This is coming for PFT so take for what it is worth. Plus why not try and stir the pot a little.

BRONCOS "DESPERATE" TO EXIT ROUND ONE

A league source tells us that the Denver Broncos are "desperate" to trade their first round pick in the draft, the 25th overall selection.

The reason for their desire to trade down is that they simply don't want to spend the money required via the slotting system on a first-round pick. Instead, they'd prefer to pick up multiple lower-round selections.

The Broncos have a history of mining gold in the later rounds, and mixed experiences at the top of the draft. They did well last year with linebacker D.J. Williams, but they also have picked guys like Willie Middlebrooks, Deltha O'Neal, and Marcus Nash during the reign of Head Coach/Grand Poobah Mike Teflonahan.

Enh, I dunno... sounds like PFT is throwing something on the wall and hoping it sticks. If they were to trade out of R1 and pick up 2 picks in R2/R3, then I could live with that I guess.

Probably true. It just seems exactly like something Carl would do.

If you're drafting in the final 7 or picks of R1 and have the chance to add 2 picks in R2/R3... I think you have to consider it, depending on "where" in R2 that extra pick may be.

So, Denver has #25 and #56 overall picks. If they were able to turn that #25 into a #30-40 pick and a #50-65 pick, I think it would be interesting to consider.
