Jay is without a doubt the best QB to join the league in the past 3-4 years. At TE, Scheffler is better than guys taken before him such as Joe Klopfenstein and Marcedes Lewis (IMHO). At wide receiver we have this Brandon Marshall guy... widely considered a top-20 WR, but look who we could've had: Cory Rodgers, Brandon Williams, Chad Jackson... the only guy taken before Marshall that I might be envious of is Greg Jennings. Elvis Dumervil, what a steal. Guys taken before him include Jason Hatcher and Frostee Rucker.
In 2005, our draft may have not been amazing, but we nabbed three corners (R.I.P. D-Will), of which Foxworth and Paymah create depth the rest of the league envies to hell. And though Maurice Clarret was an all-around bad choice, I'd still say we had a pretty good draft.
Over the past few years, I'd say Denver has redeemed themselves after a streak of poor drafts, mainly in the '06 draft. Cutler, Scheffler, Marshall, Dumervil... How many better drafts have there been in recent history for ANY team?
