The @Broncos have traded back 5 spots with the Giants at 76. And...And Acquired Pick 164 as well from NY#BroncosCountry #NFLDraft @KOAColorado— Brandon Krisztal (@BKDenverSports) May 1, 2021
Broncos now have the 76th overall selection and picks 152, 164, 219, 237, and 239 left to use in the remaining picks in the 2021 NFL Draft.
This is the second time the Broncos have made a draft day trading, having moved up five spots in the second round to pick up North Carolina running back Javonte Williams. They gave up a fourth rounder in that trade, but picked up a sixth rounder there and a fifth rounder in this trade. New General Manager George Paton not holding back today to both get the players he wants and the draft capital he needs later.
What do you think of this trade back by the Broncos here? Let us know in the comments section.
