The Brick Top led Redskins picked Robert Griffin yesterday and now it is the Broncos turn after swinging a colossal deal with the Vikings. There was some talk of the Broncos trying move down, but so far nothing has materialized. In light of that fact, the Broncos picked:
I am stunned at this pick. Not only did the Broncos trade the farm to move up, they also picked someone that many don't believe should be in the top five.
Of course, the only way to evolve the Chosen One is to improve the weapons around him. Like it or not, they will eventually have to pass the ball, and adding a physical receiver like Blackmon could help this offense tremendously. I think towards the draft Blackmon's stock will rise, so to me it isn't a problem that he is picked this high.
Still, this pick represents and all-in move by the Broncos; since they gave up so much, Tim Tebow will be there to stay- like it or not. If the Broncos were this high originally, I'd love the pick. But I'm not sure Blackmon is worth betting the farm on.
Doug sure knows how to get things going! If you missed the action, or want to see what trades have been made so far, check out the full schedule.
