And over the past decade, the Broncos have had a lot of great kids, including five first-round draft picks—Jaime Jones (1995), Matt Wheatland and Scott Heard (2000), Cole Hamels (2002) and Danny Putnam (2004, drafted out of Stanford)—11 players drafted in the first 10 rounds and more than two dozen draftees overall.
