I don't believe I have ever seen any mock draft as clueless as this. I can only imagine that Denver is an afterthought in the largess that is The Sporting News. .

Horrible.

i actually thought that craig ochs and ted gregory made more sense in this mock. just judging by the direction it was headed.

Someone wants Sanchez to slip down to the JETS, judging by this mock. I'm not even real sure who the 2nd guy is (18) anyone mind filling me in on who he is and what round he will likely actually go in?

He is an offensive tackle...wow...

18 (18) Denver Eben Britton T Arizona
(from Chicago) After hitting a home run with Ryan Clady last year, the Broncos get Britten to give them two top tackles for the next decade.


apparently they don't realize who Ryan Harris is...

Buahahaha! Only thing better is their reasoning for #12.

<table class="con_data"><tbody><tr class="even"><td class="dleft b">12 (12)</td> <td class="dleft">Denver (http://warroom.sportingnews.com/nfl/teams/broncos)</td> <td class="dleft">Brandon Pettigrew (http://warroom.sportingnews.com/nfl/draft/2009/players/8420.html)</td> <td class="dleft">TE (http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/draft/position_rankings?position=TE&season=2009)</td> <td class="dleft b">Oklahoma State</td> </tr> <tr class="even"> <td class="dleft" colspan="5">Rumors say they tried to trade Tony Scheffler because he is not a blocker, which makes taking Pettigrew here a no-brainer. He is an elite blocker with solid receiving skills.</td></tr></tbody></table>
Idiot could have at least glanced at a roster.

Somebody ought to ask the Sporting News' Editor-in-Chief about that. Anybody,
if you run across him, would you ask him for the rest of us? Here is his latest picture
so you will know when you see him:

A TE and a Tackle in round 1?

You could make a case for those being our two strongest positions going into the draft, boggles the mind that this guy is allowed near a computer.

I think they've outsourced a lot of their work at Sporting News to India, judging by this mock.

Desi: Anoup, who do I put first?
Anoup: Put Curry. I love curry.
Desi: What is crabtree? Is that name?
Anoup: A tree of crabs? What does that mean?
Desi: I like this Raji. Now that sounds like a real desi player.
Anoup: Raji? Are there Indians playing this sport?
Desi: I don't know what to do.
Anoup: Just write names and put them in a bowl. We'll get Lakshmi over here to pick them out.
Desi: Mmmmmm. Lakshmi.

(what the hell, I'll post it over here too, for those who can't make it into the draft room) ;D

did they forget about big bad daniel graham? one of the best blocking tight ends in the league. this guy should be fired, sanchez dropping to 17th is the worst call yet. and as much as I love Rey Rey, it would be suprising if he is picked up before the 12th.

It would be easy to say the writer was just lazy. But a lazy writer would have us drafting a QB at 12. No, this writer somehow managed to combine the stupidity of a thousand Raider fans with the laziness of me on football Sunday.

Wow.
