The NFL Lockout is almost over, and with that, we can get back to the sport that we all love rather than have to listen to lawyers or experts talking about mumbo, jumbo that no one can understand. With that said, I would like to revisit the draft picks that the trio of John Elway, John Fox, and Brian Xanders made just a few short months ago.
With rookies unable to get full NFL experience this year due to the lockout, it is going to be tough for a lot of them to become impact players like we have seen in the past. Most of them do not have a playbook and even the ones who were able to grab a playbook have little to no knowledge of language, cadence, or team chemistry.
Rookies are the ones who have been hit the hardest by the lockout, meaning that we'll see many more veterans early in the season than we might otherwise, creating further time to groom the rookies.
With all that said, I am excited to be writing about football once again and would like to reassess where each Denver Bronco rookie will find their niche.
