EFX has no clue on how to play a game. And lets get it right the draft is a game with 32 players. We have consistently given too much to move up. the 120 pick vs GB going 10 picks higher for the 163rd. Then they are taking players who are not in jeopardy of being taken. If I played poker with these guys I would have Elways super bowl rings. Its absolutely a travesty, they need some help. I don't even care if the players are not who I would have taken. The players are only half the equation.

That's the feeling I get as well. I just think they're trying to play the trade back game but they really don't want to miss their guys so they're overly willing to trade back but then the anxiety gets them and they'll overpay to get up. They want their guys and I don't have an issue with that.

Definitely head scratchers, but I'm not gonna say they are dumb picks yet. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt right now.

It not even about the picks. Who can say now. But knowing how to get where you are going is a skill. Its Xanders he has no clue how to make trades. It has been like this for a few years.

It does feel like they may be outsmarting themselves overall.

I agree.. the talk was the Broncos needed a DT and RB.. well they got them, but the question is did the Broncos draft them to high? Does it matter if they can contribute. Seems they were production in college.

The Broncos have been high on the ASU QB.. I guess they figured better to draft him when they had the opportunity.. But then again was it too high ?

It's not so much the player, but the position. Did we really need to spend a 2nd rounder on a guy we hope doesn't start a game for us for at least 3 years?

Then we pick guys way earlier than the group think has them rated. Look at the grades. If you are the only team way outside of the group think then you are paying to much. Even if you want those guys, why pay so much more than the market requires?

We actually got a good deal to move up.
67 = 255

87 = 155
120 = 54

This is pretty embarrassing.

We're getting handled in trades and selecting players at least 1 round early.

The Broncos take a QB who is a major project to sit and learn an offense he probably won't see since a Manning offense won't be his offense and then they trade up to get a 3rd down type RB? I was ok with trading down and then taking Wolfe, but everything else pretty much blows IMO. Like I mentioned, they really do think they have a Super Bowl ready team, so just need parts and not players to produce. Good luck with that Elway.

at all the arm chair gms saying Elway and the Broncos need a better front office. The front office is kicking ass IMO. Broncos improved the team this offseason a great deal. Also I like Wolfe, he's athletic and IMO can get sacks in the NFL with Doom and Miller on the outside.

The Broncos trading back and up remind me of Tebow doing reverse spin moves in the pocket.
