ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Safe to say, the Broncos will not be faxing their pick to league headquarters.
Still, it's that balky fax machine and the repercussions of losing Elvis Dumervil that helped shape the way Denver heads into Thursday's draft.
The team that tied for the best record in the league last season, then lost both its playoff game and Dumervil to the Baltimore Ravens, needs a pass-rushing defensive lineman as much as anything this offseason.
The Broncos have the 28th pick in the draft and whether Executive Vice President John Elway decides to use it, or trade down as he did last season, he figures to have his pick from a deep group of defensive ends, including Tank Carradine and Bjoern Werner of Florida State and Datone Jones of UCLA.
