    Default CBS Sports 7-round mock with trades

    Round Overall Player Notes
    1 10 QB Drew Lock, Missouri
    2 35 G/C Dalton Risner, Kansas State from OAK*
    2 41 to Oakland
    3 71 CB Isaiah Johnson, Houston
    4 125 to Oakland from HOU
    5 148 TE Drew Sample, Washington
    5 156 to Carolina from MIN
    5 170 OLB Justin Hollins, Oregon from CLE*
    6 182 to Cleveland
    6 187 ILB Joe Giles-Harris, Duke from CAR*
    7 235 to Cleveland from OAK*
    7 237 OLB Gerri Green, Mississippi State from HOU
    NT Vernon Butler (from Carolina)
    Will John Elway and his staff do this much trading? Probably not, but let's have some fun. One selection that doesn't require a trade up is Lock, giving Elway his new franchise quarterback to develop behind Joe Flacco for a year before taking over in 2020. If Washington moves up for Dwayne Haskins, as they do in this mock, the Broncos should feel confident they can sit at No. 10 and get their guy.




    After Risner makes it out of the first round, the Broncos waste no time going up to get him, swapping their fourth-rounder for a seventh in order to leap six spots to get the versatile offensive lineman. He'll be an immediate starter on the interior but could also be a starting-caliber tackle if needed down the line. With their other Day 2 pick, the Broncos nab what could be a steal in Johnson, who could quickly turn into a starter at corner with the right development.


    With this draft class being deep at tight end, the Broncos should feel confident they can find a quality option to add to their depth chart at the position. Here that guy is Sample, who is an excellent blocker and also a bit underrated as a receiver. After trading back about a round on Day 3 to land a nose tackle from Carolina in Butler, the Broncos can't wait once Hollins gets in range, sacrificing a seventh-rounder to move up for the edge rusher. Despite the move back with Carolina, the Broncos are still able to land an interesting inside linebacker prospect in Round 6, with Giles-Harris bringing physicality to the position as he competes to replace Brandon Marshall. Green is another developmental edge rusher as the Broncos double-dip at the position with their depth lacking behind their two stars.

    There is always a first for everything, so maybe Elway will do that much trading, but sure doesn't seem likely.

    It's really only three trades. They moved up in the second to get Risner which is a good move. They got Butler for swapping a 5th for a 6th and then gave up a 6th and a 7th to get Hollins in the 5th. Some teams wait for players to come to them on the third day. Others trade up to get the ones they've targeted.

    I love the Risner trade and trading up is probably needed to land him.

    Edit, just saw the Vernon Butler trade, love it too.

    Just out of curiosity, with all the trades we are making in this draft...what are we giving up for a former first round pick in Butler? And why would Carolina dump him?

    If we walk out with Lock and Risner, I'd be content.
