thats been my feeling all along. Freeney has been on the speed dial until after the draft.

Like Brown? I think the Ravens are much better than the Broncos at evaluating prospects. We got bent there. I don't mind the Ball pick though.

I dont think so...i think he'd get selected sometime between now and our next pick. Its not like they picked a QB here. He'll come in right away and contribute

On the phone call to Ball, John Elway told him "We were biting our fingernails for about 3 hours." Video to come soon.

not ITT, but I'm pretty sure I can draft better than the Bills or Browns of the past decade

I really dont have a problem with the pick and given Lacy's injury history he's the best back on the board. Obviously Elway/Fox wanted him so let's see how it pans out. They've kept every draft pick on the roster bar one in the last 2 drafts.

How can you say its a desperation pick? If they didn't thi8nk Ball was any good they would have drafted Lacy. I love Ball, he is quicker and faster than Lacy plus he catches the ball better. He reminds me of Emmett Smith.

We needed a young grinder. Hillman doesn't have it to be an every down back. Moreno is useless and McG's tread is all but gone. Conceivable to grab another RB before draft is done.

For all we know Brown probably wasn't that high on Denver's board. He'd be a real project as a 4-3 MLB, totally different playing 3-4 ILB

Guy runs hard between the tackles. Doesn't shy from contact and doesn't run out of bounds. Really the complete opposite of Moreno that most on here hate. So why the hate for the pick

Watch Moore drop to out 3rd now, lol....

If he can pick up a 3rd and 1 I'm down with it. Lord knows no rb on this team can.

I thought that the Falcons wanting a CB was smoke screen and the really wanted Moore.
