Saw the combine, I rate Fairley and Dareus very high. I wasn’t too impressed with Richard Quinn, Von Miller looked OK.

I cannot believe the incredible displays of porous logic surrounding Broncos mock drafts around the blogosphere.

Patrick Peterson? You’re kidding, right?

I don’t know how a person watches this Broncos team and comes away thinking we should be the first team in history to draft a cornerback with the second pick in the draft.

I don’t know how you do it.

I’m writing down names, I sense an incredulity on a level hitherto never before seen. They must be in love with this cornerback.

I don’t really care though, because I’m confident that Fox and friends will do the right thing. I am confident the Broncos will address the defensive front seven with the second pick in the draft.

What I will do, I will now educate the masses that feel we must tie up millions upon millions of dollars in not one, but two shut down corners.

We have a shutdown corner, that’s more than most teams can say. We don’t have a defensive line.

I want these people, these Patrick Peterson bandwagoners, I want them to name our defensive linemen.

Name them.

1. Elvis Dumervil —  Dumervil is a good pass rusher, but you can also make the case that he is a liability against the run.

2. Justin Bannan — Bannan is solid, has a good motor. A starter, yet largely unspectacular.

3. Marcus Thomas — Are we going to even sign this guy? How long have we waited for Thomas to take the “next step.” Too long.

4. Ronald Fields — Thanks for your service Ronald, you were a semblance of a nose tackle when we needed one.

5. Kevin Vickerson — This guy is probably gone. He was OK at times. At times. A part time starter.

6. Jamal Williams — He’ll probably retire. Will we even miss him?

7. Robert Ayers — Ayers is a maybe. He’s a decent run stopper, maybe he comes around and can rush the passer some too… maybe. I am sick and tired of waiting around for maybe’s. You confident he will “be the player we expected him to be” in a 4-3? I’m not. I’ve had enough of this waiting around to see if a defensive lineman can do something.

The others don’t deserve mention. I suppose these Patrick Peterson fans can’t wait for us to start Ryan McBean again this season? Eh? Is that what you people want? Is that your master plan?

It stinks. So does our front seven on defense. As a whole unit, they stink.

Was watching NFL Network earlier, Deion Sanders, Mayock, Wilcotts all said it: You don’t draft a cornerback that high. Deion himself stated it will probably never happen. He said a cornerback will have to have twice the value of a defensive lineman in order to pick one that high.

This Denver Broncos team needs an infusion of talent, toughness and youth in the defensive front seven. This draft will have a couple potential franchise defensive linemen sitting right there at the second pick… The Broncos are going to pass up that opportunity?

You people stuck on drafting a corner are sick. You are. I’m telling you this for your own good. Listen to the voice of reason. Listen to the truth. I am the truth. The Broncos will address their woeful front seven by picking a potential franchise defensive lineman. A young, talented franchise lineman who could help us win games for a decade.

You win games, you win championships with big, tough, mean, talented players at the point of attack. Big, talented players capable of great destruction playing like mad at the tip of the spear. The Packers had B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, Cullen Jenkins…

The Denver Broncos defensive spear has been dull for the better part of a decade. Even with Elvis Dumervil. One man can only do so much.

Schlereth, Zimmerman, Neil Smith, Keith Traylor, Alfred Williams… all players who wreaked havoc at the point of attack.

Hell, even Jumpy Geathers would be a welcome upgrade to our defensive line. That ain’t no joke either. He would be a star on our woeful defensive line.

We re-signed Champ Bailey, we have an amazing need for defensive front seven help, this draft has a couple potential franchise defensive lineman and you mean to tell me we’re going to draft a cornerback with that first round pick?


You’ve got to be kidding.
