For the first time since taking Pat Surtain II in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos have a first-round pick in 2024.
Thanks to trades for Russell Wilson and Sean Payton the Broncos were without first-rounders in the 2022 and 2023 NFL Drafts. Still in need of a quarterback, after Wilson didn’t work out, many experts around the league think Denver could welcome a rookie gunslinger. Others think the Broncos will address the quarterback elsewhere this offseason and focus on something else during the draft.
What will the Broncos do with pick No. 12? Could Denver even trade up or down? We will find out on April 25.
Here’s the latest from experts on what they expect the Broncos to do on NFL Draft Day
Kiper is now on the J.J. McCarthy to the Broncos train, a popular mock draft selection from various national sites across the Internet.
While plenty of mock drafts do have the Broncos taking a QB, CBS Sports football writer Chris Trapasso has head coach Sean Payton and GM George Paton going in a different direction.
NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah thinks so, as his Mock Draft version 2.0 has the Broncos selecting Florida State edge rusher Jared Verse.
Fox Sports’ Joel Klatt has spoken often about how well he believes Oregon QB Bo Nix fits Sean Payton, and his mock has Nix going to Denver.
ESPN’s Field Yates has the Broncos selecting McCarthy as the fourth quarterback off the board.
PFF has the Broncos making a daring trade up to the No. 2 spot to select the North Carolina passer.
ESPN has previously mocked Michigan national champion QB J.J. McCarthy to Denver, and on Thursday, CBS Sports did the same.
The Broncos are so desperate for a quarterback, that any mock selection that isn’t a QB at No. 12 might have folks scratching their heads.
ESPN has Denver taking Oregon QB Bo Nix at No. 12. Interestingly this mock also has J.J. McCarthy of Michigan going one pick later to the Raiders.
Kiper from ESPN had Denver taking UCLA OLB Laiatu Latu at No. 12. The Broncos got better in getting to the quarterback last year, but still they could use some more fireworks at the position.
Could the Broncos repeat their last NFL Draft pick? NFL.com has Denver going with Terrion Arnold from Alabama at No. 12. It would certainly be a solution to the question of No. 2 corner, which has been asked since PS2 came to town.
This ESPN mock had Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy going to the Broncos at No. 12. They didn’t see Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. or Oregon’s Bo Nix as first-rounders in this mock.
