Considering the amount of offensive talent the Broncos have accumulated over the years, it's easy to see where the playoff hype is coming from. Still, there is a part of me that looks at the Tackle position, as well as the defense, and wonders if there aren't similarities to the Cleveland Browns team that everyone fell in love with a year ago. Having Ja'Wuan James opt out was a real gut-punch to this team, and considering this team gave up 41 sacks a year ago, the tackle play could be the Achilles' heel to this offense's success. I strongly considered a tackle here because of that, but Denver can't continue to spend high picks on the offensive side of the ball without the defense falling behind.

The defensive line is in desperate need of long-term answers, and secondary has a variety of positions that could use an upgrade. However, I'm going with Parsons here. We won't get a chance to see him in Happy Valley again after he opted out for the season. However, the would-be junior recorded 191 tackles over two years in which he was named both a Freshman All-American ('18) and a Consensus All-American ('19). He would instantly become one of Vic Fangio's most talented defenders on that roster, and the man running that defense on the field.

BRONCOS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
