    Just read on espn.com that Shane Ray was cited for pot possession. These guys just can't let go of that stuff until the process is over. Crazy.

    :rolleyes:


    And I was hoping teams were getting high on him and gonna take him top 15 so a real star could slide to us.

    Too bad for Ray.

    That's a great point as far as we are concerned. Someone taking Ray ahead of us would have been good news for us.

    Apparently the Chargers made contact with Ray this week, I'll be so pissed if they pass up a real player for another Larry English

    Broncos got a great Elite talent. KC and Denver defense just got scary good. Can't see us winning on the road against either team.

    And I guess they will be cool with his recreational habit.

    Ray may be in the right place if he likes bud that much. If Ray doesn't have the self-restraint to lay off the bud, knowing he has a shot at making millions, he's more than a "recreational user." I suspect Denver may have wasted a draft choice.

    Not really. I'll fully eat crow if Shane Ray turns into another Elvis Dumerville, but Doom was way, way more well-rounded athletically than Ray is (I don't need a sans-toe-injury combine to tell me that either - it's pretty evident on the tape). While he's certainly more athletic than Michael Sam was, he benefited substantially from being able to play almost exclusively out of the wide-9 in Mizzou's defense the same way Sam did... and even then he still was consistently an "almost there" guy one the instances where he couldn't just beat guys by timing the snap. That's not elite talent. I'll honestly be surprised if he outproduces Brooks Reed in terms of span of rookie contract.

    As much as I disagree with you on Ray, I hope you're right.
