    It's the week before draft and rumors are starting to fly...Yipee!

    How about the Broncos going after Calvin Johnson:

    Or...How about Eric Wright being the next Pac-Man:

    The incident is real, wether or not it effects his draft status is the rumor.

    Or...How about Alan Branch having stress fractures in both legs:

    Those are the biggest one's I've seen today, if anybody sees another post them hear...let's try to keep the rumors confined to a single thread.

    Thats a lot to give up for one player, and that would all depend on Oakland of course, but ive heard there talking to Russel about working out some terms before the draft.

    If the Broncos got Calvin Johnson I would hate to be Kansas City, Oakland or San Diego. Javon Walker, CJ and Rod Smith is a scary group at WR. Rod Smith serves the mentor role and Walker nd Johnson are both insane playmaking deep threats, which would mold perfectly with Cutler's arm. The Lions, in my opinion would be idiots not to pull the trigger on this deal if it were to come to them. They seem to be wanting to trade out of the #2 spot and this would give them a lot more picks to work with.



    Also, who the heck is eric wright? idonno:
    looks like a future bengal to me.

    Kolb and Beck 1st rounders?

    QBs tend to go higher than the draft "experts" think. For the past 4 drafts, a team traded up in the 1st round to select a QB:

    2006 Jay Cutler - #11 to Denver
    2005 Jason Campbell - #25 to Washington
    2004 J.P. Losman - #22 to Buffalo
    2003 Kyle Boller - #10 to Baltimore

    Oakland, Detroit, Cleveland, Miami...at least two of these teams will not come away with Russell or Quinn. Look for those teams to make a move back into the 1st round to secure a signal caller.

    i saw 1 on the other, victor-rileyesque slow board that denver was after Staley @ #6 (BS and a big reach imo)

    Give credit where it is due--it was kastofsna and he also said every GM had him ranked higher than Brown and many had him ranked higher than Thomas. The madness will stop in 5 days. At least we aren't getting too many posts about trading up this year--we have to get Charles Rogers since he is clearly better than AJ, we have to move up for Gallery to be our franchise LT, we have to move up for Sean Taylor and he'll get us to the playoffs.
