It's a fairness vs free enterprise debate. You are upset that the kids get a free ride, and I 100% see your argument. I believe that SOME college atheletes don't get enough. Fab 5 for example. How much money did Michigan and the NCAA and CBS make off these guys? Name on jersey or not, we all know the #5 is Jalen Rose. They make millions, he got the same scholarship a flute players, who brings no money to the school, gets.
I don't believe in fair and teach my kids not to expect it. Also tell it to the inmates I work with when they scream for fair treatment. Some folks get shit we dont'. We get some shit others don't. Such is life.

Q: We all know the Broncos need to draft defensive tackles, but I really believe they need to draft a running back to contribute early. I've seen a lot of Texas A&M games, and Cyrus Gray looks to be a sleeper, in my opinion — good speed, vision and hardworking. Could the Broncos go this way?
A: Bobby, the Broncos already have an effective lobbyist on the roster when it comes to Gray — linebacker Von Miller.
Miller was Gray's teammate for three seasons — Gray started eight games as a freshman in 2008 — and when asked, Miller has consistently said Gray has the all-around game the NFL wants in a running back.
"He can do a lot of things," Miller said. "He's kind of that do-it-all guy."
Christine Michael was the A&M back to have before he went down, imo, I think he'd been right up there with Miller behind Martin/Richardson.......
Michael is the better of the 2 backs, but his size and injury history are going to be question marks
The Broncos continue to send signals that they’re going to grab a quarterback at some point in next week’s draft.
They went down to Arizona last week to check out the tall Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler and they’ll follow that up with a pair of visits from quarterbacks at team headquarters this week. Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Michigan State’s Kirk Cousins and San Diego State’s Ryan Lindley will both come in to meet with the team and make their case for being a developmental option behind Peyton Manning.
I'm still trying to figure out why we HAVE to draft Peyton's replacement THIS year. I am still of the opinion that we use the draft to get him pieces he needs to win now and maybe visit drafting his replacement next year. Thoughts?
Also, I never intended for this thread to be solely about Morris Clairborn's leaked wonderlic. Feel free to post any draft related articles here.
As far as Claiborne......I'm sure he can comprehend a playbook just as good as the next player and his play on the field proves he is very good at his job. I'm not big on gauging a player because of wonderlic scores.
Sure sounds like the Broncos will draft a QB fairly early, though I don't have a problem with it I would think they're passing on a player that could see the field a lot earlier at another position. I also think the usual suspects probably shouldn't be considered the heir apparent, the Broncos have spent the better part of the last 13 seasons spinning their wheels with inferior talent at the QB position.
When it's time to replace the QB they signed just 3 weeks ago I hope they do so by drafting a prospect in the 1st round.......
I can promise you the 215 in the media guide is bullshit. I'll see if he put on a few when I go to spring practices, but the kid is built like a slot receiverOriginally Posted by Jaded:1612945
If the guy is going to be an elite QB in the NFL it's going to take a while. SO, you might as well see what you've got with Manning, and then take somebody else next year.
They need to draft for right now, and worry about the future next year.
