Scheffler Traded to Lions

Posted Apr 20, 2010

On Tuesday, the Broncos officially announced a three-way trade that sent tight end Tony Scheffler and a seventh-round pick to Detroit. A fifth-round pick from the Philadelphia Eagles was sent Denver's way.

Trade


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos on Tuesday officially announced a three-way trade involving the Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions.

Denver sent tight end Tony Scheffler and its seventh-round selection (220th overall) to Detroit, while the Lions sent linebacker Ernie Sims to Philadelphia. The Eagles sent the sixth pick in the fifth round (137th overall) to the Broncos.

After the trade, the team still has seven selections in this week's NFL Draft -- a first-round pick, two second-round picks, a third, a fourth, a fifth and a sixth. None come later than the 16th selection in each round.

For that reason, the Broncos rank second in the league in average pick -- 87.57 -- and they are tied for third in the NFL with six picks in the top 140 selections.

With three picks in the top 45 selections, Denver is one of only two teams in the league -- along with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- with so much firepower early in the first two rounds. They are one of just six clubs to have four picks in the top 80 selections in this year's draft.

Scheffler played in 15 games last season, totaling 31 receptions for 416 yards and two touchdowns.
