Mel Kiper's 2011 NFL Draft Grades For The Broncos

Mel Kiper Jr. has released (Insider required) his 2011 NFL Draft grades and the Denver Broncos received high marks for their nine selections. Denver is in Kiper's third-level with a 'B' grade. No team received an 'B," but the Detroit Lions and the Cincinnati Bengals each received an 'A-' for finding value throughout the draft. The San Diego Chargers are in the second tier with a 'B+' because they selected players who should play immediately. However, he is down on the Jonas Mouton selection in the third round.

Why does Kiper give the Broncos a 'B'? He sees the addition of Von Miller as a no-brainer because he can be the defensive rookie of the year; Rahim Moore, the first safety off the board, was great value; and Nate Irving "could be a steal." However, he does have concerns over the lack of defensive line help. So Kiper gives a 'C+" for addressing team needs, but a "B+" for getting value.
