NFL Notes: Draft, Broncos, Titans



Daniel Jeremiah of takes a look at seven draft prospects who helped themselves at the Senior Bowl last week.

Jeremiah’s list includes:


Broncos executive VP John Elway said that they have enough draft capital to work with this year that they could make trades if needed.

“Any time you draft that high you have to make ’em count,” Elway said, via Mike Klis of 9News. “We’ve got a lot of picks so we have the ammo also [to trade], so we’ve got to make sure we make them all count.”

Broncos HC Vance Joseph made an interesting comment about picking high in the draft when he said, “you rarely miss (with draft picks) when you coach this game.’’

“I hope he’s right,’’ Elway said of Joseph’s comments. “Anything we can do to improve our misses, we’ll be in good shape. The hard thing is getting to know them. When you’re around them in the meeting room as well as on the field, it’s much better than a 15-minute interview at the Combine.’’


Titans DL Jurrell Casey said that his goal is to play another six years in the NFL for a total of 13 seasons.

“I am not done yet,” Casey said, via “My goal is to play 13 seasons, and anything after that is a bonus. But 13 is my goal.

Casey, who is a five-time Pro Bowler, says his ultimate goal is to end up being a Hall of Famer when all is said and done.

“That has always been my goal,” Casey said, “and it still is. I’m working to get there.”
