Denver Broncos 7 possible moves to watch for at 2022 NFL trade deadline
7. OT Andre Dillard and 2025 7th to Broncos for 2025 6th-round pick
One of the most common things I get on Twitter in response to any trade ideas is that the Broncos don’t have any draft picks to trade, so why would they make any deals involving players coming back to Denver with picks going elsewhere? The answer is rather simple — teams have been more and more willing to deal picks well into the future that are basically inconsequential.
The Broncos lost starting left tackle Garett Bolles to a season-ending leg injury a few weeks back. They more recently lost his replacement — Cam Fleming — to an injury with the timeline of his absence unknown at this point. If Fleming is going to miss time, could the Broncos take a flyer on a player like Andre Dillard?
Dillard is a former first-round pick who has simply not lived up to his billing in the slightest with the Philadelphia Eagles. In the final year of his rookie contract, Dillard needs to get a shot somewhere this season so he has any semblance of value in free agency this coming offseason. Could the Broncos be that team?
Dillard was known coming out of Washington State for his ability to pass protect as well as his tremendous athleticism. Perhaps he could be a good fit in this offense, but really the primary reason to trade for him here is the risk-reward proposition of potentially finding something in a talented player.
Broncos reportedly have a trade package offer on table for Bradley Chubb
The Denver Broncos may already have a trade package on the table for pass rusher Bradley Chubb, according to one report. Who could be involved?
Unfortunately, it hasn’t really been George Paton’s style to take on reclamation projects, but perhaps a player like Andre Dillard could cause him to reconsider.
