2012 NFL Draft: Broncos Discuss Trading Up To No. 7 Pick With Jaguars, According To Report

The Denver Broncos have discussed making a trade with a Jacksonville Jaguars to move up to the No. 7 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, according to Shawn Zobel of Draftheadquarters.com. Denver would then use that pick to select South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore, one of the top players in the class at that position.

Rumors have come out recently saying that the Jaguars are interesting in trading down in order to accumulate more draft picks, and the Broncos may be interested in gathering up difference-makers for a short championship run with Peyton Manning at quarterback.

At the moment, the Broncos are selecting No. 25, so they'd need to add some significant pieces to the package in order to move up 18 spots. Gilmore is generally considered the second-best cornerback in the draft behind LSU's Morris Claiborne, but his stock has been rising and the Broncos have been looking at defensive players with their current pick.
