Now that the NFL draft is in the books, our attention turns to the lockout and speculating on how good the Broncos new players are.
We all know the draft is an inexact science. Teams do their best to rank the players and take the ones they believe will be good. But no one yet knows who will turn out to be good.
Looking back over the draft, I came away with several impressions.
1 – THE BRONCOS DID A GOOD JOB FOR FOR WHERE THEY ARE AT. Head coach John Fox was one of the Broncos’ front office personnel who regularly kept perspective throughout the three-day draft.
“We came into it with a lot of needs and I think we were not going to fill them all in this process,” head coach John Fox said after the draft ended.
We know the Broncos have some serious rebuilding to do. I think they took a good first step in that process. They were able to pick some players they had rated highly, they acquired a couple of extra selections and they infused the defense with much needed talent and speed.
Given their needs are many, they did a good job addressing a good number of those needs. I know that may not seem like much, but to me, it is crucial to getting a good start on the rebuilding process.
