As a pure practice squader I don't mind the Robinson move... mind you, I was hoping for a few more 300 lbers myself.

Shanahan up to his old tricks. Eric Olsen, former Broncos #6 round pick, who at OG goes 6'3 and 300 :)

Gotta love him. Shanahan is going to find his 295-300 pound 'muse' on the offensive line one way or the other.

So between the PS and active roster, did we actually keep every single one of our draft picks ?

Looks like we did. I'm just not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

Well it's certainly a refreshing change of our previous philosophy of pursuing over-paid, over-ego, over-the-hill, over-rated players
Well, you won't get any argument from me. The thing that is most impressive, I think, is that we have 9 new players on the team that were all draft picks by us in one year. That's 9, not including the other three on the practice squad. Before Shanahan got here, how many draft picks did we have on the 2009 roster that were drafted by us in the previous three years?

Shoot, we rarely had even close to 9 picks to START WITH in each April draft, the way we'd trade them away
