2nd Pick Will Most Likely Have More Value Than Ever

For years now the top picks in the draft have been just as much a curse as a blessing.  There has even been talk many times of teams just letting the time on the clock expire so they could pick lower.  Instead of being a reward top 5 picks have often been an albatross for a team because it involved giving tens of millions in guaranteed dollars to a prospect you might be just lukewarm on.  And because of this trading those picks has been just as hard and almost impossible to get fair value for, because teams would weigh out the financial burden that came along with picking that high.  This will most likely all change this year.

 

Because it seems likely at this point that the new collective bargaining agreement will include a rookie wage scale in it, that will make it so top five picks no longer get bigger signing bonuses than All-Pro players, the value of a top three pick could greatly inflate this year.  Even following the pick value you chart it is astounding to see the possible real value the Broncos could reap for the 2nd overall pick which is worth 2600 points.

10th Overall Pick - 1300

26th Overall Pick - 700

31st Overall Pick- 600

 

Now I know that the value you chart is not the Bible and many teams do not even pay attention to it, but I do think it is a good indicator of what the Broncos might be able to parlay their pick into.  If given the following three picks here is how I would use them.

 

Round 1 Pick 10: Stephen Paea NT, Oregon

Round 1 Pick 26: Travis Lewis OLB, Okalhoma

Round 1 Pick 31: Kyle Rudolph TE, Notre Dame    OR Cameron Jordan DE/DT, California

 

Now I love Nick Fairley and think he would be an impact player for us, but our team needs a lot more help then just one player can provide right now.  What do you think, is the best value for our pick to take one major impact player or parlay it into a couple of first round studs?
