Broncos preseason: Peyton Manning vs. Jay Cutler, Matt Flynn, Alex Smith, Kevin Kolb | First and Orange
That matchup will kick off at 2 p.m. Aug. 26 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The game will be nationally televised on Fox.

ESPN’s Mel Kiper projects the Denver Broncos to select LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers with the No. 25 overall pick in his latest mock draft.

Ta Ta for now Timmy “Tinseltown” | Mile High Report
See, I knew that moniker would make you laugh Tim. Seems that you have a much better sense of humor then most of your hypersensitive fans. Honestly I didn’t know much about you, other than the obvious, before you came to the Broncos a little too early in the spring of 2010 but I have grown to like and respect you.

2012 NFL Draft

2012 NFL Mock Draft | Walter Football
You think Peyton Manning will have a hand in the decision-making when it comes to the 2012 NFL Draft? Demaryius Thomas is a fantastic talent, but Manning needs someone else to throw to. Why not another Georgia Tech receiver? Stephen Hill will stretch the field and open things up for the running game.

2012 NFL Mock Draft 4.0 | SI.com
Brockers has slipped some as the draft scouting process has unfolded, but he’d be a great value for a Denver team that needs some heft and athleticism in the middle of its defensive line.
