John Elway: Picking 28th just as good as 10th

By Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Unlike the past two years, the 2013 draft sets up better for teams picking late.

So says John Elway, whose Broncos pick 28th overall.

"The draft this year is not top-heavy," Denver's executive vice president of football operations told the Denver Post. "So we feel like we can get as good a player at No. 28 as we could at 10.

“It's not like last year with (Andrew) Luck and RG3 (Robert Griffin III)," Elway said. "The year before with Von (Miller) and (Marcell) Dareus and A.J. Green and Patrick Peterson -- loaded top end. This is probably a deeper draft, but not nearly as many top impact guys."

All eight CBSSports.com draft experts expect Denver to take a defensive lineman in the first round, either Ohio State DT Johnathan Hankins, Alabama DT Jesse Williams or UCLA DE Datone Jones.

The Broncos lost defensive end Elvis Dumervil to the Ravens in strange fashion, but still could sign Dwight Freeney to replace him.

Denver also will be looking at cornerbacks and running backs early in the draft.
