Denver Broncos executive VP of football operations John Elway has no problem with having a late first round pick (no. 28) in this year's NFL Draft.  "The draft this year is not top-heavy," he said, via The Denver Post's Mike Klis. "So we feel like we can get as good a player at No. 28 as we could at 10. It's not like last year with Luck and RG3. The year before with Von (Miller), (Marcell) Dareus, A.J. Green and Patrick Peterson -- (a) loaded top end. This is probably a deeper draft, but not nearly as many top-impact guys." This year looks to be a great year for already successful teams to load up on some raw talent that they can take their time with through development, and the NFL Network's Mike Mayock is in agreement with Elway on the matter. "If you're a playoff team, you're laughing because there is so much depth to this thing that if you're drafting 20 to 30, it's not a whole lot different than the fifth or sixth pick," he said. The first round is Thursday April 25th, with second and third rounds on April 26th, followed by fourth through seventh rounds are April 27th. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
