Default Horrible Draft So Far

This draft has been an abortion. Letting Fox and Del Rio hand pick a DT, a position they know nothing about, was rediculous. Letting Elway hand pick a QB was also a dumb move, what would he know about what it takes to be a successful QB in the NFL? And picking a RB? Elway never played with a good RB when he was in Denver and Fox and Del Rio never had good RBs when they were head coaches at CAR and JAX. So upset you guys.

Shut up and start thinking logically. The logical choice was use the mock drafts on the Orangemane and as your draftboard.

I like Hillman personally. Brings some explosiveness to the offense.

Wolfe is a position of need so I'm just a little frustrated.

Osweiler is ****.

People just need to relax and see how things pan out, unless you are drafting in the top 10 ever player is a crap-shoot.

I have no idea if the guys will be good. However I can see we are not getting value. If you want these guys get them. But don't pay porsche prices for a Honda.

I honestly don't understand why the front office didn't follow the Internet draft boards. I mean, if all the Internet gurus agree with each other, why not follow them?

I swear Elway could start torturing babies on the front steps of Dove Valley with razor blades and pliers, and there would still be people supporting him, saying he was doing the right thing and that he knew best. It's unreal...

I know right? What has he ever done for this franchise? He's not even qualified to be the face of the Broncos.

I'm pretty sure he makes all decisions for the franchise which makes me want to puke.

well at least the chuggers didn't do so well either, oh, wait:

Walterfootball: San Diego Chargers (Last Year: 8-8)

2012 NFL Draft Individual Grades:

18. Melvin Ingram, DE/OLB, South Carolina: A+ Grade
Melvin Ingram was mocked as high as No. 7, so the Chargers are getting incredible value with him at the 18th slot. He also fills a big need; San Diego desperately needed a pass-rusher. This is one of the top picks in the 2012 NFL Draft thus far.

49. Kendall Reyes, DE/DT, Connecticut: A- Grade
This pick doesn't really fill an immediate need, but the Chargers are getting really good value with Kendall Reyes, who was projected by some to be a late first-round possibility. Picking a better non-need over an inferior need is usually the way to go though.

73. Brandon Taylor, S, LSU: B+ Grade
This is a solid pick. Brandon Taylor fits the range and fills a huge need at safety. The Chargers haven't had a stud strong safety since Rodney Harrison. Taylor legitimately has a chance to be just that.

At least we an still take comfort in the Chiefs drafting Poe at #11.

I think the Broncos are in for a rude awakening with their belief this is a Super Bowl ready team.

No kidding.. Don't the Broncos have dozens of college scouts evaluating players every week.

If the talking heads and mock draft magazines were so good, then there would be no need to pay a scouting department.

Its not the players we drafted that bothers me. Its the terrible trafe value we got for all 3 trades. Also how we reached for 2 maybe 3 guys. Its embarrassing.

Show me where Jack Elway got John Elway to draft his friend... I'm sure John talked to his son about Osweiler, but I doubt it was about football.. it was probably more about his character.

Yes, I'm sure we drafted a player we had zero need for higher than he should have ever gone for reasons completely separate from said player being best friends with the son of the VP of Football Operations.

Tell me, do you also believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny?

From what I recall.. Mayock didn't have anything bad to say... he was pretty positive.. but he was positive about every draft pick.
