Denver Broncos mock draft: Trade down scenario
As we discussed on the previous page, here is the projected possible trade down for the Broncos. It’s a typical three-for-one deal that the Broncos have pulled off in the past when moving up that far in the draft, but it’s not something teams do a ton unless someone important falls to their selection.
Getting the 20th overall pick would give Cleveland three picks in the top 20, and three high impact players for the future of their franchise, likely starting with Myles Garrett at the top.
For the Broncos, this allows a ton of flexibility, and only increases their pick count to 11 for this year. Adding the 65th overall selection gives them the ammunition needed to move back into the later portion of the first round and get that coveted fifth round option on their top draft pick.
Or, it would simply allow John Elway to move up in the second round for another player he really likes, and still have a pick at the top of the third round. For now, we’ll just stay put and see what players we come up with through the first four rounds with these new selections…
