Report: Broncos have discussed “moving up” in draft


The team slated to select next-to-last in every round of the 2014 NFL Draft is reportedly considering what it would take to move up the board.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Broncos are “talking about” trading up.

The Broncos have the No. 31 overall pick. They also have all of their picks in Rounds Two through Seven (Nos. 63, 95, 131, 171, 207, 246).

The prospect of a Denver leap up the board is an interesting one on multiple levels, as we noted Tuesday. For starters, there is the matter of whom the Broncos could be targeting. And then there is the issue of what the Broncos would have to surrender to move into an earlier spot. Given the Broncos’ low draft slot in every round, it’s conceivable 2015 draft picks could come into play in the event Denver really wanted to make a bold move forward.

    They want to move up a few picks this year so they can move back a pick next year. Simple enough.

  2. paulnoga says: May 7, 2014 8:10 PM

    Possibly move up to the teens to get CJ Mosley, MLB, Alabama.

    Manning goes deep and it’s intercepted by malcom smith for a touchdown….
    Broncos =chokers no matter who they draft

  4. cueghost says: May 7, 2014 8:17 PM

    I’m guessing, IF they trade up, it will be in order to grab Mosley.

  5. mdaleybucsfan says: May 7, 2014 8:24 PM

    Trading as high as maybe the teens I’d say only Cj Mosley would help you enough to be worth it.

  6. naenae431 says: May 7, 2014 8:24 PM

    Move up for Mosley or Dennard

  7. rushbacker says: May 7, 2014 8:25 PM

    Cornerback makes the most sense. Or possibly middle linebacker, if they think Mosley or Shazier is a legit prospect at the position. I doubt they can get in range for Justin Gilbert without morgaging high future picks, but maybe Dennard or Kyle Fuller falls into their range, and they decide to move ahead of somebody.

    Denver is loaded and if Peyton is half as good as he was in 2013 they have a solid chance of making it back to the Superbowl, but the “all in for next season” strategy has rarely — if ever — been a successful one historically.

  9. smartstickhotness says: May 7, 2014 8:32 PM

    The broncos will not make it back to the Super Bowl with manning

    Book it

  10. somethingsmellsrotten says: May 7, 2014 8:40 PM

    Donkeys blowing smoke…just like they blow SuperBowls.

  11. bronx77 says: May 7, 2014 8:46 PM

    I’d be worried if they hadn’t thought about moving up…. Or moving back…. Or not moving……

  12. bpjensen says: May 7, 2014 8:56 PM

    I hope by this point there are 32 teams that have discussed moving up, moving back, or who they would draft if they actually did neither.

    Year-long paper champs.

  14. ebbycalvinlaloosh says: May 7, 2014 9:27 PM

    Mosley, Gilbert or Fuller, and it would be worth it for any of the three. At #31, they’ll likely end up with Joel Bitonio or Kyle Van Noy. Good prospects at positions of need, but not near the immediate impact that the others represent.

  15. kolbe213 says: May 7, 2014 9:29 PM

    When is the draft anyway?

  16. ballboy48 says: May 7, 2014 9:32 PM

    They better not give up too much of the farm. Once Manning is gone, they’ll need all the help they can get.

  17. caseyanthonymunoz says: May 7, 2014 9:33 PM

    Broncos haven’t won a SB since Capgate. Fact. Cheats.

    Johnny Football!

    If I’m the Bears I’m fielding offers for pick #14 and I might take Denvers first and second rounder for it. And maybe another draft pick next year.

  21. blackandbluedivision says: May 7, 2014 10:47 PM

    Everyone is talking about moving up in the Draft, except…the NFL Draft! This wait is excruciating.

  22. gooboy6 says: May 7, 2014 10:58 PM

    As a Chiefs fan, this is more good news. Keep mortgaging the future Elway. Broncos might beat Chiefs this year, but Chiefs are building their foundation on rock not sand. Chiefs will own Broncos 2015-2020

  23. Norseman says: May 7, 2014 11:12 PM

    It’s gonna be a lot tougher sledding for the Broncos next year playing the NFC West. All four teams in that division have a good defense- not just SF and Seattle.

    They need to upgrade now to have a chance of going deep into the playoffs again. Manning ain’t getting any younger.

    I’m guessing he hangs it up after this year.

    Better have that QBOTF lined up…

  24. elwaysagenius says: May 7, 2014 11:28 PM

    I’d imagine every team has discussed these things. That said, I like Denver’s chances of finding an impact guy like Shazier, Mosely or Verrett in the teens rather than whomever falls to 31.

  25. aldavis4president says: May 7, 2014 11:28 PM

    Just let it be Thursday already!!

  26. riverhorsey says: May 7, 2014 11:39 PM

    Watch the Broncos get Manziel. Be a perfect fit with Peyton leaving in 2 years.

  27. nodindenver says: May 7, 2014 11:54 PM

    If a reasonable situation presents itself, move up. If not, let somebody scramble for the 5th year on a Qb and move the heck back. Do not sell the house for another guy who played at a powerhouse college and is out of the league in a couple of years. I would rather have LBs like Danny T at a bargain!

  28. coloradofort says: May 8, 2014 12:26 AM

    This just in…..Every NFL Team has talked about moving up……….

  29. sourdoughsam says: May 8, 2014 1:29 AM

    Everyone’s discussed moving up. Hell, even my 6-year-old niece has had some discussions about moving up.

  30. campcouch says: May 8, 2014 1:58 AM

    ah yes,some team out there is considering helping out a loaded team with better draft positioning.

  31. bornahawker says: May 8, 2014 1:58 AM

    Elway drives this club into the ground.

  32. jaygruntboston says: May 8, 2014 3:24 AM

    Their Big Headed overrated, overpaid, overhyped, choke artist QB should think about retiring!!!

  33. slickytfox says: May 8, 2014 5:17 AM

    Hey, if the Broncos want to trade a 1,2, and a 3 to the Burgh for the 15.. I’d do it.

    Unless it is Dennard or Gilbert at 15 for the Steelers, I wouldn’t care.

    The talk of a WR like Beckham for the Steelers makes me cringe.

    The Steelers round 1 or 2 WR’s have been prima donnas or busts. I liked Plax and Santonio at the time, but history shows they really haven’t been FRANCHISE players. Limas Sweed, on the other hand, and I was really fired up for him when they drafted him. Shows how much I know.

    Hines Ward, Antwaan Randle-El, Antonio Brown…not 1st Rd picks and had been more productive for more years than the former receivers I mentioned.

    Defense wins championships. Guys who touch the ball 8 times a game do not. Well, maybe Santonio’s clutch grab in the Super Bowl helped; it didn’t get the Steelers there, though.

    I would take that deal any day. I do want a 3rd instead of a 4th though with this slotting. Maybe swap the 4 for a 5 to even it out. It’s a way to add depth and get younger in a lot of positions.

    As with the Colts before, Manning runs this team. If they trade up it will be for an offensive player – more than likely a WR.
