Are you kidding?!? I thought Denver's draft was horrible.
Many things wrong with their 1st pick in Moreno. There need (and I mean urgent need) was on defense but no instead they draft at a position where they are probably the strongest. Not counting Moreno they already have EIGHT running backs... JJ Arington, LaMont Jordan, Peyton Hillis (FB?), Correll Buckhalter Selvin Young, Andre Hall, Ryan Torain, Andrew Pinnock (ok maybe this guy is a FB). With those guys they could have a pretty effective committee of RBs, while a couple of them could easily be starters in the future. On top of that Moreno was not regarded as the best RB in the draft, in fact most experts didnt have him going until pick 20 or later. I cant believe the Broncos picked him at 12 when even an infant knows that a late round back (even an undrafted one i.e. BJGE) can be plugged in to produce, especially in a run oriented team like the Broncos. They were having huge amounts of success with their supposed FB Hillis late last year.
Their next huge mistake was pretty much giving away their first on 2010 to the Seahawks. I dont care if you have another 1st rounder next year a team should not so recklessly throw one away. After all that hoopla they select Alphonso Smith who I didnt even see as a Top 5 CB prospect. Its looking like now they may have given the Seahawks a Top 10 pick next year.
In addition to all of that though they also went out and drafted another tight end in the second round. They already have a much better tight end corps then most teams in Tony Scheffler, Daniel Graham, and recently signed Adam Bergen.
The other decision that disappointed me was that they waited until the end of the 6th round to pick a pedestrian QB. Sure he could be good but its definitely no guarantee, steals like Brady come once in a lifetime. This guy comes across more like a Cassel type development QB. You would think with them recently losing their Pro Bowl Franchise QB the Broncos would address that early but apparently they are going to stick with Kyle Orton (thats the guy who used to back up Rex Grossman. Yuck) and Chris Simms another JAG and career backup.
Most of their other picks were pretty standard just plug into the depth chart defensive guys... no one I really liked or see as a steal for them.
At this point this draft looks atrocious but then again I could be completely wrong and it could turn out great. Im doubtful though.
