With the No. 28 pick in the DBN 2015 NFL Mock Draft, the Denver Broncos select...
Cameron Erving, OL, Florida State
The selection and write-up were made by Maverick Hunter X:
The Broncos are lacking in many areas on the offensive line right now. Ryan Clady was okay for them and Louis Vasquez had a down year compared to his previous years. I see them selecting an offensive lineman in more than just the first round and Erving's ability to play multiple positions will give them some wiggle room in putting together the best line possible.
When the Browns switched to the zone blocking system, we didn't quite know what would happen. We weren't sure if certain under-sized linemen would all of a sudden be useful because they are more athletic and if certain bigger non-athletic linemen would struggle and need to be replaced. Denver is where the Browns were last year when switching to the ZBS, just with a much worse offensive line. Erving can instantly help improve many of the positions on the line and would be too hard for even a terrible drafter like Elway to pass up. I see him as a day one starter -- where he starts depends on what other offensive linemen they draft this year.
The storyline for the Denver Broncos this year will be whether Peyton Manning is still Peyton Manning. If he's not, the Broncos are going to need to limit the amount of hits he takes and have a sustainable running game. To an extent, they'll have to play the type of football the Browns want to play on offense this year, albeit with a much better quarterback.
The Indianapolis Coltsare up next, led by Mudville.
