    It looks like it might be a pretty good deal for everybody, considering.

      Don't know do we? I've seen 3rd and 4th round picks turn out better than 1st rounders and vice versa.

        On this report Espn Len Pasquarelli said that the Falcons also sent our way a couple of mid round pics in next year's draft.

        « Atlanta sent its first-round choice, the 15th pick overall in this year's draft, to Denver for the Broncos' first-round choice, No. 29 overall. The Falcons also picked up a pair of middle-round selections, one each in the 2006 and 2007 drafts. ».

        Man, If that is true we actually robbed'em badly...

        Go Broncos
        Moving up 14 spots for a 3rd this year, and a 4th next is highway robery, plain and simple.

          We took ourselves out of the Abraham race... inserting him as though we "lost him" is not valid.

          We KNEW we he was out of reach, and therefore got ourselves a hell of a deal, regardless if that helped send him to ATL, he wasn't our's, or going to be our's and we knew it.

          It has nothing to do with us "losing" Abe, it has to do with us losing a 3rd and a 4th.

                You're right, it all depends on who we pick.

                If we draft another Marcus Nash or Willie Middlebrooks than its all for naught.

                  Another thing is that the depth in this year's draft is supposed to be good so we should be able to get a good player in the 3rd round.

                  Anyways, best of luck this year.
                  ...I read somewhere last year that Shanahan stated that one of the reasons for the trade we made last year to opt out of last year's first round pick was due to lack of talent of last years draft in comparison to this year. May just payoff. Also welcome to the board newbie. Glad you're here. Hope you can stay awhile.

                        --- what glared out to me in EspLenny's piece was "sometimes problematic Abraham" and "Given some of his past off-field issues" ---

                        --- Perhaps the deal was even sweeter by not adding Abe to our roster !

                        --- And we still have some moola to sign an elite draftee !!!

                          i think this trade really works out well for everyone. abraham got what he wanted, the jets got a very good deal back for a player who was obviously unhappy, the falcons got a guy the desperately wanted, and the broncos moved themselves into position to take two guys who can make a first year impact at 15 and 22. they really missed out on impact players in free agency so moving into an area were they can find a guy who can come in and make some impact right away if not get starting minutes. there will be so much talent available at 15 its unbelievable. and to move up 14 spots for our 29th, a 3rd and a future 4th is such a great deal for us. after losing hayward and kennoy and the other guy to seattle that i cant think of his name, we were set up to get a compensatory 3rd right around the spot where our previous third was. i myself was very unhappy with the lack of moves denver had been making in FA, but this trade makes up for all of the inaction. great move shanny and co.

                            here's something to think about:
                            remember in the 04 draft when, I think it was S. Jackson was the first Rb taken by the Rams with the 20 something pick (or was it Dallas w/ J. Jones). The point I'm trying to make is there still might be some formidable RB's left in the 2nd round cause all the teams (exept us) picking late in the 1st round don't really need the help in that position. we could very well see White end up going in the second round. with that in mind, Shanny should use those 2 1st rounders to draft studs....and I mean STUDS
                            This years draft IS THAT DEEP!!!!!!!!!

                              It was a no brainer on all sides.

                              Broncos move up in the draft.
                              Jets get a first round pick
                              Falcons get the only proven commodity in the deal and two extra picks.

                                I cant believe it.

                                This thread is for the most part positive.

                                The we are doomed without abraham'ers arent quaking. The we arent doing anything'ers are silent.

                                I think the world is on its last leg...
