There are already multiple mock drafts available that have the Broncos taking Kwity Paye in the first round of the draft. How should you feel about that?
Paye is a solid football player, one who you can count on to adapt to a change of scenery as his family escaped Liberia and came to the United States where Paye grew up and played football in Rhode Island.
He was recruited to play at Michigan, one of the biggest college football programs in the nation. There, he showed himself to be an exceptional athlete who can both get after the quarterback and defend against the run.
On film, you will see Paye show the ability to eat double teams and still make plays. He’s not the natural pass-rusher that Rousseau is, but he can still put pressure on the passer. He had 11.5 sacks during his college career, including 6.5 in his junior season.
Paye may not give the Broncos the prototypical replacement for Miller, but he is a guy who is versatile enough to line up at defensive end or outside linebacker. He would likely be a day one starter on the defensive line, especially if the team loses Shelby Harris or cuts Jurrell Casey, as expected.
