Per Silver and Black Pride, Stanford running back Tyler Gaffney says he's visited with the Broncos, Raiders, and 49ers, among other teams.
The 5-11, 220-pounder gained 1,795 yards from scrimmage and scored 22 touchdowns as a senior in 2013.
Happy Friday, friends. As promised, here’s my look at the defensive position groupings for the 2014 Draft. This class is strong at cornerback and interior defensive line, and it’s weak at linebacker, edge rusher, and safety.
Don’t be surprised if guys are over-drafted at those positions, because of the shortage there.
After the jump, we’ll get into the nitty-gritty of things. Ready… BEGIN!!
Happy Thursday, friends. Somehow, some way, I’ve found a few minutes to think (and write) about the upcoming NFL Draft, which starts a week from today. I thought I’d share some thoughts on a few players in each position group, and that I’d split that into two articles. Today, you get a serving of offense, and schedule willing, tomorrow, I should have some defense for you.
I find the Broncos to be in excellent shape, in terms of the overall roster construction, and that there’s minimal need to worry about “needs” right now. A case could be made about drafting for need for seasons following 2014, but I think a best player available approach is the way to go right now. Particularly, I hope the Broncos are focused on maximizing value.
Anyway, let’s get started, on the other side of the jump. Ready…BEGIN!!
According to Jeff Legwold, the Broncos hosted Louisville linebacker Preston Brown in recent weeks.
The 6-1, 251-pounder posted slow 40 times of 4.86 seconds at combine and 4.79 seconds at the Cards' pro day.
The Broncos are reportedly hosting Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley today and tomorrow.
Late in February, Cecil Lammey reported the team was interested in the Tide's leading tackler, even suggesting they would consider trading up for him.
According to Mike Klis, the Broncos hosted Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier at Dove Valley on Tuesday.
Contrary to Klis's report, Shazier did not run the forty at the combine, but his 4.38-second time at OSU's pro day was faster than any linebacker ran in Indy.
The 6-3, 273-pounder racked up 22.5 sacks in three years for the Beavers, and ran the fourth fastest 20-yard shuttle among defensive linemen at the combine.
According to Aaron Wilson, the Broncos recently visited with Boise State lineman Matt Paradis.
The 6-3, 306-pound center was a Second-Team All-MWC choice last year, and has worked out for the Patriots.
According to Gil Brandt, Denver and Miami have private workouts scheduled with Ole Miss wide receiver Donte Moncrief next week.
The 6-2, 221-pound junior ran a 4.40-second forty at the combine, posted a 39.5-inch vertical, and a 132-inch broad jump. The former two figures each tied for third among wideouts, while the latter tied for the longest.
The 6-5, 200-pound senior was a reserve for the Canes, and it's not clear whether he played even high school football.
