    don't forget about Ayers, and moreno. the trade up to get smith might have been the worst pick we have made since middlebrooks. Hopefully the 2010 guys can pick up the slack!

    Kind of my thinking as well. He may be good depth though.

    I should've clarified, Olsen wasn't the person I meant who is on his way out, McKinnley is who I was talking about, with this latest injury I would assume his career is probably over.
    Perhaps, but the receivers we have leave me with little regret that his pick might not work out.

    We're loaded to the teeth.

    I agree with this, its still a bit early, though its not a good sign that two players are already gone and a third is on his way out. Olsen (Seth) is pretty much an unknown, we'll see what he can do in preseason, but I wouldn't expect him to start.

    I believe the drafts from this point on will be much better, we have already seen that this years draft is an improvement over last years, when the coaching staff was given a proper amount of time.

    When its all said and done we could easily end up with at least 3 or 4 starters from the '09 draft, which is still miles ahead of most of Shanny's drafts.

    Meh, still too early to tell..

    Knowshon had a PCL injury all season and had to run behind an OL that couldnt block anyone..

    Ayers had 17 QB pressures and will start this season, i'm expecting big things out of Ayers this season..

    Smith, yeah, a lot are dissapointed, but he's an outside CB, not a nickel corner.. He needs to start to show what he can do.. CB is a tough position to transition to in the NFL.

    McBath looked really good last season, and may not start this season, hope he does, but he'll have a big role this season for sure..

    Quinn, didn't like this pick, but from what i can see he's a great blocking tight end and is the heir apparent to Graham..

    Bruton is a ST monster, physical, didnt look too bad when he got to start..

    Olsen may not start, but if someone goes down, we have a capable player to fill in and not miss that much..

    One thing i'll mention is the scouts, Xanders, and others didnt have much time to evaluate the 2009 draft..

    That is why you here a lot of good things about the 2010 draft in camp so far.. I expect many more good drafts in the future..

    All of those quotes were way before the draft even took place... Getting Beadles (who is a better prospect) in the 2nd round pretty much told me all i need to know about what Josh thinks of Olsen.

    Coming from a guy who has been to 4 training camp this year, Beadles is better than Seth at every facet of the game. Sorry dude.

    By the way Hoser, i believe we bet a CP that Beadle Bulldozer would be starting before Olsen by week 6. I hope your planning to keep our bet.

    As far as Smith goes, I don't think that he belongs in the nickle package. He needs to be on the outside like Champ or Goodman. He is used to playing off the receiver and is way out of position when he trys to bump and run. I think that Smith is a very good corner, he just belongs on the outside to really show us what he is capable of.

    I don't think he has recently, but I wouldn't put too much stock into it. I'd wait until around the 3rd or 4th pre-season game.
    I've said from the very second we drafted Beadles, that he would start at LG from day 1... IMO Seth Olsen is nothing special, especially in a power blocking scheme.

    Beadles is a mauling machine and easily gives us the best chance on the o-line... He isn't going to give up his job anytime soon. You can count on that.

    Two starters and several quality backups is not a terrible draft IMO.

    And also lets all not forget, even if Olsen doesn't start this year, that doesn't mean he's a bad pick. I'm sure we'd all love to have some 3rd round OLB handpicked for this scheme from 2-3 seasons ago that has had time to develop right now.

    Just like I'm sure if one of our starting guards gets hurt at any point in the coming seasons, I'm sure it'll feel good to know we can plug in a guy who knows the system and has enough talent to play effectively for us.

    Broncos agreed to terms with fourth-round OG Seth Olsen on a four-year contract, including a $414,120 signing bonus.
    A power blocker from Iowa, the Broncos' pick of Olsen is more evidence that they're moving away from their old zone-blocking scheme. Olsen was a two-year starter at right guard for Kirk Ferentz. He'll be a backup as a rookie.
    Seth Olsen is expected to get first crack at the Broncos' vacant starting left guard position.
    Olsen was Denver's fourth-round pick last year. With the Broncos going away from their traditional zone-blocking scheme, he's a perfect fit. Olsen is a power blocker, which should help Knowshon Moreno's downhill, inside running style.
    Coach Josh McDaniels confirmed on Saturday that Seth Olsen will get every opportunity to be the team's starting left guard.
    "He sure will," McDaniels said. "He's a guy we have high hopes for, high expectations. He does too." Olsen, at 6'5/308, is a power blocker and should help Knowshon Moreno's inside running style.

    Is it a surprise that Beadles is starting LG? Isn't that what everyone expected? Olsen was kept inactive last year even as the offensive line deteriorated. Beadles was drafted to play starting LG. Leaving Seth, as backup or not with the team.

    Alphonso Smith has improved, he's just been outshone by Perrish Cox so far. Plus we got Darcel McBath who should be pushing for a starting job soon
