Default Denver looking to trade down, per schefter

Draft picks 10-12 could see tradesEmail Print Comments 6Share3 retweet 22By Adam Schefter

An offseason filled with trades could continue straight into Thursday night's NFL draft, and picks 10 through 12 might be where the action will happen.

A cluster of teams -- No. 10 Jacksonville, No. 11 Denver and No. 12 Miami -- is interested in moving back in the draft, according to multiple league sources.



Meanwhile, another cluster of teams -- No. 18 Pittsburgh, No. 23 Green Bay and No. 24 Philadelphia -- is interested in moving up in the draft.



Teams will be cautious about trading into Jacksonville's spot at No. 10 because the team that picks might have to negotiate off the complex deal that San Francisco and Michael Crabtree struck last season.



Crabtree, who fell to No. 10 in the 2009 draft and held out through training camp and the opening weeks of the season, signed a contract paying him more than the picks taken ahead of him, setting a tricky precedent for teams at that slot this year.



Denver's spot at No. 11, one spot ahead of Miami, could have more appeal because the Crabtree contract would not be looming over it.

Sweet! That's the stuff I like to hear. Trade down. Get more picks.

Philly has a nice stash of picks. Move to their #24, take Pouncey and grab extra bodies on the 2nd and 3rd day.

I won't be. He's fulfilling Bowlen's request for our QBOTF.

I won't be either since we will still have three seconds as a result of trading back. But, I promise you, there will be a meltdown of epic proportions!

I won't freak out. If we trade down to 24 and get another 2nd, I would be happy. We could do some serious damage with 3 2nd round picks.

The type of talent that will be available in the 2nd round is going to surprise everyone.

Tebow would get us some more primetime games and a direct link to God.

I really don't think he'll fall that far... but if he does I wouldn't be too upset with the pick. It actually makes a ton of sense for both Bowlen and McD. It would bring a huge fan base to the club. Ticket sales would be reinvigorated, jersey sales, not to mention the fact that it buys McD some time to develop his "hand picked QB". I could see it going down...

Add a golden-domer like Tate and we would never lose again.

Oh, I could definitely see it going down. If ever a player embodied what McD wants in terms of intangibles it's Tebow.

I think there are more important needs than Tebow. He would not play for three years. I also don't know how long Pouncey will last. So many have him "picked" that I think the chances of Broncos getting him are jinked inless they take him at 11.......

So if a bunch of teams around us want to move down, will it drive down the price of moving up to that part of the draft? I am all for moving down. We need a lot of interior line help and there are a lot of good prospects in the late first-third rounds.

which automatically makes me think it's some sort of smoke screen. McD isn't the kind of guy who would let this info out if it's true. Anything he lets out has some sort of motive behind it.

Pretty much anything you hear this week comes with a very high probability that it is BS put out there to throw off other teams.

Trading down might have its advantages but this team needs impact, blue chip players. I think they're is a better chance of drafting those type guys in the 11 spot.

When the Broncos lost the coin toss to Jacksonville, they really won the best spot in the first round.

Ahh the double smoke screen. He smoke screened the smoke screen so that means he will take who he said he would.
