too bad sam brandon had those knee problems, i thought he was a very good player and could help out in the pass game against the te.

jeb had some good years

clinton was baller before ew got champ, but getting champ was awesome

chris young never lived up to his b ig brother calvin johnson

Except for getting Champ for that #2 an absolutely horrible draft. Lelie a prime example of why not to take a WR in the first round and Brandon was one of the big reasons Manning had such big days against us. The others were forgettable, even Jeb. We just like him for a little while cause we were into settling for whatever.

People love to bag on him, but Lelie was actually pretty good for us. He easily did more for us than 5 or 6 of the other first rounders we've had the last 10 years.

how is a draft horrible when it yields two starters (lelie and putz) plus the best rb den had since TD. Sonic was a homerun threat everytime he touched the ball. He gained over 1500 yards in both his Den seasons and went to a probowl? Plus brandon had a career. Davis was a chump but he didn't get cut in camp

2 DTs.....whoot!
Despite the overall phallus-esque play from this crew, I have great memories of them.

Chiefly, I can't believe it's already been ten years.

Back in 2002, my dad was just starting with his subscription to Mel Kiper's Big Blue book. Being a football nut, I wanted to know who would be the Broncos next guy. It was between Lelie and Stallworth, and I wanted the fast kid from Hawaii. He was tall, fast, and that's all that matters as an 11 year old.

So when my dad took me to the Stamford Brewing Company restaurant in Stamford, CT, it was a tremendous pleasure to see Ashley get drafted. It was my first time watching the event, and heck, I got the one guy I wanted on my team.

As much as Ashley was one dimensional, I still loved him and I have fond memories of him. Portis is one of my favorite Broncos of all time. I fell in love with him after my dad let me rent Madden 2003 from blockbuster. Portis was a mid-70's guy, but had 96 speed. Instantly my favorite Bronco. And when he blew up, forget about it. Man crush.

I always thought Brandon sucked, but it's probably because my dad always b****ed about him.

And the argument over whether his name was pronounced PUTT-zeer or POOT-zeeyay. Either way he had the best NFL career of anybody named Putz or Pootz.

I'm glad Putzier has been gone for a while now. I always felt bad for the guy. A week didn't go by without him getting the **** knocked out of him. The guy was a magnet for big hits.
