Rumor from Adam Schefter: Knowshon Moreno
Today on 850KOA Adam Schefter said that it is very unlikely that the Broncos will be able to move up to get either BJ Raji or Mark Sanchez. He did say that he has it on good authority that the FO is definately trying to package something so that we can move from #18 to #13. That part he was certain about and said it was a fact.

The RUMOR that he heard is that the Broncos want to have #12 and #13 and would likely take Brian Orakpo (DE from Texas) since Raji wont be available and at #13 they would take Knowshon Moreno.

Thoughts?

(No I dont have a link, he said it on the radio and no I am not making this up)

18 to 13 would probably cost a 3rd.

I think more likely the Broncos try to move to get a top flight RB than any of these QB's in the draft.

Why not just sit tight and wait to see if one of the top 2 RB's fall to us? I like both Beanie and Moreno. I wouldn't be pissed if we used 18 for a RB.

im thinking more and more the deal between washington simply wasnt as good as the bears deal. i doubt they offered teh full flight of 2 1sts and a 3rd, and they sure would not give up campbell for a 5th.

I wouldn't be unhappy with it. If Orapko is there at #12, he would probably be the BPA. If Wells and Moreno are both there at #12, I don't think we need to move up to get Moreno, though. The risk would be NO and SD both go RB before #18.

I think Moreno at 13 would be a bit too high, but they might know of a team that's angling for him somewhere between 13 and 17.

I really miss Schefter on NFLN. He is almost always spot-on with his reports so I would take this over all the other rumors flying around.

I've said for awhile that I would rather have Moreno than Wells if going RB. I would be ok with taking a RB with one of the 1st rounders. Moreno is a complete back who hasn't been injury prone.

Does anyone else think that team is probably the Chargers at #16? They got Sproles on his mega one year deal and there is no certainty Tomlinson will be there after this year. It makes perfect sense for them to take Moreno there.

Yep, Wells to NO at #14 and Moreno at #16 would be the concern.

That would assume Orakpo's there at 12 when most Mocs show him going a bit earlier. I'd like the picks but it seems unlikely they get him without moving up. Taking a RB at 13 when Moreno might be there at 18? Even if he's not is RB a higher priority than a DL guy or LB?

Moreno can Catch. Beanie can not. That is why we would want Moreno over beanie.

Very, very possible. They also want to upgrade at S and LB but RB may be their most pressing need, although they still have LT so they could wait another year or pick an RB lower.

He won't be. But I hope they don't go RB on day 1.

Beanie was in a offense that doesn't throw to the RB. Doesn't mean he can't catch, he just wasn't given the opportunity to catch. Also, on the flip side, who would you rather have as a 3rd in 1 back? I think Wells has better power, and a game similar to Steven Jackson.

That and I think Wells' stock is falling due to concerns over an injured foot.


That being said, I would be estatic to get Orakpo and Moreno.

I think they are 2 of the more explosive players in the draft,

I wouldn't be shocked at all if SD were targetting a RB at 16 simply because

1. Both Tomlinson and Sproles deals are in reality only for one more year given the guarantees and Tomlinson has another roster bonus due in 2010.

2. Jackson wont reach 16 or anywhere near it.

3. They dont need an OT early now cos they're happy with Clary's progress on the right side.

I understand this: However I tell my wife I can go 3 times in a row. I never have but I can.

3rd in 1 will be renamed the "Hillis" Down.

all they need to do is draft the two best defensive players they can in the first round. save the rb for the second round. easy.

Perhaps McD intends to carry on Belichick's "Search for the Lost RB?"

This would be stupid in my opinion...if it is, so they can secure a RB. Give me a break! Draft defense, defense, defense!!! You idiots (McD)!

Stay at 18...if you just have to have another RB (you just paid big bucks for 3 losers in FA!)...then wait until 18...if Moreno and Wells are gone...then take Donald Brown...who I think is probably the best in this draft anyway!
