Evening AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
In an ESPN.com Insider piece, KC Joyner thinks Colorado cornerback Jimmy Smith is more valuable than Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara. He is expected to be drafted much higher than Smith, who has off-field concerns. San Diego and Oakland are among the teams that has shown interest in Smith.
Eastern Washington running back Taiwan Jones showed blazing speed at his pro day Thursday. The Raiders, who love speed, was at the pro day held near Oakland. The Broncos also have an interest in Jones.
In an interesting interaction with the readers of the Denver Post, former Denver safety John Lynch talked about the possibility of joining an NFL front office at some point and who he’d tab to be the No. 2 overall pick for Denver. His choice is a small surprise.
