Yet again, draft provides no shortage of stories to talk about | Peter King
So what were 39.6 million people doing over the weekend? Watching the draft. At least one minute of it, according to NFL numbers released Sunday. I won’t cover all three days of it here. Instead, I’ll pick and choose the things that most interested me, and then … well, let’s just get it going. There’s so much to say.

Discerning Denver’s offseason forest from the draft trees | IAOFM
I walked out of the draft nonplussed. If I’d been plussed, I’d have been much happier, but some days you just can’t get plussed to save your life. The draft was so different from the energy of the free agent period (which was moderately ecstatic), that several moves during the draft took me completely off guard.

THE BRONCOS GO COLD | Mile High Sports
Credit must be given where credit to due. The Denver Broncos landed the biggest free agent in NFL history, Peyton Manning, and deserve nothing but praise for the move. John Elway and Company pulled off what few thought was possible and even fewer saw coming. Their actions in free agency were clever, clear and decisive.

Grading the NFL draft: Denver Broncos double down on defense | Denver Post
It was a draft with a capital D, as in Defense. The Broncos used four of their seven picks on defense, including their first pick of the draft — Cincinnati defensive tackle Derek Wolfe — in the second round (36th overall).

Broncos 2012 Roster: Denver Waives WR Tim Toone | SB Nation

2012 NFL Draft Grades: ESPN’s Todd McShay Tabs Wolfe, Bolden As Broncos Most Interesting Picks | SB Nation
ESPN’s Todd McShay is one of the NFL Draft’s most prominent analysts, but he didn’t hand out any letter grades this year. That said, he did select two standout draft picks from each team, one that he thinks will have the most “impact” and one that he thinks is the most “intriguing.”

Peyton Manning Broncos Jersey |
I recall buying a John Elway jersey back in 2008 for about $127. That was breaking the bank! This is definitely how I should have done it, but live and learn I suppose.

Mile High Monday: Denver Broncos Draft Overview | Predominantly Orange

Ronnie Hillman Lands in Denver

The Denver Broncos picked up running back Ronnie Hillman in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Fantasy Spin: Hillman averaged 1,621 rushing yards over the last two seasons at San Diego State and is known as a smooth perimeter runner with an explosive burst. He projects as a good fit in Denver, with strong sleeper appeal when you consider that Knowshon Moreno is always hurt and...

Brock Osweiler Joins Manning in Denver

The Denver Broncos targeted quarterback Brock Osweiler with the No. 57 pick of the 2012 NFL Draft. Fantasy Spin: Osweiler is an excellent leader with the arm to eventually make all of the throws at the next level, but is raw as he was just a one-year starter at Arizona St. With that said, Osweiler falls into a great spot, as he gets the luxury of learning from a future Hall of Famer...

Film Room: McGahee No. 98 in NFLN’s Top 100

Draft Grades: Denver Broncos

By signing Peyton Manning, the Denver Broncos gave themselves a three-year window in which they can make a serious run at the Super Bowl. But their selections in this draft class raise some questions about the direction this franchise is headed. Derek Wolfe was a reach in the early 2nd round. John Fox was clearly looking for a penetrating three-technique tackle but, while Wolfe is...

Peter King: Richardson “Not a bad trade by Cleveland”

Peter King is giving everyone a pass on the deal that the Vikings and Browns made to move up from four to three. I’ve been hearing GM Rick Spielman of the Vikings took advantage of a Browns team that didn’t want to risk losing Trent Richardson, which is true. I’ve been hearing Browns GM Tom Heckert got snookered into throwing fourth-, sixth- and seventh-round picks. That...

Peter King Must Again Question Seattle’s Employee Deployment

When we last left punter cradler, Peter King, he was partaking in America’s finest walk, a stroll for the ages, a lofty peregrination of stupid asshole Red Sox fans. He also finally came to the conclusion that the draft trade value chart is useless, a mere few years after everyone else. He also credited Mike Florio for every scoop in the history of journalism. So what about this...

2012 NFL Draft Re-cap

There were a lot of moves made over the 3 days of the 2012 NFL Draft, but if I had to pick my favorite it would have to be the Dallas Cowboys moving up 8 picks to select CB Morris Claiborne with the 6th pick of the draft. Claiborne is a unique talent who will bring much needed help to a secondary who ranked 23rd in the NFL in passing yards allowed last season. The Cowboys have already...

The Brian Dawkins Retirement Tour

The NFL career of former Eagles/Broncos safety Brian Dawkins came to an end nearly a week ago. Since hanging up his cleats and emotive screams, Dawkins has been busy.

Hours later, Dawkins threw out the first pitch prior to a Phillies 5-2 win over...
