With the initial waves of free agency behind us, ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said he expects the Broncos’ draft strategy for their first picks to be unchanged. “I think when you look at what they need right now, and I think it’s still the same thing going in,” Kiper said on Thursday in a conference call with NFL media. “You think about the offensive line, you think about an inside linebacker, another receiving entity, so I would say offensive line or linebacker at that particular point for the Broncos would make a lot of sense.” Noting the additions of tight end Owen Daniels, defensive lineman Vance Walker, safety Darian Stewart and guard Shelley Smith, Kiper said the number one priority for Denver looks to be offensive line for their first-round pick at 28th overall. In his latest mock draft, dated March 5, Kiper projected the Broncos to pick Florida State offensive lineman Cameron Erving, but he thought a few other prospects could fit the Broncos’ roster with their first-round pick. “For Denver at right tackle, I would think where they’re picking late-one, you’re looking at that particular point, maybe for a guy if he drops—I don’t think La’el Collins from LSU would still be there, I don’t think Ereck Flowers will be there from Miami of Florida; they would be two ideal fits at that particular point in the draft, I just don’t think they’ll be there,” he said. But barring slides from Collins or Flowers, Kiper thinks there’s still a strong fit there they can draft without reaching. “If you look at T.J. Clemmings from Pitt, played right tackle, [a] late-developing football player — former D-lineman didn’t play football until late in his high school career,” Kiper said. “He was a right tackle at Pitt, struggled at left tackle at the Senior Bowl practices. He’s the kind of guy at that point, he would make sense. He’s a developmental tackle prospect who, as I said, played very well at that spot. Left tackle may be asking too much. Clemmings may be the guy that’s there. I think Flowers or Collins would be a bit more highly rated if they slid down that far.” However, he said he could see the Broncos looking at inside linebacker with that pick.
