m for QBs which were picked up for Mariota and Winston. Neither of which I feel is worth that, but whatever. However, you're right if you snag a stud QB who takes over early, it's a big bonus. However, in this class I would say you're less likely to find that. If we had our pick of the liter I'd be on your side.
    Oh, no, just to clarify: I want Nelson. I wanted him last year at #20 but he stayed at Notre Dame for his Senior year. I wanted a FA QB this year and we have one.

    Sure. I don't disagree with you. I'm saying that I understand the reluctance to draft a Guard at #5 from a financial point of view. Say you draft a QB like Wilson of the Seahawks and he becomes your starter quickly. Now you've got a guy playing for less than $10 MIL who probably has a market value of over $25 MIL. You get that all the way through his rookie contract. Say you draft a guy like Nelson and he becomes a starter. Now you've got a guy playing for less than $10 MIL who probably has a market value of less than $10 MIL. With Nelson you miss out on possible cap relief. I'd still like to draft Nelson but I do understand the reluctance from a financial perspective.

    The bottom line is I would like Denver to draft him at #5 however the real question is will he even be there at #5 it could be the mere fact that he just may go higher than # 5. Maybe #2?
