Default Picks 12, 18, 48, 79 and 84 on the first day. How can you not be excited?

Call me an optimist, but I'm pretty stoked about things right now. We could land five new starters for the defense, and still nab a late-round RB or WR. And even with all that, we get 2 first rounders next year to maneuver for a QB if we decide we need one. Ten new impact players on the roster within the next two years? Yep, I think that's possible.

Pretty exciting.

If the market for Winslow and Shockey is a 2nd, I don't know if you get a 3rd for Scheffler. Maybe if it's in 2010 which is a good possibility.

i am telling you, don't be surprised if we take Wells in the 1st.

in fact i would bet that we will take a RB on day 1.

He's excited at the possibilities of maybe getting a player close to Cutler's ability with one of the picks...if only one of them could turn out to be that calibur...oh the prospects of that! Maybe then...just maybe...in a few years the Broncos can be competitive again!

Yes, the draft will be fun. however, expect that to be the most exciting time of the year for the next 3-5 seasons as the odds are that we will be in the top 15 picks every year over that span. Its like getting rid of the football season and living for the offseason! What fun!

Brown will be long gone before # 84

We'd be lucky to land him at # 48

I'm actually quite surprised that some of the hardcore draftniks who are in love with as many picks as possible aren't stoked about this trade...

Again you are assuming that 2 guys who have never evaluated a player or been a player in a draft war room can convert draft picks to players. At best you have something like a 75% shot with a 1st round pick to get a starter, if you are not a good drafter you have something like a 25% chance.

We could in 3 years be looking at having 1 starter to show for trading Cutler.

Color me entirely unstoked until they can prove that they can draft and develope players.

Wait, you didn't see the part about getting 5 new defensive starters. That's right, not only are both 1st rounders going to work out (even better than Jarvis Moss worked out!), we're just going to tip toe around every other team and grab all the other good players too! No busts, none!

What a joke this team has become.

Here's another thing that absolutely sucks about turning into a mediocre revenue maker.. If you consistently go 10-6 you never get good draft picks. So you have no shot at the superbowl AND you have no shot at drafting the next great franchise QB. Excellent.. this just can't get any better..

They are still staring at that authentic jay cutler jersey in the closet they bought after they snap out of it the draft threads start up.

#12) Everette Brown - DE Fla St--I like it! an edge rusher is of GREAT need for a succesful 3-4. I'd prefer Arapko but he will go top 8 if not top 3.
#18) Tyson Jackson - DE LSU--solid choice if he is still on the board @18--although--and this will upset some, I'd prefer that we draft Knowshon Moreno who I feel will be a STAR in this league.I know that RB's didn't play that big of a role in NE, but perhaps with the influence of Dennison and Turner, McD will amend that a bit.#48) Patrick Chung - S Oregon--nice--I like that guy from Utah Shawn Smith-but he is likely a 1st round choice.#79) Eric Wood - C Louisville-another good pick#84) Donald Brown- RB Uconn--no chance he is here @84

I agree with you--I was disappointed..but it is kind of fun to try and predict what direction our team will go in with the new draft choices. When given lemons, make lemonade my man........

Franchise QB is any QB you build a winning team around. The term is generic and does not apply only to Jay Cutler. The dude has lost more then he's won, throws a ton of picks, is moody, doesn't think he has more to learn bout qb, is diabetic and doesn't throw a great deep ball.

We can win with Orton or Simms if they are healthy. Cutler will be running from his life because he no longer has his franchise oline. The Bears oline stinks and Cutler is going to have a horrid yr, then try and blame the oline, ask for a new contract and probably hold out to get it.
