Report: Broncos to host Kyle Fuller

According to Aaron Wilson, Virginia Tech corner Kyle Fuller is scheduled to take an official pre-draft visit with the Broncos.

Wilson reports that Fuller has at least four other visits (Oakland, Chicago, Cincy, Jets) lined up, plus two private workouts (Indy, Carolina).

Broncos send ST coach to North Texas pro day

According to Gil Brandt, the Broncos were represented by a special teams coach (presumably either Jeff Rodgers or Derius Swinton) at Wednesday's North Texas pro day.

While we can't be sure that their purpose was to see wideout Brelan Chancellor, it would seem a good bet, given what Brandt writes about him:

NFL awards comp picks; none for Broncos

The NFL announced 32 compensatory picks on Tuesday, with the Jets and Ravens each awarded four choices.

No AFCW squads received any extra picks, which go to teams calculated to have had net free agency losses from the prior offseason.

Sam “circus” vs. Tebow CIRCUS

Happy Tuesday, friends.  We've predictably seen some early commentary about distractions, vis-a-vis Michael Sam joining an NFL football team. We've also seen it compared to the Tim Tebow effect, but having lived through that era, I'm going to say that there's no comparison.

Sam will surely draw some extra media attention, but it won't be a lasting story.

As I heard Rich Gannon say on the radio the other day, once the media has asked Sam's 52 teammates how they feel about having a gay teammate, there's no more story to be had. Everybody can just forget about it, at that point, and get on with the business of playing football. Then, the guy will either be a good player, or not, but he'll have a chance to prove himself based on his play.

Broncos will pick 31st in each round of 2014 Draft

Following their embarrassing loss in SB 48, the Broncos will pick 31st in each round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

For the first time since we can recall, Denver heads into the offseason with a full complement of picks. In fact, the Broncos have not (yet) dealt away any of their future picks.

And after a 2013 Draft that provided very little impact in year one, perhaps they'll even use one of those picks to find a better option than Paris Lenon or Keith Brooking at middle linebacker?

Greg Cosell on Denver’s 2013 draft picks

Anyone who's been reading this site for very long should know we're all big fans of the work done by Doug Farrar at Shutdown Corner, and by Greg Cosell at NFL Films. Cosell, in particular, is quite the film junkie, so his opinions tend to carry more weight with us than do those of most NFL analysts.

Over the past month or so, Farrar and Cosell have been devoting their podcasts to draft reviews; today, they're covering the AFCW teams.

Normally, we'd just write a line or two and recommend you listen to the podcast, but there's enough useful information that we've transcribed all of what we thought were Cosell's salient points regarding Denver's 2013 draftees. Here's what Cosell had to say, plus a few stray comments from Farrar:

The Broncos’ 2013 draft class from the Dallas perspective

The Cowboys under Jerry Jones haven't exactly been praised for their recent draft classes, especially their most recent one.

If there is one thing that Jones & Co. are good at when it comes to the draft, though, it's sharing their entire board with the public.

For the second time in four years, Jerrah gave an interview in front of Dallas's draft board, and the Blogging the Boys guys have done the yeomanlike work of reconstructing the whole thing from screenshots for the rest of us to enjoy.

We shouldn't assume this was accidental on the Cowboys' part, because according to their board, they did a stellar job in April, nabbing six players with third-round grades or better in the first five rounds.

Of more interest to us, though, is what they thought of the players taken by Denver. Let's take a peek:

Broncos wrap up rookie minicamp, will add two players, release Rippy

Denver completed its rookie minicamp Sunday; here's video of John Fox speaking after practice, and Chris Hall reporting for BTV.

For the coaching staff, it was their first on-field look at the Broncos' draftees and undrafted free agent signings, along with a trio of players invited for an extended tryout.

According to Mike Klis, two of those invitees were impressive enough that they will be signed - CSU DE Lanston Tanyi, and UCLA LB Damien Holmes.
