Nailing Down Draft Prep | DenverBroncos.com (Video)
The 2012 NFL Draft is almost here, and the Broncos are prepared for every scenario that could develop during the first round and beyond.

Tannehill not a lock for Dolphins or top 10 | Peter King
Michael Brockers is hot, Ryan Tannehill may not be. The old draft trade chart is out the window, the Jags have an itchy trigger finger, Justin Blackmon and Michael Floyd have the attention of the Rams, Seattle may not want to move as much as the current rumor suggests and, speaking of rumors, I’d advise you not to believe many of them about moving up.

Broncos transfer traditional playbooks to iPads for 2012 season | Denver Post
The Denver Broncos are tossing out the tradition of printing 500-page playbooks every week for each of the 120 players, coaches, scouts and other personnel.

Denver Broncos need to consider drafting Georgia star Brandon Boykin | Denver Post
Royal made some big plays on special teams, including an 85-yard punt return for a touchdown last year. He signed with the Chargers as a free agent. But even if he had re-signed with the Broncos, they still would have been looking for help on special teams.

NFL Draft Top 100: Luck, Griffin at head of the class | Denver Post
Just once in the history of the NFL’s common draft — since 1967 — have quarterbacks gone 1-2-3, when Tim Couch, Donovan McNabb and Akili Smith were the first three players selected in the 1999 draft.

Stanford’s Coby Fleener is the top tight end available in NFL draft | Denver Post
And with all of the touchdowns guys like Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham and Aaron Hernandez have scored in the last two seasons, folks around the NFL are more than fond of what tight ends can do in the current pass-happy state of the league.

Draft preview: Tight ends | Denver Post
1. Coby Fleener, Stanford, 6-foot-5¾, 247 pounds. Has the down-the-field potential everybody wants with 4.4-second speed in the 40-yard dash, plus an average yards per catch of just over 19 yards last season.

Dusty Saunders: ESPN, NFL Network are feeling another draft | Denver Post
NFL fans love to debate talent. Who’s the best quarterback — Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees? What about the Broncos’ Peyton Manning?

Just once in the history of the NFL’s common draft — since 1967 — have quarterbacks gone 1-2-3, when Tim Couch, Donovan McNabb and Akili Smith were the first three players selected in the 1999 draft.

Peter King’s 2012 NFL Mock Draft | SI.com
Denver will be stunned that Brockers is still on the board. And delighted. The Broncos lost free agent defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley to the Saints a month ago, and this raw but promising 6-5, 322-pounder could play nose or a more versatile tackle role. “On potential,” one coach told me, “Brockers deserves to be a top 10 pick.”

Broncos’ pursuit of Asante Samuel leaves clues to scheme and draft | IAOFM
