View Full Version : Broncos looking to trade up?

Highly doubt this happens, but you never know.

Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert publicly announced that his team had held conversations with the St. Louis Rams about obtaining the No. 1 overall pick.

It will be interesting to see if the Denver Broncos are as forthcoming with their internal conversations.

I am told that some of the reason that Denver has been asking for picks rather than veteran players in return for Brandon Marshall and Tony Scheffler is that the club is considering making a significant proposal to the Rams for the first overall pick.

The Broncos feature Kyle Orton as their starting quarterback and recently acquired Brady Quinn, but head coach Josh McDaniels is thought to be very high on Sam Bradford and could see Orton as a stopgap starter until Bradford is ready to take over.

The Broncos own four picks within the draft's top 80 selections, including the 11th overall. Josh McDaniiels has shown a willingness to trade future picks in the past. He traded Denver's 2010 first round pick to Seattle last year for the right to move up in the second round and select Wake Forest cornerback Alphonso Smith.

Talk increases that Rams would trade down on the cheap
Posted by Mike Florio on April 20, 2010 6:53 AM ET
The draft is two days away, and there's growing talk in league circles that the Rams would be willing to trade out of the No. 1 overall selection for a package far less than the outdated draft trade chart would require.

The thinking is that, if the Rams stay put, they'd feel compelled to take quarterback Sam Bradford with the No. 1 overall pick. But there's a concern that Bradford, who hasn't played much football since 2008, will end up on the bench for most if not all of 2010, while A.J. Feeley or Keith Null or someone else takes the snaps. (Then there's the whole "exploding shoulder" thing and the whole "spread offense" thing, which Bradford tried unconvincingly to explain away during a Monday interview on Jim Rome Is Burning.)

Some believe that the Rams, who have won six games in three years, would prefer to pick a player who can step right in and play -- and if they can acquire more picks or, perhaps even better, extra players who can immediately contribute, it would be a bonus.

Then there's the value that comes from stepping away from having to fork over the record contract that the first overall pick will receive, especially if it's a quarterback.

So who would trade up? The primary candidates are the Redskins (No. 4), the Browns (No. 7), and possibly the Seahawks (No. 6).

And for those of you who think that the Redskins wouldn't pick a quarterback in round one, the one quarterback they'd potentially pick is Bradford, whom offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan would begin to develop behind the scenes, potentially with the idea of coach Mike Shanahan engineering a torch-passing to Kyle after two or three seasons with Donovan McNabb at the helm.

For the Rams, the biggest question is whether they'd be willing to take the heat for taking a package that would pale in comparison to the deals done in past years at the top of round one. Given that the Rams have suffered through far greater indignities of late relating to and arising from on-field performance (or lack thereof), they should be thrilled to be criticized for making a move that potentially will improve their current circumstances significantly.

If we trade our two 2nd rounders I'll flip the **** out. Still pissed over Smith. I'm still boggled how McDaniels though Smith would be better than a 1st round pick this year. The 14th pick would be ****ing awesome.

We have TWO 2nd rounders next year. I could see us potentially trading THAT PICK + our 1st rounder to move up, or that pick + a 2nd rounder this year to move up.

Dude! If Doom isn't on board with getting a franchise QB then he can take a hike. I personally would prefer a trade down UNLESS you had an opportunity for Sam Bradford.

Browns may want to move down also. Going to be an interesting draft.


Browns could be caught in a vise at No. 7
Posted by Mike Florio on April 20, 2010 12:35 PM ET

As the draft gets closer, there's one team that is believed to be "panicking" based on its position in the top ten.

With five or six truly elite players in the draft pool (Sam Bradford, Ndamukong Suh, Gerald McCoy, Trent Williams, Russell Okung, and possibly Eric Berry), the Browns potentially will find themselves with the first pick in the second wave of round one.

As we hear it, the Browns don't believe there's anyone who can sufficiently help them at No. 7 to justify using the pick. They don't sufficiently love cornerback Joe Haden or running back C.J. Spiller to take either of them at that high financial slot. If Berry squirts through, he could be the pick.

So that's why the Browns are exploring a move in either direction. The problem will be to find someone else who wants to use the seventh pick on a player who may not justify the financial investment, given that the team that uses the selection will be faced with the slot-busting Darrius Heyward-Bey contract as a starting point.

The only way the Rams would come down to No. 7 would be to get quarterback Jimmy Clausen. The only way someone would come up would be to get Clausen or Kyle Wilson or Dez Bryant or someone other player that a team in the teens secretly loves.

Either way, that four-game winning streak to end the 2009 season has created an unwanted consequence. The Browns are now stuck in a round-one no-man's-land from which they may not be able to escape.

It makes the most sense for the Seahawks to trade up.

Bradford would probably be a very good fit as a Bronco (great accuracy, great poise, natural athlete), but damn it would cost so much when we need so much.

So first I thought I had to watch out for Tebow, and now it's Bradford? I better start drinking early on Thursday...

The fact that St Louis hasn't negotiated a deal with Bradford or anybody else is pretty telling.

I could see the Rams picking Bradford...then doing a River\Manning swap later in the round for Clausen.

Clausen's agent would then argue that he really was the #1 overall pick.

Sam Bradford is great with protection,but without it he's proven to be injury prone. He reminds me of Chad Pennington great with protection,but a pro-bowl cheerleader without protection when he's out with an injury from 1 hit.

If we mortgage our draft on a QB who is coming off two injuries to his throwing shoulder in the same season with all the needs we have on this team, I will blow a ****ing gasket! In fact, if we package our two seconds to move up without having gotten another second in a trade back, I will be pissed the **** off. This is a deep draft and we have a nice collection of premium picks - don't blow it!

This is just a stupid rumor, and I said it in the first thread where it was mentioned.

Moving to #1 from #11 is a two-tiered move. If Denver was so hot to trot for the 1st overall, Marshall would have been traded in conjunction with #11 to move up as far they could so Denver would still have draft picks to play with for the next move up to #1.

To bring the need to trade Scheffler for draft picks to help facilitate the trade exposes it even more, there was nothing that Denver was going to get for Scheffler that would have put them over the top in a trade for the 1st pick.

There is only one reason why it would ever have to be a two-tiered move, and that is if St Louis demands that any pick in return must be in the top 10. They could very well be fine with the 11 pick in return. Obviously, we'd have to throw in some other picks as well and/or a player like Dumervil. That goes without saying. But it doesn't HAVE to be a two-tiered move at all and I'm not sure why you think so.

#11 + 2nd rounder + Elvis would probably get it done.

(Disclaimer: I in no way think this will happen, nor do I want it to happen. I'm just rebutting the very specific claim above.)

100% all true.

Of course this is all just wild speculation over a highly unlikely scenario...but it is compelling that:

1) Rams appear to want to trade down and they haven't locked up Bradford per tradition
2) They appear willing to trade for cheaper than past years
3) Orton\Quinn is most probably not the answer and Bradford is a good fit for what Josh appears to want to execute
4) Elvis is a valuable chip at a position of need and highly valued role by the defensive minded Spags
5) Clausen would most likely be available at #11

If Denver wanted to do it...they still have the bullets to do it.

Saying all that...it is almost a zero probability due to the past trades that have been executed in the way that they have, as you said.

Additionally, I am in no way condoning this course of action. I would be pissed.

You don't take your most tradeable asset (Marshall) and trade him for something that doesn't advance your long-term goal (moving to the 1st overall). If you want the 1st pick and you have at least 2 teams above you that are interested in Marshall to varying degrees (Seattle and Tampa), you work a deal with those teams so that you've still got a full compliment of picks to make the next move up to #1.

1. Whatever anyone thinks of Quinn, McD obviously loves the guy and at least for now, views him as a long-term answer at QB. You don't try to trade for a young QB on 3 seperate occasions, only to turn around and give up the farm for another QB.

2. Marshall was also a valuable chip at a position of need for a handful of teams above Denver, if you want the 1st pick, you use Marshall to help make that happen even if it's only a stepping stone. Dumervil is someone this team wants to keep, so unlike everyone does on the Interwebz, they're not going to throw him into some deal willy nilly just to make it happen. Elvis also plays a position of need in Denver too, they're not going to trade him if they can find other avenues to help get them to #1, i.e. Marshall.

3. Doubt Clausen falls to #11 on draft day, and that's a huge risk for the Rams if they just sit there. On the Interwebz, everyone thinks someone will always fall. If they truly like Clausen, they cannot move that far down and just hope that he's still there when are on the clock.

It's not that simple. What if neither of those teams were willing to trade out of the top 10?

And I'm not so sure that Marshall was ever our most tradeable asset. Dumervil could very well hold that title, unless you don't think anyone would give up something better than 2 second rounders.

Unless he signed him to a new, big money, contract when I wasn't looking, this couldn't be further from the truth.

If we're throwing out players, Clady is the most tradeable asset. The only problem is that Denver wants to keep both Clady and Dumervil so it's not too realistic to throw them in the mix. Marshall was the most tradeable asset.

And as much as people would like to rag on the Post, I'll still take it's reporting over anything out there with regards to the Broncos. In their article where they reported that Cutler was traded, they said the 2 main deals was the one to Chicago and then one to Cleveland centered around Quinn.

I don't really know college players so I if the player is worth it really but if Broncos could package some picks and get a great QB that seems pretty smart to me.

Maybe Rams would take a combo of the a 1st round pick, a 2nd round pick, and Brady Quinn or Brandstater to drop into Broncos spot in first round

with the way trades are going I don't think it will take that much

You don't trade up to #1, giving up multiple high picks, to get Suh, a NT. Get real. You only do that if you have a QB that you have to have. I love Bradford's game but I'm not so sure I would give up any of these extra picks we got in this deep of a draft. Maybe a weaker draft I wouldn't mind so much, but we are going to be getting good players, lots of them, in the first 3 rounds.

No way the Broncos will fork over the 40 or 50 Million dollars it would take to sign the first pick in the draft.

Right with all of the running the Pats do I could really see us taking a RB in the first round in back to back drafts. You know running being the Patriot way and everything. The Pats have had two thousand yard back from 2000 to 2009. Both those guys came from other teams.

the broncos should trade down and try and get the best center and guard in the draft, considering them as day 1 starters.

I think Denver is far more likely to trade down than up.

The biggest need seems to be on the interior line and you don't need to use the #11 pick on that when you could still probably get one of the best interior linemen in the draft in the 17-24 range. Meanwhile, a trade down could net the Broncos another second round pick or a very high third where they could address other needs such as LB, WR, DL and TE - or even another O-Lineman.

2 rookies starting on the interior OL will get a QB killed.

Could it be any worse than what we saw in the second half of last year though?
