It's been a very eventful offseason for the Denver Broncos, to say the least.
First, they make national headlines by signing free-agent slot receiver Wes Welker. Broncos fans cheered and welcomed the speedy Welker with open arms, yet their jaws all hit the ground when it was revealed that the Broncos, due to a fax mix-up, released superstar defensive end Elvis Dumervil.
Dumervil, who certainly enjoyed his time in Denver, had agreed to take a pay cut in order to stay with the team, yet the signed contract did not reach the NFL's office in time, and the Broncos could not keep Dumervil and stay below the salary cap.
After a bidding war, Dumervil agreed to terms with the Baltimore Ravens, ending his career in Denver. His loss is heartbreaking for the Broncos, and it means that defensive end now becomes a draft priority along with defensive tackle, cornerback and middle linebacker.
Needless to say, it will be a defense-heavy draft for the Broncos.
Here are four picks that could seem appealing to the Broncos, but in reality, they should avoid.
