I voted Kuper. None of the other candidates have their fathers posting here. That's got to count for something.

Funny I was looking at the list & 2 of these guys had sons that I know very well from high school. Ken Lanier's son Dwayne played football with me in HS. A giant offensive lineman 6'6" 330. But he was soft as a baby's booty but I can't hate on him he was a real nice person. Last I heard he got a scholarship to play at South Florida. Don't think he ever found his mean streak.
Le-Lo Jr is still a friend of mine. He was a hooper but wasn't ever into sports as much as the ladies or his music. He's back in LA producing now doing real well.
Anyways I know I sidetracked from the thread but I'm only old enough to remember Kuper out of those guys on the poll. But both Ken Lanier & Le-Lo Lang were real nice guys and very hospitable towards my friends and I. For that I gave Mr. Lanier my vote.
P.S. Le-Lo Jr's stepmom is fiiiiiinnnneee!!! Props to Mr. Lang haha

I'll go ahead and preempt the thread and say that the greatest 5th round pick in Broncos history would have been whoever we pick next Sunday, but McD was pro-choice and aborted his ass and now we can all only wonder about what could have been.
McPoopy. The end.

I voted for Rubin Carter, but I always thought Kenny Lanier had an underrated career.
Sammy Winder is one of my all-time favorite Broncos, but he was a slightly above average RB who had a few good years....loved the Mississippi Mud Dance though.
I still remember having the Sports Illustrated with Winder on the cover on my bedroom wall when I was a kid.

No Jeff Shoate option? I mean, he kind of slowed down Marshawn Lynch's progress to endzone...
