More occasional draft-day thoughts as I have time to drop by:.
4:11 P.M. MDT: Overheard here in the DenverBroncos.com conference room: “I don’t know if I even feel comfortable typing ‘pelvic bone infection.’”
4:18 P.M. MDT: Longest first round ever. Good God.
4:25 P.M. MDT: As for Jarvis Moss’ number, well, there’s only two numbers not taken in the 90s — 95 and 96, the latter of which was recently vacated by Michael Myers. Moss had No. 94 at Florida.
5:54 P.M. MDT: The second round isn’t motoring along as much as it’s lumbering. At this pace, the third round will not begin until around 7:20 p.m. MDT. This is threatening to become the longest first day in NFL annals.
5:56 P.M. MDT: “We never give Mountain time,” Chris Berman says as he announces that the draft will move to ESPN2 at 6 p.m MDT … making this one of the rare times I’ve heard a broadcaster give Mountain Time on a national telecast in the last 15 years. About time the forgotten time zone we call home was acknowledged.
6:57 P.M. MDT: An interesting contrast among the players the Broncos have selected so far. Moss started 13 games in his years at Florida and never started before his senior year. Crowder, on the other hand, became a starter as a freshman and closed his career with 47 consecutive starts. The two also were key parts of the last two national championship teams.
