Report: Cardinals have called Broncos about making NFL Draft trade

Posted at 3:36 PM, Apr 23, 2018

The Arizona Cardinals have shown interest in moving up 10 spots in the first round of NFL Draft, according to a report.

Mike Klis at 9News in Denver reports the Cardinals have called the Denver Broncos about making a trade in which the Cards would acquire the Broncos' No. 5 overall pick in the first round, which will begin Thursday at 5 p.m. Arizona time. The Cardinals currently own the No. 15 overall pick. 

"All three teams need a quarterback and they know the Broncos, with their No. 5 draft selection, may well be in a position to have the last of the Big 4 quarterbacks available," Klis wrote.

Those four quarterbacks are USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Wyoming's Josh Allen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield. The Cardinals have reportedly shown interest in all four QBs.

Klis reports the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills are the other two teams to reach out to the Broncos about the No. 5 pick. The Dolphins and Bills own the No. 11 and 12 overall picks, respectively.

Broncos general manager John Elway confirmed last week that the team is open to trading the No. 5 pick.
