Teams are jockeying for position behind the scenes ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft. For the Denver Broncos, will that mean missing out on Devin Bush?
The 2019 NFL Draft is almost here. With only hours remaining, trade talks and posturing behind the scenes are heating up. The Denver Broncos could be an interesting pivot point in the first round.
The 10th overall selection is considered the ‘floor’ for Michigan linebacker Devin Bush by some. Bush would be a fine pick for the Broncos with the 10th overall pick but Denver is not the only team interested in taking the speedy All-American.
According to multiple reports coming out Thursday morning and afternoon, teams could be jockeying for position to select Bush in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
There are a couple of examples of teams trying to jump up and get Bush.
The Falcons pick 14th in the first round, and the Detroit Lions at 8 overall are said to be interested in moving down, as are the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills.
The Steelers have the 20th overall pick.
There have been some rumors about Bush being ranked as high or higher on some boards as LSU linebacker Devin White, who is expected to last no longer than fifth overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
It would be wild to see two players who are not on the same level as Roquan Smith get drafted as high or higher than Smith was picked (8th overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Bush is certainly a prospect of interest for the Broncos. Now that their board has been finalized, it makes some sense that some of this information is getting out there. Pretty much anyone and everyone reporting close to the Broncos feel like Bush is a top two option for them, if not the favorite.
They could be right.
Then again if this information is out there with NFL reporters, certainly other teams know about it and they can make plans to move up for Bush accordingly if they so choose.
