    Completely disagree with our Dline. We have a Dline that doesnít generate much pressure and a Dline that wasnít very good at stopping the run. They rank 21st against the run last year and allowed for the first time, two back to back 200+ Yard runners. If we sign Harris that might be the only true bright spot. But Wolfe, Adam, and Shelby combined for 6 sacks. Walker will never gets a legit chance because he is built for a 4-3 team( our team would be better suited for a 4-3). They sprinkled him in a couple times and he played well though.

    Iím going to be the bad guy and say that Derek Wolfe is overrated right now and is not worth the $10 million heíll be getting this year. I donít care if he is Von right hand man, for that kind of money he needs to be producing for himself as well. With that kind of money we could get a stud LB like Mosley with $10 million. I think most people would pick the younger stud over Wolfe right now. Adam Gotsis flashes moments but is never is consistent. Shebly is the same exact way but with less playing time. We have no players that can rotate with these guy to keep them fresh. DLine is a concern and should be address in this draft. Where itís Dline heavy.

    At DL, there seems to be more in-house options and more FA options too.

    IMO, Denver's main issue is lack of quality offensive linemen and starters at OL.
    FA does not seem to have long term options to cover their OL needs.

    If Denver doesn't draft OL then I hope they select fast, quick (sub 4.4)
    skilled players to overcome the ever-collapsing pocket.

    IND drafted: (2018)
    Round 1, No. 6 overall: Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame
    Round 2, No. 37: Braden Smith, OG, Auburn

    Denver needs something similar.

    indy also has a mvp caliber QB and a good back up. brissett would probably be a better starting option then keenum. but ya i feel if denver gets a good QB and an average o-line our D is good enough to keep us in the game or win the game if we could get an offense thats puts up 20-25 points on average.

    Denver needs to hit on every OL prospect they draft.

    LT Bolles, couple years left.
    LG Leary, returning from an injury, contract expires soon.
    OC McGovern, one year left.
    RG Wilkinson, unsure.
    RT vacant

    Depth is ever worse.

    IMO, Denver should draft mostly OL and a few speedy specialist.
    Then next year run the ball with Keenum at the helm.

    The following year draft the team's franchise QB who will play behind a seasoned OL.

    It could be worse.

    Leary has 2 years left on his contract but Iíve seen reports about how he might be cut if they canít get him to restructure with all the injuries heís had.

    I Can see us going OT in the draft I do like Max Scharping he could potential move to LT if we donít see a massive improvement from Bolles this year.

    I think McGovern will start at guard this year for us, he played well enough last year to get a chance this year.

    Be interesting to see if we resign Paradis if we donít give him a long term contract or tag him then I think we should look at B.J Finney heís played well in limited action for the Steelers so we could get him reasonably cheap
