Dareus & Peterson were the guys most wanted. Von was one of the most hated picks in Broncos history.

There were some detractors, but I would say they weren't even anti-von so much as wanting a defensive tackle.

This is before he was drafted so you can get a more clear view of how people felt about Miller

Also this take from Footstepsfrom27 AKA milesfromthetruth

Quote:
They aparently think Miller is an OLB in the 4-3 based on his post season workouts, but how much did this guy ever have to drop into coverage in college? I'm extremely leery of picking a guy #2 in the draft for a position switch, which is what that is. The only two choices that make sense at #2 are Peterson and Dareus, and while I want Peterson, I'll be happy with Dareus also if they pick him. I'm not convinced a rush end who is 6'3", 245 and has to play weakside LB in a 4-3 defense is a smart option this high up. I'd rather gamble like that in the 2nd round. If Denver could somehow move down to #5, still pick up Peterson plus a 2nd from the Cards, they'd have the 2nd round ammo to go after anyone they wanted, even a move back into the top ten if they wanted Fairley for example. Or they could sit tight and draft three D-line guys in the 2nd round...lots of options better than Von Miller IMO.
This is Bob's thread making fun of the Broncos draft:

I found a quote from you about Von Miller that wasn't very nice. You should delete it

If you're going to attempt to talk smack, at least get it right.

I said Justin Houston was a better value pick than Von Miller. And he was.

What? I don't full blown no stinking Voltrons. And who is Voltron anyway? I hope it's a chick, or that's slander.

Whatever, Elway and his gagging maggototrons have to step up and WIN something besides beating up on a woeful AFC West.

Miller is a great player too, but many thought he was the 3rd best player in the draft and you picking him at 2 is probably why they put that.

Did Matt Russell hit that cop car SO ****ING hard the cop went 100 feet into a dimension previously only inhabited by Chuck Norris, thusly transforming Rob into ron?

Show me a team of value picks and I'll show you an average to below average team but then again your owner shoots for Lamar Hunt trophies and was probably OK with the flight from Korea coming up just short of the runway in San Fran

Impact players rule the NFL

Better value? Damn you would move the goalposts however you want. Do you ever get tired of being wrong?

Your the dude that said Brodie Croyle was better than Flacco. I've always called him a slightly better Mark Sanchez and yes he had a good playoff run which resulted in him getting at least 30 million bucks more than he should of. Since reading comprehension isn't your strong suit I will repeat myself again so maybe someday you will get a little bit of it. I swear it's easier to talk sense to my 6 year old than you.

Quote:
The first two weren't lucky they were Bailey getting burnt. Lucky for Denver Smith had him beat 2 other times and Flacco couldn't hit him. It took a defensive TD, winning turnover battle, getting all the terrible calls and 3 long TD's to barely win. In fact Flacco engineered zero sustained drives and marched his team down the field. Sure he made some great throws and he missed an awful lot too. 18-34 is hardly owning considering he did nothing outside the 3 long plays.

Coming from a fan base whose primary off-season conversation on their main board is focusing around the hope that Peyton Manning has neck problems.

Details on Flacco in our game:

217 yards and 2 TDs before the Hail Mary
