It’s impossible to grade professional sports drafts immediately after they’re done. It’s easy to just play armchair general manager the next day. The NFL team that drafts the most popular players from teams with the largest college football fanbases, get the highest draft grades. No one is giving a team an A+ to a team that drafts interior linemen.
I recently completed a reDRAFT re-do of the 2010 NFL Draft and think I need to pump out the 2011 version. These two draft classes are quite different from a talent standpoint, but do have one thing in common, it wasn’t a very good quarterback class. Cam Newton was on another level compared to the rest of the group with Andy Dalton, Tyrod Taylor and Colin Kaepernick on the next level down.
In a draft class with Cam Newton, J.J. Watt, Von Miller, Richard Sherman and Julio Jones, which player gets taken first overall?
Which players would be taken in the first-round in a re-do of the 2011 NFL Draft?
The Denver Broncos have been on a hot streak since signing Peyton Manning before the 2012 season. They are 38-10 with a Super Bowl appearance since luring him to the Rockies. I’m sure many Denver fans expected a Super Bowl win by now, but you can’t be too disappointed, can you?
I’m a life-long fan of the Indianapolis Colts. I understand some of their frustration with making the postseason every year, but often falling short of the main prize. Manning played for the Colts for 13 seasons and managed one Super Bowl win. He is proof that you can have the best quarterback in the league, but you need a complete team (and a little luck) to win the big one.
If Denver doesn’t win the Super Bowl this season, will Peyton’s tenure be viewed as a failure?
Here is the 2015 NFL team preview for the Denver Broncos.
The Denver Broncos could be without their All-Pro linebacker to start the 2013 season. Von Miller is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s drug policy. He is currently appealing the suspension.
The suspension may not be what you think it’s for.
George Atallah, spokesman for the NFL Player’s Association said the union was working with Miller on his appeal. He then went on Twitter and said, “I can also confirm that Von’s case does not involve the Steroids and Related Substances Policy.”
