2018 NFL mock draft has Broncos selecting DL Vita Vea

2018 NFL mock draft has Broncos selecting DL Vita Vea

Luke Easterling of Draft Wire published a new 2018 NFL mock draft Monday and he has the Denver Broncos selecting Washington defensive lineman Vita Vea in the first round, 21st overall. Here’s Easterling’s reasoning for the selection: Von Miller will keep wreaking havoc on opposing quarterbacks off the edge, but the Broncos need a massive space-eater in the middle to shut down running lanes and collapse the pocket from the inside. Vea is a 6-5, 344-pound monster who would do just that. Vea recorded 35 tackles and six sacks through his first three years at Washington and he has recorded...

Broncos lead the NFL with 318 rushing yards entering Week 3

Through two weeks of play, the Denver Broncos have the best rushing attack in the NFL. The Broncos rank first in rushing yards per game (159) and they are tied with the New England Patriots with 18 first downs on rushing plays. Denver has been led by C.J. Anderson, whose 199 rushing yards trail only Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, who has 229 yards on the ground. Anderson has averaged 4.4 yards per carry and the Broncos aren’t overloading him, mixing Jamaal Charles into the workload. Charles has 19 carries for 86 yards through two weeks, averaging 4.5 yards per tote....

Von Miller moves into 3rd place on Broncos' all-time sack list

Von Miller moves into 3rd place on Broncos' all-time sack list

Broncos linebacker Von Miller already has a Super Bowl ring and a Most Valuable Player award under his belt, but his accomplishments are far from over. Miller moved into third place on Denver’s all-time sack list in Week 2 when he sacked Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott twice. Miller now owns 75.5 career sacks, passing Barney Chavous (75.0) and Rulon Jones (73.5). It’s a great accomplishment, but Miller’s not dwelling on it. “I still have a long way to go,” Miller said after a 42-17 win Sunday. “Sacks are good, you just can’t be worried about that type of stuff. You can’t...

Broncos list Ahtyba Rubin as a defensive end on updated depth chart

Ahtyba Rubin was inactive Sunday after signing with the Broncos two days before their thrashing of the Cowboys in Week 2. After a full week of practice, Rubin seems poised to make his debut against the Bills in Week 3. Rubin (6-2, 310 pounds) is officially listed as a backup defensive end behind Adam Gotsis on the team’s updated depth chart this week. He may move around on the defensive line, but Rubin, who was a defensive tackle with the Seahawks, won’t be considered a nose tackle in Joe Woods’ 3-4 unit. With Jared Crick on injured reserve, Gotsis and Shelby Harris have stepped up at...

Poll: Should the Broncos bench Menelik Watson?

Poll: Should the Broncos bench Menelik Watson?

There’s a leak in the wall that should be the Denver Broncos’ offensive line, a Menelik. Through only two games, Menelik Watson has already allowed six sacks of Trevor Siemian from that right tackle position. Which, as Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus points out, only 12 tackles allowed more than that in the entire 2016 season. Menelik Watson has already allowed 6 sacks. Only 12 OTs allowed more than that all of last season. — Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) September 18, 2017 Notably from the 42-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys was Watson allowing Demarcus Lawrence to dive inside on him, and he...

Takeaways from the Chargers-Dolphins Debacle

First things first, that was a terrible loss. The Dolphins are not a good team. They had no business winning that game. 2 missed field goals weren’t the only things that cost the Chargers. Players just weren’t making plays. Last year for Casey Hayward, this is an interception. Wow. #FinsUp pic.twitter.com/BJXE072ebG— NFL (@NFL) September 17, 2017 To open the drive, you would’ve thought it would be a long day for the defense.

Joel Thorman from Arrowhead Pride joins John Gennaro to talk about the Kansas City Chiefs’ hot start and their game this Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers. It’s a little early in the week for a game preview, but let us all forget about what a disaster Sunday’s Los Angeles Chargers’ loss to the Miami Dolphins was and move along to the impending doom of the Kansas City Chiefs, who come into town with a 2-0 record and are thought to be the hottest team in this young NFL season.

Former Raiders OT Menelik Watson is... um... struggling in Denver

Former Raiders OT Menelik Watson is... um... struggling in Denver

Usually when you see a player cash in on the free agent market despite a small sample size, it’s a backup quarterback. They can benefit greatly from seeing little time on the field and excelling in spot duty (see: Flynn, Matthew). But sometimes it works for other positions too. That appears to be the case with Menelik Watson. The former second round tackle started just 17 games over four seasons in Oakland. Injuries had him miss most of his rookie season in 2013, all of the 2015 season, and he never played a full season. The result was this offseason when he became a free agent, he still...

Zach Brown had free agent visit to Oakland this offseason, now in Washington daring Raiders to ‘put the ball in the air’

The Raiders head to Washington Sunday to face their week three opponent. The linebacker for said opponent is one Zach Brown and he seems pretty confident in his team’s ability to defend the pass, telling NFL Network’s Good Morning Football “We’re daring you to put the ball in the air.” #Redskins LB Zach Brown on @gmfb on defense: "We're daring you to put the ball in the air."— Will Selva (@WillSelvaTV) September 19, 2017 It’s an interesting dare for a team whose pass defense is ranked 26th in the league giving up 269 yards per game. It’s also interesting Brown would say...

NFL standings: Broncos are No. 1 in the NFL entering Week 3

After two weeks of play, the Denver Broncos are currently ranked No. 1 in the AFC West, No. 1 in the AFC conference and No. 1 in the entire NFL. The Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders are also 2-0 but the Broncos have a division win over the Los Angeles Chargers that gives them a tiebreaker lead. In the AFC, Denver ranks above the Pittsburgh Steelers with a plus-28 point differential (the Steelers are plus-20). Overall, the Broncos also rank above the Detroit Lions (plus-26) and Atlanta Falcons (plus-17) for the top spot. In the 2017 NFL season ending today, Denver would be the No. 1...

NFL.com week three power rankings: Raiders leapfrog Patriots, AFC West dominant

NFL.com week three power rankings: Raiders leapfrog Patriots, AFC West dominant

So, let me get this straight. The Raiders week one win wasn’t enough to put them ahead of the Patriots who were roasted in the season opener to the Chiefs, but their week 2 win over the Jets was? Okeedokee. The new power rankings are out over at NFL.com and they look a bit more accurate than after week one. This version has the Chiefs atop the rankings, which is probably where they belong at this point. And right behind them is the Raiders, followed by the Patriots. After week one it was the Packers who had the top spot, which looked more like a default ranking based on the Patriots...

Unlike the Patriots, the Eagles threw right at Chiefs CB Marcus Peters

Unlike the Patriots, the Eagles threw right at Chiefs CB Marcus Peters

Tom Brady and the Patriots avoided throwing at Chiefs CB Marcus Peters so since they’re Brady and the Patriots I just assumed that the Eagles would follow suit and QB Carson Wentz would not throw in Peters’ direction. I was wrong. The Eagles not only threw at Peters, they threw at him a lot. Pro Football Focus tracked it at eight attempts in Peters direction. Of those eight throws, six were caught for 71 yards. PFF notes that Peters allowed more than 71 yards in just three games last year. Many of you will point to his off coverage, which he often plays. That means he’s playing...

Chief in the North podcast: When will Travis Kelce cost the Chiefs?

In Episode 12 of the Chief in the North (iTunes link here), I tackle the Chiefs-Eagles game after a quick re-watch looking at certain players. There's a lot to talk about, with an overall theme of the Chiefs sending a message to the NFL for the second week in a row, this time beating a tough, physical defense and a quarterback who played a really good game under pressure. Despite the Eagles presenting a very different matchup than the Pats, the Chiefs were able to walk away winners for the second week in a row against a good team. That's a big deal. For individual topics, I discuss how I...

Kareem Hunt is getting a ton of attenetion. The Kansas City Chiefs RB has been on the cover of SI already and ESPN’s Adam Schefter said he has been the best player in football so far this season. That’s quite a bit of praise. So much that you wonder how Kareem Hunt is going to handle it. Well, the Chiefs don’t seem to be too concerned about how he’ll handle all of this attention. Chiefs coach Andy Reid was asked on Monday about whether he’s concerned about Hunt handling all the attention and his answer made it clear how faith he has in the Chiefs RB coach Eric Bieniemy....

Eagles fan’s note praises Chiefs and Arrowhead (and takes a shot at the Cowboys)

An Eagles fan posted a note on the Chiefs reddit page about the great time he had at Arrowhead Stadium. Since we usually hear about someone getting in a fight or doing something stupid when they’re drop dead drunk at Arrowhead, I figured this would be a good reminder that most people have a great time at Chiefs games. The fan wrote this about Arrowhead, and also got a shot in on the Cowboys. Sunday was my very first NFL game and I've been a lifelong Eagles fan. Going in I was a little nervous about being a visiting fan in such an intimidating environment but it was amazing! There was a...
