No one is talking much about Denver, but you could argue that they had one of the best five or six drafts considering where they were picking. There are degrees of difficulty when picking at No. 28, and Williams fell into their laps at that spot. He adds depth to a group that wasn’t as bad as everyone thought in 2012 (the team was No. 3 against the run). Williams should be an upgrade over Kevin Vickerson, and fellow 2013 pick Quanterus Smith is a close second on this list. Smith was a risk because of his durability, but Smith had three sacks against Alabama and its highly touted offensive line, so we know he can bend the edge.
Like Bucky Brooks, Todd McShay is a big fan of what Denver accomplished last weekend; the harshest thing he comes up with is that Vinston Painter is a talented player.
