Interesting draft strategy

An interesting draft scenario (assuming the CBA gets done):

 

Denver trades #2 to CIN for #4, #35, #100

Denver trades Orton to MIN for #43

 

This gives us #2, #35, #36, #43, #46, #68, #100, #188, #194, #244

 

Next, Denver trades #36, #43, #46 and #100 (1550 points) to CLE for #6 (1600 points), to SF for #7 (1500 points) or the same package without #100 (now a total value of 1450 points) to TEN for #8 (1400 points) 

Dkn what reasons these teams would have for trading down, but with a package like this, I’d bet one of these teams could be tempted enough to pull the trigger.

 

My goal in this draft is to obtain 2 of the 5 players that I believe with have the highest impact on the defensive side of the ball.  These 5 players are (in no particular order) Dareus, Fairley, Miller, Peterson and Bowers.  I believe with picks 4 and 6-8 we can land 2 of these players. For the sake of actually putting players to these picks, I’m going to proceed by taking Dareus at 4 and miller at 6-8. 

 

I would also like to end up with Stephen Paea at #35 as I think he is one of the better playmakers in the draft and will do wonders for our run defense while providing an adequate pass rush for a DT. 

 

 

So:

 

#4   DT Marcel Dareus

#6-8   SLB Von Miller

#35 DT Stephen Paea

 

 Leaving us with:

#68   - 

#100 – maybe

#188 – TE Julius Thomas - i like him as a late round flier

#194 –

#244 -

 

 

How does everybody feel about the first few picks of this draft?  also how would you all fill out the remaining picks? would you aim for a different 2 of the 5 players?

 

I'm interested to hear everybody's thoughts on this scenario.
