2017 NFL Draft, my final own armchair Broncos Big Board


PLAYER POS. POS. RANK SCHOOL CLASS HT. WT. PROJ. ROUND My grade
Myles Garrett DE 1 Texas A&M Jr 6’4” 268 1st Has some serious speed and acceleration and some quickness (although not super flashy) at the snap. Shows great power and lower body strength in bull rush and very good speed rush skills. Not really fluid while running in open field. Looks to have room for gaining weight, strength and power especially on the upper body. Not the quickiest first steps for a top 5 pick. 1st I think that he does not looks to be as a surefire first pick overall and even a top five pick all in all. Will have to develop his body and his way of playing to be consistently effective in the Pros.
I think he could be a situational pass rusher as a rookie in both 4-3 and 3-4 scheme and after bulking up and becoming more powerful he might have better potential as 3-4 DE. Still a top 16 pick in a talented draft migh be one of the top picks in this draft that might lack top end talent.
Jonathan Allen DT 1 Alabama Sr 6’3” 291 1st Strong and aggressive, plays really physically and keep his mototr running. Has some quickness in his first steps but lacks ideal height. Double teamed in college will have to learn to stay low and use his burst to be a consistent penetrator in the Pros. Shows strength and power to play at the next level as a starter in day one. 1st – top 10 He might be the best Dlineman prospect  for team running the 3-4 scheme. He’s quickness ante the snap, power and strength could let him play as DE or NT. I think he could have less potential than Garrett but is much more ready to play right away in the pros and could enjoy having a surprising producting year as a rookie since probably he will face less double teaming than in college. Solid top 10 pick.
Solomon Thomas DE 2 Stanford rSo 6’2” 275 1st Lack a bit of height to the ideal size, will need to learn to place his hands better in order to take leverage against Olinemen.  Has very good power and strength combined with very good lateral movement. Has some quickness especially in delayed rushes and plays hard with good motor. 1st To me is more of a Dlineman than an edge, even tough he has some quickness that could let him become also an edge rusher in the 4-3 scheme. His strength and lateral movement could make him a very good defender in the NFL if he could overcome his lack of size that could make him a aliability against bigger and more powerful Olinemen in the Pros. Still a very good 1st rounder.
Malik Hooker FS 1 Ohio State rSo 6’2” 205 1st Great size, very good range playing as deep S. Inconsistent at times with his tackling angles. Little bit more confused whan playing underneath: has some tendency in overrun a bit the play and misplaces himself.  Rumors reports that he had surgeries and will not be ready to workout before the draft will come. 1st Only one year starter that made the most out of it, played hard showed great instinct as ball hawk and plays physical against the run. At times overrun the play but good coaching might help in that regard. I’m not concerned about his surgeries becasue the same rumors that report that he won’t be able to work out before that draft they also inform that he played part of the 2016 season with those injuries, and he played well against Michigan and Clemson, showing, if nothing, toughness. If he’s there at 20th overall and the Broncos doctors gave the grreen light he migh have too much talent to be passed even tough the Broncos drafted 2 safeties last year. He could become an elite FS in the NFL, given the time to adjust to the power and the speed of the game.
Dalvin Cook RB 1 Florida State Jr 5’11” 206 1st Very fast runner that has homerun speed when hits the open field. Could be more pacient when receiving the snap, when the hole is not there could do a better job grinding out another way to get some yards. Has some goods receiving skills and his speed could be used as a bog weapin in the passing game. Still has to get better in his body placement as a receiver out of the backfield. Very elusive, has teh speed to make several guy miss the tackles. Not a tackles breaker. Unstoppable on open field. 1st – top 10 There is no doubt that he could become a very special player in the NFL, but for that to happening he’ll need to end up on a NFL team that has a good Oline unit that will be able to open some holes that he’ll hit fast and once on the second level he will find a way to make defender miss tackles. Behind the Broncos 2016 Oline he would have been a total bust. How good will be Denver Oline in 2017? I won’t draft him in the 1st round if I don’t think I’m able to open some home for him, not because he does not have elite talent, which he does have, but because his talent in nowaday NFL is not usable if not combined with some good Oline play. He also will have to get better as a blocker and as a pass catcher. If the Broncos could improve their Oline in FA and he’ll be there at 20th overall (between the two the latter is the less probable to happen) they can think on take him. I just think he’s not worth to trade up for because of Denver poor Oline. He won’t be there at 20th overall and if, the Broncos could be very interested on trading down because some team could offer a lot to get him. 20170305 UPDATE: I have to retify: he has patience and vision. Still would have not had a great year behing Denver Oline, but for sure he’s one of the best talent in his draft. If for any reason he pass the 15th oevrall, the Broncos should trade up to get him. APRIL UPDATE: I had him as a top 10 pick grade for the Broncos. After the combine there are question about the people he surround himself and anbout injuries. I won’t lower the pick to 1st because of the injuries issue, cannot say anything about the charactr concerns. The Broncos met with him at the Combine, I’m sure that if they have him on the board they will have an high draft pick.
Jamal Adams SS 1 LSU Jr 6’0” 211 1st Superfast and athletic, looks a bit smaller than his measurement. Looks to be always around the ball and plays often reading the QB eyes. Has very good football instinct and hits hard in run support. Does not look to have room to bulk up 1st I don’t think the Broncos will look for a S, but a new HC in town there is no such thing as job security. This said I think Adams plays like a true 1st rounder (thought top ten pick is a bit too much) but I have doubt on his size and his ability to take the toll in the NFL from the day 1. He might have the speed and the change direction and all the athletic ability but S is a physical demanding position in the NFL and he might need to wait a bit, backing up and play as gunner in ST for then taking over with a more NFL ready body. In this scenario he might become the new TJ Ward, which was selected in the second round with great instinct and able to make plays. If he’ll fall to 20th overall he might be too good to be passed up even if the Broncos are loaded at the moment at the position.
Reuben Foster ILB 1 Alabama Sr 6’1” 236 1st Fast and atheltic linebacker. Really quick in reading the play and reacting to it. Has the skills to be side to side LB in the NFL. Will need to bulk up a bit in order to be able to assorbe the hits and tackles in the Pros. Will also need to become more powerful. 1st – top 20 It’s always complicate to evaluate film on Alabama’s prospects because it’s not easy to understand if a success of one of the players is due to his skills or to the skills of the others plyers around him. Was Foster very good against ethe run because of his fast read and reaction and his football instinct or because he was playing a mountain of a DLine for the college ranks? Was he good in his side to side hustle because of his athletic skills or because disruption at the LOS obliged opponent QBs to take more time before to throw the ball to the RB? Inaccurancy and not being good at targets reading was the reason why he wasn’t challenged that much in passing coverage or the latter hasn’t ahppened because he was a strenght in that regard? In my opinion since he looks to be very good in run stopping, he looks to be very good in covering the RB and screens plays and looks to be one of the flowless coverage LB in his class, he deserve to be a top 15 pick. He lacks the ideal size and maybe even power and therefor I would not say he’d be a lock at top 10 selection in a most elite talented draft. But this draft lacks of this top end prospectsa and so he could be chosen in the top 10. If he’d be still on the board coming pick 20th, the Broncos will select him (barring character concerns or injury reports that are not discoled jjust before the combine). He could really compete with Todd Davis by day one and has tegh potential to become one of the best ILB in the NFL playing in the Denver Broncos 3-4 all aggressive scheme. APRIL UPDATE: a part having a quarrel with an health assistant at the Combine he had a medical re-check which results says that his injuries might need another surgery. I’m not really scared by that, he played through it and worked out in his Pro day. But, unfortunately, on top of that, a report camen informing that he did not pass the sustance abusing test because of diluted sample. Maybe here there is one reason of concern too much. I start to have doubt on the Broncos having him completely out of the Board. I has him with a 1st – Top 20 grade, but I’m downgrading it to 1st: I’m sure the concerns would make other 1st rounder a preferrable pick in the 1st round than him or at least a comparable pick to be talked off if he’s still there when the Broncos will select. I don’t think Denver FO will trade up for him anymore.
Mike Williams WR 1 Clemson rJr 6’3” 225 1st Tall and auper athletic, played basketball nad shows a lot of body-control. Does not run very complicated routs and block some but could not hold the opponent for much. Has rare speed for a player of his size and knows how to use his body to defend teh ball ot to get the catch. Had some drops. No Quite difficult prospect to evaluate with a Broncos point of view. As a prospect he should be a 1st rounder, in top end talent populated drafts he should be selected around pick 20 and the end of round one. Too much potential to pass up when selecting with those picks. IMO he does not showcase elite talents to be a top ten pick, which easily he’ll be in this 2017 draft, because although the potential, he is not as dominant as he cpuld be and he eclipse himself at time. Plus, could he run more difficult routs to break free from sneacky NFL CBs? Can he block steadily on CB and/or S? I would not want the Broncos to trade up for him and I would have hard time to understand Broncos FO using the 20th overall pick on him. If he’d be there I would prefer the Broncos to trade down if any other higher ranked prospect on their board is available. So my grade is: No, although I think that in the right situation Mike Williams could become a dangerous weapon.
Leonard Fournette RB 2 LSU Jr 6’1” 230 1st Has great size for a RB and a very fluid run style. For a big runner as him, he has pretty shifty moves and lots of quickness in getting the second gear. Has good patience at the LOS for find a hole to hit. Has problems when no hole is there and cannot find where it could come, gets stuck and could generate negative yardage trying to escape coming defensers. Very dangerous after hitting the hole having remarckable speed for his size bit also knows how to use his body to break tackles and more important has great body balance. Has injury concerns, especially with his anckles. Can be a liability in blocking in the NFL. Has good pass catching skills out of the backfield. 1st He reminds me of a much bigger and a bit faster CJ Anderson and of a more talented Booker. I think Denver is looking for a fast, quick and shifty running back to complement Anderson and Booker. He’d add more talent in the same categories that are already sufficiently covered by Anderson and Booker. He has 1st round talent but between the injury concerns and the depth at his skills I think that the Broncos might have others players rated ahead of him. I would’t want them to trade up for him. Would he be there at 20h overall (imporbable) they should seriously think at selecting him, depending who else is available too.
Marshon Lattimore CB 1 Ohio State rSo 6’0” 195 1st Good size, thought not great. Really fast and quick in reacting to plays and very good in run support. Still has to improve in shedding blocks and is not as physical as he could be at being 6’0” corner and around 200 pounds. Looks to be very good in man coverage although suffered at times with bigger and taller WR in college. 1st – Top 10 I think Denver is looking for another talented corner to be added to the roster, so I won’t be shocked if Broncos FO would select a CB in the first round. This said Lattimore is penciled, in the pre-combine process, as the best CB prospect of the 2017, so is quite improbable he’d be available at 20th. He plays at times less physical than what Denver usually looks for, he’s more a finesse CB with great talent and good potential too. Nevertheless I do see him be the most complete CB in this class with great athletic skills and coverage and also able to be resolute coming up in run defense.
O.J. Howard TE 1 Alabama Sr 6’6” 249 1st Incredible size. Great athleticism for a guy that tall. Good strenght and very good play execution. Very good blocker in the running game and in the passing game. Looks to continue and finishe his block even if the play is developing far from his field position. Looks to have a real sense on his assignment with line movements and routs. Has goods hands. Looks to have room to bulk up and get even stronger. Has good quickness and turn the corner quite well for his size. Complete package at TE. 1st – top 10 I think the Broncos will have him really high and will have to trade up to select him. He’s so talented and still has so much potential as NFL 3 downs TE that could be one of the 5 best prospects in the 2017 Draft. Does a TE go in the top 5? Usually not. Could he? Yes. The Broncos desperatly need to find a real three down TE that could be a reliable target on critical downs: on third downs and in the end zoen. But also he would provide great help at blocking both at LOS and lines up as eligible receiver. TE is not a sexy position to select in the top 10 but he’s a top five and fit also one of the biggest need for the Broncos. Hauerman and Darby are still projects and Green looks to me as a very reliable nº2 TE but lacks something to be a true nº1. Howard looks to have everything to be a true nº1 from day 1.
Mitch Trubisky QB 1 North Carolina rJr 6’3” 220 1st Good but not great size. Lacks elite arm strength. Has good but not great accurancy. Needs to improve his pocket awareness and his footwork. Needs to learn to make more reads on his receivers and to recognze defensive formations faster. Does have quite good success throwing on the run and looks poised after receiving hits. Looks more anxious when under pressure from the defense but is able to scramble when the pocket brakes down. Only one year starter. 1st – 2nd I think he’s interesting because has good size and looks to be a complete package as far as physical skills. But on the other hand he’s not totally accurate neither is the coldest QB under pressure and his pocket presence has to improve for playing in the NFL. He would have to sit and be the backup for a couple of years and learn under a very good QB coach. He then could become a top 10 starting QB.  Unfortunatly in a QB needy league he may be a top 10 or even top 5 pick and if forced to start as a rookie it may be a David Carr story all over again. I still think thta his abilities and his potential make him a 1st round QB even if he started only one year and does not scan the field as he will have to do in the NFL. As I mentioned, his success will depend on the time he will be given to sit and learn from a seasoned veteran. How he would fit with the Broncos? I don’t think the Broncos will select another QB, at least high in the draft after taking Lynch in the 1st round in 2016. Still eventually he’s much more ready to play han Lynch was ine year ago. He would be behing incumbent starter Siemian and could have 2 years for learning from him. He could succeed and I would have more confidence in him than in Lynch.
Jabrill Peppers SS 2 Michigan rSo 6’0” 205 1st Athletic and explosive when performing returns. Really fast in read and react at the LOS, very good instinct and play at the LOS and un run support. Has to do a better job in coverage. Has a good size but need to get stronger for delivey or absorbing hits in the NFL. 2nd I think that ha has to learn to be better in coverage, aldo does not look to have blazing and lateral speed. He run fast and looks to be explosive and he’s really shifty that makes him a really good returner specialist. I didn’t see enough of him as a S to think he could be a good option for the Broncos at 20th overall. In the second round he could be really useful for the Broncos, primarily as a returner and by time and work he may develop in a good S. APRIL UPDATE: He tested positive for sustance abusing because of diluted sample. I had a 2nd round grade and I’ll maintain. If he’s addicted to cannabis or other drugs surely the Broncs already know and erased him from their Board. I still think he’s not a 1st round pick but he provides great value in the retirning game and as backup at SS. 2nd round grade.
Ryan Ramczyk OT 1 Wisconsin rJr 6’5” 314 1st He has good size for modern T in the NFL and looks to take good blocking angles. Lacks elite strength and power, could anchor better and use better his hands. Looks to be a better pass protector than a run mauler 3rd He has some question to answer abouy why transferring from college to college so many times. Apart that he’s not a finished product, he will have to become stronger and more powerful, gaining drive and will have to be more consistent in the running game. Even thought the Broncos, pre FA edition, have a major need in upgrade theis OLine, I don0t think he should be picked in the first round. In the second he’ll be a very good pick, still I don’t see him ready to start right away in the NFL. 14th February UPDATE: he had hip surgery and won’t be able to work out. I downgrade his Broncos value to 3rd round because of the injury concerns.
Teez Tabor CB 2 Florida Jr 6’0” 201 1st He has good size and elite athleticism. Looks to have the speed to go with number 1 receivers and the change direction skills and instinct to go with number 2. Loks to have little room to bulk up and is not the most physical corner. Lacks explosion to be have great range in pursuit. Good awareness. Has some off the field concerns. 1st – 2nd He lacks the physicality the Broncos like on their corners. If Talib is retained I don’t see the Broncos going with a CB in the 1st round unless their enamored with the prospect. From the videos I saw Tabor has enormous talent and it just may be that the Broncos would rate him as top 15th pick talent wise and 1st rounder discounting the lack of ferocious physicality. This said he’s not shy on contact, he’s just more of a finess CB in college. Very instinctive, fast and smooth cover corner but lacks some natural explosion.
Corey Davis WR 2 Western Michigan Sr 6’3” 213 1st Great size for a WR, looks to have room to get a bit bigger. Has good change directions skills, looks to run good routs and to be quite physical both at catching and in the running game. Quite complete. Lacks elite speed to stretch the field consistently. Has great athleticism and is able to make acrobatic cathes and use well his body to shield the ball. 1st He looks to me more as possession WR and a solid Nº1. Lacks the speed to be a burner but his athleticism and toughness could let him gain some yards after the catch and break some tackles too. An upgrade at WR3 for the Broncos for sure because he blocks quite well for the college ranks and is a complete player. He would be a great pickup but the position is not a need at all and a lot of monet is already tied up on the starters. Because of that I would not be very happy if the Broncos would take him at 20th overall but if he’d be the best player available I would take it.
Derek Barnett DE 3 Tennessee Jr 6’3” 265 1st Has great size for a 4-3 DE which could be his perfect position in the NFL. Looks to be a complete prospect, powerful and with speed. Lacks at time quick first steps that would gain some better positioning against double teams and look a bit letargic in some plays. Still able to make big plays both in the pass rush and againts the run, where several team where consistently running away from him. No I think that he may be a work in progress for a 3-4 team. He lacks just a bit of size to become a 3-4 DE as a rookie and may never be. On the other side he has good height for a 3-4 OLB but is not fast enough and his change of directions are not fast enough. I see him as a solid 1st rounder for a 4-3 team.
Zach Cunningham OLB 1 Vanderbilt rJr 6’3” 230 1st Great height and power. Has the frame to put up more muscles. Has some real quickness at the snap but his play is quite inconsistent. Lacks elite short step quickness and change of direction. Still when on, can make big plays and have very good acceleration so that could be used in blitzes. Not bad in coverage but has some tackling technique deficiency and looks to often try to tackle the opponent too high, alomost by the opponent shoulders. Has good speed for a ILB but lacks the speed to cover a RB when alligned as WR. 1st – 2nd I think Denver is priming speed and quickness ta the ILB position. He has that and also has a great frame to get more powerful and stronger, which he’ll need. Has the size to play against the TEs but lacks the speed and quickness to stay with RB. His inconsistency in reading the play and/or positioning himself could be a big question mark in the NFL. He looks to be still a work in progress and I would not be happy if the Broncos would select him at 20th overall, I would prefere to get a more sure tackler eevn with a smaller size a bit later in the draft or trading down around 25th-27th and there he could be targeted.
John Ross WR 3 Washington rJr 5’11” 190 1st Smaller type of receiver: has enough thick body, he’s quick in short area movement and he’s fast and has speed. Run very good routes and is able to break free using technique and not also quickness and speed. Is not the most explosive 2nd or slot receiver. Played mainly the outside routes but looked good in cross routs too. Willing to place a block in bothrunning game and sreen plays. Has to get stronger to be able to sustain a block in the NFL and in order to absorb NFL defenders hits. 1st He clearly is a 1st round talent, had some drops but made a tons of big plays by his own. My doubt is more about if Denver is willing to test him as slot receiver because he loos to be a similar player to Sanders: a speedy and shifty nº2 receiver more than a slot receiver. I’m not sure he could costantly play the slot, given the body punishment that brins the position. Still I cannot deny Ross talent.
DeShone Kizer QB 2 Notre Dame rSo 6’4” 230 1st Looks to be a bit oversized. Has very good release and ball speed. Is able to read a bit the coverage and go through targets progression. Still have a good but not great arm. A statue in the backfield, his pocket presence is not good enough for the NFL standard and if started as a rookie he could be sacked countless times. Has to do a better job at geeting rid of the football and scrambling to give more time to Wr to get open at times. Does not good a good job when pressured. 2nd – 3rd I kind of like his poise, looks to be a true QB. Still looks to be oversize and not fit, which could be a problem if my eyes aren’t wrong and does aa bit of everything right but he’s really not dynamic on one hand and on the other is pocket awareness is just not there and really struggles under pressure. a late 2nd to 3rd round pick for the Broncos in case they’d fall in love with him at X’s and O’s and want to see if he could become, down the line in two to three years, the real deal. I would not touch him with the actual 2nd round pick the Broncos own, I would trade up in the late 2nd round or wait and see if he slide into the 3rd d to the actual Broncosn pick. There he could be really appealing.
Marlon Humphrey CB 3 Alabama rSo 6’1” 196 1st Looks smaller that is lised height. Does everuything very well but is not elite in any category. Lack elite quickness and backdrop footwork and is a little slow on picking his assignment in bunches formations. Gets a bit confused when defending good route runners and lacks elite closing speed. Has good instinct defending the run and is able to move his assignment to close running lanes but often is not able to break free from his block in time to get the tackle. Lacks size to be a forceful tackler but plays aggressive at the LOS. 2nd – 3rd I really don’t see any spot where he excells and could starting as a rookie. In any position he will have to be coached up a bit. He’s a redshirt sophomore so is still young and could really benefit from playing special teams only in year one and learn Pro trick to make up for his lack on shiftness and topend speed. Down the line, if he works hard to be part of the team and not being one of the superstars, he could be come a very good corner. Still I won’t trade Roby for him at all and I would not like the Broncos to use a 1st rounder on a developing player. In the 2nd round, to add depth and a player that played and could become very good oalso in special teams he could be targeted even tough I think that Olinemen and Dlinemen could be still there for the Broncos and beeen rated higher that Humphrey.
Malik McDowell DT 2 Michigan State Jr 6’5” 276 1st Great size, has teh frame to add more muscles. Looks to be relentless but will need to get more powerful to be effective in the NFL. Double teamed a lot in the college ranks he’ll face a bit more freedom in the NFL at least in his first year so that he could get more pressures, hits and sacks on QB. He’s solid in both run defense and pass defense, has very good laterla moves and looks to have elite athleticism for a man of his size. Lacks elute quickness and power to be dominant at the LOS. 1st – 2nd He will need to work increasing his power and maybe the explosion at the snap. His big frame could help Olinemen reaching into him. His relentless pursuit will do good things for him in the Pros and I see him more suited at becoming a very good 3-4 DE. I would not be very happy with Denver selecting him at 20th overall, I envisiona him being more a late 1st rounder or a 2nd rounder because he’s really good but not great in either run defense or pass rushing the QB.
Christian McCaffrey RB 3 Stanford Jr 6’0” 202 1st Has very good size and bulk for a running back. Does not have blzing speed but is quite elusive, has very good hands and is a willing blocker. Intangibles are really there. Has physical style of playing that could lead him to take way to many hits in the NFL, maybe shortening his career. 1st – top 20 Three down player, in more top-end talented drafts he could be a late 1st or a 2nd rounder. In this draft, were to me there is a clear lack of top talent, he has one of the clearest one and look to be a safe pick because he’s quite developed in the three phase of the offense (running, blocking and receiving) plus he’s a weapon in the returning game. He could even be drafted in the top 10 by a team that desperatly needs a three down RB. This said he could also slide towards the end of round one but I really don’t think he’ll slide to the second round alltogether. At 20th the Broncos could be well placed to trade up 5 slots or a bit more and selecting him, if they really like him. I don’t see the dire need at the position to back up the decision to trade the house into the top 10 in order to select him.
Cam Robinson OT 2 Alabama Jr 6’6” 310 1st Athletic and tall. Looks fluid recahing his assignment running screens, a bit less reaching the second level of defenders. Very strong ayt the point of attack, looks to balance well his body staying low and reaching properly the opponent with his arms and hands. Does not have very quick foots but when able to set his foots well is like a mountain too dificult to pass on or run by the defender. Has more trouble with quick rushes, because a bit slow on detting his foot and at times lose leverage and balance in the inside split move by the pass rusher. Powerful that use well his size but which size is also the limitation since his lack of elite agility. 1st – top 20 He could and should one of the top targets because the lack of overall power the actual Denver Oline shown in 2016 season. FA is still pending and the Oline lineup could change suddenly. Still Robinson is the kind of prospect that if well used could be a solid starter for a number of years, he may necver get to the All Pro and Pro.Bowl level but is not a bad pick in the top 20 of any draft, IMO. My knock on him as top 10 prospect is that I cannot see, in his video, a high ceiling (similarly to most of Alabama prospects). He’s well conditioned, well coached already and for these reason he could be a bit more ready to play in the Pros if he get used to the speed of the game. He may never be a LT in the NFL, could start as G and then been moved to T but he’d bring power and size.
Tim Williams OLB 3 Alabama Sr 6’3” 252 1st Has elite quickness at the snap and is fast to go to the QB. Has perfect size for a 3-4 OLB and looks to do a good enough job in coverage at least in the first 10 yards. Has also moque unquestioned power in his lower body and uses it well to anchor and set the corner against runs. 1st An interesting player that has talent to become a very good pass rusher in the NFL for a 3-4 defense and especially for an aggressive one as the Broncos have. I think that he could be in the mix at 20th overall, if still on the board but I would not love Denver to trade up for him. I like his quick first steps and his suddeness taht would make him a dangerous pass rusher from day one.
Taco Charlton DE 4 Michigan Sr 6’5” 272 1st Great size, speed and athleticism. Lack eliote quckness but has some. Is quick at the snap and is able to take advantage from that. Fast, very good in the speed rush. Because of his body type, looks more suited to be a 4-3 DE, the position he played in college, rather than a 3-4 DE. He’s a great pass rush but rely in speed and agility more than power and strength. Team captain, very productive in important games, the team was missing him when not on the field. Is being said to have a very good character out of the field too. 1st I think he’s more suited to be a 4-3 DE rather than a 3-4 DE because of his body type and weigth. He would need to get some 15 pounds on and not loose his speed and agility and it’s a good if. I would not use him as OLB in the 3-4 because he’ll be a situational pass rusher. As some inconsistency but showed up very well in important games. At the beginning of the combine he’s rumored to be a top 15 picks, and that, even recognizing his talent would be perfect for the Broncos so that they won’t be temped to select a player that does not exactly fit the 3-4 defensive scheme.
Takkarist McKinley OLB 2 UCLA Sr 6’2” 258 1st – 2nd Has good size for a 3-4 OLB. He is very quick at the snap but then lacks elite explosion to finish the Olineman. Also looks to anchor well when setting the edge against the run but will have to become stronger in order to have the same success in the NFL. May not have a big room for adding weight. No real experience in dropping in coverage. 2nd – 3rd This evaluation of mine is prior the combine. If he’ll test well there the Broncos will have to spend a late 1st  rounder at least to select him, if they really like him. He looks like a less explosive DeMarcus Ware. Has very good quickness that helps him getting on the Dlineman but at times allaws the opponent to get back at him because the lack of elite explosion that would let him hit another gear on the top of the linemen: that kind of skill that Ware and Miller have. Will need a bit of time to develop his game in the NFL and will have to commit full effort. This is the reason why I would not be happy with Denver drafting him in the 1st round but he’s a 1st round talent at 3-4 OLB. UPDATE: he had back surgery. It’s never good to enter the draft with that because you never knows if a player will get back 100%. being young helps a lot but the draft status will take a huge hit. I think he can fall into the 3rd round or end of 2nd. I watched more viseos od UCLA he always looked a man among boys, I still think he’s a1st round talent but I think the Broncos alñready have a couple of starters at OLB and one very good backup. They won’t look at him (an his surgery) in the first round and even with the 51st pick (the actual second rounder). If he’ll be there in the top of the 3rd, they migh move up to grab him because he’d be a very good depth OLB as a rookie in the Broncos scheme.
Deshaun Watson QB 3 Clemson Jr 6’2” 215 1st – 2nd Poised and in control of the play. Does not get scared by the error he makes, reset the memory and is able to refocus on the next play. Has a tons of athletic skills but has to get much better at defense reading. He’s fast to get rid of the ball when his first (and mostly only) read is open. Does not have great body language and is presence and movement on the backfield are not as good as his poise. Has happy feet, meaning that his footwork need to get better. His throowing release is ok buta bit slow. Quite accurate in short and medium range throws. Does not look to have a cannon of an arm but the spiral look very smmot and the receiver are able to cathc the ball wit no adjustment. Did not play under center, played in zone read offense. 2nd All in all up to now he looks to me as the best QB in the class. Still is quite not much. On the positive is that somehow he could meke things happening with his throws and also with his scrambling. This said there is not that much evidence that he is able to gain time while scrambling and then deliver the throw to the open receiver. Instead he looks to have one read only and being really challenged when the first reqad is not awailable. Although he has the poise and the mental set for becoming a great QB, hsi body language is completely different on the field where he seems a bit off the game after throwing the ball or in pre-snap. He did not be part of huddles and did not audibled plays. A lot of new things to do to reach his full potential. I don’t think that he’s a worse prospect than Lynch when approaching the draft last year, and for this reason I have a late 1st and matbe even more realistic 2nd round grade. Still Lynch is 6’8” and really mobile and the good thing on him is that he was able to gain time with his pocket movement and keeping the ayes downfield looking to throw the ball when somebody would break open. Watson is kind of the opposite player, good to make something happening dast after the snap but if not possible he could take huge sacks because he’s lack of pocket presence. And is 6’2” tall only.
David Njoku TE 2 Miami (Fla.) rSo 6’4” 240 1st – 2nd Has good size and looks to have thick body. Has good speed but is not the fastest player. Looks quite fluid running, has speed to run from linebackers and size to overpower defensive backs. For a player of his size, I would like to see him playing with more power. Looks precise in running short and intermediate routs. Lacks elite explosion to stretch the field, uses his speed to gain more yards possible but cannot compete with DB speed. Has good but not great hands. No Does his best carching the ball in short or intermediate routs and gaining good yardage after the catch running from linebackers before being catched and overnumbered by DBs. His ability to get open in intermediate routes could create opportunity in the passing game for the Broncos. Still he will need to become more powerfull and in not a lock catching the ball. Used his size very well in college where he literally “oversized” opponents bit in a NFL fields he might not have the same results against bigger, stronger and more explosive defenders. I really would not be happy if the Broncos would darft him in the 1st round, especially at 20th overall. He also kind of disappeared from the field whith the game in the line in a couple of videos I saw and in a deep class of TEs, I would prefere to get the prospect that is the number 1 receiving target for his QB when it matters. Also didn’t see much of blocking skills.
Haason Reddick OLB 4 Temple rSr 6’1” 237 1st – 2nd Very athletic and quick. Has  speed and and is able to drop in coverage a bit. Undersized, will need to gain a lot of strength and power in order to not be pushed around by NFl Olineman. Has quickness  more than elite speed and is explosive at the snap. The lack of strength stop him from getting his hands on the QB. In coverage does a very good job staying with his man. Against the run is fearless but lack the power to armtacjle big tailbacks and get the stop. 4th His lack of power ansd trength makes him a development project at OLB in the 3-4 scheme, the only one suitable for him in his rookie year. I heard rumors of converting him in ILB but in order to succeed in that he will have to gain much more power ans trength to be able to shed block from big Guards aor Centers and at the moment once the Olineman is able to get the hands on him he can really put Reddick out of the play. I like the athleticism, the quickness, explosion but his lacks of size and strenght makes him a project in my eyes.
Charles Harris DE 5 Missouri rJr 6’3” 255 1st – 2nd Looks bigger that his listes size. Very powerful and has great quickmness at the snap with very good explosive first steps. Does not have a tons of pass rushing moves but is able to create havoc in the backfield quite often even if does not get the sack. 1st – 2nd Because of his size and body he looks better suited to play 4-3 DE. I think he plays with hish motor and give sign of quickness and power. He could be selected by the Broncos at the end of the 1st round or, better at the beginning of the 2nd as depth at OLB and used as rotarional/backup role in the position where DeMarcus Ware playes the past three years. He does not habe the speed of Von Miller but is really stout and can get a bit more powerful against the run and then he could be a perfect complement together with Ray to Von Miller and would give much better talent at the depth at that position.
Dan Feeney OG 1 Indiana rSr 6’4” 304 1st – 2nd Quick and decisive in his blocks, has good feet for a interior Olineman of his size. Has the frame to become even bigger. Not the most powerful blocker but really solid and always looks to be not only on top of what he’s doing but the offense in general. 1st I like Feeney videos a lot. He’s dominant and plays like a general. He was able to lift the level of performance of the entire Oline just by his relentless and alway precise play. He’s a perfect fit for the Broncos and I would say that  in this draft he might be the  best Olineman overall. He has very good size and great movement in the running game while being also more than solid in pass protection, with very educated feet while playing at G and quite adecuate aldo at RT. Impressive, in this draft I would not complain if the Broncos takes him at 20th overall.
Desmond King CB 5 Iowa Sr 5’11” 206 1st – 2nd A bit smaller than the ideal size but thick and squared. Looks very powerful and has good enough speed. Has some good explosion explosion and is a good in man to man cover Really fluid running down field and in change of direction, sudden and quick. Played kicks returner too but there lacks a bit of vision although looked quite willing and sure with the ball in his hands. 2nd It’s hard to evaluate a CB when in the whole game he has been targeted only one time. His lack of ideal size will make his slide into the 2nd round IMO. I don’t know which kind of CB the Broncos are looking for, but definetely he will be worth the Broncos 2nd rounder by watching his videos.
Forrest Lamp OG 2 Western Kentucky rSr 6’4” 305 1st – 2nd Lacks ideal size for a T and have all the look of a G in the NFL. He has a wide and big body that use well in pass protection, lacks elite footwork but on his own is not that bad. Very powerful player that may lack top athletic skills but looks to have great balance; very fluid when running to place a block, dynamic olineman that could develop and play at T and G in the NFL. 1st Broncos interviewed him at the combine. He’s very powerful, athletic and quick at the snap. Looks to be always on top of what the offense is going to do. I think that the Broncos could and should consider him late in the 1st round or eaarly in the second round in the case he’d still there. he could compete for a T spot as a rookie and work also his transition to G. I won’t be shoked, if the roster situation stays the same as it is at March 23rd, if he’s be selected early in the 2nd round by the Broncos and may end up starting at LT for then as a rookie.
TreDavious White CB 6 LSU Sr 6’0” 184 1st – 2nd Lack ideal size for a modern NFL CB. Still is quick and tackles quite well the catcher just after the catch, not allowing almost any yardage after the catch. Really good man to man cover skills, able to follow the opponent nº1 receiver down the field and stick with him fighting for the ball. Plays aggressive. Has very good athletic skills. 1st – Top 20 I don’t think thata the Broncos would select him in the 1st round but I think they may have a 1st round grade on White, he’s one of the best CB in this class and I think that at the moment he’s underrated. He has a similar style of play of Chris Harris Jr but has some more speed. It makes him even more sudden both in helping in the run game and in the passing game. I don’t think the Brobcos would select him at 20th overall because they might look there at a player similar to Talib which White isn’t. Still A very solid 1st round grade, he could play the nickel position and develop into a Pro-Bowl corner.
Curtis Samuel WR 4 Ohio State Jr 5’11” 200 1st – 2nd Plays returner in special teams. Can play as change of pace tailback. Very quick and fast, not very disciplines in his route running. Explosive with the bvall in his hands, may have problems blocking in the NFL. Looks to have good but not great hands, very good balance and elite athletic skills. 2nd He has been a great college player and looks well built physically at 5’11” and 200 pounds but looks to me less able to absorbe tackles than other “slot” receiver prospects. This said he’s quite elusive and really explosive with the ball in his hands and in open field. I think that I would not be happy if Denver would select him before the 20th pick of the 2nd round. He could be gone but I have some doubt on his physical endurance in the NFL.
Garett Bolles OT 3 Utah Jr 6’5” 296 1st – 2nd Has very good size and atheltic skills. Older prospect that bends well shows very good power and very good balance. Get flagged some. He has very good feet and athleticism but would nbeed to get bigger (and he looks to have the frame to be able to do it).  Can pull some and gets to teh second level quite easily for a guy of his size. 2nd He’s an older prospect and I cannot bypass that by placing him in the first round. I think he could be a solid player in a couple of years, I don0t think that he could be an upgrade if drafted and immediatly started at LT, especially with the expectation of a first rounder.  He might be really interesting for a zone blocking scheme theme as teh Brobncos were under Kubiak.
Carl Lawson DE 6 Auburn rJr 6’2” 253 1st – 2nd Has average size for a NFL 4-3 defHis body “bodes” better as 3-4 OLB. In the running game does not have the power to disangage a pulling G block on the outside and is not always able to secure the edge. Lacks elite quickness but has some and is coming with great speed from the outside as a pass rusher. He’s relentless and is very good identifying where the ball is and going after the ball. In the run game he has to do a better job sheeding blocks and becoming more powerful. Has a long list of injuries in college. No IMO he lacks elite explosion at the snap and true power to mode the Olineman. He has some speed but it does not last long because of his size. Lacks also elite athleticism and is quite inconsistent on his game. I don’t see the aggressive streak that the Broncos usually looks for.
Budda Baker FS 2 Washington Jr 5’10” 192 1st – 2nd Lacks ideal height and weight. Elite athleticism on the field and plays very aggressive. Is able to shed tackles even with his size concerns because of his athleticsm. Fast and aggressive in playing the run and blitzing in the backfield. Used more as deep S in coverage but able to go sideline to sideline in coverage. Suffers the lack of size in the endzone in match ups against TEs or big WRs. 2nd I do really like this prospect. He has all the looks of a younger TJ Ward. He’seven more aggressive and will be able to bulk up so to mantain his physicality in the NFL. He coudl help any team from day one as third S or nickelback in passing situation. I think the broncos should deeply think at him in case he might be still on board ant 51st overall.
Evan Engram TE 3 Ole Miss Sr 6’3” 236 1st – 2nd Lacks ideal size for NFL Tes. Even thought he looks to be a willing blocker at times he does not a good enough job for NFL standards at blocking at the LOS, missing his assignment or not doing a good enough job at cut the dfefensive player or placing the block. Does a slightly better job at blocking in open field but still is not a block finisher. Runs goos short and intermediate routes, has quite sure hands and is quick after the catch enabling himself to get extra yardage. Not afraid to get big hits after a catch. Very smooth running the seam route., has enough speed and athletic skills to be a very good pass catching TE in the NFL. 2nd – 3rd His lack of size could have erased him from Broncos board, but Denver FO interviewed him at the combine (together with the most of the TE class). His a pass catcher that lacks size to be an effective TE in the NFL. He’s very smooth and athletic and has very good quickness, especially in the short area. He could be a very dangerous offensive weapon if he’d be able to get a bit bigger and stronger and maintaing his skillset adding a more efficient blocking. One trick pony in the NFL without the suggested adjustment. Not worth a 1st round pick.
T.J. Watt OLB 5 Wisconsin rJr 6’4” 243 1st – 2nd Played special teams at Wisconsin. Powerful and athletic. Has some speed but lacks elite explosion at the snap. Does a great job shedding blocks and been able setting the corner againts the run. Relentless pass rusher, usus more his power and size than quickness and explosion. 1st – 2nd Very athletic and intense player that migh need to get a better functional strength to become a bit quicklier at the snap. All in all a relentkless pass rusher and a quite polished run stopper. Mayn¡be the most finished product at 3-4 OLB in this draft. Maybe too high at 20th overall but few spots later he could be in the mix if the Broncos are thinking on a heavy rotattion at the OLB personnel. Lacks a bit of quickness and elite athletic skills to be contending a top 10 pick overall.
Caleb Brantley DT 3 Florida rJr 6’3” 307 1st – 2nd Penetrator 4-3 DT, lacks a bit of size to be a 3-4 3-tech DE and has not the physical power and strength to be a 0-tech nose tackle. Has great quickness ant the snap and quick movements to get over if Olineman getting into the backfield. Looks very stout and disruptive when on, played in a high rotational Dline so endurance could be a question too. CFA The Broncos interviewd him at the combine, presumably for a role as penetartor 3-technique DT. There is a some report that he didn’t perform well in his interviews at the combine, no special words on if the Broncos were happy with his interview. I think he lacks a bit of size for what Broncos FO looked to like in past drafts and is able to make great plays, as a top 15th overall talent could, but his game is at times  inconsistent. He has the talent to be seleced between the 10th and the 20th overall draft pick, but I don’tknow if the Broncos will go that way. he looks like the best pure interior disruptor of the draftt aften Allen. Still I would be more confortable to take him between the 22nd and the 45th overall becuase of his lack of ideal size for the 3-4 scheme the Broncos look for. APRIL UPDATE: had domestic violence issue ongoing. He may be erased from many draft boards. The Broncos interviewed him at the Combine and may know the issues related with him. I think he’ll drop completely to CFA for the Broncos, no need to draft his character issue but if available as FA, the cost of bringing him in and see first hand what is going on I stilll think it’s fair.
Obi Melifonwu SS 3 Connecticut rSr 6’4” 219 1st – 2nd Great size and power. Has very good athletic skills and look to bevery stout and aggressive in run support. Has good tackling technique and makes a good job in open field.  In coverage lacks a bit elite speed and at times takes not the best angle to cover a WR. Will need to refine his technique with good coaching. Better at S when he’s facing the ball and can trace it. Lacks elite speed but has very good sense for tracking the ball in the air. Also has a very good sense for tracking the ball in the backfield and chosing the right gap where to go and shut down the ball carrier. 1st Really good football player with very good potential. Good coaching and a bit of moree power would make him one of the best FS in the  NFL and also an option at CB. I don’t know if the Broncos will go S at 20th overall, but he has the talent to be picked there.
Chidobe Awuzie CB 12 Colorado Sr 5’11” 205 1st – 2nd Lacks a bit of heinght but has good enough size. Very athletic and stout. Very fluid running and back pedaling. Explosive and quick to tackle the receiver after the catch. Has elite speed and uses it to makes big plays in special teams. 1st Too athletic and to much speed to not be a 1st round talent. The fact that he played for Colorado could let his slip into the final part of the first round or even into the second round, but between his skills at DB and as special teamer he will be productive in his rookie season, even for the Broncos if they decide to go that way at 20th overall.
Patrick Mahomes QB 4 Texas Tech Jr 6’2” 229 1st – 2nd Looks bigger than his listed size. Have a really strong arm and can make things happening with his feet. Takes bad decisions at times and look tooanxious to make plays in others, resulting n both cases in negative plays for his team. Has great poise as a QB and looks to have a good pocket presence. 1st – 2nd He looks to be a smaller but more ready to lay version of last year Paxton Lynch. I think ¡Mahomes could be a year away from starting for a team that likes tothrow the ball (like the Texans are). The Broncos interview him at the Combine and for this reason I maintain him in the board, because I would down grade him for his “lack of size” being him less tall than both Dysert and Siemian that are both 6’3”. I like his game until he does feel to have to win the game by himself and become very erratic in his reads and decisions, his accuracy goes down a lot too. Under good coaching he could learn how not to get “hot” when is unnecessary and still keep all his skills to make great strides. Maybe the best QB of this class.
Kevin King CB 14 Washington Sr 6’3” 192 1st – 2nd Very tall and lean defensive back. Lacks elite athleticism becaus of his height. Has very good speed and change direction well for his size. Not the most aggressive tackler but a smart one. Ablto to play man to man but will always battle with speedy receivers. Looks very skynny, will have to bulk up a bit. 2nd – 3rd I do understand the buzz around him because of his height and 40 yard dash performance (4.4 sec). It’s amazing. Still he’ll have to deal with his size in the NFL and in some case could go against him. Offensive Coordiantors could match smaller speedster against him to stretch the field or powerful possesion WR to go over the middle in man to man situations and he might struggle oin those situation.
Jourdan Lewis CB 7 Michigan Sr 5’10” 188 2nd Gunner at special teams in Michigan. Played man to man corner. Lacks size and a bit of technique, relying on his speed (that is very good but not elite) and his athletic skills and quickness. Has some character concerns. Able to make physical tackles and be a sure tackler in open field. Fast coming in run support. 1st – 2nd My grade does not take into account his off the field concerns. Just by watching him in some games, he’s able to play man to man and to erase his opponent from the field covering him in outside routes. In inside routes he shows very good quickness, change of pace and very good tackling technique and aggressiveness. I really do like his game. At 20th overall it would be  abit too mauch because of his lack of size, but towards tghe end of the first round his talent has real value. If he would drop to 51st he might be the highest player on Broncos board given that they keept him on the Board after his domestic violence issue.
Raekwon McMillan ILB 2 Ohio State Jr 6’2” 240 2nd Quick and fast reading the pay and very fast in run rupport. Disappear a bit from games. Will have to become a bit more powerful to sustain the hits of NFL. Has good athletic skills but not elite. Has good tackles technique. Has the speed to be a side to side linebacker but maybe not the range. Questionable at times in coverage. 2nd – 3rd IMO he could be a two down linebacker that could develop in a complete linebacker and a better option than Todd Davies but won’t be ready to start in his rookie year. He will have to develop a bit his body and get use to the speed  of the game. Does a very good job as a run stuffer, get a bit lost in coverage at times and even not in the line-up in certain pass situations. A late 2nd, early 3rd.
Jarrad Davis ILB 3 Florida Sr 6’1” 238 2nd Has average side for a NFL inside linebacker. Anyhow looks powerful and plays aggressive. Very fluid while running, has good quickness and very good balance. Really instinctive against the run. Played a lot of zone coverage at Florida and was good at that. Played in special teams kicking teams too. 2nd I’m a bit worried about Davis becuase he played through a lots of injuries which on one side it really shows his toughness, on the other shows that he coudl be often injured in the NFL too. Also watching some videos of entire matches it’s rare to see him making a play. The latter might be becaue opponent offenses were reluctant to challenge him and I give him the benefir of the doubt. He would be a no brainer if taken in the 3rd round (if healthy), but I can also see the Brobcos taking him in the 2nd round too. I think that the fact that he played in zone coverage and not in man would make him a bit less attractive to other teams that will use zone defense more often than the Broncos. For those teams he should have a 1st round grade (proven that he’s healthy enough in their medical reports).
Dorian Johnson OG 3 Pittsburgh Sr 6’5” 300 2nd Very good size, strout and athletic for a man that big. Looks confortable running to the second level to reach his assignment. In pass protection does a good job but look to lack elite balance. Very good executer. Played very well zone bloxking concept taking very good angles to cut away defensive linemen from plays. In run protection at the LOS has more problem with powerful Dlineman. Will have to add some power to his frame. 2nd – 3rd Very good prospect that may have to become a bit more powerful but that has a very sound base in technique and total size to work with. I don’t think he’s a complete finished product that could start and thrive from day 1 but he has all the tool that would allow him to become an All-Pro if he put the hard work in and teh coaches around him will have give him the chance to develop through his first two years as a Pro.
Cordrea Tankersley CB 8 Clemson Sr 6’0” 200 2nd Has average size and lacks top technique in man to man cover. Has very good speed. Draws one to many flags for pass interference. Looks aggressive but does not do really physical tackles. Did not see him quite aggressive coming down in run support either. No I watched some gamens of Clemson and one think I noticed is that QB did not throw many times against Tankersley, but maybe they should because the pass interference flag came at least once per game against him. Also I never really saw him around the ball at the LOS and loos athletic but doesn’t really move that way. I might be very wrong.
Dion Dawkins OG 4 Temple Sr 6’4” 317 2nd Has very good size for an interior Olineman. Looks to be stout and powerful in the running game, able to run and reach his opponent at the second level of defenders and place his arms quite comfortably. In pass protection ahs some so-so feet and looks to be uncomfortable with quick or speedy rushers.. Takes bad blocking angles at times. Still is able to do a very good job in pass protection when able to mantain hiss balance and keep facing the defender. Has some concentration issues at times and is not very aggessive at the snap. 3rd  – 4th Lacks a bit of athletic skills to keep on playing T in the NFL. He is better suited to play G. I see his physical presence but I think he could require a bit more time transitioning to OG and lacks the nasty streak that the Broncos looks to look for in their revamped Oline. I like him quite less than the consensus draft projection.
Gareon Conley CB 9 Ohio State rJr 6’0” 195 2nd Has average size and will have to bulk up a bit in the NFL. Has great awareness and read and react wee to plays with good burnst and quickness. Played in special team in college. Not the most fluid DB in back pedaling. Has very good athleticism but not elite, lacks a bit of explosion. No Disciplinep DB that lacks a bit of physicality but that has great awareness. Lacks also elite athleticism and explosion at the snap and in changing direction. Morer solid player that could make plays because of steady execution than ballhawk or playmaker by style of play. If the Broncos have him on the board I think he could have 2nd – 3rd round pick grade depending if the still value physicality and aggressiveness as they did in the past. APRIL UPDATE: accused of Sexual Assault 5 days before the draft. I hasd a 2nd to 3rd grade on him, wasn’t already to convinced he’d be a nice fit to the Broncos secondary. Now I think he’ll be at best a CFA. I take him off the board completely.
Cooper Kupp WR 6 Eastern Washington rSr 6’1” 198 2nd Looks bigger than his listed size, maybe due to hsi wide frame and shoulders. Has very good quickness and change of direction that allows hism to be very dangerous after the catch. Also a willing blocker. Has some impressive speed when he break open in open field, he’s able to hit an extra gear and run away from defender. Played as  slot and outside receiver. may lacks elite athleticism and is not the tallest WR prospect. Will have to bulk up a bit in order to absorb NFL hits. 2nd – 3rd Not the most athletic WR but has incredible quickness in the short area and is very reliable as a catcher. Is a long strider too. Played very well whe facing DIV I teams and dominant at his level. Very interesting prospect towards the end of the 2nd round.
Taylor Moton OT 4 Western Michigan rSr 6’5” 330 2nd Has very good size. Looks very stount and powerful. Lacks some balance and struggle to finish his assignment when not able to set his balance at the snap. Looks still dynamic althiugh has kind of slow feet. Looks comfortable while reaching the second level of defenders and looks to be a smooth runner. Powerful while pulling LBs. 3rd I see him as a more powerful version of Schofield. I think he would have to start his NFL career at G and the gradually become a reliable RT. Lacks the footwork and the body balance to be a LT in the NFL.  Interesting player that would bring some versability and quality depth as a rookie.
DeMarcus Walker DE 7 Florida State Sr 6’4” 280 2nd Lacks ideal size for a 3-4 DE, more off a 4-3 DE. Has some quickness and nastyness at the snap, is able to create havoc in the backfield and has a non stop motor. Leadership roles in Florida State defense. Stout against the run too. Powerful and restless player. 2nd He has the ideal height for a 3-4 DE and great feeling for the game and non stop motor. He’s a football player and looks to be a grinder a ateam player. Has quite great quickness that could beat inside Olinemen in the NFL and also suddeness that could make him a very good 4-3 DE. He could develop better functional strength but has already a very good balance that would make him a very dangerous inside pass rusher.
Carlos Watkins DT 4 Clemson rSr 6’4” 312 2nd Has good size for a inside Dlineman. Looks strong and pursuit the ball until the whistle. Lack elite quickness and first steps to be a consistent pass rusher but does quite well as space eater and pushing back Olinemen in the passing game. Still has been often able to make plays in the backfield when it mattered the most in important games. 3rd I see him as NT because of the size and the lack of quickness at the snap. His ability to make plays could allow him to become a three down player in the NFL is he’ll be able to put up some more power in the lower body and will consisently anchor well against the run. A bit lethargic at times.
Malachi Dupre WR 7 LSU Jr 6’2” 190 2nd Has very good athleticism for his size but will need to add buld and become bigger to absorb NFL defenders hits. Can make acrobatic catches and has very good straigth speed. Not afraid to make a clutch catch in traffic over the middle of the field. 2nd  -3rd A WR that could play either inside in the slot and ourside. Has very good athleticism and some flashes of speed. Has long arms and that could help him reaching the ball high being eventually also a comfortable target in the end-zone. A late second or even better a 3rd rounder.
Roderick Johnson OT 5 Florida State Jr 6’6” 308 2nd Very good size, does not have the quickliest foot, has power and is able to use well his body balance in college game. Will need to become stronger and more powerful to have the same success in the NFL. A bit lethargic at times but all in all in 2016 was the only solid spot in Florida State Oline. 4th When you don’t notice an Olineman in a big game is because he’s doing a fine job. Unfortunately ha has been quite inconsistent in his game through 2016. He has the power and the athleticism to become a starting LT in the NFL butseems to lack te balance and functional strength to use power and size. The lack of balance also let him having horrible footwork at tmes. Developmental prospect at LT. it would take a year to let him understand the speed and power of the NFL.
Alvin Kamara RB 4 Tennessee rJr 5’10” 215 2nd Very elusive returner, very god body control, able to break tackles in the return game. As a running back also has great balance and is very dynamic. Has soft hands and catches well the ball out of the backfield. Able to accelerate has a very good vision in open field. Can block some but lacks strenght and power to be solid on that. Very elusive, able to break tackles with his elusiveness. Lacks elite speed and explosion. Has some good quickness. LAcks a bit of vision as a runner behind the LOS. 3rd – 4th Versatile player that is a good three down running back but that gets a lots of hype since a months or so. He’s not close to be in the same class with NcCaffrey, does not align as slot receiver, is a less isntinctive runner has less vision that Mccaffrey as a runner. Has the same great vision in open field and has great elusiveness. Great special teams returneras McCaffrey in total a big step behind. I think he could be more worth a 4th rounder but the Broncos need of a versatile offensive player might push him up a round. I hope Denver won’t select him at 51st overall because he’s not the kind of McCaffrey clone (but 2nd round clone) the media wants him to portrait.
Ryan Anderson OLB 6 Alabama rSr 6’2” 258 2nd Pass rush specialist, very quick and fast, could be a bit more powerful and his run defense is not as good as it should to make him a 1st rounder. Also dropping in coverage will be a skill to be learned. I think He’s more of a 3-4 edge rusher than a prototypical 4-3 OLB. 2nd If Broncos FO is enamored with him because of interview and feels that adding a fierce pass rusher specialist id a good thing, I won’t be shocked if a 2nd round pick is used to select him, but I won’t be any happy if the broncos would trade up to get him before their actual 2nd rounder is on the clock.
Tarell Basham DE 8 Ohio Sr 6’4” 259 2nd Explosive and aggressive at the snap. Has great size for a 4-3 DE or a 3-4 OLB. Has very goos speed in the pass rushe and keep coming. Looks to have good power and  balance. Lacks elite quickness and short area quickness too. Played DE in college, no real experience in dropping in coverage. A bit less stout against the run, has problem balancing when blocked by pulling Olinemen. 2nd – 3rd He’s very intriguing to me because he’s an aggressive pass rusher that will need time to develop his game as 3-4 OLB and be able to set the corner against the runand eventually drop in coverage. For this reason he could have a early 3rd round for the Broncos but on the other hand he will not be asked to start if not for injuries and could have time to lay only in rotation in obvious passing situation so a 2nd round could be worth to use on him. I really like his aggressiveness and power.
Quincy Wilson CB 11 Florida Jr 6’0” 209 2nd Has average size for a NFL CB. Lacks elite game speed and could have problems with NFL speedy and powerful WRs. Looks fluid and quick in the videos but also does not make many plays (and have some negative plays and penalties). Played in special teams. 2nd – 3rd I think that he lacks a bit of speed but has quickness and awareness. This would translate in having him playing the nickel corner position and contributing in special teams. Fort the Broncos a late 2nd rounder or a 3rd rounder could be a good grade.
Ethan Pocic C 1 LSU Sr 6’6” 307 2nd Great size and personality on the field. Will have to get bigger in the NFL and more powerful. Still at collegiate level he shows poise and power in the running game, some good athleticism, for a C of his size, in the pass blocking. 3rd I think the Broncos are not looking for a pure C so high in the draft. Plus Pocic will need time to get bigger and more powerful for NFKL standard. He also weill need to learn more technique and raise his level of awareness. I think that the Brobcos could have a third round grade on him because of his size and potential but would not darft him there because of the relative no-need at the osition and because I don’t think could provide depth at others positions. Still Paradir will be UFA in 2018 and having at home his eventual successor developing and getting comfortable with the schemes would be the best thing to do.
Joe Mixon RB 5 Oklahoma rSo 6’1” 226 2nd Good hands and self confidence in the red zone. Runs with some patience and shows good vision and some elusiveness. Lacks top speed and explosion but looks very natural with the ball in his hands and looks to have some idea of pass blocking too. Could be a three down player but not a homerun runner in the NFL. 3rd He has red flags and well documented domestic violence history. The Broncos had a visit and interview with him. Professional analysts talk about him as a potential first rounder that may slide into the second round. I’m not really sure that he should be a high rounder, I didn’t see the explosion and top speed that would warrant that status. A 3rd rounder looks more realistic IMO, if the Broncos feels comfortable with him.
Tyus Bowser OLB 8 Houston Sr 6’2” 244 2nd Has short area quickness and explosion. Has very good size for a 3-4 OLB. Dynamic, does not give up on a play. Lacks strenght and power to be effective in the run game as he’s effective in the pass rush. Gets pushed around a bit to easely by Olinemen and blocking TEs. He looks much less productive when playing as DE in a 4-3 allignment where he cannot explode at the snap and use his speed. 1st – 2nd To me it depends what a team looks for. If a teams looks for a speedy and athletic pass rusher, he’s a 1st rounder. If a team looks for a good pass rusher that could play right away he’s not a 1st rounder. His speed and quickness are 1st round skills, but he need to get stronger and more powerful to not be a situational pass rusher. I think the Broncos are betwee thos teams that does not need a complete player and they can afford to let him be a situational pass rusher and meanwhile teach him how to become a better run stopper.
Adam Shaheen TE 8 Ashland rJr 6’5” 277 2nd He dominated the game at the level he played. Looks very sound in his game, as a blocker at the LOS and in open field, as a TE and as a slot receiver. This said the level he played, the speed and the power is far from top college level as the college level is from the NFL. 2nd – 3rd He really dominated at his level of play. The question is how much the level of competition impacted his performance. If he’d be playing Div I football would he be so dominant, would he injured himself more (as Gronk did)? Will he be able to jump mentally from Div II expectations to the NFL as a 2nd round pick? I would prefer the Broncos to take him in the 3rd round, but I can see more than one team that will be willing to take him at the end of round 2. I still think that could be a too big jump, especially mediatically and mentally but in the past some Div II player where selected in the 1st round (John Mobley in example) and everything went smooth. I think that if he’d be there at 51st overall, the Broncos  wull pick him.
Sidney Jones CB 4 Washington Jr 6’0” 181 2nd – 3rd Has good but not great size. He’s really fast and quick. Is able to get down to the LOS quickly. Makes good tackles in open space  but is not the most policed cover corner, looks to rely a lot in his athletic skills and in his speed and that won’t make the cut in the Pros. Has very good change of directions skills. Plays aggressive at times. 2nd  -3rd He has 1st round talent: flashy, quick, fast and instinctive. I have some question on his awareness or motor, to me he looks to rely a lot on his skills in college and that trouble me a bit. Could have problem with physical WR. I’m not very high on his videos but I cannot deny his skills and talent and if the Broncos really like him anf they take him at 20th overall I cannot disagree. March 12th Update: he injured his Achilles tendon in his pro-day. 6 months out. He will fall from the top 15 picks but I don’t know how much. If the Broncos can grab him in the 3rd round (if he falls that far) he could become a steal.
Cameron Sutton CB 10 Tennessee Sr 5’11” 188 2nd – 3rd Lacks a bit of size for NFL standard. Willing to play FS too, did the drills at the senior bowl and looked good, rangy and with feeling for the position. Lacks elite speed, mat have problems coverign speedy WR on the outside. Able to tackle quickly not allowing much yards after the catch. Very quick and sudden at the snap when blitzing or coming down in run support.Able to make good open field tackles. Does have a good technique in coverage. Played also punto returner in college. 4th – 5th It looks to me taht helacks elite speed and could struggle to play on the outside against either speedy or tall and big receivers. He may find his best spot at nickel or covering slot receivers. May have to buld up  a bit and play FS where his skills may find a perfect place to be displayed. A bit of limited as CB and a project at S. Middle rounds for the Broncos because he could add depth at both positions while learning the speed and power of the NFL and getting bigger.
Chris Wormley DT 5 Michigan rSr 6’5” 297 2nd – 3rd Great size and power. Lacks elite athleticism but moves all around the LOS quite well. Lacks elite quickness but is really hard to move him away or to stop his pursuit. Great motor, team chaptain. Underrate prior to the combine. 2nd Considering Denver holds at the moment the 20th pick in the 2nd round, if Wormley is still on the Board and Denver likes him, they could pick him there. I think he’s very similar to Wolfe since he’s very stout against the run and offers something in pass rush too but mainly from bull rush. He played DE at Michigan but looks to have the perfect body type of a 3-4 DE. I think the Broncos are in need of a penetrator DE but getting Wormley would be good enough to create great depth and have a very solid starter even from his second year. In run downs he could holds his own already as a rookie IMO. Dever could do a lot worse than Wormley in the 2nd and actually Wormley could be out of the board already at that point.
Marcus Williams FS 3 Utah Jr 6’0” 195 2nd – 3rd Has average size, plays aggressive and is stout tackling but has to get better in tackling angles in open field. Looks to be quite on top of what is going on the field and is able to put himself in the position to make a play. Has range and is able to track well the ball breaking passes or getting interceptions. Great instincts, could play both FS and SS. 3rd I don’t think that the Broncos will go after a S in the 2nd or 3rd round, But in case he would drop into the 4th or 5th round he could be hard to pass-up even though Denver drafted two S in the 2016 draft. He looks to have an aggressive mentality when playing and that bodes well with what the Broncos wants and the rest of the unit in place on the team. He will have to get better  tacckling technique because in the NFL execution is everything.
Adoree’ Jackson CB 13 Southern California Jr 5’11” 185 2nd – 3rd Great athleticism, lacks ideal height, can play a role in the offense too as tailback or WR and is a good returner. Has great quickness and speed, he’s shifty and react well to the ball. Has the explosion to make up for the lack of height and looks to be a fighter. 1st Because of his athleticism and polyedric skills he could be a great addition in round one and be developed as DB but could be used in the three phases really. He looks smaller that his height but is quick and has speed. I would not be afraid if Denver decide to take him at 20th overall, thought I would not trade up for him.
Elijah Qualls DT 6 Washington rJr 6’1” 321 2nd – 3rd Lacks a bit of height for ideal Dlineman in the NFL. Has power and strength but looks to be a bit inconsistent with his game. On passing down he relies more on bullrush than quickness or pass rushing tehniques. Mosto of his snap on the field he plays DE (in a 4-3 defensive front) against the run, lining up in front of the T and trying to cut inside. Has goods athletic skills for his size bur lack quickness and speed. Has some kind of explosion. Looks to be able at time to keep hsi position and occupy space even if double teamed. 4th Interviewed with the Broncos at the scouting combine. I would say that I’m not very impressed by Qualls videod I saw and that I would prefer the Broncos to look elsewhere but he actually is one of the few Dlinemen Denver FP and coaches interviewed at the Combine. I really don’t like that he’s quite out of the Dline rotation in passing downs and that even when he’s on the field he’s quite inconsistent and does not create consistent havoc in the backfield. He faced several double teams, I have to admit it but still he looks like very inconsistent to me. A 4th rounder, and might still be a boom or bust.
JuJu Smith-Schuster WR 9 Southern California Jr 6’2” 220 2nd – 3rd Has very good size, and have serious body balance and quickness. Very powerful and run good enough routes. Drops issue at times. Desappears from games. Suffers man tight man to man coverage. 2nd – 3rd  He has very good skills but he may lack  elite speed and change of direction. He’s able to make great catches inside the numbers but struggle at times against tight man to man coverage. If he’d be still on the board in the third round (remote case since it looks that Baltimore is considering him a 1st rounder)the Broncos might look at him and make hi the third WR ,
Dalvin Tomlinson DT 7 Alabama rSr 6’3” 312 2nd – 3rd Big and strong and also fast Dlinemen. He lacks elite quick steps at the snaps and for thsi reason he’s a lesser prospect than his teammate Allen. He defende very well against the run and also is able to pressure the QB amd move Olinemen back into the backfield in passing downs. May not have a high ceiling, as the most of Alabama prospects under Nick Saban tenure: he’s NFL fit and received NFL preparation. 2nd Very underrated at this moment, before the combine starts. I think he has a late 1st round talent, because of his size and power and because he always looks to be on top of what he’s doing in any snap. He could need a bit of time to adjust his game to teh NFL speed, but has the power and the size to be converted in a successful NT for the Broncos that could provide also a bit of pass rush if asked. I would not take him at 20th overall, because the talent that should be there at others positions (CB, RB the more and the most) but if the Broncos decide to trade down into the late 1st round I will be very happy with his selection. From there on I think he would be a very good selection for the broncos since the litle struggle the Dline had in 2016 against the run. Don’t know about his football IQ and character concerns and also during Elway regine, the Broncos did not select any Alabama prospect (and Stanford ones to be fair) in any round.
Gerald Everett TE 5 South Alabama rSr 6’3” 239 2nd – 3rd Looks to be a solid blocker. Lacks both height and weight to be an effective TE in the NFL, will have to bulk up and become more powerful. Still a very athletic player that isn’t afraid to use his body to get the best for the team. Has very good short area quickness and is very shifty, being able to gain yeards after the catch and make defender miss tackles. Has a great balance once with the ball in his hands and is able to break tackles. 3rd – 4th The Broncvos drafted Thomas in the 4th round. Everett is a much ,ore polished TE but lacks size and has small hands. He will seriously need to get bigger to be able to adapt and maintain  his physical style of lay. I think the Broncos could like him a lot but up to now the Broncos never drafted a TE hiher than the late part of the third round. Everett, because of size and the level of competition he faced in college is a project, a little less than Thomas and for that reason he could be targeted in the 3rd round.
Amara Darboh WR 10 Michigan rSr 6’2” 215 2nd – 3rd He has good size but not great, is athletic and have quite soft hands. He’s capable of acrobatic catches and is not afraid of going over the middle. Lacks elite quickness and speed. Use well enough his body to halp himself catching the ball and defending it from the tacklers. Run good enough routs. Has some drops. 3rd – 4th I think that in the NFL he may be a possession WR but will need to bulk up a bit in order to be able to absorbe hits from the defenders. Lacks elite speed and quickness but looks to be very athletic. In the pre-combine evaluation to me, if the Broncos really like him, could be targeted in the third round by Denver. He could become a reliable third target since he rarely misses in important moment.
Antonio Garcia OT 6 Troy rSr 6’6” 293 2nd – 3rd Great size and very quick feet. Has to get better footwork in pass coverage but has the quickness that would allow him to get it under good coaching. Able to take some good angles and shows power to move defenders.  Lacks a bit of quickness at the snap and the right balance to recover from a speed rush. When able to take is position and balance at the snap he can bend well and put his hands well, looking like a wall for the defender. 2nd – 3rd If the Broncos did not select yest any T and they are on the clock at 51st, they might select Garcia because he mif¡ght very well be the best of the rest, He might need a lot of help to start rght away but has the quick feet and enough athletic skills to have the potenetial to become a reliable starting LT in the NFL if he’ll put the work in and the coaching staff will be gyuaranteed time to work with him.
Larry Ogunjobi DT 8 Charlotte rSr 6’2” 304 2nd – 3rd Dynamyc and energetic. Lacks elite explosion and quickness at the snap. Looks really stout. Very good atheltic skills. Looks powerful. Looks more effective when not line up one to one to a Olineman, from the 3-technique use his quickness to gets through the Oline and create pressure on the QB. Very disruptive when linening up between C and G, uses his athleticism to create havoc in the backfield in the passing game. In the running game he’s able to disengage double teams to keep the truck of the runner out of the backfield. 3rd – 4th Lacks ideal size and explosion at the snap. Has some very good awareness and power, uses well his hands tpo shed blocks and is very active at the LOS. Saw a lot of double teams and still was able to create pressures at times breaking free from double teams. Still lacks of ideal Heigth and a not so sure ceiling are the responsible for this lower grade.
Pat Elflein C 2 Ohio State rSr 6’3” 303 2nd – 3rd Lacks ideal height for the modern NFL. He’s very quick at the snap and has a lot of power. Moves well to reach his opponent and position himself quite well with good footwork. UPDATE 03/03/2017: His size measurement at the combine gives him 1 inch and an half more. Now at least on paper he has a prototipycal size for a C in the NFL 4th – 5th He has been an exceptional college player but I don’t see how he could be graded as a 2nd rounder at the moment (combine just started). He’s stout and always plays until the whistle, has some but not elite athleticism, shows some good footwork but could be beat by quick inside pass rusher and does not have ideal size. He looks to be a grinder and to play football the right way, played C only in his last year at college so could provide some versatility tought will be realy undersized at G. I think that Denver should think at him only at the end of the 4th round, a 5th rounder could be even better. UPDATE 03/03/2017 – After his size measurement at the combine, he has average size for a C in the NFL. I still have a lower grade than the most, still between a 4th and a 5th.
ArDarius Stewart WR 11 Alabama rJr 6’0” 204 2nd – 3rd Has great game down hill speed. Has average size but has the room the getting bigger. Looks really smooth and powerful runnig  and catching the ball. Run very good routs, is not afraid to go over the middle and very good athletic skills and short area quickness. Is capable of blocking. 2nd – 3rd Very good WR that has the speed and quickness to be a dangerous weapon as third receiver option. Still he has some drops and may have beneficiated by playing in the ultra talented Alabama offense. I would be more confortable with the Broncos taking him in the 3rd down or lower but Denver Fo does not have history to take WR in the third, they have history tom take the WR they like in the 2nd.
Montravius Adams DT 9 Auburn Sr 6’3” 308 2nd – 3rd Has average size for NFL standard as interior Dlineman. Really powerful and explosive at the snap against the run. Has good body balance and is able to anchor well against the run game when the Olineman is trying to pull him. 3rd Dominant run stuffer and huge backfield penetrator. He lacks elite athleticism and explosion but alwats takes very good angles and is able to shed blocks or push back the blocker to then pass him and disrupt the pplay in the backfield. Not much of a pass rusher but in a division as the on ethe Broncos play a huge run stuffer is a good thing to have in the Dline. Late 2nd or even better early 3rd round because he won’t play many snaps and would play only in 1st and 2nd downs. Will have to get conditioned so that he would not heavily rotate on the lineup.
Tyler Orlosky C 3 West Virginia rSr 6’3” 292 2nd – 3rd Has average size and will have to beef up a bit in the NFL. Moves quite well and looks quite powerful. Looks always on top of what he’s doing and in command of the LOS. Has a great push in the running game and is able to reach the second level quite easily and there place his block. In the pass protection bends quite well and is able to bend and shield the pocket. 3rd – 4th I don’t really know if the Broncos will be o the market for a C, but he’ll need to bulk up a bit. His skills and style of play is really what an aggressive Oline is looking for. I wouldn’t mind, given the lack of depth at the C position, if the Broncos would use a third round on him. After one year of apprentice he could really challenge for the starting job.
Duke Riley OLB 7 LSU Sr 6’1” 231 2nd – 3rd Lacks a bit of size and doesn’t look to have the frame to add muche more bulk. Does not look very explosive either. Has some instinct against the run and moves well behind the Dline side to side. Has speed and instinct that puts him in position to make plays in the backfield. Able to shed blocks from TEs or WRs with ease. As a pass rusher lacks the explosion at the snap and quick first steps but is still resilient and able to locate the ball well and creating pressures and hits. 3rd I think he lacks some explosion and power to be effective in the NFL. Will need time to develop and may end up playing a long time. Still an interesting linebacker that could be interesting to see competing for the Will spot at ILB in the Broncos sheme given his speed.
Chris Godwin WR 13 Penn State Jr 6’1” 205 2nd – 3rd Lacks a bit of size but looks thick and powerful. Have very good balance and acceleration. Looks powerful in his yards after catch pursuit and could actually break some tackles. 3rd Played on an offense that run the ball with great success. This said he was the first read in almost any intermediate to deep pass. I like his balance and smooth running. Looks to be explosive enough and to be a reliable pass catcher. Might develop into a good slot or possession receiver that could move the chains.
Jordan Willis DE 10 Kansas State Sr 6’4” 255 2nd – 3rd Hyperproductive player in college, Big 12 defensive player of the year in 2016. At the combine he put up big numbers that would show great athleticism, quickness and some good speed for his size. By his videos he’s a big relentless pass rusher that plays until the wisthle on every play. He looks to have the mindset for a perfect 3-4 penetrator DE but lacks weight and power to play that position. IMO he lacks quickness and elite burnst to be a impact player at the OLB position and power to be a really good 4-3 DE. 3rd He migh need a year to develop his game in the Pros. Will have to get a bit quicker and faster at the snap plus maintaining his relentless effort to chase the QB. If developed by a good coach, he could become a very good SOLB in the 3-4 defense, rushing the passer and setting the corner against the run.
Fabian Moreau CB 16 UCLA rSr 6’0” 205 2nd – 3rd Good cover corner, has average size, good balance and quickness and really good shoert area quickness and movement. Very fluid running and backpedaling, lacks elite speed but has very good closing speed. Tend to lose a step in long throws coverage on the outside. Not flashy neither stount in tackling against the run. Slow coming out of WRs blocks and slow to react to the run. No I think his lack of support in the run game would place him out of Brobcos Board in this very deep class of CB.
Davis Webb QB 7 California Sr 6’5” 229 2nd – 3rd Great size. Has a good poise and able to put a very good zip on his throws. Footwork has to be fixed as his pocket awareness. Not a great scrambler, lacks a bit of athletic skills to present a threat with his legs. No I think the Broncos are looking for a QB that could throw the ball and move around too. Webb throws the ball quite well but does not move much in the pocket and outside the pocket. Not a scrambler, likes to get the rid of the ball too soon at times and at times is not able to keep the ball as required to help the receiver to make the play.
Ahkello Witherspoon CB 22 Colorado rSr 6’2” 195 2nd – 3rd Very athletic despite his size, tall and lean but somehow still aggressive and physical. Has ome very good athleticism but lacks elite quickness and explosion because of his lenght. In pass coverage uses his height to deflect passes. Played in a lot of zone schemes that might helped him playing his strong suit. 3rd layed in a lot of zone scheme in Colorado. Based on his tape, he lacka abit of speed to be on pace with the rest of Denver CB. But has the size and physicality that modern NFL looks for DBs. I think that at very least a 3rd round will have to be used on him if Denver likes him enough to have him on the board. The Broncos interviewed him at the Combine.
Nico Siragusa OG 5 San Diego State rSr 6’4” 326 3rd Has very good size, great upper body strenght and power. Will need to get more powerful in the lower body, has some happy feet and looks completely comfortable running to get to his assignment ot pulling and reaching the LBs level of defense. Very quick at the snap, has some serious explosion for a guy of his size, plays with a lot of power but lacks elite athleticism. In pass protection he’s really fast to get into his stands and has quite good hands technique and is really stout. 4th I think that the Broncos would like to see him a bit more powerful with a better functional strenght. Still he’s a very good player with a bit less of potential tahn other prospect at G but very solid. Will need to get stronger in his rookie year and could play a bit in substitution of a injured starter or, as is more in use in nowadays NFL, in  a line rotation.
Jaleel Johnson DT 10 Iowa rSr 6’3” 309 3rd Good but  not great size, lokks to anchor well and occupy space and blockers. Highly porductive in 2016. Looke powerful but lacks explosion at the snap. Has some lateral quickness that helps him making tackles at the LOS. 5th I think the Broncos value the NT or 1 tech DT less than other teams, at least it’s the message I got from the free agency period. He’s a strong player that against stout units suffers a bit and could be a bit pushed away in some plays and then make the stop against the run in the next play. I don’t think he’ll provide pass rushing threat in the NFL. A middle round grade if I understand correctly Denver value at the position.
Rasul Douglas CB 15 West Virginia rSr 6’2” 204 3rd Has great size for a CB and very good balance and athletic skills. Lacks a bit of top speed and explosion. Will need to add miscles for his frame in the NFL. Not physical enough, will have to get better at his tackling technique and will migh move to nickel duties since he does not have the speed or p`hysicality to cover outside receivers. No He has great size for a CB but lacks physicality and speed. The Broncos usually look for more stout and aggressive CB and I thisnk that he might need at least one year to get ready physiscally and mentally to play in the NFL
Zay Jones WR 12 East Carolina Sr 6’2” 202 3rd Has good size but will have to bulk up a bit. Has great short area quickness and run very polished routes. Has the look of a slot receiver in the NFL, lacks elite speed on the outside. Is willing to place blocks both at the LOS and in open field. 2nd Has good enough skills to be targeted in the 2nd round: quickness, plays with a sense of urgency, had to make up to QB shortcomings, very good route runner and someone that once he’ll be ready for NFL speed and power, would be willing to place blocks and do whatever it’s required to help his team win.
Jake Butt TE 6 Michigan Sr 6’5” 250 3rd Torn ACL in the bowl game and will most surely lose his entire rookie year. He’s great size and runs very good routs. Block also quite but will need to become more powerful and strong in the NFL to repeat his college success in this department. Has good but not great hands and his size does come in his way whan he has to make some very athletic catch. Lacks elite athleticism. 5th The grade reflect his injury. If not injured I would think the Broncos could have used a late 2nd rounder to get him because of the lack of elite athleticism and the few drops here and there. He could become a three downs TE uin the NFL but will really need to become stouter and stronger to sustain  contacts and hits from NFL veterans. Denver already saw what means ACL torn on a rookie TE with similar characteristics (Hauerman coming out of college) and the time it’s taking to come back from and teh delay in prodcution. it could be  an important factor that erase Butt from Denver Board. I think he is very talented but will need to work and would have been not ready to become starter on a NFL team. With the ACL even less.
Derek Rivers DE 9 Youngstown State Sr 6’4” 250 3rd Has the size and power to play at the highest level.Has some problem shedding blocks and changing direction. Has good quickness and speed on the outside. Also has a very powerfulpush im the bullrush. Lacks explosion and is just not good enough againts the run. 6th – 7th The Broncos interviewed him. He’s not at physiscal and explosive as the Broncos are portraing their new defense to be. He is another porject as Gotsis was in 2016 but Gotsis was showing a really physical style of play. I hope Broncos FO learn their lesson and won’t overdraft this very good prospect that would need a couple of years to develop and learn to be a bit stouter against the run.
Eddie Jackson SS 4 Alabama Sr 6’0” 194 3rd Played also punto returner in special teams: as returner he has some good vision but lacks elite explosion but has enough athletic skills and shyftiness, plus runs with power and is able to break some tackles. As a Safety in run support he is not able to shed blocks from WRs or Tes and is pushed around a bit. When unblocked he’s able to locate the ball and come fast to the LOS and deliver some good hits. Will need to get a better technique to be a surer tackler and just not a hitter. In coverage he shws less athletic skills than what expected by his returning game, lacks elite speed to be a smooth side to side defender. No Played a lot of zone in Alabama as a Safety, looks less physical that what the Broncos look to like and maybe lacks a bit of range. I wouldn’t use a 3rd round for a punt returner, there are a lot of them later in the draft or even between undrafted college free agents.
Isaac Asiata OG 6 Utah rSr 6’3” 325 3rd Quick and powerful at the snap. Able to square off Dlineman and to stun blitzing linebacker. Plays phisically, is quick in the run and able to get to his assignement at the second level of defenders, able to pull the opponent very well, powerful and quite domnant frankly. Can run down field and place a block on a DB showing unexpected athelticism and lots power. He has quite less success when his stamina goes down and in pass protection looks less dominant the in the run game but still quite powerful. Will have to get a bit more of quick feet to hold up well against NFL speed inside rushers. 2nd – 3rd I like a lot his run game and I can libe with his pass protection. A couple of years in the NFL could give him the necessaruy experience to become a really solid pass protector. His fury in the running game is unmatched at the moment by Denver inside Olinemen (a part Leary that is btw a free agent addition). I would really like the Broncos to finally take a nasty and rude high in the draft and I even thisnk that Bolles had a very good year because Asiata, that plays next to, had a great one.
Erik Magnuson OT 8 Michigan rSr 6’4” 303 3rd Lacks ideal size at the T position and looks to me that lacks elite power to become a reliable G. Looks in trouble with quick pass rushers because seldomly he has problem with his footwork. No Lack of size and power plues the Broncos already have several young players on the roster. I don’t see been better of incumbent in any category especially in the middle rounds. At the end of the draft or as CFA the Broncos will for sure bring in some players but that would need different development or that played at a lower level in college.
Brad Kaaya QB 5 Miami (Fla.) Jr 6’4” 210 3rd Looks smaller than his listed size. Will have to bulk up and quite a bit. Has very good QB IQ, makes good decision and knows where to go with he ball. Playes snaps under center and is able to play bootleg and thow in motion a bit. Not the most athletic QB has also to get a better packet presence and to diagnose faster where to move within the pocket. Has ok arm strength and is quite inconsistent with accurancy. No He often looks like a boy among men. Does not have great pocket presence and lacks elite arm strength and could spend entire part of games where his accurancy is quite off. I kind of not see what he would add to what the Broncos have at the moment (Siemian and Lynch).
David Sharpe OG 7 Florida Jr 6’6” 343 3rd Has great size for an inside Olineman in the NFL, average for a T. Played LT in 2016 for the Florida gators and lacks good footwork and quickness to matain the LT position in the NFL., Looks enough powerful to learn how to be a RT in the NFL but the proliferancy of teams with two remarkable edge rushers could make him lokk bad as a rookie RT. Lacks nasty streak. No He will have problems with speed rusher or quick first steps rusher in the NFL because of his limkites quickness. On the other hand he has the frame to get more powerful and maybe with some more core strength he could become a bit faster in his movements. Still I don’t think he has the athleticism to become a reliable LT in the NFL but he may have all the tools to become with a couple of years of apprentice a reliable RT or G but I think the Broncos are looking for more nasty players so instead of a 4th – 5th round grade I think the Broncos won’t have him on their board.
Chad Hansen WR 25 California rJr 6’1” 195 3rd Very athletic, has very good speed for a receiver of his size. Can make acrobatic catches. Has great vision and it’s really difficult to tackle in open field. He has an extra gear to hit when in open field. Has great quickness after the catch and can place some block in open field. Lacks a bit of explosion at the snap and may be a liability in blocking at the LOS. 2nd – 3rd I like a lot his playmaking abilities. He can make incredibles catches. Plays as outside WR, he’s less physiscal that what he coudl be at 6’2” but id really athletic and can leap very high making catches.  Runs good enough routes too. May not have the best potential but would bring another receiving threat to the team.
Isaiah Ford WR 8 Virginia Tech Jr 6’1” 194 3rd – 4th Has average size, great quickness and burnst. Very good running out routs, is able to break open by running precise routes. Does some blocking but at 6’1” 194 pounds is not the his best suit. Used mainly to run outside routes  because of his acceleration and quickness at the snap. Doesn’t show elite speed IMO. No I think he’s a bit of a mix between a Nº2  and a slot receiver: he had success at Nº2 in college but has better skills to succed at slot receiver in the NFL with the exception taht he has to get stronger and be able to catch the ball consistently in traffic. A bit of development here and there and I think the Broncos could be on the market for a slot receiver but already experienced in that role, maybe take a developmental player as college free agent, not with a draft pick.
Adam Bisnowaty OT 7 Pittsburgh rSr 6’6” 307 3rd – 4th Very good size, has the frame to add some bulk. Looks quite athletic for a man of this size, his able to bend well but lacks a bit of “dancing” feet and  when loose a steps from speedy or quick edge rusher he’s quite in trouble. When able to get his balance in the pass blocking, he does a quite good job. looks at times like he’d have not very long arms. In the passing game he’s a very good executer of zome blocking scheme and ais able to take very good angles blocking. Lacks a bit of lower body strength to be able to drive away powerfully the Dlineman from the play. 4th – 5th I think teams that will play more pure zone blocking scheme, as the 49ers probably, might have him rankjed very high. As for the Broncos, they are moving towards a mix of zone and power scgeme and Bisnowaty does not look ready to play a lot of power blocking at this point. He has the frame to add the necessary weigth and need to have the will to work hard to become a slightly different player. This is the reason why I have Bisnowaty not as high as the general grade. Still I think he has the tools to develop in a very good T in the NFL.
Will Holden OT 9 Vanderbilt rSr 6’7” 313 3rd – 4th Quick to take his stands, looks powerful and energetic and dynamic. In the runninng protection he can run well enough around the LOS and gets to the second level comfortably and with aggession. Lacks a bit of balance to keep the block on the run when the defender is moving towards the ball. Great size, lacks a but if athletic skills but uses the good deal of ones he has. Footwork will need improvement but are not at the level of LT. Might be better suited to become a RT in the NFL. 3rd Might not be the OT prospect with the greatest potential and might also be better suited to be a RT in the NFL. He still looks powerful and aggressive in his blocks which lkooks good and what the Broncos looks to like.
Marcus Maye FS 4 Florida rSr 5’11” 216 3rd – 4th Lacks a bit of height for the ideal size in the NFL. Plays very aggressive and with power, quick at coming at the LOS and tackle. Really decisive in running north-south, has some good speed. 2nd – 3rd To me he has the look of a SS with some coverage abilities. Physically he looks like DJ Ward and has the same aggressive and powerful style of game. I think the Brobcos should be very interested in him if he fall into the 3rd round and also at the end of the 2nd round, but I do know that in the past draft the Broncos selected two safeties and might not be willing to select another one as hish as I suggest. Still a very good football player that would trive in the Broncos defense.
Justin Evans SS 5 Texas A&M Sr 6’0” 199 3rd – 4th Very quick and aggressive coming in run support. Has good size a thick body and likes to hit hard.Need to make better open field tackles at times, tacking better angles. Played also as returner in kickoffs. Has some very good speed and looks very rangy. 3rd – 4th I think the Broncos could like the atheltic skills, the speed and the aggressiveness of Evans. He’s the kind of S that can play both spots on the occurrence although I think he might be better suited to play FS hhaving the eyes and the play form downfiled and having the speed and quickness the cut to the ball or ball carrier. He will need to work on his tackling technique and angles.
Jordan Leggett TE 7 Clemson Sr 6’5” 258 3rd – 4th Exceptional size. Has very good athletic skills but his hands or concenration are not elite. Lacks elite power and balance to be a solid blocker both in the run and ain the passing game. No A big bodied TE as him should be much more physical in the passing game and in the run game too. I watched some games of Clemson and he did made some plays but I didn’t see the sense of urgency and the aggressivenes I think the Broncos are looking for. Some here and there also he did not receive much targets in the playoffs and when he had, he drop some and made some great catches. Not impressive in overall game film.
Vincent Taylor DT 11 Oklahoma State rJr 6’2” 310 3rd – 4th Lacks ideal size, has the frame of a NFL NT. Has power to push backword the Olinemen when single blocked. Good burnst hitting the hole. Need to get more powerful anchoring on the field because too easy to move him by double teams od Olinemen. Lack lateral mobility while engaged by a block. 5th – 6th Lacks elite power to be regarded with an high round and lacks ideal size for NT. Gives not that much in pass rushing. I think that the Broncos could have a mid to late pick on him, for what it looks they value the position.
Chad Wheeler OT 10 Southern California rSr 6’6” 310 3rd – 4th Energic and spirited Olineman. Plays with a nasty streak, lacks a bit of footwork technique but looks to be quite effective anyhow. Is athletic but looks to have queationable arms length. Will need to get a better functional strength to help him maintain a better balance and help his technique in the NFL. Has a run in with police officers in 2015. 4th – 5th I think that if he’s sold and really willing to become a professional football plyer he might be a year of deverlopment away to become a very good player and then starter at T in the NFL. His athleticism, if surrounded by a better functional strength could let him become a very reliable LT. There are some if here and there and I don’t know if the Broncos erased him from the board because of his accident with the police in 2015. A late 4th or even better a 5th rounder. There is potential but also a lot of work to be done.
Anthony Walker Jr. ILB 4 Northwestern rJr 6’1” 235 3rd – 4th Has good size but not great. In pass defense he lacks speed and short area quickness to have very smooth and sudden change of direction. Looks to come in run dupport fast and be around the ball at the LOS. Has some pass rushing skills but lacks elite explosion. Still battled injuries all year playing with injuries and has good, though not great athletic skills. In run support is able to shed tackles and move laterally to make some good open field tackles 5th – 6th I think the Broncos looks full in athletic and fast LBs that have range and are aggressive to the ball. He has some of this skills but lacks the kind of speed the Broncos look for in a top half draft pick. Later in the draft he could be targeted because of his run stop skills and his ability to be physiscal in between the numbers for receivers.
Alex Anzalone OLB 9 Florida rJr 6’3” 240 3rd – 4th Great size, great acceleration and speed, good awareness. Lacks strength andf power and willhave to get better functional strength. Often injured in his college career. Iable to get pressure and penetrate in the backfield from the LB position. In coverage he played a lot of zone been really aware of the part of the field he was covering, reading and reacting well. 4th – 5th This grade reflect a bit the fact theat Anzalone was often inured, the lack of explosion and power and the fact that playing so much zone and not man to man. Now there is no guaranntee that the Broncos will keep playing so much man to man with wade Phillips gone, still the only indication are the player on the roster (that developed playing man to man) and the fact that the new DC said to be inclined to apply mostly the same schemes. Although I see Denver defense playing more zone depending the weekly opponent, I thgink the base system will be man to man. Late fourth round so that if injuries continue derailing his career it won’t be heavy on the organization.
Marlon Mack RB 6 South Florida Jr 5’11” 205 3rd – 4th Patient runner thatbhas some vision and has very good burnst into the hole. Is quite shifty and has very good balance. Can catch the ball out of the backfield. Has also the speed to be targeted downfield as a WR. As a runner has great acceleration and very good speed. Lacks a bit of quickness. Can place great block in open field, lacks a bit of strength to be a LOS or backfield reliable blocker. 3rd I think the Broncos should be interested on Mack because he’s a dynamic player that could be a three down back and could be used in any field and score situation. He does not excel in anything but he’s very good in most of things and while he has to improve in his LOS blocking he could still be used  and keep the defense honest. I really like what he’d bring the Denver’s offense.
Kendell Beckwith ILB 5 LSU Sr 6’2” 252 3rd – 4th Injured his knee against Florida and was out for the year. Powerful and stout linebacker, looks the leader the other players look up for. Instinctive and good tacking tackling angles. Really good as a thumper, lacks top end speed and elite change of direction in coverage. Plays decent coverage in zone scheme. Might be the best run stopper LB in the draft, ahead of Foster and Davis. 4th – 5th This is considering that his knee is been checked ok and he could play immediately at OT or at the beginnign of training camp. If he checked allright, he might be an upgrade as a rookie over Todd Davis. Might not have great upside and be a two downs linebacker for the Broncos using a man coverage scheme that is not his strong suit.
Ryan Glasgow DT 12 Michigan rSr 6’3” 299 3rd – 4th A bit undersized for a DT in the NFL but looks bigger that is actual listing. Productive player that is able to create pressure and seldomly getting the sack in the college ranks. Has very good power. Lack elite quickness and will have to bulk up in the NFL. Has quick feet but lacks elite agility. Looks to have great motor and is really stout against the run, able to locate the ball carrier in the bacjfield and to step into the running lane. 3rd He could be another good option at NT or DE for the Broncos. Will need to use his rookie year to adapt to NFL speed but looks to be relentless in pursuit and anchor quite well against the run. A bit of physical development justify my grade: in the 3rd round he could very well be on their radar, IMO.I  will not be very happy if the Broncos will taget him in the 2nd round, based on his video. The lack of elite athleticism is what separate him from the top prospects at NT for the Broncos butis ability to be always present against the run makes him a perfect candidate for the Broncos aggressive defense.
Samaje Perine RB 7 Oklahoma Jr 5’10” 235 3rd – 4th Power runner with great size. Has some speed but lacks quickness and great vision. He is fast and run naturally with the hands on the ball. Has some speed to hit the hole but lacks the second gear in open field to not allow defensive backs to get back at him. Shows very good body balance and change of direction especially while running north-south. 4th Has some of the tools CJ Anderson has too. But CJ anderson has very good vision. He could battle for the backup role but is not a explosive or speedy 3rd down runnner. He’s more of a possession style of RB. Booker was chosen at the end of the 4th round in 2016, and there where I see value for him from a Broncos perspective. Smart football player that understands situational football. I think the Broncos will really took an interested eye on him.
Wayne Gallman RB 8 Clemson rJr 6’0” 215 3rd – 4th Hard nosed runner that lacks elite quickness and speed, has some power, patience and some vision too. Lacks explosion to break through the small hole and make a big gain. Strong and powerful, able to gain extra yards after contacts. No More like a plodder that if qable to get stronger, would use his size to get some tough yards. Jack of all trades, master of none
Taywan Taylor WR 15 Western Kentucky Sr 5’11” 198 3rd – 4th Has great quickness after the catch, making defender miss the tackle because of his movement. Run good routs that together with his acceleration and speed allows him to break free. Lacks top end speed or a second gear while running with the ball to be a homerun receiver in deep throws. 3rd He’ll be  a nº2 receiver in the NFL. Has small size but great athletic skills and good speed to go with. Has very good acceleration and very good explosion. In some parts he reminds me of Emmanuel Sanders. Sanders was a 3rd rund pick, and I think that the Broncos could use a 3rd rounder (maybe the compensatory) to select him. His size could let him fall a bit more thought.
Artavis Scott WR 16 Clemson Jr 5’10” 193 3rd – 4th Lack elite explosion but has ome good movement; he is quick and precise in his route running and has good hands. Lacks elite speed and will have to bulk up in order to absorb hits from NFL defenders. Able to place good enough blocks to enable screens play to teammates. 4th The Broncos interviewd him. I tghink he’s a good route runner and has some quickness. I can see that the Broncos could see signs of a good slot receiver but in Clemson simplified offense he could show some but not much of it. To me he lacks the speed or the physicality to warrant a 3rd round pick, I see him more like a mid rounder.
Kareem Hunt RB 9 Toledo Sr 5’10” 216 3rd – 4th Has good size, will need to bulk up a bit for the NFL. Has great quickness and acceleration.Very shifty, hits the hole hard. Very dynamic, has great game speed and burnst. Has some vision and does a good enough blocks in the backfield. Even if not the biggest RB he keeps his legs turning and shows some power to break some tackles and get some extra yardage. 3rd He’s another electric running back that could be  athree down player in the NFL. He can block some, he can run inside the tackles and outside. Really dynamic might have to get better as a pass catcher downfield and be aligned at the LOS as a WR. The Broncos already used 3rd round picks in skilled RB players, he lacks elite speed and homrun skills to be in talk for an higher round.
Davon Godchaux DT 13 LSU Jr 6’4” 293 3rd – 4th Has some character concerns, very good size for a 3-4 DE, lacks quickness at the snap to be a solid 4-3 penetrating DT. Has very good awareness when “on”. Has some good power and some moves that he could use the get pressure to the QB  and is quite stout against the run for college level but will have to get stronger and more powerful in the NFL. 4th He could be a mid-round target for depth with some potential at the DE position. With some time to get acclimate he could becoem a rotational player againts the run in the 3-technique. I don’t thinj he could conistently creatte pressure as a pass rusher, he might leave the field in obvious pass situation.I would not be happy if the Broncos would select him in the third round.
Julien Davenport OT 11 Bucknell Sr 6’7” 310 3rd – 4th Great size. Played at a lower level of competition. Has very long arms and looks quite powerful. Footwork will need refining. Looks to sominate at his level of competition. Is able to keep the pass rusher blanket and in the run game strglle a bit more with moving away his opponent. 3rd Rumored to really have the Broncos interested on him. Still I think they might look at him only in the third round because he need at least one year of development and to beocme much more powerful. He can add some weight to his frame and play a better game in the run, meaner and moe powerful. He has some good athleticism and he shows it in the passing game. Still he will have to adapt to NFL speed bit that might be a smoother transition than the run protection.
DOnta Foreman RB 10 Texas Jr 6’0” 233 3rd – 4th Big powerful RB that has quick feet waiting for the home and then accelerating to hit it hard. Runs with power and use well his body to break tackles. Lacks some short area quickness and explosion at the LOS. Has some “power” speed when in open field and is quite hasd to tackle. Has some good vision and and some shiftyness to make defenders miss. 3rd – 4th Power runner that will run between the tackles most of times and at times outside more for necessity than for a direct offensive scheme. Shows less attitude than expected at blcoking and does not translate very well as pass cathcer. More of a two downs and short yardage typical power RB. If the Broncos are looking for this kind of layer he could be values quite high as even a 3rd rounder. The Broncos interviewed him at the Combine but I personally don’t see the Broncos using a such an high draft pick on a player that does not bring much versatility.
Trey Hendrickson DE 13 Florida Atlantic Sr 6’4” 266 3rd – 4th Very good size and thick body. Lacks a bit of explosion and speed at the snap. Great pursuit and play until the whistle. Great football IQ and some good athleticism. Relentless pass rusher. No Lacks a bit of quickness and explosion at the snap. Also a bit of lower body strenght to anchor well against the run. Plays untill the whistle and is relentless in pursuit. Lacksa abit of power too to ransition smoothly to 3-4 DE. I think he’s better suited to be a 4-3 DE.
Carlos Henderson WR 20 Louisiana Tech rJr 5’11” 191 3rd – 4th Lacks ideal size for nº1 or possession WR. Has ideal size for a slot receiver or for a nº2 receiver. Quick and shifty, great body balance while running with he ball, has great acceleration but lacks second gear in open field. Able to gain many yards after catch. Really good quick movements after the catch that make defender miss the tackle on him. 3rd Broncos interviewed him at the combine. He’s a playmaker in college, playing in a division where few DB can compete with his athleticism and speed. He also has very good hands and quickness. Still he’ll be a nº2 receiver in the NFL, and he could be converted in a slot receiver but the “conversion” will be a project. On the other hands he has all the looks of an athletic and quick nº2 receiver that can get a lot of yards after the catch.
Daeshon Hall DE 15 Texas A&M Sr 6’5” 265 3rd – 4th Has great size for a 4-3 DE, lacks weight for a 3-4 DE. Very powerful. Has some very good burnst and quicknes sat the snap. May lack elite speed to be an effective speedrusher in the NFL. Relentless pursuer. 5th I like a lot his game but for a 3-4 defense he’s a bit undersized and will need to gain much more strength and power. He could be used as situational pass rusher as DE in his rookie year and then he coudl compete for the starting job in year two given that he will gain size  and power.
Josh Malone WR 21 Tennessee Jr 6’3” 200 3rd – 4th Has good size and some very good body balance. Great speed and athleticism. Blocks some in open field but will have to make a much better job in the NFL. Has some shoert area quickness after catching the ball that makes his perfect target of screens because able to get a lot of yardage after the catch. 4th – 5th Elevate his draft stock with incredibles numbers at the combine. Still he had his best year in 2016 but did not porduce much the two previous years. A bit of a one year wonder that anyhow could interest the Broncos as backup for DT and could play on special teams.
Jalen Myrick CB 24 Minnesota Sr 5’10” 200 3rd – 4th Has average size for NFL CB. Very quick feet, not explosive at the snap but has some quickness and speed to get back at the WR. Returned kicks in college. Has the quickness to get to the receiver quickly after the catch. No I think the Broncos might like to look at some taller  or more physical CB in the middle rounds.
Jayon Brown ILB 8 UCLA Sr 6’0” 231 3rd – 4th Lacks height for NFL standard. Leader of UCLA defense. Very dynamic linebacker that has a very good feel for the run game and his really powerful despite his size. Lacks a bit of elite athleticism but looks to be able change direction quickly and read and react fast to the play. 5th He looks one of those dynamic players at ILB that the Broncos like a lot: no much noise but a lots of tackles around the field. Still his size plays against him. If still on the Board when the 5th round come, I think he could be the kind of player the Broncos could look for to add competition at the ILB position.
Deatrich Wise Jr. DE 20 Arkansas rSr 6’5” 275 3rd – 4th Very powerful and dynamic. Has good explosion at the snap, Plays physically and with power. Lacks elite speed. Relentless in pursue. Has great size for both 4-3 DE and 3-4 DE. In case of 3-4 DE he migh need to add some lower body strenght to be stouter against interior Olinemen pulling in the running game. 2nd – 3rd I like a lot his size, his physical and aggressive style of play. Able to create pressure, has some very good explosion at the snap and can get into the backfield. Very powerful bullrush. Needs to get a bit stouter against the run. Playng 3-4 DE will need to learn to hold better the point of attack from the Olinemen that will pull him. Still very interesting and promising prospect that might have not super ceiling but could immediately contribute in the Broncos team in passing downs.
George Kittle TE 19 Iowa rSr 6’4” 250 3rd – 4th Has good size, lacks elite speed and quickness. Willing blocker, powerful, is able to square his feet down in pass protection and is able to move and get to his assignment in run blocking. In the passing game is not a vertical threat but is capable to make the outside the box reception to move the chains. Better suited to play as HB than pure TE. Looks athletic for a player of his size. UPDATE: had an impressive Pro Day on top of an impresive Combine, he’s climbing up the analysts draft boards. 6th Blocking TE or HB that could catch some passes in short throws to move the chains. UPDATE: even after his climbing up, I still stick with wa¡hat I saw, hes a powerful an dquite athletic TE that can make some catch outside the backfield but by any stretch is a pass catching TE. He can develop into a three downs TE in some years.
Shaquill Griffin CB 42 UCF Sr 6’0” 198 3rd – 4th Good size for a NFL CB. Has excellent speed and short area quickness. Moves very well in coverage, looks more comfortable in man to man than in zone. Plays aggressive at the ball andis able to get to the WR shortly after the catch. 5th – 6th Not the most flashy CB and has some inconsistent plays. Still and physical CB that can get bigger and has the speed and quickness to play man to man coverage. Might develop into a good nickel corner in the NFL.
Dede Westbrook WR 5 Oklahoma Sr 5’11” 175 4th Will have to bulk up to be able to absorb NFL defenders hits. He is quick and fast, run good enough routes and is able to get open. Great balance and quickness. Has some very good game speed when hitting the open field with the ball. He has some characters red flags linked to him already. 6th Could be a perfect slot receiver in the NFL if he would  put the work (and a lot of it). Word id that he might not do it. He needs to bulk up, anmd become more powerful in order to absorb NFL hits. All together and between his talent and teh red flags and a 6th rounder could be worth, if Denver didn’t erase him from the board.
Noah Brown WR 14 Ohio State rSo 6’2” 222 4th Aggressive and energetic blocker. Physical player not afraid to catch the ball over the middle. Lacks elite speed but has great burnst and explosion. Very athletic has great body balance and has very good hands. Can make acrobatic catches. 2nd – 3rd A possession wide receiver that could be used in blocking or could be targeted depending on the matchup with the opponent. He does a lots of thinls in the offense and would fit the aggressiveness, sense of urgency and could be asked to do numerous things in a camaleontic offense as the Broncos are ready to set up.
Dawuane Smoot DE 11 Illinois Sr 6’3” 264 4th Powerful. Has very good size. Has great first steps at the snaps and some good quickness that allows him to penetrate in the backfield and make playes. Lacks the elite quickness and speed to be a consistent speed rusher in the NFL, better when cutting inside with hsi quick first steps and face inside Olinemen. Has some pass rushing moves that allows him to be a consistent pressurer as a pass rusher. 4th – 5th I like his intensity and his power. He is relentless and has a lot of power. He looks to me as beig a football player. If he could beef up more he could be moved to DE in the 3-4 scheme and his quick steps could be devastating. Depending if he could beef up and mainatin his short area quickness. Still much better prospect at DE for a 4-3 team at teh moment.
Howard Wilson CB 17 Houston rSo 6’0” 185 4th Has good size, Plays aggressive and has short area quickness to tackle the receiver soon after the catch. Fastcoming up in run support. Has to do a better job tackling in open space. Has very good athleticism and play the ball well. Able to cut underneath routes and tip passes. Very good vision. 5th He played in a heavy zone defense scheme and that is a minus from the Broncos point of view. He lacks top speed and has a long way to go for tackling in open field . I like his ballhowk skill and his ability to tackle quick after the catch to prevent yards after  the catch. A middle round pick for the Broncos but Wilson could be rated much higher by teams that use much more zone defense.
Kyle Fuller C 4 Baylor rSr 6’5” 307 4th Powerful and physical. Able to mantain the defender engaged to the block until the whistle. Looks to have quite good dancing feet and to be quite athletic moving around the LOS. 4th Actual Denver FO already used th 4th round to select C in two occasions and I can see them possible going to address the depth and possible create competition at the position in the 4th round with Fuller that has everythi g going ok (nasty streak, power and size, good footwork) in eone bad thing agaisnt him: that he played in Baylor like former Baylor C and 4th rounder by the Broncos Blake has been.
Zach Banner OG 8 Southern California rSr 6’8” 361 4th Played T in college. Huge player that lacks top athleticism and have more heavy foot that his teammate Wheeler. Might move to G in the NFL. Most probebly will start his NFL career at G and could develop into a functional RT. He would need to add more functional power that could help him not losing his balance and footwork against speed or quick rushers in the passing protection. In run portection he has the size and power to move away any DE he found his way in college. Has some balance issue in blocking on the run. 4th – 5th The Broncos interviewed him at the Combine. He’s a mountain of a man and provide great power at the LOS. This said he has footwork to imporve and has to be helped to find a better balance while placing the block. I see a lots of teams interested on him because of his size, but reality is that  wouldn’t like Denver to think about him before the late picks of the 4th round.
Josh Jones FS 5 NC State rJr 6’2” 215 4th Great size, thick wide body for a S. He’s a physical aggressive, hard hitter DB. Has some good range in the backfield. At time in run support has problem recognizing the ball carrier. At times gets stuck in the block and can not shed it and make a play ojn the ball carrier. Has very good acceleration and closing speed and endurance to chase ball carrier even downfield. A bit inconsistent in coverage. Played some zoen and some man to man, lacks the athletic skills to be a good man to man cover DB and has to rise his level of awareness to be a consistent zone cheme defender in the NFL. No The size and the physical style of play are really appealing. But he looks to be a great special team player that will have a quite steep lñearning curve as a DB for the Broncos that uses a lot different of coverage concepts. For teams that lacks DBs and play much more zone defense he could be rated quite high as even a 3rd round.
Travis Rudolph WR 17 Florida State Jr 6’1” 189 4th Lacks ideal size, looks a bit small for NFL srtandard. Lacks elite speed and explosion. Has good but not great hands and has good but not elite athleticism. Has very good quickness and was very reliable in his college career. 4th – 5th He lacks the athletic skills and the aggressiveness that the Broncos might need in their research for the third steady target in the passing game. Still his quickness and ability to work the DBs might led to think that he could be converted in a reliable slot receiver. A remember thsi Broncos FO taking Ravarres King out of Georgia in the 5th round of the 2013 draft. Rudolph (who is the guy that sit alone in fron tof an autistic kid at lunch during the visit to an high school) is well worth that same pick even as a slot WR project. APRIL UPDATE; his father was fatally shot while at work. The Broncos brought him in for a visit. I think Broncos FO really likes him as a player in and off the field. I upgrade my grade from 5th – 6th to 4th-5th.
Nathan Peterman QB 6 Pittsburgh rSr 6’2” 225 4th Has average size for NFL standard and will have to add some pounds. Very good decision maker. Has some quite happy feet and will have to definetely address his footwork to be able to deliver the ball in the NFL. Is able to take off and scramble if needed. Has quite good pocket awareness. Throws some really catchables balls and thrive under pressure. Has good but not a cannon of an arm. Throwing motion inconsistent at times. 4th I don’t think the Broncos will look at QB this high but I would have a even higher grade on peterman if not for his size 6’2” that is quite under the bar of what John Elway usually look for. The Broncos as per 1st of April still need to add a third QB to the team and Peterman has a lots of things to like in a young but experienced college QB. He layed under center, he played under several completely different mindset offensive coordinators at Pittsburg and looks a very good pick with some potential to at least become a very good backup QB in the NFL and the chance to become a very reliable starter.
Jarron Jones DT 14 Notre Dame rSr 6’5” 315 4th Great size. Looks lethargic at times, but other times is able to make big plays bit un pass defense and in run defense. Against the run is able to penetrate and distroy the play, against the pass he’s smart enough to be able to raise his hands and shut down some passing lanes, using his size and arms length to his favour. Lacks explosion at the snap but his able to use quickness at times. Had a long list of injuries at Notre Dame that may let his slip through the draft into the third day. 2nd – 3rd Playmaker at the NT position. Incredibly playing for Notre Dame he looks to be underrated at the moment (few days before the combine). He’s able to create havoc in the backfield and let his presence be felt although with his size he could have been more powerful and stronger. I think that under the right coaching (and the Broncos have it) he could become a dominant D-Limneman especially in an aggrassive 3-4 defense as the Broncos have. Barring character concerns I would pick him in the sencond round, talent wise. Unfortunately for Jones his long list of injuries might held him on draft boards (if not completely off them because medical concerns) until the third day of the draft. If the Broncos have him on the Board I would have a 2nd – 3rd talent grade but a 4th – 5th drafting grade taking in count injuries.
Tanzel Smart DT 15 Tulane Sr 6’1” 296 4th Looks powerful and with a non stop motor. Played until the whistle and able to make plays with his resiliency. Has some explosion at  the snap but then his steps are not helping him keeping the explosion. Has some good videos on aligning on 0-technique and then playing against the Center. Does a very good job occupying blockers and closing gaps in the running defense. 5th  – 6th He lacks some quickness to be paired with his explosion at the snap. I think the Broncos could be interested in hism as NT but he lacks ideal size at 6’1” and 296 pounds. Will need to add weight and might be a year away from being counted in some good rotation at the position.
Corn Elder CB 19 Miami (Fla.) Sr 5’10” 179 4th Defense captain,  a smaller type of CB, will have to bulk up. Has very good acceleration and plays aggressive. Very quick in coming in run support, has good tackle technique, is not shy of contact and rarely allows many yards after the catch. Plays also gunner in special teams. 3rd Lacks a bit of size, but looks to be a football player. Can do a lots of good things for a speedy and aggressive defense like the one the Broncos wants to build unders new DC Woods. He’s always around the reciver and is very quick and sudden. Has the acceleration to be used as gunner in special teams and as blitzer in defense. Has the heart and will to stay with bigger WR and TE although in the NFL the size different will be a huge factor. A bit before the end of the 3rd round if the Broncos loves him or a 4th rounder shoukd be the draft range for him. Real football player I personally like him a lot.
Jordan Morgan OG 11 Kutztown rSr 6’3” 313 4th Has good size, very powerful and big nody. He looks dominant at his level of competition, played OT but is better suited because of his size to play inside in the NFL. Very aggressive plays with a nasty streak. Has quite interesting quick feet. 3rd – 4th John Mobley played at Kutztown. I think that this would give the Broncos a certain edge at having the right infgormation in case they’d interested in Morgan.
J.J. Dielman OT 14 Utah rSr 6’5” 309 4th Brings a lot of versatility in the Oline, played all OL positions in college. Has very good size. Lacks a bit of balance and strenght. Will need to gain more lower body power to be able to anchor better against bullrush and get better functional strenght. At times not really comfortable running to the next level of defenders to place the block. Solid Olineman that would need to develop his body to be ready for NFL speed and power. No Even thought he brings a lot of versatility, I think the Broncos are looking for adding powerful and explosive players to the Oline or to add later on in the draft or undrafted free agents that could, have a good potential and long development curve. I don’t think Dielman falls in any of the above categories. If able to use one year to develop his power and strenght he could become a reliable versitile  backup in the NFL. A team that prime pass portection as Green Bay could be really higher on him than the Broncos.
Kenny Golladay WR 23 Northern Illinois rSr 6’4” 213 4th Speedy WR that has great size and good hands and very good body control making catches and running away with the ball. Lacks explosiona and short area quickness, has problema t times making defender miss when pursuing the extra yard. No Has some cmmon traits with Demaryous Thomas when he came out of collge. To me looks that although his talent he could lack the required athleticism to play as Demaryous. After the catch is often down with the first tackle and did no see him fighting for catches in traffic. Will have to get a bit bigger and may lose a bit of his game speed. did not see evidence of him blocking and doesn’t seem to me that his play is very aggressive.
Jessamen Dunker OG 13 Tennessee State rSr 6’4” 306 4th Has good size to play interior Olineman. Quite athletic but lacks abit of strenght and power. Has passable footwork but could improve it. Moving to OG will help in that regard. Has very good balance and is able to keep his stances in the pass protection. Could have problems against quick and speed rusher in the NFL. WIll need to get bigger and stronger 4th – 5th I think he is a developmental prospect that would need one year before he could be productive on offense and could compete for a starting position. Has some potential of becoming a starting OG in the NFL but will need to work hard and be developed by good coaching.
Sean Harlow OG 14 Oregon State Sr 6’4” 310 4th Powerful has good size but alcks a bit of athletic skills. At times not able to finish the block, losing the defender of letting him free before the play is over. Is able to quickly move to the LBs level and block is assignment. Has some quite slow foot. Will be better suited to play OG in the NFL. 6th To me he looks like a developmental prospect that will need to get better functional strenght and to get a btetter footwork to better maintain his balance in pass protection. Also he relied a lot in his power that for NFL standard won’t be enough anymore. He will have to adapt to NFL speed and power but looks to have been an hard worker at Oregon State so he might get the work done and become a starting OG in two, three years down the road.
Josh Reynolds WR 18 Texas A&M Sr 6’3” 197 4th  -5th Very good size and very good speed. Looks to be a very reliable pass catcher on th outside. Looks very smooth running with the balla nd has some quickness and explosion that allows him to get some extra yards after the catch. He has suddeness and runs quite good routes but has his best as deep pass target in the NFL. No I like Reynolds game, even if he’s a bit more limited in the NFL since his lack of weight. The nost I like his smooth run and balance that allows him getting to the ball and often beeing able to get some nice extra yardage after the catch because of his balance. Still Denver has already some WR on its roster that has similar skills and migh look to slot WR or big possession WR that could be solid targets in the end zoen too.
Tanoh Kpassagnon DE 12 Villanova Sr 6’7” 280 4th – 5th Captain of the team. Impressive cereer at Vilanove in termos of production. Explosive at the snap, he dominated at the level he played. Great size for a 3-4 DE has some athleticism. Could get better functional strenght and add power to his weapons. Still raw and need to refine technique and motor. 3rd – 4th I think he has the size the Broncos are looking ofr. When he’s on he’s aggressive and has that explosion at the snap that if paired with more power could become letal in the NFL as 3-4 penetrating DE. Will need better functional strenght to be a solid player against the run too. He might be only a pass rushing DE in his rookie year and could see more playing time in his second year. A nice project.
Jeremy McNichols RB 11 Boise State Jr 5’9” 212 4th – 5th Smaller type of back with very good thick body. Patient reading the Oline work, hit the hole hard when he sees it and is able to get a second gear just passed the LOS. Has some very good speed in open field and is able to catch a ball downfield mantaining his balance. Can allign as a WR. Very dynamic runner. Can place some block on bigger defenders in the backfield. Has very good burnst but lacks elite speed. 4th Very dynamic and versatily R that could play a bit as WR and as three down RB. He lacks elite speed abut has great burnst and very good explosion at the snap. Also dangerous recieving the ball out of the backfield. Very hasrd to tackle him in openm field. Because his lack of speed and size a late 3rd or a 4th rounder should be the grade with which McNichols approach the Draft by a Broncos perspective.
Vince Biegel OLB/ILB 11 Wisconsin rSr 6’3” 242 4th – 5th Lacks elite explosiona nd speed at the snap. Has very goos size for a 3-4 pass rushing OLB. Sideline to sideline pursuer. Lacks elite change of direction. Has problems at time son shedding blocks to get back into the play. Has instinct to penetrate the backfield, vision and awareness to find the ball carrier and not overrun the play. Has some serious quickness that allows him to make playes when he could shed blocks. Struggled physically against big Olinemen. Dos an overall good job againts the run when he can move around at the LOS. CFA I think that from a Brocos perspective he lacks a bit of explosion, athletic skills and balance to be a smooth and effective player as OLB. I think it would be interesting, given his quicknees and good instinct against the run, to try to develop him as 3-4 ILB. It would take one year of perhaps practice squad but he was team captain and shown a lot of determination so I lile his odds.
Conor McDermott OT 13 UCLA rSr 6’8” 305 4th – 5th Great size. Looks more stout than athletic. Does not have quick feets and is a little stiff on his back and shoulder. Has some very good power but looks to lose balance against quick or speed rushers and his not able to get it back in time to reblock is opponent. He looks to me as a developmental prospect at RT. 5th – 6th Has great size and strength. Power too is quite good, but does not have the athletic skills to ranslate into a immediate contributor in the NFL and into a LT at all. May move to RT and develop his game backing up for a year or two and then possibly taking over. Has the strength, the imposive size and the power to be a starter if he put the works in.
Corey Clement RB 12 Wisconsin Sr 5’10” 221 4th – 5th Has very good size, is able to run north south with a lot of energy, he hits the hole with speed and power and is able to break tackles once passed the Dline at the LOS. Also able to be that one cut and downfirld runner showing enough patience to let the hole open. Less performing as a blocker and as a pass catcher RB. No I think the Broncos could look at a bigger and more powerful runner or to a change of pace, sound blocking and in pass catching RB to add to hisbackfield. Clement looks to me to run with similarities to Booker and therefor I dont see the Brncos being in his market.
Danny Isidora OG 10 Miami (Fla.) rSr 6’3” 311 4th – 5th Lack elite size. Looks powerful and stout, moves quite well around the pocket to find his assignement in the running game. Has lower body power to “maul” defenders whil running. Bend quite well in the passign game although a bit stiff and times. Does not have the quickliest feet and the greatest body balance in pass protection and will need to get better at that or he’ll be a liability against quick interior pass rusher or speed rushes. 4th The Broncos interviewed him. He has the power to be a good run blocking Olineman in the NFL but needs to get quite better in the passign game, especially in his footwork and getting his balance quickly after the snap.
Carroll Phillips OLB 12 Illinois Sr 6’3” 242 4th – 5th Has good size and also some good quickness and speed. Lacks a bit of power and strength. Looks to be better suited to make the transition to 3-4 OLB. 6th I think the Broncos are looking for a big pass rusher that is very aggressive and has high motor. Phillips is a good prospect at 3-4 OLB but lacks a bit of the aggressive play. Will need to bulk up and learn how to drop in coverage. He’s a more a development prospect than what it could look like.
Stacy Coley WR 19 Miami (Fla.) Sr 6’1” 193 4th – 5th Looks smaller than his listed size. Will have to bulk up a bit. Very quick in changing direction, has very good burst in the catch and run situation. Run precise routes. Lacks a bit of flash and in some game is not targeted much. 5th – 6th Has average size but the quickness and the route running are interesting. Has to be seen if he’s on Broncos board: my main question would be why in some game he wasn’t a factor.
Marquez White CB 20 Florida State Sr 5’11” 191 4th – 5th Experienced and opportunistic CB. Has some speed but not elite. Looks smooth in coverage and has played a lot od man to man scheme. Aggressive and fast coming in run support. 4th I like his aggresive style, his experience and cover skills. Lacks a bit of size and so I think that in this deep CB class he could be targeted between the 4th and the 5th round.
Brian Hill RB 13 Wyoming Jr 6’1” 219 4th – 5th Inside runner that has some size and hits the LOS hard.  More quick than fast. Would need to become more powerful. Has some vision and can make defender miss with some elusiveness and quick move. . Lacks ideal speed and explosion, he’s a energetic player that will need to develop more power and strenght to matain his style of play in the Pros. Not a WR at the LOS. 6th – 7th The Brobcos interviewed him at the Combine. If not for that I would say that he’s not adding any new skill to the actual roster. Still I don’t think he’s worth a 4th round pick because he’s tall but not powerful, he’s more of a fast runner that has some elusiveness and instinct but that would need time to be ready to use his quick feet and shiftyness against sthe speed and power of NFL defenders.
Nazair Jones DT 16 North Carolina rJr 6’5” 295 4th – 5th Grreat size, has room to get more weight. A bit slow moving his body around, has size to be dominant but actually do a solid job occupying spaces and double teams at times. Lacks quicknes at the snap but looks to have very good balance and lower body strength to hold the push of Olinemen and anchor to the ground against the run. 4th He has the size the Broncos like and has the power to hold and anchor in the running game. Will need time to develop and adpat to NFL speed and power but could become in a really functional 3-4 Dlinemen that  would consider the Broncos one of those teams that have him ranked quite high.
Hunter Dimick DE 14 Utah rSr 6’3” 274 4th – 5th Has size and power for a 4-3 DE. A bit undersized for a 3-4 DE. Has some burnst at the snap and some speed, lacks elite explosion but is still powerful in his pursuit. Lacks elite athleticism but looks to understand what is going on in the field and plays hard.  Always around the the action around teh LOS. Plays aggressive and with high motor. CFA I really like Dimick effort, knowledge of the game. I think he should be drafted but I have a lower grade for the Broncos only because I think Dimick body type is not really copling well with the Bronbcos scheme, I think he could be a run stopping DE in the 4-3 scheme in the NFL. I like a lot his motor and him being relentless and making a lot of playes always being focus. Football player. For the Broncos he could be tryed at 3-4 DE or, if he can trim down his weigth and gaining a bit of quickness, maybe at OLB. But he would be a project meanwhile as 4-3 DE he should be a mid-round pick.
James Conner RB 14 Pittsburgh rJr 6’2” 240 4th – 5th Lacks elite explosion and speed running the ball. Soft hands, quite good ball catcher. Has the size of a big TB in the NFL. Big leader on the team. Very good body balance. Very good blocker in the backfield. I said that he lacks elite speed but he has some interesting speed especially when he takes momentum runnig is really hard to tackle him down for a linebacker or defensive back because of his speed, power and size. 5th – 6th I love the leadership he brings to the table and the fact that he’s an hard nosed football player. This said he’s be a tailback in the NFL because of his pass catching skiils and his ability to block. He’s too slow to be a RB and also lacks elite athleticism. Still he brings a lot of versatility to a team as the 2017 Broncos that would define their offense always taking in mind their weekly opponent. A late 5th or a 6th rounder could be the moment where the Broncos would target him.
Donnel Pumphrey RB 15 San Diego State Sr 5’8” 169 4th – 5th Very small RB that has speed, quickness and very good vision. His lower center of gravity helps him having great balance and being very elusive. Still will need to bulk up to be able to sustain NFL defenders power and hits. Great running the ball, his elusivenees helps him making miss defenders. He’s also quite a sure catcher out of the backfield. Given his size blocking is not really an option in the NFL. 3rd – 4th His size raise injury concerns for NFL standards but McCoy used Woodhead greatly in San Diego and Pumphrey is even much better runner. He can run good enough routes and be moved around the LOS just as or even as a more dangerous weapon than Woodhead was under McCoy. The Broncos were rumored to be interested in Woodhead as a Free Agent, Pumphrey could be the same or even more dangerous player for the Broncos under McCoy.
Jonnu Smith TE 9 Florida International Sr 6’3” 248 4th – 5th Lacks ideal size for a NFL TE. Will need to work on hi blocking at the LOS because at times very ineffective what he’s late engaging it, will need to get stronger and more powerful. Runs precise short to intermediate routs, is fluid and comfortable running, has speed to be a deep threat on the seam route. Has very good short area quickness that uses to make defender miss. Runs with power and is able to break some tackles. He looks to take off some plays when he’s assigned to block. 5th – 6th I think the Broncos could look at him as a smaller type of TE that has versatility and could be a deep threat, kind of player that is not on the roster at the moment.
Jamaal Williams RB 17 Brigham Young rSr 6’0” 211 4th – 5th Has good size, will have to bulk up a bit in the NFL. Has good vision and some very good burnst. Lacks a bit of short area quickness and elite speed. More of a inside the tackles runner, brings power and hits the hole very fast. Trusted a lot at blocking but actually he pushes more than really block. Can be a receiver coming out of the backfield. CFA He’s a bit more limited as three downs RB and does not provide the versatility than other RB in the draft. Looks big but will need to become more powerful. Could become a good backup.
KD Cannon WR 26 Baylor Jr 5’11” 182 4th – 5th Explosive at the snap, has very good acceleration and big time catches skills. Drops issue too. Very comfortable  to run after the catch, shows great balance and a very good speed. Very athletic and with great leap. Can bock some in open field. Runs OK routes. 5th If the Broncos are looking for a Emmanuel Sanders backup, Cannon looks perfect for that role. Has drops issue and because og thet the Broncos could drop him from 4th round completely out of the Board, depending what this new coaching staff thinks about correcting this issue. Able to make great plays otherwise.
Brian Allen CB Utah rSr 6’3” 215 4th – 5th Has great size for a CB, lacks elite athleticism on the field and has good speed for a man of his size, still lacking elite quickness and speed. Played in special teams too. Looks to lack a bit of explosiona and power. 5th Had a great combine and put up numbers that would give evidence of being really explosive, which I didn’t see on the field. Stll he has great size and has frame to become a bit bigger. The Broncos will be in the market for a CB and he could be one of the CBs under their radar but not until the mid-rounds.
Mack Hollins WR North Carolina Sr 6’4” 221 4th – 5th Tall WR that has very good speed for his size. Lacks a bit of physicality because tall and not very thick but is able to place very good blocks on the open field. Plays in special teams as gunner. Capable of stretching the field and make acrobatic catches. May lack some explosion and a bit of balance to be a possession WR and go over the middle. Runs good enough routes and plays very aggressive. Lost for the season in October 2016 for injury and battled though several injuries during his college career but still had a productive one. 4th I think that he recent injury (Broke Collarbone against Miami (FL) together with the previous minor injuries he played through and his thin fram would scare a lots of teams off, especially because he plays aggressive and is not afraid of placing block on defender much more powerful than him. Still he has aunique skillset and could be chosen earlier.
Bucky Hodges TE 4 Virginia Tech rJr 6’6” 245 5th Great size. Moves well on te field and is really versatile. Plays very physical, can run the ball and also has nice hands. Looks really natural with the ball in his hands and looks very athletic for his size. He blocks some but is not a good finisher, too many times his assignment is able to shed the block towards the ends and still get to the ball carrier. Also si not the most polished routes runner. Lacks a bit of quickness and athletic skills. 4th He brings a lot to the table and has several area where good coaching together with his wiil could rturn him into a playmaker in the NFL. Has great size and is very versatile. Will need to get stronger also to develop a better functional strenght (and in this the Broncos are one of the best teams in helping players to accomplish) and will need to learn how to keep his aeareness high so that he could break free running routes. I think the Broncos could have an higher grade on him than many other teams because of his size and versatility.
Damontae Kazee CB 18 San Diego State rSr 5’10” 184 5th Really fast on getting to the receiver after the catch. Has vey good read and react skills. Explosive in leaping and in coverage lacks a bit of short area quickeness. Not very active in run support but looks more due to defensive scheme that anything else. Does not play very physical but is very aggressive ot the receiver. Lacks ideal size, 5th Two time most valuable defensive player of Moutain west division with a tons of plays on his back and is pretty much flying under the radar. I think the biggest reason of it is because of his lack of size and the scheme he played in that was enhancing his best traits: read and react and allowing him excelling in coverage. Still A team as the Broncos that might look to add depth to CB position in middle rounds could find him and won’t have to start him as a rookie but allowing him to adapt. he could become a very good nockel CB if given the time.
Rayshawn Jenkins FS 6 Miami (Fla.) rSr 6’1” 214 5th Instinctive and good tackler in open field. Aggressive, not the most rangy S in the draft. Coming fast in run support and shows good instinct. Lacks elite speed, has some good top end- 6th Plays aggressibe and is bale to eplosive plays in run support and blitzes but coverage man to man and lateral speed not quite there. I think the Broncos would not look for a S early un the draft and they might look at him only if he falls into the 6th round because his plays agains the run and potentially in special teams could become too much to be passed on.
Ryan Switzer WR 22 North Carolina Sr 5’8” 179 5th Soft velvet hands as receiver and experienced and tricky returner in special teams. Looks quick and has very good initial burnst. Run quite good routes and knows where to position himseld to get open and better defend teh ball. His size could be a concern in the NFL with big, explosive and powerful LBs and DBs. Crafty WR that has been very productive and consistent in college.  Veru athletic, can make acrobatic catches. He does not provide great pass rush but from time to time when dnot doubleteamed is ablt to push back the Olineman into the backfield. 4th – 5th In nowadays NFL a very good slot receiver is a must. Denver does not have it and Switzer looks to be the right man to become a very good slot receiver and returner in the NFL. Anyhow most of NFL best slot receiver were UDFA because of their size and concerns about their durability in a always more powerful and “size matter” league. The same principle will apply to Switzer, he will be drafted but I would prefer if Denver start looking at him from the 4th down on, even thought he might be a good conributor from day 1.
John Johnson FS 7 Boston College Sr 6’1” 205 5th Physical and aggressive S that is athletic but lacks a bit of closing speed to be very rangy. Still able tofight with big TEs. Able to place very good tackles in open field. Very quick tackling after the receiver catch. Has very good quickness and read and react. Come fast to the LOS in run support. 4th – 5th Less athletic than his partner from one year ago Simmons but very instinctive and physical. I don’t think the Broncos would look at s in the middle rounds because they draft two S last in 2016 but I might see them having a late 4th early 5th on Johnson that looks smaller that his listed size and might need to bulk up a bit and mainly adjust his game to NFL speed. If he falls DEnver might select him late in the draft because the muche higher grade they could have on him (in the 7th he could be between the highest players remaining on their board).
Eddie Vanderdoes DT 18 UCLA rJr 6’3” 320 5th Has very good size for a NT or a 1 – technique DT. Lacks elite athleticism and does not look aggressive on every snap, slow at time. Also lacks elite power and strenght but looks to have quite good short area movements that allos him to move quickly laterally.Has some real quickness at the snap but lacks explosiona to use power and size against interior Olinemen. 5th – 6th I’m not really a fan. I do understand anyhoew that he could  become a good rotational player if developed and used correctly. Will need time to get used to NFL speed and power and to get stronger. His quickness at the snap and short area quickness if used wuith more power would make him a very good Dlineman in the NFL and a very good NT for time to come for the Broncos.
Sam Rogers FB 1 Virginia Tech Sr 5’10” 231 5th Built very thick, has some good speed for his size. Looks very stout. Able to catch the ball with ease out of the backfield and break tackles to get exra yardage. Shows very good atheltic skills at 230 pounds. Able to block well, especially in open field. 5th – 6th The Broncos darfted in 2015 their FB that has very similar skills to Rogers. I think thet the Broncos won’t be on the market for a FB but might grade Rogers similarly to Janovich that is a bit bigger than Rogers and was selected at the beginning of the 6th round in 2016.
Channing Stribling CB 21 Michigan Sr 6’1” 179 5th Great height for the position, will have to bulk up. Has very good straight line speed that could make him a good cover corner in the NFL. Has very good awareness and makes good open field tackles. 4th He maybe not be the fastest or the flashiest corner prospect in this deeply talented class, but plays very aggressive and looks to be a good open field tackler. I think that both skills are really weighted by the Broncos and for this reason they might have him rated a bit higher than the consensus. And I’m really good with it.
Jeremy Sprinkle TE 10 Arkansas rSr 6’5” 256 5th Aggressive and stout blocker both at the LOS and in open field. Able to catch the ball smoothly in the short area and to run with it with power showing very strong stiff arm. Has very good acceleration and runs quite good routes. Lacks elite speed but has good balance to get catches on the run. 3rd – 4th IMO one of the best prospect for what it’s missing on Denver roster. He would be a terrific added blocker for the Broncos, very physical that can be used also in the passing game in short and intermediate routes. He’s not a vertical threat but might just be the most powerful blocker TE in the class.
Matthew Dayes RB 16 NC State Sr 5’9” 207 5th Very good pass catcher RB, can catch out of the balckield, in screen and could aso align at the LOS at the outside or at the slot position. Very dangerous in open field and when has the complete vision in front of him, he’s fluid running and very powerful with some very good short area quickness that makes him elusive. Not the most explosive of fast RB. Lacks elite speed. As a runner he runs with power, shows a bit les of vision that as an open field receiver but still very dangerous. Lacks exlosion and speed to be a homrun threath. 6th I like his versatility as a runner he could run outside runs and between the tackles: has the body and the power to do that. Even more as a receiver he could get the ball out of the box as a WR and gets very good yardage after the catch providing thet he has open field in from of him. The Broncos miss his kind of player and he’s one of the few in this darft that could be doing for them from his rookie year.
Marquel Lee ILB 7 Wake Forest Sr 6’3” 230 5th Hard nosed ILB that plays aggressive and physical against the run. Lacks short area quickness and change of direction, More of a run stuffer LB. Lacks speed and quickness in pass coverage. No The Broncos looks for more athletic and side to side LB more than bigger run stuffer that would be a liability in pass coverage.
De’Angelo Henderson RB 25 Coastal Carolina rSr 5’7” 208 5th Small but thick and powerful. Has some good burnst with the ball in his hands, able to break tackles by running through defenders at his level of competition. Does not have soft hands out of the backfield. Has some speed to run also outside runs. No I think the Broncos might look for versatile backs with speed and quickness. He might convert to FB in the NFl if he’ll be able to get better at blocking and catching the ball. Power runner.
Isaiah McKenzie WR 37 Georgia Jr 5’8” 170 5th As punt returner he has great quickness and lower body balance makes his very elusive. As a receiver not a great route runner. CFA I think that he’s an option as punt returner because of his quickness. Anyhow I didn’t see anough as WR to warrant a draft selection. Still if undrafted, he could be an high commodity in training camp, competing for the returner spot on the roster meanwhile been developed as a receiver.
Blair Brown ILB 16 Ohio rSr 5’11” 238 5th Lacks size for NFL stndards at LB. Has quickness and soem good game speed. Is coming fast and with good instinct in run support and is able to drop in coverage a bit. 6th – 7th His size and the level of competition are the biggest concern. Loos very athletic on the field and very productive but still I think that the Broncos would targeting him, if his size qualified him as draftable, fro the 6th round on.
Jermaine Eluemunor OG Texas A&M rSr 6’4” 332 5th Big body upfront. Lacks quickness at the snap and does not showcase the power and strenght that could be forecasted in a man of his size. Still use his size and strength to be succesful in the running game and show some surprising balance in the pass protection. Needs to do a better job with his footwork in pass protection. CFA I like the size but at the same time I might worry about his ability on not balloing up. Also he’d need to get mouch stronger and more consistent in his game.
Elijah Lee OLB 10 Kansas State Jr 6’3” 220 5th – 6th Very good size, has wide frame that would allow him to add some weight. Lacks short area quickness and elite athleticism. Lacks elite speed. Looks very powerful tackling at the LOS and around it. Lacks the speed to play man to man with RB or slot receivers. Will have to get better in coverage. May be more suited to play for a them that uses zone schemes over man to man. No I think that Denver looks more to quickness and speed, to side to side LBs that could be developed into powerful tackler. He’s more of a big size LB that actually lacks some of the skills that the Broncos really looks to value.
Connor Harris ILB 6 Lindenwood Sr 5’11” 241 5th – 6th Div II recorman for tackles. Makes a tons of plays at his level of competition being quite domeninant. Very fast in  read and react, very good instinct and football IQ. Lacks the speed to cover RB or speedyy Tes but really aggressive and fast coming in run support. Good tackling skills. Lacks a vit of height for NFL standards at the position but his really thick and looks quite powerful. CFA He does not have the size for improving the actual roster at the position. Would compete for the 4th ILB spot. I like what he bring, in terms of intensity and hard work, to the team but it happens that the other four ILB the Broncos had on the 53 men roster in 2016 are quite similar blue collar players too.
Dan Skipper OT 12 Arkansas Sr 6’9” 317 5th – 6th Huge size, has a bit of a slow feet. Very powerful in the run game where he’s able to pull away defenders, also lack elite footwork and athletic skills to be a LT in the NFL but has the power, balance and the ahletic skills to be a mauler at RT. Plays with some kind of nasty streak too, aggressive and with awareness. Could have probelm in the pass protection with speed and quick rusher. 5th He could become the RT of the Broncos for the next eight years. Will need a year to get ready for the speed and power, could be used meanwhile as added Olineman in some power formation.
Jadar Johnson SS 7 Clemson Sr 6’0” 198 5th – 6th Lacks ideal size. I think he lacks a bit of range to run side to side. I watched several Clemson games and I don’t really have a big play or anything apart the game he went out injured against Florida State (I think) where he was playing more SS and coming down in run support a lot. Apart that game not much to talk and Clemson defense gave up tons of points in 2016. No I don’t think the Broncos are looking steadily to draft a S, they draft two in 2015. If the right guy would fall to us they may pull the trigger. I don’t think Johnson would add any ingredient the Broncos miss in the roster they have.
Ejuan Price OLB 14 Pittsburgh rSr 5’11” 246 5th – 6th Lacks size and explosion at the snap, has some push but lacks the elite speed to be effestive in the NFL. Very productive at college level as a pass rusher and Dlineman. CFA Unfortunately I think he’s too small and lacks elites explosion at the snap to be a consistent pass rusher as 4-3 DE in the NFL and lacks elite athleticism and speed to be consistent 3-4 pass rushing OLB. If he’d fell into UDFA his college productivity will for sure make him an interesting two years deveopment project at OLB for the Broncos….if he’s actually faster than what his combine performance would indicate.
Aarion Penton CB 23 Missouri Sr 5’9” 177 5th – 6th Has some speed and is quite explosive in his jumps, challenging taller receivers in the air. Will definetely need to bulk up. Fast to com in run support and to get to the ball carrier. Makes some very good tackles in open field. 6th -7th His size is his biggest limit to make it in the NFL. He plays quite aggressive and really is able to cover man to man with his speed and to come up and make a tackle at the LOS. I think the Broncos are in the market for a young DB and he has the style and mental trait of the player the Broncos are looking for.
Charles Walker DT 19 Oklahoma rJr 6’2” 304 5th – 6th Suffered multiple concussion. Limited playing time in 2015 and 2016 because of that. Lacks ideal size for NFL DT. Has some quicknes at the snaps, will have to become a bit more powerful mataining that quickness. CFA Because his concussion injury history, I think he could slide even more in the draft and eventually not being drafted at all. In that case, I could see the Broncos go after him and eventually getting a very good player that will compete for a roster spot.
Storm Norton OT 16 Toledo rSr 6’8” 308 5th – 6th Huge size, quite athletic at 6’8”, has some kind of heavy feet. Has frame that would allow getting more pounds on. Has some good strength, lacks a bit of power to blow defenders away. Would need better functional strength. In pass protection has good awareness and bends well his knees. Recuperate his lacks of great footwork with very good athleticism.  In the running game he’s quick at the snap and moves comfortably around the LOS. 4th – 5th Interviewed with the Broncos. He’s the kind of big Olineman that the new coaching staff is looking for. May become a resilient and productive swing T in the NFL, will need to get stronger and more powerful. Best scenario he could become a starting RT in year two. I like his athleticism but his slow feet are something of a concern against NFL quick and speed rusher.
Elijah McGuire RB 18 UL Lafayette Sr 5’10” 214 6th Dynamic player. He runs well behing a leading puller. Has loer center ao greavity and has great balance. Very dangerous when running with the ball in open field: has great vision and with his balance and elusiveness knows how to make defender miss. Runs with power but lacks a bit of size to be succesful at that behind the LOS. Can catch he ball out of the backfield and does align in the slot. Smooth catcher out of the backfiled. Can place some blocks but is not engaging blocks at the LOS. Lacks elite speed and athleticism. Niot the smoother running LB of the class. CFA Could be a great addition to training camp and could make a seious push for a 53 men roster spot as 4th RB mainly because of his skills running the ball catchnig it out of the back field. Also to be seen in training camp how he could fare by running the ball behind the FB. Might turns some heads.
Devine Redding RB 19 Indiana Jr 5’10” 208 5th – 6th Smaller but thick type of runningback, dynamic and quick but lacking elite vision. Not great pass catcher and could have problems with fumbles. Has some good speed and change of pace, can brteak tackles but looks to lack elite explosion. No I don’t see which skill he’ll add to the unit the Broncos have already in place.
Zane Gonzalez K 1 Arizona State Sr 6’0” 201 5th – 6th
Trent Taylor WR 27 Louisiana Tech Sr 5’8” 177 5th – 6th Undersized WR that has quickness ad very good burnst. Good hands. Also a willing blocker in the passing game but cannot rely on his strength and power to block in the NFL. Runs good routs and is able to make defender miss the tackle. 5th – 6th I love what I saw in his videos but i wonder if he can take NFL hits with his actual size. Does not look to have much room to get bigger and what it would be the impact of that on his style of play. This said he’s a very good football player that uses all the skills he has and has great football IQ. A perfect slot WR projection
Austin Rehkow P 1 Idaho Sr 6’3” 205 5th – 6th
Ishmael Zamora WR 29 Baylor rSo 6’3” 220 5th – 6th Big wideout withvery good short area quickness and some serious speed for a player of his size. Not a very consistent open field blocker. Not really participanting to the play when he’s not the possible target or is a run play. No I don0t like he not participating on plays where he won’t be the target. Detrimental to teh team, the defender will imeediately understand and get a chance to make a play against the run. He has size and quickness and runs good routes when he think he could get the ball, but effort is not always there when he won’t get the ball.
Brendan Langley CB 25 Lamar (TX) rSr 6’0” 199 5th – 6th Great size and shows very good athleticism and short area quickness. Has the skills to play man to man corner in the NFL.Not very aggressive against the run, could develop better read and react to offensive plays. At times lethargic. No The Broncos like athletic and aggressive players that are always looking to make a play and to get to the ball as fast as they can.
Jeremy Cutrer CB 26 Middle Tennessee Sr 6’1” 170 5th – 6th Has good height but lacks size. Will need to get stronger and more powerful. Strggle to shed blocks by WRs in open fields. Very quick and dynamic against the pass. Has good closing speed, lacks elite short area quickness and could play a bit more aggressive. No He has some good coverage skills and his size could become a very important factor in the NFL if he’ll be able to get bigger and stronger. Still I think the Broncos would like to see more aggression in the playing style.
T.J. Logan RB 22 North Carolina Sr 5’9” 195 5th – 6th Smaller size back that has a lot of power and plays with a great balance. Has good vision, lacks elite speed but is explosive. Quite natural catching the ball and fluid running with it. Not shy of contact, is able to break some tackle too. COMBINR UPDATE: he has a great combine prefrormace. His general grade projection passed from 6th to 7th to 5th. 5th Interesting runner that has some pass catching skills that will need to work on as  well as his pass blocking skills. Lacks elite game speed and quickness but can do a number of things on a running oriented offense. Still will need to develop his skills into a more rounded player in order to make a 53 men roster. Maybe in practice squad for a year and then if he’ll be able to contribute in any situation he could surely cut his role into a team. COMBINE UPDATE: He really impressed in the combine with great speed, athleticism and explosiveness. Most porbably will be drafted. If the Broncos really want him they migh need to use a 5th round pick to select him. I change my grade from CFA to 5th.
Cameron Tom C 6 Southern Mississippi Sr 6’3” 291 5th – 6th Quick to get his stands after the snap and athletic. Has good height for an inside Olineman, will have to get bigger. Has good balance and is able to bend well his knee to block in the passing game. Is quite strong and powerful, owever in the NFL will need to be even more powerful. CFA I think that he could be much higher in the boards aof teams that will run mainly zone blocking scheme at the Oline. His athleticism and ability to move are quite clear. He will need time to adapt his game and body to NFL speed and power and to learn, most probably, a much more complicate playbook.
Cole Hikutini TE 14 Louisville Sr 6’4” 247 5th – 6th Good size, may have to add some weight. DO some blocking at the LOS and is able to find soft spot on defense running quite precise routes. Looks comfortable catching the ball. Has some good balance and can get some big hit and still run after breaking the tackle. Lacks elite athleticism and speed. Won’t stretch the field but can be a good enough all around the LOS TE. 5th – 6th Kind of veritile TE that is the jack of all the trades but is master of none. He does not excel in any peculiar category but id already solid in all of them. Could get a bit bigger and stouter in blocking especially at the LOS but if the Broncos are still looking for a reliable TE that can contribute some as a rookie in the end of the middle rounds he could be there.
Joshua Dobbs QB 10 Tennessee Sr 6’3” 216 5th – 6th Has good size wbut will have to bulk up. Looks natural throwing the ball down field, has very good arm strenght and very good downfield accuracy too. Is very good moving around the pocket and scrambling. Able to prolongue the play and find some open receiver looking downfield. He will have to work on his footwork in order not o rely much on his athleticism. Still have to get better in pocket awareness. Inconsistent play, when he’s a bit off time he really struggle making decisions. 6th Strangely he could be drafted higher than Siemian. Well Siemian was injured during the draft process and was rehabbing plus played at Northwestern without being the clear starter (funny how life repeats at times). Still Dobbs has a very goos arm, quite good delivery, good spiral. his thows has always speed and power. He can scramble very well and is a great athlete. He still have to imporve drastically in some basic NFL QB things like footwork and decision: pocket awareness. If the Broncos are willing to darft a 3rd string QB late he could be the one also because his game has some similarity with Lynch and could become a very good backup on a system that primes what Lynch does best.
Dylan Cole OLB 24 Missouri State rSr 6’0” 233 5th – 6th Lacks a bit of height for NFL ideal. Put on a show in his Pro Day, scoring numbers that wouls show great speed, explosion and athleticism. With the cleats on the story is a bit different. He lacks instinct to play ILB in the NFL. He also is not very aggressive. Tackling is something he has to work on, not always is able to take good angles and strenght and power are something he will have to work on before he could tackle a NFL experienced RB. Lacks quickness and explosion at the snap, at times is out of his gap in run defense. Looked better as SLB in 2015 at Missouri State but did not dominate there too. No I think that the number he scored at his Pro Day if matched by videos, would make him a 1st round pick and exactly what the Broncos like and are looking for to upgrade the position. The videos shows something different gfrom the workout numebers. He still showcase a great speed for a 235 pounder, he has more speed than his former teammates at DB.
Lorenzo Jerome SS 6 Saint Francis (PA) Sr 5’10” 202 6th Has greatgood for the position withe wide frame to add more weight. Lacks speed and a bit of quickness. Aggressive. Played at a lower level and was dominant at that level. Big hitter. Good tackler  around the LOS, less in open field and will have to get better at his tackling angles in open field. Had some interception too but looks better suited to pay in the box SS in the NFL. No Lacks the speed and  athleticism the Broncos value at the position although looks aggressive and quite stout in atckling at the LOS.
Josh Carraway DE 16 TCU rSr 6’3” 241 6th Has good size for a 4-3 DE and even better one for 3-4 OLB. Played DE in college. Has some quickness at the snap and some good speed to go with in the outside rush. Lacks explosion and power to have an affective bullrush in the NFL. Playes DE in a 4-3 defensive schem in college and doesn not have experience in coverage. No I like his size but he lacks a bit of athleticism and explosion. I think the Broncos are looking to add an OLB via draft but they may looks for someone that could provide versatility and could eventually be aligned as ILB or OLB.
Jerod Evans QB 8 Virginia Tech Jr 6’3” 232 6th Has good size for a mobile QB. Lacks elite speed butr is quite shifty and very athletic. As a passer he lacks some armstrength and lacks a bit of accuracy in deep throws. The scheme he played was not required much defence reading in regard of throws but more of run option. No I don’t think the Broncos are on the market for a option QB. I thonk that Evans is a really good athlete but need to be drafted (if he will) by a team that believe they could develop his as a passer and are willing to expect him for two to three years. Maybe the Bills if they don0t draft one of the top QB in this class in the first three rounds could take him in the 6th. Could also end up undrafted and maybe it won0t be too bad for him having then to pick the team where to start his career.
Stevie Tuikolovatu DT 20 Southern California rSr 6’1” 350 6th Aggressive and powerful, lacks ideal size but he’s still dynamic and stout. A little bit older than the usual prospect, his will and desire to play Pro should be tested in interview and meetings. Has quickness for a guy of his size and looks quite explosive at the snap. 5th – 6th I like his aggressiveness and he could be a very good pick up and NT towards the middle of the third day of the draft. He0s able to create havoc from the NT position against teh run, can anchor well and might require double teams to be moved away, freen¡ing in Denver case one of the quick LB to jump in and make the play. I think the doubt on him it might be if weight issue.
Jordan Sterns FS 8 Oklahoma State Sr 5’11” 196 6th Average size but very thick and stout body. Not afraid of collision, quick and powerful in coming to the LOS to make a tackle. Has good enough tackling technique. Able to deliver big hits on receivers in coverage. Lacks elite but has good speed. Lacks elite athleticism. Stout in goal line situations, able to come and deliver the tackle. 7th – CFA The Broncos drafted two S in the 2016 draft, so I think it’s quite doubtful they woukld draft another one especially during the third day of the draft with the exception they will keep the last two picks in the draft. I like a lot the video I saw on him, he’s a real football player, a bit undersized but aggressive and playes really hard in the box. If he would be staill there at the end of the draft, given the deep class at S, I would lreally like the Broncos to select him. He could compete for a DB back-up spot as a rookie.
DeVeon Smith RB 20 Michigan Sr 5’11” 220 6th Looks to be a patient runner, moves behind the Oline waiting for the right hole to open. Lacks elite explosion but runs with power. Has very good size for a RB and has very good quickness and change of direction. Has very good vision and hits the hole with speed. Very good pass blocking RB. 5th Manybe not the fastest and quickliest of the running back but his patience and vision would make him a productive running back as a back up. He could have between 10 to 20 carries per game and in tandem with another 15 to 25 carries RB that would be the featured RB could become really dangerous in relieving him. His patuence and quickness in change direction together with some very good vision could make him very interesting for the Broncos even though Denver darfted Booker last year. he’s not a change of pace and CJ Anderson is a similar but better RB. Still I think he’s underrated at this point and the combine starts today. He could and shoudl be a middle rounder.
Bryan Cox DE 18 Florida rSr 6’3” 264 6th Powerful and explosive at the snap, lacks elite quickness and use his bull rush to move the Olineman into the backfield or most times will try to beat the Olineman around the edge. Has good size for a 4-3 RDE and less suited for the 3-4 scheme. Plays really aggressive, with a sense of urgency and great football IQ. Team oriented player. CFA I really like him but his size id not really what Denver looks for in D-linemen and he looks to lack the athletic skills to be a reliable 3-4 OLB. In case he’d go undrafted then for Denver would be reeally interesting to get him to training camp and figure out the best position where to use him: he could develop into a very good interior pass rusher in passing downs.
Michael Roberts TE 12 Toledo Sr 6’4” 270 6th Physical player that is not afraid of contact. Has some very good explosion and could place an effective block at the LOS. Is able to overpower LB in blocking and trhen explode into be a out of the backfield receiving target. Looks smooth and comfortable running. Has very good balance and is able to start and maintain a block on the run. Lacks the speed to stretch the field bit has very good short area quickness and athletic skills to gain some very good extra yard after a catch. Struggle to get separation running intermediate rounts. 4th – 5th Roberts could bring a lot of flexibility to the Broncos offense, if the Broncos are looking to bolster their TE group  withinthe middle to late rounds. In this case, Roberts could bring in a three down capability, is able to line up at the LOS as added Olineman, as  slot WR and as TB in the backfield. Can place very powerful and aggressive blocks both at the LOS and in open field and can catch especially in short distance situations. Not the tallest or the biggest TE in the NFL but could be really useful to a McCoy offense or a New England offense.
Tedric Thompson SS 9 Colorado Sr 6’0” 211 6th Quick in reacting to the ball and fast coming in run support from the S position. Very athletic, has a wide frame that would allow him to add some weight. Plays physical and has some good closing speed to chase ball carrier from behind. Lacks a bit of change of direction and short steps quickness. 6th – 7th I like him and his athletic skills. I like his physical style. I’m not sure the Broncos would use a pick for a S since they drafted two in 2016. Still he has the kind of mindset that would go well with Denver D, especially with the defensive backs.
Jeremiah Ledbetter DT 21 Arkansas Sr 6’3” 281 6th Good size for a 3-4 interior Dlineman. Very strong and powerful, able to be engaged in a blcok and move it to close the gap and make the play at the LOS. Lacks some explosion at the LOS but is relentless and holds well the Olinemen pulling. 7th – CFA Lacks a bit of height for what the Broncos like at DE buit has all the rest of the tools. Might not have the highest ceiling but after get used to NFL speed and power he could become a good rotational player.
Eric Saubert TE 13 Drake rSr 6’5” 253 6th Pass catching TE, has very good size and looks to have solid hands. Dominated at his level of competition but I cannot see dominant blocking skills. Looks to be a lower level of competition pass catching TE that lacks elite speed and quickness. Not really explosive on the field either. CFA There are question marks over how he would play with much better competition. Bringing him at training camp is the way to know it. I don’t see enough speed and athletic skills to warrant a draftable grade. He was just bigger and more powerful than the rest of the players around at his level of competition.
Chad Kelly QB 9 Ole Miss Sr 6’2” 224 6th Has very average size in terms of NFL QB. Has a quick delivery and a bit mechanical throwing motion. Throws balls with good spiral and good enough accurancy. Footwork will need to be fixed because he looks to have really happy feet and then he throws by just standing. Looks to be able to perform coverage reads while in the backfield and is quite fast in checking his WR targets. Lacks a bit of pocket awareness. Has some character concerns CFA If he’s not been erased from the board for character concerns, he might be a college free agent adquisition for the Broncos with a great potential to make the 53 men roster, depending if the Broncos will decide to get a veteran QB to be the third stringer. I think that by takent alone Kelly is quite there with the other best QB of this class, a 2nd to 3rd rounder. For the Broncos he looks to lack a bit of size so that is already a factor to rest from his general projection and he looks to be more of a pocket paser with not elite athletic skills to run around and make plays with his feet. PLus some concerns about his temper and injuries. I think he has the best delivery in the QB class and his release his very quick and clean, giving the ball a very clear spiral and velocity, at times maybe even too much.
Xavier Woods SS 10 Louisiana Tech Sr 5’11” 203 6th Lacks a bit of size for  what today is considered “ideal”. Has good speed and is capable to be side to side defender. He’s able to come in run suppoort help fast and has an aggressive styke of play. No I honestly didn’t see enough on his videos to warrant a draftable grade. His number from the combine suggests that he has some explosion that I could not locate on yhe field, where by the way he wasn0t surrounded by the best talent and could get lost because of that. He has some problem setting the edge againts the run as the 8 men in the box and that is no good thing going into the draft in what is supposed to be a deep and talented position at S. But then it takes just one team to draft you. I hope it will not be the Broncos and I hope Woods will be a successful player in the NFL.
Jake Elliott K 2 Memphis Sr 5’9” 166 6th
Javarius Leamon OT 18 South Carolina State rSr 6’7” 328 CFA Has some athelticism and spme decent footwork to play RT in the NFL. Really big, mountain of a man with certain athleticism and very good power and surprising balance. In the run protection he looks a bit slow getting to the second level of defender but is effective putiing on the block mainly for his size. Lacks the footwork and athleticism to become a LT in theNFL but has the potential to become a RT and could play some G after he’ll spend some time adapting at NFL speed. 6th – 7th The Brobcos brought him to Dove Vally for a visit and interview. He can play. I like what he can bring to the table, did not embarass himself against top competition in college, doing a fine job and showing skills. A very draftable grade for a prospect that may need one year of development before he could compete for a G spot. In three or four year he could become a starting RT in a power scheme in the NFL under a good coaching and if he puts the work in.
Ben Gedeon ILB 9 Michigan Sr 6’2” 243 6th Istinctive linebacker that has very good size but lacks elite athleticism. A bit inconsistent and lacks elite change of pace to maybe become a good side to side LB in the NFL. Looks to be a good enough tackler and is able to explode his run in blitzes or in run defense. More north-south the side to side. 5th – 6th I think that he’s an interesting player but his ceiling could be a bit lower than other prospect with less size and pedigree. He’s getting to the LOS very quickly and is able to make plays in the backfield but I think that his coverage skills are not at the level needed to be a three downs linebacker in the NFL. he could make the roster and start his careen in special teams and looks very tough. If enver wants to get competition to Zaire Anderson for the 4th LB slot, he could be part of it. Denver could start looking at him with the compensatory 5th rounder they actually hold.
Matt Milano OLB 19 Boston College Sr 6’0” 223 6th Lacks ideal size for a NFL LB. Will need to bulk up. Looks to be adynamic player that has very good range and some kind of hidden athleticism.  Need to learn a better technique to execute open field tackles at the LOS but the fact that he’s there first to make the tackle also help the defense. Lacks elite speed and could have problem covering underneed quick slot receivers. Lacks eplosion ata the snap and ahort area quickness. No I like the athleticism and he’s a dynamic player but I don’t think he could add anything to the players already on the roster.
D.J. Jones DT 24 Ole Miss Sr 6’1” 319 6th Very big NT that has very good athletic skills for his size. Able to move laterally and to chase ball carriere laterally and deep between the LOS. Will need to get a better funcitonal strenght but showcase very good power and can shed one on one blocks. Lacks lower biody power, will need to anchor better in the NFL. 6th Interesting NT that will be on Broncos board depending on which size they might consider at Oline. Might be a bit short at height at what they consider but is an interrsting prospect with very good athletic skills for his size.
Brandon Wilson CB 35 Houston rSr 5’10” 201 6th Has some quickness and a very good read and react. Lacks elite speed and some athleticism. Played mainly in nickel and dime position. Shows good athleticism and explosion in run support and in blitzes. 6th – 7th I like his thick body and his explosion, he might be a good addition to the CB group and could be used immediately in some packages where he could blitz or cover some part of the short to intermediate field, mainly in zone coverage.
Jordan Evans ILB 15 Oklahoma Sr 6’2” 235 6th Relentless. Has a good size at 6’2”, will need to bulk up. Lacks quickness and elite explosion. Has good awareness but not great instincts. No More of a two down run stuffer that will cover if in zone defense but lacks speed and change of direction to be effective ina more man to man scheme. Is not enough around the ball as he could be, but may be related to the scheme he played in. If Denver is going to keep playing man coverage, I don’t see him being a good fit.
Damien Mama OG 9 Southern California Jr 6’3” 325 6th – 7th Had some concentration issue. Big player that use his size in his favour to add to his power and move the opponent. Lacks athletic skills and look uncomfortable when reaching the second level of defenders to olace the block. Relies in his size and to his anchoring in the passing game, but will have trouble against speed ad quick inside rushers n the NFL. No He lacks the nasty streacka nd the sense of urgency that the new Broncos coaching staff looks to like in Olinemen. Has size bat lacks funtional strength and maybe also a bit of athletic skills for what the Broncos are looking for,
Darreus Rogers WR 24 Southern California rSr 6’1” 215 6th – 7th Spicy WR that has average heigth and very good body. Looks powerful and flashy and is able to run several different rout concept. As some quickness and change of direction. May lack elites speed. Looks to be a confident catcher and is able free in zoe coverage. Could face more problem in getting free against man coverage. 6th – 7th Has some awareness issue but all in all looks to be a good third receiver that is very capable to find soft spot inside the opponent defense and get a reliable option in critical downs . On the other hand might have problem beating man to man coverage. Is not overly physical although looks very thick and stout.
Jon Toth C 5 Kentucky rSr 6’5” 307 6th – 7th Very good size for an interior Olineman. Lacks some power in the run portection but is able to get to the LBs level comfortably ad place a block. Gets quick his stands after the snap and does a good enough job in pass portection. 7th – CFA I like the size but he’ll need to get a bit more weight in the NFL. Will need to adapt to the power of the game and the speed. Might not have the biggest ceiling but could develop on a good and reliable backup at C and OG under good coaching.
Keionta Davis DE 17 Chattanooga rSr 6’3” 274 6th – 7th Very good size for a 4-3 DE, lacks a bit of height for a 3-4 DE. Has some quickness at the snap but lacks explosion. Big pursuer does not give up on a play until the whistle. Has some very good lower body power and is a good ru stuffer. No He looks to me more suited to play DE in a 4-3 scheme defense. He’ll need some time to get use to the speed of the NFL but has the chance to develop into a reliable run stuffer DE.
Dylan Donahue OLB 15 West Georgia Sr 6’3” 248 6th – 7th Better suited to play 3-4 OLB in the NFL. Hass ome good speed and acceleration but lacks abit of explosion to beat the Olineman at the snap. Lacks some strenght and will have to bulk up. CFA I think some team will pick him between the 5th round and the end of the draft because he’s raw but has a lot to like. Eventually I think the Broncos might pursue him if he goes undrafted. H loosk to have short legs and a powerful but thinner than needed body. He may become a reliable pass rusher in the NFL for an aggressive team as the Broncos but he’ll face a steep learning curve. Might need a year in practice squad and become more powerful.
Jalen Reeves-Maybin OLB 16 Tennessee Sr 6’0” 230 6th – 7th Lacks a bit of explosion at the snap but looks to be athletic and powerful on the field. Lacks elite small area quickness and could get better at quick change of direction. Good tackler. Has patience and good instinct against the run, shutting the gap with time and power. Lacks the range to be a side to side defender. No Lacks a bit of speed and explosion for what the Broncos look for. Has the athleticis and relied a lot on it in college but also does not show the kind of aggressive play that the new defense is said to be build upon.
Amba Etta-Tawo WR 28 Syracuse rSr 6’1” 198 6th – 7th Has average size for NFL standard, is quick and runs good routes. Not able to block on the LOS or in open field. Used mostly on the outside routes. Has and incredible prolific 2016 season. CFA He’s worth a look in training camp because of his quickness and route running. He will have to get stronger and to assist more the running game and the open field blocking for a teammate.
Travin Dural WR 30 LSU rSr 6’1” 206 6th – 7th Has very good speed and very average size. Looks slimmer than his listed size. Not very productive apart the 2015 campaign. Struggle to get separation and break free from coverage but also didn’t play in the best passing offense in 2016. Has better results in intermediate and deep routs where he uses his speed mainly to get separation but is also able to run good enough deep routes where he’s able to break free. Plays aggressive not only when he’s a possible read but also in option reads where the first option is the run. Could block some but cannot hold on much. CFA He hasn’t had many targets in the past two years but that could also be due to the fact that LSU offense was mainly a running offense and that the QB play was not a great one by any means. My have some good potential and I like him playing aggressive on any snap, especially in the one where he was not going to be directly involved.
Joe Mathis DE 19 Washington Sr 6’2” 255 6th – 7th Injured, broke his foot in november. Has very good size for a 3-4 OLB, average for a 4-3 DE. Has some interesting lateral quickness at the LOS. Has some explosion at the snap but lacks elite speed and athleticism to beat the Olineman quickly and get through the backfield. Lacks a bit of of bullrush but looks to be powerful battling one to one with Olinemen at the LOS and being able to disangage blocks to shift to the upcoming RB to make the tackle. 7th – CFA He was very efficiente againts the run in college and could also be tested as ILB in the 3-4 defense in first two downs. He is very stout and aggressive but lack quickness and speed to put more pressure at NFL QBs. Still it would be interesting how he’d play in training camp because of his aggressive style and the fact that he’s a solid tackler with some interesting lateral quickness and shiftyness.
Tashawn Bower OLB 18 LSU Sr 6’5” 250 6th – 7th Great size, better suted for 4-3 DE than for the 3-4 schemes where he lacks the explosion to play OLB and lacks weigth and strength to play DE, IMO. CFA He would be a project, a two year project, to develop him into a stout 3-4 OLB that has some pass rushing skills but that can set the corner very well against the run and that can re a very good run defender. He visibly got much bigger from 2015 to 2016 and keep the same athletic skills and speed. If he can become more powerful and get a bit more of balance he could be a finding.
Shelton Gibson WR 31 West Virginia rJr 5’11” 195 6th – 7th Patient kick retourner that has some explosion when seeing the hole. Lacks top speed to get through it  all. CFA He lacks elite speed and quickness. Didn’t see hitting great routes. He could be brought to camp and battle for the return position if not return specialist will be drafted by teh Broncos.
Freddie Stevenson FB 2 Florida State Sr 6’0” 236 6th – 7th Has some speed for his size. Fluid while running. Looks to be strong and able to reach his assignment. Not many sign of pass catching abilities. CFA If he slips in the draft and the new coaching staff wants more competition at the FB position he’s a good blocker that can provide occarional runs to surprise defenses and to get short yardage.
David Jones FS 11 Richmond rSr 6’2” 210 6th – 7th Quick in coming at the LOS for run support. Has a very good balance and some explosion. Looks to move well in coverage. Has great size for a S and some very good athletic skills. Has the speed and the size and enough quickness to cover TEs and is able to make good enough open field tackles too. CFA Dynamic player that provide good depth at both S positions and has good size. If he’d go undarfted (and I think it’s unlikely) he may be targeted even thought the Broncos selected  two S in 2016 draft. He’s aggressive and I think thta if the Broncos would be looking for a S, he could get a 5th round grade.
Tanner Vallejo ILB 17 Boise State Sr 6’1” 223 6th – 7th Will need to get bigger in the NFL. Good read and react to the play, very fast read and quick reaction. Very quick to come in run support or at tackling at the LOS. Looks to be a sure tackler in open field at the LOS. Has a good game agains the run mainly closing gaps more than being a thumper. Can cover a bit and is more familial with zome coverage. LAcks quickness, IMO, to a be a good cover LB at mana to man situation. No I don’t think he has the athletic skills that the Broncos are looking for in order to upgrade the actual roster members. Also lacks elite speed and might be not as aggressive as the Broncos are rumored to look for,
Dieugot Joseph OT Florida International rSr 6’6” 293 6th – 7th Huge size, wide frame that would allow him to add some weight. Has some slow foot but looks very powerful. Has some explosion at the snap and some good enough body balance while engaging the block. In the running game is able to pull away his assignment. 7th – CFA He might need a year of development, maybe in practice squad, into a more powerful RT. He has the size and the frame to be very aggressive, powerfull and has the explosion to be able to stay with quick pass rusher on the RT position.
Avery Gennesy OG 12 Texas A&M rSr 6’3” 318 7th Played T in college. Lacks size and athletic skills to play T in the NFL, the footwork is not very solid either. In the runnig game is able to pull away his assignment. Lacks a bit of balance. No qHas average size and lacks a bit of power that I think the Broncos coaches are looking to add to the roster.
Devonte Fields OLB 13 Louisville rSr 6’3” 242 7th Has good size for a 3-4 OLB, has some athletic skills and moves well around the LOS but lacks explosion at the snap and is more dynamic than focused in where is the ball. Has some quickness at the snap and some smooth movement that enable him to get into the backfield but lacks the last gear and aggression to get actually to the ball. No I think the Brobcis would put premium interest in physicality and aggressiveness. He has a lot of athletic skills on the field, very dynamic but lacks elite speed and the last punch to get to the ball.
Levon Myers OT 15 Northern Illinois rSr 6’5” 307 7th Has very good size, looks very stout and has good enough footwork in the passing protection.  In the run game he looks a bit raw but shows strength and power to pull his assignment out of the play. Inconsistent at times lacks elite athletic skills and especially in the run game has some slow feet. 6th – 7th He has size and some good skills to work with. He could be a work in porgress and may need one year on the practice squad but if he’s willing to put in the work an dthe coaches believe in his potential he could really develop into a reliable swing T with the chance to be a LT in the NFL.
Ezra Robinson CB 27 Tennessee State rSr 5’11” 185 7th Has good but not great size. Very good speed on the outside, lacks elite short area quickness but has some. Has nose for the ball and likes to gamble on the big play. No very active on run support but could be due to defensive instructions. CFA Aggressive in the passing game, has some valuable speed and ballhawk skills. He might be brought to training camp to check what he could do on special teams.
Johnathan Ford FS 9 Auburn Sr 5’11” 200 7th Quick as reyurner, looks to have the range to get help covering WR on the side of the field. Has quite good speed and acceleration pursuing the ball carrier. He puts himslef always close to the ball also getting to the ball carrier in the run defense and helping making the tackle. Not afraid of contact. Good read and reactions in short passes and screens. Able to make good enough open field tackles. Aggressive. 6th I think he’s a bit underrated. He could compete as special teams returner and backing up at S while he would need to get use to NFL power and speed. He has an average size with good frame that should allow him to get some extra pound and will need a better functional strength that would alow him to mantain his
Ben Braden OG 15 Michigan rSr 6’6” 335 7th Looks smaller than his listed size. Has power but needs to be quicklier gaining his position. Footwork not really there yet for being successful at NFL level. He’s still quite effective moving his opponent and resulting quite productive for his team. Is able to absorbe quite well the bull rush form the interior defender but has problem with quick pass rushers. CFA I think the Broncos will bring some young Olineman as CFA to compete for at least the practice squad. Braden needs to improve his footwork in order to quicklier gaining his position at the snap. He will have problems with speed rusher and in the AFC West there are many. This said he has very good power and plays quite hard. The Broncos are moving to a less zone blocking oriented blocking scheme so bringing young powerful interior Olinemen to training camp as Braden is not a bad idea.
Ashton Lampkin CB 29 Oklahoma State rSr 6’0” 189 7th Lack elite speed. Has good height but lacks weigth, will need to bulk up. Lacks elite speed and explosion. Is able close fast to the receiver and deliver a hit after the catch. Lacks elite athleticism. CFA Could play more agrgressive. The Broncos will look for help at CB, he could compete in training camp but IMO lacks teh aggressiveness and mean demanour that the Broncos likes in their DBs style of playing.
Josh Tupou DT 23 Colorado rSr 6’3” 362 7th Has size and uses it to push in the backfield olimemen opposite to him. His weight control could scare some teams off. Lacks elite atheltic skills but shows soe interesting movement at his size. Has some power and anchor well against the run. Will have to get a much better functional strength in the NFl in order to be able to keep his balance and anchor against NFL caliber Olinemen. 7th – CFA His weight scares me a bit. He could easily baloon up. Also it’s not very clear if he has real game ower or if he uses mostly his size to create pressures and to intimidate Olinemen. Still giving the semi-need of the Broncos at NT he could be a late rounds addition that could payoff as well as could turn out to be an acceptable miss because of the late pick.
Kenny Allen P 2 Michigan rSr 6’3” 222 7th Very accurate leg, maybe not the most powerful but he’s able to manouvre the ball very well and place it like a surgeon. CFA Denver drafted a P last year and I doubt the Broncos would use another pick on the same position. If he gets undrafted he might be brought to training camp to mantain competition.
C.J. Beathard QB 11 Iowa rSr 6’3” 219 7th Lacks ideal size, will need to bulk up. Looks poised and most of time in command of the situation. Has quite god bay language. Looks to have a very good delivery, the ball comes out of his right hand with spedd and looks to be quite catchable. 7th – CFA Looks to have tools to become a NFL QB, at least a competent backup: has good spiral, good arm, quite good accurancy and self confidence to make good throws. Played in a limited offense that might have overshadowed some skills of hims.
Sam Tevi OT 19 Utah Sr 6’5” 312 7th Has to get better with his footwork and raise the his awarness level. Has great size for an interior Olineman. Lacks elite athelticism and explosion, rely more on his power and strength i order to move opponent in the run game. Does not look very fluid while running and has to anchor and bend better in pass protection. Will have problem with quick interior pass rushers and blitzers in the NFL. CFA He’s a project, has great size and strength but his less than elite athleticism hurts his game. Will have to get coached well and gain a very good technique to make up to his lack odf explosion. One or two year project. APRIL UPDATE: The Broncos brought him in for a visit.
Steven Taylor OLB 21 Houston rSr 6’0” 228 7th Stout and aggressive. Lacks elite speed and a bit of  athleticism but looks to have great football IQ and some instinct. Lacks desirable size for NFL LBs. Able to make very good open field tacles. No Does not look to be  the sideline to sideline type of LB and at 6’0” he’s not bigger than broncos current player at ILB. I like his ability to blitz and his tackling but I think the Broncos are looking for more athletic than powerful LB. I think he could and should go to a team that want his LB to be fundamentally solid already.
Sojourn Shelton CB 31 Wisconsin Sr 5’9” 170 7th Small type of CB . Hs speed and quickness. As good instinct for making open field tackles. Has the speed and changing directions skills to play man to man. CFA Is size will quite limitate the impact he could have as a rookie. Will have to get more weight and becoming stronger not losing his quickness and agility. Looks to be a football player but may need one year in practice squad to get physiscally ready to the NFL.
Blake Jarwin TE 15 Oklahoma State rSr 6’5” 244 7th Very good size, will have to get more powerful in the lower body. Able to place very good block at the LOS. Ferocious blocker in the run game as HB. Played special teams in college. More an HB than a pure TE. CFA Mainly a blocking TE but a quite good one with great size, strength and willing to block. I would really like to see the Broncos bringing him to training camp so that they can see what he could bring in as a pass catcher. He des not look the really fluid running routes, but has a big frame that would allow him to gain even some more pound and bt a big target in critical downs. I don’t think he can add so much weight and power to be translated into a T in the NFL, has the potential skillset but lacks the size.
Brandon Bell OLB 22 Penn State Sr 6’1” 233 7th Lacks elite athleticism and quickness, especially in changing direction. No Did not see enough presence around the ball in the videos of Penn State I saw.
Nate Iese FB 3 UCLA rSr 6’2” 250 7th Played TE in college, lacks size for NFL standards. Will convert himself in H-back. Has size and used to be a blocker in college. Could also catch the ball out of the backfield. Lacks elite quickness out of the snap at the LOS and power to directly man handlying LBs while blocking. No I don’t think the Broncos migh be interested in H-back having already some young prospect on the team to cover this role and compete through training camp.
Sefo Liufau QB 12 Colorado Sr 6’3” 240 7th Has good size, not great at 6’3”, and some very good scrambling skills. Accurancy, decision making and read defenses are not where they are supposed to be for a NFL QB. He’s a leader of the Colorado team that won the Pac-12 south and lost in the Pac-12 Championship after 10 years of miseries.Looks to be a natural leader that didn’t have to use huddles and used more his legs and size to be succesful than his defenses read and arm. No I don’t think he fits into what the Broncos are looking for, Still if he’d go undrafted it might be hard to resiste to get him on the Broncos roster to compete as the 3rd QB and maybe spent some time in the practice squad.
Jonathan McLaughlin OT 20 Virginia Tech Sr 6’4” 302 7th Played RT in 2016. Has wide shoulders that would allow him to add some weight on. Look quite powerful with his upper body, a bit slow with his footwork, lacks  elite athletic skills and some explosion at the snap. Looks a bit slow getting in open filed but quite powerful and with good balance pulling and or blocking in open field. Might be better suited to become a G in the NFL. No I think the Broncos are looking either for Olinemen that are either big and powerful or have good size but have very good athletic skills. Both of these profiles has to show aggressiveness in their game. McLaughlin comes short in each of the two porfile (not huge and not really athletic) and also is not the most aggressive Olineman.
Kareem Are OG 16 Florida State rSr 6’5” 334 7th Great size for an interior Olineman. Has quite slow feet and movement, could be really esposed by quick linebackers rushes and quick powerfull inyerior pass reusher in the pass protection. Does a better job in the running game, although his size is not on his favour, not allowing him to be as quick as at time it will be necessary to get to the second level of defenders. No Big and heavy footed. I see too many inside pass rushers pass through him that given the status of Denver Oline I would think of him only as CFA. Still teher could be smaller schol raw talents to be brought in to training camp to develop.
Montae Nicholson SS 13 Michigan State Jr 6’1” 219 7th Did not played a lot with starters. Put on a show on his Pro Day. Has a lot od speed and athletic skills. Still have to be proved on the fiels, but with his size he could be a better Pro prospect than a college one. CFA To be brought to trsining camp to see what he has to offer.
Jeremy Clark CB 36 Michigan rSr 6’3” 206 7th Plays physical football, is quick in read and react. Have great size and run smoothly in coverage. Lacks a bit of quick change of directions. Looks to have good atheltic skills. 7th I think the Broncos woud like to add a CB with his lenght and he has some coverage skills on man to man that could make him a good addition to the roster give that he could be used against Tes and WRs. Will need to get used to NFL speed and power. Might need a year of practice squad.
Alek Torgersen QB 16 Pennsylvania Sr 6’2” 215 7th Has average size, not really good footsteps and pocjet presence. Has some average arm strenght.Has quite clean delivery and puts good spirals on his throws. No Not a scrambler QB with a lot to learn about ocket presence. Not what the Broncos look for.
Eric Wilson ILB 13 Cincinnati rSr 6’1” 220 7th Will need to become bigger. Has some good instincts and is vey dynamic. Is able to come fast in run defense and cover tha gap for the running lane. Also is able to shed the block with quick movements. Veruy active and very solid in run defense. Can cover a bit but lose contact with the play when not looking at the ball. 6th Interesting run defender that will need to get bigger and more powerful. Has good instinct and is always around the ball carrier. Looks a bit more weak against the pass. The Broncos might decide to select him towards the end of the draft in order to bring fair ncompetition at the LB department.
Prescott Line FB 8 Michigan State rSr 5’11” 253 7th Dynamic FB that can run with power and some explosion at the snap. Able to block n the bakfield and on the LOS. Not really a proof that he could be a pass catcher, which indicates to me that he may not be. No The Broncos drfat Janovich in 12016 draft and still have Juwann Thompson on the roster to compete for the FB spot. More than enough at the position.
Hardy Nickerson ILB 14 Illinois rSr 6’0” 236 7th Lacks ideal height but has speed and plays aggressive. Looks to have very good range and could be a side to side LB. As very good north – south speed. Needs to get more powerful and to learn to take better tackling angles. 6th – 7th He has teh speed and the athleticism to be a good two downs ILB in the Broncos scheme. Has the range and the speed to be developed also into a reliable cover LB. A bit of a project but could contribute from teh minute one in special teams.
DeAngelo Brown DT 17 Louisville rSr 6’0” 312 7th – CFA Lacks ideal height but has great athetic skills for a guy of his size. Able to change direction quickly, has very good short area quickness. Lacks som epower that will have to add in order to be anchoring well in the NFKL against the run. Dynamic Dlineman that could add some depth at the 3-4 schema s NT and DE, meanwhile is more of a undsersized penetrator DT in the 4-3 defense. No I like his game but I think the Broncos need and wants to become bigger and more powerful upfront.
Billy Brown TE 11 Shepherd rSr 6’3” 254 7th – CFA
Josh Harvey-Clemons SS 8 Louisville rSr 6’4” 228 7th – CFA
Javancy Jones OLB 17 Jackson State Sr 6’1” 245 7th – CFA
Taquan Mizzell RB 21 Virginia Sr 5’10” 194 7th – CFA Has good size and has room to add some weight. Very shifty and has some very good balance. Looks to hit hard the hole. Can catch the ball out of the backfield, being a reliable option on 3rd downs. Very dynamic player that played returner in special teams too. Looks to lack a bit of burnst and the second gear to hit in open field for the home run. Does not porvide good blocking. 7th – CFA He lacks size and a bit of power for NFL standars so he would need time to develop his body. Also he will have to work on his blocking skills in order to be used as third down back. As a returner specialist lacka abit of explosion and vision. Still a very dynamic player that can run and find a hole and can catch the ball, really worthy a spot in training camp and to compete for the 3rd or 4th RB spot on the roster.
Treyvon Hester DT 22 Toledo rSr 6’3” 300 7th – CFA
Calvin Munson OLB 20 San Diego State Sr 6’1” 245 7th – CFA Has good size but lacks elite athleticism, speed and quickness. Hard nosed LB that had a very productive 2016 season. Aggressive at the LOS. Will need to get a better tackling technique in open field. No The Brobcos are looking for athletic and speedy side to side LB.
Des Lawrence CB 28 North Carolina Sr 6’0” 188 7th – CFA Lacks a bit of size, will have to bulk up. Plays aggressive. In run support he lacks size to be very effective. More of a cover corner,played lots of man to man situations but lacks elite sped and explosion to be that kind of player in the NFL. Not very rangy, lacks elite short area quickness to chenge direciotn and exlode toward the other side of he field. No He lacks the physical game that the Broncos look for and is a hybrid between a outside corner where he may lack a bit of speed (but have excellent closing speed) and quickness and physicality to be a nickel and cover slot WR and TE.
Dallas Lloyd SS 11 Stanford rSr 6’2” 213 7th – CFA
Treston DeCoud CB 30 Oregon State Sr 6’2” 203 7th – CFA
Harvey Langi ILB 10 Brigham Young rSr 6’2” 252 7th – CFA Energetic and aggressive. Has very goos size. Has some very good lateral movement and is able to positionate himself to fill gaps in the running game. Has some cover skills. Versatile, can play OLB and ILB in the 3-4 defense. Quite powerful facing bigger and more powerful OTs, lacks the elite speed and explosion to be a consistent outside pass rusher in the NFL. 5th – 6th Interviewed with the Broncos. Versatile LB that chas very good size and can play both OLB and ILB in the 3-4 scheme. Quite underrated, did not wowed at the combine but has very solid videos making plays all around the field. He’s able to play for the team shedding blocks or using his strength and power to move blockers into GAPs. Could be used in blitzes too. Has good speed. Will have to do a better job in coverage. Did not have a great day too at his Pro day, might slip out of the draft but by videos I would give him a good 5th round grade.
Garrett Sickels DE 21 Penn State rJr 6’4” 261 7th – CFA Has good enough size and has some very good lateral quickness atht helps him at the LOS. Has some interesting speed coming from the edge and is relentless in pursuing. Has ome burnst in pass rushing. Will need to get stronger to have a consistent role in run blocking too. More suited for 4-3 DE scheme. 7th – CFA He has less size than former teammate Schwan but some more burnst at the snap and suddeness and speed in rushing the passes. A bit less successful in stopping the run. I think that he is a better asset in the 4-3 defense scheme. APRIL UPDATE: the Broncos worked him out at his Pro day. I change my grade NO (Out of Board) to 7th – CFA.
Jamari Staples WR 33 Louisville rSr 6’3” 190 7th – CFA Great size and has wide shoulders, could be able to add some weight. Athletic, has some short area quickness and some power to break tackles ad get some extra yardage. Can block on open field. CFA The Broncos interviewed him at the East-West Shrine Game. His size and athletic skills are very interesting to a team that could look for help at the third and 4th spots at WR. His short area quickness is very interesting for a guy of his size.
Jahad Thomas RB 23 Temple Sr 5’10” 188 7th – CFA Lacks top speed and power. Lacks ideal size to be a inside the tackles runner in the NFL. Has some quickness but is not very elusive. Has some vision and is able to accelerate but his lack of size would not allow him to break many tackles in the NFL. Looks to be comfortable receiving the ball out of the backfield and is able to accelerate and get some good yard after the catch. Looks to be a willing blocker but he’s limited by his size. Dynamic with the ball in his hands. CFA His lack of size is the big concern here. Other tahn that he lacks a bit of speed also. He has quickness and can catch the ball and block some. The key for him to play in the NFL will be being able to add some weight and mantain his skills. He might need to develop his body and game a year of practice squad. This is the reason why I have a CFA on him.
Dymonte Thomas SS 12 Michigan Sr 5’11” 195 7th – CFA Gunner in special teams at Michigan. Lacks ideal weight for NFL standards. Has a fine footwork and back pedaling technique when asked to drop in coverage, and is quite fast to coming up in run support. Played a lot of zone concept in defense. CFA Expereinced special teams player and defender. Will need to bulk up a bit but could compete in training camp for at least a spot in practice squad.
Fish Smithson FS 10 Kansas rSr 5’10” 197 7th – CFA
Lewis Neal DE 22 LSU Sr 6’0” 274 7th – CFA A bit short and undersized for the NFL standard.Has a strong lower body and anchor well against the power runnign between the tackles, he’s able to disengage the block and jump laterally to make the first contact or stop with the RB. In the pass rush he’s lacking explosion and quick first steps to be a penetrator althogh at time is able to push back the G. CFA He’s an interior Dlineman that lacks size for the NFL standards. Lacks eight and weight to be part of a NFL roster.
Anthony Firkser FB 4 Harvard Sr 6’2” 220 7th – CFA
Damoreea Stringfellow WR 34 Ole Miss rJr 6’2” 218 7th – CFA Has average NFL size, good speed and wide body. Has drops issue at times. Runs good outside routes and as some good quickness. No Lacks some size and power, has to get better in the blcoking game and is not really physical, run good enough routes and has good speed but has concentration issues and some drops iddue too.
Xavier Coleman CB 32 Portland State Sr 5’11” 190 7th – CFA
Patrick Gamble DT 25 Georgia Tech rSr 6’4” 277 7th – CFA
Noble Nwachukwu DE 23 West Virginia rSr 6’2” 275 7th – CFA Lacks ideal size for the NFL. Will have to bulk up to become an interior Dlinemen. Plays with really good leverage and is stout at the point of attack. No His lack of size is the biggest concern.
Cole Croston OT 21 Iowa rSr 6’5” 307 7th – CFA Battled injuries in 2016, missing four games. Played special teams a part of LT and RT. Have quite good size and looks to have the frame for adding more pound. CFA Injuries and possible change of position are a bit against his draft stock.
Corey Levin OG 17 Chattanooga Sr 6’3” 305 7th – CFA
Woody Baron DT 26 Virginia Tech rSr 6’1” 280 7th – CFA Has some quickness at the snap, undersized as interior Dlineman in the NFL. Looks to lack power to be able to anchor correctly against the run, where is pushed a bit around. Aggressive shows much more lower boidy strenght and power in attacking the blocker at the LOS and getting into the backfield to make plays. No I think he’s a good developmental prospect as 4-3 3-Technique. He lacks size to become a reliable 3-4 DE although he has quickness and instinct to go after the ball. Run defense his a bit his weakness. I can see the Broncos noting down his pass rushing skills and be aware in case he might develop his body and be available down the stretch.
Darius English DE 24 South Carolina rSr 6’5” 237 7th – CFA
Jehu Chesson WR 35 Michigan rSr 6’3” 204 7th – CFA Able to play as a tailback, has good field vision in doing that but lacks quickness and elite explosion.  Lacks eltes speed to but looks to be a fearless receiver in traffic in the middle of the field. Looks to have quite good size, looks bigger that his listed size. Will have to bulk up for the NFL. 7th – CFA He can play multiple routs and be quite effective. Has very good size and id fearless in traffic. Will need to step up in the blocking department and to do that will need to get bigger and stronger. The lack of physicality paired with his size and the blocking skills limit his stock.
Darrell Daniels TE 16 Washington Sr 6’3” 254 7th – CFA Lacks ideal size for a NFL TE. Has good blockimg skills and looks to run very smoothly. Has some vertical speed but lack a bit of explosion at the snap. Able to break open running his route.Lacks elite athletic skills. Has some pass catching skills. Against the run is quite able to set the corner and defend it well. No I think he’s a similer player to Krieger-Coble. He’s also a bit small as krieger-Coble was as a rookie and that was his limit for the NFL.
Kyle Kalis OG 18 Michigan rSr 6’4” 308 7th – CFA Good size and looks to have good power. Does not have very quick feet but looks ok in that department. A bit underrated just at the beginning of the combine. He’s quick reaching the second line of defenders. 6th I don’t think the Broncos needs to find developmental Olineman to be used as backups at the inside of the Oline, the 2016 starters need development and, as is it now, before the FA period starts, I think the Broncos should bring in some veteran leadership and help. Still Kalis is a player that might not have the highest ceiling but could be developed in a dependable starter or a very solid backup.
Victor Salako OT 22 Oklahoma State rSr 6’5” 327 7th – CFA He has good size, will have to get more powerful in his lower body. Is quick at the snap and plays with leverage in the run protection. Not really smooth with his footwork. Lacks elite athleticism and power. Has the frame to add bulk and become more powerful, especially in the lower body area. CFA If the coaches sees some potential by giving him a better functional strength, he has some tools that need to be sharpened. Still I think that if developed he will remain in the lft side of the line because I don’t think he’ll become a mauler.
Jay Guillermo C 7 Clemson rSr 6’3” 301 7th – CFA Has good not great size. Looks a bit slow at the snap at times and does not have elite athleticism. Lacks a bit of aggression too. Has some quickness and when able to set his position with balance his able to take very good blocking angles on Dlinemen. Shows power too in the running game especially in short yardage situation. CFA I think he wil have to work a lot on his game and adapting physically and psicologically at the power and speed of the NFL. He’s a bit inconsistent in his game and if the Oline coach could find the key of that Guillermos could be an intriguing prospect because of these blocking angles he’s able to taje that really seal out the DLineman fro the play.
Riley Bullough ILB 11 Michigan State rSr 6’2” 228 7th – CFA
Seth Russell QB 13 Baylor rSr 6’3” 203 7th – CFA
Jack Tocho CB 34 NC State Sr 6’0” 200 7th – CFA Has good quickness in read and react. Lacks elite athletic skills and needs to get better tackling technique to get to the receiver as soon as he catch the ball not to allow yards after catches. Plays physical and is aggressive. Has good size for a NFL CB. No He plays physical and is aggressive. Lacks the athletic skills that the Broncoc usually looks on developmental DB.
Isaac Rochell DE 25 Notre Dame Sr 6’4” 280 7th – CFA Has very good size afor a 3-4DE. Has some push in the bullrush but lacks explosion. Anchor well enough against the run and ais able to have some lateral move to go an block the running lane.  Powerful when anble to set his body right with quickness at the snap: can push the Olineman back into the  QB. CFA Interesting player with great pursuit. Lacks elite quickness and explosion at athe snap bit has some very good bullrush and balance that allows him to create pressure on the QB. Anchor well in the run defense.
Tarik Cohen RB 26 North Carolina A&T Sr 5’6” 178 7th – CFA
Ahmad Thomas FS 12 Oklahoma Sr 6’0” 215 7th – CFA Very good size, playes aggressive, able to make some tough tackle. Not afraid of contact. Quick to get to the ball carrier, good range, has some issue with tackling angles in open field. Lacks elite atheticism and explosion. CFA A good prospect to bring the training camp to compete for S depth and special teams. Worst case scenario he could end up in practice squad. He also has experience in playing special teams in college.
Jimmie Gilbert OLB 25 Colorado Sr 6’4” 231 7th – CFA Does not have the portotypical body and skillset for the NFL. Productive player that had a fantastic senior year to boost hs stats. Has some real quickness and speed at 6’4” and has some athletic skills too. Lacks power and funcitonal strength for NFL standards. He’s a development (physical and technique wise) 3-4 OLB in the NFL. 7th Pass rushers are really important in today NFL. I’m sure Denver is looking to add one or two to compete for the 4th and the 5th slot on the roster or practice squad. He’ll need a bit of time since he’ll have to add weight and get his body ready to play against powerful NFL Olinemen that would push him around if he’d not get more powerful. Has speed and pass rusher instinct. I would use a late round pick to be sure to have him in training camp.
Jerry Ugokwe OT 23 William & Mary rSr 6’7” 318 7th – CFA
Jake Eldrenkamp OG 19 Washington rSr 6’4” 301 7th – CFA Athletic interior Olineman that is able to move around the LOS and to reach second level of defenders with ease. Lacks elite power and will need to become more powerful. Is able to do a good job i n pass protection but could face problems in pulling in the run game in the NFL. CFA An interesting developmental project that would require some time. He has enough athleticism to be very energic interior Olineman in the NFL proven that he can add weight and power and keep his skills. At least worth a look in training camp.
Joe Williams RB 27 Utah Sr 5’11” 202 7th – CFA Does some blocking. Has quickness and speed, has some elusiveness and able to make defender miss in open space. Instinctive runner but lacks elite vision. Has an extra gear when in open field, very athletic and with very good balance. Not the best pass catcher. Has great burnst when he sees the hole and hits it hard. 6th Although he really needs to get a better pass catcher, he has the kind of burnst the Broncos lack and that could add a weapon to the Broncos offense. He will need to get stronger to be able to absorbe NFL defenders hits and cannot be counted on for more than 20 runs a game, but could be used in tandem with a more power oriented RB. The lack of vision would most probably not make him a highly drafted RB, but his skills will have suitors especially in teams as the Broncos that weren’t stellar in their running game in teh recent past.
Ifeadi Odenigbo DE 26 Northwestern rSr 6’3” 250 7th – CFA Has good size, not great. Powerful more that quick and flashy, owns a very good bullrush and lacks a bit of speed to cut the corner on the LT. Has some quickness and good enough athletic skills to move around the LOS in the pass rush. No I think he is more suited to be a 4-3 defense DE tahn convert into a 3-4 OLB. Lacks a bit of athletic skills and speed to be able to play standing up and may be required to drop down in coverage. Too much of a project and he’s a good pass rusher with the hands in the dirt.
Emmanuel Holder FB 5 Towson rSr 5’11” 266 7th – CFA
Chase Roullier C 8 Wyoming rSr 6’4” 312 7th – CFA Quick at the snap, reaches well his assignment and is bale to use the hands well to block him. He’s more pushing than pulling his assignment and at time does not look comfortable mocing to the LB level meanwhile lokks very good movng at the LOS. Lacks a bit of balance and footwork will need to improve. 6th – 7th Has great size and some power to work with. I like his movement at the LOS and could provide some versatility as inside Olineman. Will need to get stronger and gain more power together with a better balance. He may need one year of practice squad to get ready for the NFL but could heve some unexpected potential.
Ben Boulware ILB 12 Clemson Sr 6’0” 236 7th – CFA Leader of the Clemson defense, undersized for the NFL, has great motor but will have to get much better in coverage. Plays aggressive and is quick in blitzing. Lacks ideal speed to pursue the ball carrier in open field. Lacks elite athleticism. He’s a fierce competitor. No The Broncos are looking for quickness and athleticism for their LB tp develop. Boulware could become a very good special team player and a two downs linebacker. Lacks the quickness and the explosion to be a three down linebacker, IMO. Still a ton of respect for him as an overachiever, I won’t bet against him, but the odds are not in his favour in the NFL.
Cooper Rush QB 15 Central Michigan rSr 6’3” 229 7th – CFA
Aaron Jones RB 28 Texas-El Paso rJr 5’10” 205 7th – CFA
Cethan Carter TE 18 Nebraska Sr 6’3” 234 7th – CFA
Delano Hill FS 13 Michigan Sr 6’1” 207 7th – CFA Interesting stout S with very good size. Plays agreesive at the LOS. He has some good range tough not elite, has very good body type and plays aggressive. Lacks elite speed. 6th – 7th I think he’s a bit underrated and could actually develop in a very good starter in the NFL because he has the size and power to tackle, the technique to locate and hit the ball carrier either in run support and in the passing game. Lacks elite speed and in a very talentet class of DB he’ll be push a bit down. Denver could and did a lot worse than him in several draft with 6th and 7th rounders. If they will be able to interview him that could be important. Anyhow the Broncos selected two safety the past draft so they will draft him only if they really like him, and even liking him they might try to see if they can sign him as CFA. I thinks he will bring serious competition to Parks and Simmons.
Psalm Wooching OLB 26 Washington rSr 6’3” 231 7th – CFA Decided to pursue rugby career No Decided to pursue rugby career
Keion Adams DE 27 Western Michigan Sr 6’2” 247 7th – CFA Very productive player that because of his size looks to be more suited to be a 3-4 OLB in the NFL than a 4-3 DE. Dynamic, has good quickness at the snap but lacks real explosion and elite speed to turn the corner at the OT. Keeps is awareness on and is able to change direction with quickness and get to the QB. Aggressive player. CFA Lacks a bit of athleticism to be very high on Broncos board. But his production and his ability to put himself in position to make playes both agaist the pass and the run could keep him under Denve radar. Bringing him to training camp would allow Broncos coaches to verify what he could really bring to the team.
Alex Kozan OG 20 Auburn rSr 6’3” 309 7th – CFA Has average size, will need to get a bit bigger. Does a good job in pass protection but could get better footwork. In the running game is able to get to the second level and neutralize LBs. Lacks elite athleticism and quickness and explosion. CFA He’s a bit smaller than what the Broncos use to like in drafted Olinemen, this is the reason why I think he could be reached if undrafted. He has some tools to work with. I like his mental set and his aggressiveness in any play. I think it is what the Broncos look for. So because undersized, undrafted but I could see the Broncos been interested and maybe even drafting him from the 6th round on.
Matthew Godin DT 29 Michigan rSr 6’5” 288 7th – CFA Great size, will still have to bulk up in the NFL. Lacks explosion and some quickness at the snap. Has some good power and is able to push back his opponent when not double teamed. 7th I like the size and the power he brings to the table. Maybe the less shining of Michingan Dlinemen entering in this draft, he could become a very reliable rotational man against the run. May need time to adapt to the speed and power and to get a little bigger but looks to have the frame to do that.
Ricky Seals-Jones TE 39 Texas A&M rJr 6’5” 240 7th – CFA
Justin Vogel P 3 Miami (Fla.) Sr 6’4” 216 7th – CFA Good puunter with strong leg quite good accurancy and solid execution. Looks very confident and obliges the opponent returner to take a lots of fair catcher because of extending the time of the ball in the air. CFA Bringing competition to Denver former draft pick in training camp is never a bad idea. Vogel looks to have the leg and the mentality to become another good NFL punter.
William Likely CB 38 Maryland Sr 5’7” 175 7th – CFA
Avery Moss DE 28 Youngstown State rSr 6’3” 262 7th – CFA Has some quickness at the snap and has some physicality. Not as flashy as teammate Rivers but stouter against the run. Has some penetration skills and is able to create havoc in the backfield. Will need to get more powerful but has quite good balance. CFA I was watching Rivers videos and I noticed Moss more than Rivers. He lacks the size and the athletic skills Rivers has, but is more polished prospect and might have an easier transition to the NFL. He does better than Rivers agaunst the run, he’s a bit less powerful but is more connected with the ball than Rivers that looks off at times. Moss could surprise.
Winston Craig DT 30 Richmond rSr 6’3” 290 7th – CFA
Joshua Holsey CB 39 Auburn rSr 5’11” 195 7th – CFA Has average size but great speed and very good athleticism. Can cover man to man but will have trouble with big NFL WR. Lacks elite change of diretion and explosion. CFA He has very good straigth line speed but could struggle covering complex routes. He will have to compete for a special team spot as a gunner and from there develop his game at CB getting better functional stregth.
Greg Pyke OG 21 Georgia rSr 6’5” 313 7th – CFA Very good size.  In pass protection can move quickly his feet but looks a bit unconfortable on that and loose a bit his balance: will have trouble facing quick pass rusher and speed rushes at the T position in the NFL. In pass protection againts interior Dlinemen he looks much more confortable showing good enough anchoring and bending. Looks to lack the power that could be expected from a man of his size in the running game, not a mauler and does not look confortable pulling and getting ton the second level of defenders. No I think he lacks a bit of athleticism and does not look to play nasty and aggressive at the snap. I think the Broncos wants to see this traits in the personnel they are willing to develop.
Leon McQuay III SS 16 Southern California Sr 6’1” 192 7th – CFA Has good size and ok speed. Plays with an aggressive mind and looks to ahve good range to play sideline to sideline. Lacks elite speed and explosion. Needs to get better technique in open field tackles. Has some coverage skills but could have trouble with big, physical and fast WR in the NFL in deep routes. 6th – 7th I think he’s underrated. He plays with urgenct and is quite aggressive. Lacks elite explosion and speed but has very good size wiht the chance to get a bit bigger and could be developed in a very good SS or Nickel CB in one year time or two.
Lucas Crowley C 10 North Carolina Sr 6’2” 297 7th – CFA Lacks ideal size and elite power and strength. Quite fast moving to the second level of defenders but lack power at the contact. Also has to be quicklier at putting his hands on the defender after the snap. No The Broncos are moving towards a more power oriented blocking scheme and Crowley most glaring need, IMO, is the lack of  elite size and power.
Scott Orndoff TE 20 Pittsburgh Sr 6’5” 254 7th – CFA Has great size, looks to have the frame to add some more pound. Lacks elite speed and athleticism but looks very smooth and conformtable running with the ball in his hands. Asked to be a sound blocker in college, does a fair job blocking. Has some drops in the pass catching category. Targeted several times in critical downs as a receiver, lacks elite speed and explosion but id able to use his size in his favour. a bit flying under the radar at this point. 6th – 7th I think that he won’t be the field stretcher WR but a contributor that given the time to get used to NFL speed and power could become a three down player because of his flexibility and blocking and receiveing the ball. Something that is very important in today NFL and that has been a bit underrated in this TE class.
Chuck Clark FS 15 Virginia Tech Sr 6’0” 204 7th – CFA Quick to come at the LOS in run support, at times overrun the play and has to take better angles at tackling especially in open field. Has average size but looks stout and aggressive. Has some range. No I think the Broncos might go after some S as CFA but might go with prospect that they feel could have much bigger upside.
Ralph Green III DT 31 Indiana rSr 6’5” 305 7th – CFA Suspended for hitting a woman. Has great size for interior Dlineman. Strong and powerful big man that can bet the Olineman and create havoc in the backfield. Lacks elite explosion and quickness at the snap but very powerful could outlast a non perfect block and get to the backfield. Hustle the play as a linebacker when he’s free from blocks. High motor and plays aggressive. 5th – 6th In my opinion, depending on interview or report over character concerns, if the Broncos have him in their board, it should be between the best NT prospects at the beginning of day 3. He has the size the Broncos loves for their Dlinemen, the will to hustle the play and the aggressive style of play that is trademark of Denver defense.
Damarius Travis SS 17 Minnesota rSr 6’0” 211 7th – CFA
Andreas Knappe OT 26 Connecticut rSr 6’8” 323 7th – CFA Huge size, mountain of a man. Can move some for his size, lacks elite athletic skills and footwork but looks to have some sort of balance in pass protection. Lacks part of the strength and power a man of his size is supposed to have- in the running game he’s able to move his opponent when he attacks him with an aggressive mindset but is not a mauler which he could be at his size. 7th His size his his best asset and also his limitation. Anyhow I think that because of his size he’ll be drafted but the Broncos would max valuing him as a 7th rounder. He’s slow, his footwork is very slow too and the power he could have is not translated into his game at least at times. Still a good coach could get the best of him and maybe develop him into a consistent RT down the line. If not, well a 7th round pick is not the worst you can do.
Pita Taumoepenu OLB 28 Utah Sr 6’1” 242 7th – CFA Has speed and quickness from the edge. Plays with agression and is sudden. Pass rusher specialist athta add power to his speed. Has average size for NFL 3-4 OLB (the position he would translate into) and that could be his limit on draft nights. Very productive player that needs to get bigger. 6th – 7th I think he’s underrated, he’s sudden and shows power also to beat the Olineman. His speed off the edge is undeniable and just a bit shorter to what the Broncos look at as a pass rusher. It’s look to be a deep class of pass rushers and he could end up with the short stick because of that. I really would like the Broncos to add him to the roster without the risk to losing him as CFA. I think he’s worth at least a 6th rounder and in his pro-day (23rd of March) he could show his athletic skills and define a bit more his draft stock.
Nate Gerry SS 18 Nebraska Sr 6’2” 214 7th – CFA Has very good size and plays very aggrassive. Captain of the team for two consecutive years. Lacks elues athletic skills but has some very good closing speed and some good range in pass coverage. Lacks short area quickness and some explosion to be able to change direction very quickly. CFA If he’d go undrafted he could be brought to training camp to compete for a special team spot meanwhile backing up at S. I like his aggressive style of play but he may lack some athleticism to become a reliable player in the NFL.
Pharaoh Brown TE 22 Oregon rSr 6’5” 250 7th – CFA
Kent Perkins OG 28 Texas Sr 6’5” 320 7th – CFA Has great size and power. Does a very good job in the running game at the LOS pushing away defenders and opening holes. Looks not very comfortable and athletic running to reach his assignment at the LOS, better when runs verticall to reach LBs. Does a good job againstthe pass, anchoring quite well against bullrushes. Doesn’t show great physiscality or aggressive style of playing. No I think the Broncos are looking for bigger and pore powerful Olinemen (as he is9 that plays with an aggressive style and are physical. He lasck the last two characteristics. Could fill well in other teams.
DeAngelo Yancey WR 50 Purdue Sr 6’1” 220 7th – CFA
Keith Towbridge TE 24 Louisville Sr 6’4” 262 7th – CFA
Jason Croom TE 25 Tennessee rSr 6’4” 252 7th – CFA Has good size and some eplosion at the snap. He’s a blocking TE that lacks a bit of short area quickness. Is able to place effective blocks on the move at the LOS or downfield. Lacks elite speed but looks to run smoothly. CFA A bit of an unknow because he was mostly used as a blocking WR, since he’s  built more like a tall WR than a stout TE, and he does good enough job here but as there is little evidence of his effectiveness as pass catcher the same could be argued on the contrary: he has all the tools to be an efective pass catcher out of the backfiled and in short to intermediate range. Lacks IMO elite athletic skills and speed to be a downfield pass catcher. He’s worth a second look in training camp if the Broncos are looking for blocking TE that could provide some versatility. He could be very effective as a blocker or pass catcher in Denver screen passes.
Cam Keizur C 15 Portland State Sr 6’4” 322 7th – CFA
Chris Carson RB Oklahoma State Sr 6’0” 218 7th – CFA Has good size, patience for the hole to opening and very good burnst and speed  to get some very good north – south runs. Lacks elite quickness and explosion. Is powerful and looks to be a good back for power running through defenders. Lacks shiftyness and not elusive. No evidence of pass protection or NFL style blocking skills. CFA He has quite good all around skills runnig the ball but he does  look elite in any area. Plaus the no evidence in blocking and pass catching lower his stock a bit. Still I think the Broncoa are in the RB market and if he would feel into CFA ranks, he would be a great addition in order to create competition in training camp.
Brandon Kublanow C Georgia Sr 6’2” 300 7th – CFA Lacks ideal height. Looks to have heavy feet in pass portection. Not been asked much to pull and reach the second level of defenders. Struggle a bit with powerful inside Dlinemen. Lack a bit of athleticism. Has big frame that let think he could get bigger and getting better functional strength at the next level. No He is a project and has the type of frame that let think that developing a better functional strength he could exponentially have better balance and power at the snap. Still I didn’t see him playen with the nasty streak the Broncos looks to covet in the Oline with the new coaching staff.
Kenneth Olugbode ILB Colorado Sr 6’1” 222 7th – CFA Has good enough size, will have to bulk up a bit in the NFL. Hard nosed linebacker that lacks elite athletic skills but has high motor and and some very good instinct that allows him to make plays. Lacks the speed to be a good man to man coverage linebacker, has the chance to be better in a zone defense scheme. Is restless in pursuing the ball carrier and is strong in run support. Not the side to side tupe of linebacker. CFA He isn’t the kind of linebacker that usually the Broncos covet but knows how to make plays and has good enough size to add some more weight and at least compete for a special team spot.
Kofi Amichia OG South Florida rSr 6’4” 302 7th – CFA Lacks a bit of size to translate to OT in the NFL. Looks to have good athleticism but lacks a bit of strength and power. Has so-so feet that allows him to perform quite well in pass protection while he lacks the power and explosion to be a force in the run game. looks comfortable when asked to run to a second level of defenders or to move at the LOS. CFA I thinkj he’d be an interesting developmetal player because he has the fundamental tools to play LT but lucks elite skills and he’s a bit short for what the NFL likes at the position. At G he’d have to put up beef and strength up to gain power and size. If he’d be able to do that without losing his athleticism, he could become a resilient LG, in my opinion.
Rodney Adams WR South Florida rSr 6’1” 189 7th – CFA Has very good burnst after the catch and can make defender miss with it. Has speed and some short area quickness. Very dynamic with the ball in his hands.Looks to be also a willing tackler in open field. 6th – 7th I think he could be a huge competitor for theBroncos returner specialist spot in the 53 men roster. He’s very dynamic and has grea burnst with some good vision too. Very worth a look in raining camp. Also he could be very dangerous in screens and these kind of plays that are integral part of McCoy Offense.

Zack Johnson OG 22 North Dakota State rSr 6’4” 346 CFA Has great size and some athleticism. Looks very powerful, in the run game is able to move comfortable around the LOS and getting to the LBs level pulling with balance and power. Lacks a bit of explosion at the snap but quite dominant at his level of competition. 4th – 5th I think he’s underrated and is flying under the media radar: To me he can play and big time. The only concern (and for this reason I would prefer the Broncos to use a 5th rounder to select him) is his weight: will he be able to handle it? Has power and shows very good athleticism for a massive man of his size.
Evan Schwan DE 29 Penn State rSr 6’5” 261 CFA Has very good size, will have to bulk up and get more powerful. Lacks elite athleticism and explosion at the snap. Has strength and is relentless. Looks to have a bit short arms. CFA Overachiever that may night have greta potential at the NFL level but if able to get bigger would have a really interesting combination of size and strength.
Casey DeAndrade FS 16 New Hampshire rSr 5’11” 216 CFA
Grover Stewart DT 32 Albany State rSr 6’4” 347 CFA
Noel Thomas WR 42 Connecticut Sr 6’0” 200 CFA Looks very stount and has a very good short area quickness and reflexes. Has very good acceleration after he catches the ball. Very average size for the NFL. Polished routes runner, lacks elite speed. Has some drops issue. Worked a lot from the slot position. does some good things blocking on open field. CFA He has interesting short area quickness and acceleration after the catch. Might be interesting to see him competing in training camp. Was productive in his senior year and quite less before and together with the fact that has some drops he may fall out of the draft. If available there I’d like the Broncos to bring him to training camo to see what he could bring to the table.
Max Halpin C 11 Western Kentucky rSr 6’2” 295 CFA Lacks ideal size. Looks quick at the snap reaching his position with urgency and being quite stout blocking. In the running game he looks quite athletic and use well leverage  whilke running to the second level to rerach is assignement. May have to learn how to get beter angles at blocking in space. Will need to become more powerful to be more productive in the inside run in short game situation where is size might become and handicap. CFA He might need a couple of years to develop, so I’m not sure if the Broncos would want to invest a practice squad spot on him not only in 2017 but maybe even in 2018. But i think that a trait that the new Oline has to have is a nasty demanour and the will to overtake the opponent, instead of finessing out. He played in a preatty powerful unit which goal was to overtake the opponent defense in order to get the running game going. That happens to be the way Denver might go for some years if the direction the FO will take at QB will be to folowing developing Siemian and Lynch.
Ken Ekanem DE 30 Virginia Tech rSr 6’3” 255 CFA Has good size at 4-3 DE or 3-4 OLB. Has soem quickness at the snap and looks to be smooth running. Lacks a bit of instinct, too patient at times on other he overrun the play. Became more powerful in 2016, displayed a better game against the run, being able to better set the corner against outside runs. Lacks explosion and speed to be a consistent pass rusher in the NFL. Lacks strenght and power to become a consistent run stopper. No Kind of developmental player that has veru good frame and skills to work with. I think he’s better suited to make the transition into NFL DE, getting up some weight, getting better functional strength and then playing strong against the run with some pass rushing ability. May become a functional rotational DE. for a 4-3 team.
Michael Rector WR 43 Stanford rSr 6’0” 187 CFA
Cameron Johnston P 4 Ohio State Sr 5’11” 195 CFA Has some power in his leg and some accurancy but he’s a bit inconsistent wether for technique or focus. CFA Denver selected a P in last year draft and I think that they will bring in training camp some competition and Johnston could be taht competition.
Zach Terrell QB 17 Western Michigan rSr 6’1” 206 CFA Lacks a bit of size for nowadays NFL standards. Will have to bulk up a bit. Has good armstrength and has good timing too. Needs to de  a much better job with his footwork. Looks quick when taking off and scramble but looks to lack good vision while runnign. His release looks to be a bit high at times  limiting the accurancy and the spiral of the ball allowing defenders to get in position. Takes usually good decisions for a college QB. No Lacks elite athleticism and size. Ñacks elite arm strength and accuracy. I think he has limited ceiling and if really developed hard he could become a reliable backup Qb in the NFL that comes in and make no mistakes. Still his skillset is complitely different from the one the Broncos might look at to bring competition in training camo for the 3rd QB spot.
Praise Martin-Oguike OLB 29 Temple rSr 6’0” 258 CFA Lacks size to become an NFL pass rusher DE or OLB. Looks stout and resilient in rushing the passes and has some power setting the edge against the run. Did play DE in college and no experience in dropping in coverage. No I don’t see the fit for the Broncos. He would be too much of a developmental project. His resiliency should earn him  a shot at DE in a 4-3 defense.
Jeremy Faulk DT 33 Garden City CC rSo 6’1” 305 CFA
James Quick WR 44 Louisville Sr 6’0” 182 CFA
Antony Auclair TE 21 Laval Sr 6’6” 256 CFA
ITavius Mathers RB 29 Middle Tennessee rSr 5’11” 198 CFA
Marquez Williams FB 9 Miami (Fla.) Sr 5’10” 275 CFA Power fullback that has an incredibly thick body and run pretty well for a men of his size. Quick and powerful blocker, able to get to his assignment and be sudden with the block. CFA Very interesting bull to brong to the training camp to compete. There is not much indication of his pass blocking and pas catching skills, but his run bocking is very good.
Corey Smith WR 45 Ohio State rSr 6’0” 188 CFA Has injury concerns having been injured in the past two seasons. Has explosion and quickness at the snap, very frluid runnign his routes, has some speed but lacks elite and plays very aggressive being able to make blocks in open field. Not a real LOS blocker thought but competitive and with good concentration. Lacks elite athleticism. CFA He brings injury concerns, if healthy he could be brought to compete in training camp, could surprise with his quickness and shiftyness.
Brad Watson CB 41 Wake Forest Sr 6’0” 192 CFA
Fred Zerblis OG 23 Colorado State rSr 6’2” 305 CFA
Brady Gustafson QB 18 Montana rSr 6’5” 239 CFA
Collin Buchanan OT 27 Miami (Ohio) Sr 6’5” 329 CFA
Kevin Davis ILB 18 Colorado State rSr 6’1” 237 CFA
Speedy Noil WR 46 Texas A&M Jr 5’11” 200 CFA Smaller type of WR. Has great ahort area quickness and great burnst. Has very good speed too and knows how to get open. Has been suspended for possession of cannabis. No Bringing to Colorado a young man with somekind of addition to Cannabis (he was arrested because of possession after the police had to come back to his apartment after coming already a first time) is not the best idea for the Broncos organization and also for the player that in other places could instead have less distractions and probably more success.
Joseph Yearby RB 30 Miami (Fla.) Jr 5’9” 207 CFA Change of pace back that has some serious quickness. Lacks elite explosion and vision to be a good inside the tackles runner. Has anyhow very good burnst and balance. Will have to bulk up to absorb NFL hits. Can catch some out of the backfield but has to get much metter in pass rpotection to be ready to see the field on sundays. CFA A runningback that do most of the things very good but not excels in any. He might need one yar of time to get used to NFL speed and power, to get stronger so that to be able to absorbe NFL hits and to develop a bit his game and become reliable in blocking and pass catching.
Chunky Clements DT 34 Illinois Sr 6’3” 304 CFA Has average size and good power. Lacks elite athletic skills and has problems sheeding blocks. Has some interesting initial quickness that allows his to penetrate at times in the backfield and create pressure. CFA He’s a n interesting Dlineman that does his best bringing pressure in the backfield. Will need to get better functional strength and if he succeed getting better at than he could be surprising.
Samson Ebukam OLB 30 Eastern Washington Sr 6’1” 238 CFA Lacks a bit of size. Relentless in his pass rushign pursue, has some good power, lasck elite athleticism, speed and explosion at the snap. In run defense he’s able to set quite well the corner and has some interesting lateral agility. Able to hold the corner and anchor well. 7th – CFA Underrated, he could be a good pick towards the end of the draft and could be brought in training camp and compete. Might need a year to develop his body and game but as 3-4 OLB he has chances to become a reliable rotational player.
Freddie Burden C 12 Georgia Tech rSr 6’3” 299 CFA
Ryan Higgins QB 19 Louisiana Tech rSr 6’0” 209 CFA Played in a super spread offense in the shotgun. Put up incredibles numbers in his only year as a starter. Had great weaponsat WR to play wih but not a consistent running game. Average or below average Oline protecting him. From the shotgun he’s really able to make plays, having a quick release and good armstrength. Throws the ball with energy and with quite good accurancy. Looks very calm and cold underpressure delivering throws with accurancy and timing. He’s really able to move around the pocke and create time for the receivers to break free. Anyhow he’s undersized and has no experience in a professional offense. Played in a division where he faced not much of elite level of defenses. CFA The Broncos under Elway  looks to like size in QBs and he has not. Still if the Broncos might land Romo and would trade Siemian, under this complex scenario he could be taken to be the third QB (even practice squad QB) because of some silimlarities with Romo: undersized, able to get time scrambling around, able to get the best under pressures. He’s an interesting prospect that if would be 2-3 inches taller might be in conversation for being selected in he third round.
Tony Annese FS 17 Central Michigan rSr 6’0” 215 CFA
Terrence Waugh DE 31 Kent State Sr 6’1” 262 CFA
Chad Williams WR 47 Grambling Sr 6’1” 204 CFA
Justin Davis RB 31 Southern California Sr 6’1” 200 CFA Has very good size. Knows how to place a block or to slow down a blitzing defender in the backfield. Good enough pass catcher out of the backfield, will need to bulk up in the NFL to absorbe the NFL hits. CFA Worth a look in training camp to see what exactly he could bring as a runner. He coudl provide a third down back option with his blocking skills and his pass catching ability.
Keith Kelsey ILB 19 Louisville Sr 6’0” 236 CFA
Michael Hutchings OLB 31 Southern California Sr 6’1” 218 CFA High energetic ILB. Plays with urgency and looks to be always around to throw a tackle. Lacks size to be a LB in the NFL. Good pass ctacher out of the backfield. Does a very good jpb sideline to sideline against the run. Is always around the ball and willing to use his body to tackle. Has some good enough speed and some very good quickness in re-direction. Lacks the speed and the explosion to be effective in coverge. CFA I really like his energy and aggressive style of play. He may be a two downs player only if he’s able to abruptly bulk up. Still interesting prospect that I hope the Broncos have an eye on.
Nate Theaker OG 24 Wayne State (MI) rSr 6’4” 319 CFA
Quincy Adeboyejo WR 48 Ole Miss Sr 6’3” 197 CFA Has some speed and can make some acrobatic catches thanks to a good athletic skills and some very good concentration. Lacks elite explosion but has very good balance and uses it well after the catch to gets some extra yards. Not really a blocker. Will need to gain weight. CFA Athletic WR that bring not much in terms of blocking but has very good balance, quickness and concentration. Lacks elite speed but can be moved around to find the best match with the opponent defense especially for intermediate throws.
Shalom Luani SS 19 Washington State Sr 6’0” 198 CFA
Brooks Ellis ILB 20 Arkansas Sr 6’2” 245 CFA
A.J. Wolf DT 35 Duke rSr 6’4” 280 CFA Has aveage size in the NFL for a interior Dlineman. Has the body of a 3-4 DE. Looks stout and could add some weight. Has some burnst at the snap but lacks elite speed and explosion. Does not have the highest potential. No Has a good look at 3-4 DE but lacks some size and that quickss that would make a undersized quite dangerous at the LOS.
Antonio Pipkin QB 20 Tiffin Sr 6’1” 225 CFA
Jon Heck OT 29 North Carolina rSr 6’6” 300 CFA ¿¿¿¿
Miles Bergner P 5 South Dakota Sr 6’0” 237 CFA
Josiah Price TE 23 Michigan State rSr 6’3” 248 CFA
Karel Hamilton WR 49 Samford Sr 6’1” 199 CFA
Elijah Hood RB 32 North Carolina Jr 5’11” 220 CFA Very good size. Runs with power and has interesting acceleration and shiftiness. Lacks elite vision. Looking more to run through defender with his power and size than to be shifty and elusive. Lacks elite athleticism but runs hard and determination. Can make some catch, lacks desirable blocking skills. CFA A prospect that would need to learn to be a bit more rounded in the pass catching and blocking department before he could make a 53 men roster. Still could be a very productive situational runner with size and power. For the Broncos could be a practice squad player and safe belt in case of CJ Anderson or Booker could go down with and injury.
Darrin Laufasa FB 10 Texas-El Paso Sr 6’0” 250 CFA
Anthony McMeans C 13 New Mexico State Sr 6’1” 318 CFA
Paul Magloire Jr. OLB 32 Arizona rSr 6’0” 225 CFA
Nate Hairston CB 43 Temple rSr 6’0” 192 CFA Quick and fast coming in run support, will need to get a better tackling technique in open field. Lacks power and a bit od strength. Looks quite athletic and flashy. Lacks elite speed and does not play super aggressive. No I think the Broncos are looking for  a speedy db that could play in special teams or to a man to man corner that has the athletic skills and the aggressive mindset to batlle receivers in every play. He has some talent but does not fit the bill for the Broncos, IMO.
Keith Brown ILB 21 Western Kentucky rSr 6’0” 240 CFA Interesting player that makes playes on yhe field. Lacks ideal size but looks to have room to get a big bigger, Can cover a bit. Although he has to improve and can blitz with quickness and suddeness too. Lacks change of direction skills and questionable read of the play. No Coukd be a surprise player if given the opportunity and given no off the field issue. He could provide some good, thought not great, return skills and could also provide something as WR.
Demetrious Cox FS 18 Michigan State rSr 6’0” 197 CFA
Pat OConnor DE 32 Eastern Michigan rSr 6’4” 275 CFA
Dante Barnett SS 20 Kansas State rSr 6’0” 193 CFA Has average size, was a leader of his defense and plays really aggressive. In coverage has to get much better locating the ball and staying with his assignment. Lacks a bit of athleticism. Really quick and fast coming at the LOS for sun support. Able to make good tackles on open field. 7th – CFA I think the Brocos are all in in athleticism and quickness at the position. Playing aggressive also id a huge factor. This said the Broncos could be interested in his leadership so that could set the tome to draft him with a low round pick or make him a very good addition as CFA.
Garrett Fugate QB 21 Central Missouri State rSr 6’2” 210 CFA
Zach Pascal WR 51 Old Dominion rSr 6’1” 216 CFA
Erik Austell OG 25 Charleston Southern rSr 6’3” 290 CFA
Hayden Hunt P 6 Colorado State rSr 6’0” 220 CFA
Dare Ogunbowale RB 33 Wisconsin rSr 5’10” 208 CFA Very good as a dynamic pass catcher and does good things in the pass blocking department. Is a kick returner too. 7th Does not have a really big size and lacks explosion but he’s a good enough blocker that excels in pass catching. In this NFL era dynamic pass catcher out of the backfield are always needed and the Broncos a part CJ Anderson lack a bit in the department.
Ukeme Eligwe OLB 33 Georgia Southern Sr 6’2” 239 CFA Has good size at linebacker. Was dismissed at Florida State, enrolled then at Georgia Southern. He’s athletic and has an aggressive styleof playing. Played at a lower level of competition in 2016 but looks to be quite dominant. Quick and fast in run support, identify and fill the gap very well, looks to have very good instincts. Looks to be quite good at side to side hustling and tackling. Cam make open field tackles. In coverage he’s raw and will need to get much better. 6th Tpo me he’s quite similar to Danny Trevathan. I don’t know the reason of his dismissal but had to be something serious given that he’s projected to go undrafted. Still he has all the skills and all the potential teh Broncos look at a LB. If he’s on the Broncos board he’d for sure a draftable grade, since Trevathan was a 6th rounder, he could have the same grade. But the upside is there to become a started in an aggressive 3-4 defense as the Broncos.
Bug Howard WR 52 North Carolina Sr 6’4” 210 CFA Big target, has great height, will need to get bigger ans more powerful. Quite smooth running with the ball in his hands in screens and reliable pass catcher in traffic. Will need to do a better job in route running and placing himself where he could get some extra yards after the catch. 6th – 7th Productive player that is a big target in the middle of the field. Has good enough hands and size to create problems to linebackers and nicklebaks. May not have the game speed to be a deep threath and has to get better in his route running to be more consistently open. Denver needs desperatly to find a third guy that could be come a weapon in third down situation and across the field. He could be developed in that, it may take one year for bulking up and getting stronger in order to absorbe linebacker and defensive backs blows.
Rigoberto Sanchez K 4 Hawaii Sr 5’11” 188 CFA Has good leg and some very good accuracy too. Looks to understand ball placement and is also a willing tackler. A Punter also, his kicks have the look of a NFL kicks. 7th  -CFA I like the looks of the kicks, really sound and quite strong. Will need to get even stronger at kickoffs but his skills as punter are almost as high as kicker and could be a very important addition as a special team player that could battle with McManus and might add depth at punting. McManus is a RFA and sign a tender that Broncos FO might consider a bit higher that what they think of the position.
Travis Tuiloma DT 36 Brigham Young rSr 6’2” 301 CFA Lacks a bit of size for NFL standars. Powerful, has a very good bullrush and is able to move the Olimen. Used in rotation in college, could bring pressure to the QB, pushing Olinemen backwards towards the passer. Does not have great lateral movement, a bit slow on his feet. He is a NT that is coming off a knee injury in 2016. he is quite powerful, can hold the point of attack. CFA To add competition in training camp if the Broncos won’t select any potential NT earlier in the Draft. Was really dynamic and powerful in 2015 but had 2016 cut short to a knee injury that required surgery.
Orion Stewart SS 21 Baylor rSr 6’0” 198 CFA
Tim Patrick WR 53 Utah rSr 6’4” 210 CFA Has very good size and the frame to add more muscles. Catches quite well the ball in traffic and looks to gain more yards after the catch. Runs good enough routs but lack quickness to get open. Still a tall receiver that will need to bulk up. CFA Interesting big target that will need time to adapt to the speed and the power of the NFL and will have to bulk up and have more upper body strength. He will have to find his role in special teams too inorder to make it ro a 53 men roster, even in yaear two because he looks to lack the speed to become  and outside receiver so he would be used as situational catcher on third downs and in the red zoen, but he’ll need to be bigger to sustain NFL hits.
Deyshawn Bond C 14 Cincinnati rSr 6’1” 300 CFA Ha very fgood functional power and is able to block one on one Dlinemen having quite good feet and looking to have strong hands. Lacks a bit od size and doesn’t look to have the kind of frame that would allow to put up a much bigger size. Still is quite quick at the snap and fast reaching his assignment. 7th – CFA He will have to adapt and develop his game to NFL power and speed but has quite good athleticism together with what looks to be very good functional stregth. Depending if the Broncos are looking to bring in rookie competitio at C, he is definetely worth a long look at training camp. Could surprise.
Maurice Smith FS 19 Georgia Sr 5’11” 196 CFA
Robert Leff OT 30 Auburn rSr 6’6” 299 CFA In the running game lacks great balance while pulling the Dlineman and could be moved out of the play. Lacks a bit of aggression or urgency at times. Still use well the leverage of his size to pull defender out of the running lane. CFA He will have to bulk up but looks to have the frame to do it. Lacks elite athleticism and balance to play T at least in his first years in the NFL. He will have to be developed for a couple of years and start playing at G and then he could also be mover at RT if he’d be bigger and more powerful.
Dominique Hatfield CB 44 Utah Sr 5’10” 175 CFA
Stanley Williams RB 34 Kentucky Jr 5’9” 196 CFA
Fadol Brown DE 33 Ole Miss rSr 6’4” 273 CFA Has some quickness and power at the snap. Lacks elite athleticism. Part of a rotation at inside Dlinemen at Ole Miss but played very aggressive. Has some explosion at the snap too and looks very athletic. 5th – 6th I like his game a lot,he will have to add some bulk but he could be a diamond in the rough towards the end of the draft. His power and athleticism con make him a great dusruptor if he could add some punds and keep his game. Very aggressive.
Austin Calitro ILB 22 Villanova rSr 6’0” 250 CFA
Jamal Marcus OLB 34 Akron rSr 6’1” 240 CFA
Austin Appleby QB 22 Florida rSr 6’4” 240 CFA Very good size and rare mobility. Is able to extend the play by scrambling around and then has the poise to keep on looking for an open WR downfield. Took snaps under center. On the other hand his balls does not have a great spiral. Start the year as backup to Luke Del Rio. Does not have a huge arm and played in a heavely running oriented offense. CFA He could be brougth to training camp to compete for the 3rd stringer QB. At the moment the Broncos have only two QB on the roster so it’s possible that two more QBs will joing the team through FA and draft. He will have to adapt to the speed of the game and becoming more powerful and spunded with his footwork.
Gavin Andrews OG 26 Oregon State rSr 6’5” 339 CFA Huge size, played C in 2016. A bit slow taking his stands, lacks quickness and less powerful than what it’s expected by a 6’5” 335 pounds. Because of his size, not really dynamic. Does not play with a nasty streak. No The lack pf power and the weight are two concerns to me.
Marcus Cox RB 35 Appalachian State Sr 5’10” 207 CFA
Jalen Robinette WR 54 Air Force Sr 6’3” 218 CFA
B.J. Singleton DT 37 Houston rSr 6’3” 312 CFA
Greg Mabin CB 45 Iowa rSr 6’1” 200 CFA Has some speed but looks to lack elite quickness. Comes fast down in run support and does a good enough job at tackling. Played in a lot of quarters and zone scheme in 2016. CFA He’s not the fastest CB in this draft class but has a good skills set, is coming down to the LOS fast in run support and has good size.
Zach Edwards FS 20 Cincinnati rSr 5’11” 200 CFA
Jordan Burton OLB 35 Oklahoma State rSr 6’2” 217 CFA Lacks weicth for NFL standard at LB. He might re-invent himself as SS. CFA He would have to learn to play SS in nickel and dime formaiton. His size could be on his side if he’ll be able to cover Tes and RB on passign downs. A project.
Jonah Pirsig OT 31 Minnesota rSr 6’8” 316 CFA
Patrick Ricard DT 38 Maine Sr 6’3” 285 CFA
Colin Holba LS 2 Louisville rSr 6’4” 245 CFA

Trent Cowan FB 11 Idaho Sr 6’3” 230 CFA
Derrick Griffin TE 26 Texas Southern rSo 6’6” 238 CFA
Tyler Catalina OG 27 Georgia rSr 6’4” 324 CFA Has a big frame and looks huge. Does not have the quickliest feet between the Olinemen and lacks quickness at the snap. Will have trounle with quick pass rusher and might be better suited to play G in the NFL because of his heavy feet. Still looks quite athletic and is able to move around. CFA He has rar athletic skills for a man of his size. He may need one year of `practice squad but could be developed into a G and if he has the desire and the will to put on the work he could end up startingat RG in the NFL down the line.
Taylor Reynolds CB 46 James Madison rSr 5’11” 195 CFA
Donovin Newsom ILB Missouri rSr 6’2” 230 CFA Has good burnst and power. Good awareness, lacks elite quickness and speed. No His size is interesting but the lack of speed and quickness does not make him a great fit for what the Broncos look at teh LB position.
Sean Culkin TE Missouri rSr 6’5” 245 CFA Very good size and have enough frame to add more pounds. Lacks elite speed to be a consistent vertical threath but is not afraid to play in the middle and have contact. Plays on the limits. Will need to get stronger and more powerful to both continuing being a reliable target in the passing game but also to become a much better blocker. CFA Iwhat most to like in him is his size and his pass catching skills. He does not have elite explosion, power or speed, but has the frame to put up pounds. He’s a porject in his blocking skills. All in all I don’t know what the Broncos are looking at the TE position. Still he could be brought tp camp, although he will have to impress to get a practice squad spot.
Chris Black WR Missouri rSr 5’11” 192 CFA Smooth and balanced running with the ball, able to get open running good enough routs. He also returns kickoffs CFA Coukd be a surprise player if given the opportunity and given no off the field issue. He could provide some good, thought not great, return skills and could also provide something as WR.
Rushel Shell III RB West Virginia rSr 5’10” 227 CFA Lacks elite speed and explosion but has very good balance and some acceleration to go through. Also has some vision and patience for finding and waiting the hole to open. Lacks open field speed. CFA He needs to get better at pass blocking to make a 53 men roster. Lacks elite speed and explosion, but looks to have good vision and quickness.
Daikiel Shorts III WR West Virginia Sr 6’0” 204 CFA Moves well in in the center of the field in shorts and intermetdaite throws. Has quite good hands and is a reliable catcher. Lacks elite explosion and speed abut has some quickness and is fast. Will have to bulk up and learn to block. CFA A prospect that could be interesting to bring to training camp in case the Broncos will be looking for a slot/possession WR.
Lenzi Pipkins CB Oklahoma State rSr 6’0” 197 CFA Good size, will have to bulk up a bit and looks to have the frame for. Makes some very good open field tackles and is not afraind to come at the LOS in run support and hit the RB. CFA Has some speed and looks to have a competitive mentality, does not give up on plays. Played mainly in nickel and dime packages and that is the position where he could translate into the NFL.
Barry Sanders RB Oklahoma State rSr 5’09” 198 CFA Smaller size running back that is a very good returner, patient but quick, powerfull and with great burnst running north-south. CFA If the Bronocs are looking to find some  specialist for the return game, he could be brought to camp to compete and have a shot a returner. Ido like his return skills.
Greno Lewis WR Oklahoma rSr 6’1” 204 CFA Reliable catcher when targeted both in open field than in the end zone. Lacks elite speed and athleticism but has good footwork and run decent routs inside. CFA He nmay be brought to training camo to compete for teh slot receiver and be developed into one. Has some quickness and burnst that could help him.
Jordan Wade DT Oklahoma rSr 6’4” 319 CFA Has very good size for an interior Dlinemen, especially for a 3-4 DE. Has some strength and power, not the most athletic dlinemen in the draft but has is quite solid against the run. Not a pass rusher but is able to bring some pressure at times to the QB, creating havoc in the backfield. CFA He coudl be targeted as CFA to bring competition in trainig camp as3-4 DE. Has the size the broncos look for and his speciality is to defend against the run, area where the Broncos will have the get better in 2017.
Jhajuan Seales WR Oklahoma State rSr 6’1” 206 CFA Looks bigger that his actual size. Has some very good vertical speed and run some acceptable routes with some quickness ain change of direction. Drops some easy catches. CFA If still looking ofr a slot receiver and willing to develop one, he could be brought to training camp to compete and show what he could add to the team.
Pasoni Tasini DT Utah rSr 6’2” 295 CFA Has average size for  a DT in the 4-3 defense but lacks a bit of height for the prototypical 3-4 DE. Will need to get more powerful. Player taht always looks to make a play. Relentless. CFA He lacks the ideal size the Broncos like but is a relentless football player that is willing to do the unnoticed work in order the team to be successful.
Reginald Porter CB Utah rSr 5’11” 189 CFA Does not have the softest hands to get interceptions, plays aggressive at the snap. Lacks ideal size for NFL DBs, will have to get bigger and stronger. He looks to be always close to his receiver, battling for the break up the pass or to tackle the receiver just after the catch.  Looks quite athletic but lacks elite speed and explosion. CFA he reminds  me a bit of Chris Harris Junior for his size and his scrappiness, his ability to be close to his man and continuosly fight for the play. Has less athleticism but it’s for sure worth a look in training camp.
Andy Phillips K Utah rSr 5’10” 210 CFA Has a quite strong leg and accurancy. The team relied on him a lot in close games for over 40 yards distance. That’s quite a lot in college ranks. CFA To bring competition in training  camp. He looks very confident and was asked to make quite a few important kicks.
Ricky Jones WR Indiana rSr 5’10” 185 CFA Smaller type of wide receiver and kick returner, has some good balance and looks smooth running with he ball. Lack elite explosion and quickness in change directions. Have good not great hands and has to do a better job running routes when playing WR. CFA I think the Broncos at the moment are interested in anybody that is a returnes and could be developed in an acceptable slot receiver. I think that Jones might compete as returner and has a bit of a more longshot at slot receiver.
Brian Gaia C Penn State rSr 6’2” 292 CFA Lacks ideal size but is very powerful and quiite athletic. Is able to take various blocking angles and to push back violently the defender or to get to the second level with good enough quickness and place his block. On Pass blocking is not as good but neither in incompetent, will have to get bigger and a bit more nimble with his feet. 7th – CFA He lacks size and a bit of athleticism but plays very hard and looks to be on top of every play. I think he could play in the NFL provided that he gets bigger.
LeShun Daniels Jr. RB Iowa Sr 5’11” 225 CFA Has good size and looks thick. Has good balance and is hard to tackle on open field. Catch the ball quite naturally out of the backfield. Lacks elite explosion and speed. CFA He’s a third down RB, has some power to get the few yardage to move the chains on the ground, provided a good play from the Oline, or can be used in screens that makes him dangerous out of the backfield. Worth a look in training camp because outside CJ Anderson the Broncos actually lack a reliable weapon  in screen on thrid down.
Nocholas Norris WR Western Kentucky Sr 5’9” 175 CFA Small type of WR that runs quite ok routes and looks to have good hands. Will need to bulk up to sustain NFL hits, plays all around the field. Has some quickness to work with and looks to move fast with some shiftness. Lacks elite speed but has some changing direction skills. CFA I kind of like what he brings to the table, although lacking pure speed he’s fast and runs good enought routs athat allows him to break free both at the perimeter and downfield. He won’t overpower any defender but has some change of direction and balance skills that could allow him to get some extra yardage after the catch. He playes at the slot position so there will be plenty of concept he’s already used. He coudl be a really interesting player to bring to training camp to compete for a roster spot or at least for a practice squad.
Anthony Wales RB Western Kentucky rSr 5’9” 194 CFA Lacks size to be an effective runner in the NFL, will have to add weight and keep the balance that is maybe his best asset. Can  mke defender miss in open field. He’s more dangerous following a pulling G or running a toss into the outside where he’s able to break some tackle. Has some good vision that helps him finding the hole and cutting through it. Lacks a bit of endurance in long runs winding down his speed exponentially. Not an inside the tackle runner, has less patience and less vision when facing big Dlinemen and linebackers face to face. CFA Kind of back athat will need to get bigger and powerful maintaining his skillset intact to have a shot to be a backup back in the NFL and have around 10 to 15 carries per game. He will need to be more consistent in his blocking, and becoming bigger and more powerful would just help him. Still he his a reliable receiver out of the backfield or in the short range and runs very well with some interesting vision and patience. Run behing a Oline that dominated its conference anf that sureley helped him putting up numbers and making plays (a lot of left side tosses behind Forrest Lamp) but still an interesting and productive player that delivered when called into play.
Omarius Bryant DT Western Kentucky Sr 6’2” 310 CFA Is powerful and have good lower body strength. Looks tired at times, a bit inconsistent wth his game. Lacks ideal size but looks to have room to get bigger. Could push the C or the G in the backfield when on disrupting both running game and passing game. Lacks elite athletic skills and wuickness at the snap to put pressure on QBs consistently. CFA Lacks size but has actually some interesting strength and power that could be developed into a stout undersized NT in the nfl if he’ll be able to get bigger and more powerful and put in a lot of work.
Nick Dawson-Brents DE Western Kentucky rSr 6’3” 275 CFA He has good size for a 4-3 DE, lacks a bit of size for a 3-4 DE and a bit of quickness and experience to be a 3-4 OLB. I think his most natural position in the NFL would be 4-3 DE playing againts the run once he could adapt to play at the speed and power of the NFL. This said he has sparks of very good pass rushing moves and also is quite solid againts the run for the competition level he faced in his college career. Transferred from Louisville to Western Kentucky and played a key role in the 4-3 fron tseven for his team. CFA for a 3-4 defense scheme he’s a total project. StillI think he could be asked to lose some pounds and spent one year of practice squad learning how to drop in coverage and then he might become an interesting rotational 3-4 OLB for the Broncos, especially against the run.
Dwayne Thomas CB LSU rSr 6’0” 186 CFA Lacks ideal size for a DB, will have to get bigger and more powerful. Has very good acceleration. Covered slot WR in college and is quite sudden after the receiver catch. Also has good football knowledge to read and react to the situation. Also underrated athletically. Had one accident with the law in 2015 but the accusation were dropped. 5th – 6th I think that he might need development (physical) and to acclimate to NFL speed and power but he has some potential IMO. Played the slot position at LSU and very well in 2016, is quick in straight line a nd has awareness and knowledge of the game. Can cover slot receivers and their routes at collegiate level and could learn to be productive as nickel corner in the NFL. REally good in coming down helping stopping the run, he’s not afraid of tackling. His acceleration could, meanwhile, be a good key for earning him a spot in special teams as a gunner.
Josh Boutte OG LSU Sr 6’4” 356 CFA Good height and great weight makes his size very interesting even more since he does not look oversized at all. Has the power that comes with being 350 pounds. Does not look very comfortable when pulling and reaching his assignment but if quite effective anyhow. Will need to get a better funciotnal strength that could give him better body balance. 7th Very big man that has some very good power. If Denver could give him better functional strength he could really surprise and become a reliable G. Has a wide frame plays with surprising balance for a player of his size. I think he’s underrated and very draftable towards the end of the draft, then he’ll need time to develop and get used to the speed and power of the NFL, so maybe one year in practice squad for the competing in 2018 for a 53 men roster spot.
Colin Jeter TE LSU Sr 6’6” 250 CFA Great size. Look less powerful taht what he could be with his size and has all the athletic limitation his size brings. Can catch some ball in the short range or out of the backfield as a HB but does not have a good blocking technique and at times does not finishe well his block allowing his target to be part of the defensive stop. No I didn’t see enough blocking skills to warrant a look in training camp. He does not have eite athletic skills and a very good body language in the passing game so be a good and reliable blocker could be important for a NF career, but I cannot see it.
Joey Ivie DT Florida Sr 6’3” 300 CFA Average size for a DT and NT in the NFL, has some flashes of quickness againts the run and some strength at the snap in general. Look to has room to add some more power. Does not have elite pass rushing skills. Show some skills in directing the interior of Florida DLine. CFA I think the Broncos should look for diamonds in the rough for their Dline, especially domebody that could help againts the run and could be able to push back the pocket in passing situation. Ivie looks to be aware of what he’s doing on the field and was able to tell his more heralded DT partner at Florida Brantley where to put himself at the line.
Quincy Mauger SS Georgia Sr 6’0” 208 CFA Lacks ideal size. Was a backup in 2016. Plays with a good aggressive mindset and has good range to get to the sideline to tackle to ball carrier. He’s fast coming in run support as eight men in the box, lacks a bit of instinct and can overrun the play or miss a gap because of that. CFA He has the aggressive mentality that the Bronocs like in DBs. Could be brougth to training camp to see what he could bring especially in special teams and with his athleticism how he could develop his game into a backup DB.
Tony Stevens WR Auburn Sr 6’4” 212 CFA He has great size. Will have to bulk up some. Lacks elite athletic skills and explosion. Has very good speed and is able to get open. Run good enough routes but will have to get much better. Does not have a very good body language, does not look to play with urgency. Have drops issues due in part of him not been able to make athletic catches. CFA His size and speed deserve a shot in training camp. If he could learn more complex routes and would run them well he could be a weapon especially in the end zone, although his drops issue will still be there but that is one of the reason why I have a CFA grade on him.
Bam Bradley ILB Pittsburgh rSr 6’2” 230 CFA Stout in run support. Does not bring much in pass coverage. Has good size and some strength to work with. CFA Every year the Broncos bring to training camp some ILB to give competition to incumbent that are either low round picks or CFA. This year incapie might be run defense and is Bradley strong suit. He might be brought in to compete.
Shakir Soto DE Pittsburgh Sr 6’3 270 CFA Has below average size for an interior Dlineman. Will have to bulk up but has the frame to add thr necessary pounds. Looks more suited to become a 3-4 DE in the NFL. Stout, played he most of the snaps not been counted into a regular rotation. Looks powerful and anchoring quite well against the run. Does not provide much pass rushing skills but is able to disengage the block with unsuspected quickness when the opportunity for a QB hit arise. CFA Developing project that could give high reward. May not become an All-Pro but he’s very stout and aggressive. If able to add 15 to 20 pounds and the related strength he could become a factor againts the run at least.
Robert Wheelwright WR Wisconsin Sr 6’2 205 CFA Runs very smooth with the ball in his hands, good pass catcher in traffic has good size and a wide frame that could allow him to add some pounds to get stronger in the NFL. Lacks elite speed but is very athletic and explosive. Had a very good Pro Day. Is able to get some good yards after the catch thanks to a better than average balance. Not really effective in blocking and setting the edge in the run game. Had some drops in critical moments. CFA Is a good enough possession WR with very good athleticism and smoot runner of inside routes. He lacks speed and has some drops issue. If he goes undrafted, Denver should really try to being him to training camp to compete for a 53 men spot.
Colin Thompson TE Temple rSr 6’4” 254 CFA Has good size with broad shoulders. Looks good blocking as an added Olineman, has power and looks to take good blocking angles. Lacks elite athleticis and speed. Average quickness. Fearless in traffic, is able to make catches and take serious hits bt¡y defenders. CFA Interesting prospect that could bring some competition at blocking TE in training camp. He will never develop into pass catching weapon but with his broad shoulders and very good overall size he could be a good target in the endzone. Plus he’s a willing blocker.
Jordan Westerkamp WR Nebraska rSr 5’11” 194 CFA Lacks ideal size and will ahve to bulk up a bit. Very energetic and synamic player that is not afraid of contact and has quickness and is really fast in the first 10 yards. Lacks elite speed and explosion. 7th – CFA Had a torn meniscus at the end of the season and his size could bring some durabuliy question. He could be chose towards the end of the draft and developed as slot receiver and at least compete for  the 4th WR slot in training camp.
Shaq Hill WR Eastern Washington rSr 5’09” 193 CFA Smaller WR that shows great quickness and shiftyness. Is able to make defender miss with the ball in his hands. Looks quite stout for his size. CFA Could e an interesting option in the return game to be evaluated in training camp.
Alex Kelley C Colorado rSr 6’2” 327 CFA Has average size for a NFL C and lacks a bit of height for a G. Has some power and anchor well enough in the pass protection. Is able to block the opponent with some good enough push in the run game. Not really athletic and comfortable to run to the second level odf defenders. CFA Not the most athletic olineman butdoes quite well in the passing game and could have better success in the run game developing a much better functional strenght that would allow hism to have more balance instead of relying on pure strength ot power. Will need to take care of his weight. I see him at C in the NFL because that could get some reps at G too. Developmental prospecta that might spend a year in practice squad.
Samson Kafovalu DE Colorado rSr 6’3” 299 CFA Dymanic at the LOS, uses to occupy defenders. Does not provide great quick moves to get to the backfield but has some interesting power and strength. CFA Lacks size at DE for what the Broncos looks to like but is also quite powerful and dymanic. Able to move around the LOS and create some kind od pressure, also anchor better than expected against the run. Worth a look and to compete in training camp.
Eli Ankou DT UCLA rSr 6’3” 331 CFA Big prospect that has some very good anchering snd some good movement at the LOS to create the occasional pressure or hits on the QB. Does have enough movements at the LOS to occupy lanes and blockers. CFA Interesting option at NT for the Broncos that are looking for competition and loooks to not value much drafting at the position up to know, prefering a late round pick of going through undrafted players.
Cameron Judge OLB UCLA Sr 6’1” 220 CFA Ultra athletic prospect that has very good speed and is quite explosive. The athleticism does not translate into the field. CFA Maybe the Broncos could try to develop him into a situational pass rusher with time and getting hism a bit bigger and with better technique.
Tahaan Goodman SS UCLA Sr 6’1” 191 CFA playes faster than his 40 yards dash at his pro day. Has very good short steps quickness and gets fast to the receiver if he’s able to locate him fast enough. CFA I like his ability to go after the receiver and the ball with a physical style and his short area quickness. Worth a look in training camp.
Jordan Carrell DT Colorado Sr 6’2” 290 CFA Undersized DT that plays hard and is quite productive when in matters (3rd down plays). Lacks size, will have to get bigger ans stronger. CFA Has 5 and half sacjs on the season and played very well in critical downs. Lacks size and will need time to develop his body and his game for the NFL:
Akeem Judd RB Ole Miss rSr 5’11” 224 CFA Has good size. Hits the hole hard and with explosion, lacks elite quickness but shows good enough patience and some vision. Powerful running the ball more than shifty but able to make defender miss a bit. Is able to provide some blocking skills at the LOS and in the backfield and on open field too. Also csapable of catching the ball out of the backfield. Lacks elite speed and athletic abilities. 6th  Ilike a lot what I saw in his game, He lacks elite athletic skills and speed, but has patience and some vision. Can be a three downs player since he can block some and pass catch some too. Looks very smooth with the ball in his hands. I would not discard drafting him before the end of the draft.
Casey Sales DT Ohio Sr 6’4” 289 CFA Has some quickness at the snap and uses his huge body to overpower the Olineman. Able to create pressures in the pass defense. Plays aggressive and has very good power and some speed too. Is able to use well is hands in the pass rush to shed Olinemen blocks. Lacks elite athleticism and has questionable short area quickness. 6th A penetrator DE in the 3-4 scheme.  Will need to ger use to NFL power and speed but has the size and the tool to develop into a very good 3-4 DE.
Eric Smith OG Virginia Sr 6’4” 312 CFA Has good size and power. Is able to get to the second level of defenders and put on a nasty block. Plays aggressive. Lacks elite athleticism and balance. Will need to add weight and get better functional strength. Could be used a RT too but lacks ideal height. Developmental prospect that might have more upside than other Olinemen. CFA A complete developmental prospct that has some tools to be used by very good coaching to elevate his game into a NFL level, Has the chance to become a very veristile Olineman that could play snaps at both G spots and at RT if needed. Has some athleticism and good power together with nasty approach to the game. I like it.
Jhavon Williams CB Connecticut rSr 5’10” 186 CFA Lacks size and weight to be ready to play in the NFL. Lacks elite speed and change of direction. Can be overpowered by bigger WR blocking him on open field. Has some good instinct and can make some open field tackles. Can cover some man to man but will be in trouble with bigger WR because he looks to lack elite explosion. CFA Intiguing prospect that lacks size and top athletic skills but looks to be a grinder and is able to make plays. Kind of player that is an overachiever and that is not safe to bet against. Competitor taht could turn some heads in training camp, might becoem a reliable backup at CB.
Dominique Threatt OG South Florida Sr 6’2” 333 CFA Experienced Olineman that has power and plays aggressive. Lacks elite athleticism and a bit lethargic at times athe snap, has a big body that uses well to overpower when pulling but that looks not to bother him when has to move at the LOS or get to a second level of defenders. Lacks size at 6’2”. CFA A player that plays with a nasty streak but lacks size and athletic skills. Might be interesting to see him competing in training camp because his game is not bad at all.
Richard Levy OG Connecticut rSr 6’5” 313 CFA Great size for an interior Olineman, looks stout and powerful when pulling. Has goos anchor when is able to get balance out of the snap. Slow at he snap at times and at times has awareness problems. Lacks elite athleticism, quickness and explosion. Will be a liability against quick and speed rushers. In the running game does a better job but will have to add funcitonal strength to have more power when blocking at the LOS. No I like the size but his lack of awareness and his being quite slow at he snap worry me.
Jackson Day OG Western Michigan Sr 6’3” 297 CFA Lacks size and weight for NFL standard at Olineman. At time sstruggles to get his balance after the snap. When he gets it, anchir well against the pass rush and looks powerful. Lacks elite athleticism but in the run game does a good enough job getting to the second level of defenders. Looks comfortable enough while running. No He might get some better functional strength to help him set the balance better but I don’t see much aggression and physiscality in his game.
Justin Ferguson SS Western Michigan rSr 6’1” 202 CFA Tranferred from Notre Dame, been a WR in high school. Looks really quick and aggressive in run support. Delivery hard hits and take good atckling angles in open field. Not really flashy in the pass defense. Looks to lack elite speed and read and react quickness. CFA Has very good size and plays aggressive to the ball. On the other hands will have to study a lot how to get better in pass coverage. He playes in special teams in collge so could get a better look for a spot in the 53 men roster.
Ladell Fleming OLB Northern Illinois rSr 6’0” 230 CFA High motor defender that lacks ideal NFL size for DE but could be converted into 3-4 OLB. Has some quickness and power at the snap, some explosion and speed. Has trouble in disangage blocks with big Ots. Lacks the power ands strength and straingt speed to be able either to bullrush or to come from the corner against NFL Olinemen. Will have to bulk up and maintain his quickness. 6th – 7th Had a great Pro day showing explosion and some good enough speed to warrant some calls for competing in training camp. His size is a lmitation at 6’0”. He’s still an interesting undersized player that is a project because will have to get bigger and stronger but that has some tool to work with. May be candidate for a year in practice squad.
Carrington Thompson WR Western Michigan rSr 6’2” 177 CFA Lacks size to be effective in the NFL. Looks to be athletic and has short area quickness that allows him to gets some extra yards after the catch. Can make some acrobatic catches. CFA Good to have him in training camp to see if he couldbe used as a slot receiver and how reliable of a target he could be in third downs.
Jamaal Payton ILB Northern Illinois Sr 5’10” 232 CFA Lacks ideal height fot the ILB position in the NFL. Hard nosed and powerful run stuffer that is really stout and anchor very well and is difficult to move from his position. Offer less in pass defense lacking ideal athleticism and speed to be a good coverage LB in the NFL. No Lacks the athletic skills the Broncos look for and also the speed and endurance to be a side to side player.
Joel Bouagnon RB Northern Illinois Sr 6’1” 230 CFA Huge size for a RB. Has power and some good acceleration but lacks speed and IMO a bit of vision. Lacks a bit of shiftyness, yards after the first contact come by overpowering the defender not by elusiveness. No I think he lacks a bit of athleticism and vision. Would not add any additional skills to the player actually on the roster. But his size deserve considerations.
Josh Ruka OG Northern Illinois rSr 6’5” 302 CFA Very good size for a interior Olineman, has the frame to add some more weight. Very inconsistent player that struggle mighty at times with both bullrushes and speed rushes in the passing game. In the running game also he shows his inconsistencies and at times is completely able to get his assignmen neutralized and in other cases struggle with it. CFA I think that the size here matter. Then it will depend on how he could be see in raining camp by the coaches, if they see in him a developmental player with big upside or just an inconsistent executer.
Charmeachealle Moore ILB Kansas State rSr 5’11” 223 CFA Really stot polayer that has some athleticism and quickness. Lacks height and some size for NFL ideal. Able to run side to side and has good acceleration that could make him dangerous in blitzes. In coverage needs to do a better job staing with his assignment while keep on tracking the ball. CFA He may have lacks of size and will have to bulk up and learn how to play his game in he NFL but looks to be a very aggressive player that also knows which are his limitation and don’t try to highlight himself at his team loss. Could start his NFL career as special teamer and meanwhile adapting to NFL speed and power and learn how to play better passing coverage. Could be a backup in early downs.
Devin Lauderdale WR Texas Tech rSr 5’1” 180 CFA Smaller type of receiver but dynamic and very athletic. Can make catches all around the field and has some short area quickness thatc ould make him also a returner in special teams. CFA Lacks of blocking and elite speed don’t help a smaller type of receiver. Still he could be a good addition to the roster to try to see if he could be a good all around player and effective in special teams.
Tony Morales C Texas Tech rSr 6’2” 290 CFA Olineman that does a good job anchoring an¡fter snapping the ball especially in the passing protection. In run protection he does not look comfortable running around and pulling the opponent. Lacks balance and power and lacks a bit of size too. Overall looks to lack eklite athleticism. No I think that he lacks a bit of that athleticism that the Broncos cover and also does not look to be overly aggressive and playing with a sense of urgency. Also the will the get bigger at the Oline does not help Morsles case in my Broncos perspective.
Nico James DT Mississippi State rSr 6’4” 328 CFA
Joseph Jones ILB Northwestern rSr 6’0” 231 CFA Very aggressive player that lacks a bit of height but has otherwise good size, looking thick and stout. Has some interesting quickness and speed taht allows him to be a good blitzer and to have good range in side to side hustling. Has special teams experience and potential at the NFL level. CFA Very raw linebacker that was used mostly in blitzing schemes but could be interesting to see what else could bring to the table in training camp. I like his sense of urgency, his aggressivenes and his physical play.
Daniel Brunskill OT San Diego State rSr 6’5” 273 CFA Converted TE, played in his senior year at OT after playing in 2015 at TE. Looks dynamic and raw. Lacks ideal weight and will have to get his weight up some to be able to compete in the NFL as OT. Looks really strong and athletic in pass protection.  Looks to run with ease and pulling very well on the run. Dominate the second level of defenders when he’s required to get there. Impressive plays for his 1st year at the position in college. 7th I think that he could be a very good developmental prospect. If able to get some weight and strenght on, he could become really good and at least a swing T in the NFL. Has the height and the lenght, needs more technique, hand placement and repetition. A late rounder, snce Denver has some at the moment could be well spent on him.
Lucas Wacha ILB Wyoming rSr 6’1” 225 CFA He has average size, will need to put some weight on. In his Pro Day he looked and tested as athletic as his videos show. Lacks a bit some kind of agressive style of play but runs quite well and has quite good range from sideline to sideline. Coverage is not really his best suit but is able to cover quite well in between the number in short and intermediate throws to WRs and TEs CFA Interesting because very athletic but lacks a bit of instinct and does not have the aggressive style of play that Denver FO likes in his players. If available as undrafted college free agent he could be brought to training camp and could be a candidate to a practice squad spot in order to get used to the power, speed and complexity of the NFL game.
Kwayde Miller OT San Diego State rSr 6’7” 303 CFA Great size, has the frame to add weight. Will need to get a better functional strenght and so maybe gain a bit of balance. Has raw but quite good feet in pass protection. Really dynamic in pass protection. Lacks power in the running game, moves well at the LOS and between the line of defenders but will need to get stronger and more powerful. CFA His size is considerable. He won’t have consideration at LT but could develop his game and become a NFL RT at 6’7” ifg he’s able to put some weight on and get better balance. Does not look very comfortable at running which is ok for a guy of his size.
Paul Perschon OG Toledo rSr 6’6” 319 CFA Big OG that has good balance, his quick at the snap but lacks a bit of strenght in the upper body and some technique with his hands to keep defenders engaged in the block. Runs really comfortably when moving around the LOS and reaching the second level of defenders. CFA Will need to be able to get a better balance in pass protection and to keep engaged his assignment. Plays aggressive and is able to do a very good job when he can mantain his balance. Really interesting develpmental player that might use one year of practice squad to become a reliable option at G but maybe also at RT.
Corey Jones WR Toledo rSr 5’08” 165 CFA Has serious game speed (his 40 yard time at his Pro-Day is really slow) and made plays all around the field and as punt returner in college. Has very good quickness. Lacks size. CFA He would need to bulk up some and keep his quicknes, speed and burnst. Could be useful in the returning game and as slot receiver too because of his short area quickness allows him to make sudden cuats and running tought routes to be covered by LBs.
Kai Nacua FS Brigham Young Sr 6’1” 205 CFA Has good size, plays aggressive and looks very athletic and at times very explosive too. Able to make good open field tackles. 6th Looks to be in the mold of aggressive and physical S that the Broncos like, able to play bot S position if needed. Will need to test well in training campo but he’s way flying uder radar now. Had a great Pro Day testing very good in all categories.
Sae Tautu OLB Brigham Young rSr 6’2” 238 CFA Lacks a bit of size for playing as 3-4 OLB in the NFL. Will need to beef up and get stronger. Very aggressive on the field, energetic and physical. Looks to be quick at the snap. Struggle at times to shed bloks, will have to get better functional strenght and much better power. CFA Will need to bulk up a bit and get stronger. Has very good athletici skills and quickness. Might need a year of “seasoning” but could become a quite interesting OLB in the NFL.
A.J. Jefferson DE Mississippi State rSr 6’2” 280 CFA Injured at the shoulder in 2016.
Josh Atkinson WR Tulsa rSr 6’2” 200 CFA Interesting WR that lacks size and some speed to be a sure thing in outside routes in the NFL but that everething he did in Tulsa was catching balls showcasing one handed and athletic catches. Will need to get a big more powerful to be able to put some block on too. Was also a bit inconsistent with some drops and some missed catches. CFA Has average size but can make catches (and also misses some). Bottom line he was able to put himself in the position to make plays and looks to be a football player. Had not a good show at his Pro Day being very slow in the 40 yarda dash and having a not good performance overall. I like the videos I saw on him but most of them where on 2015. He had a great season in 2016 (8 TD for more than 1000 yards). I think he could be worth a look on training camp and could be a candidate for a parctice squad slot.
Dane Evans QB Tulsa rSr 6’0” 210 CFA He lacks height  for NFL stabndards. Has good armstrenght and good accuracy. Great pocket awareness and the ability to scramble looking downfield. Can prolongue the play and has some speed, quickness and elusiveness to be able to run some himself. Footwork need to be taken care and throwing motion should be a bit corrected. Still a very dynamic playmaker that lacks size but show great poise in the pocket and is able to take some very good decisions. CFA I like him a lot. He look to me like a young Tony Romo, very active and slinging the ball around the field. Safe net are his legs with whom he can run around very smoothly and can grab some first down also. A two years developmnet and if the Broncos look for a 3rd stringer with potential and since were interested in Romo, he would be my guy.
Keevan Lucas WR Tulsa Sr 5’09” 192 CFA Smaller type of WR that has a thich and wide body. Lacks explosion at the snap but runs very good routs. Has excellent acceleration with which could make up to the lack od elite speed. Looks quite string for a WR of his size and can place some blocks on the move. IMO lacks some quickness that would make him an interesting prospect at the slot position. CFA The Broncos attended at Tulsa Pro Day and I think they went mostly to check him out after a disappointing performance at the Combine. He run a slower 40 yards dash, a very bad time for a WR but imporved some explosion drills. It looks funny but that explosion I cannot see it on his videos, I can see his acceleration when he gets the second gear in open field. He runs very good routs and this si the skill that could get him a CFA contract by the Broncos.
Barrett Gouger C Vanderbilt rSr 6’4” 309 CFA Great size for an interior Olineman. Looks to have good power and to be ablto to take good blocking angles in the passing game. In the running game he lacks a bit of athletic skills running around the LOS. Lacks balance and lower body power for blocking while moving. CFA Because of his size and his pass blcoking he could be interesting to bring to training camp and let him compete mainly for a spot in the practice squad. He will have to get a much better functional strenght and find a way to have more balance improving his footwork to be effective in the run game.
Brandon Radcliff RB Louisville rSr 5’09” 206 CFA Average size for a RB, not the most athletic RB in the class but very dynamic and even more important a player that can be a three downs back because he can block some and he can catch the ball out of the backfield. Not a downfield receivers by any stretch. Lacks a bit of power too and has not elite speed. Has some good balance running the ball and short area quickness that makes him a bit elusive. Hit the hole hard and with speed. Is not a downhill runner. Has some explosion when getting at the LOS. CFA I think theat as a backup he could be interesting because he could be added in any situation and could do his part. In a solid offense he could be a very good contributor although he does not excell in anything but is solid or could become solid (blocking) with some coaching and his effort.
Cameron Malveaux DE Houston rSr 6’5” 273 CFA Had an incredible performance at his Pro Day showing great speed for his size and explosion and quickness. His videos are less impressive, he lacks elite explosion, and quic¡kness at the LOS and also would need to get stronger and more powerful to anckle better against the run. Shows some movement in the pass rush, is able to bring pressure going against interior Olinemen, less against OTs. Best position in the NFL might be 3-4 DE. CFA Because of his size and the number he put up in his pro day if I would be the Broncos I would try to get him into training camp and there see exactly why the videos don’t match the wprk pout performance.
Michael Clark WR Marshall rJr 6’6” 217 CFA Huge size, has the frame to add several pounds more. Lacks elite speed but moves quite well around the field, confident blocking in the open field and running crossing routes in ahort and intermediate range. Has great explosion and leap, lacks a bit of short area quickness. CFA He was a basketball player and the athleticism is quite evident. Might be a development and will need a year to adapt his body and keep on learning the game to then be ready. He could be a huge red zone target and a 3rd down receiver.
Taiwan Johnson DE Arkansas rSr 6’2” 275 CFA Lacks a bit of size to play DT in the NFL, looks to be better suited to play DE in the 3-4 defense. There too may lack height. Powerful dlineman, that has some quickness and explosion. 6th – 7th Underestimated, can pressure and get to the QB, quite stout against the run. Versatile. Will need to develop a bit his game with more technique but after get used at NFL speed he could become a very good rotational player.
Monty Nelson DT North Carolina State Sr 6’2” 311 CFA Nose Tackle that lacks athletic skills but has a lots of power to push Olinemen when one to one with them and can anchor well enough in the run game with Olinemen pulling.  Lacks quickness and exposion to be a interior pass rusher. CFA Maybe a bit limited in versatlity but able to push the C back in passing situationa nd anchor quite well closing running lane in the run game. A NT that does not habve mammoth size but can be develped in to being a serviceable rotational player.
Joe Scelfo C NC State rSr 6’0” 293 CFA Transfer from Alabama. He lacks size, will need to bulk up. Powerful Olineman that is able to get hands on the NT and pull him away or keep him from busting running lanes. Strong and physical. Able to run and looks not in total disconfot at it. Lacks some athletic skills but more of a power blocker. In pass protection struggle a bit with his lack of size, but is still able to hold on to the NT bullrushing him enough time to allow the QB to scramble away or to deliver the ball. 6th – 7th I think he’s completely flying under the radar. If he’d be 2 inches taller he migh be considered a 3rd or 4th round pick. He could put on 10 pounds more and be even more powerful. Athletic skills is not his best suit, he’ll have to learn how to play being a bit undersized but if he’ll put in the work he could become at least one of the best backup inside Olineman for power blocking schemes.
Nehemiah Mitchell DE Vanderbilt 6’4” 261 CFA
Andrew Jelks OG Vanderbilt rSr 6’6” 309 CFA
Thomas Sperbeck WR Boise State Sr 5’11” 187 CFA
Travis Averill OG Boise State rSr 6’3” 304 CFA
Mario Yakoo OG Boise State rSr 6’4” 314 CFA
Eddie Gordon C Louisiana Lf rSr 6’1” 310 CFA
Brad Seaton OT Villanova Sr 6’9” 329 CFA
Khalfani Muhammad RB California Sr 5’07” 170 CFA Small type of back, played kick returner in college and shows great speed and vision as a kick returner, able to see returning corridors and hitting them hard. In the offense he lacks the size to be a succesful RB but catch the ball well enough and can be moved around the field as WR too at the LOS. 7th – CFA I think he could be a good addition in the returning game and could provide versatility to the offense too. Woodhead is not much taller but off course is much bigger than Mahmmad. He will have to become stronger in order to be able to absorb NFL hits. If he’d be able to do that he could have a chance to make it into the NFL.
Breon Borders CB Duke
Rashaad Coward DT Old Dominion Sr 6’5” 322 CFA Huge Dlineman that has a wide frame and could add some weight too. Very athletic for his size, powerful and with some short area quickness. Has quite good pursue for his size. 5th – 6th The Broncos had a private meeting with him. I think he’s quite underrated, from his videos he could very well be a mid round pick. He played at a lower level of competition and is not a work out worrior but has an incredible lean fram for his size. May have to develop his game a vit but could be immediately put in some package to play against the run.
Chris Muller OG Rutgers
Jamal Carter Sr SS Miami
Jerrol Williams ILB Hawaii
Cameron Hunt OT Oregon Sr 6’4” 307 CFA Has good size, and good power in the running game. Able to position very well his shoulder to not let the defender grab his chest. Really powerful in the running game able to reach the LBs level and be a mauler there with all his size. CFA Interesting developmental prospect that will need some time to get used to NFL power and speed but has some technique that might help him develop nicely at least as a backup Inside Olineman.
Jacob Hollister TE Wyoming Sr 6’4” 239 7th – CFA Lacks a bit of size to be a ideal inline TE in the NFL. Has some good athleticisma and he’s smooth running. Lacks elite speed and explosion. Blocks some at he LOS and can block in the open field. CFA He might be brought to training camp to compete. Will need to get bigger and stronger and gey use to the power and speed of the NFL. Might spent his first year in the practice squad but has the potential to become a complete TE in the NFL.
Tanner Gentry WR Wyoming Sr 6’1” 208 CFA Has average size but very goos athletic skills. Can make very good catches. Lacks a bit of game speed to get open easily. Can block some in open field. Will have to get bigger and stronger. CFA He’s a local prospect that the Broncos might want to brong to training camp and check if he can develop his body and his game to be ready to play in the NFL. May have to spend one year in practice squad.
Andrew Eide OT Brigham Young rSr 6’5” 302 6th – 7th Has good size as OT but might be better suited to play OG in the NFL. Played Oline only his final year at BYU after transferring form Southern Utah, where he played Dlineman. Really powerful and explosive is still learning the osition and played LT at BYU. He’s able to held bullrushes and has more problems with quick rushers in the passing game. In the rn game is able to move away his opponent. Has inconsistency due to the relative inexperience at the position. 5th – 6th project very well at power G in the NFL. Might need one year of learning and development but the potential is quite good and since the results of his one year at BYU he could become a very good OG in the NFL for a power blcoking team.
Leo Koloamatangi C Hawaii rSr 6’4” 298 CFA Has goods height for an inside Olineman, a bit underweight but shows very good strenght and power. Able to impose himself at he LOS he has good balance.Aggressive when pulling the Dlineman in the running game, looks ok, not great, running around at the LOS. Lacks elite athleticism and lateral quickness. Has good awareness. 6th Does really a good job in pass protection, showing some good athleticism for a 6’4” inside Olineman. Also very powerful. Will neeed to get bigger and get used to NFL speed but could bring some versatility at C and OG. I think he’s underrated and could be a good addition to the Broncos in he later rounds. Might need a year of practice aquad to get his body ready to play.
Marcus Kemp WR Hawaii Sr 6’3” 200 CFA Very goos size and athleticism. Has some very good speed for a guy of his size and a very good body balance too. Not the greatest routes runner. CFA Has great size and could be brought to training camp to see what he can do with the ball in his hands. Also can he block a bit more consistently and play in screens? Worth to check because he coudl be a special depth behind DT.
Stanley Williams RB Kentucky Jr 5’7” 190 CFA Smaller type of RB, short but thick, with some speed and great balance. Able to place some blocks and to catch the ball out of the backfield too. No He coudl be be brought to training camp because he can play in all three downs. He’ll have to become a better blocker. Meawhole he could compete for kick returner
Lee Cameron OG Illinois State Sr 6’5” 312 7th – CFA Has great size and an athletic frame that would allow him to add some weight. Lacks a bit of balance and has some good power. A bit raw. Can pull well in the run protection, struggle a bit more in pass protection, especially with speed and quick inside rusher. Has the size and body type to become also a RT. CFA He may be brought to cam if the coaches think that he culd be debveloped into a versatile Olineman.
Quincy Adeboyejo WR Ole Miss Sr 6’3” 197 7th – CFA Has big size and runs very smooth. Quick and fast used more in outside throws. Has good acceleration but had some drops issue. CFA Could be brough to training camp to see what he could bring to the team: his quickness and fast first steps could be interesting for OC McCoy in some package. He will have to make a better job blcoking and earn a roster or practice squad spot by playing special teams.
