Default Dortohs look back at the 2006 Bronco draft class

Some of the "experts" claim it was a great sucess. Well lets take a closer look shall we.

1 11(11) Jay Cutler QB Vanderbilt - lets see first off we have a gutless drunk qb with lack of leadership skills

2 29(61) Tony Scheffler TE W Michigan - oh nice a 2nd round china doll

4 22(119) Brandon Marshall WR UCF - A greatly talented head case who beats women and will be suspended for good portion of season then want a payday.

4 29(126) Elvis Dumervil OLB Louisville - Ah a super sack master who has suddenly become afraid of getting too close to the QB's

4 33(130) Domenik Hixon WR Akron - excellent late pickup......for the giants.

5 28(161) Chris Kuper OG North Dakota - I have actually spoken to his dad good kid

6 29(198) Greg Eslinger C Minnesota - who

D-


Great draft class I just wanted to see what it was like to be a debbie downer like many a Bronco fan these days

Dumervil was a great pick in the 4th.

He just needs to be used properly. As in in the nickel and dime formations, move him around and get him paired up on the RT to utilise his burst of the LOS.

He's just not a starter, and Shanahan/Slowik's insistence of leaving him in there to be worn down on 1st down really took away from his game last year. There was the injury too, but for a guy who relies almost entirely on his immense burst it was a crime how dreadfully utilised he was last year.

Don't see him as a good OLB tbh, but he'll still be very important to us next year.

Agree 100%

I think it probably was done (his over use) due to the fact we had/have horrible depth let alone talent at the DE position.

I mean seriously Engleburger was starting.

I need a shot

cutler got us 2 first rounds,a 3rd and kyle orton. scheffler is still sick in the seam, i have a feeling he always will be. marshall will probably not get suspended if lynch is gonna get 3 games, nor should he be. kuper allowed 0 sacks last year. dumerville should be used like john abraham and his sacks will go way up, awesome 4th round pick.

107 rec. 1480 yards and a groin problem that can only be described as feeble. Although, I suspect the culprit has left town.

226 Rec. 2899 Yards and tell the truth, things were getting boring without Clarence Kay.

26 sacks almost 9 sacks a year what exactly do you want from a 4th round pick?

If this is a D- I'm afraid you're not giving yourself the wiggle room required for feedback on letís say ummm the 2003 draft.

2 Pro Bowlers, a solid starter, a very good pass catching TE, and a situational pass rusher. If we can get a b-, in your mind, this year, I would be very happy.

Yeah, looks like it's gonna be rough. As long as we finish ahead of KC and Oakland.

That '06 draft was an A or A+, no arguing there. Three full years later, and all seven are still in the league, SIX are starters. Amazing.

Any fan that thinks the team will get better with a less talented QB should have his glasses knocked off.

Completely agree... but right now, a lot of folks around here are going through the mental gymnastics required to convince themselves that Orton is somehow a better QB than Cutler. It's going to take a while for that delusion to wear off.
