Krieger: Terrapin tempts Broncos - April 17, 2006

April 17, 2006

Musings for a Monday morning on possibilities, both real and imagined . . .

• The Broncos are not doing much to disguise their fondness for draft prospect Vernon Davis, a 6-foot-3, 250-pound tight end expected to be among the first six picks of the NFL draft.

• A variety of sources in a variety of places say if the Broncos trade up, it will be to get Davis. The Broncos understand they would have to trade up to at least the fifth pick because the 49ers are widely expected to take Davis at No. 6 if he gets that far.

• The former Maryland Terrapin is a remarkable athlete and pass catcher, one of those rare 250-pounders to break 4.4 in the 40 at the combine (by one stopwatch, anyway). If the Broncos make a move for him, it will be an attempt to replicate the playmaking of Shannon Sharpe.

Cecil Lammey of Football Guys.com says Davis' closest NFL comparison is Alge Crumpler, who had 65 catches for 877 yards last year, leading the Falcons in both categories.

• If the Broncos stay where they are, at Nos. 15 and 22, the popular consensus at No. 15 seems to be wide receiver Chad Jackson of Florida.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has Jackson rated just ahead of Ohio State's Santonio Holmes as the best wideout in the draft; Lammey has Holmes just ahead of Jackson.

• The main rap against Jackson has nothing to do with Jackson. The history of highly touted Gators wideouts in the NFL is underwhelming.

• It includes Taylor Jacobs (No. 44 to Washington in 2003); Jabar Gaffney (No. 33 to Houston in '02); Reche Caldwell (No. 48 to San Diego in '02); Travis Taylor (No. 10 to Baltimore in '00); Jacquez Green (No. 34 to Tampa Bay in 1998); Ike Hilliard (No. 7 to the Giants in '97); and Reidel Anthony (No. 16 to Tampa Bay in '97).

• If few of these names ring a bell, you have put your finger on the problem.

• In fact, the Broncos are familiar with the Florida Flop Phenomenon. Nineteen years ago, they drafted Ricky Nattiel at No. 27. He had 121 catches.
Kudos to Lammey for being cited as a draft expert along side Kiper...FBG seems to be moving up as a primary source for news/analysis :thumbup:

Thanks everyone. Dave Krieger and I have done some shows together on KOA. He's a big fan of FBG's. :thumbup: I know of several beat writers from across the country that use FBG's News Blogger as a source for hunting down news. Some of them even lurk in the Shark Pool. :ph34r:
