Gut Reaction: Broncos draft Corey Nelson with pick #242

If Corey Nelson hadn't partially torn his pectoral muscle early last year, he would have gone higher in today's draft.

If the NCAA hadn't denied him a fifth year of eligibility, he would have gone higher next year. If he was a little larger and a little taller--well, you get the drift.

But none of that happened. The super-athletic linebacker is now the property of the Denver Broncos.

Broncos select Oklahoma linebacker Corey Nelson at #242

With the seventh-round pick they acquired from San Francisco in the trade up for Cody Latimer, the Broncos drafted Oklahoma linebacker Corey Nelson.

The 6-0, 231-pounder played in 45 games (27 starts) before a partially torn pectoral muscle cut short his senior season last October.

Gut Reaction: Broncos draft Matt Paradis with pick #207

At this stage in the draft, you're looking to find depth anywhere you can get it.

The Broncos' selelction of Matt Paradis isn't going to blow you away. He wasn't even the best center in a below average conference (Mountain West).

His size is suspect to be on the interior of the line; he's not particularly quick or fast; his reach is also not great.

Broncos select BSU center Matt Paradis at #207

With the 31st pick in the sixth-round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Broncos chose Boise State center Matt Paradis.

Denver hosted the 6-3, 306-pounder in early April.

His 4.46-second 20-yard shuttle time was fifth best among linemen at the combine.

Gut Reaction: Broncos draft Lamin Barrow with pick #156

I'm trying not to view this pick in light of the fact that the Broncos wanted C.J. Mosley and were willing to trade up to get him.

So given the context of the pick, getting an above average inside linebacker from the best conference in America ain't too shabby.

Apparently, the Broncos would have taken him with pick #131, but wanted to trade down and get some value with the hopes Barrow would still be there.

Mission accomplished.

Broncos select LSU linebacker Lamin Barrow at #156

With the #156 overall pick, acquired from Chicago earlier in the day, the Broncos have selected LSU linebacker Lamin Barrow.

The 6-1, 237-pound fifth year senior led the Tigers with 91 tackles in 2013 and was named Second Team All-SEC.

His 4.64-second forty time was a distant third best among linebackers at the combine, and his 123-inch broad jump a distant fourth best.

Broncos trade down from #131, out of fourth round

Did you just spend the past two hours patiently waiting for the Broncos to pick at #131?

If so, the response from John Elway & Co. is something like, Hey, what's another hour?

Denver has traded out of the fourth round entirely, sending #131 to Chicago.
