BRONCOS win five straight Super Bowls! (be warned, this is gonna make you cry)

I know we have all wondered what would have happened if we actually drafted PLAYERS (not JAGS) over the last eight or nine years.  Well, here is the possible Broncos team with the draft picks that we had.  All players on this team were available to draft at the time of our pick, with one exception (it's easy to spot, but realistic given what we would trade). You will be surprised who could have been a Bronco.  Which pick do you most what to have a "do-over" with? How many Super Bowls does this team win?  Grab some Kleenex and take a jump...
