Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Robert Ayers was in the discussion for the Broncos' 12th pick, but Denver had running back Knowshon Moreno higher on its board and was gambling Ayers would still be around with the 18th pick. The move paid off when Ayers fell, allowing Denver to take a player that could fit as a 3-4 end or at outside linebacker. A closer look at the Broncos' picks: Round 1/18 -- Robert Ayers, LB/DE, 6-3, 273, Tennessee...Ayers didn't start until his senior year but made the most of it, parlaying a big year into a first-round grade. The Broncos will start Ayers at end, but he could end up at outside linebacker. Denver also thinks Ayers is versatile enough to play at tackle in passing situations. He provides immediate help to the front seven. - by The Sports Xchange
