    Question Defensive Tackle Situation

    Am I the only one who is a little worried about our situation at DT? After Warren and Myers we have Veal and a handful of unknowns. I still think Myers is better as a good number 3 in a rotation. It would be nice to at least have some competition there. The thing is the deepest postion left in free agency is DT. The one name that keeps sticking out to me is Brenston Buckner. I just think he would look good next to Warren and compliment him well. Buckner has a few years left. He is a great locker room guy and has a high motor. If Warren goes down what do we have really? What do you all think?

    firstly... welcome....

    and although a similar topic has already been disscussed earlier...

    i agree...

    and chances r... is that if we dont get a rb for lelie... it will be a DT or someone in the front 4....

    Thank you for the welcome. Bronco fan here stuck in Iraq and I dont get to check out the board all the time and finally decided to get in on the action. I looked but did not see any threads on the DT position and that is the one area I am really concerned with. I just cannot understand why they have not addressed this area yet. Well I guess we shall see. If Warren goes down the team of Myers and Veal just does not sound all that great. Thanks again

    I was hoping that we would draft a D-tackle in either the first or second round. However, that did not come to pass.

    This looks to me to easily be the weakes position on the team nest year even barring injuries. I guess we will have to play ostrich and bury our heads in the sand.

    I agree we could use a better quality in front of Myers but I don't think Buckner would be the answer. Buckner might have a few years left in him I have doubts about it.

    Thumbs up Faith.....

    There are three months before the beginning of the real season, so alot of changes can occur in that time. IF the coaches see the need for a drastic improvement at the DT position, then something will happen. After all the whining and complaining about the preseason trades and free-agency pickups last year, of which most worked out well, have a little faith in the team to solve their problems. I would like to see a trade involving Lelie to get a quality DT. There will be more options with cuts and injury-forced changes on teams. I know it is somtimes a dirty word, but patience is the word.

    Denver has a decent three man shift in Warren, Myers and Veal (who played pretty well last season). Maybe another unknown, like Veal last year -- will step up and be a nice addition to the roster. I think the team is hoping Dumervil can be a jack-of-all-tradesmen type lineman, being able to play underneath and on the rush end side, so we have depth at each position.

    I do think it's a big question mark though. Denver passed on some solid defensive tackles, and I was flabbergasted when they took Hixon over Orien Harris in the fourth round when he was still there.

    Lucky for us, the defensive line class in '07 looks pretty solid, and there are already some great inside prospects that look like sure-fire first rounders. Maybe, just maybe this year -- my prayers and many other Broncos faitfhul's will be answered.
