Good value at for the position for a guy who was overvalued. Pretty happy with the deal. Many "experts" have stated that they think there are 50 guys in this draft with 1st round grades. Denver now has three picks in the top 45.

Is this a done deal, and is it confirmed that it's 2 2nds?

Why does it matter what kind of draft picks they get for him as long as McD is running the draft.

The 2nd pick isn't confirmed - but Schefter and ESPN pretty much has put it in stone with a pencil.

I voted yes based on the fact of what other players got traded for. We definitely got the best out of all the offseason trades. I mean, a star QB went for only a second rounder, and we got two of them for a WR. All things considered, this was a good haul.

Broncos got fair deal for Marshall

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on April 14, 2010 8:44 AM ET
The Broncos weren't going to pay Brandon Marshall.

Once you start from that point and accept he wasn't a long-term part of Josh McDaniels' plan, then it's fair to say the Broncos did well in their trade with the Dolphins.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins will send Denver a second-round pick in 2010 and another pick, believed to be their second-rounder in 2011. With money factored in, second-round picks are gold.

The Ravens gave up a third and fourth-round pick for Anquan Boldin, and got a fifth-rounder back along with the receiver. Marshall is essentially a younger, healthier, superior version of Boldin, but with far bigger risks off the field.

Santonio Holmes is Marshall's age and has the off-field risks, but doesn't match Marshall's ability. The Steelers got a fifth-round pick for him. In light of those deals, the Broncos did well.

Make no mistake; this is a good deal for the Dolphins too. The Seahawks got caught not being aggressive enough and Miami just handed Chad Henne a true number one receiver.

On pure football ability, there aren't more than five young receivers in football we'd rather have then Marshall. Bill Parcells loves physical wideouts and Marshall is a rich man's Keyshawn Johnson.

Soon enough, Marshall will just be a rich man.

I think both sides should be happy with this deal. Dolphins get a top wr, denver gets two 2nd rounders for a guy that essentially didn't want to be in a broncos uniform, and if it was for this being the last year of the CBA would've walked and the broncos would've gotten jack ****.

I think Seattle will be kicking themselves for not giving up the 14th pick for Marshall. he would've been worth it.

I think it is confirmed at this point. Just received a text from CBS 4. Says two 2nds.

Trade talks probably get pretty intense... Dolphins could have been pushing Broncos to take the deal before they could call someone else (Seahawks) to see if they'd match (since they have a higher 2nd, and they suck more, arguably)...

Dolphins swapped 2nd rounders with the chargers in the Charlie Whitehurst trade, so they had the 60th pick in the 2nd round, the phins had the 43rd. But yeah, I think the 2nd round is going to have plenty of starters hopefully we don't waste it on Tebow

That ought to make his head swell enough to insure another "b**** slapping session" and a suspension by the league.

So what would have been better, in the long run, 2 2nd rounders (if true), or the #14 pick this year (only)?

2010 #14 pick this year, and extra 2010 second rounder from Marshall trade.

I think the team will definitely trade down from 11 now.

I like two seconds more than one first personally, so yes, I like the compensation.

Ideally I wanted us to keep Marshall, but he's completely unwilling to acknowledge the massive risk his behavior has made him. I guess he didn't have to since he's found a team willing to give him the stupid guaranteed money he felt entitled to, but I'm real happy it wasn't Denver.

The trade isn't horrible. Yes a QB got traded for a 2nd but I feel Marshall has more talent and a longer shelf life than that QB. And that 2nd next year probably won't be as good as the one this year. Miami should do better. I think they should have included Ginn in the trade. Not a real fan but a return man none the less.
