Which player is the leader on defense? Peyton Manning clearly commands the offense.

Dawkins was an emotional leader on defense but he's retired.

Champ is still a great player but he's a quiet leader. Elvis and Von get headlines but neither seem to be running the defense.

Which player do the other players turn to? Maybe the lack of a locker room leader reveals how the defense plays.

That mantle is rapidly passing to Von. His actions on the field speak volumes. Much more so than locker room speeches.

This is why I desperately want Te'o. He would do more than fill this role.

I couldn't agreemore. The guy is exactly what this defense needs. He brings toughness, leadership, and most importantly skill to the MLB position. Stop the run or run with TE's. He can do it all.

We have no real leader on D. Hopefully Von can fill that role as the season goes along.

I do agree that T'eo would bring the presence and leadership this team has lacked, quite honestly, since Al Wilson. However, I think that Denver has too many weaknesses in the trenches to go with a Mike. I also think that T'eo is going in the top15. IMO he is very similar to Patrick Willis. I wouldn't be upset with a T'eo pick but i would go elsewhere

Te'o has no shot of being available when we pick unless he tests awful and falls or we go 8-8 and pick around #12.

I doubt he will even be their at pick #12. Guy is a fringe top 7 pick in next years draft. But he is the kind of player I would risk losing future draft picks to move up and get him by any means possible. Been a huge fan of his for a long time. As good as he is on the field, he is an equally good person off it.

6-15 is about his range really depends on how he tests, if he puts up Willis type numbers top 10 easy.
