Champ Bailey: Broncos Re-Sign Bailey, How Does This Affect Draft?
With Bailey Signed, Will The Broncos Look At Patrick Peterson With Second Pick?
The Broncos signed Champ Bailey to a four-year contract, ending speculation about where Bailey will finish his career. Now the question is how this affects the Broncos draft strategy.
Several mocks over the last few months have had the Broncos taking Patrick Peterson with the second pick. The very talented cornerback out of LSU made perfect sense for the Broncos, so where does he fit now?
The Broncos still may target Peterson because it then would give them two great cornerbacks. But with Bailey signed, will the Broncos then shift their first-round focus to a Da'Quan Bowers or Nick Fairley?
With new Head Coach John Fox implementing changes on defense, both players would make for a great pick. The Broncos have to upgrade several parts of their defense, and there are a lot of options at the No. 2 pick.
The Carolina Panthers may take Fairley with the first pick, but they may go in a completely different direction and then the Broncos will be able to choose any defensive prospect they want.
Even if Fairley is off the board, you still have Bowers, Robert Quinn, Peterson, Prince Amukamara and Marcell Dareus. The Broncos have a lot of options, and that should make Broncos fans very happy.
