The Denver Broncos are orchestrating a trade for head coach Sean Payton, which involves the No. 30 overall selection, originally held by San Francisco. In today’s thought exercise, we explore what New Orleans could do with that pick acquired from the Broncos. 

At the top of the draft, there is some action due to the availability of quarterbacks. Prior to the 2016 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles traded up to No. 8 overall from No. 13 overall, and then again to No. 2 overall for the right to select North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz. An alternative trade scenario is also explored, in addition to the impact of Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson sliding down the board. 

The draft order below is now the official order based on team records and tiebreakers. There is not a No. 21 overall pick here, as that’s the pick the Dolphins forfeited due to tampering violations. 

Without further ado, let’s kick this off!
