NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport began the network’s draft coverage announcing that the Denver Broncos were in talks with the New York Giants for the number two overall pick. The Giants ended up selecting Saquon Barkley with the pick.
John Elway denied the trade discussion after the draft, but we’ll discuss what most likely happened.
Prior to the draft, there was also a rumor that the Broncos were in discussion to trade a second-round pick to the San Francisco 49ers for right tackle Trent Brown (who Von Miller called the best right tackle in the NFL last season). Brown is now a member of the New England Patriots... We’ll discuss further the curse of Vance Joseph.
However, it is the second day of the NFL Draft and the prospects are a plenty. There are so many starters still available at positions of need that it seems as if Denver will have a difficult time making a wrong decision.
