Looking to move up so they can acquire their guy.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Denver Broncos are exploring their options about potentially trading up in the first-round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

So who are they looking for? I'm sure many think/hope they're trading for Christian McCaffrey, but it's likely to make sure they get the offensive tackle they want.

There's plenty of talk about the Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants wanting to trade ahead of the Denver Broncos for offensive tackle Garett Bolles. Everyone knows the Broncos need a tackle desperately and will likely take on at 20, so they're talking with Washington, the Titans, and Buccaneers about moving ahead of the Broncos to take their choice of offensive tackle.

So the Broncos are likely exploring trade options in case one of those other teams try to jump them. I know many will hope this is for McCaffrey, but odds are they're moving up to make sure they get their top tackle, and that guy is Garett Bolles.

Benjamin Allbright of Mile High Sport's confirms that the Broncos are looking to move up for Bolles and also confirms that Seattle is as well. Both want the tackle, so whoever offers the most gets their top target.
