Default Draft Picks in 2010???

Sounds like there will be a coin flip between us and the Jags for #10 and #11. Our pick to Seattle is #14.

Thoughts.

The season could not have ended any worse (other than starting 2-4 and finishing with 4 wins).

Bears win out and take the pick from 8 to 11 (worse case scenario).

Our pick to Seattle is an absolute disaster. This pick went from the high 20's to the low 20's and then to the mid teens. If anything, I hope this teaches McD a lesson. I guess if Smith was a stud I would feel better. I wonder if McD thought Smith could be a starter in 2010 opposite Goodman. This way, we would have had more leverage when asking Baily to take a pay cut. Unfortunately, it did not turn out this way.

One positive with our pick is we move up in the 2nd-7th rounds. We should be able to get a good player in the mid 2nd (with all the juniors coming out).

Does anyone else have any thoughts concerning the situation?

I think we will get another pick for Marshall, but who knows where it will be or who wants him.

2010 NFL Draft Order

For the first time ever, the top 20 picks in the NFL Draft will be made up exclusively of teams that didn't make the playoffs. The playoff teams will make up the final 12 picks, depending on results.

Ties in record are broken by strength of schedule. Ties in strength of schedule can be broken by division or conference tiebreakers, but those weren't applicable in the top 20 this year.

Three ties will be determined later based on a coin flip. We've starred any picks that still need a coin flip. Here goes:

1. St. Louis (1-15)
2. Detroit (2-14)
3. Tampa Bay (3-13)
4. Washington (4-12)
5. Kansas City (4-12)
6. Seattle (5-11)
7. Cleveland (5-11)
8. Oakland (5-11)
9. Buffalo (6-10)
10t. Denver (Traded from Chicago) (7-9)
10t. Jacksonville (7-9)
12. Miami (7-9)
13. San Francisco (8-8)
14. Seattle (Traded from Denver) (8-8)
15. New York Giants (8-8)
16t. Tennessee (8-8)
16t. San Francisco (Traded from Carolina) (8-8)
18. Pittsburgh (9-7)
19t. Atlanta (9-7)
19t. Houston (9-7)

Picks 21-24 will be the wild card round losers. Picks 25-28 will be the divisional round losers. Picks 29-30 will be the conference championship losers. Pick 31 will be the Super Bowl loser. Pick 32 will be the Super Bowl winner.

As with everything else this season things ended badly... The Bears pick is not as big of a deal, but the A. Smith trade looks real bad. Now obviously if smith turns into a player then his draft position doesn't matter. Unfortunately if he continues to struggle this trade will continue to look worse and worse.

I asked this question in another thread, but havn't gotten an answer. What compensation will we receive if someone else signs Marshall?

Depends on the CBA and whether or not he becomes a RFA.

he will be a RFA and be tendered, what they tender him is still to be seen but has been speculated a high tender which I believe is a 1st and 3rd

I love the new drafting format. That's the way it should always have been.

It could have been alot worse, if it weren't for that 6-0 start. The worst move McDaniels made was trading that pick. Worst draft choice trade since Red Miller traded a future #1 for qb Matt Robinson (Robinson only lasted 1 year in Denver)

At least in 2010 if the Broncos stink we'll have a very early #1 draft choice (I doubt McD will trade 2010's #1)

And it'll likely be way too much of a person of his caliber, so it all balances out.

1st and a 3rd for the right to pay the next T.O. (including all the team damaging bull****) over $9M a season sounds like a hell of a deal to me.

I highly doubt were going to get a 1st and a 3rd... Every team is well aware that Brandon and McDaniels can not co-exist. The odds are they will all wait to see if we cut him or just fan the flames and see how he reacts to his RFA tender.

We might get lucky, but I'm not real confident in that right now.

I doubt we cut him. We will keep him to prove a point. I think McD would relish this. Pay him 3 million a year to stay home (suspended every week or whatever). Heck, we may not have to pay him if he acts like a true ass. Should be fun to watch.

I don't think they want to deal with this powder keg anymore... It wouldn't shock me if they did cut him. I doubt they will but it wouldn't shock me.

If you think Denver's front office is stupid enough not to get at least 1st and 3rd value for Marshall then you haven't been around long enough to know how they work.

Infact if a CBA is done, Marshall will be franchised, if he isn't everyone involved in the Broncos set-up should be ****ed off out the door.

Wasn't the Cutler/McDaniels relationship on the same footing yet we had teams queueing up to land JC, now I'm not saying we're going to get anywhere near the same value but young WR's who catch 100 balls a year and reach pro-bowls come at a high price.

Furthermore you do not cut a player of his value just because he throws a strop or quits on his team, what on earth kind of example is that to give any player who becomes unhappy with his surroundings. We groomed him, we developed him and we deserve the appropriate compensation regardless of how big a Me-Me a-hole he really is.

It wouldn't be surprising to me if Marshall and Scheffler were cut outright.

The new regime seems more interested in making a point rather than making a sound decision.

And that has other teams licking their chops.

Cutler wasn't one off field issue away from a 8 game suspension. Nor did McDaniels suspend cutler twice the previous season.

So no, I don't see any similarities between the 2 scenarios.

But I do agree that Brandon has good value, I'm just not sure we are going to get it.

Just put the Franchise tender on him, then it is 2 1st rounders.

I agree with everything you said. Marshall has been on worse standing in Denver prior to this and it is not a given that he is gone. Mcdaniels strong armed him last year and it worked out.

The bad example was set last year when the Jay Cutler fiasco exploded like a can of baked beans left in direct sunlight, it showed that if you are difficult enough you can get out. Marshall knows this and he knows that the team is in a position where they can't keep him against his will much longer, at most we get 1 more year at about 3.5 million and then it is bye bye.

This is a bad year for trades since many teams who carry around big contracts with underperforming players will cut them since there is no cap hit to consider, so the free agent market will be richer than ever and with teams like the Giants and Redskins not making the playoffs there will be quite a bit of money going around.

Am I the only one around here that:

A - Doesn't think Alphonso Smith is awful

B - Wasn't expecitng a rookie on this roster to play a ton with Bailey and Goodman as the starters

C - Assumed it would take a year or two for him to develop?

Why would they even begin to think about cutting him He is worst at least 2 draft picks.

I would expect the bidding to increase and an 11th hour deal is cut

Please. Think about this rationally. Somebody will trade for him. Or he'll be tagged and forced to play. And play at a high level if he wants to get a real contract.

Teams will give up the value to ensure they land him just like they did with Cutler. If you think you have a chance to get a player of that caliber you don't wait around. You go out and do it and if you win you're a genius. If you fail you're ****ed. But you always try. There will always be a coach out there that will be willing to treat them with kid gloves and let them get away with anything they want.
