    rounded off by Jeremy bloom in the 6th




    way to go Shanny
    You're right, maybe you should head our draft next year, so you can draft all the media created gems...


    As I've said all offseason, we stand a good chance of having no receiver under contract next off season. With the trading and near siging of Walker, that gives us one. With the drafting of other receivers, we restock depth.

    Lelie, is all but gone, he'll probably be dealt for future picks or a player.

    Watts and Terrell are in put up or shut up mode, with neither ever displaying the hands to put up. I know what "reporters" have said about Terrell and Watts recently, but it's what happens on the field that matters.

    Adams and Devoe are borderline receivers and solid special teams types. These guys have about a three year shelf life in the NFL, and haven't exactly shown the skills to be more than a number four or five guy.

    Smith might be done after this season.

    With Marshall's ability and size, he is similar to the receiver Denver coveted earlier, Terrell Owens. I'm sure Marshall will get every opportunity to develop under 'Dinger's tutelege.

    I'm not sure about Hixon. He's camp competition, practice squad fodder, that could take Adams or Devoe's spot on special teams.



    Anyone with a competent understanding of our roster situation knew that wide receiver was the biggest need in the near future. Shanahan has done a solid job addressing the issue. I have a hard time shedding a tear for the throngs of number five receivers on the current roster...

      With that Hixon pick I would have much rather had a guy like Ed Hinkel.

        Uhhh, Jav, have you ever watched Marshall play? He takes over games. This could be the steal of the draft.

          I sure hope you're right. But what I've read on him doesn't soung too inspiring.

          I'm just concerned that we're going overboard on receiver. We have other areas of need that aren't being addressed.

            The five that make our roster next season should be Smith, Walker, Marshall, Adams, and Hixon (return man/special teams gunner). If Hixon ends up on practice squad, then that last spot goes to Devoe because of his willingness to play special teams.

            I'm liking the personnel decisions we've made in terms of position. I just don't like Hixon specifically, and personally would've preferred Aromashodu, who was a great return specialist at Auburn.

            So naturally, my Adopt-A-Bronco is Jay Cutler!

              I'm not high on Hixon either, but probably because he is more of an unkown. I would have preferred Cory Rodgers of TCU, one of the nation's leading returners last year, and has upside as a slot receiver as well.

                I think Green Bay took him early in the 4th...

                  Why? That's what everybody said about corner last year, and now wer're set. The drafting of these receivers leaves me to believe that both Lelie and Watts are gone this season.

                  Regardles, somebody get the video of Marshall in the Hula and Hawaii Bowls. He is a big, agressive WR that the entire defense was trying to stop, and couldn't. It was the most jaw-dropping performance by any player in a bowl game this side of Vince Young.

                  Let me see what I can find on him.

                      Yep, I bet he was high on Denver's draft board too, and would've been the pick at 130.

                          Yeah, they did, I missed that one fast forwarding through the first half of the round.

                            I think Shanny is just taking a shotgun approach to WR at this point. Just like last yr when we drafted all the DB's. Shannys history with drafting DB's was suspect, so he figured if i draft a few maybe one will hit. His hx with WR's isnt much better. So he figured draft 3-4 WR's, one of em will hit.

                              I don't like the last 2 picks either.
                              We have only drafted one defensive player so far, and we still have needs at DT, Safety and depth at linebacker.

                              And we picked some guy from North Dakota over Eslinger and Matua and others, we definitely needed some interior line depth but I'm not sure if this guy was a great pick.

                              In fact there wasn't really any risk of either guy being gone by the 5th, 6th or 7th round even UDFA
