Is Quenton Nelson enough, or should the Broncos ‘shoot for the moon’ at No. 5?

Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson is considered the best prospect at that position in a decade, but is he worth the No. 5 pick? In a quarterbacks’ league, not every position is created equal, and more than a few Broncos fans want an explosive game-changer instead — are they right?

‘Broncos Blitz’ podcast hosts Ronnie K and Shawn Drotar take different sides on that very question; Ronnie argues that guards are essentially smaller tackles and less-agile centers, which makes them less valuable — something that more than a few NFL scouts agree with. Shawn thinks that people are underrating not only pass protection, but the value of a top-tier pulling guard in the running game.

The pair move on to the wide receiving corps, which desperately needs depth behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, and they offer their suggestions from the available players in free agency.
