NFL Mock Draft 2011: NFL Mock Draft Predictions for Denver Broncos' Third Pick
The Broncos Put An End On The Line
The Denver Broncos get their third pick of the draft, and they continue to rebuild the defense.
With Sam Acho, they now have addressed the line, the end and the corner.
This was not arbitrary because the Broncos could draft a running back as well. Ryan Williams or Mikel LeShoure could go here and I would not be surprised.
However, with so much good defensive talent, and no excitement for any of the running backs, I think the Broncos grab the best talent and go for a running back the next time they come on the clock.
The quarterback conundrum will sort itself out, and I am predicting a Tim Tebow coup on the position. There is something about it that seems inevitable. John Elway may be looking at a lot of quarterbacks, but he is not going to draft any of them. Like Mike Holmgren, I think Elway just likes to look at quarterbacks.
With Kyle Orton, Tebow and Brady Quinn, the Broncos are set at quarterback. In fact, they may be able to trade Quinn once normal business resumes.
