UPDATE: This draft pick was made following the Jay Cutler trade. Denver and mgrex03 will draft again in Round 1 at pick #18. ColtsFanNChiTown will draft for the Chicago Bears in Round 2.

Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State

12. Denver Broncos

Drafter: mgrex03

Reasons for drafting: "Of all the positions on defense, CB looks like to be best off, with Champ Bailey and Andre Goodman (signed as FA from Miami). However, Bailey isn't getting any younger (12th season upcoming), and Goodman isn't a spring chicken either (9th season upcoming). A bigger need is probably at LB or DE, especially with the switch from the 4-3 to the 3-4 under new DC Mike Nolan. However, I think reaching for Tyson Jackson this early should not be in the cards, especially now that they have pick #18 as well, and Cushing and Matthews have more question marks than does Jenkins.

Since 1990, OSU DBs drafted in the first round include Shawn Springs, Antoine Winfield, Nate Clements, Chris Gamble, and Donte Whitner, and only 1.5 busts (Ahmed Plummer had injury issues, but was a starter in 5 of his 6 seasons). I'd call that a very good track record for future success. Jenkins will start right away at the nickel, and will be able to learn from 2 of the best DBs in the NFL (Bailey and Dawkins)."
