    Broncos have been trying to trade into the top 5

    Denver have been trying to trade up into the top 5 of the draft, offering their two first rounders in exchange. As of right now, the Titans and Packers have refused, as has another team in the top 5.

    Any ideas on who they are moving up to try and get? I thought Vernon Davis at first, but trying to move up to #3 suggests a QB

    They only have one first round pick left after trading down with the *****. Wonder if they're offering next year's first rounder along with the 15th pick.

    They probably traded off the second pick after they realized they couldn't use it to trade up.

    Yeah come to think of it this seems to have been before they traded with the niners.

    Re: Broncos have been trying to trade into the top 5

    At third overall, I think they'd be looking at Mario Williams or Vernon Davis. But trading up to that spot pre-draft could be them trying to ensure themselves a top QB also. Hard to tell.

    Re: Broncos have been trying to trade into the top 5

    Davis could be their new Shannon Sharpe, and if they were to also grab a QB on the first day Davis would defintely be a good go to guy for him. That said, Broncos have been looking to improve in the redzone for ages
