It seems most completely dismiss the possibility the Broncos will draft a QB with the 2nd pick in 1st round. The speculation goes that Tebow will be dealt to another team like Carolina on the basis that the Broncos (read that Elway) does not believe he is a "franchise" QB. Some have speculated John is just blowing smoke, others that he is dead set on getting that franchise QB. What I would be curious to chew on is the possibility of a sign and trade, just as the Colts did with Elway (albeit) at the end of a gun so to speak.
If we can't trade down the curiosity is whether a sign and trade could be pulled off that ultimately nets more picks than just trading back. Perhaps, this would open up possibilities of not only acquiring picks but a player or two, or three that could fill some immediate holes. Does anyone think Shannahan might be capable of such an opportunity? Might this scenario open up the competition to far more teams? Would the Broncos have the..aaah..stones to weather the initial storm of fan outrage and sports media condemnation?
Okay, okay, you say, this is ridiculous! Bring on the draft before we're all driven nuts by this speculation. Well, I agree. Bring on the dang draft!
