Broncos mock draft roundup: April 21



On T.J. Clemmings:**

Charles Davis, "...Clemmings fits right away at right tackle and allows the rest of the offensive line to go back to their best positions."

Brian Baldinger, "I see steady improvement from Clemmings. Rookie offensive linemen have a good chance to play immediately in Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme."

Don Banks, Sports Illustrated: "Finding an offensive right tackle to replace the departed Orlando Franklin is the obvious first-round objective."

Rob Rang, CBS Sports: "Coach Gary Kubiak's beloved West Coast Offense calls for athletic offensive linemen. Theydon't come much more athletic than Clemmings, a former defensive end who has steadily grown into a star the past two years at right tackle."

On Cameron Erving:

Bucky Brooks, "Erving is a versatile blocker with the skills to play multiple spots along the frontline."

Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN: "...[The Broncos] need to solidify the interior of the offensive line, and it's hard to do any better than Erving at this point. He's a versatile offensive lineman and the kind of player who will help Denver keep the title window wide open."

Daniel Jeremiah, "Erving is a perfect fit in the Broncos' offensive scheme."

Will Brinson, CBS Sports: "Erving is a nice grab now for his versatility and long-term he can lock into either guard or center as a high-impact player."

On D.J. Humphries:

Todd McShay, ESPN: "...he's a great fit in new head coach Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme because of his athleticism and movement skills."


On Ereck Flowers:**

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports: "They need a right tackle, and Flowers would play right away."

On Benardrick McKinney:

Andrew Mason, "...McKinney is a perfect fit as a 3-4 inside linebacker. [...] Offensive line is a possibility, but Gary Kubiak and Rick Dennison are among the best at developing linemen selected in Round 3 or later."


By player: T.J. Clemmings (six), Cameron Erving (four), D.J. Humphries (two), La'el Collins (one), Ereck Flowers (one), Benardrick McKinney (one)

By position: Offensive line (14), inside linebacker (one)
