    Doesn't matter now. We had more than one opportunity to draft Earl Thomas. Apparently we didn't want him that much.

    Smith may have gotten 6 interceptions but he got benched after Tom Brady completely embarrassed him on national tv on thanksgiving.

    He gave up 4 TD's in the air and got run over for a 5th.

    Well with all the picks Mcdaniels had it has gotten hard to identfy which is which and which pick turned into who.

    With all those picks Mcdaneils had we could have been on the up and up by now. 4 First round picks in two years. Instead we have at this point worthless DE. A running back who could have been had in the 2nd and as much as I like him I beleived he Mccoy and Green were better runningbacks. A Qb who at this point is a backup and by all observations the new fo dont think much of him and a WR who is very talented physically but cant stay healthy to save himself. 3 Offensive players with this defense we have and the D mcdaniels had when he got here. What a joke.

    Let me clarify for anyone who needs clarification.

    In the 2009 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos traded their 2010 first round pick to the Seattle Seahawks for the 37th pick overall.

    With the 37th pick the Broncos selected Alphonso Smith in the 2009 Draft.

    Now Seattle picked Earl Thomas with #12 pick in 2010 draft.

    Then the Broncos traded Alphonso Smith to the Lions for Dan Grownkowski.


    And to the person who made the Eric Berry comment. Eric Berry is a god, and I love him, but we weren't going to get him anyway. Plus despite his greatness, Eric Berry doesn't make Earl Thomas a bad player at all. Earl had a fantastic year last year and was probably the best player on that defense as a rookie and should continue to get better.

    No actually...Orakpo was taken with the #13 pick.
    Ayers was selected with the #18 pick.
