Hey Chiefs fan here. Hope I don't piss any of you off too much. I'm not trolling, just an interesting thought popped in my head. Tell me what you think.
I see a lot of high grades for your draft and I don't think it was half bad. But, it wasn't a draft to help you in the here and now. I think Elway wants to tank this season so you can get Luck in the next years draft. The only way to secure him is by getting the number one pick. You guys did two things that suggest this could be a possibility.
1. They drafted to improve the pass defense and ignored the run defense. This will pay dividends in the future with two great pass rushers in Miller and Dummerville, but when teams will be able to run all over you it will take them out of games, including your secondary.
2. They are not going to give Tebow an optimal situation by not protecting his blindside on the right side. Franklin will be a good run blocking RT, but he is a liability is pass protection and shouldn't be protecting the blind side of your QB. I doubt they move Clady. And Elway is going to trade Orton to secure future draft picks.
By doing this it will allow you to take Andrew Luck who is the best QB prospect since Peyton Manning. This gives me nightmares personally considering another elite Stanford QB playing for the Broncos. I hope I'm dead wrong, but I can't really find another team that is set up for failure like you guys. You got to go up against Jamal Charles and McFadden with 25% of your schedule. As well as Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson, Javid Best/Mikel LeShoure, and the defending Super Bowl champs.
