AFC West Rumors: Broncos, Chargers, Raiders


  • Matt Miller of B/R says there’s a “ton of smoke” that the Broncos want to trade up into the top 10 picks for a wide receiver. Miller suggests Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy as a potential fit for the Broncos should they trade up.
  • James Palmer is reporting that while Denver has met with receiver prospects CeeDee Lamb, Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs.
  • Palmer adds to keep an eye on LSU WR Justin Jefferson for the Broncos, who currently hold the No. 15 overall pick in the draft.


Chargers GM Tom Telesco said Friday that they view this year’s quarterback draft class as being “pretty strong.”

It’s pretty strong,” Telesco said, via “I think that people tend to look at only the top of the draft at these different positions, but a lot of them there’s players as you move on, in second, third and fourth rounds that I think are going to be very good players in this league … it’s a good class of quarterbacks.”

Telesco also emphasized the importance of durability. 

“Very, very high,” Telesco said. “We have a lot of information on not just the injuries the players have had, but how they’ve healed and then really trying to predict out risk maybe down the road. Big part of the whole process. No matter how good a player is, if he’s not available to you, then he doesn’t help the team.”


  • Jason La Canfora says he’s yet to speak to an NFL executive who believes there is no chance the Raiders exploring a mobile QB like Tua Tagovailoa or Jordan Love.
  • La Canfora wonders if the Raiders could opt to take a cornerback over a receiver at No. 12, given the depth at receiver in day two of the draft. 
  • According to Vic Tafur of The Athletic, the Raiders and the Bengals are just two of several teams interested in Colorado LB Davion Taylor.
