Lockdown Corner or a Top RB?

Prior to the 2004 season, Denver traded star running back Clinton Portis to the Washington Redskins for Champ Bailey and a secon-round pick in the 2004 draft.

Portis was pretty darn good for Washington, eclipsing the 1,000 yard mark four times, but was forced to retire at the end of the 2010 season at the age of 29.

Bailey, 34, has slowed a bit, but has made the Pro Bowl in all but one of his seasons in Denver and continues to be one of the league’s best corners.

The second-round pick turned into running back Tatum Bell. Bell ran for 1,025 yards with Denver during the 2006 season.
