Hi, I'm Brian Xanders. As GM of the Denver Broncos, my primary job is to receive trade requests from disgruntled players' agents. We managed to get rid of Jay "It's Time to Test My Blood Sugar" Cutler, and at the moment, we're entertaining the idea of trading Brandon "Soon to Be Arrested Again" Marshall, but with Dez Bryant already gone, we're going to do whatever we can to keep him in the fold. Keeping that in mind, we'll look at wide receivers later in the draft.
For our first pick, we considered Joe Haden, who we believe is the best cornerback in the draft. Our secondary isn't getting any younger, and we feel he could blossom into our next Champ Bailey. But as much as we like him, we have bigger needs and think we can worry about our secondary next year.
Our once-elite offensive line could use a little help, but we like our tackles and it's just too early to take an interior lineman at this point in the draft.
To be honest, we're more concerned about how teams ran against us late in the season. In fact, it was flat-out embarrassing, but with the best defensive tackles already taken, we're going to look to improve at another position.
Therefore, with the 11th pick of the 2010 RedsZone NFL Mock Draft, the Denver Broncos select Rolando McClain, inside linebacker, Alabama.
We love McClain's physical style of play and feel he's a perfect fit for our 3-4 defense. Not only that, but this allows us to move Andra Davis back to the outside where he belongs. McClain is athletically gifted (although granted, not an elite athlete), has an incredibly high football IQ, and is extremely coachable. We're getting a great locker room guy who's going to make an impact for us immediately.
Good luck. The only thing that can get in the way of our playoff hopes now is Kyle Orton.

Anyone have a quarterback they don't need? Please?
