Default Do you draft Bryant now? If so....

...what do you think of that idea?

You know what's sad? Even with us trading Brandon to Miami, we still have better receivers than KC does.

Not really. But okay.

If you wanted to avoid the question, you could have just not responded at all.

Apparently, Bryant is going to be playing catch with Tebow at Dove Valley today. Could happen.

Hopefully the diva WR circus doesn't start all over again if we pick him.

Yes really.

I would rather Denver build their lines before going after more receivers. Mike Shanahan tried to get the skill positions first and then build an o-line...didnt work. So lets try it the other way around.

I would be shocked if we brought in a guy with his baggage right after getting rid of Marshall for his behavioral issues. Hell no, we should not draft Bryant! There are a bunch of quality receivers rated in the second round. That is where the value is at WR in this class.

No.

WR is the most overrated position in the NFL. I'd rather have Spiller/Iupati/Pouncey.

I keep hearing this Tebow/Bryant rumor and while it would be great PR, i wont some big dudes on our lines. Great receivers dont win championships, great lines do.

Yes. All kidding aside, I hope 2 of the 3 picks within 45 are spent on the lines. I would love to trade back from 11 and pick up Iupati and Pouncey.

I wonder where Bryant goes now?

Dez Bryant would have been a great complement to Brandon Marshall.

Drafting him now just means you have an offense where a slow wide receiver and a slow running back are your two top "threats."

Brandon Marshall wasnt exactly fast for the record.

McClain @ #11 and a WR like Benn in the second round.
i don't know why but i'm starting to feel that Denver is gonna take Tebow in the late 2nd or 3rd.

He was a big play threat.

Right now the Broncos have none.

Bring on Dez Bryant........yes! Say what you want but he's the only receiver in the draft with huge big play potential. Put a protection clause in his contract and tell him to lose the entourage

Drafting a linebacker with your top pick would be hilarious.

Right now you guys need CJ Spiller but taking two running backs in the first round in back to back years is highly unlikely. Even so, he'd give you a player opponents are scared of.

Too bad you didn't take Percy Harvin last year....imagine Harvin and Spiller on the same offense.

Wrong. Shanahan built an outstanding offensive line for the ZBS...best in the league.

He added great atheletes to the skill positions.

His demise was Defense!

I think WR is the least of our worries or at least one of them. The receivers we have can still save Orton's ass. A HUGE HELL NO to Bryant. We can get a very good receiver in later rounds.

No one is scared of your current receivers.

Kyle Orton + nothing at receiver = offensive death.

You said lines and if you want Iupati and Pouncey, which I agree with, then the other one should go towards DL. But I'm wondering if Bryant goes into the second round if McD isn't considering him now. I really hope not.
