Default I can't believe we were able to get get 2 top 5 ranked WRs and still address the OL

Wow I must say I was a little shaken up by the Tebow pick, I still don't think its a good pick bad value but I like the kid and now that hes a Bronco I will support him and I hope he pans out to be great!

So tebow pick aside WOW @ McDaniels and X these dudes really nailed it



Mike Mayock had D.Thomas ranked 2 and he had Erick Decker ranked 5. Thomas fills the deep threat vertical guy role and hes big strong and physical, Eric Decker fills the possession role and is big strong and physical, looks like we finally might see Eddie Royal being used like Wes Welker at least thats what you would hope.

Zane and JD grabbing these 2 for the o-line wow, awesome they fell right into our laps

again amazing draft now spend the rest on the defense or a kr and it will be a A+ draft for me even despite the Tebow pick. I really can't see how anyone can knock our 2nd day.

A couple risky picks and some safer picks. Nice mix I must say.

Fact is, the Broncos are a better team with all these picks. Oline was addressed as well as offensive scoring. Both the running game and the passing game just got better despite how you rate Tebow. Me likey.

I like this draft so far - even with the Tebow pic which is slowing growing on me.

At the very least Tebow could be a wildcat goal line guy his first season like Mike Vick was for the eagles, except Tebow is actually built up and will be hard to stop, is it gimmicky sure but who cares we had trouble getting into the endzone.

I really think McD wants Tebow to be the team leader. I think he'll be given every opportunity to compete for the starting postion. I think Tebow has the potential to be the next Steve Young type of QB. There's been unconventional QBs that have won at the highest levels in the NFL and certainly Tebow fits into that mold.

That's what I'm thinking/hoping for as well.

I am happy with this draft. Thomas could be a big-time WR without the off field drama Marshall provided. Decker is a tough WR with nice size.

I am not sold on Tebow as a QB, but there's no doubt he can be a very effective runner/ catcher with the ball, so it's not like he wouldn't be of any use if doesn't make it at QB.

The 2 OL I'm happy with as well. Bigger and tougher than what they had previously inside, but also can move too.

I think you have to be so much in hate with McDaniels to at least not be somewhat happy with this draft.

What could make it work is Tebow probably pretty physical and athletic. You might be able to acually throw it to him if he lines up at WR and Moreno taking the snap in some wildhorse thingamabob. He probably can block some also. It's a strange pick, but we will see what happens.

Tebow is sort of a gamer. You can't count out guys like that.

I think we will use Tebow like everyone mentioned, but we will groom him to be QBOTF in the next few years. At least you hope so. LEt him have an immediate impact as a wildcat/SLASH kinda guy, and groom him for the future at same time.
It's actually pretty genius if you ask me.

Steelers did that with Kordell Stewart and it was very effective.

Love this draft. At first I was skeptical of the Tebow pick but I think if there is anyone who can make him into a top flight QB its McD.

Lets get some DL tomorrow.

Have to agree with this. What better way to get him used to the speed of the game than to have him play but without the pressure of the starting QB?

I'll get on the Tebow bandwagon. I'm not as concerned about his throwing motion as everyone else. I think he will work on that and he has a strong arm.

My concern is his ability to read defenses and ability to look the safety off. He's seems to be a little bit of a fred flintstone type dude.

I would have took Ducasse over Beadles...but, at least it's a guard and I love the Walton pick.

Decker is a nice possession receiver with strong hands...but, injury prone?

I give our draft a B+

I absolutely love the Thomas pick!!!

McDaniels has been able to make a couple of picks that saved him from my wrath.
First of all, I love the Tebow pick. I coudn't have been any happier.
The 2nd day of the draft didn't look too hot, but McD was able to pull it off by drafting JD Walton and Zane Beadles. Two key picks we desperately needed.

Getting another WR when we could've gotten a LB, bugs me.

We're fine at LB. Dumervil, DJ, and Ayers are all highly talented. Haggan is only decent, but overall the group looks solid. I am more bugged we didn't take a DL like Cody. But the picks we made were all needs. Decker will prove far more valuable than any of the available LBs. He's a baller.

Not really a legit LB to be had at 87 in my eyes. Get the same quality in the 5th,6th. Would of liked denver to trade up a few spots for shipley though...but do dig the decker selection at 87
