The Broncos have undergone quite the roster turnover with new coach Josh McDaniels. With the draft now just less than a month away and the Broncos with 9 picks, the team is ready to add more players. Here we go with our first version of our Broncos 2009 NFL Draft:

1st Round: 12th Pick
2nd Round: 16th Pick (48th Pick Overall)
3rd Round: 15th Pick (79th Pick Overall)
4th Round: 14th Pick (114th Pick Overall)
5th Round: 4th Pick (140th Pick Overall)
5th Round: 13th Pick (149th Pick Overall)
6th Round: 12th Pick (185th Pick Overall)
7th Round: 16th Pick (225th Pick Overall)
7th Round: 26th Pick (235th Pick Overall)

1st Round: 12th Pick – Everette Brown, Florida State, DE

The Broncos need a playmaking player on that D-line, and I love what Brown brings to the table. He’s the top end in the class, and notched 21.5 TFL, 13.5 sacks and four forced fumbles in 2008. He’s 6-2, 256, and can motor for four quarters, which is what the Broncos will want him to do in 2009 and beyond.

2nd Round: 16th Pick (48th Pick Overall) – Evander Hood, Missouri, DT

Let’s stay defense, and go with another stud type of player at the DT position, taking big bad Evander Hood. The Missouri DT was a member of the All-Big XII First Team, and had seven TFL, five sacks and 12 quarterback hurries. 6-3, 300 pounds, Hood is another guy that can bring it and can be a big part of the rebirth of the Broncos defense.

3rd Round: 15th Pick (79th Pick Overall) – Marcus Freeman, Ohio State, OLB

More defense, as the team goes for an outside linebacker with Marcus Freeman from Ohio State. The team picked up Andra Davis from Cleveland, and has Elvis Dumervil on the other side, but Freeman can add some youth and depth to the position. Listed at 6’2, 236 pounds, Freeman voted to the All-Big Ten Second Team, Marcus Freeman finished the season with 76 tackles, nine TFL and 3.5 sacks.

4th Round: 14th Pick (114th Pick Overall) – Tyronne Green, Auburn, OG

Green comes in at 6’2, 309, and has was a solid starter for a good Auburn O-line last season. Right now Ben Hamilton and Chris Kuper are listed as the teams starting guards, so this is a spot that could use an upgrade, and Green, who could easily go earlier, is a solid prospect at this spot.

5th Round: 4th Pick (140th Pick Overall) – David Veikune, Hawaii, DE

Back to the defense, and with this pick the team builds back up the D-line with Veikune, who wrapped up his career in Hawaii with a senior campaign with 16.5 TFL and nine sacks. Did 225 pounds 35 times, and also at 6-2, 257, is a guy that may be a player that could be a sleeper.

5th Round: 13th Pick (149th Pick Overall) – Rhett Bomar, Sam Houston State, QB

With the Jay Cutler thing very much up in the air, I wouldn’t mind them going QB here for a guy that looked good last season with 3,355 yards, 27 touchdowns and 13 picks. Bomar is 6-2, 225, and came from Oklahoma to play at Sam Houston, where he got a chance to show his stuff. Could be a project, and could be the 3rd QB in 2009 if drafted.

6th Round: 12th Pick (185th Pick Overall) – Lee Robinson, Alcorn State, OLB

The team grabs another OLB with this pick, as they get Lee Robinson, from Alcorn State. Last season he was nn All-SWAC First Team qualifier, and compiled 111 tackles, 10.5 TFL and three picks in 2008. Is 6-2, 249, and could add some depth at the spot and on special teams.

7th Round: 16th Pick (225th Pick Overall) – Wopamo Osaisai, Stanford, CB

The team adds some depth to the defensive backfield with Osaisai, who was an All-Pac 10 second-teamer, Wopamo Osaisai had 67 tackles, 3.5 TFL and eight passes broken up.

7th Round: 26th Pick (235th Pick Overall) – Nick Reed, Oregon, ILB

One more player for the defense, Reed was pretty good in his senior year. The NFL considers him too small and too short. He measured 6-1, 245 pounds at his pro day and ran a 4.71 40-yard dash, and was one of the best players not invited to the event. A project at best.
