I would argue that the Broncos, like the Vikings and others, illustrate how we have ‘arrived’ after just three years of drafts. We drafted 13 first day players and the Broncos have drafted 11 (note – Bell replaces the Portis pick). Further, the Texans have generated 7 starters (Carr, Johnson, Gaffney, Pitts, Wand, Babin, Robinson) from their T12 and the Broncos have generated 4 starters (I think – Lelie, Foster, Haywood, Williams) from their T12.
