Default Jones-Drew could take Broncos to SB this year!!

One of the best RBs in the NFL is available now!! Per Adam Schefter.

In light of Jaguars owner Shad Khan's recent public remarks, Jacksonville's RB Maurice Jones-Drew is now open to being traded, per source.

Offer a 1st and lets go win the SB!!

Wow, I would be so excited having Jones Drew, Manning and McGhee. Wow, Denver would be very dominant on offense and Doom Vonwolfe would be sacking those QBs on defense.

A 1st for a running back in his 6th year? Pass...Offer a 3rd and Moreno and be done with it.

His time table is better than Manning's. If Denver wants to win 2 SBs in the next 3 years they are going to have to do something drastic.

And he is a top 5 RB.

I agree a offer of a 1st or 2nd rounder is too much... draft picks are too valuable.

Heck I am disturbed to hear the talk (radio) this morning that if the Broncos would have worked this past draft differently.. they could have drafted with a little wheeling and dealing.

ILB Dont'a Hightower - Who was there with their #1 pick
DT Derek Wolfe - who should have been there on the board with their #2
QB Russell Wilson - which might have required trading up into the 2nd round.

I'll respnd with a copy and past of the best post so far.

I would add Smith as well since Denver ended up giving a 1st rounder for him.

So tell me where is that 1st round value you are speaking of. This is most every team in the nFL. First round picks are a crap shoot. After all the Chefs spent the #11 selection on POE!

Shows how valuable a smart FO really is. Teams with good FOs a 1st rounder is far more valuable than teams whose FO use crayons and mock drafts on draft day. So I'd say a 1st is very valuable depending on the FO at the time. Look at those names then look at who drafted them.

Nothing like attributing the failures of past regimes to the current regime.

"We drafted poorly in the past, so we will always draft poorly," said no logical person ever.

They couldn't be less valuable IMO. Especially a team like the Broncos that, due to player trades and trade downs the last 5 years, have had a Hershel Walker-like bounty of picks to work with and we've come away with next to nothing. I have zero confidence we'll ever be able to come away with anyone better than leage average unless we pick #2 again.

At least 25 or so teams can do this to themselves after every draft. It's not worth stressing over.

You know screw it, I'd be OK with that. This team has to be in a win now mindset. Roll with Willis/Pocket Hercules, Hillman and tell Moreno, Ball and whatever else scrub backs are on the team to piss off.

I think McGahee and Hillman could equal MJDs production this year.

Like a Mike Anderson/Tatum Bell in '05. Move along, if the price is a 1st he isn't worth it.

I would like to see Hillman play in a game 1st. Week 2 and still nothing from him, I wonder if they don't try to move him to PS.

With the mind set of win now I would at least offer the 3rd and Moreno for him as mentioned above but I would be willing to give up a 2nd round pick if they wanted it. Only real problem is finding the money to pay MGD. He would be a great asset to the team, would be great catching passes out of the backfield and if Willis goes down like he did last year MGD could carry the load.

I would love to see this happen but I don't think it will.

We will likely have to watch KM dance his way around the back field for KNo gain rather than watch MGD take it to the house from 65 out.

High pick for a RB? Entering his 7th year? Who wants a big payday? When we just spent a high pick on a RB with a similar build?

If this team makes a desperate moves "to get over the hump" it will be next year, when they better know what the biggest need is in the Peyton offense.

Seems he is re-incarnated as Mock. I swear someone else used to do that too.

Raiders would offer 2 first round draft picks and then they remembered they don't have much, in that department, to offer.

Do the Raiders even have two 1sts over the next two years?

It seems like they pissed a lot away for Palmer.

I agree with "we are in win now mode," but we already have some decent production there at RB. Would it not be better to dangle our 1st rounder for a RT, DT, MLB? RT would improve our run game drastically and allow Manning to carve the defense. Just a thought...

Mock had the great ability to enrage you (while probably laughing at the fact the he did enrage you) and make you laugh at the same time.
