Broncos mock draft roundup: April 29

On Cameron Erving (five picks)

****Charlie Casserly, "Right tackle is a major need. Erving can also play center."

Brian Baldinger, "Gary Kubiak loves a talented, athletic offensive line to execute his zone run scheme. Erving can play anywhere on the offensive line, but leave him at center, and Peyton could be his mentor."

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 T.J. Clemmings (four picks)


Dan Kadar, SB Nation]( "...Clemmings is a good athlete for an offensive tackle and plays with a nasty temperament. If his technique can catch up to his physical skills, he could become the best offensive lineman out of this draft."

Bucky Brooks, "Gary Kubiak's zone-based running game requires athletic offensive tackles with excellent movement skills, and Clemmings fits the bill."

Charlie Davis, "Has the skills to play LT, but has only played on the OL for two years. His selection allows Broncos offensive linemen to get back to their natural spots..."

On D.J. Humphries (one pick)

Todd McShay, ESPN: "...his strengths would be maximized and his weaknesses largely hidden in Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking-heavy offensive scheme. He lacks ideal power and length for the tackle position, but he might have the best movement skills off all the O-line prospects in this class." On Jake Fisher (one pick)

Lance Zierlein, "While I don't have him graded this high, Fisher is a scheme fit for Gary Kubiak and offers a higher floor than the tackles who might be available here."

On Ereck Flowers (two picks)


Rob Rang, CBS Sports]( "While perhaps looking like more of a mauler than a traditional zone-blocking tackle suited for Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme, Flowers is surprisingly athletic. Like Orlando Franklin, the man he would be drafted to replace at right tackle in Denver's scheme, Flowers (6-6, 329 pounds) is monstrous and highly aggressive."

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports: "He played left tackle in college, but would move to the right side for the Broncos. He would likely be an immediate rookie starter. He could also play guard."

On Cedric Ogbuehi (one pick)

Dane Brugler, CBS Sports: "The Broncos' offensive line is going through changes this offseason and right tackle Chris Clark is better suited as a backup. Ogbuehi has been dinged by some teams for his durability issues, but some around the league think his potential is worth the gamble in the first round."
