In my opinion the first round is where you find players you expect to start and make an impact immediately, in rounds 2-3 is where you hope to find guys who can start about 1-3 years in the future, round four and five is where you either draft the best player available or where you find your depth and rounds six and seven are where you should go for exclusively special teams players, guys who are either good football players or freakish athletes but have something they are missing that causes them to drop in the draft.
|1st (28th)||MLB||Kevin Minter||LSU||rJr||6'0 3/4"||245 lbs.||4.64|
Analysis: Denver shores up the gaping hole at Middle linebacker with this pick. Minter would get to start as a rookie while learning from Keith Brooking.
|2nd (8th)||CB||Blidi Wreh-Wilson||Connecticut||Sr||6'0 5/8"||192 lbs.||4.52|
Analysis: Denver trades D.J Williams and a third round pick to the Bills for this pick which they use on Baileys future replacement. Wreh-Wilson would give Denver a very formidable secondary with Bailey, Harris, Wreh-Wilson, Tony Carter and Omar Bolden. Wreh-Wilson is built very similarly to Bailey in that he is long an quick and rarely gets beat.
|2nd (28th)||43DE||Tank Carradine||Florida St.||Sr||6'4 5/8"||265 lbs.||4.75|
Analysis: If Denver resigns either Vickerson or Bannan then they will not need a DT in this draft, last offseason Jason Hunter was named the starter at LDE but tore his tricep during camp at which point Derek Wolfe moved outside to LDE with Hunter coming back and drafting Carradine Denver could move Wolfe back to the inside where he can start next to either Bannan or Vickerson. Carradine could also become a serious part of the D-Line rotation because as the NY Giants have proven you can never have to many DEs. Also Hunter will be 30 come the start of next season and coming off a major injury can't be fully relied upon leaving more room for Carradine.
|4th (28th)||OC||Khaled Holmes||USC||rSr||6'3 1/4"||310 lbs.||5.17|
Analysis: Holmes is the third ranked center in the draft behind Travis Frederick and Barret Jones and because the position is not valued very highly could fall to the fourth round. Holmes would be perfect for Denver because he possesses a high football IQ and Dan Koppen is going to be 34 next season and nearing the end of his career which leaves an opening at center where Holmes could learn for a year or two and then take over when Koppen retires.
|5th (28th)||WR||Josh Boyce||Texas Christian||rJr||5'11 1/8"||203 lbs.||4.54|
Analysis: Josh Boyce would be Brandon Stokley's eventual replacement. Boyce can run solid routes and has very good ball skills, given a year or two to learn could make him a very dangerous slot receiver.
|6th (28th)||OG||Blaize Foltz||Texas Christian||rSr||6'3 3/4"||310 lbs.||5.32|
Analysis: Denvers lack of depth on the interior O-Line was evident when Kuper was out with injuries and Manny Ramirez was starting in his place, Foltz would be an immediate replacement who could back up both guard positions. He also appears to have the length and athletic ability to possible swing outside and backup Franklin at Right Tackle as well.
|7th (28th)||CB||Brodrick Brown||Oklahoma St.||rSr||5'7 3/4"||185 lbs.||4.45|
Analysis: Brown would mostly be brought on as a scrappy player who can make a living playing on punt and kick coverage teams.

|I like the picks and logic of most of it. Especially the Carradine, Holmes and Brown picks. Not a big fan of Wreh-Wilson though but mostly a preference thing on the player. Great draft logic.|
