However, Orton is set to enter free agency next year. He may be viewed as a stop gap option for now, with a view to drafting a long term replacement on April 25th who will take the reins in 2010. In a conversation with Charley Casserly and Charles Davis, Mike Mayock suggested Mark Sanchez was the best fit for McDaniels offense. He went further, stating the team should package their first round picks in order to move up. In a seperate segment for the NFL Network, Mayock again said the Broncos had to replace Cutler in the draft.
There is likely to be a lot of speculation between now and draft day about potential trades, which direction Denver will go and so on. If I had to give a prediction, I think the Broncos will go with Kyle Orton as their starter in 2009 and will use those two first round picks to build up their defense. As my article below suggests, a trade involving Seattle isn't impossible but at this stage it's still unlikely.
