While obviously the Broncos' most noteworthy draft selection last April was the famed Tim Tebow, it's not a stretch to suggest that Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker can be the new Broncos apt to make the biggest splashes this season.
Personally, notwithstanding the idiotic remarks of Chargers fans I've been around this past week, I honestly think that Thomas is Irving Fryar 2.0 and Decker is Eddie Mac 2.0. If my inferences should be correct, that's quite a haul the Broncos had in April!
Thomas is the quintessential selfless wideout who only didn't put up bigger numbers in college because the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets' triple-option offense didn't use the vertical pass often. He only had 120 receptions during his collegiate days in Atlanta, but amassed 15 touchdowns. As we aspiring statisticians say: that's pretty good!
Meanwhile, Decker is perhaps the greatest wideout the Golden Gophers have ever had in program history and we longtime Broncos fans know that ex-Gophers (Karl Mecklenburg and Darrell Reid) do well in the orange and blue!
When you add the erstwhile Eddie Royal, Jabar Gaffney and (hopefully) Brandon Stokley to the mix, you can come to no other conclusion that whoever the quarterback is will have gone to football heaven.
I fully expect Thomas and Decker to assert themselves as studs that will give AFC West secondaries nightmares for years to come.
Thomas' swiftness and Decker's toughness instantaneously make the Broncos more formidable on paper in my opinion and I fully trust that this success on paper will lead to a magnificent transition on the gridiron.
The funny thing is that while many nonbelievers mock the Broncos for the allegedly suspect draft they had, I have a feeling in my bones that Thomas, Decker, Perrish Cox and (hopefully next season) Tebow will be making the haters eat their words.
I just have one question, Dolt, Faider and Chief fans: do you prefer A1 or Heinz 57 with your crow?
