  • Mendenhall, Moreno

    For all of you Moreno/Wells pushers, consider this. Where would we be right now without Ryan Clady? What if we had drafted Mendenhall last year? Yeah, it was probably not a good idea. So, why would we draft a running back in the first round this year? It's not like our offense is the part of our team that needs the most help. The Broncos will draft a defensive playmaker in the first round, and at the end of next season people will be saying, "What if we had drafted Moreno last year? Where would we be right now without (first-round defensive player)?"

    What if we were drafting Adrian Peterson? Moreno is considered a top ten pick just as AP was. Would you be against drafting that?

    No one is saying that Clady wasn't the right pick, but that doesn't mean we wouldn't draft one this year. Its not like our last 7 running backs were anything to write home about...

      I would take Clady over Adrian Peterson. Who is projecting Moreno as a top-10 pick? Everywhere I have read has him top-20 and maybe top-15. I think you are the only person who is comparing Moreno to Adrian Peterson.

        peterson is a great player because its rare to have players of his caliber. You cannot really say any prospect is like Peterson...yet.

          I think there is no doubt the #1 pick is on defense, just take maluagua and don't look back. should be easy.

            It will be easy. Maualuga or Raji.

              I didn't like Mendenhall, I was a Stewart guy, and if Clady was gone, Stewart would have been the pick

                Moreno is not on the same planet as Adrian Peterson.

                  This man speaks the truth.

                  That's like comparing Quentin Griffin to Terrell Davis.

                    Agreed, Stewart was my favorite player in the draft, with Chris Johnson a close second last year.

                      Yeah well Tim Hightower, Edgerrin James, Willie Parker, Mewelde Moore, and Najeh Davenport aren't anything to write home about either.

                        Jimmy Stewart is actually one of my all time favorite actors. Known mostly for "It's a Wonderful Life", I felt his best film was Harvey.

                        David Mendenhall was a B actor best known for his work on General Hospital and voice overs for Transformer cartoons.

                        Stewart was the obvious choice there.

                        R Ayers - B Cofield - A Haynesworth - CJ ohnson
                        J Anderson - J Beason - DJ Williams
                        R Bailey - P Amukamara - R Hill - A Goodman

                          What does this have to do with anything?

                          Clady is a Bronco, and Moreno is a player available in THIS draft.

                          Tell me how that has anything to do with Mendenhall?

                            Thank you Mind Feild! :salute!:

                            I was trying to find a way to word this without saying the post is worthless.

                            But I guess I just did. Funny how a waste of a post works?

                              back to your origional question... Where would we be without Cladey... Probably about 8-8 and out of the playoffs. Wait it is the same place we are. Clady is a solid block to build your offense around, and Mendanhal got hurt. So what...it is easy to call the draft 11 months after it happens. Moreno is a dynamic player, any team picking outside the top 10 will not regret taking him. Even us... why hate on picking him up? He improvs this team. It is a need position. And I would rather take a guy that is a top 10 prospect at 12. Then take a guy that is around 20 just cause he plays on the line or is a pass rusher. We reached on Moss and how did that work out. If Moreno is the best rated player when our slot comes up. I say take him cause this offense needs a back that can get things done
