    This is the new rumor or basically what is being said by Gosselin, McShay, LZ (Houston Chron and Radio Host) and others from PFT. That moves Peterson and Dareus down. I'm really excited about this draft. I think there will be alot of maneuvering. Kipers last mock has Miller there too.

    Okay, I guess I don't get this. I don't keep up with Denver at all, but Fox is running the 43 there, right?

    I don't see how Miller fits into that defense at all. I think he has to be a 34 OLB, and a weakside one at that.

    So is this good or bad? Will the bills take Gabbert or Dareus? Does this help us score Peterson?

    They also have Dumervil. Are they going to line up two small DE's?

    That is exactly why I think this is a smoke screen and they will take Dareus.

    If this happens I see the Bills taking Peterson or trading town to 10 so the Redskins can jump the Bengals and take Gabbert.

    Carolina - Newton
    Bronco's - Miller
    Bills - Peterson
    Bengals - Gabbert
    Cardinals - Dareus

    Maybe they want to sucker some team who loves Miller into trading up for him.

    It's lame, but that's about all I can think of.

    yeah, it makes no sense at all. Dumerviel will likely have to play SSLB, kinda like Peter Bowlware in Baltimore while they ran a 4-3. You can get away with 1 pass rushing LB in a 4-3, but not 2.

    This makes me think they are enticing someone to trade up, maybe Buffalo, but I doubt they do.

    Any team that might be tempted to call them to ask what it would cost. Was that question really confusing?

    Movement within the top 5 is pretty rare. Only twice in the past 10 years.

    That or they are trying to deter teams who may be looking at trading up to #1 with Carolina in order to draft Marcel Dareus. If Denver leads teams to believe that Miller is their guy then teams that covet Dareus may not feel the need to trade up to the top spot if they think they can trade up to 3, 4 or 5 and still get him.

    With the second pick in the draft, why blow smoke? Carolina takes whoever they want, then they have the pick of the litter.

    Just throwing this out there, but what if it's simply to flip-flop with Buffalo and pick up a 4th rounder as a hail mary?

    Don't discount this entirely, but Denver could select any three of the top defenders this high.

    Problem is, I don't see anyone who would want to trade up to #1 that is already high enough that it doesn't cripple their draft.

    Doesn't matter, if Miller goes 2 then Dareus goes 3, if Dareus goes 2 Miller goes 3.

    I think he plays OLB on base downs and then plays with his hand down in nickel sets. Not unlike the way Shotty used Lavar Arrington when he was in Washigton. As Goose said, John Fox needs linebackers and defensive linemen, and there's only one good linebacker in the draft, but a ton of defensive linemen. They can get Miller in the first and then grab a Clayborn or a Phil Taylor in the 2nd.
