I think we can both agree that we hope it works out just as Elway envisions.
yes, he played well for Tampa. but we didn't draft him and likely wouldn't have drafted him.
we had DJ & Wesley, we drafted Danny T, Nate was the back up to Von, we weren't in the market to spend a high round pick on a LB in that draft.
he wasn't going to play for us, DJ and Woody would have blocked him for the most part and unless the staff hated Nate he would have ridden the pine.

yeah, except i don't have a problem with us making the pick.
i wanted Brock as the QB draftee that season. either he or Tannehill were the two QB's i liked best to sit behind Manning, but Tannehill went to Miami so that wasn't going to happen.

my entire point in posting in this back and forth with you is for you to understand that more than likely we wouldn't have taken the player you're so obsessed with mentioning as a better pick than Oz was.

Travathan has been a real nice find and I give Elway and company kudos for that pick.
i'm really just nitpicking here. but it's Trevathan, not Travathan.
