View Full Version : Okay, Who's the One Player...

04-25-2009, 09:37 AM
Here goes. It's draft day. Something like Christmas morning in the football world. The presents are under the tree. Some of them have your team's name on the them. When you open those presents, what is the one name you really want to see, and the one name you really don't want to see?

My number one that I would like to see is Rey Maualuga. I want a playmaker back on the Broncos. Somebody who blows people up and gets the fans to jump to their feet. I want to see that disruptor in the O&B. I really wanted Polamalu bad and begged that Shanny would trade up for him, but the Broncos just didn't have the juice at the time to make that trade. I want somebody like that on the Broncos.

The guy I really don't want to see announced by the Broncos is BJ Raji. Everything I've read about the guy rings alarm bells that he gets the big paycheck and gets fat and lazy and won't play when he's got a hangnail.

So who are yours?

Id like Denver to get Alex Mack. I know its not going to happen. It seems more likely it would be someone like Eric Wood, but I think Mack can give us that meanness at the tip of the spear. Who I dont want depends on where he's picked. I dont want Ayers at 12 or Cushing. But Sanchez is at the top of the list of players I definitely dont want.

So for me its:
want: Beanie Wells, Alex Mack
d/w: Sanchez, Ayers, Cushing

04-25-2009, 09:43 AM
Want(s) - Ayers, JAckson, or Jenkins
No - Sanchez, Beanie Wells

04-25-2009, 09:45 AM
want: Curry

don't want: Moreno

04-25-2009, 09:48 AM
Wants - Mack, Mike Thomas, Hill and Barwin
Don't want Ayers, Raji Rey-Rey and most defiantly not Mike Johnson

04-25-2009, 09:51 AM
want: Curry

don't want: Moreno

I'll take Moreno at 18 I'm sick of no name backs

04-25-2009, 10:08 AM
yes....Raji, Laurinitis, Maualuga, Jackson

no......Sanchez, an OT, an offensive guy in general.

04-25-2009, 10:08 AM
I am thinking Ryan Leaf @ 12 and Brian Griese @ 18

04-25-2009, 10:14 AM
Want: Curry, Jackson, Jenkins

Don't want: Rey-Rey, any offensive tackle.

04-25-2009, 10:15 AM
What if Denver took one of the guys you like but also one of the guys you dont like? Would you be cool with that?

04-25-2009, 10:18 AM
Honestly I am not too thrilled about the prospects in this draft.

Wants: Raji, Jackson, Ayers
Dont want: Wells or Moreno

backup qb
04-25-2009, 10:26 AM
want-Jenkins, V davis, Laurenaitis, Matthews, Cushing, T Jack and a good kicker
No- Sanchez, Rey Rey, OT, TE,

Want Orakpo, Tyson Jackson

Don't want Raji, Maybin

04-25-2009, 10:34 AM
Want: Jackson, Raji
No thanks: Orakpo, Maybin

Want: Moreno, any of the 3 USC LB'ers
No thanks: Wells, Jenkins

04-25-2009, 10:37 AM
#12: A)Raji B) orapko

#18: A)Moreno B) Everette Brown C) any of the USC LB's

04-25-2009, 10:40 AM
Want - Jackson, Jenkins, Alphonso Smith, English, Moreno, Wells, Donald Brown, Gilbert, Brace, Chip Vaughn, Sintam, Rashard Johnson and Jennings....Well I like a lot of guys :)

Don't Want - Sanchez, Orakpo, Any USC LB, projected OLB in general (how are they any different than Doom, Moss, etc...)

04-25-2009, 11:17 AM
Curry, obviously... but to be realistic, Jackson. My 2nd pick hope would be that Brown could slip to us.

As long as we go LB/DL in the first two picks, I'm a happy guy.

My worst nightmare involves taking something like a CB, RB, WR or TE in the first round.

04-25-2009, 11:31 AM
Wants - Raji, Jackson, Orakpo, Brace late if we can't get an NT early.
Dont want - Any offensive player in the first two rounds.

Re. Would you be cool with One player you want and one you don't, yes witha few conditions. The O player taken needs to be a RB, not with the first pick, and the other two picks must address the line.

04-25-2009, 11:33 AM
Give me




04-25-2009, 11:41 AM
I would love to have Jackson, but I've given up all hope.

As the draft approaches, more and more folks are pegging the Chiefs as taking LSU defensive end Tyson Jackson with the third overall selection.

The folks at ESPN are all over the possibility, and Mike Mayock of NFLN has had Jackson shooting up the board.

It seems a little high, but if the Chiefs use the pick and not trade it, Jackson is looking to be the guy, not Aaron Curry.

Jackson would be counted on to become a Richard Seymour-style presence in the 3-4 defense the Chiefs are incorporating, as the so-called “five technique” defensive end.

04-25-2009, 11:51 AM
Want- Curry, Raji, Orakpo, Lauriaitis, Moreno, Mack, Jerry
Don't want- Jackson, Cushing, Maybin, Sanchez, Jenkins,

04-25-2009, 12:07 PM
Want- Rey-Rey (real bad), Jackson, Cushing

Avoid- Maybin (BUST!!) or any CB on the first day

also not real high on Raji (I, also think he'll be an underperformer, and don't see how he would fit in as a "cornerstone" to a defense. He seems to be like a guy that want the glory of the DE's (sacks), but plays DT)

04-25-2009, 12:14 PM
I can't help it, I want Rey Maualuga to be a Bronco. That is the number one guy for me. Next would be Knowshon Moreno, even though D is a much bigger priority. They are just my favorite players in the draft, I love watching them play.

I don't want a QB, TE, or WR in the first 3 rounds

mellow mood
04-25-2009, 12:33 PM
my christmas would be

brace in the second

runner up would be

delmas in the second

either and i would be thrilled

04-25-2009, 12:43 PM
christmas present = BJ Raji...(esp if he somehow falls to #12)

04-25-2009, 12:49 PM
you guys with your "don't wants" (that include any front 7 players) are hilarious to me....

i think Nolan & McD have a better idea of what players in the front 7 that fit their schemes better than us...

so as long as our picks are towards team needs, how can i say i don't want them?...

as long as front 7 or even RB is addressed, i'm happy...whoever McD & Nolan think best fit under those needs is best decided by McD and Nolan...

so i'll be happy with any combo of Raji, Jackson, Orakpo, E. Brown, Moreno/Wells, Cushing, Rey Rey, Curry, Maybin, Ayers, English, etc...

as long as the Broncos address our needs, the actual player they pick to do so is a crapshoot regardless...so i'm good with whomever they think is best...

04-25-2009, 01:01 PM
get jackson at 12

trade 18 for a second this year and 1st next

04-25-2009, 01:06 PM
Just get Rey and OLB/NTs and I'm happy

04-25-2009, 04:22 PM
#12: A)Raji B) orapko

#18: A)Moreno B) Everette Brown C) any of the USC LB's

1 of 2 ain't bad.....Moreno will be a superstar!
