2010 NFL Gridiron Gab Mock Draft: #11 Denver

Well, that was fun. The Denver Broncos started off 6-0 to start the 2009 season under rookie head coach Josh McDaniel. The Broncos can only wonder now what might have been. What if Kyle Orton had not gotten injured? The Broncos had the ball bounce both ways all season long. But that was last year. This is now. Brandon Marshall signed elsewhere. the Broncos are getting their players in. There’s reason to be optimistic here.

And with the eleventh pick of the 2010 NFL draft, the Denver Broncos select..

WR Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State

On paper, this trade makes sense. Yes, the Broncos need a playmaking
perfect sense. The Broncos need a top flight receiver with Brandon Marshall being shipped off.

One scouts take of Dez Bryant:

Bryant only played in three games as a junior before being suspended for minor a violation of NCAA rules, which has seemingly led some to forget what a great player he is. Despite the layoff pro scouts still consider Bryant to be one of the premier talents in this draft. Checking in at a solid 6-2 and 225 pounds, Bryant may not have elite speed but he is very elusive, a great leaper with terrific ball skills and catches everything in sight. Bryant has the potential to be a true #1 target at the next level and many feel he is just as good of a prospect as Michael Crabtree was coming out of college, if not better.

However, there are some concerns with Bryant as well. Todd Mcshay in his latest mock draft

Many are convinced Oklahoma State WR Dez Bryant is the choice here, but Denver made it clear with the Brandon Marshall trade that it is not interested in players with character issues. We don’t see Bryant as an option.
