    Here's my trade proposal to the Denver Broncos:

    Denver gets: #10 overall
    Houston gets: #21 overall, #86, #148

    It is my opinion that the #1 guy on Denver's radar is Adam Carriker, DE from Nebraska. It's unlikely Carriker slips past SF at #11 or St. Louis at #13. The hope is that if Rick Smith does a good enough job of selling this that we'll be able to make this deal happen.

    At #21, we can address our need for another playmaking wideout by selecting Robert Meachem, WR from Tennessee although it's possible he's off the board by now. If so, Reggie Nelson, S from Florida would be the next best thing. Nelson would be a welcome addidtion to a depleted, and somewhat lackluster DB corps. On the off chance that both are gone at #21 I would love to see Joe Staley, OT from Central Michigan be our choice. He's definitely a guy who can step in and make an impact at LT right away.
    At #86, assuming we get Meachem or Nelson at #21, I like Ryan Harris, the LT out of Notre Dame. He may not be as NFL-ready as Staley, but could pay dividends for our O-Line. If Staley is our guy at #21, I like Aaron Rouse, S from Virginia Tech at #86. He'd be the best safety available at this point in the draft and would provide instant depth at the S position, especially if we miss out on Nelson. Lastly, with pick #148 (5th round) I would take a hard look at David Ball, WR from New Hampshire. He's got all the skills to be a solid possession receiver in the league and could possibly develop into a nice #2 option at wideout.

    Thoughts?

    i like the trade down but i dont like the players that seem to be targeted. i like nelson or meriweather at that pick, but i would possibly trade to take a smaller drop by that i mean droping to green bay or a few spost past them but not much; and still try and get leon hall and a second round pick back.

    Well he's a OLT prospect for sure. Not sure he beats anyone currently on the roster opening day for the starters spot. Salaam goes down you'll see why TTP has been banging the drum for no one but Levi Brown all off season. That...you can prety much book. He will struggle and it will not be pretty if he has to start out of need in '07.

    Don't like it. We don't get nearly enough in return value-wise.

    I like Meachem, but not more than Reggie Nelson, Revis/Houston, and Kalil.

    Subtract the 5th round pick and get a 2nd rounder for '08 and I'd take it.

    We should trade down to the second round with the Bucs and pick up an extra third and Jake Plummer.

    I like the trade. Not as much as I would like dealing down with Green Bayr (or even Buffalo). That is why I suggested it a couple of days ago :this:

    I even like it enough if we only get the 2nd rounder. I would hope that we could get their 4th also - or even swap our 4th for one of their 3rds.


    I would be happy if any of my top 18 slid:

    1. Joe Thomas - he will be gone - simply because we need a stud OT
    2. CJ - he will be gone - don't really need him but he and AJ would be scary
    3. Peterson - he is probably gone - a better dickerson
    4.& 5: Russell/Quinn likely gone
    6. Gaines Adams- gone - a stud DE would hopefully round out our DL.
    7. JAnderson - See Adams
    8. Okoye - DT - would force us to make Weaver more DE than DT so I would rather have the DE - but our run D would be stout.
    9. Branch - see Okoye
    10. Chris Houston - CB - I think he could be the Dunta of this draft.
    11/12 Nelson/Landry - whichever looks like a better fit
    13. Levi Brown OT
    14. Willis - A stud OLB would really help our DL.
    15. Lynch - Not my favorite but would solidify RB for new qb.
    16.& 17. Revis/Hall - just because we reallllly need another good cb.
    18. Carriker - DE

    Otherwise:
    WR - Ginn, Bowe or Meachum
    DE - Charles Johnson
    OLB -Posluzny
    S - Griffin or Meriweather
    CB - Ross
    OT - Staley
    C - Kalil

    Perfect value would be if we could get a 4th this year instead of a 5th, but Denver doesn't have a 4th rounder this year. I put the 5th in this year instead of a 2 or 3 next season because I think David Ball will surprise a lot of people this season if given an opportunity to work himself into a lineup. This guy makes all the big catches, and he gives you a sure set of hands at the #3 WR spot. Kubiak is seriously considering giving Walter a chance to compete for the #2 spot in TC. He sees him as a shorter version of Ed McCaffrey. AJ, Walter, Ball, Mathis...sounds decent to me.

    I like David Ball too, but I'd still rather have a 2nd rounder next year. 2008's draft class is going to be deep in offensive prospects.
