    This is terrible

    It is all relative...
    1. It's still helping New England (but at least we got some extra value out of that one, but not GOOD value)

    2. We didn't get an extra pick from Tampa Bay


    Well, it is what it is. I just don't understand it.

    Just hoping we can make something happen tomorrow to make this all worth it.

    I hate when we get our target and more picks... Can we just forfeit all our picks? Haha

    Im not worried one bit about the trades. I love the fact the Tampa Bay moved up to draft Doug Martin. Im glad the Vikings moved back up to take Harrison Smith.

    2 players i did not want on the team.

    Well of course our top targets weren't, but they were all gone by 17. After that what we wanted at 25 could be had at 36. It's that simple.

Look at it.. honestly.. that is the cat that ate the bird.
    They've already said their board is the same now than it was at 25. So they didn't like what they saw in hightower, martin, etc.
    Players have to fit schemes. You don't draft a guy because mel kiper told you he's ranked as his best available. Schemes, character, styles, learning curves. This all depends on the team tendencies.Maybe we should wait until we see the big picture before we already write this draft off.

    I've Got It!

    My contacts inside Dove Valley have gone to great lengths to obtain this, and I'm taking great risk by posting it here. It's the top-secret official strategic plan of the Broncos' FO in orchestrating today's brilliant trades!

    Smart (by Shel Silverstein)

    My dad gave me one dollar bill
    'Cause I'm his smartest son,
    And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
    'Cause two is more than one!

    And then I took the quarters
    And traded them to Lou
    For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
    That three is more than two!

    Just then, along came old blind Bates
    And just 'cause he can't see
    He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
    And four is more than three!

    And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
    Down at the seed-feed store,
    And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
    And five is more than four!

    And then I went and showed my dad,
    And he got red in the cheeks
    And closed his eyes and shook his head --
    Too proud of me to speak!
    Can't believe I ever doubted the genius of these guys!

    Elway actually said the board was the same even at #22. My guess is they looked at their grades and saw the same thing for picks 22-45...we may trade down again.

    Is this a serious post?

    It was a bad trade ...both of them, but the second one especially (well depending on what Hightower does) if he turns out great that was really even more of a horrible trade but the 2nd one made no sense

    You act as if the players taken in our spot would be players we wanted. Obviously not the case.

    That means they're even worse talent evaluators..if we're talking impact players in a BPA strategy ...you really don't think the guys on the board right now aren't the best?

    It's because all that matters is the trade value chart and not how the players turn out lol

    "It's not real thick at the top but it's deep through the middle rounds," Elway says of the draft.

    Elway expects some of their targets at No. 25 to be available at No. 36. #Broncos

    "Our board looks pretty much the same, even with the picks after us (at 25)," Elway says.

    Elway said the Broncos did not try to move up. #Broncos

    Elway: "We got a lot of calls today at 25, and at 31 we got a bunch of calls." #Broncos

    "The point values of going back -- we're probably losing point value," Elway said. #Broncos

    As of now, the Broncos have five picks between 36 and 120. And I don't think they're done. Still expect them to use 4ths to add extra 3rd.

    We gained extra picks, and can add another 3rd tommorow if we want too.

    We can still get a pretty good player at 36, and with our other 2nd. Let's see what happens tommorow before bashing EFX.

    Elway says that they had targets that didn't make it to them at 25. If those targets didn't make it to them, what do you expect them to do?

    Do you want them to take other targets that they can get with later picks while picking up extra or better picks or do you want them to take a player they don't want just because he's graded at that spot?
