History Lesson #2 on Shanahan

A comparison (After the Jump) of Redskins and Broncos drafts from 2006 - 2008 (Remember Shanahan was out after the 08 season). As I was compiling, I found myself very comfortable with Shanahan's picks. The (+) by the names are guys who turned into legitimate NFL ball players. The (*) represents guys who are at least still in the NFL. What Shanahan did in 2007 makes me salivate!!! On the other hand...Bruce Allen drafting terrifies me (http://www.nfl.com/draft/history/fulldraft?teamId=4900&type=team)
