    it all just depends on who shows up MC the kid that showed all that talent at OSU or the cry baby kid...

    as i have seen it so far

    he said he wont hold out
    he looks like he has a gleam in his eye

    hopefully the kid matured and understand that he cant take on the world..

    if he can get back to weight.. hell have a chance ... and if he dont make the active roster this year send him to NFL europe for next season so he can take some more hits and get his feet weet again

    How did clarett cheat the system? i might be wrong, but im under the impression that all he said was what everyone knows college coaches and recruiters do, well i know my best friend played college ball and they gave him cash to come to their school and they also set him up with a "summer job." Clarett has had nothin but turndowns since he tried to declare for the draft, by the nfl and ncaa. this guy has something to prove i know i would

    We took him in the 3rd, because Dallas was going to take him in the 4th round, we did not have a 4th or 5th round....so we had to grab him. I support Clarett and welcome him to Denver, he will flourish in Denver, as long as he sticks to hard work. Denver will pick up a vetern receiver after June 1, so we will be alright as long as the browns def line steps up....

    i agree, clarrett just needs time to learn the game of football again. After 2 years bell will have back to back 1000 yard seasons, then will want a new contract, so in steps clarrett and wam!!! another great denver rb. time will only tell tho, but to me bell is one cocky SOB, just like portis, and will want the mega bucks that just aint worth handing out to a rb in denver.

    And i also think we need to start welcoming our new lineman, and referring to them as Broncos, not the Browns on the Broncos, or Browncos, just Broncos!

    Nice comments, Dawg. I've seen a degree of bashing, and a lot of laughter from other teams, but I have to say the pick is easier to defend than to bash. It's obvious the Broncos decided to take a chance on a few guys that their scouting dept. has liked for some time (they obviously picked Darrent Williams based on what they saw of him in 2003-04 and looked past his injuries last season). They clearly had their eye on Clarett, and probably believed that he wouldn't be around at the 200th pick. That basically forced them to take him at 101. Otherwise, they would have had to make a deal to move up, and it appears that they want to save as many picks as possible to load up next year.

    Given that the Broncos were forced into a worst-case-scenario last year after they had injuries to Bell, Anderson, and Griffin (Droughns and the system pretty much bailed them out, or Denver could have been sub-.500 last year), my guess is that they felt that they could never have enough RBs. It will be even more intriguing this year than last to see who emerges as the premier back in Denver's system. It looks like Bell has the inside track, but should something happen to him and Griffin and/or Anderson aren't ready, it will fascinating to see if a) Dayne can resurrect his career, or b) Clarett becomes a star.

    Denver's obviously learned how to turn coal into diamonds, and they're no longer worried about letting their current feature back go. They let Olandis Gary move on, they traded Portis, they traded Droughns. So, if someone steps up, Denver can move them and get a good return on a small investment.

    I would like to have seen the Broncos pick up a receiver and perhaps add a little more depth at O-line, but there will be a lot of cap casualties hitting the market in June, and there are some promising UFAs out there, too.

    Personally, it would be great to see Clarett grow up, put his past behind him, and return to the form he showed in his only college season. Remember, Clarett was one of the most highly recruited HS running backs ever, and one of the most dominating freshman RBs ever, too. He was spectacular in the Buckeyes' Fiesta Bowl win over Miami (look back at the Hurricanes' roster to see how many current NFL players were in that game - it's shocking). The play I remember most was him running Sean Taylor down after a turnover and stripping the ball. Will he ever be that kind of player again? Who knows? But it's certainly an interesting "what if."

Alfred Williams, Romanowski, Berry, T. Davis, McCaffrey, Rod Smith, Ron Dayne, and even Jake Plummer. You ridicule and ridicule but then when Sundays are here and they do good you are cheering the same as the rest of us. Maurice Clarett deserves his shot, and like it or not you have no say so nor do I and all the complaining and whining will do nothing to change that fact. And if Bell went down with an injury your tune would be a total change if Clarett came in and rushed for 100 plus yards in a game or more.

    And I remember a lot of people complaining about T.D. and then when he was a premier back those same people are like "I told you he was a good back"! I mean just deal, if I have to live with Plummer whom I do not like and I have agreed not to bash, maybe you should do the same for some of us whom like Clarett and think he deserves a chance. Respect as fellow fans is something that goes a long ways from being rude and annoying fans like Oakland has.
    I think people should also have thick enough skin to listen to another persons opinion and not feel disrespected. The fact of the matter is that several of us were shocked at the pick and listening to all the experts we have every right to be. I don't know what this has to do with respect for other fans wanting to give him a shot. The conventional wisdom in this case says stay away from the guy. So if you want to defend him fine; but you don't have to feel disrepected because others disagree with you. And being compared to Raiders fans because we are critical of a draft pick is ridiculous.

    The past is NOTHING now! MC learned a valuable lesson and Shanny has driven into his brain that he has a clean slate and he has the chance to prove himself in the NFL. I want Bell to be the main back, but if he goes down, I am very happy to have Clarett fill the spot.

    There are valid criticisms that we can discuss. I don't see anything wrong with looking at his history and having doubts about him being picked. However, what does lessen the doubts at least for me is that our rb coach knows this kid and has been instumental in the success of our running attack, and someone like Bill Parcells was interested in drafting MC in the 4th round.

I have yet to hear a single draft expert say anything good about this pick. Not only because of Clarett being the guy he is but because we picked him so early. It was a waste.
    I agree with pickin him early was a bad idea, a waste i dont think so. But only time will tell and i hope nothing but the best for the kid id love to see him running for us for years to come. man i wish we could have gotten mcpherson(throws 70 yards flat footed) and then get clarett back in shape and on the right track. how things could have been. but im prolly wrong i just love the underdog
