That's a good point. My thought was that Denver wouldn't let Rick Smith leave until after the draft (probably along similar rationale). Plus, Casserly had hired all the scouts and put the system in place. Kubiak probably needed help with with the process and Casserly had all of the contacts.

And that's pretty much the system Casserly had with Capers & staff. They would tell Casserly who they wanted, and Casserly would find a way to get them (remember the '03 draft littered with Senior Bowlers the Texans coached?). You can't blame Casserly for drafting Babin or trading for P-Bust. Just the cost it took to acquire them.
