Many are saying NE reached, but what about Denver? Bottomline: Teams select players they want.
The reach. NFL personnel people like cornerback Kayvon Webster. He's confident, smart, fast (4.37 in the 40 at the combine) and a quality tackler.
Yet even the Broncos may admit they reached slightly to snag him in the third round with the 90th pick overall. Many teams had a fourth- or fifth-round grade on him after a no-interception season in 2012 in a struggling defense at South Florida.
But teams such as the Broncos, coming off a playoff season, always have to make a choice as they pick at the bottom of each round. Do they want to jump a little early to get the player they want, or wait and hope the player will still be there when they pick at the bottom of the next round?
The Broncos strayed from their "don't reach" philosophy a bit with Webster, but they see him as a physical player who can contribute quickly.
