Denver

Report: The Broncos like free-agent quarterback J.P. Losman.

My take: The report suggests Denver could pursue the former Bills top pick if it doesn't take a quarterback in the draft. I think Denver will take a quarterback this weekend, whether it's Mark Sanchez in the first round or a developmental quarterback in the late rounds. Still, Denver's interest in Losman shows the Broncos aren't sure about the veteran quarterback pairing of Kyle Orton and Chris Simms. If Losman was brought in, he'd surely be in the mix during training camp. Whether it's Losman or not, it is clear there will be another quarterback in Denver very soon.

Kansas City

Here's another take on whether Aaron Curry will be the Chiefs' choice at No. 3.

My take: It could all be moot if Curry ends up the No. 1 choice in Detroit. But I do believe Curry will be available at No. 3 and the Chiefs will ultimately take him. There are other options, including taking a tackle, a receiver, a defensive lineman or a trade. But Curry may be the safest pick and safe is always good that high in the draft.

San Diego

The Chargers could be eying Ohio State defensive back Malcolm Jenkins.

My take: Jenkins could be moved from cornerback to safety. In San Diego, Jenkins would be moved to safety. Jenkins, I believe, is one of the top defenders on San Diego's wish list. The team does need a safety, but I think there are surer bets out there. Why risk taking a player who needs to switch positions to help you? San Diego should take a player such as linebacker Rey Maualuga or defensive end Tyson Jackson, if they are available, in the first round and take a safety later.
