I like the Elam pick, but I really don't see him starting over either Moore or Adams. Not that either are great safeties, but I don't think Elam is ready to start this year. Next year, yes, but this year I see him as a ST starter and back-up.

That being said, I think the Hopkins pick is horrible. He's not necessarily a bad player, and I think he might be a good player in the NFL eventually. I understand the BPA strategy, and feel that it is the best way to build a team, but at best he would finish his 4 year rookie contract as a 3rd receiver, and he won't even see that for the next two years.

It would be like the Colts drafting Geno Smith if he were to fall to them. Would he be the best player? Yes. But it would be a waste.
I just don't understand your thinking. The Broncos are going to be running an even faster offense this year with 3 and even 4 wide sets. Hopkins will get plenty of use as Decker Thomas and Welker cannnot play every down this year. Last year we saw Matt Willis take a good number of sanps in releif of Decker Thomas and Stokley. Hopkins will do the same with some actual results instead of a empty player on the field.

If anyone watched Clemson play this year, they would know what type of talent DeAndre Hopkins is. The way he filled in for super-star Sammy Watkins this season, tells me he is going to be a real steal in the draft. I was very happy to learn that we brought him in for an interview at the combine then hosted him at DV. An excellent player that got overshadowed by Sammy Watkins, who is arguably a top-5 pick when he comes out.

From someone who absolutely despises Clemson football, I must agree. We were pretty pumped when Watkins was neutered this year (sad, but true) and then here comes DeAndre Hopkins. The kid is good. People need to get off the "immediate impact" wagon. I guarantee if we draft a WR in Rounds 1 or 2 he will contribute to this team.

Ihe "immediate" part is way overblown. Even the DP used "Immediate impact" in a headline refering to Elways approach. If you read the article, "immediate" never comes out of his mouth.
