The Denver Broncos traded up in the 2nd round of the 2023 NFL draft on Friday to choose Oklahoma pass receiver Marvin Mims with their very first choice in the draft.
After the Broncos were aggressive in their pursuit of Mims on draft day, other groups took notification and called Denver basic supervisor George Paton about the possible schedule of receivers Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton.
The Broncos gotten “a call or two” about the possibility of a WR trade after the Mims choice, according to a report from The MMQB’s Albert Breer. No offer was struck throughout the draft and it appears not likely that an offer will get done due to the fact that Denver has actually set a high asking rate for both Jeudy and Sutton.
“At this point, it’d cost a lot in 2024 picks to get Jeudy or Sutton,” Breer tweeted on Friday. “And teams are being stingy with ’24 picks.”
The Broncos have actually stated numerous times in current weeks that they do not prepare to trade Jeudy or Sutton, and Denver has actually decreased chances to do so.
It’s worth keeping in mind that Mims is a quick deep risk, which would make him more of a danger to KJ Hamler for snaps than Jeudy or Sutton. It’s likewise worth keeping in mind that Sutton’s and Tim Patrick’s agreements will have very little “dead money” cap strikes starting in 2024, and groups are constantly preparing ahead.
The Broncos do not seem thinking about trading a receiver at the minute, however the Mims choice will provide some versatility moving forward.
