Saints potential trade to No. 9 with the Denver Broncos
The Denver Broncos got two quality wide receivers in last year’s NFL Draft in Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler. It is safe to say that they will probably be using this pick on a defender instead of going back to the offense again.
Looking back at the mock draft done by CBS Sports, they have the Broncos selecting a plethora of players, but the one I think will be the most likely is Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons. Like Surtain, Parsons will be the first linebacker taken off the board.
Current No. 9 projection: LB, Micah Parsons, Penn State
With the Saints’ current issues at the position (Demario Davis is really their only viable linebacker), they could use the top-ranked at the position. He would be an immediate starter on the defense giving complement to Davis.
The No. 9 pick is worth 1,350. Therefore, they could offer the Broncos similar to what they offered the Cowboys with another pick or they could offer two firsts and a second which should roughly be around the value of the No. 9 pick.
