DMac & Troy are excited about Broncos offseason workouts starting up tomorrow, and DMac says it matters when a team travels to go watch a player work out, like Denver will do with QB Clayton Thorson on Wednesday in Chicago. DMac says Devin Bush is solid, and could be more NFL-ready than Devin White.
The guys react to Cecil Lammey’s Mock Draft 3.0 in which he has the Broncos taking Ed Oliver at No. 10 overall, and DMac tells Troy that CJ Anderson is a born hustler after Troy breaks the news that CJ is headed to the Detroit Lions.
DMac wants the Broncos to minimize the mistakes they make, and Troy takes a look at how Denver stacks up against the division. DMac says the Broncos need to avoid rostering the worst starting QB in the AFC West, and Troy says the Pats are a metronome of consistency.
DMac asks Troy to explain the terms of the Flacco deal, and to defend why the Broncos did not sit down with Bradley Chubb before drafting him. DMac agrees with Troy Haskins is becoming intriguing at No. 10 overall, and DMac tells E. Sanders to be careful & remember what happened to TJ Ward.
DMac calls N’Keal Harry a ‘coin flip guy’ and has grown sour on DK Metcalf. Also, Troy talks about college athletes catching balls in space & Elway wanting to win.
