    I agree on safety, I feel.like Simmons and Parks were the tandem plan. Plus, Elway has never drafted a Bama player fwiw
    Even though I am not a Bama fan I kind of wish Elway would have broke that trend last year. Though the LB I wanted had some issues, so maybe Elway wasn't wrong on him. I would have taken the TE though.

    Well there you go then. All the more reason to draft Nelson. If he is as successful as I think he can be 8+ years starter, first year starter, and possible multiple pro-bowls, it is going to cost us a lot to get someone comparable.

    Minkah gives us an upgrade in speed. but i still feel it would be best to have simmons at FS it is his more natural position. and i feel we would be best to get a coverage lber. alot of them attackign us with TE and RB was getting them matched up on LBer and abusing the fact the we do not have a good coverage LBer. i don't see how adding minkah fixes that?

    Chubb- might not be the best fit as an OLB, would need to gain weight for DE.

    Barkley- a very good player, but failed to reach 100yds rushing in 61% of his college games

    Minkah- very solid all around, but what makes him a game changer

That would be a huge help for our defense, we are good at stopping the run, and covering #1 and #2 receivers, teams attack us with Tight Ends, RB's, and 3rd receivers.

    So they'd pass on arguably the top rated player in the entire draft, at a position of need, to take a chance on a player they don't think is at good?

    He can come in a start Day 1.
    He can replace a current starter that in turn can replace another starter at a different OL position and upgrade the play marginally.
    We don't need the QB that will be available at that spot.
    Saquan Barkely isn't available.
    Denver has him graded as the best player on their board.

    Now there are scenarios where he may or may not be available later. Trading back only works if you are convinced no one else wants him or Denver is ok with another player that will fall to that trade-back spot that they didn't want to overdraft for.
    IF Nelson is their first choice just do it at 5 and be done with it.

    And here i thought we got rid of that silly number 5 argument or lack of an argument in this case. Barkley isnt the only top draftee we can get at 5 so moving back doesnt make sense unless you get set up extremely nicely for next year or two and are able to get the guys you want when you trade back. The later isnt a guarantee

    When you think about. Nelson would boost both our run game and pass game keeping the pocket clean for keenum to step up in and opening up lanes for cj to run through. I’m 100% for Nelson.
