    The Denver Post - Safety, running back missing from draft
    By Mike Klis and Bill Williamson


    "Bell coming home

    Mike Bell said he told some NFL teams he would rather go undrafted and be a Bronco than be selected by them.

    He got his wish.

    The tailback from Arizona - who lived in Denver until he was 11 and grew up idolizing John Elway - was one of six undrafted free agents Denver agreed to terms with Sunday.

    "This is a dream come true," Bell said. "I'm going to fight to make that team. That's my team."
    There you have it Nburdis!!!

Wow. What has he done in the NFL to deserve that kind of money. If we would've drafted Maroney it was bye to one of the rb's we have now. b/c from what i've seen from shanny is, he only dresses 2 rb's mostly throughout the year. And has a fb that can play rb. But in all honesty, shanny wouldnt of drafted Maroney. He never drafts rb;s in the first rd for the past 11-12 yrs. it was just to lite a little fire under Bell's butt to work harder.
    I DO think Maroney would've been the highest paid RB on the team if he'd have been selected in the first round. While you are correct that NONE of the 1st round draft picks have done anything to "earn" that kind of money in the NFL, the fact of life is that they do get paid, generally, according to their draft position. So, if Maroney had been selected by the broncos at number 10-15 he would've been paid accordingly. Thus he would've become the highest paid RB on the broncos.

    I do agree with you that it's unlikely for Shanahan to draft a RB in the 1st round because he's been so successful drafting later and finding gems that fit his system better. I think he was tempted to draft Maroney because he fits the system, but only if he couldn't have reached Cutler.

    and how is that turning down being drafted?

    NO RB in the 5th round on will get a fair share of playing time as a rookie in the NFL...
    I never said he told teams not to draft him? I think the other dude said that!!
