After the dismal 4-12 season that the Denver Broncos had in 2010, they now find themselves with the second overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft.
As noted by other commentators here on Bleacher Report, the Broncos have at least a few options regarding this pick. They could trade down, as many have suggested, or they could go ahead and use the pick and draft a player.
If they go ahead with the latter, choices seem to come down to either Patrick Peterson, Da'Quan Bowers, Nick Fairley, Marcell Dareus or possibly Von Miller.
Barring a total surprise from Elway and Co. on draft day, these five are the most likely choices.
Broncos' fans deserve to have a well-balanced, reasoned analysis of these possible choices, and that is what this slideshow will seek to accomplish.
