Sure. If there's one out there to be had that's worth it. Not sure if there is though.

Well...I think they would only do a deal involving a higher pick if Stewart and the broncos had a agreeable contract on the table.

Cost less and it's been said many a time. RB's don't have hardly any learning curve for the NFL and can provide instant production.

No thanks, I'd keep the pick.

Don't understand the logic there. We're going to turn down a guaranteed 3rd round pick in the 2012 draft to MAYBE get a 3rd round pick in the 2014 draft? I'm not buying it. Simple posturing.

Yeah, a late 3rd at best, a year from now, that they can't use in any trades. Almost as good!

Did I miss something in this article?

The board is assuming a 3rd round pick..The article doesn't say 3rd round pick. It's premise is moderate to low. Based on they will sit pat and get a 3rd comp pick I would logically assume moderate to low from the article means 4th or lower.

We're assuming a 3rd round pick, because multiple sources have announced that we've already offered a third (plus some other late round pick). Even if they are false, think about it. What's bettter? A 4th in the 2012 draft or a potential 3rd round comp pick (which is essentially a 4th anyway since they don't come until the very end of the 3rd round) two years later in 2014 (if they keep him this season and let him go at the end of the year in FA, they don't get a 2013 comp pick, they'll get a 2014 pick).

Why wait 2 more years for something that may in all likelihood be WORSE compensation? Is having him on your roster this year with two other more than capable backs really worth that?

Multiple sources alway said Manning was a Titan. So much for that inside information

Why do you assume the article knew of the rumors from rotoworld. That's all I'm saying. The article is sound in it's premise and it's known facts. All the other stuff is being applied to the article from outside sources or rumors from rotoworld.
Just odd that ppl want to apply two independent and discrete sources together

The "I know what comp picks team X will get for players Y and Z" crowd is just as bad as the "trade down" crowd or the "our UDFA at X position is a diamond in the rough" crowd on this site.

I think they'll stick with Knowshon and McGahee. Ted Bartlett seems to think Knowshon is going to fit pretty well in a Manning-style offense
Quote:
The position that I think is interesting is RB. I actually think that this is the kind of nickel-all-the-time offense that Knowshon Moreno was born to play in, and if he can stay healthy, I give him a really good chance of being the number-one guy, by virtue of his superior blocking and receiving ability. Heís really like a more talented version of Joseph Addai. Both Moreno and McGahee will get to run against a lot of six- and seven-man boxes, and thatís the trick to maximizing the running game on a per-play basis. The Broncos may only run 20 times per game, but their yards per carry will almost certainly be high.

"stay healthy" is the big question mark with knowshon. If he does, I will be surprised - but Mcgahee seems adequate for the task, IMO

Yeah I would be surprised if he made the team. What a waste of a pick.

didnt we have "nickel all the time" offense in 2009 with McD's pass happy spread offense?..

the Broncos brass can't be dumb enough to think that we don't need to add another RB...

He did well, when he had room to run. As somebody already mentioned, teams will be playing the pass. Knowshon COULD still work out...

I don't want to waste any picks on offense skill players - defense only. We won't know what we have on offense until week 4- why fix what may not be broken?

Defense, defense, defense........and defense. Let Manning "raise the boat" on offense. This will happen, watch.

The Draft is suppose to be deep at RB this year, heck look at Arian Foster from the Texans he was a 'Undrafted' running back.

I would rather the Broncos use a late round draft pick and get someone younger with fresher legs than trading for running back.

If the Broncos trade for anything.. trade for a DT.
