This is like when Mike Shanahan got credit for drafting Terrell Davis in the 6th. As Shanny said then, if he were smart, he'd have drafted TD in the first.
But whatever. He did a good job, Elway did a good job, who gives a **** about a poll?
He was considered a 1st round talent if not for the height issues. The fact that Elway took beanpole boy instead of Russell should definitely count against him when assessing the job he's done as a GM this year.
