Default guys you would trade up for.

I am not a proponent of trading up. The draft is such a crap shoot that you need as many bites of the apple as you can get. But if I was going to trade up I would try and get mike Evans. He is going to be great.

No one. There isn't anyone I want to trade up for. It's like once you trade up for someone, the football gods doom him.

This draft is supposed to be very deep with talent

I wouldn't trade up for anyone

Maybe if Khalil Mack falls to the twenties, which isn't going to happen, I would entertain the idea

Only if C.J. Mosely falls to late 20's. I think he would address our biggest need and I wouldn't mind giving up a low rounder to get him.

If youre gonna play that game, his screw ups led to us getting Peyton.

I'm over it. Long over it.

And Von Miller. I'm glad where the Broncos are now, and hope they learned from McD's mistakes. So far so good. Still hate McDaniels though.

I don't understand why McDaniels get heat for not drafting Earl Thomas but Elway gets a pass for not drafting Richard Sherman or Bobby Wagner.

Because Elway didn't trade a #1 pick for a current 2nd to take a bust.
McDaniels was horrible. He did not develop a single player. The development of those drafted players came after he was long gone.

It's not that McDaniels didn't draft Thomas, its that he traded a first round pick for a scrub CB that was worthless. Don't trade a first next year for a second. He mortgaged the future for something he wanted then (even though I think he admitted he didn't have much time to even prepare for the draft that first year). McDaniels wouldn't have drafted Thomas anyway, and would have wasted that pick too, most likely, so the point is moot.

While that was a not so great draft he clearly made up for it in the next draft and I believe he only had a few months to prepare for it.

Doesn't excuse giving up the 1st for Alphonso though.

I also hate Mcdaniels. But he gave us DT, and albeit he did not coach the team, by giving us Tebow he gave us one heck of a fun season.

I'll give you that. I really didn't expect much out of that year and didn't expect us to get as far as we did....

Awful indeed. I can't believe some Broncos fans still try to defend that guy.

The Alphonso Smith saga was one of the worst. Trading up for a guy that you basically cut the next year- how is that even defendable?

In the spirit of the OP, I'll play along.

Jadeveon Clowney. Denver is in "win now" mode, and while the Jags are looking for a QB, they are in a weird spot. So Denver packages a bunch of high picks to take the draft pick they believe will have the most immediate impact on their team. The Jaguars, a team that needs help everywhere and is content to go BPA, allows the trade and uses the bevy of picks to infuse their young team with more talent.
