    Looking at all the QBs on that list is sobering. Even picking first it's a damn crapshoot.
    I was reading an article last night that essentially any QB pick is a risk, so there is no real reason not to go all in with your wager. It was geared toward teams trying to move up to grab a top prospect, it made me think a little differently about draft philosophy. I tend to be a best talent regardless of position kind of guy, theory being if you don't take the best talent, you're settling for less.

    I for one am excited about the group of young men the Broncos will have access to early in round one... there are just some studs outside of the QB position.

      I absolutely believe that it would be a waste for Denver to move up. No one actually knows which of the top QBs will turn out great.

        His best pass was a deflection.
        Bradshaw was known best for thrown the deep ball and he's a game manager? The iconic plays from Super Bowl X and XIV were Bradshaw's vertical passes to Lynn Swann and John Stallworth.

          Basically, was able to ride a great D then tried to throw daggers. The game has changed a bunch from then til now. Before the west coast offense became popular and changed the idea of passing, being the QB was about throwing down the field.

            the Best thing Bradshaw ever did was having to hand Elway that Lombardi trophy.

              My favorite thing about that article was the first comment that came up. Some knucklehead Pats fan "Brady's not on this list? This list is stupid" or something along those lines. Read the title numb nuts!

                Was just going to post this. And Aikman at 5. A little high in my book. There were some on there that I didn't agree with at all for being too high or too low.

                  Although, I have never seen a first step like Von's- its elite and unique.
                  Loved to watch Smith. He was dominating.
