  • Kiper-All Four Bronco Draft Picks Considered Reaches!

    On ESPN Insider Mel Kiper lists his steals and reaches. All FOUR of our first day picks were considered reaches. Hopefully we can prove everyone wrong, as Mel isn't the only person who considered our picks questionable.

      You're right; a lot of morons in the media have expressed their low, worthless opinions on the draft. They have certain draft choices going down the tubes and certain others single-handedly taking their teams to the Super Bowl--before any of them has played a down in the NFL! Shows real intelligence, doesn't it?

        I really bet Kiper had Tom Brady as a steal! Ha! Idiots...

          I thought the more telling Kiper quote was that the Broncos had one of the worst drafts of all 32 teams. Of course, it doesn't take a draft "guru" to figure that out.

            brutal....

            Man, you guys sure are negative right now.... Drafts are kinda like newborns.... could be something great... could be terrible.... the thing is... you just don't know until later.

            Come on now... why does Kiper matter at all? Because espn tells us he does?

            every year there are low rounders and undrafted free agents that shine ... and first rounders that crap out.... his record at picking the right/wrong ones isn't any better than anyone else....

            Ya might like who the drafted.... ya might not... but it seems silly to get worked up over a hypothetical.. (coulda/shoulda/mighta/woulda)... when it all boils down to the fact that we just don't know...

            Kiper? must be the hair?

              Had someone been able to get past the excitement of the draft they could've predicted beforehand that we'd have the worst draft of all 32 teams. You know it's not going to be anything great when your first pick is #56. Most teams had at least 2 picks before we had one. Some like Dallas & Minnesota had 3 before we picked our first! No wonder they had good drafts.

              So... you're right, MUG. There's nothing special about figuring this one out; before or after the draft - but only time will provide the truth.

                  Mel Kiper Jr. and the rest of these draft gurus know players 40 times, bench press reps, and players height and weight. They don't know football heart, vision, intangibles, football knowledge, work ethic, and feel for the game. If these gurus were so good they would be GM's and coaches themselves.

                    No offense to anyone, but I think we do a poor job at the draft.

                        Actually you should listen to what Mel has to say about which players were reaches!

                        Not because Mel is such an expert, he is a loudmouth sportscaster.

                        But because, while teams BEFORE the draft aren't talking, so the opinions are Mel's own, AFTER the draft, everyone loosens up and Mel has very good contacts with all the NFL teams. So he can talk to personnel directors about what they think about other teams' draft!

                        Of course, each personnel director hypes his OWN picks, but by talking to a LOT of GM's and personnel directors, Kiper can figure out what the league sentiment is about each team's draft.

                        So, those opinions aren't just his own, but reflect what other GM's around the NFL are saying!

                        And they're saying that Shanahan reached on all his picks once again this year!

                        The Broncos are universally considered to have had poor drafts for years now, with occasional hits like D.J. Williams and occasional solid pros like George Foster.

                        Darient Williams? Paymah? People are scratching their heads, asking "what was he thinking." We had those guys as 4th round/5th round picks!

                        That's called a REACH folks!

                          Anyone with a pulse knows we reach, but thats Shanny's half a** way of drafting. He just gets his guys no matter what, and does not take into correlation what the other 31 teams will do and whether better value presents itself or not
                          Does it bother you that a Bronco fan might like a NON Bronco? Deal with it!

                          Making fun of career threatening accidents because you dont agree with me is fun, right? Losers...

                            i think we did reach on our picks
                            but i still think mel kiper is an idiot, everyone think he's some kind of genius except he rates some players way high and every year the draft seems to prove him wrong

                              Please, somebody tell me what a reach really is!
                              If a coach has 6 players on their board, and they are available, then who the hell cares WHEN they were taken, if for no other reason than what they will get paid.

                              I could care less, myself, whether bighair says a player was a 'reach' or not!
                              Has he ever been an NFL GM? Coach?

                              If an organization has the ability to get the players they want, then bully for them.
                              I guarantee they know a hell of a lot more about the players, than what the mock drafters have to say about them to fans.....
