  • DRaft Game: 8 picks, 7 positions... You Decide!

    RIGHT NOW... Denver has 8 picks in this year's draft. I expect that to change (Broncos will likely add a pick or two)...

    NOW... I think the philosophy of the 2005 & 2007 drafts don't apply to this year... DEN will not load up on one position of need, select multiple players and hope one pans out.

    I think w/ Shanny's newfound focus to rebuild this thing through the draft and w/ the fact this team has many holes... I've identified 7 positions of urgent need: OT, DT, LB, S, WR, RB, P.

    Of course, inherent in either the RB or WR selection will be an emphasis on a person w/ KR/PR potential.

    SO... here's the game. We have 8 picks and 7 positions of need. I'm looking for you to make a selection for each of the 7 positions and then you get one wild card (??) pick...

    ALSO, keep in mind that you cannot select Ellis, Mcafadden, Connor, Phillips... as your first 4 picks!

    I want you to list the positions in actual draft order... one through eight. You must take into account where a player is projected to go. You have some flexibility here... For example, since DEN has a high second round pick... you can hope someone slips to the second... Same as the third... BUT WITHIN REASON!

    What you cannot do is take a Phillips or Mendenhall in the 2nd nor a Mayo or Henderson in the 4th... Basically, you have a little room to fudge (hope) the truth... a player might slip a round... Of course, a guy like Ellis, Long etc aint doing that... AND, you cannot make trades.

    Here's My example:

    OT- Chris Williams
    LB- Curtis Lofton
    DT- Frank Okam
    FS- Josh Barret
    WR- Adrian Arrington
    (??)- Jehuu Caulcrick (FB)
    RB- BenJarvus Green-Ellis
    P- Mike Dragosavich

    It gives you prospects and projected rounds... You must adhere to their projections... although if you graba guy in the 4th projected to go in the third... You are allowed ONE such pick. BUT... this rule does not apply to DAY ONE picks.

        I don't like WaltersFootball, so I'll do my own evaluating, but I'll probably be very close anyway. The game sounds fun though, so I'll play.


        1. RB Jonathan Stewart
        2. DT Pat Sims
        4. OT Duane Brown
        4. WR Jordy Nelson
        5. FB Peyton Hillis
        5. LB Jordan Dizon
        7. P Ken DeBauche
        7. SS Tierre Green


        Tell me if any of my guys are off.

          PERFECT... Just what I'm looking for. Just a little fun... AND, although I feel DEN wont draft a guy they have rated lower on their board than another guy... just b/c of the position... I do feel if all is equal... DEN will take a guy at a position they feel is thinner. Meaning... If DEN feels they can grab a LB, FS, WR in rounds 4-5... better than a OT, DT... they might draft the OT/DT earlier and "wait" for a LB, FS, WR type. You know?

          Basically, if they like a RB/LB/OT in round one... but feel there are good enough LB/RB types in rounds 2,4,5... and all things are equal... this depth or lack thereof might ultimately decide whom we select.


          SO... just to have fun... I want to see what positions should be addressed first, second and so on... And, what type of quality (value) player we can expect in the latter rounds.

            1. Chris Williams - OT
            2. Tashard Choice - RB
            3. Frank Okam - DT
            4. Jordy Nelson - WR
            5. Jacob Hester - FB
            6. Dominique Barber - FS
            7. Jordan Dizon - LB
            8. Mike Dragosavich - P
            Hoping for a defensive-minded head coach and a return to the ZBS on offense. At the very least, no more cheaters for head coach.

                I heard this the other day and I think that is applies. " You never pass up on an elite player, even if it's not at a need position." I think that Denver will target 4 players at 12, one or two will be hopes and prayers that they fall. If all are gone, I see Denver trading down. I want to see us draft at least one or two impact guys.

                        round 1 - Rashard Mendenhall(RB/HB)

                        Round 2 - Oneal Cousins UTEP(OT/OG)

                        Round 4 - DJ Packer (FS/CB)

                        Round 4 - DeMario Pressley (DT)

                        Round 5- Kory Lichtensteiger (C)

                        Round 5- Kevin Robinson (WR/KR/CB)

                        Round 7- Thomas Willams (OLB/FB)

                        Round 7- Orlando ScanDrick (CB/KR/ST)

                        Round 7-UFA- Ken DeBauche P


                        here are my choices, and I added an UFA since we can still pick up a punter even if they dont grade to be in the draft.
                        McDaniles Career as a failure of a Head Coach is being fulfilled. Termination of McFailure has happen.

                        Rejoice Bronco Fans we have taken our team back, but at a heavy cost.

                            Alright, I will have a go at this.

                            1: Trevor Laws (Yea I am going to get a lot of lip from you guys for taking him
                            in the first round, but to me he is a high second round pick so
                            we trade down and reach)
                            However, for the purpose of this game, my pick is...
                            Pat Sims, Auburn (especially if he can really get his 40 time below 5
                            seconds in the combine)

                            2: Craig Steltz

                            4a: Shawn Crable

                            4b. Duane Brown, Virginia Tech

                            5a. Xavier Omon, NW Mississippi State (Was not on WalterFootball but I think he
                            will be there in the fifth
                            5b. William Franklin, Missiouri (WalterFootball said his 40 might put him into the
                            first day)
                            Alternate: Marcus Henry, Kansas

                            7a. Jordan Dizon, Colorado (I think he will be long gone by here)
                            Alternate: Jeremy Zuttah, Rutgers (He is my 6th round faller)

                            7b. Benjamin Dato, Fordham (wasn't even on WalterFootball)
