Rick Smith & his team put together their draft board with that list as well as the list Kubiak & Dennison "refined"

Rick Smith and a few of his scouts, Gary Kubiak, Dennison & another offensive coach or two, Wade Phillips & another coach or two went over the draft board & developed a plan.

On draft day many of those people were present in the war room. Most likely Rick, his lead scout, Gary, Dennison, & Wade were in attendance. As players were removed from the board, they refined the list. As their pick approached, they continued to refine their board & the different scenarios that led up to their pick.

By your description, I essentially picture that that in the end, Rick was sitting there in the War Room doing his thing with one big "modified" Denny's Menu.
