Default Greatest pair of 4th round picks in NFL history: Marshall and Dummervil?

Can anyone recall a team drafting two studs in the 4th round in the same year like Dummervil and Marshall? And at prime positions no less. Dominik Hixon was also selected in the 4th round and he is turning out to be a quality return man.

Considering our draft history, that is an absolutely astounding accomplishment.

Way too early to make a claim like that.

Maybe a bit early, but it makes for a good conversation. At least for now. Two damn steals in the second day. Not a bad deal.

Hey. Check out the redraft grades at Walter football.
Alot of teams got high grades that year.
2006 was one of the most productive years ever for NFL talent.
And we dont even have Javon "get me my" Walker here anymore.

Grade given on 5/1/06: A+
Grade given on 7/3/07: A+
Good Moves: The Broncos made great selections during every stage of the draft. They traded up from No. 15 to No. 11 to secure quarterback Jay Cutler, who should be able to take over the starting gig by 2007. By making this move, Mike Shanahan finally conceded that it would take a miracle for Jake Plummer to take them to the Promised Land.

When Cutler becomes the starting signal caller, he will have plenty of weapons at his disposal. Shanahan traded for Javon Walker, and drafted receivers Brandon Marshall and Domenik Hixon, and tight end Tony Scheffler. One of the top selections of the entire draft came in the seventh round when the Broncos picked Greg Eslinger, a second-round prospect. Eslinger will be a staple on Denver's offensive line for years to come.

Bad Moves: I don't think defensive end Elvis Dumervil is a good pro prospect, but he was a fourth-round gamble. I say it's worth it.

July 3, 2007 Update: As I mentioned in my 2007 Quarterback Rankings, the Broncos were 2-3 when Jay Cutler started, scoring an average of 24.8 points in those contests. Despite his Spock-like haircut, Cutler looks like he'll turn out to be a solid pro. ... Tight end Tony Scheffler (2nd round) played well when Cutler was under center. ... Brandon Marshall (4th) was the No. 3 wide out last year, notching 20 receptions. ... Looks like I was wrong about Elvis Dumervil (4th); he led the team with 8.5 sacks in 2006. ... All other picks are still on the team, although Domenik Hixon (4th) looks like a waste. ... Don't forget that one of Denver's selections was used to acquire Javon Walker. I think that worked out pretty well.

Instant 2006 Starters: WR Javon Walker, TE Tony Scheffler.
Potential 2006 Starters: QB Jay Cutler.

Neither are studs at this point. One good player and one decent player.

That's a good one Bob, but more like one great player and one very good player.

I'm still standing by what I said a year ago.

Greatest 4th round in NFL history.

No he did suck at drafting. He was atrocious.

If they are only decent and good, then your whole team is crap on defense without one decent player.

Well Mobley made plays in the Superbowl so I don't worry about that one too much. But Ray Lewis would have been something.

You posted this after a 100+ catch and 13.5 sack 2nd season from both, your idiocy when it comes to football related insight knows no bounds.

Mobley was an awesome LB until injury killed his career. it wasn't like we drafted some scrub when Lewis was on the board.

why are so many incapable of spelling Dumervil's name right? he is tied for league lead in sacks, has been in Denver now 4 seasons, and our pass rush has been dependent on him his entire career?
