According to Adam Caplan and Tony Pauline of Scout.com, the Broncos are talking with the Texans about a trade that would result in the Broncos moving up to No. 10 and Texans moving down to No. 21. This is significant to San Francisco because the Broncos appear to be interested in linebacker Patrick Willis or defensive end Adam Carriker. Defensive tackle Amobi Okoye also appears to be on their radar.
Willis and Carriker are believed to be the top two 49ers targets this weekend.
Lance Zierlein of the Houston Chronicle also seems to have heard the same thing. The following is from his blog today.
I heard from three different sources on Tuesday night and the biggest info potentially involves our boys (referring to the Texans). I'm hearing that the Broncos are going to try and make a move up the draft board and are looking to land somewhere ahead of San Francisco. Why? Because the Broncos are worried that the Niners will target the guy they want to get their hands on .... Ole Miss LB Patrick Willis.
