Broncos still trying to trade Lelie

Jul 24, 2006 at 12:59 PM--


Bill Williamson of the Denver Post is reporting that the Denver Broncos are still working hard to trade receiver Ashley Lelie. They want to accomplish this before the start of training camp.

The Broncos are looking to get help at running back and tight end. Draft-pick compensation could be part of the deal. Lelie's agent, Peter Schaffer, said there are seven teams interested in Lelie. The biggest obstacle in the deal is that Lelie will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

The 49ers made a push for Lelie prior to the NFL Draft. However, they felt that the Bronco's asking price was far too high for the receiver.

Add yet another mock draft to the pile of those that have the San Francisco 49ers selecting former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones with the No. 3 overall pick over Justin Fields of Ohio State and Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Andrew Erickson of Pro Football Focus has head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch following the narrative created by Chris Simms, Adam Schefter, Daniel Jeremiah, and other national analysts. That doesn't mean Erickson sees Jones as the better prospect. The projection is just based on what is being heard around the league — not that anyone can say with any certainty what the 49ers plan to do. "Although I personally don't agree with the selection — Justin Fields would be the better option — Jones still



49ers explain why they felt the urgency to trade up, and why it was worth the cost

Oftentimes, the type of move the 49ers pulled off last week when they traded up to pick 3 in the 2021 NFL Draft takes place much closer to the start of the draft, if not after the draft actually begins. So why did the team feel it was necessary to make the move over a month in advance, and why did it think it was worth the heavy price it paid to get it done? Call it a good old-fashioned case of fear of missing out. 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan held a media session with reporters on Monday, during which they spoke about last Friday's trade that sent the 12th overall pick, a third-round pick in 2021, and two future first-round picks to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for pick 3. The timing of the trade caught the NFL world off-guard,

Jeremiah: Majority of the NFL believes 49ers trade was for Mac Jones

It sounds like the majority of the NFL believes that the San Francisco 49ers trading up last week from No. 12 to No. 3 overall was to secure the right to draft quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama, not Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Of course, maybe that's exactly what the 49ers want the league to believe. There are so many smokescreens headed into the draft that it is difficult to predict what might happen. That is part of the appeal. Still, NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah revealed what many people around the league are hearing—that head coach Kyle Shanahan and San Francisco covet Jones, who most feel might be the fifth-best quarterback in this year's draft class. "Well, I think the majority of people around the league
