WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
On T.J. Clemmings:**
Charles Davis, NFL.com: "...Clemmings fits right away at right tackle and allows the rest of the offensive line to go back to their best positions."
Brian Baldinger, NFL.com: "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, NFL.com: "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, NFL.com: "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, DenverBroncos.com: "...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."
