Broncos | Team shopping two first-round picks
Wed, 15 Mar 2006 08:23:37 -0800

Jeff Legwold, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports the Denver Broncos are shopping their two first-round picks in the 2006 NFL Draft in exchange for early picks in the 2007 NFL Draft. The team does not have much cap space left after paying out several up-front signing bonuses.
I have no idea what to do with this information, but it provides interesting possibilities. I'm not sure if even we have that much cap room.

RE: Broncos looking to deal

the broncs 2 firsts AND second round pick could only get them up to about #5 overall by the charts. they have players i would take in trade with picks but none i imagine they would part with.

What I was thinking basically revolves around the Mario Williams scenario. I wonder if there's a way we could get one or both of those picks without having to give up our first round selection. #2 is too good a spot to drop that far on.

RE: Broncos looking to deal

Trade down with the Jets, get their 1st, 3rd this year & either 1st or 2nd(+3rd) next year.
THEN trade down with Denver and get both their firsts and a 3rd or 4th this year and either a 1st or 2nd(+3rd) next year.

We'd be in control of the draft next year with up to three first round picks next year. Now I know everyone is still high on Hawk, Williams or Furguson but there are still players in Fa to cover those positions.

Hawk = Arrington, McGinest, or Peterson
Williams = DE, something we don't really need.
Furguson = Walker, Runyon, or Hopkins

We have the money because the rookie pool is what you take most of the salary/signing bonus from and it's separate from the sal cap.

Okay, did anyone actually READ this? It says the Broncs want to trade their two picks THIS YEAR for high picks NEXT YEAR. So we would not have to give up our number two THIS YEAR to acquire either of their picks. I like it. I would give up next year's pick for their pick this year. By the time we finish trading down from number two, we should have enough picks to make up the difference of whatever we gave them. Can you imagine if in this year's draft we had our first(and say traded down to 4-7 for more picks), then one of the Broncos firsts, then two seconds and a third? Holy crap. So we would have two first round picks, two seconds, AND a third. Wow.

You would have some serious cuts come August and a very inexperienced team. Still, three #1 and mutiple picks in rounds 2 and 3... you gotta like that. We still haven't finished free agency.

How about this, whodi? Trade our pick to the Packers for their first and second this year, plus next year's first (and Javon Walker if they're desperate enough). Then trade the '07 pick from the Pack to Denver for BOTH of their first rounders (you don't need a crystal ball to know that the Packers are going to suck again). Then draft like so...

#5 - Hawk
#21? - that dt from FSU
#29 - Mangold
#34 - Hodge
#37 - Whitworth

oh yeah, hell yeah, THIS is the time to load up. being 2nd worst most probably wouldn't project the saints later than mid first next season. and with the team history who could? i'm thinking it is gonna be a bears like turnaround this year though. so trading next years #1 for either of the broncs first rounders would be shrewd.

sorry, i can't stop these fantasies... add that to getting the jets #2 this year and next for going to the 4 spot. so we pick at #4, #22, #34, and #35. you fill in the names. something like this maybe

D'Brick OT
Tye Hill CB
Abdul Hodge LB
Claude Wroten DT

okay then...
Hawk LB
Winston Justice OT
Nick Mangold C
Claude Wroten DT

one more for the Mario pickers...
Mario DE
Jonathan Scott OT
Ashton Youboty CB
DeMeco Ryans LB

Ryans won't be there in the 2nd round. I like this one:

Brick OT
Ernie Sims OLB
D'Qwell Jackson MLB
Nick Mangold OC
