There has been a lot of speculation as to what the Denver Broncos could do with the 31st overall pick in Thursday night’s draft.
There are several scenarios laid out in which the Broncos trade out of their pick if one of the top quarterbacks slides down the board. With the way the Broncos have operated lately, obviously going for a Super Bowl victory before Peyton Manning calls it quits, a more likely scenario seems to be trading up, perhaps for former Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker C.J. Mosley, who they are reportedly targeting.
However, if it is up to Broncos’ head coach John Fox, they may opt to select a big body up front.
According to Peter King, Fox “loves” former Minnesota Golden Gophers’ defensive tackle Ra’Shede Hageman.
“John Fox loves Hageman,’’ one GM told me Monday, and putting him in a three-man combo platter with Sylvester Williams and Terrance Knighton would be big trouble for the offensive coordinators of the AFC West … if Hageman can be the kind of consistent player he wasn’t always at Minnesota.
In his most recent mock draft, King has the Broncos selecting Hageman.
