Riley Odoms

With the NFL Draft coming up this weekend, I've decided that this week's entries will represent Broncos #1 draft choices from years gone by.

Up first is Riley Odoms. A tight end out of the U of Houston, Riley was picked 5th overall in 1972. Without a doubt the second best tight end in franchise history, Riley was named to 4 Pro Bowls during his 12 year Bronco career. While I am not saying he should be in the Hall of Fame, he has better stats than Charlie Sanders, who was inducted in 2007. I am saying however that Charlie Sanders should not be in the Hall of Fame. Riley wore number 88 during his Broncos career. He certainly lived up to being a number 1 draft choice. Check out the guy trying to tackle him in the first picture. That is none other than current Colts coach Tony Dungy.
