Default Broncos trying to trade up for number one overall? Per Florio from PFT.

Found this tidbit as a throwaway line in a free agent QB article posted today on PFT. Darnold or Allen?

Thank heavens that article is incorrect on its face ... we don't have enough money or winning potential to lure Cousins, so the horrifying notion we would trade up for the first overall pick is also likely incorrect ... whew.

Some reports say the Browns will take the running back #1. The Broncos could move up to the Giants spot and still get the quarterback they want. This report sound bogus to me.

Stupid reporting “The Broncos can shrug and say we’ll sign Coucins instead” Then the Browns can shrug and say go ahead. Then maybe they’ll call the Giants and threaten to sign Cousins if the Giants ask to much, and the Giants will shrug and say go ahead too.

Right now it's all a guessing game

Err...they can't just go out and sign Cousins if a trade up doesn't work out.

The fan in me is potentially excited about this, the logical person in me says it's too early to be reporting talks of a potential trade up.

Every team has plans A through Z. First couple of dominos to fall will put some variation of them all in motion. Won’t believe very much until March 14th.

Im glad Elways is turning over every stone early so they know their options fully before making decisions.

Hope we don't waste time in FA waiting for Cousins to make his decision or spend the money he's likely to command. I'm just over Cousins and eager to sign a top 5 QB. id love to see a great draft but do what it takes to get your guy.

Moving up would be so ****ing stupid. Draft a QB at #5 and use the money saved from $30m a year Cousins to fortify the O-Line.

What’s stupid is to wait and draft whatever QB falls to 5. If they need to move up then so be it.

Because they don't want to miss out on their QB.

When all is said and done I think we're trading up.

Given that there's no consensus number one, I just don't see the point.

If you identify 1 QB that is your guy.

If they move up to #1 it better be for Barkley.

I don't know why Denver, or any team, would think they have the ability to do that when history so clearly proves otherwise.

Funny, didn’t the Eagles trade up for Wentz?

Elway (and the Giants, Colts, and Jets) wouldn't be doing their jobs if they weren't gauging how much a trade up to #1 would cost at this point. And that's all that line indicates, Elway trying to figure out how much the Browns will want for the pick, not that Denver is actively trying to trade up to #1.

There's a yearly article from Klis a couple days before the draft saying the Broncos have explored options to move up and move down if the draft goes in certain directions.

The top of the draft hasn't even solidified yet (QB-wise) since the Combine just ended, and no QB has had their team visits with private workouts yet.

There's just nothing there . . . yet.

The thought of trading for #1 makes me hard.
The reality of overpaying for #2 makes me soft..
