» Jones: John Elway has plenty to consider entering Broncos' free agency

Feb 27, 2015 - 5:10 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
In the four years since John Elway took over the Denver Broncos front office, he's earned the title King of March.

As general manager, Elway has attacked free agency much in the same manner he did an opposing defense when he was a player: He's fearless, sometimes bordering on reckless, but he often wins big.

His all-in gamble three years ago to lure Peyton Manning to sign with the Broncos was his front-office version of his legendary head-first helicopter spin.

Now for the first time in his tenure atop the Broncos' front office, the most significant free agent moves for Elway could be the ones he doesn't make.

» The Case for 28- Jake Fisher

Feb 26, 2015 - 5:15 AM - by Ziggy

Next up is OT Jake Fisher. You won't see him listed in the first round in too many mocks, but he's one of my favorite players in this draft. I think that we might look back 4 years from now and see that Jake Fisher was the best tackle of the bunch. The former high school tight end was converted to tackle his freshman season at Oregon. He spent his first 3 years playing right tackle, and was moved to the left side for his senior year. Fisher has the frame to add 10-15 more pounds for the pro game, but his strength was run blocking in his time at Oregon. He plays with a high motor and nasty disposition. His athletic ability is unquestioned.

Fisher blew up the combine. He measured 6'6 306, with an 82 inch wingspan. The 20 yard short shuttle is probably the best predictor of future success for offensive lineman. Jake had the 3rd best 20 yard short shuttle time for an offensive lineman in the last 15 years. He had the best 3 cone time among all offensive lineman, he tied for the 2nd best 10 yard split, had a 32.5 inch vertical jump, and posted the 2nd fastest 40 time. Keep in mind, this is all at 306. Fisher played his senior season at 299. I'd love to see this kid in Kubiak's zone blocking scheme.

How important was he to his offensive line? In the 13 games in which he played, the Ducks allowed 19 sacks. In the 2 games he missed, they allowed 12. His offensive line coach compares him to his former teammate who he also coached, Kyle Long. Long was drafted 2 years ago by the Bears and has made the pro bowl both seasons.

» Peyton Manning, Broncos working on revising contract

Feb 25, 2015 - 7:59 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Broncos and representatives for Peyton Manning have been working on revising the quarterback's contract, according to multiple NFL sources.

Manning is scheduled to draw a $19 million salary in 2015 and 2016 — down from the $20 million he made in both the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

Restructured contracts can get complicated, which could explain why there's been a perceived delay in Manning formally announcing his intention to return to play in 2015.

» NT Post Combine Draft

Feb 25, 2015 - 2:42 PM - by NightTerror218
First off I think Franklin, Moore, and Green are resigned. I know burn me for saying Moore's name but FS class is weak this year. Keep Franklin at G. Green is perfect dor kubiak system.

#28- Cameron Irving- C FSU
dude found his sweet spot when moved to C and was outstansing. Several NFL talking heads project him as pro bowl potential center (all BS but shows possible high ceiling)

#60 Eric Kendricks- ILB UCLA
Great instincts, thumped in middle. Need one with possible departure of Irving and Travathan injury issues.

#92 Jake Fisher. - OT Oregon
He is moving up boards with great combine. Conaidered a great ZBS RT.

4th comp pick - Kurtis Drummond FS MSU
Depth depth and more depth at FS. Push Moore for atarting position.

#156- Jalston Fowler- FB BAMA
Had a good combine might be out of reach here. But getting a real FB who can also run ball with good hands can help us.

#188- Blake Bell- TE OSU
He is moving up boards but is my sleeper pick for some TE depth. If he is not signed I would resign Tamme.

6th round comp pick- Damian Swann CB UGA

Can never have too many CBs. Kick Carter to the curb. ST help.

7th round comp- Trey DePreist ILB Bama

More depth at ILB and ST help.

» 5 Hidden Gems the Denver Broncos Should Have Noticed at the Combine

Feb 24, 2015 - 9:26 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
By Cecil Lammey , Featured Columnist Feb 24, 2015

The 2015 NFL Scouting Combine has wrapped up, and the Denver Broncos are getting a clearer picture of what their draft board will look like. They will be looking for college stars from big programs who could be solid picks early in the draft.

The Broncos will also be looking for under-the-radar prospects who came from small schools or had limited playing time during their college careers.

Denver has a proven track record of finding gems each year as late-round picks or undrafted free agents. Cornerback Chris Harris became a star for the Broncos—and one of the best cornerbacks in the game today—and he was an undrafted free agent out of Kansas in 2011.

» The Case for 28- Maxx Williams

Feb 24, 2015 - 2:17 AM - by Ziggy

Next up is TE Max Williams. Williams is the #1 rated tight end in the draft. The Gophers lined him up all over the field. He was used in the backfield as a lead blocker, came across the set in motion, and lined up off tackle, in the slot and outside. Even though he played in a poor passing offense, Williams led all college tight ends with 9 catches of over 25 yards in 2014. His numbers won't wow you, but that's more reflective of the offense he played in than his talent. 82% of his catches were either for a first down or a touchdown. Williams isn't a speed burner by any means, but he's a solid all around tight end. He's a decent, willing blocker. It's his hands that set him apart from other tight ends. He attacks the ball in the air and catches everything with his hands. He doesn't let the ball into his body. Williams makes highlight grabs, and fights for every yard once it's secured.

Kubiak loves his tight ends, and the Broncos desperately need a guy who can contribute immediately. Williams would be an instant starter with JT leaving, and gives Denver a guy that can stay on the field on every down. This is another prospect that will probably be available at 28, but definitely won't be there in the 2nd.

» The Case for 28- Cameron Erving

Feb 24, 2015 - 1:04 AM - by Ziggy
OK, it's down time between now and free agency, so I'm starting my own series here just to kill time and get some discussions going. I'm going to profile some prospects who have a decent shot at being available at 28, and make the case for drafting them.

First up is Cameron Erving. He's the most talented lineman in the draft that can play any position on the offensive line. Erving played defensive tackle his freshman season. After an injury he was red-shirted for the season. He had 13 tackles at that position in 2011. In 2012, he converted to offensive line and played left tackle for the next 2 seasons. He was a 2nd team AP All-American and first team ACC at that position in 2013. In November of 2014 he was moved to center. In his 6 starts at center he only gave up 2 QB hits and did not allow any sacks. Erving did quite a bit of zone blocking at Florida State. He can play any position along the line, but center looks like his best fit in the NFL. He's still learning the position but played quite well there when called upon.

One of the big reasons that most NFL centers play that position because they have short arms and are limited to the inside. Erving has elite size for a center. He's 6'4 1/2, 313 pounds with long (34 1/8") arms and huge (10 3/8") hands. He showed off his agility at the combine with the 3rd best 3 cone drill among all offensive lineman.

Erving is a very talented, versatile lineman that fills an immediate need for the Broncos. He definitely won't be there in the 2nd, and there's a chance that he won't be there at 28. If he's sitting on the board when the Broncos pick, I think Elway takes a long hard look at drafting him. He's already stated that he's going to fix the line in the offseason. I don't know what will happen in free agency. I'm still lobbying for Wiz, but if Elway... [Read More]

» Klis: Broncos have nine positions of need

Feb 22, 2015 - 12:22 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
INDIANAPOLIS — While roaming through the hallways of the NFL scouting combine, hiding behind large plants in the ornate lobbies, I have discovered the Broncos will have to fill six spots on offense.

The positions: left guard, center, right tackle, tight end, slot receiver and fullback.

Whispering while waiting in line at the many hotel Starbucks kiosks here, I also was able to determine the Broncos will have three vacancies on defense.

The positions: two defensive linemen and a safety.

He just posted on his facebook "blessed".

This is a rumor but everyone is saying he got the tag at 13 mill. I am glad he is going to be here another year but I was preferring a long term deal for him. Maybe he did get a LTC and not the tag. I don't know...

Can anyone confirm this?

» Broncos meet with offensive tackles Sambrailo, Poutasi, tight ends Williams, Bell, running backs

Feb 21, 2015 - 2:23 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
INDIANAPOLIS — There is no way to know until at least after free agency which position the Broncos will select with their No. 28 overall pick in the NFL Draft on April 30.

If the Broncos sign, say, Houston Texans right tackle Derek Newton, then the team is less likely to use their first-round draft pick on a tackle.

What is known is the Broncos do have right tackle and tight end high on their list of offseason priorities. At the NFL scouting combine here this week, the Broncos did formally visit with offensive tackle Ty Sambrailo of Colorado State, Utah’s Jeremiah Poutasi and LSU’s La’el Collins.

» 2015 NFL Combine Talk

Feb 21, 2015 - 1:00 AM - by Ziggy
The Underwear Olympics are going on right now, so I thought I'd just start one thread where we could put rumors, results, and thoughts on the prospects here.

This draft is loaded with offensive lineman in the first 2 rounds. Considering the fact that the Broncos are desperate for line help, I've been watching them closely. La'el Collins has firmly vaulted himself into the first round with his showing at the senior bowl and combine. I'm fairly certain he's now out of Denver's reach.

Cameron Erving is the wildcard Olineman in the first round. He showed in college that he can play any position along the line and play it well. He looked good in the drills today and turned in a good 40 time. I still haven't figured out where he goes in the first. I'd love to see him drop to 28. I don't think Elway passes up on a stud lineman that can play guard, tackle, and center.

Maxx Williams is the consensus #1 tight end in the draft, but that doesn't mean he goes in the first. He ran a fairly pedestrian 4.78 40. While he looked great catching the ball, he didn't show the agility or speed to lose defenders at the next level. I think he goes in the 2nd. Jesse James is closing the gap between them. His 6'7 frame is drawing some unfair comparisons to Rob Gronkowski.

OT Ereck Flowers has chosen to represent himself and not hire an agent. Gutsy move. If I'm a GM and I have 2 guys rated the same, I take the one with no agent.

Buff lobbied pretty hard to have a trade for Adrian Peterson thread, so here it is.

Discuss pros and cons....discuss perceived value and compensation.

Also, feel free to go off topic. The license should be there because it will happen.
