Final Draft Review

April 30, 2008

With all things considered I have come up with my grade for the Broncos 2008 NFL Draft. 

Since there weren’t any big trades that took place with the exception of Dewayne Robertson we can not say much for that. But since we did trade for him with a draft pick we will just have him count for the heck of it. 

Our rookie free agent signings were extremely good and we covered positions we didn’t draft such as kicker Garrett Hartley and punter Bret Kern. We also got a very good player in Tyler Polumbus a former high school star and a decent college player.

Our draft itself was pretty good though. We got college stars in both Ryan Clady and Eddie Royal who will help both our O-line, Special Teams, and Wide Receiver squad. 

Kory Lichtensteiger will prepare for the retirement of Tom Nalen which will take place in the distant future. Though there were below average picks in Ryan Torian and Jack Williams. Both were sort of depressing picks. 

Along with Ryan Torain we had more Arizona State alumni with Josh Barrett and some more just plain Arizona in Spencer Larsen. These were decent picks and will help us.

Though the most exciting late round pick was Peyton Hillis who was surprisingly taken in the 7th round. That is a great pick and now we will not have to mess around with Cecil Sapp anymore. I love Peyton Hillis and this was one of my favorite picks.

I give this entire draft with rookie free agent signings and trades a B+

    He is good too. This is my favorite parts of the draft and least favorite parts. He did not mean much to me.
