Clinton Portis (Miami) RB: Although considered one of the best Redskins in history, Portis was also a really successful Bronco. In the first round, the Broncos drafted Ashley Lelie because of a huge need for WR at the time and a back story relationship with June Jones/Pat Bowlen out of Hawai’i. Anyway, the second round comes along and Portis was the best guy available. There really wasn’t a need for a RB… but Ted convinced Mike to take him. Well Portis rushed for over 1500 yards in each of his first two seasons, averaging 5.5 yards per carry, which is an NFL record for RB in the first two seasons. 2002 – Portis became the youngest player to score 4 TDs in a game and then the next season became the youngest player to score 5 TDs in a game! He was later traded for Champ Bailey… and you need to listen in to get that story.
-Terrell Davis being drafted in the 6th round was really a shot in the dark and no, the NFL is not built around 5-6 round guys… so stop saying it. Sometimes you just get lucky and the Broncos got lucky with TD!
