Rumor from Denver

Just heard from a friend in the Denver area who has some access to the Denver Broncos.

According to him, the Broncos are seriously considering trading down from their #2 pick with the objective of getting a lower pick in round 1 plus a pick in the second round. As things stand now, the Broncos have 3 picks in the top 50 but the thinking at the moment is that the Broncos need upgrades in enough places that the #2 pick is best used to get 2 players instead of only 1.

Two teams mentioned as potentially interested in such a deal are the Saints and the Dolphins. [Aside: I don't know what the Saints might do with the #2 overall pick but I would have to think the Dolphins would use it on a QB.]


This is a RUMOR - - but it comes from someone whose knowledge of the workings of the Broncos has been pretty good in the past.

Well Darth Hoody and the Patriots have the ammo to move up if they want.

The Patriots are going to steal the draft this year and get younger (if that's possible) and better. They are loaded with high round draft picks.

Re: Rumor from Denver

Yeah there's been talk that they'd look to trade out because they're not prepared to pay anyone 2nd overall draft money. So unless things change with pay scales, they'll probably seriously consider trading out. Good luck finding a partner though.

As for the Saints, one rumor had them sending Pierre Thomas to New England for a pick

Re: Rumor from Denver

for the redskins perceptive, I'd only trade for that pick for Nick Fairley only. And really I wouldn't do that, so no thanks to the #2 overall pick.

They've said that for 2 years now. As for Denver there is also talks of them Trading Orton also. Who know's at this point. If we were to trade up I would take Peterson or Miller but aint happening

I don't think I'd go get Fairley to play DE in a 3-4. If we were in a 4-3 then yes, I'd get him as a 3-tech, but in a 3-4 I think he'll be less effective.

Very simple. My friend would not want his identity known on a site related to an NFL team; it would not do him any good professionally. So, I have tried to give folks here an idea of what he told me and a generic description of his history related to the Broncos franchise.

If you prefer not to read about rumors - - where even if sources are cited they are probably not all that authoritative or else it would not be a rumor - - stay away from threads with that in the title.

Re: Rumor from Denver

Wrong direction in the draft. We need to move out of the top 10, asap. We need draft picks.

How do you think that rumors get started and there become sources to cite? It's not like teams run to the papers with every idea that they think of lol

Re: Rumor from Denver

We need to find a way to get 10 draft picks this year so we can draft 10 offensive lineman and run an offense with 1 QB, 1 RB, 1 TE, and 8 Offensive Lineman. Sometimes we'll take one offensive lineman out and put in a second Tight End. We'll call that our spread formation. Oh and no QB's drafted on day 1. This offense is strictly limited to serviceable veterans and young developmental late round prospects who will never see the field because they are "developing."
