ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos have five of the first 84 draft picks this weekend.

The bevy of picks is due in part because the Broncos traded quarterback Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears for Kyle Orton. The Broncos' selections this Saturday in the first round will include the 12th and 18th pick.

Coach Josh McDaniels has suggested the team may take a quarterback. And if so, that quarterback may end up competing with Orton and free agent Chris Simms for the starting position.
