Default How Many Drafted Players from 06, 07, 08 Will Survive McD's Rebuilding?

Now that new Bronco Head Coach McD has shown a penchant for bringing in his own players with the recent interest of trading for QB Matt Casell, adding WR Jabbar Gaffney or long snapper Lonnie Paxton, and RB LaMont Jordan just to name a few. Will this trend continue and far will it go.

Between 2009 and 2010, which players currently on the roster that were drafted by Shanahan btwn 2006, 2007, and 2008 classes, will most likely be replaced with more Patriot cast offed players who McD will likely bring in as replacements or other Free Agents?

From the 06 draft class, Cutler is already gone, so who will be next player(s) before McD's rebuilding process is completed to longer wear the Orange n Blue? Will Lamont Jordan be the replacement for Hillis?

I know we Bronco Fans have our favorite players from the last 3 draft classes. However, these players were drafted by Shanahan and not McD. So which players would more than likely have the characteristics, personality, and talent to fit into McD's schemes both offensively and defensively.

2006 Draft

Scheffler
B Marsh
Dumerveil
Kuper

2007 Draft

Moss
Crowder
Harris
Thomas

2008 Draft

Clady
Royal
Lichtensteiger

Ryan Clady is the safest bet to not go anywhere anytime soon. Top notch LT's are a dime a dozen, probably even rarer then the "Franchise Quarterback" moniker that everyone threw around when Jay was being traded.

(Of course now that I have said that, McDaniels will probably trade Clady for another truck load of draft picks)

maybe if jordan was the player he was about 5 years ago. but now he is just another slow big back who will have trouble beating Hillis as the short yardage back.

Why would Marshall be gone? The guy is an offensive coach he's not going to ditch one of the best receivers in the game.

Because he will want to be payed like the WR he is at his best, but his play at his worst (constant suspension risk, inconsistent hands) makes that kind of payday a risk.

If players produce on the field, then they stick around just like with any other team and coach. "His players" only applies to positions that have needs and they also have to produce too.

I think 95 percent of the Marshall hate in this world exists on this board. He's not a divisive figure in the locker room and, all in all, seems like a likeable guy who still has some growing up to do (but not a bad guy). I'd lock him up long term in a second. He's our best weapon by far.

And why is it so bad to bring in players he knows. Mike Shanahan totally did that. Tons of em. One of them was Eddie McCafferey and he turned out OK. I guarentee if this board was around in 1995, people would have been b****ing about that one.

I think Jordan was a good signing, as were all the FA acquisitions.

For those cut, I was kind of hoping to see Tatum get a chance to compete after he was about the only skill player that showed he was a pro in the 12/28/08 game at SD.

He'll have to put up a really great year to have the leverage to do that. It doesn't matter anyway. With the CBA the way it is and the length of his contract he's stuck with us for the next two years no matter what. The team has all the leverage in the contract negotiations and I think they'll use it to give him a fair but reasonable deal.

Cito: Have to agree here. I would have liked to have seen Tatum get a trial because he did seem more mature when he came back. Petulance in a spoiled football player is not pretty to see, and is difficult to manage. But I thought Tatum was growing up after he had to work in the real world a bit.....

I don't get this cockeyed view here. McD has already said that Royal is the 3rd WR. Second He traded away a Qb that was able to avoid the rush in the pocket. I expect alot of zero protection and combined with a statue in the pocket i see a lot of sacks in our future. Then the blame will fall on Clady and Harris and o-line coach.

For this upcoming season ... only Tim Crowder is in serious jeopardy (he and Greg Eslinger, who finished '08 on the PS I think).
