Broncos trade up to No. 102 for Bo Nix’s Oregon receiver Troy Franklin

The Broncos gave first-round quarterback Bo Nix a receiver he knows well.

Denver traded up in Round 4 to draft Oregon wide receiver Troy Franklin with the 102nd overall pick.

The trade saw the Broncos give up the 121st, 136th and 207th picks to obtain the 102nd and 235th picks from the Seahawks.

Nix and Franklin established a great connection at Oregon last year, with Franklin catching 14 touchdown passes. There are questions about Franklin’s size and his ability to handle NFL media coverage, but there’s no doubt that he and Nix have a great relationship.

Broncos head coach Sean Payton is rebuilding his offense and he hopes Nix and Franklin have as good a relationship in the NFL as they did in college.
