    I too love Moore and agree the Broncos need a safety or two in the 2009 draft or FA market. Should the Broncos lose to SD they will drop down to 12-13ish. I think the Broncos need a repeat of the 2006 and 2008 drafts in terms of success. The investment in Defense in 2007 appears to have been a bust (Moss/Crowder). I believe that Shanny would like to have the extra positional players on Defernse that he has on offense. What I mean is that Denver’s massive Offensive playbook is really built around 14 positions (11 plus a Tight Receiver (Sheffler), a scat or half back (Aldridge) and a Slot Receiver (Stokely), Denver also bifurcates the speed Wide Receiver (Royal)) from the oversized Split End position (Marshall) . Denver’s first quarter and early season offensive power is based on Shanny’s strength; game planning an offense that attacks any given defense. The weakness is that a 14 position offense requires depth, multi-position player flexibility and health. Denver is particularly vulnerable to injury due to this football philosophy. On a 45 man roster, a 14 position offense creates a cost on special teams since Shanny dislikes using starters on Special Teams. Ideally I believe Shanny wants the flexibility on Defense to do the same thing, flexing between the 4-3 and the 3-4 to create a defense that can game plan against any offense and attack it. Without safeties and depth at corner, Denver becomes a very simple non-blitzing Cover 2, 4-3. This defense makes good players look bad and results in a lack of sacks and turnovers.

    Denver’s #1 pick needs to be at Saftey (strong) and inside linebacker. Nate Webster is not an inside linebacker, particularly in a 4-3. He is undersized and lacks the run crushing skills that a 4-3 ILB must have. FS McCree is a 2009 UFA. 2008 7th rounder SS, Barrett is getting a lot of late season playing time and then there’s the oddity of Woodyard (a OLB/SS tweener) who can might be asked to drop 5-7 pounds and return back to his natural SS from OLB.

    Denver may have some very good names on the board at 12-13 at both positions. In addition to Moore, USC’s Taylor Mays may still be there. Any of three quality ILBs may be still there as well (Mauagula, Laurinaitis, and Spikes).

    I am a big fan of Utah’s Sean Smith a guy who can give you instant depth as he can play either FS or CB. I hope Denver using the 3-85ish pick there. I also like Ohio’s Mark Parson who also might be there at 3-85. He has very good man-to-man cover corner potential.

    Keep in mind that Denver’s lack of DB depth has caused Denver to run a hideous non-blitzing scheme most of the year. Remember the 1Q of Buffalo? Champ comes back and Denver attacks on D. All of a sudden they have the “talent” to get to the QB. Champ sits out a couple of series in the 2Q due to cramping and conditioning and the old ugly non-blitzing cover 2 4-3 returns and gets chewed on. I actually think Moss might turn out to be OK (although he’s got a long way to go to justify the 2007 #1) as a LDE/OLB in a 3-4/4-3 flexing and attacking D.

    I am having trouble with Denver’s 2nd round pick as I’m finding a whole of good choices there. I believe Denver will have 10 picks in 2009 (all their 1-7 plus an extra 5, 6 and 7 from Seattle and Atlanta).

    I also love Duke’s DT Oghobaase if he declares as a junior for the 2009. We might use the 4th to grab him. On offense, I think we could use another FB (Texas AM Jorvorskie Lane – who might drop to the 4th or 5th) and another oversized Split End / Tight Receiver tweener to back up Marshall and Nate Jackson as Sheffler’s TR backup.

    I love Oregon’s Jaison Williams a 6-5 240, 4.53 freak who because of his conventional offense tweener (undersized TE or too slow WR) may drop to the 6th round.

    The 2009 FA class starts with Raider CB, Asomugha. But I think they will franchise him. Nest is DE Suggs, who also will likely get franchised. We may have the ability to take a shot at two quality CBs – Dunta Robinson or Chris Gamble.

    Moore, Mays, Laurinaitis, Mauagula, Spikes? Any of those 5 would be a major step foward for Denver.

    Obviously we need a strong defensive player in the draft, but why not pick a back like shonne greene out of iowa! he has proven he is a consistent back and will work really hard for any program no matter which he is with. If Shonne is already selected before our pick then choose the obvious and select taylor mays if he is anything like polamalu then we should be fine!
