When they pick at 22, they PASS on a star like Bryant for a nobody (Thomas has never ran a route tree, has straight-line speed, so-so hands), and THEN they pass on Dan Williams for Tebow.

Now, nothing against Tebow, but Williams was rated in the Top 10 -- if he falls to you at 25 and you pass (and he's your #1 need), you're insane.

I think I'm so amazed because they were so close to have in the best draft in the NFL...but ended up with the worst.

Amazing...

How do you know it's that bad? Give it some time to see. You can't judge it yet.

First, grades given at this point for a team's draft are virtually worthless. You won't really know for probably 3 years. They're just easy for media guys to give out to either make the fan base feel better or to stir the pot for local sports talk.

Second, perhaps picking Thomas instead of Bryant will be another Kevin Dyson before Randy Moss or, at least to date, Heyward-Bey going before Crabtree, but you're ignoring that obviously there were concerns about Bryant across many of the teams. You're also ignoring that Thomas was considered a 1st round talent. At this point, its just as likely that Thomas will be a good player in McDaniel's system and Bryant will implode once he's paid and become more trouble than he's worth as it is that Bryant will be a star and Thomas will be a bust.

Third, if McDaniel is able to develop Tebow and he becomes a star, the rest of it won't matter. It will be considered a good to great draft for Denver. If Tebow fails, it will be a bad draft and McDaniel probably will get fired.

the broncos with joshi are the new raiders/al davis.

OP is taking a beating on this thread, some funny, others are a little harsh.

Back on-topic, I agree w/ you. Jags picked what...a 2nd rd guy in the top 10. What team was that idiotic to do something so stupid that it was ridiculed nationwide? Oh yeah, the Raiders w/ DHB.
