Default Okay, Who's the One Player...

Here goes. It's draft day. Something like Christmas morning in the football world. The presents are under the tree. Some of them have your team's name on the them. When you open those presents, what is the one name you really want to see, and the one name you really don't want to see?

My number one that I would like to see is Rey Maualuga. I want a playmaker back on the Broncos. Somebody who blows people up and gets the fans to jump to their feet. I want to see that disruptor in the O&B. I really wanted Polamalu bad and begged that Shanny would trade up for him, but the Broncos just didn't have the juice at the time to make that trade. I want somebody like that on the Broncos.

The guy I really don't want to see announced by the Broncos is BJ Raji. Everything I've read about the guy rings alarm bells that he gets the big paycheck and gets fat and lazy and won't play when he's got a hangnail.

So who are yours?

Id like Denver to get Alex Mack. I know its not going to happen. It seems more likely it would be someone like Eric Wood, but I think Mack can give us that meanness at the tip of the spear. Who I dont want depends on where he's picked. I dont want Ayers at 12 or Cushing. But Sanchez is at the top of the list of players I definitely dont want.

So for me its:
want: Beanie Wells, Alex Mack
d/w: Sanchez, Ayers, Cushing

What if Denver took one of the guys you like but also one of the guys you dont like? Would you be cool with that?

Curry, obviously... but to be realistic, Jackson. My 2nd pick hope would be that Brown could slip to us.

As long as we go LB/DL in the first two picks, I'm a happy guy.

My worst nightmare involves taking something like a CB, RB, WR or TE in the first round.

Dont want - Any offensive player in the first two rounds.

Re. Would you be cool with One player you want and one you don't, yes witha few conditions. The O player taken needs to be a RB, not with the first pick, and the other two picks must address the line.

CHIEFS LEANING TYSON JACKSON?
Posted by Mike Florio on April 25, 2009, 12:33 p.m.
As the draft approaches, more and more folks are pegging the Chiefs as taking LSU defensive end Tyson Jackson with the third overall selection.

The folks at ESPN are all over the possibility, and Mike Mayock of NFLN has had Jackson shooting up the board.

It seems a little high, but if the Chiefs use the pick and not trade it, Jackson is looking to be the guy, not Aaron Curry.

Jackson would be counted on to become a Richard Seymour-style presence in the 3-4 defense the Chiefs are incorporating, as the so-called “five technique” defensive end.

Want- Rey-Rey (real bad), Jackson, Cushing

Avoid- Maybin (BUST!!) or any CB on the first day

also not real high on Raji (I, also think he'll be an underperformer, and don't see how he would fit in as a "cornerstone" to a defense. He seems to be like a guy that want the glory of the DE's (sacks), but plays DT)

I can't help it, I want Rey Maualuga to be a Bronco. That is the number one guy for me. Next would be Knowshon Moreno, even though D is a much bigger priority. They are just my favorite players in the draft, I love watching them play.


I don't want a QB, TE, or WR in the first 3 rounds
