Default Orakpo with 3 sacks so far today!

10 more than Ayers.

Surprising. Credit to Orakpo. He's have a fine rookie season.

I think Ayers will be fine. I think he's playing in a much more diverse, difficult defense to learn as a rookie.

I thought McD was a genius at drafting.

Well, we took Ayers after Orakpo was already off the board. So, not sure the point of the comparison.

Ayers was taken later. The only place we had a crack at taking Orakpo was at 12, which is where we took Moreno.

People don't understand that logic. Lol. Even though Moreno is probably ROTY, and a HUGE part of this team, they think Oh-crap-o would have been such a great pick.

Orakpo would have a been a good pick, no need to denigrate him. But yeah, I think people quickly forget how much Knowshon has contributed to our season after a game like today.

Of course, the question becomes whether or not one of the other RBs would have been a better selection instead of Moreno...


Don't know one way or the other.

I read that the Broncos considered Ayers at #12 and instead took Moreno HOPING that Ayers would be available at #18 (which he was). Looking back, maybe we should have taken Orakpo at #12 and someone else at #18.

He only needed 40 players on his draft board while the rest of the NFL needed hundreds. Baby McGenius!

Hey, sweet thread. Why don't you start one about Alphonso Smith too? I'm sure that would also be well thought out and original.

*edit* Start one up about Quinn while you're at it too.

If only Shanahan had let Slowick go, Cutler would still be here, BM with a new huge contract and the Broncos would be all good with Orakpo.

Woulda, coulda, shoulda...

So SHanahan was gonna pick him. I see... I wish we were 5 & 8 with a QB with 22 picks. Oh no, wait...

We would be all good with Orakpo? Are you ****ting me? We would still have Tatum Bell as our #1 back, our Defense would probably still suck. Cutler would have lost us at least 3 games too.

Beantown Bronco Rule #46:

Don't crow about "what if" and bag on McD for the pick unless you can prove that you were pining for Orakpo with the #12 pick before this past draft.
