1[28]Jonathan Cyprien S 6-0 217 Florida International
To me Cyprien is the best safety in a good year at the position. He won't be taken first, but I think there is a good chance the Broncos will have a shot at him. He can do so many things. He makes plays deep in the secondary and can attack the line of scrimmage. He plays very fast and aggressive. Watching him the Senior Bowl was very impressive. His game against Louisville displayed good range and good awareness. The Bronos haven't drafted a safety other than Rahim Moore and Eric Brown in the first two rounds since Steve Atwater. From what I have seen, Cyprien could be the next great Bronco safety.

2[58]Ryan Swope WR 6-0 205 Texas A&M
I know, I know we have Wes Welker to play the slot. That doesn't mean you don't draft the next great NFL slot receiver to take his place. That's what Swope is. He has the quicks, speed, and smarts to be a lethal weapon. I expect more 4 WR looks from the Broncos this year. Swope and Welker inside with Decker and Thomas outside would be unstoppable with Manning pulling the trigger.

3[90]Brandon Jenkins DE 6-3 251 Florida State
His injury and combine performance have hurt his stock. Watching his 2010 and 2011 games erased all negativity in my mind. Jenkins will never be an every down DE because he just can't stand up to the big blockers. He will also never be a great OLB due to his speed. He does however have the fastest jump off the snap of any pass rusher in this draft. His burst is what makes him such a great pass rusher. He also has that ability to dip and get underneath the blocker. Jenkins could be a steal in the third.

Broncos trade 4[125] to eagles for 5[136] and 6[196]
Giving up 11 spots for an extra pick worth it in this draft.

5[136]David Quessenbery G/T 6-5 302 San Jose State
Athletic and strong. Scouts raved about his versatility at the Senior Bowl. May be gone by early 5th, but at this stage you truly never know. The Broncos need quality depth on the line and Quessenbery can provide that at multiple spots.

5[161]Lonnie Pryor RB/FB 5-11 229 Florida State
Pryor isn't what most people would call ideal feature back material. He is slow and he played FB in college. I don't think that matters in the pros. The most decorated Bronco back in history (TD) ran a 4.7 at the combine. He made his mark on ST's and blocking in training camp. To me Pryor is very similar to Davis only a little bigger. He can do everything as well as being a good runner. Pryor will be a great addition just in terms of his pass protection. I'm not a fan of the "top prospects" at running back this year, but I do like Pryor and how his game translates to the NFL and the Broncos offense.

6[196]Chris Jones DT 6-2 302 Bowing Green
I love sleeper prospects and Jones is a good one. Jones is a great interior pas rusher. He can do it from the 1 tech to the 5 tech. He has great hands and superior leverage. His rip and swim move is tough for blockers becasue he maintains that great leverage. He would be a nice addition to the DT's we have on our roster.

7[234]Cameron Marshall RB 5-11 215 Arizona State
While studying Brock Osweiler videos I cam accross this Marshall kid. He gets little to no love from the draftniks's, but I think he is a good back. He has decent speed and nice power. He also dispalys soft hands and open field ability. Like Pryor he is a very adept blocker in the passing game.

Aside from me thinking it is too early for Swope, i wouldn't have a problem with it.

I'm just not a big fan of drafting purely slot receivers that early. Since Welker has made it big in the NFL how many players are tabbed as the next Wes Welker in the SLOT? and how many of them have actually done anything at the NFL level? Honestly, none have even come close.

Fair point, but I just see a very polished player with great measureables. I also see a guy who loves to play the game and works hard at it. I am going out on a limb here, but Swope could outproduce every receiver in this draft in the NFL.

I don't have a problem with that and don't think him being incredibly productive is impossible. I like Swope, i noticed him last year with Tannehill at QB.

I am also not saying you are wrong, i've just noticed ever since about the time McDaniels left Denver that it seems every prospect that is considered a slot receiver gets hyped as the next Welker and it has yet to happen. Swope could very well be incredibly productive in Denver, but i just always devalue players whom i see as only truly being effective in the slot...for right or wrong.

I think this draft would be good.

My goals for the draft:
1) depth at WR
2) pass rush specialist
3) DT rotation
4) RB rotation

By the way, if the the Broncos keep their current picks, here's the salary cap requirements:

One, we also drafted Willie Middlebrooks in the first round who was a bust. Two, that is too high for Swope not because he can't be the next great slot receiver because he can be. The problem I have is his concussion history he has had 4 in college so I wouldn't touch him until the 4th.

To go with bobdevine's post, i too think DT depth is also a need. Currently Denver has Vickerson/Knighton as the only DT's i feel comfortable with. I like Unrein, but his role is as a situational player and Siliga still hasn't shown a whole lot. I know that both Wolfe and Jackson are considered tweener type players, but i really think Denver could be in trouble should one of Vickerson/Knighton go down with an injury.

I think Swope can be much more than a slot guy.

At times this year, he was lined out in a tradition X setting. Some of his biggest catches (Alabama and Oklahoma) were when he lined up outside in a single WR set. My belief is that he much more capable of playing outside then people are giving him.

We love to sign former Jaguars, maybe we'll just add C.J. Mosley now that the Jaguars have strangely cut him. He played fairly well when I was unlucky enough to watch the boring Jaguars.

I'd be fine with it. I didn't pay much attention to the Jaguars, but if he can be a better early down player than what Denver has as depth already on the roster i am all for it.

I wouldn't be opposed to bringing Bannan back for the veteran minimum. He had a decent year last year.
