This is a quote from Steve Wyche @ NFL.com in addressing the Bronco's draft choices:
"Overlooked amid the morass of everything is that Denver acquired some really good players, who, over the long term, could help the Broncos get back to being playoff regulars. Besides Moreno and Smith, defensive end Robert Ayers (18th overall) is potentially a big-time player who addresses a need.
Their philosophy -- maybe more than any other team -- truly was taking the best player available, which is why the Moreno pick seemingly came out of nowhere, as did the move for Smith. McDaniels has brought the Patriots' mentality with him to Denver, where you can't have enough running backs or cornerbacks.
Moreno should be a big asset to quarterback Kyle Orton, while Smith adds not only to the nickel package but is a big-time returner. Free-agent acquisition J.J. Arrington is in for a world of competition as a third-down back and a returner, which is one thing Xanders and McDaniels seek at each position.
McDaniels and Xanders have shown a disregard for outside opinion, which is a constant for New England's Bill Belichick and his disciples, like McDaniels and Chiefs GM Scott Pioli. The new leadership in Denver has invited cynicism and now they have to prove that the new way is the right way."
