Default No mention of CJ Spiller?

I don't recall McDaniels talking about Spiller.

After listening to the interview, I don't think Broncos will be taking spiller, and they'll be looking to take someone that can contribute right away full time at the 11th pick.

SMH @ the reporters at the press...

IIRC, he dismissed the idea of taking a RB early.

Should we even be dissecting what an NFL football coach says about the draft a week before the draft? It's all smokescreen at this point.

Why would we consider Spiller when we just took Moreno last year?

Why should Tennessee have considered Chris Johnson when they took LenDale White 2 years earlier?

12th overall is a much higher pick than 45th overall. 11th overall is much higher than 24th overall. The Titans had twice as long to evaluate White as we have to evaluate Moreno.

Because after two seasons they saw that LenDale White wasn't the guy they could rest the franchise on.

because spiller is a playmaker...

regardless of who is on your roster, you don't want to be in the business of passing on playmakers...

i wouldnt be surprised if his dismissal of a RB early was a smokescreen...

Cause LenDale was a 2nd round pick and had 2 years, little different than spending the 12th overall pick and admitting mistake 1 year later.

With the 11th pick, there are plenty of potential playmakers available, lets get a playmaker at a position that we need.

we don't know that Spiller is a "play maker" at the NFL level than any other player we could draft at a position we need. Spending first round picks, two years in a row, for a RB (the easiest position to fill) is the last thing this team needs.

Thank goodness we aren't considering him.

Dont know who is listening to what, but Josh said there is no difference in evaluating taking a RB at 11.

And he DID mention Spiller as one of the players they've had in.

In fact, I listened to this interview, and Im thinking, 'every coach thinks about what hes going to say, not say in these positions'. I honestly think he pumped up McClain hoping someone else will take him ahead of them.

When mentioning Spiller, he miscued somewhat. He seemed to get a little nervous.

Spiller is in play, and if hes the top rated guy on the board, they will take him at 11.

IF of course, he was telling the truth when he said they will take the top rated player regardless of position according to their draft board.

Only players not coming off the board for us are going to be tackles at 11.

yeah.. because if we don't take Spiller, it means he was lying about his taking the highest rated player on THEIR board, and not the fact that he wasn't rated to take in the first round.

White was the 45th pick. Not exactly the same as using the #10 pick and then using another first rounder the year after.

And what would the Spiller lovers say this time next year if he is less then stellar during his first year and once again, there is another intriguing RB type who is a big playmaker. Do we have this discussion all over again. There will be those of us who say, for godsake, we can't draft a RB with our 1st pick 3 years in a row. Uh, so the argument they support this year will not have any legs to stand on the following year either. You go with best player available and don't worry about what you did in the past. Cool. Just good to know that some of you think there's no problems in drafting a RB in the first round every single year.

there are some defensive playmakers...

but there will be maybe two playmakers on offense avaliable that grade that high...dez bryant and cj spiller...our offense has no playmakers so we really could use a playmaker on the offensive side of the ball...

and i am hoping dez bryant is not our target...

this is what I am thinking as well. With Marshall gone and Sheff on the block, who are our playmakers besides royal and maybe moreno? The only two elite playermakers are spiller and Bryant. And I don't think we target Bryant.

Folks, it's looking alot like Joe Haden could be the pick. I don't think we are going with Dez or Spiller and unless one of those tackles falls down to us, he could be the BPA. Thomas is starting to move up on the boards also. Mayock like Thomas more then he does Berry, not by much, but some. He could be the pick also.

Not that I want Spiller.. but Carolina did it as well with Williams and Stewart. Their running game is pretty good. But we need O-Line first. Fast backs come a dime a dozen. Tatum Bell anyone? No seriously.. if we get our line up to par.. I'll take him back.. he'll be cheap.. and he can run!

I like the sound "defensive playmakers" a lot more than pretty much admittimg to the entire world that we screwed the pooch on last years first round draft pick of Knowshon Moreno.

So you even mentioned Moreno as a possible playmaker and still want Spiller? that honestly makes no sense to say"our 1st round draft pick last year at RB can turn in to a playmaker but I say we grab another RB in the 1st round to see if he can turn into a playmaker as well."

Williams and Stewart is a hell of a lot better example than LenDale and Johnson.

just because we draft cj spiller that doesnt mean moreno is a bust...it just means spiller was the bpa...

many teams use two backs now...

when the vikings drafted AD it didnt mean they thought their free agent prize chester taylor was suddenly a bum...they just couldnt pass up a playmaker like AD...

Its funny, Alphonso Smith was the ultimate playmaker in college. Yet many people on this board think he's complete trash now.

That, and the fact that no one thought Chester Taylor as a starting tailback.
