By signing Peyton Manning, the Denver Broncos gave themselves a three-year window in which they can make a serious run at the Super Bowl. But their selections in this draft class raise some questions about the direction this franchise is headed.
Derek Wolfe was a reach in the early 2nd round. John Fox was clearly looking for a penetrating three-technique tackle but, while Wolfe is a decent athlete for his size, he lacks the consistency to warrant such a high pick. He’ll be plugged into a starting role immediately, but I question his ability to be effective. There were better options, such as Kendall Reyes, on the board.
The Brock Osweiler selection baffles me. For starters, it’s a reach in the 2nd round. He is a purely developmental prospect who needs significant work on this motion and his decision making ability. But what really concerns me is that fact that the Broncos used an early pick on Manning’s replacement when they could have added a playmaker to help Manning in his pursui...

The Denver Broncos targeted quarterback Brock Osweiler with the No. 57 pick of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Osweiler is an excellent leader with the arm to eventually make all of the throws at the next level, but is raw as he was just a one-year starter at Arizona St. With that said, Osweiler falls into a great spot, as he gets the luxury of learning from a future Hall of Famer...

Not many. With seven picks in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos added just three offensive players and only two might help out Manning in 2012. Bronco’s head coach John Fox, a defensive...
