Denver wants out of Round One
Others have probably seen this; I am interested in the OM board's take on this.
I for one. am hopeful that it is true.
DENVER STILL WANTS OUT OF ROUND ONE
We continue to hear that the Denver Broncos are trying hard to get out of round one in 2005, and we've now learned that they're hoping to finagle an extra first round pick for next year in exchange.
A league source has confirmed that the Broncos are indeed making calls in an effort to slide down from the 25th overall pick, and per the source the team is asking for a 2006 first-rounder in exchange.
As we see it, if it's gonna happen, it'll happen on draft day, when a team who drafts next in the top half of round two sees a chance to spring back into round one and nail a guy whom they really want, like the Bills did in 2004, when they sent their second round pick to the Cowboys in order to get back into round one, snagging quarterback J.P. Losman.
So don't be surprised if next Saturday a trade is announced after the 24th name is announced in the first round, allowing the Broncos to drop down -- and to pocket a high-end pick in 2006.
