Broncos would've been screwed next year in FA if Shane Ray had another bad year. This is BY FAR the best thing that could've happened to the Broncos.

A great offense can make you contenders for a decade They aren't making rule changes to make it harder to score points.
With a very rare QB talent. Are you suggesting that the QBs in this draft are Brady great? How many QBs have made teams contenders for 10 years? Three maybe in the NFL right now? You are dreaming.

We upgraded QB. If we get a solid RB in the 2nd round, with our improved defense, we'll be solid. You are living in a fantasy land if you think one of those QBs would have made us instant SB favorites. And in fact, maybe 1 or 2 will be great long term QBs. So it's a gamble regardless.

He shouldn't be seeing any double teams in the blocking schemes. Especially with Wolfe on the other side. This pick creates all kinds of possibilities across the defensive front. Great pick IMO

Do you have any confidence that this team can get a lead? That they can defend the run? Who on this offense can you say for sure will be here in five years? How does Keenum do better here without a stable offensive line, a threat at TE or a RB that can catch out of the back field or get you that tough 2 yards.

Oh how I hope I'm wrong. But do you want to take a wager on how often one of the franchise pass rushers is dropped in coverage by this coaching staff?

Not unless they were willing to give us both 1's and a 2nd. They only gave up 2 2's to get their guy. It just wasn't there.

If you pick top 5, you draft qb, lt, pass rusher, lock down cb. End of story.

I was all for a QB, but if we didnt go QB, it had to be Chubb. This is a homerun pick by Elway.

Just curious, you thing Keenum is the answer? That he's here in three years?

Didn't he just pilot a defensive focused team to the NFC championship?

The bestest part of this pick is how Dou..Mac will crrryyy, because the Broncos had no chance to pick his secret lover, and he can't criticize the Broncos for their pick. Heehee...

Browns did a big favor to the Broncos for taking Ward at pick 4 (Ward isn't a top 10 pick IMO). Chubb pick is great. If Chubb had gone #4 I heard the Bills weren't offering their two #1's to move up to the Broncos pick (just something similar to what they offered for pick 7)
