Next up on the AFC West draft rewind is No. 12, which is held by Denver:

The No. 12 Pick Since 1999
Year Team Player Pos. School Comment
2008 Denver Ryan Clady OT Boise State Clady was an instant star for Denver. He was a second-team All Pro as a rookie.
2007 Buffalo Marshawn Lynch RB California Lynch has been excellent on the field and troubled off it.
2006 Baltimore Haloti Ngata DT Oregon He has become one of the best nose tackles in the league.
2005 San Diego Shawne Merriman LB Maryland Merriman is one of the most feared pass-rushers in the NFL.
2004 New York Jets Jonathan Vilma LB Miami Vilma has been good when healthy, but he's been injured often.
2003 St. Louis Rams Jimmy Kennedy DT Penn State Kennedy has flopped around the league and has not been an impact player.
2002 Arizona Wendell Bryant DL Wisconsin Bryant was a major bust and he never made an impact.
2001 St. Louis Damione Lewis DT Miami Another low-impact defensive lineman.
2000 New York Jets Shaun Ellis DE Tennessee Ellis has had a very solid NFL career.
1999 Chicago Cade McNown QB UCLA He was supposed to be part of a great quarterback class. His career never took off.
