Default What would it take to move up to get Wentz or Lynch?

What would you be comfortable giving up?

Let's assume, for the sake of argument, we need to move up at least 14 spots.

You're Elway... Make your offer to the Falcons at #17 or Eagles at #13.

I'd offer #31 and #64, next year's 1st, CJ and Marshall to the Eagles and no CJ to Falcons.

Someone has to play QB and we could use the extra $15M we dont give Brock to fill holes. Does Kubiak really want try his luck with another scrub QB (schaub)? I doubt it. And Marshall and CJ are probably gone next year anyway. I think they view CJ as an injury risk to be honest.

Take a look at the salary structure of the guy taken at #17 in last years draft.

Wentz won't even be at #3.

If Houston takes Brock, and LA (ugh) signs RG3...would we even have to move up? Who else would be taking a QB in round 1?

Look at teams like the Saints, Bears, Jets, Redskins, Chiefs, Steelers if he slides and you also have to worry about the teams with early 2nd's jumping in front of us. We would need to get into the teens at least according to most.

It's two firsts and two other draft picks at least to move up outside the top ten.

Please tell me why everyone jumps on the coat tails of all of these so called experts. Most of these outlets don't even do their own research but rely on the write-ups of all of the "experts" . There are QB's that are or can be NFL ready in later rounds. One must not read into what they say and watch or form their own opinion on players coming out of college.

Look at history there have been far more flops and complete swing and misses in the draft just because of hype. Don't believe the hype!

This is all a moot point. The Broncos will re-sign Brock. They will not trade up for Wentz, no matter what. And they might trade up for Lynch only if he drops to the twenties. Highly unlikely.

Who said that's the only other option?

Maybe we sign Brock ?

I would be okay with Fitz as Plan B if we couldn't sign Brock personally I wouldn't want to give up two First Round picks and one of are btter players and a late-round pick to move in a position to maybe draft him and then to find out he's a bust.

Wentz we would have to move up to #2 for. Goff, likely top 10.

Cook and Lynch seem to be falling so we could probably snag guys like them at #31.

Lynch could possibly fall to us. Wentz is out of the question. Lynch would probably be a nightmare if you started him as a rookie.

Pretty much this.

The only ways you draft good QBs anymore are suck and luck. You have to either have an historically bad season the year before there are great guys coming out, or you completely luck out on a Tom Brady or Russell Wilson. Who knows? Maybe we did it a third way with Osweiler. That remains to be seen.

They are second year guys. In a good year for QBs, these guys would be 2nd rounders. None of this year's QBs are top ten guys.

It will be Dak Prescott.

And we won't have to trade up for him.

Alrighty then, so much for my predictions. Maybe Lynch is plan B, but in Elway I Trust.

I think there is a QB who John might like that falls far enough for him to move up without selling out this draft or future drafts.

We have a ton of picks this year.

Glad we won a SB last year but should be able to compete with a serviceable O and a D that is close to what they did last year.

Connor Cook, Dak Prescott, or Hackenburg in the 2-3 rounds. Might need to move up in the 2nd for Cook, or take him in the first.
