    Well think about what we might lose after this year.

    OT- gonna need one regardless, Bolles is good as gone after season.

    DL- Can never have too many

    OLB- Miller is probably done as a Bronco, we need a young replacement. Man I wish we would have traded Von last year and signed Barrett.

    S- if we lose Simmons we will desperately need a safety, especially with Jackson pushing 33-34 years old.

    Best value at one of those positions. But I also would LOVE a guy like Parsons!

    Or they will have this weird hybrid...some will play and others won't....

    If lock pans out, multiple 1sts to go get Penei Sewell

    Why not add a stout cover/run ILB to the mix?

    After all, the Broncos field two ILBs. 🤷

    Hey I'm all for a dominate ILB. I get tired of TEs killing us in the middle and our lb core getting pushed back allowing huge gains in the run game. Johnson came along and really changed things so imagine a great LB next to him? We would easily go from liability to a dominate lb core. Believe it or not the raiders chiefs and Chargers can run the ball pretty well so I'm all for a top LB prospect to come in and affect those things.

    The major issue we've had since 2015 was the inability to cover RBs and TEs once they get behind the line. We've been taken out of games in years past because of it.

    Fangio seems to be great at plugging CBs in and having them work. Right now we need that other ILB to pair with Johnson.

    As others have said a rocking ILB duo can mask the bad and expand ALOT in the defensive playbook.

    its more the player then the position. i think Parson is gonna be a top LB in this league from day 1. is super special.

    The easiest way to sum it up would probably be, if you have a great ILB your other defenders can make mistakes and try to force things and that ILB will cover up those flaws. But if you don’t, the rest of the defense kind of has to try to stay within their own little box.

    But it isn’t easy to find a 240 lb guy that can backpedal and flip his hips just as well as he can stack and shed/read and diagnose. The need for ILBs isn’t declining, the skill set is just lagging behind the evolution of the game. I think they’re just now finally starting to catch back up.

    but I doubt Denver selects in the top-10.

    6'7 Virginia LB Charles Snowden in R3 would be my selection.
    ya at this point who really knows. either way i just think he is the ideal NFL lber in todays league

    I think they may keep him around the team is pretty young and people could not be 100% developed enough to be a decent start. And I am still very worried about our oline not enough was done to improve that unit in my opinion. Plus giving up on a qb year one is bad practice. He is not like lynch and actually has a work ethic.

    maybe, i like to know who are consider the high picks coming into the season and who to watch. plus alot of the kids who are considered high already have some college tape. i watched a bit of penn state cause i loved watching Hamler in college he was so explosive and fun to watch. so i was Parsons, what i didn't relize how big he was. either way i like to know alot of about the class coming in so i have an idea of suprises or current highly rated prospects or anything. right now i can already tell you the top of my wish list(who all hopefully be gone by the time we pick cause i think they will go top 5-10. in Penei Sewell,, Micah PArsons and Shaun Wade. Alex LEatherwood would be a great pick also.

    i can tell you also there looks to be at least 3 top 5 QBs this draft in Trey Lance Justin Fields and Trevor Lawrence. so that could be good if we go kinda high taking i am still sold on Lock, and i think we should give him multiple years as the starter unless he looks horrible

    6-7% can mean a lot on outside stretch runs and when trying to cover TEs/LBs. Seems about right though.
