2021 NFL Draft profile: North Dakota State OT Dillon Radunz

2021 NFL Draft profile: North Dakota State OT Dillon Radunz

Could Radunz make sense at right tackle? | Photo by Michael Wade/Icon Sportswire via Should the Broncos bring on a Bison to solidify the offensive line? The Broncos spent free agency solving their most pressing need in the secondary, but did little to solidify the depth along the offensive line. While Garett Bolles turned into an All Pro tackle in 2021, the right tackle position remains a rather large question. Since Ja’Wuan James signed as a free agent in 2019 he’s played all of 65 snaps in an orange and blue jersey. Behind him on the depth chart is Calvin...

Should the Broncos chase a quarterback in the NFL Draft?

Should the Broncos chase a quarterback in the NFL Draft?

Photo by Sam Wasson/ I spoke with USA Today’s Mark Schofield to find out. Should George Paton take a quarterback in the NFL Draft? It’s the debate that’s split Broncos Country in two or even three camps and one that feels as if it’s never ending. I’ve shared my own thoughts on the quarterback options here. In an effort to best inform you, dear reader, I also thought it best to reach out to a subject matter expert to pick his brain. Fortunately Mark Schofield agreed to speak with me for Cover2Broncos. Schofield is a former quarterback who’s spent years...

Photo by Andrew Dieb/Icon Sportswire via Who should the Broncos take? There’s 12 days until the opening round of the NFL Draft, which makes this the perfect opportunity to take an early stab at how it should go. What follows is a quick run through with what I’d do running each franchise. I won’t be doing any additional trades because I can’t trust I’m making a deal with rival GMs in good faith. At every opportunity I tried to keep in mind what I believe each team needs while also balancing that against who I see as the best players available. It’s a purely...

2021 Pre-Draft Power Rankings

2021 Pre-Draft Power Rankings

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ What does every team need to chase a Super Bowl? The best teams approach the NFL Draft with their long-term needs in mind. In a best case scenario their rookie class will have a dramatic impact from their first practice, but most need time to acclimate to the drastic jump in competition. Realistically, most of the core contributors to their upcoming season are already on the payroll. With that in mind, I think it’s a good time to take a look at every team in the NFL to try to assess the needs they’ll address in the NFL Draft as well as...

2021 NFL Draft profile: Florida State CB Asante Samuel Jr.

Samuel is one of my guys. Hope the Broncos consider him. | Photo by Joel Auerbach/ Does an All Pro’s son fit the Fangio defense? George Paton spent his first free agency doing what he could to make sure the Broncos cornerback situation is better than he found it. Kyle Fuller and Ronald Darby to go with Bryce Callahan means Fangio will have the best trio of cornerbacks since he became head coach in 2019. Questions remain. Between the two of them, Darby and Callahan have played a complete regular season once since 2015. The depth chart behind them is littered with...

How would you rank the Broncos’ options at 9?

Photo by Alika Jenner/ What should George Paton do if he doesn’t trade in the NFL Draft? After taking a dive at who look like the Broncos’ most realistic options at the ninth overall pick, I spent the weekend ruminating on how I view each prospect. What follows are some thoughts about each. Obviously this is a subjective exercise and I expect we won’t see eye on eye on every option, but I hope to hear where you land on the road ahead for the Broncos. Quarterbacks Mac Jones Justin Fields Trey Lance While we can debate the merits of each individual player until...

2021 NFL Draft profile: Ohio State LB Pete Werner

Is Werner an upgrade on Josey Jewell? | Photo by David Rosenblum/Icon Sportswire via Is the Buckeye an upgrade on the Broncos’ Hawkeye? The Broncos’ off ball linebackers were a reliably solid unit in 2020. Alexander Johnson saw his role expand to take on more blitzing as Fangio adjusted to life without Von Miller. Josey Jewell stepped into the void when Todd Davis was released in September and overperformed expectations. Together with the safeties, the duo served as the most consistent part of the Broncos’ defense as they combined to play more than 1900...

What if the Broncos trade for a QB?

Photo by Will Newton/ Is the best way forward Drew Lock and a veteran? With the NFL Draft less than a month away, it feels like the biggest question hanging over the Denver Broncos is what George Paton will choose to do at quarterback. Now that all the best options in free agency are long gone, there’s only three real options in front of him: Will the new general manager spend his first draft acquiring a new signal caller? Will Paton trade for competition before OTAs begin? Are the Broncos Locked in to their 2020 starter? I’ve already shared how I view the...

What will George Paton do? | Photo by Eric Lutzens/The Denver Post Who would actually be available in the NFL Draft if George Paton doesn’t trade? One of the unsung tidbits most fans miss when it comes to draft season is how NFL teams generally meet around the beginning of April to lay out their plans for the draft. Those of us on the outside have been speculating for months, obviously. We’ve heard from a number of trusted insiders why ____ is going to slide or ____ will only be available via trade. Odds are most of it’s smoke because the teams themselves...

2021 NFL Draft profile: Texas Edge Joseph Ossai

Could Ossai be the heir to Von Miller? | Photo by Tim Warner/ Should the Broncos take another speed rusher from Texas? Thanks to their promising pair of edge rushers and a more aggressive pressure scheme, the Broncos were able to generate a pass rush last season without Von Miller. Bradley Chubb made the Pro Bowl while Malik Reed finished with 31 individual pass pressures as Vic Fangio adjusted to life without his future Hall of Famer. Going forward, there are a number of questions. Chubb enters the last season of his rookie contract while questions remain about...
