Denver Broncos: 4 players who could be traded during NFL Draft
There have been plenty of rumors/speculation surrounding the Denver Broncos this offseason. One thing is for sure: They have been very busy. The team signed some free agents, including cornerbacks Kyle Fuller, and Ronald Darby, as well as defensive lineman Shamar Stephen.
Gone are running back Phillip Lindsay (replaced at the position by Mike Boone—formerly of the Minnesota Vikings).
They also re-signed safety Kareem Jackson and gave their other star safety, Justin Simmons, a record-breaking contract extension, making him the highest-paid safety in NFL history.
Now comes the 2021 NFL Draft. The Broncos currently have the ninth overall pick, the first of nine total selections.
There are some players that are currently on the roster that hypothetically could get traded during the draft, depending on whether or not the team feels like they can find their replacement among the draftees or any late free agent signings.
The roster is currently quite young, with just five players at the age of 30 or older. Could they look at acquiring some players via trades that are more experienced than what they have? It’s certainly a possibility.
There are going to be certain scenarios that dictate whether or not a player will be on the move. If those moves don’t play out, I am sure that the Broncos will stick with what they have, in addition to what they can do in the Draft.
With that being said, here are four players that very well could be on different teams when the 2021 NFL Draft comes to a conclusion.
