More trade down ideas and mock draft.

I again think that if The Denver Broncos can trade down from the #2 pick in the draft that they will jump at the chance.  I think Denver has a ton of needs and only 4 Good Draft Picks.    Denver has a bunch of team needs DT , S , LB , QB , RB , TE , RT and will look to trade down if possible.


The question is will Arizona , Cincinatti , Tennessee , Washington , or The Vikings trade up. 

I think Arizona is probably in the best shape to trade up and draft Blaine Gabbert.


Trade #1 - Denver trades it's 1st Round Pick to Arizona for their 1st , 2nd and 3rd Round Picks.  This comes with in a few points on what the NFL Draft Value Chart says.    Arizona drafts Blaine Gabbert.

Trade #2  -  Denver trades it's 1st Round Pick #5 to Dallas for their 1st , 3rd and 2012 3rd Round Pick.  Dallas drafts Patrick Peterson.

Trade  #3 -  Denver trades it's 1st Round Pick #9 to New England for their 1st(17th) , 2nd(60th) , 4th Round PIck.



17th Pick in the NFL Draft ---------------------------------------------------------------------   Marvin Austin - DT - UNC - 6'3" 309lbs - Austin is rising up draft boards with teams like New Orleans and Chicago looking at him very hard.


2nd Round Pick (36) -----------------------------------------------------------------------------  Mikel Leshoure - RB - Illinois - 6'0" 225lbs - Leshoure has been compared to Steven Jackson.


2nd Round Pick (#38)----------------------------------------------------------------------------  Jabaal Sheard - DE - Pitt - 6'4" 265lbs - Denver drafts another DE to rotate in with Dumervil/Ayers.


2nd Round PIck (#46)----------------------------------------------------------------------------  Mason Foster - LB - Washington - 6'2" 242lbs - Denver drafts this very good LB.


2nd Round Pick (#60) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------   Kendrick Ellis - DT - Hampton - 6'4" 345lbs - Denver drafts this BIG DT to rotate in with Austin/Vickerson and a FA.


3rd Round Pick (#67)-----------------------------------------------------------------------------  James Brewster - OT - Indiana - 6'5" 317lbs - Brewster has all the tools to be a very good RT.


3rd Round PIck (#69) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------   Chris Culliver - FS - South Carolina - 6'0" 199lbs -  Culliver has the size and speed to be a great FS in the NFL.


3rd Round Pick (#71) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------    Jalil Brown - CB - CU - 6'1" 204lbs - Denver drafts this very tall CB.


4th Round Pick (#125) --------------------------------------------------------------------------    DaNorris Searcy - SS - UNC - 5'11" 222lbs - Searcy is a very solid SS.


6th Round Pick ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------    Henry Hynoski - FB - Pitt - 6'0" 260lbs - Denver drafts this BIG FB.


6th Round Pick ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------    Julius Thomas - TE - Portland St -  6'5" 246lbs - Denver drafts this former Basketball player.


7th Round Pick ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------    Lee Smith - TE - Marshall - 6'6" 269lbs -   Good Blocking TE.



Final thoughts -  I truely believe that if Denver can trade down from the #2 spot it will do so.  The team has sooo many needs and could pick up 6 Extra Picks by trading from #2 to #17.

Marvin Austin and Kendrick Ellis would give Denver 2 good DT's to build the Defense around.

Jabaal Sheard , Chris Culliver , Jalil Brown , DaNorris Searcy would also give Denver 4 more Talented Players on a Defense STARVING for Youth and Talent.

On Offense Denver would get Mikel Leshoure , James Brewster , Henry Hynoski , Julius Thomas , Lee Smith.  This would fill in some major holes on offense at RB , RT and TE.

 Denver would add 7 guys on Defense and 5 on Offense and start rebuilding what McDaniels destroyed.
