Otara Reborn

Team Theme Song: “Beat It” – Michael Jackson

(“…no one wants to be defeated.”)

1. (5) Peyton Manning
2. (16) Clinton Portis
3. (25) Thomas Jones
4. (36) Marques Colston
5. (45) Hines Ward
6. (56) Plaxico Burress
7. (65) Marshawn Lynch
8. (76) Jerricho Cotchery
9. (85) Jeremy Shockey
10. (96) Jake Delhomme
11. (105) Marcus Pollard
12. (116) Dallas
13. (125) Adam Seward
14. (136) Chris Johnson
15. (145) Stephen Gostkowski
16. (156) Denver
17. (165) Shayne Graham
18. (176) Derrick Johnson
19. (185) Dan Klecko
20. (196) Josh Parry

Took Manning in the first round for the second year in a row. As far as first round picks go, you really can’t go too wrong here – you know he’ll throw 30 TDs, 4000+ yards, and not get hurt. RBs are solid, Marshawn Lynch could be the next Laurence Maroney. There are some nagging training camp injuries to some key players – Burress, Colston, Portis, and Jones have all missed some time. Hopefully this won’t carry over to the regular season. Two very solid team defenses, I expect Denver to be very strong this year with Champ Bailey and Dre Bly at the cornerback spots giving their pass rush more time to get after opposing QBs. Inexplicably has two kickers on the roster.
