    The "Whose Stock Is Rising" (and sadly, whose is falling) Thread

    Seeing as The Combine is set to go very soon, I thought it would be cool to start a thread that has a primary focus on who is rising in the draft circles....and yes, who is falling down the charts.

    As of today, I have no one specifically in mind, but I am quite sure that will change by the end of next week's Combine. But as usual, I am quite sure a QB or two find their names rising or otherwise. At some point, one of them may leap ahead of the pack, and move close to the very top of the draft....which may lead to increased trading to land "the guy" for your franchise.

    I also expect some Pass Rushers to wake up some folks, because just like QBs, these dudes have a huge role in the passing game. You have a passer and you have a passer stopper.

    Also, I feel that one or more Oliners will rise, given that a great Oline draftee is a prized possession, and is usually described as a safe bet, and one who can anchor your line for 10 or more seasons.

    And yes, then there's the athletic freaks and the studs whose skills shine brighter versus their competitors. Maybe a CB. Maybe a WR. Maybe an RB. Could be any position pretty much. But we all know who that guy is when we see them matched against the entire group.

    Looking forward to this part of the season! So much to learn, so much to assess, so much excitement in the air! And hopefully a few new starters for our Broncos, year one!!

    Iíll be interested to see how Nasir Adderley times in the 40, if he runs in the 4.4 range his stock will soar through the roof. Itís already going up from his play at the Senior Bowl which forced teams to go back and watch him. If he runs that fast he could be a top 10 pick as elite Safeties that can play centerfield are rare and extremely valuable to a defense. Not to mention he could play SS, can slide down and be a nickel corner, and gives you value on special teams as a gunner and return man.

    Some other guys that I expect to rise: Cody Ford, Jawaan Taylor, KeeSean Johnson, Zach Allen, Chris Lindstrom, Andy Isabella, Terrill Hanks, Josh Oliver

    Not sure who all will fall, probably some of these bigger WRs like NíKeal Harry and AJ Brown who probably wonít run great times. I think Jonah Williams will get dinged for his lack of length even though heís shown he can overcome that through excellent technique.

    Given that Kyler Murray is Daniel Jeremiah's highest ranked QB (in his Top 50) I would gather that Murray's stock is in a pretty good place, maybe getting better.

    As I post this, TD states that Arizona should draft Murray, because he's the dynamic type (like Mahomes) that can give their franchise a boost.

    Who might slide/be overdrafted?

    With all the talk about teams trading up, who do you think will be overdrafted, who might slide?

    Just a bit of fun.

    For me, Hockenson, and Metcalf will be overdrafted, along with almost every QB.

    Bosa and the Devin brothers will slide.

    That's my take, too. I kind of hope Ed Oliver will be there at #10, and the Broncos pick him.

    I think Murray will "slide" because I dont think GMs are as high on him as the fans

    He wonít slide because Kingsbury is high on him and I think the Gm will give him what he wants.

    But if itís a smokescreen and they take Bosa then I agree after that he will slide out of the top 10. I just think itís going to be #1.

    As for others I could see Lock sliding out of the first round when Elway for the second year in a row is in shock over a top 5 defensive player falling to us.

    Iím thinking Dexter Lawerence is going to drop. I think he should be a mid to late first but will fall to early to mid second round imo

    I think it is a media fabrication that KK is "high" on Murray. I think he will be the 3rd QB taken, behind Lock and then Haskins, at best.

    I don't think there's any way Lock falls out of the 1st. I get the feeling he is among the top 3 players overall on the team's big board. Probably after Bosa and Williams, but maybe ahead.

    Rising (in the last couple of months)....

    IMO.....

    Murray, Sweat, Lock, Oliver, White and Bush. Watch for a couple of the Oliners to rise, when teams realize they have a need to fill. Same goes for the top WRs, and possibly an RB or two.

    The Dliners/OLBs are not rising so much, given they were already there. Lots of Dbacks to choose from, so though not near the top this year, there will be plenty to choose from if a team wants one.

    Iíve heard several reports that no Gm except Elway believes he is a first round talent.

    I think you are right. I hope we take him if he does fall, unless we go DT first round.
