05/13/2014 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: DENVER BRONCOS: Round 5/156 -- Lamin Barrow, MLB, 6-1, 237, Louisiana State...The Broncos hope Barrow is an eventual answer at middle linebacker, but he could find an immediate role as one of the two linebackers in the nickel sub package. His skill set compares with that of incumbent weak-side linebacker Danny Trevathan. Barrow was a priority Broncos target; general manager John Elway said that coach John Fox "made about 18 laps" around the Broncos' draft room while nervously waiting to see if he fell to their spot. - The Sports Xchange
