    Obviously, the Jets already have an idea of what will happen and which QB they will get at #3. Just like the Eagles already knew the Rams were taking Goff when they made the trade to #2 for Wentz. The Jets either know the Giants will stay there and won't take a QB or they are prepared to get the 3rd QB if necessary, which does not mean he will be the #3 QB on their board. The Jets might have Mayfield or Allen as the QB1.
    I still don't think moving that far up was worth it for a guy who may not be the #1 on their board. With the eagles, there was at least the assurance of knowing they would have one of the two top QB prospects. But with a team as depleted of talent as the Jets are, they needed those round two picks like fish need water. Other questionable decisions have arisen as well. They just signed McCown and Bridgewater to one year deals, and now are giving up all these day two picks to get a QB? To me this comes off as a desperation move because their front office is on its last legs.

    If Buffalo trades with Denver it will be because they simply want a top 5 pick QB without a particular one in mind. At pick 5, anyone who wants a QB will have to be satisfied with Lamar Jackson or the 4th best QB. This is why the Jets trade for the 3rd pick was not very well done at all. If the Giants feel the need to pick a QB or trade out with anyone interested, then the Jets are forced to take the 3rd best QB which may or may not be the guy they really wanted.

    It will be complicated to find a trade partner after the trade between the Colts and the Jets. Before that trade, the Broncos were an ideal trading partner because we were ahead of the Jets.

    At this point, why would a team give a king's ransom to the Broncos? Picks #6 to #10 have all the 5 teams with their QBs set: Colts, Bucs, Bears, 49ers, Raiders.

    After those teams, we finally have the Dolphins with a reported interest in Mayfield. Then we have the Bills at #12 and Cardinals at #15 looking for a QB. If those 2 teams, maybe 3 because of the Dolphins, are battling for a QB, they will have to guess how high they must go to beat the others.

    Ideally, they would probably like to have the #2 pick to get ahead of the Jets, but the price may be too much. If they believe getting the #7 or #8 pick will be enough, then making the trade becomes difficult for the Broncos because it will be cheaper to trade with the Bucs or Bears.

    The Bears are probably crazy to trade down after giving all those picks to move up for Trubisky.

    Trading back with the Bills would be great and a no brainer but it obviously depends on whether they would want to or not. I think the Bills will trade into the top 5 for a QB but if they can jump to 2 or 4 then they won't need our pick.

    I would be happy trading down 5-7 places with a team for their 2nd, this would still give us plenty of options and in an ideal world we would come away with McGlinchey

    I like Quinton Nelson and I like him at #5. However, Denver has 67 players currently under contract including eleven O-Linemen. They need at least fifteen for TC. A third team O-Line is already on the roster. I think they need at least two starting O-Linemen from the draft, and in order to get those they need to be selected no later than the second round.

    IMO Denver should trade back with Buffalo. That would probably give Denver #12, #22, #53 or #56 and probably #96 and maybe a pick next year. The three extra picks would be in the top 100 giving Denver two picks in the first round, two in the second round and three in the third round for a total of thirteen (plus two in the 4th, three in the 5th and one 6th) The extra picks could be used at that spot, traded for players, to trade up or trade for picks next year)

    This would enable the Broncos to address not only the O-Line, but almost all other positions on both sides of the ball as well. Even if all thirteen picks were used this year, that would bring the roster to eighty. The other ten would be trades, free agents or UDFAs (e.g., a Punter) Denver's roster already has plenty of UDFAs most of whom have at least a year of NFL experience, so the Draft could be used to raise the talent level of the TC roster. Competition brings out the best and separates the wheat from the chaff.

    With seven picks in the top 100 plus #s 106 and 109, the Broncos could conceivably get Mike McGlinchey, Will Hernandez, Terrell Crosby and/or Wyatt Teller plus players at other positions like Equanimeous St. Brown, Rashaad Penny, Kyle Lauletta, B.J. Hill, Shaquem Griffin, Fred Warner, Anthony Averett, Jessie Bates III or Dane Cruikshank. If more picks in the top 100 are desired the three fifth round picks (#142, #160 and #163) and the sixth (#182) could be used to trade back up.

    Some are frustrated by Denver not signing more free agents. The cheapest way to infuse more talent is through the Draft, and the best way to do that is through as many picks in the top 100 as possible. Players with high draft grades always slide down if, for no other reason than a run on players at a certain position. They are there, but often an interested team can't pull the trigger because it's not their turn to pick. Normally, a team has three picks in the first three rounds. If Denver can trade back with Buffalo, they have the opportunity to have more than twice that number.

    Just a thought. :2cents:
    I would be 100% ok with that draft

    Watch one of his highlight vids on youtube. They used him as a pulling guard quite a bit so i dont see a problem there or with strength. Dude just mauls people

    Id have to disagree with you on the guard part. I dont feel like leary and conner have it covered. Leary is but id rather have nelson start and conner be the backup for g/c. Watching nelsons athletic ability, id have no problem trying him at tackle either.
    Can never have enough depth.
