    Just let 'em play, KW! Some 1st rounders turn out to be busts, and some late rounders turn out to be stars. You just never know until they actually play...

    who reminds you Atwater the most Browner or Shazor, Who would you rather have? And did we offer Shazor a FA contract?

    With Darrent williams 5'9" 188 as our nickel back we can put browner almost 6'4" 220 at FS and double team them on a few guys sometimes! teams will try and pick on williams because he is a rookie and he is a little small but i dunno i would just love to see this some in pre-season at least!!!
    Darrent Williams is NOT going to be the nickel back. Shanahan said that Paymah and Foxworth will have the opportunity to compete for that honor. He didn't even mention Williams.

    Willie Middlebrooks is the probably #3 CB right now behind Champ and Walls. That could change of course, but based on his play last year until he was injured, he's the best #3 on the team. After that it's anyone's guess.

    I doubt Shanahan really envisions a 5'8" CB guarding the 6'2"+ receivers in this division. Williams is a PUNT RETURNER pure and simple. He could be a useful dime back at some point.

    He will never start at CB for the Broncos.

    Seeings how there are always two sides to each story.......I'll not pass judgement on him.
    As long as he can play and is a team player...that's ALL that matters.
    NOT what he did in his college days.

    But to discount someone SOLELY based on when they were selected, I think, is short-sighted. Many publications had Browner in the top 5 at CB. It's not like he's an unknown playing at the local JC. All I'm saying is to reserve judgment on the guy. Personally, I like the move, but Time will tell whether it was a good one or not.
    It was a good move on Denver's part. If Browner is a flop we lose nothing.

    Actually, there are about 6.3 billion undrafted people who never see the field in the NFL.

    Ya know, if you deleted the 'enter' you put between those images in your sig, they'd be side by side, and not nearly so annoying to people.

    Give all he cb's we've got a shot

    everbody makes mistakes. Paymah isn' perfect (shoulder pad pic). Neither is Browner. Even John Elway (the best QB of all time) made mistakes.

    dude reggie bush gets by everybody. browner is better than paymah. he does have character issues like others have said, and got slower from putting on weight. hes not as bad as an issue as clarett (who would fit in better at the raiders), and i have been over doing it a little bit, but he is a good corner and will be incredible at safety.

    Sounded like an early Maurice Clarett.
