Really though, Rev you need to grow up. I know what this is really about. You're only coming after me now because I neg reped you for calling Doctor Broncostein a murderer.
First, I didn't call him a murderer, I called him a hypocrit.

Secondly, no, I just realized why I'd initially lost all respect for you. You have no thoughts of your own. This is another example. Plenty of people were all for Albert before the draft, none more-so than you, and those guys have been the ones arguing with you post draft about his effectiveness.

And believe me, if internet rep meant anything to me, I'd act just like you.

PS. Please stay on topic... I'd love the explanation of how your thought process goes from:

Kevin Robinson is a great value selection. Goff is a good choice too. Powell is probably gone by the end of the fourth. Zenon will develop into a more physical but slower Foxworth.

Not too shabby!

four rounds:

12. Branden "Fat" Albert OG/OT, Virginia
43. Broncos - Pat Sims DT, Auburn : Broncos are looking for a penetrating DT. (not a big fan of Sims)
109. Broncos - Harry Douglas WR, Louisville : Broncos want a new no. 2 wideout.
120. Broncos (From Skins) - Steve Justice C, Wake Forest : Broncos know a good value when they see it.

Man, I want Albert to be a Bronco. I hope he's wrong. Albert will pwn us as a Chief. Keith Rivers sucks.

Contrary to what you and others think, RT is out of position for Kuper. He's never really played the position and most of his work as a pro was on the left side of the line.

There is also a draft coming up. If we have a guy like Brandon Albert on the team playing either tackle position, I'm almost positive our line will do really well next year. This could also be a smoke screen and we could still draft a left tackle. Be grateful Shanahan has finally decided to start using true 300 lb guys in the trenches. Wait and see who we get. I promise you even if we draft someone at number one they won't play on the line. Broncos never draft linemen in the first round and they never play their rookies. There is a good chance this will be the line for next season regardless of what happens. There is a good chance it will be better than last years' line too.

They aren't comparable as players. Diehl has better feet than Albert who is more of a grinder, so you're talking about two different body types. Albert was largely considered an incredible prospect at guard who could play some right tackle. I haven't heard anyone except Albert's agent say he was a good left tackle prospect. Even if he is, it will take years of playing on the line and learning to be able to make a move over there. Your own example proves this.

We've converted guys to tackle all the time but when you look at how long it took to get them over there, you understand how difficult it is. Albert will probably be a great player at guard and even right tackle, but it will take years for him to adjust to playing the blind side and he may never really excel there.

Cavs fans will tell you the same thing, but Chief fans like Sheepstud won't hear it. He's all-world already as far as they're concerned.

That doesn't mean he's going to suck at other positions, nor does it mean he won't have a successful career. He is without question a project at tackle and should be playing guard.

Yeah, he's incredible running down field and punching once he makes contact, but kicking outside against a speed rusher? Prepare to watch Croyle on his back. Of course you'll probably just blame your guard or stop posting when that happens like you guys did last year until your draft gave you some insta-courage. Chief fans.
