Good morning folks, James here with your Nuggets. I'm dead tired, the draft day party was great, cheering and booing with those guys gave me a lot of pride. Right about the time the Raiders picked Heyward-Bey there was an outburst of laughing, followed by the cheering of Crabtree's name until the tenth pick came along and we actually picked him. Throw in some more boos for the random Dallas Cowboys commercial, and you've got a fun time. I'm almost positive I saw a guy rolling on the floor laughing, but hindsight tells me he was probably choking on a nacho or something. So anyway, we've got ourself a petty damned good receiver and another first round pick next season. Day two should be interesting...

And some more from CBS Sports, and personally, (this isn't just because I'm a Niners fan and am slightly offended) this guy sounds like he doesn't know what he's talking about... at all. Not even just the knocks on Crabtree, look at the Aaron Curry analysis, the Jason Smith analysis.. What a joke. (CBSSports.com)

In case you were wondering, I give us an A-. Crabtree is great, fills some form of need, and another first round pick is never, ever a bad thing. The plus would only be achieved if we had done some crazy nonsense and drafted Crabtree twice or something equally as awesome. As you can tell, its pretty much a very coveted thing from me, a plus.
