With the NFL Draft a few days away, the Denver Broncos will be looking to build on a team that was only one win away from a Super Bowl championship. There is no doubt that this year will determine a lot about this team. It is Super Bowl or bust in 2014, and with the Broncos in win-now mode, here are five trades that the team should consider before the draft.

The Broncos are in need of an inside linebacker. As of now, Nate Irving is the starter for the team, but I believe the Broncos should find another team for him. In his three years with the Broncos, he only recorded one sack. The team has to have a player who can perform better than that, especially if they plan to draft an inside linebacker in the draft.

The Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker has been one of the bright spots for the team the past few seasons. His ability to put pressure on the quarterback and fall back in coverage makes him a player the Broncos could use in this new defense.

3. Trade Up In The Draft

With so much talent in the early part of day one, the Broncos would be foolish to miss out on any chances to draft a quality star coming out of college. Rumor has it that they could move up, which would be the best move for the future.

2. Trade Joel Dreessen

With the emergence of Julius Thomas in 2013, Dreessen has become more of an afterthought. With rumors speculating that the team could draft a TE in the draft, the Broncos should consider trading him.

I understand that he only has been in the league for a short amount of time, but his 2013 campaign was just downright dismal. Having butterfingers and changing the course of their game against the Indianapolis Colts, he found himself warming up the bench. With the team potentially drafting a running back and the possibility of a veteran addition, Hillman might be headed out the door.
