So, sticking to the theme of brothers working together on the Denver Defense, what do you all think about the Broncos adding another defensive back with the last name Abdullah?

Hamza’s younger brother, Husain Abdullah, is in this year’s draft class as a safety coming out of the same school that produced Hamza (as well as Karl Paymah). Since we have a couple of Washington State guys, and Husain is not projected to go until very late, do you think Mike Shanahan might give him a chance if we can pick him up as an undrafted free agent?

Husain is a few pounds lighter and 2 inches shorter than his older brother, but their combine numbers look pretty similar…

Hamza draft class of 2005
40 yard dash: 4.62
20 yard dash: 2.73
Bench reps: 18
Vert Jump: 39
Broad Jump: 9′ 06″
Cone: 6.96

Husain draft class of 2008
40 yard dash: 4.63
20 yard dash: 2.63
Bench reps: 16
Vert Jump: 32.5
Broad Jump: 9′ 07″
Cone: 7.07

Husain may not be starting material in the NFL, but isn’t it fun to imagine opposing WR’s thinking they’re suffering from double vision?

    now just draft elway jr. in a few years and well be one big happy family

    I’m all for bringing in overachieving unsigned free agents. We definitely need depth at safety.
