Report: Broncos and Bills trade could be heating up

The Denver Broncos trading back from the fifth spot with the Buffalo Bills is starting to look more and more likely.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, the Broncos 5th overall pick is beginning to look like a spot where the Bills may be able to move up for their quarterback.

Per Breer, the Browns are asking for too much and the Colts are hesitant about moving too far back. This leaves the Broncos as the more likely trade partner for the quarterback-desperate Buffalo Bills.

2. A place where Buffalo could trade to get its quarterback could be Denver’s No. 5 pick. Word is that Browns GM John Dorsey is asking for a lot for the fourth pick, and Indianapolis may be reluctant to drop too far down.

This is a trade that has been rumored for weeks but appears to be picking up steam as we are only hours away from the beginning of the first-round draft.

NFL Network’s Peter Schrager said on air that the Broncos are “asking for a lot” for the 5th overall pick, so we could see a large return from the Bills who have plenty of picks to send in any trade.

Now, of course, this all depends on which prospects are available at 5. The Broncos like both quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold and pass rusher Bradley Chubb. If one of them fall to 5 which appears unlikely at this point, they may go in that direction. However, if the offer is too good to pass up, they still make the trade.

With the way this draft is going, we have no clue who is going where, but I have my doubts that either of the three will be there at 5.

We are nearly one hour away from finding out how this entire draft shakes out.
