Jay Cutler stays losing!
Okay, that was a little harsh, but today at the NFL Combine the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Chicago Bears had a coin flip to see who would have the pleasure of drafting 10th overall in this April’s NFL Draft.
The Jaguars won, so the Bears would have drafted 11th, except they gave their pick to Denver last season in the Cutler trade.
This may actually end up being good news for Denver as the difference between a 10th and 11th pick in the first round has recently been $1.5 to $2-million dollars in guaranteed money.
Denver has drafted 12th the last two seasons, the 11th pick in those two seasons ended up being the Buffalo Bills cornerback Leodis McKlevin (2008) and Bills linebacker Aaron Maybin (2009). The last time the Broncos had a number 11 pick they drafted, you guessed it, Jay Cutler (2006).
I’m sure East will have more on this, but I personally see Denver going with a skill position, even in an anemic free agency as far as defensive lineman go. Who do you think nation? I’m going receiver…
