    It would also make teams picking later be more inclined to trade up without the fear of the pricetag and teams like us who have a ton of needs and are looking to get more picks will have more potential dance partners

      Depending on how the first round goes (we need either Darues, Peterson or Miller), the 2a pick may be the most important pick for us. I am assuming we are getting a stud at #2, and really hoping we can get the BPA (a player who slid or was graded high second, but shouldn't have - examples are Laurinatis in 2009, DeSean in 2008, just look at 2007 early second round - Posluszny, Kolb, Weddle, Zach Miller,Sidney Rice, Woodley, Harris). I know there are many 2nd round busts as well - but I would take any one of those LB who slid or were graded as 2nd rounders. And we need a LB - maybe we add Martez to this list in a couple years.

        The rookie scale has already been agreed upon in principal by both sides and WILL be in the new cba and every team already knows this which makes the possibility of trading down skyrocket. There does not have to be a cba in place by draft day because players won't be signed until there is a new cba and like I said they already know the rookie scale will be in it
        Everything agreed on was thrown out the window. Its why they went to court. The NFL and players are in a new negotiation process. Things can be change now even if they were agreed upon before.

        Part of my problem is without the CBA we currently can not touch free agent talent, which also affects draft decisions.

        But I dont expect the front office to sign 50 year old defensive linemen like McD did.

          Basically it would make higher picks more desirable for everyone.

          Neither of you are ever going to win this argument; there's no one way the wage scale influences it.

          Sure a team could want to trade up because they don't have to pay large amounts, but a team could also want to stay put at their high spot.

            We are a 4-12 team and need help at a lot of positions. If Denver can get a second round compensation for trading down then they should do so by all means. Denver picked a bad year to suck. This draft does not have any top tier palyers, heck it doesn't even have a clear cut number 1 pick. At that to no CBA in place and Denver needs all of the high picks it can get. If they can't trade back then take Dareus if he's there.
