Broncos Roster Evaluation

Steven Johnson

 

OLB/ILB

Kansas

Senior

6-1

238

Big 12 leader in tackles (124) in 2011. Also had 6 TFL.

N/A

I cannot see much on him. Looks he has a productive career. Looks to be another effort guy that would bring his attitude to training camp.

Elliot Coffey

ILB/OLB

Baylor

Senior

N/A

I can’t find any video on him and the only information I have is that he was injured. Not that much.

Jerry Franklin

ILB

Arkansas

R/Senior

6-1

241

All-SEC second team in 2011. His career stats atArkansas: 369 tackles, 31 TFL, 10 sacks, 14 PBU and 5 interceptions;  He’s an athletic and aggressive player that has not elite instinct for the play and has to do a much better job to shed blocks. He has some capability to drop in coverage but then is missing top speed to get back and make the play on the ball carrier. I think that he’s better suited to play in a 3-4 defense and would need 1 or 2 years of learning.

No

I can say that my evaluation on him was completely inaccurate, at least about which scheme he could fit. I though that some 3-4 team would draft him…nobody did. He played ILB and was pretty productive. Are the broncos bringing in him because the SOLB lack of depth. If I’m guessing right, he has a good shot on being in the 53 man roster on opening day.

Jamie Blatnick

DE

OklahomaState

R/Senior

6-3

263

All – BIG 12 first team in 2011. His career stats at Oklahoma Sate: 118 Tackles, 25 TFL, 16 sacks.

N/A

Could not find many videos of him apart one when he makes an amazing play jumping on top of the running back to sack Luck. Overall he looks to have had a productive career and will bring competition at DE spot in training camp and will be a good thing.

Mike Remmers

OT

R/Senior

2011: All-PAC 12 Honorable mention.

N/A

He’s one of the overall leaders for Started games at OSU.

Wayne Tribue

OG

Temple

Senior

6-3

329

 

N/A

The only information I found on him is from a professional analyst that I like a lot because he usually thinks out of the box. This is his impression on this prospect: “One of the most underrated offensive guard prospects in the nation. Is a solid athlete, can play low and with some time could fight for playing time”. It sounds really promising. I think this guy is a good Practice Squad candidate.

Anthony Miller

TE

California

Senior

6-3

254

He has effort issues. Could be really good both on pass catch and blocking areas but he is too much inconsistent, even in the profile videos…

FA

I don’t know if he’s the only character gambleDenveris taking this year or, most probably, my evaluation is wrong. The latter seems to be more likely.

Duke Ihenacho

S

San JoseState

R/Senior

6-0

213

He looks a little light for a SS even though he’s 6-1, 213 lbs. Has to do a better job on angles and shedding the blocks on running plays.

No

I was wrong again. Between all CFA at safeties, Denver FO thought that he could be a good training camp body. He’s probably a better special teamer that some I was proposing.

Gerell Robinson

WR

ArkansasState

Senior

6-3

227

This big guy needs to bulk up because he doesn’t look strong enough to catch in traffic with NFL talent defender constantly. Anyhow is undeniable that he can catch, even though he has some mental lapses at times, and he’s 6′ 3”. As CFA, I will take a chance on him, even though he’s now projected to be a 6th rounder……he he falls Denver should try to get him to see which kind of competition is able to provide in training camp.

FA

I was hoping forDenverto select one receiver in the Draft.Denverdid not but instead pick him and Page in FA. Since I agree with the 5th and 6th round selectionsDenverdid, I think that these two player gave good values and are capable to fight for a roster spot in training camp. They could be easily drafted.

Coryell Judie

CB/PR/KR

TexasA&M

R/Senior

6-0

194

Also a good kick returner. He has a thick frame and looks really athletic. Was use a lot in zone coverage and shows willing to tackle the run plays. Suffers covering bigger WRs. Could be used as depth and special team returner.

FA

I think he’s the CFA with the most chances of making the team becauseDenverneeds a reliable special team returner and depth at CB.

Aaron Brewer

LS

N/A

Competition at Long Snapper position? This guy has to be good for having a team as the Broncos picking him up.Denverhas already a good long snapper….it will be an interesting and unfamiliar competition.

Eric Paige

WR

Toledo

Junior

5-9

186

Great rout runner; has good speed and is a great returner. I don’t think he’ll be the same successful in the NFL as he has been in college, but he’ll find a way to produce. Underrated.

5th – 6th

Since I agree with th 5th and 6th round selectionsDenverdid, I think that this two player gave good values and are capable to fight for a roster spot in training camp. They could be easily drafted.

N/A

He was, together with Osweiler, the only prospect that is actually on the roster after visiting the Broncos headquarter in the evaluation process.
