***The Denver Broncos trade #28 & #234 to the Buffalo Bills for #41, #105 and #177 ***



41 - Jamar Taylor CB (Boise State, Senior, 5'11, 192lbs, 4.39 40)
Tough, instinctual CB who isnt afraid to mix it up in the run game. He excels in man coverage and has strong hands to help make up for his size in press cover. He will become the eventual replacement to Champ. As I will say a few times in this mock, I am not a huge advocate of a CB with our 1st pick but I feel that it will happen.



58 - Corey Lemonier PR (Auburn, Junior, 6'3, 255lbs, 4.60 40)
We are in desperate need of a pass rush specialist and get just that here. Corey had a tremendous Sophomore season but flamed out last year, as did the whole Auburn team. He is an elite physical specimen who should make an impact on 3rd down immediately. Even if he never becomes a 3 down DE, you can never have too many pass rushers.



90 - Travis Frederick OC/OG (Wisconsin, Junior, 6'3, 312lbs, 5.58 40)
This guy's draft stock is all over the board, so dont shout at me just yet. He can go as high as mid 2nd round or fall to the early 4th, as his playing style limits him solely to a power blocking scheme. Regardless, we have little interior depth, have our starting OC coming off a season ender and are coming up on Beadles potentially demanding a huge deal. Frederick is versatile enough to play OC and OG but most importantly has that raw strength we lack in short yard situations.



105 - TJ McDonald SS (USC, Senior, 6'2, 219lbs, 4.59 40)
I really dont like this kid that much as a prospect, but I have a hunch that he ends up a Bronco. He has some serious upside, but needs to improve his awareness in the passing game. I think that the front office sees a big, fast Safety that can cover a TE as much of a need as we do so IMO thats why we are targeting McDonald. He will be a ST ace while he develops.



125 - Stepfan Taylor RB (Stanford, Senior, 5'9, 214lbs, 4.76 40)
He is pretty darn slow but has everything else. This offense requires its RB to pass block and catch, two things that Taylor excels at. He is a tough runner up the middle with a low center of gravity and a knack for falling forward. He wont break many big runs outside and struggles to accelerate through the second level but his skill set gives us what we need at RB.



161 - Aaron Mellette WR (Elon, Senior, 6'2, 217lbs, 4.54 40)
We have a very strong Wideout corps, but there are a number of questions. How long can Welker play? Will Decker get a huge contract offer from another team next year? What happens if one of our top 3 get injured? Aaron is a versatile WR who is capable of playing both inside and outside. His top trait is his route running, which is essential for this team. He is a team leader and hard worker who can develop as our #4 WR and eventually replace Welker in the slot or Decker outside if he gets overpaid.



177 - TJ Barnes NT (Georgia Tech, Senior, 6'6, 369lbs, 5.19 40)
We all know that the Front Office prefers mammoths in the middle. TJis a very raw prospect but has significant upside. He must work on technique, but has supreme athlecism for a man his size and the potential to be the type of DT that consistently demands double teams, opening up lanes for LB's to shoot up the middle and DE's to get single blocking.

I don't think Taylor makes it past Den, Atl, NE and SF in the first let alone selection number 40. Could happen but it's a dream scenario.

The rest of its GREAT! Perhaps the best mock I've seen.

Disturbing title???? Shocked Confused

I like Taylor, but everything I am hearing tells me he is gone tomorrow.

I like Lemonier, He has some ability and certainly could develop into a full time player.

Frederick would be OK too. Good depth and possible starter next year.

McDonald scares me like most other Trojan prospects. Physically looks the part, but sucks as a pro type guys come from that program.

Taylor is a good prospect, but not sure he can be what the Broncos need in a power back. Good at everything and great at nothing. Not a bad pick in late fourth.

I know nothing about the kid from Elon and can't say that I have studied Barnes either.

No point in picking a CB that early.

You don't only draft for this year, so yes there is a point to picking a CB that early. The problem is, Jamar Taylor will absolutely not last that long.

I love the picks. Absolutely LOVE them. But as others have already chimed in, a lot of picks you have us making likely won't still be around at those slots.

I think the two hopeful picks are Jamar Taylor and Travis Frederick. The rest are IMO very realistic.

I am convinced one of the top CB's will still be avaliable around #40. I just see one of Rhodes, Trufant, Milliner, Hayden and Banks falling to that area. Personally, I would rather draft Amerson and move him to FS than use the pick on Jamar but all signs point to CB.

Frederick is all over the board on most draft sites and IMO has a chance to be there in the 3rd.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I think Datone Jones and Corey Lemonier are the fastest DE. Lemonier seems to cause a lot of fumbles. Jones is a good tackler, he get the mitts on a player and doesn't let go.

The problem is you can't draft tomorrow unless you're set for today. We're still a pass rusher or two away from winning the superbowl.

We don't need two pass rushers, and while we may need one, this, once again, is the attitude that hurts teams and leads to unsuccessful drafts. If we are sitting there and a DE isn't the best option, we should absolutely not just take him.

Take the best player at a position of need. Period.

And there's not a doubt in my mind that that's exactly what Elway will do.

DPO keeps speculating SS could be a first round pick. If Cyprien or Reid are there, it seems logical that we take one.

Could live with Cyprien or Elam, for what it's worth I think our most pressing needs at DE, RB and Safety and that we have one of the best crops of CB's in the league already.

I can't see Cyprien making it to our pick and Reid is more of a FS like Rahim Moore I reckon.


Matt Elam, Eddie Lacy, Jamie Collins, Kevin Minter and Datone Jones are all guys I think we *might* pickup. But my personal choice, for the time being, would be something like Matt Elam and then a trade up in the second(using our third) to get a pass rusher, and then maybe Stepfan Taylor in the fourth.

I agree with the BPA at a position of need but in my opinion Corner isn't a need.

I don't disagree with this. I don't know if CB is likely, but I think they know something about how many years Champ wants to play more than fans do. Just speculation.

Anyway, I would say no to Elam. Not a big fan there. Would rather have Reid or wait for Rambo. Reid is definitely an SS though.

I believe he will at least play his contract out which is two more seasons. If we win the superbowl this year it may be a walk-off victory for him but I'm not convinced we won't keep him around for a run at back to back for Manning and Bailey before they retire together after two straight victories - ala Elway.

I read a while back that the cheapest time for Denver to get out of Manning's contract would be after the third year so I really think this team is gearing up for back to back superbowls(Last year was a dry run and getting to 13-3 #1 seed surpassed my own expectations).


The point I'm making is that whilst I'm all for drafting for the future, maybe not so much on the first two days of the draft, and besides, we might never get such a great window of opportunity for 25 years if not more. We have to be doing everything we can to improve our on the field line up NOW.
