with no 2nd round pick, and the potential of seeing the top defensive backs being drafted ahead of us, i think we NEED to trade down and at least TRY toget a 2nd rounder. we only have 3 day 1 picks now, and 3 7th rounders. our biggest hope is that a big player drops to 16 (young?) so we can make the move! who's with me???

Yeah we really need to trade down, So I think I will hop in the passenger seat. Trading down and getting Nick Mangold and a DB with the next pick would be great. However we did get a proven Franchise QB with that 2nd round pick so its not like its a waste.

The second rounder we gave up is 2007 I believe!

actually it looks like it's a 2007 2nd round pick, which changes everything! still, it'd be nice to get extra picks, or maybe even a 2nd rounder for next year.

I am on this bandwagon big time, whether we gave up a 2006 or 2007 2nd rounder.

This draft is very deep and we coud get some great value by trading down.

And from the looks at most of the mock drafts it almost looks like a stretch for who ever we take at 16 (except maybe Jimmy Williams). So trading down would be a great strategy!!

When did the move the 4th round to the first day of the draft????

i thought it out, and i think swapping firsts with a team in the 25-32 range, as well as getting maybe a 3rd rounder this year, AND next year's 2nd rounder would be a fair deal. it seems like something the colts would do in a heart. not only would we have more picks this year, but we gain the pick we lost in the culpepper trade. either way, i'd rather trade down this year.

Wait a minute...the trade was for a 2007 2nd round pick? I thought it was for a 2006 2nd round pick but if is a 2007 then that's good news....I know is still a 2nd rounder but it'd give us time to maybe trade a player for that 2nd rounder.I'm also all for moving down if we can actually find a team to trade with but the other good thing is that by not getting Brees we can use some money to get 2 or 3 more free agents.

Ozzy rules!!

I'm on the wagon. Trade down grab Ko Simpson and grab some extra picks regardless what year this 2nd is from. Although I wouldn't be surprised or upset if we stayed at 16 and took Chad Jackson.

im on that bandwagon! i hope we can grab cromartie late in the 1st and grab an o lineman with the other pick we get.

Lets trade down and get back that 2nd rd.

we definately should trade down. if we could trade down to the point where we still get a starting DB in the first and get a 2nd round we would be golden. before next season we need to get in some way shape or form a DB, SS, LB, G, and maybe a DT and WR- if this happens i will pencil us in for the division title and a first round bye.

this years draft is stacked with LB and we could nab a pretty good one in the second which would be ideal. so if in the culpepper trade the 2nd round pick was next years this may not matter but if it was this years we need to find a way to get more picks.

even if it is next years pick i would still not be opposed to trading down unless someone great unbeleivably falls to the 16 pick.

Are we sure it is a 2007 2nd rounder? I believe the scroll on the bottom of the screen on ESPN keeps saying 2006 2nd rounder.

no, it looks like it's indeed a 2006 2nd round pick. so now i DEFINTELY want to trade down.

Yeah, I'd say trade down ONLY if one of these two players are not available at 16: Jimmy Williams or Chad Greenway. But if one of those two are not available, trading down to the end of the first would be smart, where we could still pick up a guy like Cromartie, Jason Allen (Who I know Saban likes), Ko Simpson, and others.

Broncos | Team shopping two first-round picks

<A href="http://www.kffl.com/link/137">Jeff Legwold, of the Rocky Mountain News (http://www.kffl.com/link/168), reports the Denver Broncos (http://www.kffl.com/team/15/nfl) are shopping their two first-round picks in the 2006 NFL Draft (http://www.kffl.com/link/159) in exchange for early picks in the 2007 NFL Draft (http://www.kffl.com/link/159). The team does not have much cap space left after paying out several up-front signing bonuses.

maybe we can get Denver to swap our #16 for their 2 first rounders, #s 22 and 29 overall. we could then get Manny Lawson and a top CB like Tye HIll or Cromatie or go with Mangold.

The Broncos would be giving up way too much to move up 6 spots, so no way that they'd do that.

Manny Lawson has never been my top pick for the draft but if we can trade down to the 40-45th pick we could land Manny and acquire an additional pick(s). That sounds like the best scenario to me at this point.

We need to trade down Saban that 2nd we lost wouldnt be so painful if we could trade down and get 2 good players.

We'd have to give up more than that. Ricky maybe? If he is cleared. That would put us in great position to grab Simpson and Mangold/Carpenter.

Yes we know that now. When the deal first when down multiple sources were saying 2007.

I think we have a chance at trading down. There are lots of teams that need running backs that will still be there when we pick but may not be there when they pick. Jacksonville, Indy, and even the Steelers may have interest in moving up to get a player such as Lendale White or Demetrius Williams before someone else does. This obviously depends on who they really want. But there are a few scenarios that could allow us to trade down. Not sure if it would happen but I would be please with the move unless someone who we really could use is there when its our team.

We need some dancen partners but no doubt we ned to get value picks back...God it almost seems like Wanny and Spiel are pissen away more picks.

TRADE DOWN and get some SPEED,SIZE and YOUTH.

Is this really true? I thought it was this years number two? I mean, we got Daunte for next years #2? that just cannot be. No way! :sidelol:

I think Saban will have guys ranked and be looking for his guys to be there at 16 or fall. I think Saban stays at 16 and picks if:

Huff
Vince young
or Greenway is there or otherwise we will trade down. There may be some others he may want at that pick like other LB's or CB's but we seem to be filling those spots in FA.

03-23-2006, 10:52 PM
why would we draft young. isnt cleo lemon supposed to be that project QB thats being groomed until daunte retires? i woulda liked to get young before the daunte trade, but that wouldnt be such a great pick. Huff is a different story, would love to get him, but thats HIGHLY unlikely.
