    I figure they'll draft 2 or 3 O-Linemen.


    They might also draft another black DE, some black safeties, etc.

    We'll see shortly!

    What do you think the odds are that they draft Appalachian State safety #47 Corey Lynch in order to make a seamless transition from John's retirement?

    I would say 1/100 at best, but it would be great if they did do that.

    Broncos fans love Peyton Hillis pick and i think he will be pretty happy to play there, too.

    They'd better! That was a total steal in the 7th round. Hopefully he gets some carries.

    Yeah, that was probably the best team he could have landed on. Travis Henry is injury prone and always close to being suspended, Selvin Young couldn't stay healthy last year. With the Broncos'run-blocking scheme Hillis has a slight chance under the right set of circumstances of ending the long-standing ban on whites being the primary ball carrier.

    Shannahan will find another underproductive, overhyped, criminal black player to run the ball. Hillis will probably only get a shot as a FB. Even though Denver runs a lot of single-back stuff.
