Default Where are they now? McHoodie's draft class of 2009.

Josh McDaniels' first draft class as Broncos coach, the 2009 group, included 10 players. Only three remain with the team. "I feel like I have to perform for myself and my family, but the draft class comes along with it, because we don't want to be seen as that bust class," said safety David Bruton. What happened to the Broncos' draft class of 2009:


STILL IN DENVER

No. 12 pick overall, running back Knowshon Moreno: Nearly recovered from an ACL injury suffered last season, Moreno is competing for the No. 2 or No. 3 tailback job.

No. 18, defensive end Robert Ayers: A starter last year, Ayers is now playing with the second-team base defense and should be part of the Broncos' defensive line rotation.

No. 114, safety David Bruton: Fighting for a backup job on defense, Bruton remains a top special-teams contributor.


OFF THE ROSTER

No. 37, cornerback Alphonso Smith: Traded to Detroit at the end of the 2010 preseason for tight end Dan Gronkowski.

No. 48, safety Darcel McBath: Cut by the Broncos after training camp last season. Now with the 49ers, he will play against the Broncos on Sunday.

No. 64, tight end Richard Quinn: Cut by the Broncos at the end of the 2011 preseason, Quinn is playing for Mike Shanahan and the Redskins.

No. 129, guard Seth Olsen: Released by the Broncos in 2010, Olsen now plays for the Colts.

No. 141, wide receiver Kenny McKinley: Died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 2010.

No. 171, quarterback Tom Brandstater: Cut by the Broncos before training camp in 2010. Spent last season on the Rams' practice squad.

No. 225, center Blake Schlueter: Didn't make the Broncos or the practice squad as a rookie in 2009.

The "we don't need a big draft board" effect. If they were at the top of his stubbornly narrow sighted board he was going for them regardless of who was still available.

I thought McBath would be a good S. Injuries and coaching changes ruined any chance he had.

Where are all the McDi******ers who were attacking us for opposing him? You got what you deserved.

Popps disappeared, Tsiguy is no longer chief of the fan police anymore. CBF1 can **** off too for that.

Man that era was depressing. Feels good not to be the joke of the league anymore.

even guys mCd brought in in FA or Trade are gone.

Orton
Voltron

Mays is still here and still sucking

Anyone remember Ty Law?

How many CB's did mCd bring in who are gone now?

People laughed at the turnover after Shanny left but mCd's turn over is more telling especially since he was only here 18 months and there are only about 4 of the guys he brought in left after all that turn over.

If I saw McDaniels in the street, I would probably try and fight him. Seriously, **** that guy. This draft was awful. I called the Moreno bust long before he ever donned the Broncos gear. Can't believe we jumped on that handgrenade. Or Quinn... or McBath. Good god.

I still remember the arrogance from that ****, his pseudo front office and all the Shanny haters who positioned themselves as McDaniels lovers just to prove their point. They epicly failed. Thank god Bowlen and co. wised up. That was an awful experiment. "I ONLY NEED A 60 PLAYER BOARD GOING INTO THE DRAFT, WE'RE BUCKING THE TREND!"

We would have been really bad off if Bowlen didn't see his mistake and fix it after 18 months (of Pure HELL). I am sure the cheating scandal was what hastened mCd's departure, if that didn't break we could have had to endure one more year of his incompetence and missed out on a quality HC like John Fox.

Have we ever had a draft class with that many players and was a draft that bad?

Two 1st and two 2nd rounders in one draft and maybe only one of those guys will make our team this year.

Traded a 4th rounder for Maronay a month before Lynch got traded for a 4th.

on the plus side. the epic **** up that was the McDaniels era allowed us to move into the Elway era. he's revamped the team, brought in Peyton Manning and has the team on a path to be a contender for multiple seasons.

all in the same time span that it took McDaniels to turn us into an XFL franchise.

I think he did the same thing last offseason, he lived his life then came back here after the season started. I put him on Iggy for awhile because he was a broken record, was bitter and didn't add any value. I saw some of his posts pop up as blocked not too long ago so I don't think he left. Might have got tired about backing the wrong people though but that is pure speculation. I figured he found better things to do than try to be right about everything all the time. I wish him well, even took him off Iggy, we will see how long that lasts.

So Popps liked McD and disappears when the Broncs get Manning?? That is crazy.

funny that a thread about McD's personnel moves, peyton hillis and jay cutler weren't mentioned.

I was thinking about the above a couple of weeks ago when Den was playing Chi...this really made me re-consider the McD/cutler fiasco. At the time, I put all the blame on cutler being a petulant infant. Since McD has shown a pattern of consistently doing the wrong thing, personnel wise, it makes me re-consider that stance. Maybe cutler isn't such a douche after all.
