NFL DRAFT 2024

Denver Broncos 2024 NFL mock draft tracker

Feb 5, 2024, 4:59 PM | Updated: Feb 23, 2024, 2:08 pm

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
