So next years FAs (including ours) is a lot more interesting look than the draft for me.

    If you are looking at a 2 year window of VM and Chubb, then adding Wagner and Grady Jarrett on defense (expensive) may be the way to go. Of course they need to make it to FA 1st. In a situation like this, I would also consider trading the 1st for a guys that fills another hole on his rookie deal, but who knows who may be available via trade.

    Point being, if Lock supplants Flacco, you need to maximize the chance to get as much veteran talent around the inexpensive QB as you can.
    Leary and Flacco being cut, saves around 28.5 million, OTC without the draft class in, has Denver at 61 million, project 5-6 for the draft picks, and it's around 80+ in cap with those two moves.

    But Denver also has alot of free agents that could/would take up some of that money. Like McGovern, CHJ, Parks, Simmons, Gotsis, Wolfe, Shelby. But even if you re-sign 4-5 of those, Denver is still set up pretty well to add in free agency.

    I'm curious to see the battle between Leary and Sam Jones. Ive heard some positive stuff about him, and he's been doing the off-season workouts with McGovern and Risner. I think that battle could be closer than some think this year.

    I just wish Elway would draft a stinking ILB for once. Maybe after the turds on our roster stink it up again this year he will wake up and see we badly need one.

    Joe Dineen will be a hit. I'm with you, for years I pick whatever UFA it is that year to be the one. So Dineen it is this Year. Hes got this.

    I don't think we badly need one. What we need is a lber that can cover well

    Due to the current negotiation status with CHJ, Its gotta be CB is the 1st or 2nd.

    He didnít start and yet still received all big 10. I believe he had the most sacks in the league. A senior who was a 4 year starter was ahead of him and played the run well took a lot of his snaps away. But he should get close to or even surpass 15 sacks this year.

    His size plus athleticism looks special. He does not move or bend like a 6'6 280 ilb man.

    You don't need special CBS with our defense and pass rush. All you need is average CBS who play zone well which can be found later in the draft shoring up our te coverage and adding an interior pass rusher taking Walker or Jones doesnt step up will help out more then new CBS I feel

    AJ Epenesa would be interesting. His Body type is perfect for a 3-4 DE. He could be an anchor in the run game with major plus pass rush from a 3-4 DE.

    Problem is he saw limited time at Iowa so far on 1st and 2nd down because he isnít great against the run. Hopefully he improves in that area. His potential at the 5 Tech is phenomenal but has a long ways to go.

    i still think he is a pipe dream. he is a very athletic 6'6' 285 pound dE. he is gonna go high and he will be coveted as an edge rusher as much a 3-4 DE. either way i don't see him being open when we draft unless we have a disapointing season

    My draft wish list is:
    (Predicting with '19 order)

    R1: Offensive Line
    Andrew Thomas (Jr.) > Walker Little, (Jr.) > Trey Adams, will work.

    Initially, I thought a destructive DL in R1, but decided on solidifying the OL for Lock.

    LT Andrew Thomas
    LG Garrett Bolles (on 5th Yr. option)
    OC Sam Jones
    RG Dalton Risner
    RT Ja'Waun James

    R2: DB Trevon Diggs, Alabama
    A WR turned CB in Saban's defense could ease Harris' potential departure.

    CB Chris Harris Jr. (UFA) / Kareem Jackson
    CB Trevon Diggs / Isaac Yiadom
    NB Bryce Callahan
    DB Justin Simmons (UFA) / Trey Marshal (ERFA) / Dymonte Thomas (RFA)
    DB William Parks (UFA) / Su'a Cravens

    Round 3A: WR/R K.J. Hill, Ohio State
    Speedster with return abilities could ease Sanders' potential departure.

    Emanuel Sanders (UFA)
    Courtland Sutton
    K.J. Hill
    Daesean Hamilton
    Juwann Winfree
    Tim Patrick

    R3B: OL Jon Runyan, Michigan
    Swing tackle who also provides insurance for Bolles.

    And, that's all I got.

    if we pick high enough it would be a mistake not to look into this QB class. there are 3-4 people that can be franchise qbs.

    We need DE's next offseason. Expect either Wolfe or Gotsis to be gone. Epenesa would be an amazing get

    i really like what i hear about D. walker and D. Jones i think they may be our future at DE. if we can get gotsis and walker moving forward for a little. it could be scary. what we are gonna be weakest on is ilb and a coverage ilb to be specific.

    plus Epenesa may be an olb in our defense his best talent is edge rushing over run stuffing.
