You thought Belichick was wild? He’s got nothing on his protégé in the Mile High City.
On Thursday morning, the Broncos had the No. 11 selection.
By the time the day ended, they gained a first-rounder and two thirds, only giving up a second-rounder and a fourth to do it.
If you need a recap, here’s what happened:
Denver traded No. 11 to San Francisco for No. 13 and No. 113. Minutes later, they sent that No. 13 to Philly for No. 24 and a pair of thirds (Nos. 70 and 82).
Later, they traded back up from No. 24 to No. 22, sending New England the latter pick and the earlier-acquired No. 114.
They were well ahead of the game at that point, picking up a very good (and much-needed) player in WR Demaryius Thomas and two later picks.
But the madness continued not 15 minutes later, as they sent their second-rounder (No. 43) and original fourth (No. 114) to Baltimore for No. 25—and promptly selected Tim Tebow.
The Broncos front office probably slept like babies after all that activity, which might explain why they were so quiet on Friday.
Honorable mention here goes to Andy Reid, whose Day 2 maneuvering picked up about a jillion selections on Day 3.
