    If Torain was the only reach in this draft, then no problem. But we've been reaching since Round Two.

    I have no issue w/ the player as far as talent goes. I'd never question Shanny in that regard. I just don't like the injury history.

    Maybe you should call Bowlen?

    Good grief. You can't even spell Draft, let alone select players for the Broncos...

    no instead we expect you and others (LEX) to not like the pics b/c the players name wasn't listed on your mock draft. Or maybe you want to go blog about it..

    Have you read my blog? I'm guessing you haven't because if you'd seen my draft grades thus far you'd realize you don't know what you're talking about.

    I also didn't do a mock draft, ever.

    So whats the issue with Hart?

    I would have guessed he would have been a better choice at some point than a oft injured slow bruiser?

    Not trying to bring this pick down, but one has to believe this was a head scratcher at best.

    I think Torian was drafted to play a specific role. Hart doesn't fit that role. Hart does have better potential to be a 15-carry back though, and he's more versatile. Personally, I'd rather have him.

    If Torian can come in and give us 5-7 Zack Crockett carries per game, I'll be happy. But outside of a goalline option and a special teams guy, my expectations are low.

    I have bashed Shanny as much as anyone on his draft record, but when it comes to late round RB picks, I'll defer to his opinion every time. Love it or hate it, he is the best at finding hidden gems at the RB positions in the later rounds. I'm backing him on this pick.

    I never did a mock draft. I don't know what your talking about. If you think my writing sucks, don't read it. I could care less.
