This draft is much deeper in rounds 2-4 than it was last year. I feel very confident (based on our needs) that Denver can move from 28 down to the 30s and get guys at positions we can use help at (LB, DL, S, RB, etc.) and have a variety of starters. They were able to do make out well in 2011. We just need to get players who can contribute right away.
I'd like to see us move down from #28 (unless one of their first round graded prospects is available) and pick up an additional pick or two. There is great value at the positions listed above in those areas. I'd like to see us be able to address all of them and get a shot at other prospects who can contribute. I think we need to trade down unless someone who is awesome is there. I really doubt there is going to be a significant value between guys at #28 and say #35. If you can move back to there with a team interested in Nassib, Manuel, Barkley, etc. and end up getting another early to mid-round pick, why not?
We will have to wait and see how the board falls. If they stand pat at #28, it tells me they are getting a guy with a first round grade.
Yeah, this is the dream scenario. But a lot depends on who is there and what the offer is. I think everyone would love to trade down this year and pick up an extra 3rd. Just hope like hell that J'Ville, the Jets, and Buffalo pass on the quarterbacks with their first round picks and freak out when we're at 28. Geno, Nassib, and Barkley falling to us would be a freaking dream.
