You know what's sad? Even with us trading Brandon to Miami, we still have better receivers than KC does.

Not really. But okay.

If you wanted to avoid the question, you could have just not responded at all.

Apparently, Bryant is going to be playing catch with Tebow at Dove Valley today. Could happen.

Hopefully the diva WR circus doesn't start all over again if we pick him.

Yes really.

I would rather Denver build their lines before going after more receivers. Mike Shanahan tried to get the skill positions first and then build an o-line...didnt work. So lets try it the other way around.

I would be shocked if we brought in a guy with his baggage right after getting rid of Marshall for his behavioral issues. Hell no, we should not draft Bryant! There are a bunch of quality receivers rated in the second round. That is where the value is at WR in this class.

No.

WR is the most overrated position in the NFL. I'd rather have Spiller/Iupati/Pouncey.

I keep hearing this Tebow/Bryant rumor and while it would be great PR, i wont some big dudes on our lines. Great receivers dont win championships, great lines do.

No...get McClain @ 11 and then either Benn or Thomas with 43 or 45.

Yes. All kidding aside, I hope 2 of the 3 picks within 45 are spent on the lines. I would love to trade back from 11 and pick up Iupati and Pouncey.

I wonder where Bryant goes now?

Dez Bryant would have been a great complement to Brandon Marshall.

Drafting him now just means you have an offense where a slow wide receiver and a slow running back are your two top "threats."

Brandon Marshall wasnt exactly fast for the record.

McClain @ #11 and a WR like Benn in the second round.
i don't know why but i'm starting to feel that Denver is gonna take Tebow in the late 2nd or 3rd.

Lestat

for his size he was very fast. and ran like a RB.

Brandon Marshall wasnt exactly fast for the record.

He was a big play threat.

Right now the Broncos have none.

Bring on Dez Bryant........yes! Say what you want but he's the only receiver in the draft with huge big play potential. Put a protection clause in his contract and tell him to lose the entourage

Bob's your Information Minister
04-14-2010, 08:35 AM
Drafting a linebacker with your top pick would be hilarious.

Right now you guys need CJ Spiller but taking two running backs in the first round in back to back years is highly unlikely. Even so, he'd give you a player opponents are scared of.

Too bad you didn't take Percy Harvin last year....imagine Harvin and Spiller on the same offense.

:Broncos:Wrong. Shanahan built an outstanding offensive line for the ZBS...best in the league.

He added great atheletes to the skill positions.

His demise was Defense!

I think WR is the least of our worries or at least one of them. The receivers we have can still save Orton's ass. A HUGE HELL NO to Bryant. We can get a very good receiver in later rounds.

Kyle Orton + nothing at receiver = offensive death.

You said lines and if you want Iupati and Pouncey, which I agree with, then the other one should go towards DL. But I'm wondering if Bryant goes into the second round if McD isn't considering him now. I really hope not.

If we can get players at LG and C which is still possible this offseason/draft then we might still have success as a power running team. Graham is a hell of a blocker, Quinn was in college and dspite being a complete waste last year he might at least be able to add that. Knowshown isn't a home run threat but did show some toughness along with Buckhalter and a potentially healthy JJ Arrington might have enough in the backfield to get the job done.

A big play WR needs to be coupled with a QB that can throw a deep ball. Marshall's talents certainly helped but he is much more dangerous as a mid-deep threat where his YAC translate into touchdowns rather than a short possession receiver - that can be made up by guys with good hands. With Orton at QB we couldn't get him the ball where he could do real damage so I think that in the short term the drop off won't be that huge.

Well that's awfully scary for you then, because with our nothings at receiver, we've still got more than KC. Besides who's Orton going to throw that "deep" ball to?
And don't degrade yourself further by bringing up Dwayne "drop ho" Bowe.

If we build our offensive line so its big and nasty, you'd be surprised with how well an offense can run. For the record, i'd rather have not traded Marshall...but its really annoying for cheifs fans to say anything because...well...you suck.

Gaffney, Royal, and Stokely are really solid receivers. I'm betting that if McDaniels drafts a reciever high it will be a really quick guy so that, with Royal, he can throw his screen to either side.

Great idea.

In what fantasy world do you live in where a bunch of backup-level scrubs are superior to Dwayne Bowe and Chris Chambers?

Well, the Chiefs had the top offense in the league at the time, so why don't you try coming up with a logical comparison instead of one that makes you look like a retard?

Well, he worked out great for you, didn't he? Trent Green was leading your so called top offense.

Oh, by the way, Green Bay picked selected Aaron Rodgers 8 picks later.

Derrick Johnson made complete sense at the time for the Chiefs. In retrospect it was a horrible pick.

I'd love to see you guys justify a linebacker selection for the Broncos this year while your offense sits there devoid of playmakers.

Kyle Orton + nothing at receiver = offensive death.

Power running game + depleted o-line build for a zone blocking scheme = offensive death.

This is what will be addressed in this year's draft IMO. I think the Broncos will move down in the 1st and pick up Pouncey, and take Benn and a defensive player in the 2nd.

Spiller and Bryant should both be available at #11.

Perfect spot to find a partner and trade down 5-10 spots and pick up another pick.

ScottXray
04-14-2010, 12:00 PM
Although I want to build the lines, Spiller is Intriguing.
Hard to see that as the pick , but the kids speed is amazing,
and he does catch well also. He is a terrific threat from anywhere
on the field, and does give whoever takes him a serious problem to be defended against. It would be great if we could do the lines AND get him
somehow. But speed can't get you past the LOS if there is a wall there.

Drafting Bryant would be seen as a FAIL, after trading away Marshall, and he doesn't fit the mold that McD seems to want. High character guy. There will be good receivers available in the 2nd and third rounds, and our core of guys
currently are good , if not great.

I don't think Dez will be there at #11 now. I see the Seahawks snagging him with their 1st pick since they failed to get Marshall. In fact, that could be a huge reason why they didn't go get Marshall. Maybe they think Dez will be a better WR, no strikes against him yet, and he's sure to make less then Marshall will.

Since we wiped out our skill positions I'd love to add legit playmakers to the offense. For once in my life I'd love Denver to have some scary threats on offense. We have always wanted possession type guys. I know the argument is without a legit QB it's a waste. Wouldn't it be nice if a 5 yd pass could go 80 yds for a TD instead of 5 yd pass down he goes= punt. Yes we need to bolster OL but, can we add world class speed as well.

I'd be shocked if we took Dez

I'd love to see you guys justify a linebacker selection for the Broncos this year while your offense sits there devoid of playmakers.

There are offensive playmakers in this draft well into the fourth round. There are some quality linebackers too -- but getting a guy like McClain or Weatherspoon (I'm for Weather, BTW) would probably signal us getting a player whose LTI is very short, and will contribute immediately -- perhaps in a Patrick Willis type fashion. I don't believe Dez will come in and put up All-Star numbers immediately, but linebacker is always a safe (usually) early selection because if the player has the right nature, they can make an impact right away. That is just one reason. Many others.

What if we can't trade back? Still like Iupati? I think I'd still take him. A pro-bowl guard is a pro-bowl guard.

What the hell has Drop the Ball ho or Chambers done that our WR's haven't? Not a damn thing.

Bowe and Chambers are 1,000-yard wide receivers. No one in Denver can claim that but Stokely and it's pretty obvious he is a big yawn of a player at this point in his career.

NFL defensive coordinators are laughing at Denver's wide receivers now. No one is a threat.
