Watching the Mocks: 4.0

Posted Apr 4, 2014

Leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft, our weekly look at draft pundits' latest projections for the Broncos' pick at No. 31.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Here's our weekly look around the web for the most recent predictions regarding the Broncos' No. 31 overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. Below are the experts who either changed their pick for the Broncos or changed their explanation for keeping the Broncos with the same player as a previous mock draft.

For previous projections that include the latest mocks from ESPN's Todd McShay and Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke and Don Banks, take a look back at Watching the Mocks 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0.

DenverBroncos.com Independent Analyst Andrew Mason: Wisconsin LB Chris Borland

If Derek Carr is still on the board anywhere late in the first round, look for someone to trade down -- maybe the Broncos if the deal is right.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr.: Borland

Second-round pick: Clemson WR Martavis Bryant

Third-round pick: Montana LB Jordan Tripp

The Broncos have to get better at inside linebacker, and given the window they are working with, I want to take a player who can come in and upgrade the position immediately. Borland does that, and cornerbacks have been flying off the board in front of me, so I bet on a higher rate of immediate on-field impact. I don't think the wide receiver position is in desperate need, but minus Decker it's at least lacking in upside on the depth chart, and Bryant could be a high-ceiling help coming off the bench or if any of the starters go down. I'm doubling down at linebacker in Round 3, after a sequence where two more cornerbacks come off the board in the preceding few picks.

Sports Illustrated's Doug Farrar: Stanford G David Yankey

Losing guard Zane Beadles to the Jaguars in free agency might be a problem for the AFC champs. While it’s true that Peyton Manning makes his lines better with his quick release and expert decision-making, it’s also true that Beadles gave up just one sack last season in 1,449 snaps, which is pretty ridiculous, no matter who your quarterback is. Yankey would be a good fit in Denver because he has the athleticism to play left tackle (which he did for the Cardinal in 2012), and the strength to maul defensive tackles inside.

NFL.com's Bryan Fischer: Yankey

Yankey would be a perfect Zane Beadles replacement who can pick up the offense quickly.

NFL.com's Matt Smith: TCU CB Jason Verrett

They spent big money for Aqib Talib. They can offset that expense in the draft and lock up the other side.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler: Missouri DE Kony Ealy

Injuries put a hurting on the Broncos' pass rush last season and Denver must develop depth in the front seven. Ealy has first-round tools and with some pro coaching, he should continue to blossom.

Second-round pick: South Carolina WR Bruce Ellington

With Eric Decker no longer in Denver, the Broncos could add some young talent to the wide receiver position.

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco: BYU LB Kyle Van Noy

He's the type of football player that a GM like John Elway would love to have.

CBS Sports' Pat Kirwan: Alabama LB C.J. Mosley

It would be great if a player like Mosley fell to the Broncos. They lost Wesley Woodyard in free agency and Mosley can run a defense.
