John Elway couldn’t be happier about it. John Elway: ‘we’re very happy’ with first two days of NFL DraftAfter the trade back on Thursday night netted Denver an extra 2nd round pick, we knew today would be fun - we just didn’t know how fun.The Denver Broncos added a starting caliber offensive lineman at #41, a developmental quarterback, who many predicted Denver taking at #10, at #42, and a disruptive pass rusher to add some juice on the defensive interior.Here’s what Elway had to say about his his Day 2 haul.Elway on Dalton RisnerElway vocalized what we assumed with the Risner pick, and confirmed it as well with Mike Klis, that they will look for Risner to step into a starting guard slot.Risner’s versatility gives Denver options should something happen to one of their starting offensive tackles, but it looks like the K-State product will be looked at to fill the right guard spot with Connor McGovern sliding over to center for the departed Matt Paradis.Risner was one of the guys on whom Denver did a considerable amount of homework leading up to the draft. Elway mentioned getting to meeting and talk with Risner at the combine, in one of their 30 pre-draft visits, and at the Senior Bowl where Risner made it a point to introduce himself to Elway.Elway on Drew LockSpeaking of homework, Drew Lock was another player with whom Denver made no secret they were interested their interest. Like Risner, Denver met with Lock at the Senior Bowl, the combine Tom Jackson Jersey , and brought him into the facility for a visit (as well as personally attended one of his games in the fall).When recalling how Lock did, specifically on the whiteboard in the sessions, Elway said:When asked about the things Lock could improve on and where he needs to work the most, Elway said:Elway and Fangio on Dre’Mont JonesWhile Munchak and Scangarello are excited to work with their new offensive toys, coach Bill Kollar will get a chance to coach up defensive tackle, Dre’Mont Jones. The Broncos are fairly deep at defensive end, but Fangio indicated there will be a role for Dre’Mont Jones coming in - rushing the passer.“I think initially he’s best suited to play in our nickel as a tackle, Fangio said. “But the techniques in there are very similar to our base package also. He’ll just be thrown in the mix with the other guys and let the competition play itself out.”Elway echoed those comments as well, speaking to the importance of having an inside rush to pair with their dangerous edge guys.“We felt like Dre’Mont with the pass rush ability inside with the outside pass rush that we have would be a great compliment inside,” Elway said. “I think he’s a guy that’s going to continue to get better. He has great quickness and has tremendous upside.”Upside and development were the things both Elway and Fangio reiterated when talking about Jones. Due to Jones being a bit undersized for a traditional defensive tackle, at 280lbs, Fangio was asked if the success of undersized interior rushers like an Aaron Donald help with taking a chance on a guy with Dre’Mont’s skillset.“Good defensive tackles are just hard to find,” Fangio replied. “They come in all shapes and sizes. You have your preferences as to a certain skill set, but you have to be able to adjust and adapt and play the guys that you can get. [Jones] is not 295 or 305 lbs. Adam Gotsis Jersey , but we believe that he can play inside for us and continue to develop.” Part of that development may be asking Jones to bulk up a bit to handle the interior, but the most important development will be the work he gets with Bill Kollar, who has molded guys like Derek Wolfe, Shelby Harris and Adam Gotsis on the defensive line. Jones now has a chance to join that group and bring some pass rush to the inside of this defense.Overall, both Fangio and Elway seemed excited about the players Denver has added so far. “We’re very happy with all the picks we got today. We feel like they’re very good football players that will help us,” Elway said.We’ll see who Denver continues to add to the stable on Day 3.Horse TracksNFL News One second-round pick down, one to go for the Broncos.Despite a report that both of the Broncos’ second-round picks might miss the start of training camp in a contract dispute, Nicki Jhabvala of TheAthletic.com reports that the Broncos have agreed to terms with second-round pick Dalton Risner.The question now is whether the Broncos’ remaining unsigned draft pick, second-round quarterback Drew Lock, will sign in time to report to camp on time tomorrow.Risner was the 41st overall pick and Lock was 42nd in this year’s draft. Ordinarily, the draft contract slotting means a rookie can’t expect to make more money than a player drafted ahead of him, but Lock reportedly wants a “quarterback premium” of more guaranteed money than a player in his draft slot would ordinarily get. It remains to be seen whether Lock insists on a bigger guarantee than Risner, and if so whether the Broncos give it to him. But getting Risner’s deal done is a good step for the Broncos.
