The Denver Broncos have traded their 4th round choice -- the 125th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft -- to the Green Bay Packers. In return, they received 5th and 6th round draft choices from the Packers.
Broncos got 146 in 5th round, 173 in 6th round from Packers in return for trading out of 4th round (125).— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) April 27, 2013
The Green Bay Packers used the pick to select RB Johnathan Franklin, a great value pick in my book, and someone whose stock was seemingly rising as the draft approached.
I generally like the value of the 4th round pick for the 5th and 6th the Broncos received, but knowing that pick went to a team that selected a running back I was high on is tough to swallow. Drafting Eddie Lacy didn't stop the Packers from drafting Johnathan Franklin anyway; why should drafting Montee Ball have prevented the Broncos from doing the same?
The Broncos got their seven draft picks back with this move, so I'm a fan, but the Broncos and I aren't seeing eye-to-eye when it comes to value picks in this draft.
