All things must (eventually) come to an end. This selection is made with the idea that Von Miller is not getting any younger. No, I do not believe he’ll be off the team too soon.
However, the selection of Daelin Hayes is with the intention of him learning from a future Hall of Fame edge rusher and hopefully, he will become a great player.
Hayes shows some pretty amazing strength at times. For instance, take a look at this 1-on-1 against an earlier selection of mine: tackle Spencer Brown.
It doesn’t always show up on tape, but when it does, he’s a true force. I am sure that Von Miller and Bradley Chubb can teach Hayes a thing or two to get him where he needs to be in order to be very successful in the NFL.
Hayes could be successful either on the line with his hand in the dirt or as a stand-up rusher.
A cornerback out of Oregon, Deommodore Lenoir possesses some good ball awareness.
The Broncos did sign Kyle Fuller and Ronald Darby this offseason after releasing A.J. Bouye, but they need some younger guys, and for a longer period of time than what Fuller and Darby’s contracts suggest.
The Broncos run primarily a zone defense, and that’s something that Lenoir is solid at.
I really like Lenoir’s ability to stretch out and make plays. There have been several instances at Oregon where he made some pretty incredible interceptions.
He would be a nice late-round addition to the Broncos’ secondary.
