I think he'll contribute in a rotation, but I think 2014 is the year he opens up a can on everyone.
I thought he was drafter to play NT.

Same tape as everyone else. If that's his best it won't cut it in the NFL. The article even states the DL coach commenting the guy is at 101 level.

Out here in Denver Donkeyland, we don't get to see anything if it doesn't have Elway's or Peyton Manning's picture in it somewhere.

Thanks Oak. Didn't see him being double teamed all that much. Looks like there's a lack in the desire department. Hopefully he'll want it more in the big leagues.

He will do okay his first year. We seem to forget that Bunkley was a stud as 34 NT with DEN. Our line is already in great shape. Think about our GL situations with the big men we have now. In my opinion our D-line is the least of concerns this season, I expect big things from Jordan and Hicks.
