View Full Version : Broncos looking to trade into Top 10

04-26-2007, 10:17 AM
Adam Caplan and Tony Pauline of Scout.com report that the Texans and the Broncos are negotiating a trade that would result in the two teams trading the No. 10 and No. 21 overall picks in the draft.

In moving to No. 10, the Broncos reportedly would be targeting linebacker Patrick Willis, defensive tackle Amobi Okoye, and defensive end Adam Carriker. The primary target could be Willis -- and landing a spot in front of the 49ers will help to ensure that they get him.

It's unclear what the Broncos will be giving up to climb eleven spots. Under the trade chart, the move is worth 500 points.

Denver's second-round pick (No. 56 overall) is worth 340 points. The Broncos' third-round pick (No. 86 overall) is worth 160 points.

And that's a total of 500 points.

The Texans don't have a second-round pick, due to the Matt Schaub trade. They hold the ninth pick (No. 73 overall) in round three.

If Brady Quinn is gone, I'd love to drop from #9 to #21, pick up an extra 2nd and 3rd.

That would give us 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7

Imagine this..

1) WR Dwayne Bowe, LSU
2) C Ryan Kalil, USC
2) DE Ray McDonald, Florida*
2) QB Drew Stanton, Michigan St
3) TE Ben Patrick, Deleware
3) OT Jacob Bender, Nicholls St
4) G Andy Alleman, Akron
6) RB Alonzo Coleman, Hampton
6) P Adam Podlesh, Maryland
7) LB Jake Ford, Central Arkansas
7) LB C.J. Ah You, Oklahoma
7) WR Jeff Samardzija

i like the idea of trading down but if it was me i would take blaylock or staley if we trade down and then get a wr and a qb in the second round but if kalil is there in the second i would really want to get him

I've been this idea for the past 2 weeks. Check out my sig as I predicted a mock based on this scenario.

I still would prefer Brady Quinn, but part of me is thinking with time a good coaching, Stanton could be just as good as Quinn. We have a bunch of needs to fill in this draft and trading down sounds like the best idea if Quinn is not available at #9.

The smart thing for us to do is land Quinn OR....trade down and stock up on picks!
