That handshake solidified the Denver Broncos' most busy off season in history and completed maybe the biggest free agency signing since the current system began in 1993.
Peyton Manning's agreement catapults the Broncos to the top-tier in the Super Bowl conversation. A plethora of significant deals would follow: Tracy Porter, Jacob Tamme, Joel Dreesen, Andre Caldwell, Mike Adams, Caleb Hanie as well as resigning avid contributors Wesley Woodyard, Joe Mays and Ryan McBean.
However, since the initial storm of free agency seems to have weathered, and what remains on the horizon for available quality players is "slim pickins," the remaining holes (and the Broncos have a few) will need to be filled through quality players in the 2012 NFL Draft.
This article will address a pick-by-pick analysis and select the most likely quality player available that will simultaneously fill some of the glaring needs within the Broncos lineup, in order to field a complete team and help take Mr. Manning and Mr. Elway back to the Super Bowl for another shot at the Lombardi Trophy.
