Mel Kiper Re-drafts 2006 NFL Draft, Gives Broncos Brandon Marshall

Mel Kiper Jr. has produced one of the more inane pieces of NFL Draft content by re-doing the 2006 NFL Draft (Insider only). See, it's based on what has happened and what the player still has left in his career. How does this accomplish anything? Ooh, at No. 11 the Denver Broncos select Brandon Marshall -- who was a fourth round pick by the team that year.

Marshall was a guy whose attitude was never going to fit in with this team. He was traded and that was that. Yes, he has immense talent but what is re-drafting him in an imaginary situation going to accomplish? Nothing. And moving him up in this imaginary farce eliminates the "draft sleeper" and the "diamond in the rough" that he turned out to be.

Since this re-draft wasn't based on need or an attempt to rewrite history then there was no real need to put the teams next to each pick. Just rank the players how well they have performed and be done with it.
