The Denver Broncos have the 25th pick in the draft tonight, but they wouldn't mind getting rid of it to move down and pick up an extra pick if they can.

John Elway told the Denver Post that such a move would be a preference in the draft if possible.

"Preferably, we'd like to go back," said Elway, the Broncos VP of football operations.

The reasoning is that the Broncos draft board probably has players 25 through 40 with very similar rankings, so the difference in the player taken could be negligible. Of course, a lot of teams' draft boards may be like that, making a trade tougher to do.
