At the team's official site, Gray Caldwell has been monitoring the draft experts' choices for Denver in the first round. Of the 21 mocks Caldwell has been following, five have the team selecting Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant.
Personally, I don't see the logic behind it. Third-year cornerback Chris Harris has been receiving high praise, and Denver just signed Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie this offseason.
Champ Bailey is slowly losing a step, but the team has Harris, Rodgers-Cromartie, Tony Carter and second-year cornerback Omar Bolden behind him. That is not inadequate depth.
But the talking heads seem to think cornerback is a position of need, and they may be getting that information from the team. The Denver Post's Mike Klis says the Broncos will draft a cornerback in the first three rounds of the draft. And while it's hard to tell if that is speculation or a scoop from the team, defensive back is expected to be addressed.
If Denver does go cornerback, Trufant is a solid prospect.
Odds of Trufant being drafted 28th: 25 percent
