NFL Draft rumors: Denver Broncos interested in trading up for C.J. Mosley

With the offseason acquisitions of defensive end DeMarcus Ware and cornerback Aqib Talib, the Denver Broncos have made it pretty clear that they want to revamp their defense following the beating they received from the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48.

Obviously, in addition to the huge free agent signings, the Broncos will also look for help in the NFL Draft next month for the defensive side of the ball, and they held a visit with Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley on Tuesday, which has now led to some speculation as to whether or not the team would trade up to grab the former Crimson Tide star.

While it’s rare, NFL.com points out that it’s a very real possibility if the Broncos do fall that much in love with adding Mosley to that side of the ball as they seek a return trip to the Super Bowl.

It’s not often that a team trades from the back of the first round into the top half of it, but, if Mosley is being seriously considered, the Broncoscould be faced with just such a task to secure him.

Pairing Mosley up with Von Miller in the linebacker crew, in addition to the acquisitions of Ware and Talib, would almost certainly make the Broncos one of the best defenses in the league; but are they willing to go to those lengths to get him?
