The Denver Broncos attacked their biggest weakness, the quarterback position, and now set out to fill depth on the rest of their roster. By acquiring Russell Wilson, Denver is now an instant playoff contender in the AFC.
The Broncos currently have eight draft picks. Despite dealing the 9th overall pick for Wilson, Denver still has three shots in the Top 100.
I used the Mock Draft simulator from NFL Mock Draft Database. For this simulation, I used the consensus big board accumulated by NFL MDD, with the realistic draft mode setting.
Let’s see how it plays out.
DENVER BRONCOS: 7-ROUND MOCK DRAFT
2-64: Channing Tindall, LB, Georgia
Tindall has a tremendous sideline-to-sideline burst. He attacks downhill. Just like nearly every Georgia player, he is also an athletic freak. Denver doesn’t have many needs on defense but Tindall can fill one of them.
3-75: James Cook, RB, Georgia
Will they re-sign Melvin Gordon? If not, Denver will need another back to pair with Javonte Williams. Cook is a fast versatile back. He excels in catching the football. Cook can even line up in the slot if need be.
3-96: Charlie Kolar, TE, Iowa State
Kolar has consistently been one of the best tight ends in the country over the last few seasons. He kind of fell out of favor some this year but it all came roaring back after his pro day. Kolar tested far beyond what anyone thought and rose back into the day two conversation.
THE REST OF THE DRAFT
4-115: DeAngelo Malone, EDGE, Western Kentucky
4-116: Thayer Munford, G, Ohio State
5-145: Joshua Williams, CB, Fayetteville State
6-206: Marquan McCall, DL, Kentucky
7-232: Jack Sanborn, LB, Wisconsin
