    Leatherwood would be best served staying another year in school to work on his strength, but you have to love his upside. if he puts on more strength and can maintain most of the athletism he has he can be a very good LT in the nfl. and most people should get more strength with the more rigorous training schedules and stuff they get in the nfl vs college. they weight lift more and practice more football. so any one put in that enviroment should gain muscle. but i am seeing him top 10 in some mocks and the need for OTs in the nfl is real.

    This is the least analytical comment I’ll ever make on this board, but with a name like Jon Runyan, there’s no way he plays less than 12 seasons in the NFL.
    His daddy played 14 Seasons.

    Like every year, I think DEN should heavily invest in OL.

    Here are some midround options:
    Walker Little OT Stanford
    Scott Frantz T/G Kansas State
    Jon Runyan T/G Michigan
    Ben Bredeson OG Michigan
    Isaiah Wilson OT Georgia

    Does Bridgewater become a free agent? His contract has no years remaining after this year (the two remaining years are both automatically voided years and contain base salaries of $0) but neither does Brees. Bridgewater played well in relief of Brees, and with Brees also out of contract and at an age of 41, I'm not sure the Saints let Bridgewater walk away.

    Although if he is a free agent (and the Broncos decide to sign another veteran) it could be a bit of a depressed market for QBs (Newton, Winston, Mariota, Brady, Brees, Bridgewater, Rivers are all currently slated to become free agents) so they might be able to sign him for cheaper than we would expect.

    I wanted Bridgewater two years ago, so I wouldn't be upset, but I'm not sure that's the road the Broncos will go down.

    i think there are three tackles worth a top ten pick i would go over Lamb, Thomas, Wirfs and LEatherwood all look like legit top ten tackle prospects.

    At 6’5” 318 lbs, he may be asked to lose some weight to play as the 3-4 DE. He’s got plenty of athleticism and quickness to do so. I think he possibly could. And it would suddenly be a big need if we lose Wolfe/Shelby Harris in the offseason.
    akiem Hicks played DE for Fangio at 6'4 324ish. he is technically listed at 352 but i am not sure he is that big. but he was a huge DE in fangios scheme. how do you think Brooks Compares to him

    he could potentially be a good fit at DE though. Fangio likes big DE with a bit of pass rushing. he had Akiem hicks at DE most of the season could brown fit in there?

    I don't know if Derrick Brown is exactly a scheme fit at NT. I like Purcell so far, but I don't think he's gonna consistently play up to the "Eddie Goldman" role in Vic Fangio's defense. I do hope that I am wrong, though. With that being said, investing in the trenches should be a huge focus for our FO this offseason.

    Love the picks but I'm in agreement with the others about another veteran bridge Qb. I would have preferred Teddy over Flacco this year for sure.
    But at 26 he really isn’t your typical bridge QB. He was improving in Minnesota before the horrific knee injury, he’s been in the playoffs, and he played at a pretty good level when replacing Brees this season. Of course he was playing in an amazing scheme with arguably the best WR and dual threat RB in the league with a great oline so he absolutely could be fools gold.

    But I have to think he’s learned a lot in that system and still has all the tools you look for in a QB. And just like I said last season and the season before when I wanted him, he’s young enough to be a franchise QB and he will still likely be far cheaper than your typical high profile QB, definitely less than Flacco.

    Alas Flacco and his contract will stop us from pouring money into the position IMO. I still think he gets cut and while the rollover will offset the dead cap for the most part, I just don’t think we’re going to invest more money there while we have Lock on the roster.
