I am really hoping this trade happens, mainly because it would be a huge risk for the Broncos and very UN-patriot like for their new coach. They would give up both their picks to take a QB, yes with a huge upside, but who only had 1 decent-good year at USC...a team with a LOT of playmakers. So at best he's a 50:50 shot at being a DECENT nfl qb. And maybe only a 5% overall chance of being as good a stud as Cutler and that will take at least 2-3 years to happen. Trading away 2 1st round picks would mean they risk everything on Sanchez without addressing their dire defensive woes in the 1st round.
So at BEST the donks will have a good offense but not as good as last year (Cutler vs. Orton/Simms/Sanchez?) and a defense that would have a bunch of washed up vets and lower round draft picks. The donks overall seem to be on the decline for the next few years.
As far as the Chiefs benefiting from this trade...its a no doubter. I know we'd be giving up our chance at Curry/Orakpo...but think of all the guys that should be there for us at #12, and then at #18 too. We could have the choice of DL's Maybin/T. Jackson/Ayers, LB's Maualuga/Cushing, OT Oher....and then the prospect of those guys who may DROP to #12 like Raji, Maclin, A. Smith, E. Brown. And what about a RB if the Larry Johnson situtation turns sour? One of the 2 studs Moreno/Wells would probably be available at #18...or someone that wants one of them can trade.
Bottom line is...I expect Pioli will shop this #3 pick...A LOT. Even if the trade is not with the Broncos, I assume he hasn't forgotten the Patriot way of trading down to get more solid players than guys with a chance of being stars.
