Drew's NFL Draft Sketch Fest








Ryan Clady is projected as a future Pro Bowl caliber left tackle. Not the most exciting pick for Broncos fans but a very good one, nonetheless, for the Broncos. It's safe to say the Broncos had a better day than the Avs did.

    Everyone is watching the Avalanche game.

    I'm not the least bit concerned about the NFL Draft. Bunch of overpaid nobodies, most of whom will ride the bench and play on special teams and no one will notice them at all for at least 3-5 years.

    I like the Clady pick. If Cutler is going to get better, he can't be looking over his shoulder for rushing D-linemen.

    Boy. How much do the Avalanche suck against the Red Wings? They have now played them nearly 6 full games and have 5 goals scored. This is no longer a rivalry, if it ever was.
    Theodore is just plain awful. Watching Avs players just coast back into the defensive zone while Zetterberg scored on the 2 on 1 was just pathetic. Then, to top things off, the Avs just start gooning it up.
    What a total embarrassment the Avalanche are to the state of Colorado.

    Sorry guys, but nobody cares about the Avs. Who will be talked about most on Monday: Avs or Clady?

    Go on. You know the answer to that already.

    Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha. People care more about playoff hockey than the NFL Draft. That's a good one. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!

    The Clady pick is solid.

    Wow. Avs got spanked. At least the Broncs got Clady, so it wasn't a complete loss of a day.

    Nice pick, Clady should turn into a solid lineman. Denver needs a mauler at left tackle to open the run game and protect Jay "the future" Cutler.

    Anyone else surprised that the Broncos chose a WR? Let alone Royal over Sweed or Jackson? I don't think I'd have done that, but Shanny made me happy enough with the Clady pick to cut him some slack.

    Wow, tough day for the AVS, what a disappointment. I seriously expected more. The Wings, as much as it kills me to say it, are such a disciplined team. They are everywhere they should be.

    Love the Clady pick, not too thrilled with a 5'9" WR as a second pick.

    To me, the Chiefs are having a successful day so far.

    The Avs got drilled by the Wings!

    The Nuggets got drilled by the Lakers!

    And the Donks took an offensive lineman in the draft.

    Wow. Great day Denver. Hope Shanny is planning on trading Clady to the Avalanche so he can tend goal, because that was a worthless pick for the Broncos. You don't waste a #12 pick on a tackle. You get a saftey to replace Lynch. The fact is that the Donks defense sucks, and got no better today. An offensive tackle at #12?? That's a complete joke.

    Drew, your awesome. We need a defense seriosly. But getting Ryan Clady was a good move for Cutler.

    Stop the embarrassment; quit starting Theodore. Budaj has played great so why take chances with Theodore's flu?

    Loved the first round pick, not so sure about the punt returner chosen in the second round. Defense needs a lot of help stopping the good RB's in the AFC West, LT, LJ, and now D-Mac. Can Clady play both ways? A good kicker would be a nice choice today to replace Elam.

    The Broncos sucked last season. They'll suck this season. Drafting an overweight offensive tackle does nothing to help a sad-sack defense and the worst special teams unit in the NFL.

    Also, just who's going to catch the ball? With Marshall on the shelf, there's nobody left to receive. And a 5'9" WR drafted 2nd? Please. Another worthless pick for this crappy franchise.

    Take it from a bronco fan from Arkansas. Peyton Hillis is going to be the steal of the draft. I think he will be our starting fullback opening day.

    Knowing the Broncos franchise of late and all of the bad karma following this team around, Clady will probably blow out a knee on the first day of Minicamp or the 3rd day of Training Camo, take your pick.

    Not a good pick at all. This team needed a top line safety or linebacker to stop the run. Now every other team in the division is going to feat on our weak ass D-line.

    I was in 2 different sports bars on Saturday and both had every TV on the Avs game. Not 1 single TV was on the draft. It was all Avs-Wings.

    everyone's complaining about how the broncos needed a LB or a safety at 12. anybody wanna tell me who the hell was gonna be taken at 12? the first safety was taken with the 31st pick, the top 2 linebackers were already off the board. why don't you all sit back and listen to what you're saying before you open your mouths and spew ignorance all over this board.

    Let's review the fundamentals: Football has offense, defense and special teams. By helping one area, you help the other three. E.g. If your offense churns out an extra 10 yards on a drive, if the special teams knocks out an extra 10 yards on a return, both of those things help lengthen the field, making things harder on the opposing offense and easier on your defense.
    The Broncos already got their DT, their linebackers and their safeties before the draft ever started. Then they went out and drafted another CB and another LB. They addressed virtually every single position on defense. What more did you want them to do? The Broncos already brought in a half-dozen new players on Defense. They need to spend some picks on O and Special teams.
    By beefing up the Offense and the Special teams a bit, the Broncos have just completed a fairly comprehensive offseason overhaul. We'll know in a few months if it translates into more wins. Here's hoping it does. Go Broncos.

    So many of these comments about Clady - like you people actually know what you're talking about. You have no clue if he'll be good, bad, or average. 'Solid pick'. Only time will tell, and if he falters, you'll all be saying you knew he would. Oh - and none of the talk in this office full of Bronco fans is centered on the draft - it's all about the Avs, Nugs, Rockies and Mammoth. No one cares about the draft. It's all a crap shoot. It won't affect anyone until August when we actually get to see them play.

    Was with a group of friends out on the town over the weekend, and no one even knew the NFL draft was going on. Everyone was talking Avs (and a little tiny bit of Nuggets later). But no draft. Avs made it a sad day for all of us on Saturday.

    It's great to see that the resigning of Forsberg is really working out for you guys.

    I guess it was a good decision for him to take Detroit off of his list of teams that he wanted to sign with. I guess his glass ankles really couldn't handle the stress of hoisting the Stanley Cup. So he figured he would go somewhere where he wouldn't have to worry about having to lift all that weight.

    With that said...what a game on Saturday afternoon to watch. "The Mule" almost taking care of you guys single handedly, scoring short-handed, and getting a hat trick.

    But why in God's name did your team have to go the Calgary Flames route of starting to play like a bunch of goons once the game is out of reach? Do they honestly think that it's going to make a difference. Look at how disciplined the Wings were during the Avs goon-fest. Not one penalty against the Wings for retaliation. They retaliated by the score on the board.

    Those scores get settled in the following regular season, when you least expect it. If anything it just might (a faint candle light of hope) rekindle that old rivalry with the Avs, but for it to be a rivalry the other team has to win at least occasionally.

    So best of luck the rest of the series, and we shall see who emerges victorious in the end.
