    I'd much rather have a long term solution then have to waste late round picks every year on stop gaps.

    As much as TD did for this team, he sure did spoil us. Now we think every 6th round RB is going to the hall.

    I didn't say they're all 10 yr HOF type RBs. But c'mon he's taken so many backs late in the draft that have contributed: TD, MA, OG, Bell, Young, etc... I have to admit it's funny to watch people whine about this pick.

    Except for Ryan Torain, Carlton Powell and Jack Williams I really like every guy we selected..

    Not that I don't like these 3, it's just that I have never heard of either of them. I will just have to trust the coaches who had more access then me could see something in them. I really like every other player they scouted and took so I have to believe they see some of the same thing in these guys.

    Our draft wasn't sexy guys, but come on. It wasn't that bad!

    If we had to trade Hillis, Barrett and Larsen to have moved up for Smith or any of the other few mid grade guys, I for one will take the chance on Torain.

    I really wanted Laws. Probably more then any player accept Nelson. We could have had him instead of Royal but the truth is, Royal has a better chance of helping us next year. He is a good player guys. I really don't see him busting.

    The only way we get Stewart or Mendenhall is if we didn't take Clady. We really needed Clady. Look what we done for our O-line, it is getting bigger without losing the speed needed to run the zone blocking system. Great picks!

    Asked at what point would it be in the best interest of the team to trade Cutler, McDaniels answered: "Never." Nice to see your a man of your word Josh

    Mike Hart is always too small and too slow on every scouts radar. He's got intangibles that can't be measured. I think he'll make some team's roster and be a solid back up. Or there's always Canada.

    another missed oportunity by the broncos.

    i too am getting tired of second rate and lower tiered players. this diamond in the ruff stuff has got to end. the broncos seriously need to find a gm.....fast!

    They took him because Barber is in the last year of his contract at least that's what they said on ESPN.

    I agree with with you on Torian and Powell. I actually think Jack Williams was a fantastic pick. He's a prototype nickelback. He gives us great insurance in the event that Foxy leaves us next season. He's also a capable return man to push Royal in camp.

    If I had my pick, I'd have tried to swap next year's first rounder for Mendenhall. They may have tried...

    Apparently Mike Shanahan didn't think too highly of Mendenhall. Cause if he really wanted him, he could have made a move to get him. Mendenhall sat around til the 23rd pick behind Felix Jones.

    Most everyone's 1 and 2 RBs were Mendenhall and Stewart but those 2 do not compare to last year's Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch.

    Funny thing, Marshawn Lynch's grandfather lives down the street to my buddy's house.

    What would we have had to give up to move up and get him? Trade next years #1?

    We needed almost everyone we got with our other picks, I am glad we didn't trade them all away to move up..

    We also really need next years #1 to maybe get one of the 2 USC LB's coming out.. We are more then 1 player away.

    I see. Those that disagree are whiners

    Does that make those that agree homers?

    Like I said..where are they all now? The last all-pro stud back we had on this roster was taken with the 51st overall pick

    I think I have been pretty patient over the last ten years. Maybe I am crazy for wanting a franchise face at the RB position.

    Amen to that comment.. maybe to get back to 8-8.

    But playoffs not a chance unless SAN has a bomb go off during a training session that takes out their entire starting lineup they are going to rule the roost again this year..

    Just because you have a negative opinion about a pick, doesn't mean you are impatient. People are just expressing their views. If we all have the same opinion, then there's no point in having a message board. If we all are supposed to wash all the judging thoughts out of our mind and wait until 2010 to see how it turns out, there's no point in having a message board.

    It'll definitely be a 1st and probably a 2nd from next yr's draft or next yr's 1st and a player, someone like Foxworth.
