    to bad mikey got greedy he could ahve gotten someone that might have contributed to the team.

      That pick should have gone to Bo Scaife!

          Not to mention that we didn't have another pick until the 6th round. If the Broncos thought he was worth a shot they couldn't count on him lasting through the 4th and 5th, especially with rumors swirling that the Cowboys and a couple others were interested, as you mentioned.

          It was a calculated risk that didn't work out. Any other year and that's a 4th round pick. Disappointing, sure, but no big whoop.

            not to nit-pick but a 4th round choice would have been on day 2

            2 56 Darrent Williams CB Oklahoma State
            3 76 Karl Paymah CB Washington State

              He's saying that any other year and that's a 4th round pick, since the 101st player selected is typically in the 4th round of the draft.

                If you'll notice, I said "any other year". There were possibly the most ever compensatory 3rd round picks given out that year and ours was the very last one. So, any other year and that pick is a 4th rounder.

                By all means, take a look at how many other years the 101st pick was in the third round and not the fourth....

                  Thanks for getting it. I was starting to wonder if I shouldn't have spelled it out in more detail.

                    yes your correct but he was one of our first day 3rd choices we could have had a real player instead of a reach.

                    Marion Barbers name comes to mind.

                          Are you sure you're not thinking of Marcus Thomas? The Cowboys were going to take him 1 pick after the Broncos.

                          I think the Cowboys had a pick several behind the Broncos in the 4th round and might have taken Clarett. I bet they were damn glad Shanahan saved them from that blunder!

                          If they complained about Shanny swooping in to grab Thomas before them, he could point out that he saved them from "Club-Fed" Clarett!
