    Just to add....Daniel Jeremiah has Reagor as one of five players who could break the combine 40 record...

    Reagor was an absolute home run hitter in the TCU offense. I have him just outside my top-50 big board, but he could generate some first-round buzz with his workout. He is going to post an incredibly impressive 40 time. He's been timed consistently in the mid-to-low 4.3s, and I expect him to be in that range on Thursday evening. He had some issues with dropped passes this past season, but his speed is very intriguing to a lot of teams around the league.

    I know some of us have talked about straight line speed, and that you need more than that to be a quality player, but speed is unteachable. Anyway, just a side note post.

    Robby Anderson is known for his speed, and he made some big-boy catches for the New York Jets in 2019. Playing 91.2 percent of the offensive snaps last season, Anderson was a reliable target for Jets quarterbacks. A quarter of Anderson's 52 catches went for 20-plus yards, including two that exceeded 40 yards. The 26-year-old wideout has registered at least five receiving TDs in each of his last three seasons and could be a relatively affordable deep threat for teams looking to stretch the field.

    But Reagor is the guy for me, I just love what he brings to the table. His speed is incredible, his ability to change direction without losing speed is the best in the class IMO, and he has a ridiculous vertical to high point passes. The drops are concerning but when I see him sky up and catch the ball at the highest point away from his body, I think the drops can be coached out of him. His route tree can be developed because he already shows great change of direction ability he just wasn’t asked to run routes in that offense.

    Sorry to add so many quotes but I do not want to leave anyone out. Because for me, we have a really nice situation ahead, if we need to draft an OT or even CB in round one. We sign Cooper....but more likely an Anderson, or even Perriman, and then go a guy like Aiyuk perhaps in round 2. We would be set at WR. Anderson and Aiyuk might be more speed than we need, but I do love a track meet!!

    I donít worry about his hands because that stems from looking up field too early, that will get coached out of him very early. While his actual route tree may be limited right now his potential as a route runner is astronomical. The big thing he does that puts him over Ruggs in my eyes is that heís very nuanced in his release which also leads me to believe that the route tree will come along nicely. But heís very good at forcing CBs into false steps when they try to press him and if they donít heís a terror on slant routes and screens when he looks the ball in.

    Ruggs really struggles against press coverage and LSU really highlighted that weakness. If I recall correctly he only had 1 catch against press coverage but it was a play where the QB had to buy time. There are ways around it but itís a big weakness in his game right now and I think beating press coverage is a lot harder to learn than looking a ball in or carrying your cuts from running with the ball into your route tree. Demaryius Thomas never quite figured it out and that was a big part of his decline in production as well as QB play. Also I think the differences in Ruggs route tree and Reagorís route tree are greatly exaggerated.

    it's looking like a WR is very likely in the 1st 2 rounds. They were talking on the radio today and they said that the Broncos interviewed 14 players at the combine. I thin it was 14 anyway, 5 or 6 each of WR and Oline.

    the Broncos have formally interviewed at least five receivers, five offensive linemen and one running back from the start of interviews Monday night through lunchtime Wednesday.

    The receivers: Colorado’s Laviska Shenault, Arizona State’s Brandon Aiyuk, Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III, and Texas Christian’s Jalen Reagor.

    The offensive linemen: Alabama tackle Jedrick Wills, Iowa tackle Tristan Wirfs, USC tackle Austin Jackson, Louisiana-Lafayette tackle Robert Hunt and Oregon guard Shane Lemieux.

    And just in case this sends mocksters into predicting the Broncos are going receiver or offensive lineman, or both, in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft, they also held a formal interview with Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins.

    If that is exactly what has happened so far, which I assume it is (though one never knows for sure if all the feedback is up to date), it mirrors what most of us predict could happen in the early part of The Draft.....although I think CBs and others will be talked to sooner or later.

    The theme here and everywhere I watch/read, is that this WR class might be the best in many, many years....so that is why it is not critical to me that we go WR early. Unless the drop-off is steep I would strongly consider round two. And though 3 is a little late, I have a hunch that we will see some success stories about WRs from 3 maybe 4.

    Fortunately, Oline is pretty solid as well, especially in round one, where there should be a handful of good ones going....meaning we will have a good shot at 15.

    Again....lets see how FA unfolds.

    If nothing else, I am very confident we will have a really good, rookie WR this season!

    JK Dobbins is a very good prospect. I hope we draft him in the 2nd if he lasts that long, or trade back to get him in the first. We'll need a replacement for Royce Freeman, and possibly even Phillip Lindsay who is not a natural pass catcher.

    I hope this draft goes qb and WR crazy. And we get the pick of the pieces left over.

    I just don’t like the idea of skill positions early when we need trench help on both sides.

    I share the desire to want to improve the oline but if the picks go a certain way a WR at 15 is not the end of the world.

    Broncos have 6 picks in the top 108 picks. As an example of the possibilities I was playing around with a mock draft yesterday and my picks were WR, OT, C, CB, RB, OT.

    That being said, I could just as easily see them pick an OT then taking a couple of the WRs later. Adding Pittman and Hamler in those first six picks for example would be a huge upgrade for the offense.

    Had Claypool in my mock as a 5th rounder, think he moved himself up to the 3rd round now. He profiles as a slot WR imo despite the height and speed. If looking for a big boundary guy opposite of Sutton, I like Isaiah Hodgins 4th or later.

    Duvernay is more track guy than WR imo. 40 time not surprising, but does not play that fast.

    Trade down and pick Laviska Shenault and Jalen Reagor?

    I believe there are 5 wide receivers in this draft that are top 10-15 in almost any previous draft. Another 3 or 4 that would be 1st rounders in any other draft.

    These receivers are weapons that don't grow on trees (are you listening Elway? lol)

    I think Laviska could be had in the early 20's of the 1st round.

    Why don't we trade down to a qb hungry team and pick up an extra 2nd while dipping down somewhere in the 20's with the first we swap.

    Than pick up Laviska Shenault with our traded down 1st and than do what it takes to move up and take Reagor. Reagor might drop to our 1st second round pick anyways after how he ran in the 40.

    Here we get two 1st round talents in any other draft while still having a 2nd round pick to draft Oline, CB or D.

    Can you imagine the speed and versatility we would have with:

    Drew Lock
    Sutton
    Reagor
    Shenault
    Fant
    Lindsay

    We would give Lock every weapon he could possibly need to match up with Mahomes and the Chiefs.
    How did I get so lucky at 8 years old to pick the Broncos as my favourite NFL team and 35 years later have them be the most successful winning franchise since I picked them

    I think itíd be the other way around. I canít see Viska going in the first now. A 4.58 40, unpolished WR who looks stiff IMO, and numerous nagging injuries throughout college. He might slip to the 3rd if he doesnít improve his time at his Pro Day.

    Reagor running a 4.47 wasnít expected but it isnít a terrible time. He still looks faster than that on tape. I do expect both to improve their times at their Pro Day however although I donít think Viska will match the 4.47 Reagor posted.
