Rush Linebacker

mockdraft order=”58″ firstname=”Von” lastname=”Miller” position=”” from=”” league=”” teamlogo=””]The ‘SAM’ LB position will be occupied by Von Miller whenever he returns to the field. He’s going to be a beast again this season, re-focused after a season filled with turmoil in 2013.[/mockdraft]

mockdraft order=”55″ firstname=”Lerentee” lastname=”McCray” position=”” from=”” league=”” teamlogo=””]After spending all of last year on IR, McCray is primed for a breakout role this year as Von Miller’s backup and I think he’s worked his way into the regular rotation to start off the season. He’s showing explosiveness, quickness, and finishing ability. I love his potential.[/mockdraft]

mockdraft order=”48″ firstname=”Shaq” lastname=”Barrett” position=”” from=”” league=”” teamlogo=””]There will be a tough call to make on Barrett. The Broncos know they got a guy who can get after the quarterback, but how good is he on special teams to be worth one of the 53 roster spots? Barrett showed explosiveness in the first preseason game and has been picking up steam at camp of late. He’s a talented edge rusher, and you can NEVER have enough of those in the NFL.[/mockdraft]
