Hey Arkie, where do you put the names together with the team jerseys?

After much deliberation, the Broncos are ready to make their selection. There were a few players we were considering with this pick, while our first choice was taken one spot ahead of us, we're not at all unhappy with plan B. Therefore........

With the 6th pick in the 2006 OM Draft, the Denver Broncos are proud to select Haloti Ngata, DT, University of Oregon.


6'5, 338 lbs.

The Broncos were happy with the depth they enjoyed on the defensive line last season, but moved up with the idea of upgrading in mind. Mike Myers was serviceable, but we feel that the combination of Ngata, alongside the (hopefully) soon to be re-signed Gerard Warren, will give us one of the top DT tandems in the NFL.

This pick was made on Sunday, February 5th at 3:50 P.M. MST.

Obviously why you shouldn't move up before knowing if the guy you really wanted was there.

CO, what did you have to give up to get to #6? Whatever it was if we gave up 22,29 for Ngata, I'd be disgusted.

For the record, if we trade up all the way to #6 I will be beyond pissed if we don't hit on an impact skill position player. I'm not saying the Ngata isn't good, but he's not worth two first round picks any way you slice it... nor is Mario Williams.


Now, on to the Faiders. They would prefer to trade down a bit here. They would've loved to get their hands on either Young or Leinart but the deals just didn't pan out. Being that there isn't a trade down to #10-13 available at the moment and it's too early to settle on Cutler, the Oakland Raiders select OLB A.J. Hawk.

A.J. is simply all over the field on defense. He absolutely flies to the football, probably better than any other player in the country, evidenced by his 141 tackles during his junior season; that’s right, 141. Hawk’s on field speed was merely reaffirmed by his 4.4 40 yard dash that he ran at the ’05 Ohio St. pro day, stealing the show from all the outgoing seniors on hand. He can cover and play the run with the best of them. The Faiders are a team that love offense, but I'm betting that even the Faiders are too stupid to miss on this pick. Unfortunately for the Broncos, the Raiders get a player that will instantly become one of the best LB's in the entire AFC, let alone the AFC West.


Selection made at 5:10 pm (CST), Feb 5, 2005.

Then I guess you'll be disgusted because that's what I gave up, 22 & 29. I wanted to grab an impact player at a desired position and Ngata was up there with Mario Williams & LenDale White on my board.

I didn't feel the need to be conservative and wait to see who fell. The Broncos don't have gaping holes to fill and now have a potential franchise player at DT. The strength of Jacksonville's defense is the interior of their defensive line with Stroud & Henderson. If Ngata lives up to his potential, he & Warren will wreak havoc up front for us as those two do for the Jags.

Ngata is good like I said, but if you think that we're benefiting more from a move like this than say staying put at 22 and 29 and drafting the likes of Ko Simpson/Michael Huff and Bunkley/Wright... well I disagree. I'd much rather take the chances on those two guys rather than just one early on.

Not trying to offend you CO, we're just doing this for fun anyhow remember!!!

It's all cool, the only reason I was trading up is beacause this is all for fun. If this was realistic team building, it makes plenty more sense to stay put and fill two needs.

At the same time, Ngata would look real good in the middle of our line. I think we'll get a good look at him next season because I can see the Fade grabbing him with the 6th/7th pick.

Just for the record, the rights to AJ Hawk are available. Still lookind for a pick right around 13. Will send Hawk to a team in exchange for the 1st and either a 2nd or 3rd round pick.

NFL Shop, but the Jets don't have an authentic jersey on this site to preview. I used the replica, but it looks like $@#@!

Wow, lots of people want to trade down, but it seems that there aren't many takers.

I wonder if that will be true for the actual draft?

In this draft with all the depth I would say yes.

I think its a trendy thing for the team managers so far. People already trying to trade down there second round picks and we are not even through the top ten of the first round.

So Bills have what, 10 minutes.

(I have a hard time understanding why anyone takes 24 hours. When my pick is up whoever is behind me may as well be ready - probably won't take more than 15 minutes - unless of course it's the middle of the night.)
