Even though Broncos safety Brian Dawkins is nearing the end of his career, the Broncos should hesitate on drafting a high-round safety.
They signed Mike Adams, a solid safety who will immediately start. And aside from Dawkins and Adams, Denver has two up-and-coming safeties in Quinton Carter and Rahim Moore.
Carter was a fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma in 2011. He emerged as a starter late last season and ended up playing well down the stretch.
Moore was a second-round pick out of UCLA and, like Carter, was drafted last year. Moore hasn't lived up to his full potential just yet, but he is only entering his second season in the NFL.
