Apparently there’s a reason I’m not an NFL General Manager. My “draft predictions”:http://juniorbird.com/archives/000417.html were, well, worth every penny you paid for them.
Denver took a linebacker in the first, then an RB and WR in the second, and a DB in the third. I had predicted a TE in the first, then a DB in the second, and WR in late second and third; reverse the DB and WR and I guess I wasn’t too far off.
Baltimore took a tackle in the second and a WR in the third; I expected said tackle in the third and a packaging of second- and fifth-round picks to move up to the first round to get a big time receiver. But, with the top three receivers all gone by pick #9, perhaps there was no possibility to move up and get real value.
In retrospect, I wouldn’t have expected Baltimore would give up any picks, given how short they are this year. And Denver is always a sucker for running backs.
Better luck next year!
