What a weekend. The draft is now history. Some thoughts on the big weekend.
1) LET’S ALL BE HONEST ENOUGH TO SAY WE REALLY DON’T KNOW HOW WELL THE BRONCOS DRAFTED. With the plethora of opinions and evaluations, we like to think we know how well they did. The fact is, however, we don’t know how good it is. We don’t know how any team did.
I know that sounds like any easy out but for me, it is the absolute truth. It simply takes time to find out how well a team drafted.
In the lead-up to the draft, we hear and read analysts talk and write about certain players. Thus, we tend to think those are the best players. Then, we hope that the team we root for drafts some of those players. The fact is, there are a lot of really good players available. Many of them we haven’t heard of or seen play. And virtually none of us have ever broken down film on them.
