    I'd LOVE that to be true. The Broncos would trade three #1s, a #3 and a #4 all for Leinart? I think there is a very good chance he would not be equal to the haul. Broncos would be putting all of their eggs (and a very large contract) in one basket.

    I like Vince Young for that offense more. With 15 and 22 they could probably get to 8-10 (haven't looked on the charts) and that might get Young.

    From the Draft Pick Value Chart:

    1 - 3000
    2 - 2600
    3 - 2200
    4 - 1800

    8 - 1400
    9 - 1350
    10- 1300

    15 - 1050
    22 - 780

    15&22 Total Vaule = 1830

    The Broncos only have 2 1st round picks. They don't have 3.

    I believe the third #1 is Denver's 2007. Three year's #1s is a bit pricey, I really hope Shanahan feels that cost is no object.

    That would get Young, although I think the charts are WAY overrated in terms of what can or cannot be done.

    they're a rough guide, but there are other factors...for instance a team with a surplus of picks in a year may want to move up in the draft, even at the price of overpaying a bit (they can afford to with surplus picks)

    QB? Yes...but not Leinart

    They're going after Cutler. If the Jets don't want him, he might drop all the 15. At least at that position they could probably get up closer say 5-10 if he is really who they are targeting. If not Cutler, it must be Mario Williams due to the Bronc's lack of pass rush.. But hey, you don't think they are trying to nab Reggie Bush are you?

    This Denver rumor is BS. Denver is happy with Jake Plummer, who has a few decent years left in him. There's no way a team that has built so well over the past few years trades 3 1st round picks (the 2005 pick traded to Washington, this year's 1st, and the 1st from 2007 necessary to move to the top of the draft). To draft a QB when it is on the cusp of the Super Bowl. Not unless they think that Leinart is the best to come around in years, and I don't think any scouts think that.

    More likely, the Broncos are looking to upgrade at WR. Rod Smith is getting old, and the Broncos know that Santonio Holmes should be sitting there at #15. The team also released Jeb Putzier, a fine TE, before free agency began. Clearly, they're looking at Leonard Pope, who is a physical freak in the mold of Ben Watson.

    I think that Denver is actually looking at Vernon Davis for their TE position and I could see them trading up to get him.

    Okay, pete.
