< Trade #18.29: NYJ & MIN NYJ & MIN: Trade #18.31 >

Dictator’s Decree: “Not a bad strategy by the Broncos, swapping one 5th for two 6ths, a place in the draft where teams are just guessing anyways. But both teams whiffed in the execution phase as none of the three players drafted did anything as rookies.” – March 2019


Late round trades like this one rarely prove to be difference makers. After one season this definitely holds true for this transaction. Most players who are still available after No. 150 are still there for a reason. They aren’t expected to make an impact in Year 1. Often for late round picks a “successful” rookie season is simply making the roster and contributing on special teams, and none of the three players drafted were cut. So far, so good? But the Broncos doubled their pleasure by walking away with two late-round fliers and only time will tell how these players develop.

Trade #18.30 – Assets Exchanged
Rams receive: No. 160 (5th Rd.)
Broncos receive: No. 183 (6th Rd.), No. 217 (6th Rd.)

2018 Year-End Summary
After one season, nothing to see here. Your dictator has more important things to do in running an island than dwelling on this transaction that needs time to ferment.
