My 2018 Denver Broncos draft board


Prospect School Position Scouting Projected Broncos Projection Broncos
Josh Rosen UCLA QB Poised and confident taking snap under center. Strong but not unbelievable arm, very good accuracy for collegiate level. 1st – Top 10 If the Broncos like his caractr and are willing to trade to the top pick to select him, I embrace the mortgage. He does look like a top 10 NFL QB in his confidence and in his poise in the pocket. You cannit ask for a better look at the college level. 1st – top 2
Saquon Barkley
Penn State RB Incredible talent. Best player in the draft, comparable only to Andrew Luck for hwat he could provide spot on in the NFL. Explosive, good vision, great second gear, powerful but also intelligent runner. Good pass catcher out of the backfield. Could and most probably will get better at blocking. 1st – Top 10 I wont criticize the Broncos if they trade up to whatever position and giving future 1st draft picks to select him. One in a generation type of talent. 1st – Top 3
Vita Vea Washington DL1T Exlosive at the snap and powerful at the cintact with Olinemen. Has some initial burnst but then his massive size take over and slow him down a bit. Great and powerful pursuer, able to keep his mind on the play even running after the RB also 10 yards behind him. Anchor well and is very hard to move him, could bring some pressure in the passing game from a DE position also. Incredible player. 1st Underrated. He has top 10 talent. If the Broncos take him at 5th overall wont be a sexy pick but has definetly potential to make the difence really stout for years to come. Special player. 1st – Top 5
Baker Mayfield Oklahoma QB Comfortable in the pocket, does not have the strongest arm and the most perfect spiral. Very confident and competitive. Overthrows at times, kind of player that has a tons of energy and shows it all. Very mobvel and fast with the ball as a runner. Lacks ideal size for a quoterback but shows a lot of determination. Able to pick his team on his shoulder, can make a good variety of throws and is able to read defenses and extend plays. 1st Is not the prototypical QB prospect as Rosen is but in an effective scheme he could be dangerous in his rookie year. Ready to start, under the right scheme, a competitor with increbible success in college ranks. I won’t be shoked if the Broncos takes him at 5 overall or rade up for him. He could be the future of the organization. 1st – top 5
Bradley Chubb NC State OLB Quick and athletic, very smooth and aggressive pass rusher that is able to keep a low body balance and either wind past Ots or use his quickness and agility to pass them from the inside. 1st – Top 10 Great motor and great power. Very good explosion at the snap and nose also for the ball in the running game. Top 10 pick, he’s a bit more suited for 4-3 DE than 3-4 OLB  but he has the quickness at the smap that would make him a dangerous pass rusher from the OLB position too. 1st – Top 10
Sam Darnold USC QB He’s big for a pass first QB. Can run and scramble althought his accuracy lowers considerably when throwing out of the pocket. He’s a great QB in the making that might need one year of learning behind a more consumed QB that would look as placeholder. Can make most of trows still does not have a super arms and some of his ball does not have the best spiral I ever seen. Can make plays out of nothing but also can make very costly mistakes. Game management is still a work in progress. 1st – Top 10 He looks to have all the tools and intangibles to work and become one of the better QBs of the NFL. If he can sit one year, and learn from an experienced QB without being throw out and have to save the world form minute one. If he’ll have to play right away, to be succesful will need a playcaller that really will stretch his strengths and won’t ask him to play as a top 10 pick. 1st – top 10
Harold Landry
Boston College OLB Lacks ideal height for NFL but still a good size. Has exceptional speed and quickness at the snap. Very dangerouns in speed rush especially against RTs. Pass rusher specialist at college level, very dangerous, explosive and quick, very athletic. Can run in coverage and looks quite stout against the run too. 1st I would not criticize the Broncos to select him with the 5th overall pick. Perfect fit at OLB opposite to Von Miller, looks a bit underrated against the run but very stout and with good instincts. 1st – top 10
Josh Allen
Wyoming QB Very good pocket presence. Took snap on the shotgun but also under center. Has huge armstrength and can reach any corner of the field. Has ability to fool defenders looking elsewhere before a quick delivery of the ball. Has some issue with accuracy and at times when prerssuyred delivers the ball with less touch than needed and more strength than required not helping the receiver making the catch. Can run with the ball, has some quickness and acceleration and fearful of contact. 1st – Top 10 Big and powerful, has a great arm abd good pockect presence. His accuracy is an issue but he looks to have intengibles to learn, under strong coaching, how to limitate this issue. Still I think Rosen is way batter prospect and Darnold have uncapped potential and less limitating issues. 3rd QB on my board by size/natural talents. 1st – Top 10
Quenton Nelson Notre Dame OG Great size for an interior lineman. Looks strong and stout, very smooth in pass protecting maintaing a very good balance and with great awareness. Quick and fast to run laterally to his outside assignment. 1st – Top 10 It might be true that in the top 10 it is not worthy to take an OG because much less impactful of other positions (QB, LT, edge rusher, CB) but he really looks like a plug in and play guy thta might turn out to be a pro bwler quite soon in his career once he figure out the speed of the NFL. Athletically he has all the tools to become one of the best OG in the game plus he has tremendous awareness for collegiate level. Still I’d like the Broncos to trade down maybe a couple of slots to let teams to grab pass rushers and safeties, but I can understand if, QBs gone and Barkley gone too, they select the best player remaining in the darft that happened to be a OG and being maybe a 1st day upgrade over incumbent starter. 1st – Top 10
Derwin James Florida State S Great size, looks bigger on the field than his actual listing. Aggressive and quick to get to the ball carrer defending north – South. Very quick, athketic and fast coverung the slot. Has size enough to cover Tes in the NFL. Very good change aof direction, athletic freak. 1st – Top 10 If the Broncos would draft him at  overall I would understand. He’s better than Fitzpatrick, smoother and more athletic. 1st – Top 10
Joshua Jackson Iowa CB Very athletic, has very good short area quickness and great speed. Has great size and looks to be always able to stay on an island with the opponent nº1 receiver. Very physical to the ball and the receiver. 1st If the Broncos trade back some spots he could be the target. Not at 5th overall but together with Ohio State Ward, he looks to me like the best CB n the draft. Pure cover corner that could play the nickel position as a rookie and bring tons of quality depth from day 1. 1st – Top 10
Mike Hughes
UCF CB Lacks ideal size. Has some legal issue that let him transfer to UCF from North Carolina. Has very good athleticism. Able to make good open field tackles. Not scared to throw his body in run support. Aggressive player that is not hesitant at the contact. As speed and short area quickness that would make him a very good cover corner in the NFL. 1st – 2nd I don’t think the Broncos will take a shot at red flag players in this year draft. Therefor he should be totally cleared by Broncos scouts before he could make the board. If he does make the board he’s a top 20 picks for the Broncos for sure. He has everything they look for in a CB, less the size. He’s aggressive and physical, he likes the run support, is fearless and has great athletic skills and quickness. he should be top 20 player for every team that has him on its board. 1st – Top 20
Minkah Fitzpatrick
Alabama S Athletic flashy and explosive. Able to be a great threat as blitzer and to consistently make plays in the backfield. Did not face many NFL ready QB so the passing coverage is a bit of a question mark. Recruited as a CB moved to S, played a lot on the line of scrimmage. Has great size. 1st – Top 10 Really heralded by the media, I did not see constant disruptive plays by him to warrante a top 5 or a top 10 pick for the Brobcos given that he’s a S and the acceptable quality of talent the Brobcos have on the roster actually. He’s not big enough to pplay hybrid S/LB, he is evaluated as hybrid CB/S maybe to take over as rookie as nickelback. He’s a solid 1st round talent but not really top 10 in this year draft. 1st
Mason Rudolph Oklahoma State QB Great size and great armstrength. Has some issue at times releasing the ball but the ball has some good spiral and comes off really fast from his hands. Has some accuracy problem at times, other times is spot on. Very accurate in deep throws so to say that maybe he is accurate but might have some issue with plays recognition. Not a runner, does  not love to scramble but does it well enough and knows how to extend plays with his legs around the pocket. 2nd A much better prospect than Brock Osweiler when he came out of of Arizona State. Has great arm strength and can make all the throws. Has soem curious release at times. Very underrated, he should be a 1st round pick by his talent alone and should be somebody the Broncos could target later in the 1st round if he passes the 25th – 26th pick overall, which is a big if for me. The Dolphins at 12th overall could be targeting him and in my opnion they’ll be spot on. 1st
Maurice Hurst
Michigan DL3T Explosive at the snap, able to beat double teams. Very aggressive and powerful for his size. Looks like a top 10, top 15 selection. 1st Looks like a great interior pass rusher that also can make his presence felt against the run. A bit short for what the Broncos like and projected to be selected just behind the Broncos spot in the first round. I have a 1st round grade because you can never have enough pass rushers, but the Broncos should trade out fro he 5th pick and get to 8th – 9th overall to make him their selection. If they keep Wolfe, I don’t see how they would select a D-Lineman so high in the draft this year. 1st
Ronald Jones II USC RB Explosive RB that can run outside Ts or inside. Has quickness and burnst and looks to have patience and vision. Can block some but will have to get much better on this area in the NFL. 1st Potental three downs RB that has vision, patience and burnst. He looks to me as a better version of Booker and since it looks like the Broncos love Booker, I don’t think they will actually trade up in the 1st round to select Jones. Still a very clear veritile and modern RB that could be used in any scheme and formation without giving any information to the opponent team. 1st
Denzel Ward Ohio State CB Quick and explosive, really smooth changing direction, looks to be a  finess player but is very aggressive and takes good tackling angles. A bit undersized. 1st Great player that could really add talent to CB depth and learn from Chris Harris Jr, whome he resemple but with better speed. He’s on the outside looking in into the top 10 draft picks because of the nuember of QB that supposedly will be taken with the top 10 spots. If he’ll slide to the end of the 1st round or at the beginning of the 2nd round, the Broncos could be really interested in his talent. 1st
Nick Chubb
Georgia RB Powerful and has some explosion. Partient runner that is able to accelerate when he sees the hole. Very quick hitting the hole, has very good vision and takes good decisions. Does showcase a 2nd gear when in open field and looks very athletic and runs very smoothly. 2nd – 3rd If Denver wants him will need to use its Initial picks of the 2nd round and trade up in the 1st. He’s vastly underrated by the media. He is a 1st round talent. Playmaker that is very fluid and balanced runner that has patience and vision. Could be a very good playmaker for the Broncos and, on my eyes, a solid improvement on Booker. 1st
Billy Price
Ohio State OG Athletic, explosive and quite powerful. Looks as complete player that plays with tenacity and aggressiveness. Will have to gain Pro Football core power but looks to me as 1st rounder interior olineman, quite solid, almost ready to go. Will have to learn to play at NFL speed but looks to be always on top of his assignment and is gifted enough to become a Pro bowler, barring any injury. 1st – 2nd Not in the top 10 selections but if he slip into de back of the first round Denver could very well trade up and select him because he could be the key component at that OG spot that is still weak. UPDATE: he injured his pectoral at the combine, this could be good news for the Broncos that depending the severity of the injury, might not have to trade up for him but insted wait for him n the second round or trade up from the third to get a late second round selection. Still 1st round grade to me for the player. 1st
D.J. Moore Maryland WR Has good enough size, looks thick and can block quite well, stout with strong arms and good body strength.  Great quickness, can accelerate very fast and runs smoothly with the ball in his hands. Runs well executed runs and is explosive at the snap. Complete WR that is also a great punt returner. 1st – 2nd Has the size of a nº2 WR in the NFL  and has the explosion and quickness to become even nº1. The Broncos will have either to trade down some spots or to rade back into the 2nd half of the 1st round to draft him. Too smooth of a receiver. 1st
Tremaine Edmunds
VA Tech ILB Great size and athleticism. Has some instincts. Does not show great power or aggression. 1st Very athletic big player that progressed his game every year in college. Will need to get thougher and be more aggressive in the NFL. I won’t be happy if the Broncos would look at him before the 25th pick but his combination size/athleticism is very rare to find. Still not a top 10 pick at all. 1st
Mike McGlinchey Notre Dame OT Great size, looks very strong. A bit slow first steps at the snap can let him be caught a bit off guard. Has to be a bit more explosive at the snap. Looks a bit clumcy at times. Very powerful in the run game, able to pull back his opponent anchorinw well on the ground. Has good enough feet and athletic skills to play OT in the NFL but better his lack of elite body balance makes him more suited to play RT. 1st I think he could become a good RT in the NFL. To me he looks to lack a bit of athleticism and overall his awareness has to get better. Better suited to be a strong player in the running game. The Broncos could see if he falls out of the first ruound and see if to take him early in the second round or maybe even trade up late in the first if he’s still there. 5th year option sounds good if he develops into a starting RT. 1st – 2nd
Kolton Miller
UCLA OT Huge man, great size and can get bigger in the NFL. Lacks elite dancing feet and athleticism but all in all looks fluid in pass protection for a guy of his size. Showe power that is not showcased and lower body strenght. Can have problem with speedy rushers and even more with experienced technician. Maybe better suited to play RT in the NFL at least at the start of his career. Might need one year to adapt to NFL speed and power if not suited in the right scheme and helped by experienced TEs- 1st – 2nd I like him as potential franchise RT and I think that if the Broncos like him they could go after him in the trading up back in the 1st round, the pick Denver holds right now in the 2nd round could be not enough for him. He lacks elite athletic skills and movement to be a surefire LT in the NFL, better make him a bit stronger and use him a RT. All in all a great pick and fix at RT immediately. 1st – 2nd
Lamar Jackson
Louisville QB Lacka a bit of size but got stronger and bigger in any offseason. Shows willingness to get better and to learn. Lacks a bit of accuracy in intermediate and long thows, the ball comes out awith less than perfect spiral at times. Questionable capability to go through complex target read. Great runner, incredible athlete, got better as a passer on every year. 1st He has the look of the great runner first and passer second QB a la Kordell Steward. His athleticism and his capability to get better every year as a QB is not to be forgotten. Under the right coaching stuff he can become a very dangerous double threat QB but he’s not a finished product as per now and his questionable accuracy could be heavily exposed. Because of his athleticism I think he could be taken by the Broncos late in the 1st round and will have to be grromed for a year or two. 1st – 2nd
Brian O’Neill
Pittsburgh OT Has great size and good athleticism. Can run in open field and is very dominant when getting his hands on a linebacker of DB, very effective though. Strong, does a good job in the running game pushiong away big Dlinemen (Bradley Chubb included). Lacks elite gfootwork but does a good job especially for his size. 2nd I think he will have to bulk a bit more, has the fram to do it and once he did he could become a dominant RT. Could start as a rookie and do a solid job, especially for the Broncos. Underrated, better and more pro ready than other more heralded propects. I think he’s exactly a great player at RT for the Broncos. 1st – 2nd
Taven Bryan Florida DE Has great size and very good quickness at the snap. Lacks elite power and explosion but has very good quickness at the snap and looks to be very stout and really hard to be moved by Olinemen. 1st He reminds me a bit of Derek Wolfe, really stout powerful, creating a lots of havoc in the backfield but that does not have the explosion at the snap that would make him a pass rusher in the NFL. Still very good player that has great size and power and could anchor the Dline for years. late round pick or early second, more or less teh same grade the Broncos gave to Wolfe. 1st – 2nd
Orlando Brown Oklahoma OT Very big player that runs very smothly for his size and is able to place block on the run. Has power mpre then strength. Has very good balance and footwork for a guy of his size and is able to be in commend of the LOS. 2nd – 3rd I do understand his combine failure as a red flag, but watching his tape he shows everything a team can want for a starting T with potential to become a very good starter. Maybe better on the rught side but surely hei has power, can move, put block on the move, reach second level of defenders and also has footwork good enough for staying with pass rushers. Denver needs RT badly and he could be a very good anwers for them late in the 1st round or in the 2nd. Somebody is gonna select him in the 2nd round, he’s not going to fall in the third. I think he has 1st round potential. 1st – 2nd
Connor Williams
Texas OT Has good size, will have to get a bit bigger, looks very athletic and moves well at the LOS and reaching his assignment at the second level of the defenders. Bend well his knees and has good enough footwork. Has some very good athleticism not overly explosive at the snap but quick enough to be on top of the defender. Lacks a bit of awareness at times and let the defender slips through him. 1st Lacks abit of nastyness and aggression for what the Broncos likes SO I think that if he’d be there at their pick early in the second round he could be in strong conversation to be the prospect they pick. 1st – 2nd
Jaire Alexander
Louisville CB Lacks ideal size for CB at the NFL level. Still very athletic and smooth running coverage. True man to man coverage prospect that is aggressive and plays phisical. Has speed and lateral movement to cover any CB duty on the NFL field. 1st Great CB prospect which unique knock is injuries on a knee. Durability concerns could make him slide (no prob if the Broncos would chose him at 10th – 12th ovearll by talent alone) and may be there at the beginning of the 2nd round. In that case, depending on medical check-up, if cleared he could be a steal for the Broncos that could find a starting man to man CB for the future. 1st – 2nd
Will Hernandez UTEP OG Very aggressive. Lacks a bit of height for NFL standards. Powerful, anchor very well in the runnig game, able to stay low and put his hands on the defender and block him out of the play. Very strong. Lacks top athleticism. Very good in streight forward bloking but could have some problem with edge pass rusher suddely coming his way. Has very good body balance for a 330 pounds man. 1st He has a definite skill set. And he’s very good in what he can do. Has tremendous power and strength. Lacks movement, lacks just a bit of athleticism on the field to be able to face quickness and sudden explosion not coming by his front. Has the tools to develop a but has some size concerns. I don’t think the Broncos might have more than a late 1st or 2nd rounder on him. 1st – 2nd
Carlton Davis Auburn CB Very good technique in open field tackles. Played a lot of man to man in his last year in college. Lacks elite speed but looks to be aggressive and to be able to duel well in mana to man coverage. Tough player. 1st – 2nd He could be a great complement to Broncos CBs if Talib is let go. A bit bigger than Chris Harris and with a bit more of speed but has the same game approach. A true fighter that might not shine as the best CB in the field and can get burned at times but very resilient, solid and able to make plays. 1st – 2nd
Justin Reid Stanford S Has goos size and plays very aggressive. Has some very good speed and athletic skills. Always around the ball, able to come down to the LOS in a hurry and deliver blows. Lacks elite explosiveness and a bit of range in coverage. 2nd I don’t hink the Broncos are looking for S after the 5th pick in the draft and even there only if obliged because unable to trade back. He’s a very good prospect that brings attitude and aggressiveness together with very good athleticism. Has very good instincts and does a good job enough in coverage. I think he’s the right kind of S the Broncos like and could be very High on their board. Still not sure if they will pull the trigger in a position of depth if he’s there at the beginning of the 2nd round. i don’t think so. 1st – 2nd
Tyrell Crosby Oregon OT Has very good size, looks bigger that his listed numbers, very powerful can push away defenders with ease at the collegiate level. Run quite smoothly around the LOS and looks aggressive coming into his assignment. Lacks a bit of footwork and elite athleticism to be plugged in at LT at the beginning of his NFL career but he could develop into a very solid one. 2nd He could start and be a solid RT right away in the NFL. With time and understanding the speed and power of the NFL he could then swith to the left side when with more playing experience. This with a lot of work and will to get there. I think the Broncos could be seriously thinking of him if he’s still there in the board at the beginning of the 2nd round and even at the end of the first because he blocks with a nasty streak as they looks to like. 1st – 2nd
James Daniels
Iowa OC Has good size for a C. Has very good athleticism and quickness at the snap. Looks powerful and fast reaching his assignment. 1st The Broncos interviewed him. Looks very powerful and quick.  Can play both OG and C and would bring athleticism and strength to the Oline. 1st – 2nd
D.J. Chark LSU WR Has great size and very good athletic skills. Also very smooth running with the ball. As some serious speed and battle hard in contested balls. Has very good athletic skills too. Not afraid of blocking. 1st – 2nd The Broncos brought him in Denver for a visit. I think they have a late 1st, early 2nd round grade on him and he could be targeted with that early second pick if still on the board. He’s one of the few WR this year that really has it to be an high pick. 1st – 2nd
Derrius Guice LSU RB Has great size for a RB. Great balance and very good explosion, has some serious elusiveness and can make defender miss the tackle with is suddeness. Very good acceleration too while hitting the running lane. Does not go down after the first contact, able to gain some more extra yards. Looks strong and can catch the ball out of the backfield. Noi real evidence of pass blocking proness. 1st – 2nd He reminds a bit of Knowshon Moreno in college but is a bit more explosive and has more elusiveness in his game. I think that he’ll have to work on hos pass blocking because with that in place he could be a three down back. He lacks elite speed and athleticism too so I think he could be a good 2nd rounder. 2nd
Marcus Davenport UTSA DE Has great sise and power. Has some quickness for a guy of his size. Perfect DE in a 4-3 defense allignment or will have to move inside in a 3-4 scheme and play as DE. Lacks slite explosiveness at the snap and short area quickness. Has some very good laterla movement at times. Rely a lot in his power and in his bull rush. 1st He might be rated higher for 4-3 defense teams but even if I understand that he has great size and could even bulk up and be bigger in the NFL I think he’ll be a DE in the 3-4 Allignment and most provbablu is where he could develop into a very good player. I think that in this new position ghe could have a late first early 2nd round grade, or even a plane 2nd round grade by the Broncos. 2nd
Roquan Smith Georgia ILB Lacks ideal size and weight. Looks to have some quick feet but is not always as explosive has the media portrays him. Very good instinct but could be pushed around by bigger Olinemen. Will need time to adjust his game to the speed and power of the NFL. Also his tackling technique need refinement but could really run with the running back coming out of the backfield. Interesting prospect. 1st He’s not the biggest ILB out there and his coverage skills are not a sure thing but he has great insting a run stuffer and spying the QB. Plays with aggression and looks to be a leader on the field. I think that there is much to be enhanced to not really wich the Broncos to go back in the 1st round to get him but in case he’d fall in the middle of the 2nd round he could be the ILB the develop for one year and then take over as starter for as long as it could be. 2nd
Rashaan Evans
Alabama ILB Quick and explosive against the run. Really mobile and always around the ball at the LOS. Very good athletic skills. 1st – 2nd A very solid tackler, that is avery aggressive at the LOS and has very good instinct. In case the Broncos wants to use a 2nd round pick on a ILB he shgould be targeted. Not a sexy pick but I think he could be very good as ILB in the 3-4 defense if not asked to drop back in coverage much. He’ll be the instant starter to go along Brandon Marshall. 2nd
Ogbonnia Okoronkwo
Oklahoma OLB Lacks ideal size for NFL pass rusher, very sudden and athletic. Shows explosion and the ability of beat double teams. 2nd He’s more explosive the Shaq Barett and less powerful. Still I’m not sold on Denver OLB, a part Miller off course, and I’d like the Broncos to add some talented edge pass rusher through the draft. I give him only a 2nd round grade for the Broncos because of his size and also because I don’t think the Broncos would trade up at the last 10 picks of the 1st round to select an edge rusher if the actual roster at the position stays the same. Very aggressive player that brings a lot of enery and desire on the table. Would love to see the Broncos drafting him. 2nd
Anthony Miller Memphis WR Very quick, has great acceleration after the catch. Great body bakance and vision with the ball in his hands. Really fast. Did not run complex routes. Has very good hands and if requested is not coming short at blocking, although he’ll have to do a better job in the NFL. 1st – 2nd Has quickness and speed but muy concern is on his route running skills and his willing to block each and every other play. Still great talent that is worth a 2nd round pick. 2nd
Malik Jefferson Texas ILB Great instincs and quite explosive at the snap. Plays aggessive and with urgency. Has good size. Athletic and mobile, runs very well has good lateral speed and looks to be a good sideline to sideline ILB. 2nd Has all the tools the Broncos look for the mike ILB in the 3-4. I think he could provode great depth in his rookie year and then become the starter in year 2. An early second round draft pick might be just a bit too high but is also one of the few Broncos need at the moment. 2nd
Isaiah Oliver Colorado CB Has good size for a NFL CB. Has nioce speed and quick and energetic reation to the play. Really good in coming up in run support, fast and able to take good angle for tackling. In coverage has some speed can stay with the receiver but migh craft a bit his technique. Lacks elite athleticism to leap higher than the WR in contested catches. Able to go man to man all the way. 2nd The Broncos interviewed him. Looks very quick and nas some very good speed. Less aggresiive and lacks elite athleticism but very sticky and kind of tricky. Very good in coverage and really good in run support too. Could develop into a starting cover corner. 2nd
Da’Shawn Hand
Alabama DL5T Has very good but not great size for NFL standard. He look as the prototypical NFL 3-4 DE. Looks to have less power than what expected by a player of his size. 2nd he Broncos under Elway always took Dlinemen in the 2nd round if they liked them. In Hand case should not be any difference in case, as mentioned, that the Broncos like him, Is really less flashy than Payne and is a DE in the 3-4 defense. 2nd
Sony Michel
Georgia RB Has toon of speed and quickness. Home run threat. Looks to be big enough and fast enough to be a nightmare under the right offensive running scheme. Blocking is not his best skill. 2nd He could be the complementary quick and explosive runner that the Broncos really need and don’t have on the roster. His lack of pass protection prowess wil push him in the second round, his running and catching skills makes him a 1st round. I think that if the Broncos wants him, they have to take him very high in the 2nd round. 2nd
Uchenna Nwosu USC OLB Has good not great size for a 3-4 OLB. Has elite athletic skills and plays aggressive. Lacks elite explosion at the snap when rushing the passer but is ultra athletic and can find a way to get into the backfield. 2nd – 3rd Very productive and ultra athletic pass rusher. On the right scheme he’ll be very dangerous in the NFL just as he could be very nullified by the wrong scheme. He’ll start his NFL career as pass rush specialist but his skills are so high that a 2nd rounder might be needed to get him. 2nd
Isaiah Wynn Georgia OG Lacks ideal size for a T in the NFL and he’s also undersized as interior lineman. Looks very strong and powerful, gifted with great athletic skills for his size. 1st Looks better suited to play back at OG in the NFL. Very powerful and with some good footwork, looks athletic and able to move his opponent away. 2nd
Dallas Goedert S Dakota St TE Played at a lesser competition. Lacks quickness at the snap ad some athleticism as a ball catcher. Has very good lower body power and strength. As mentioned lacks abit of quickness but has very good burnst and is able to get a seconf gear while running his rout. Has some serious speed for his size and looks to have long arms too. Does a good job as a run blocker when at the LOS, understands blocking angles. Has good power and vblocks well also in pass blocking 1st – 2nd He could be a very nice addition for the Broncos since a complete TE is a major need. Question is how he’d fare against much tougher competition but he looks stout and strong, may need dome time to adjust but have all the athletic and physical tool to become a very good TE in the NFL if he puts himself at. 2nd
Jalyn Holmes Ohio State DL5T Gread size and always around the ball or creating havoc in the backfield when the moment matters. 3rd Natural size for a 3-4 DE, looks nasty and makes a lot of plays to the ball or into the backfield. Very disruptive. 2nd
Donte Jackson
LSU CB Lacks idel size, will need to add some bulk. Quick and aggressive in run support. Has good awareness. Played man to man coverage in college. Very  quick and tough player that has very good speed and can cover. 2nd The Boncos brought him in in Denver for a visit. He is the kind of player they kind of like, he has experience covering outside or as nickel CB. His versatility is an asset for creating depth. 2nd
Jessie Bates III Wake Forest FS Aggessive S that has great closing speed, close down well in run support. Fearless tackler, takes good angles in open field. Has good enough range in coverage and plenty of athleticism to tip passes. 2nd – 3rd I don’t think the Broncos would take a S if not at the 5th overall pick, but in case they would they migh have an high round pick on hi, Has all the cheks they want at S: good enough size, very athletic, aggressive, range in coverage to be sideline to sideline player. 2nd
Lorenzo Carter Georgia OLB Great size, very physical and athletic. Fast coming in blitzed should become a 3-4 OLB more than a 4-3 OLB. 2nd I really like that the Broncos could use him as rushing OLB but also against the run inside and outside. Very athletic for his size, would like to see him a bit more aggressive but could depend on the scheem too. 2nd
Duke Dawson Florida CB Has good size, quite aggressive CB. He does his best in run support when he comes fast and likes contact. Quick in reading the play and fast reacting to it. Has vvery good instincts to the ball. Plays aggressive. 2nd – 3rd I think he could start his career as nickel CB. He has good enough size, is not afraid to cover inside routes and plays very aggressive. 2nd
Rashaard Penny RB Good size for a RB, looks not too beeffy and has the ability to switch on and off his speed, very rare. Also mucho stronger than his body type would suggest, rare ability to break tackles and add extra yardage. Willing blocker bit has to get better at and more powerful too. Able to catch the ball out of the backfield but also as a receiver. Plays hard. 2nd – 3rd the Broncos had a private meeting in Denver with Penny and from his games you can understand why. He is a complete RB that has his own style of running and is able to make a tons of plays also as a receiver. He’ll hacve to get better at blocking to become a solid three down RB but meanwhile he could complete the Broncos backfield with some speed and breakaway skills both inside the tackles and outside. 2nd
Dane Cruikshank Arizona SS Has very good size for a S. Has explosiona and strength. React quick to the play. Plays aggressive and is always on what he’s doing. Rarely out of place: polished S, could be a hybrid S/LB. Good in coverage and with some good athleticism. 3rd – 4th Interviewed with the Broncos. Barrying medical or character red flag, he’s a very good football player that went unnoticed for the moct part. I don’t think the Broncos could darft a S of not one of the first two at 5th overall, but he could be an intriguing versatile defender that can be an edge rusher, nickel ILB and quite rangy DB. LAcks elite speed and athleticism but I see him having a very solid 2nd round from the Broncos. 2nd
James Washington Oklahoma State WR Athletic and good route runner, has very quick change of directions and brakes. Has very good, though not elite, speed and good hands. Not a true blocker. Plays with very good phisicality and uses to wrestle the ball away from defenders in contested catches. 2nd – 3rd Has the game of a nº1 receiver in the NFL and the size of a nº2. Main concern is if he’d be able to be so effective also in more complex offense than Oklahoma State but the talent id undeniable as undeniable is his effort in  making the catch. 2nd – 3rd
Mark Andrews Oklahoma TE Not really flashy and explosive but looks strong and good route runner and has good hands. Very good size. Has some experience blocking but is not the mauler that his size would suggest. 2nd Looks to be a more effective TE than Hauerman in college. More receiving threat and all around component of the offense. I would not take him with an high 2nd rounder, more a mid to low pick. 2nd – 3rd
Chukwuma Okorafor Western Michigan OT Has great size and body power too. Lacxks a bit of strength for a man of his size. Moves well laterally in the LOS, a little less comfortable reaching the second level of defenders.  Does a very good job bending his knees and has some good footwork. 3rd Does a very good job in pass protection, may lack a bit of athleticism but looks like a very solid prospect at RT. Is the most glaring need the Broncos have and he could be a prospect they could look into the second day of the draft. 2nd – 3rd
Frank Ragnow Arkansas OC Has great size for an interio Olineman. Very powerful in the runninggame, anchor very well on the ground and is able to block one on one the best Dlinemen of the country. Has some interesting speed for a guy of his size, reaches second level of defenders without losing any power. Quite polished blocker. Lacks a nit of athletic skills and some short area quickness. Lacks a bit of body balance when attacked by speed rusher, culd lose his feet and be beaten. 2nd I think that he could be extremely helpful to the Broncos bringing some power and size together with very much needed versatility. Denver might prefer athleticism and so in this case they coukld still have him on the board, barrying medical (he finished the season early for an ankle injury) or c¡haracter red flags. 2nd – 3rd
Christian Kirk
Texas A&M WR Small Wr for today NFL. Lacks elite speed and acceleration in open field. Very shifty and elusive with the ball in his hands, comfortable at kick returner makes defender miss with good short area quickness and very good body control. Lacks elite athleticism. Tough player that goes over the middle. More a slot prospect than atrue nº2. Does a very good job at blocking and very good route runner. 1st – 2nd I think the Bronco could and migh look at him for the third receiver spot if they don’t believe in Carlos Henderson. He’s much more slot material than Henderson that is a nº2 or even a nº1 receiver if he’ll ever gets his acts together. Kirk lacks elite speed and athleticism to be considered in the top of the 2nd round by the Broncos. 2nd – 3rd
Leighton Vander Esch
Boise State ILB Great size, has ability to run with TEs. Stout has some athleticism and power but lacks elite eplosiveness. Has an aggressive style of play, leader of the defense. Has good instinct against the run, always close to the ball also in support. Played in special teams and brings toughness to the defense. 1st For the Broncos I do really like him as upgrade as ILB. I think he’s a bit overrated at the moment, he’s a very solid football player that is always around the ball but does not spash out any superior athletic skills or things like that. I think he’ll be chosen between the second half of the 2nd round and the early pick of the third, the Broncos should try to trade up in the second to get him. He’ll be very useful in year 2, being a backup and special team player mainly as a rookie and then taking over the ILB position in 2019. 2nd – 3rd
Jaylen Samuels NC State RB Kind of nowadays jack of all trades that creative OC now loves in the NFL. Can run the ball, can catch out of the backfield and can catch alligned ad a TE at the LOS or WR. Has great body control that uses very well to halphimself catch the ball. Has some serious game speed, really difficult to be tackled from behind in openfield. Playmaker very dangerous, very though player that does nor hesitate on getting contact and great athlete. 3rd – 4th Complete player, has the look of the latest great Patriots RB thta can do it all. He can do a lot of things for his football team, will need to get a big more powerful to be able to absorbe NFL hits and I think that if he fits the mentality the Broncos look for, a high third rounder will have to be the minimum they’ll heve to invest on him. 2nd – 3rd
Rashaan Gaulden Tennessee CB “Silent” player that does not show up for most of the game but don’t make many mistakes and has nose for big plays. Very athletic and aggressive played mostly nickel corner but can play some S too. Good tackler always looking for the turnover looks very comfortable in running defense but can be very effective also in the passing game when facing the ball. 2nd I don’t think the Broncos would go for a S if not with he 5th pick overall. Still if they would Goulden is a very interesting player for them because of his athleticism, aggressiveness  and turnover search that bodes well in what the Broncos are looking for. Second day grade. 2nd – 3rd
Calvin Ridley Alabama WR Very Athletic and wth very good speed. Did not shine against Auburn. 1st – 2nd The Broncos need to look ahead and decid what to do with Sanders, if they’d keep him the roster is very solid at WR, especially at Nº 2 WR, if they trade him or release him they need to add talent. 3rd
Deontay Burnett USC WR Quick and fast changing direction, very good timing running routes.  Athletic and confortable running in the middle of the field. Will need to get bigger and stronger to can absorbe NFL defenders hits. 2nd Looks to be a very good prospect at the slot WR position that the Broncos really need. 3rd
Derrick Nnadi
Florida State DL1T Lacks a bit of size for the position. Strong and powerful, able to anchor very well against the run and to shed double teams. Has some explosion at the snap and can provide some inside push in the first two downs. Lacks the speed and elite quickness to be a three down Dlineman in the NFL but could become an elite run stopper. 3rd He can become the next great NT for the Broncos staying one year behind Peko Sr and learning to NFL speed and power under him. Strong and dominant against the run. 3rd
B.J. Hill NC State NT Has some quick step as pass rusher when moved against interior Okineman. Looks stout. A bit less powerful that what expected by a guy of his size but has some very good powerful first steps at the snap and good strength. Will have to get better core power and get better body balance. 2nd – 3rd Lacks elite athleticism and explosiveness but is a functional DT and NT on a 3-4 defense that might need time to develop his game on NFL speed and power. Had costant success at college and was very productive. Not a sexy pick but a very valuable pick if BJ Hill could be able to learn under Domata Peko for a year and taking over in 2019. 3rd
Akrum Wadley Iowa RB Has good size. Has explosion and is able to make defenders miss and has great closing speed to take the carry to the house.Great body balance, could have a bit more of patience but has good vision especially in open field. Has very good athletic skills. One cut and go runner. Able to catch the ball out of the backfield. Lacks strength to be able to be a consistent blocker in the backfield. Does a decent job at blocking out of the backfield. 4th Has very good running skills, very good vision and quickness and body balance. Lacks a bit of explosion when bursting after making the cut but has freat acceleration and closing speed. Has some good athleticism and can make catches out of the backfield and also downfield. Lacks strength to be a three down back early in his NFL career but has the skills set for what the Broncos need as a change of pace and outside runner. A second day grade for the Broncos barrying medical of character red flags. 3rd
Josey Jewell Iowa ILB Lacks just a bit of height. Very aggressive and physical. Has some good closin gspeed and some good athleticism. Lacks elite short area quickness but is a relentless pursuer and a good football player. Good in coverage in zone scheme, has enough speed and will to run sideline to sodeline though lacks the elite athleticism. 3rd Old style inside linebacker that plays very hard around the line of scrimmage but in his case is also able to cover some. Would bring immediate goos depth and special teams plays. He’s a leader and is said to be hardworker. The prototype of players the Broncos will target this year. 3rd
Darius Phillips Western Michigan CB Lacks a bit of size and strength, Very athletic, has good speed and great explosion to the ball. Aggressive he also played returner in special teams. 5th – 6th Did not play in a power conference. Has tons of athletic skills and explosion. Very aggressive style of play. Underrated. 3rd
Shaquem Griffin
UCF OLB Has a lot of athletic skills and speed off the the edge. Lacks size, at 6’0” is short even for 3-4 OLB. Aggressive and dynamic. Has explosion at the snap and is quick to get to the QB after passing over the OT. 3rd he lacks size and if not for overwhelming intangibles he’d not in line to be a 2nd day pick. He might even be chosen much higher than 3rd but that will be huge overdrafting because of intangibles. Still is to be seen if he can held the edge against the run in the NFL or if he’ll be a pass rushing specialist. 3rd
Terrell Edmunds VA Tech SS Has good size for a DB, has very good athleticism too. Able to make some good open field tackle. Lacks elite speed but has some. Has some good coverage skills when facing the ball and not having to track it in the air. 3rd – 4th I don’t think the Broncos would draft a S if not in the 1st round but I think the Broncos could have  agood grade on Edmunds: he has quckness and athleticism and plays aggressive. 3rd
Hercules Mataafa Washington St OLB Inside pass rusher that has OLB built body  and great explosion and quickness at the snap. Little bit of a developmental prospect for the NFL since there is not direct translation for his role into the NFL. 5th – 6th The Broncos could be very interested in him as they might see great potential in him as OLB, maybe pass rusher specialist in his rookie year and try to develop a three downs OLB down the line. If so I think they’d have more of 3rd round grade on him than a middle rounder. They might also have really residual interest and so it could be a priority free agent. I saw great quickness and versatility together with toughness and aggressiveness. I think the Broncos, if no personal or medical red-flag tagged to him, might have a 3rd round grade: great potential to be developed on a key position. 3rd
Davontae Harris Illinois State CB Has good size for a CB. Very aggressive. Has osme very good athleticism. Has very good explosion and suddeness. Need to creaft his technique in coverage but has speed to play man to man coverage. Fearful in run support. Played gunner in special teams. 4th Played at a lesser level of competition , very athletic and has an aggressive style of playint that will have the Broncos very interested in him barrying medical or character red flags that would erase him from the board. 3rd
Daurice Fountain Northern Iowa WR Played at lesses comeptition. Has good enough size for nº2 receiver in the NGL. Has great quickness at receiving the ball and very good athleticism. Able to get high up and grab the ball in contested catches. Runs good enough routes on the outside. Does look as good going over the middle and ther is no indication of blocking skills. 3rd – 4th I really do like his skills at catching the ball and his speed, lacks elite explosiveness but has quickness. Might become a nº2 receiver because he looks not very entusistic to go over the middle as the slot receiver shoudl do. All in all a seconf day grade by the Broncos, given no medical or character red flags. 3rd
Courtland Sutton
SMU WR Big body, good blocking skills against DBs on the LOS and downfield. Not overly explosive at the snap. Lacks elite speed and athleticism. Powerful, not really smooth running with the ball. Always trying to use his size in a contested ball, ending up getting flagged for offensi pass interference at times. Has very good acceleration north south, able to make sudden laterl shifts. 2nd There are some concerns about his game speed and his ability running complex routs. He looks like a good possession receiver with size and power, very aggressive and powerful and dangerous in the bubble screens becuase able to make defender miss. Still lacks the elite athleticism and explosion that Demaryous Thomas had when coming out of Georgia Tech and is clear in his not fluid run while with the ball in his hands. Very good blocker. I think the Broncos have a lesser round on him, abrrying personal and medical red flags, than general opinion: a 3rd round sounds fair mainly because the elite athleticism is not noticeable in his videos. 3rd
J’Mon Moore
Missouri WR Has great size, will need to add some muscle to absorbe NFL hits. Has good speed and long arms. Able to place some blocks at the LOS and in open field. Looks more comfortable running outside routes than a accross the field. Able to make double moves: Has some athleticism lacks a bit of explosion. Has some drops but Demaryous Thoms also has. 4th Tall receiver that lacks a bit of explosion. Able to place blocks but not a good finisher. Can be a long throws target is very able to run good routes. I like his games and I think the Brobcos could have him rated even higher than the general consensus. he could bring depth and a 3rd/4th WR option and a red zone target. 3rd  -4th
Royce Freeman Oregon RB Has good vision and looks for the most part to settle patient behind his blockers. Can also align at the LOS as a receiover and is able to run some routs. Has some power and is able to get some extra yards after first contact. Lacks some acceleration to run consistently tosses or outside runs in the NFL. Lacks elite speed and explosion, not very elusive. 4th Patient runner tha has good vision and is able to get the hole to run through.  The lacks of explosiveness will make him drop a bit in this draft full of very good running back. His game reminds me a bit of Devonte Booker: more of a between the tackles runner with good hands and able to get extra yartds after the catch. The big difference however, is that Freeman has great vision and patience. I think the Broncos might have a 3rd round grade on him although the need at RB is for a speedster. 3rd – 4th
Holton Hill Texas CB Has great size but lacks strength a bit to be able to tackle opponent consistently in open field. Quick at the snap and changing direction. Still not very confident in run support and has hesitation on some plays. Special team ace. 5th The Broncos likes to start getting depth at CB and special team plyers between the end of the third round nad the 5th round. In Hill case I guess a late 3rd round could be the grade the Broncos have on him 3rd – 4th
Chad Thomas Miami (FL) DE Has great size has some explosion at the snap and  quick first steps to be able to past through NFL Olinemen and create havoc in the backfield. Lacks a bit of strength and power and will have to gain some of them to be able to face NFL Olinemen. Will need time to get bigger and more powerfull but with his quickness and explosion he could become a very good penetrating 3-4 DE in the NFL if he’ll put himself at. Underrated prospect. 6th – 7th The most film I see about him the most play I see and I reall¡y start to like his game and his abilities. Has the quickness to beat inside OT and speed, at his size, to speed rush the QB or the ball carrier. At times really impressive at times quite silent. a high mid round pick because with hard work in his rookie year, he could really take over in his 2nd NFL year. 3rd – 4th
Jerome Baker Ohio State ILB Lacks ideal size but is very quick and fast changing direction in open field. Needs to get stronger and heavier to play LB in the NFL. Very athletic and has some explosiosm. Has very good vision of the developing play. 2nd – 3rd His lack of weight is something to look on, he’ll need his rookie year to get ready physically and get used to play at a heavier size than his college day. It concerns me a bit and I think that because of that he’ll slide a bit on draft days and will be one of the first players taken in the third day.  Bottom line if the Broncos likes him, they can get him at the ned of the third. 3rd – 4th
Harrison Phillips
Stanford NT Big and powerful, able to occupy blockers and also to move them around leaving holes for LB rush eth QB or stop the run. Able also to create some very consistent pressure on the QB in college ranks. Has average size for the position in the NFL. Anchor very well and looks to have quite good body control. 2nd the Broncos never looked interested in run stuffer DT in the first three round of the draft, so I continue the trend. He could be added and could learn one year under Peko and then take over in 2019 as starter. 3rd – 4th
Jaleel Scott NMSU WR Great size, will need to add some muscles. Lacks elite speed and especially top speed. Has great catching skills together with a great athletic skills for his size. Great hands. Looks smooth runnig with the ball and runs some good routes. Does a good enough job blocking downfield. 5th – 6th Very good prospect, barrying medical or character red fags, for Broncos standard. Tall, has the frame to add more muscles, athletic and with great hands, very underrated. High mid round pick because he’ll have to develop his body and game before he could be really a consistent target in the NFL. 3rd – 4th
Tracy Walker
Louisiana SS Has great size and looks to have long arms. Have very good athletic skills and plays very aggessive. Could play any DB position for some teams, has skillset to play man to man a bit but overall as nickelback or SS so that he could use his read and reaction close to the LOS. Has leaping ability and takes good taking angles on ball carrier especially on the outside. 5th Interesting player from a college where the Broncos could have some first hand insight. He could be very appealing to the Broncos for his versatility as DB in the actual Broncos scheme, a la Will Parks but with more athleticism. Lacks top end speed. 3rd – 4th
Tim Settle VA Tech NT Great size for a NT in the NFL. Ha ssome quickness and some good power, lacks elite athleticism, explosion at the snap and som elateral movement that would allow him to be able to create some havoc in passign downs. Stount against the run, able to take double teams in college and does a good use of hands to keep himseld free at blocks. 3rd – 4th A very intriguing option to get a future starter at NT for the Broncos with some pedigree. He has less core power than a penentrating DT or 3-4 DE but is big and can occupy space. Grooming him one year behing Peko and addign very valuable depth this year at NT could be a very wise choice in the 3rd or maybe even later rounds. 3rd – 4th
Nathan Shepherd Fort Hays State DE Canadain prospect, played at a much lesser level of competition and dominate. He was  much quicklier and powerful than the rest of players. Has quick first steps out of the snaps, he’s very powerful and aggressive. Has very good size for a NFL Dlineman. 2nd Looks really as a disruptive 1 Tech or 3 tech Dlineman. Fort Hays State is not really far from Colorado, I guess the Broncos and the Chiefs had seen him play quite few times. He’s 24, playing on a division II level. A bit overhyped, IMO but he worked, literally, his chace off and deserve to be on a NFL roster. I guess the Broncos have a high mid round grade on him. 3rd – 4th
Avonte Maddox Pittsburgh CB Lacks ideal size but he’s very athletic and has very good explosion and speed. Very competitive. Has the quickness and the aggressive style of play to be a good nickle CB in the NFL and coild also play against nº2 WR. 5th Had a meeting with the Broncos. I can see why the Broncos looked at him,  A part the sizem he has all the skills the Broncos wants in a DBs, he calso could bring some versatility at CB and as special team returner. 3rd – 4th
Kemoko Turay
Rutgers OLB Freat size for a 3-4 OLB, has very good quickness, power and some good acceleration at the snap. Looks to lack elite explosion. Able to swim through blockers and create pressure in the pocket. Does a good enough job in the running defense setting the edge to not allow running back to get to the outside. Lacks elite speed and explosiveness. Has good athleticism 2nd Has very agood athleticism and quickness but has issues when the Olineman is able to get his hands on him: he does not have the explosiveness or speed to get away for the Olineman. A bit overhyped at the moment. Fringe second day grade. 3rd – 4th
Michael Gallup Colorado St WR Looks quick and very athletic. Able to make acrobatic catches and to make sudden change of direction. Very good balance and body control. Has average size and will need to bulk up a bit to sustrain NFL hits. 3rd The Broncos coached him in the senior bowl, he was one of the best receivers but had problem digesting the playbook. Is safe to say that he has great talent but might have to wait the 3rd day of the draft before to be selected. He could be very beneficial to the Broncos idf they could be able to use him well while he adapt to the complexity of the NFL game. 4th
Ito Smith Southern Miss RB Has good size, very elusive and dynamic. Has some patience running the ball and is very good catching passes out of the backfield or alligned at the LOS as WR. He can cover some in pass protection. Has very good acceleration lacks elite speed. Played kick retuturner too. Has very good speed on the outside thanks to his acceleration. Overall lacks a bit of explosion when hitting the hole ot getting going. Can block a bit can catch and played kick returner in special teams. 5th – 6th Underrated prospect that has great elusiveness and can do a bit of everything. I think the Broncos could have him as late 4th  round grade. 4th
Josh Adams Notre Dame RB Has big frame for a RB. Looks very dynamic with the ball on his hands. Better runner between the tackles, lacks some lateral speed. Looks to have inital good acceleration in open field but not home run threat. Patient runner, able to hide behind the Oline waiting the hole to come by and the exploding good acceleration through it. Not the most elusive RB but his size allows him to absorb some hit more than other RB. Good catcher when coming out of the backfield. 4th – 5th I think the Broncos are looking for a change of pace RB and he’s more similar to Booker and CJ Anderson but looks to have good speed and acceleration together with patience. Booker was a 4th round pickup for the Broncs and I think that Adams is a bit better than him. 4th
Martinas Rankin Mississippi State OT Strong, lack a bit of core power na dbody balance. Has good not great size for an NFL OT. Very good awareness in pass protection. Lacks elite footwork but has soe interesting quickness with which he’s facing quick pass rushing movements, has quite good body control. 3rd All in all a very good prospect that could play RT or OG at the beginning of his career. He’ll have to adapt to NFL speed and power so in muy opinio he could carry a mid rounds grade by the Broncos as interior lineman. 4th
Sean Welsh Iowa OG Has some good power and is able to move well around the LOS. Looks bogger than his actual listing. Played also OT in collge, lacks the size for being a OT in the nefl. Also a bit eavy footed in pass protection. Where at times he’s a bit static. Does a good job in run protection taking care of the edge defender with quickness and ower. 4th I think he’ll need time to get better core power in order to have better body balance and become more powerful and also to learn to play OG in the NFL but if he’s at I think he has the talent to become a starter. 4th
Kyzir White West Virginia S Has great size for a DB. Come quick in run support or to tackle receiver at the LOS, aggrassibe tackler, plays until the whistle, has great closing speed. Lacks some explosion at the snap and elite speed. 4th Very interesting prospect for the Broncos. Very good football player with size, aggresive style of play and resolute. Great closing speed is a good plus. 4th
Siran Neal Jacksonville St SS Has good size and plays really aggressive. Has very good explosion at the snap and uses it to get into the backfield and make plays. Has very good instincts and does a good job enough in man to man coverage especially in slot position. Played in special teams as gunner. 6th – 7th Underrated prospect. I don’t think the Broncos are looking for a nickel corner after the addition of Sua’ Cravens. They look for a corner. I still think that he has the DB style that Denver coaches like a lot. I think they might have a middle rounds grade on him, but eventually not select him because when on the board in the 4th round, they might have other players with the same grade but on position of less depth. 4th
Korey Robertson Southern Miss WR Looks bigger than his listed size, plays big. Has wide fram and agreat athleticism. Exlosive can make great catcher. Lacks elite speed but does have good body balance and challenge defenders well in contested balls. Powerful and some short area quickness. Runs ok routes. Has some questionable drops. 5th – 6th Taking in mind drops and that he’s “only” 6’1” I think that the only question, a part medical or character issue he could have, is his route running. He does some so I go with that he’ll be able to learn more complex playbooks given some time to adapt to the Pro life. Very solid 4th rounder: kind of smaller school playmaker that better take earlier than later because he could explode into a superstar if he puts his head into it. 4th
Genard Avery Memphis ILB Lacks ideal heigth. Aggressive and stout.Very powerful. Diagnose quickly the play and react accordingly. Lacks short area quickness and movements, lacks quick change of direction. Lacks top end speed but has some very good burnst at the snap. 3rd Aggressive ILB with some athleticism and quickness, lacks elite speed and change of direction. Lacks ideal size but is big and can make plays. High mid round grade for the Broncos I think, barrying medical or character concerns. 4th
Dante Pettis Washington WR Looks a bit smaller than his listed size. Dynemic playmaker in college. Has good athleticism and great body balance. Has some speed but not elite either. Very tough, able to make defender miss, runs very good route at college level and block faily well at college level too. Will need to get bigger but his body does not look very big. Has some quickness, especially in the firsts steps, but lacks some explosiveness. 2nd – 3rd I don’t know how well his body type and his playing style convert into the NFL. He’s not a nº1 receiver in the NFL, not sure about nº2 because the lack of elite speed or burst and I don’t know how he could consistently play around the middle of the field if he’s not becoming more powerful and bigger but I think that is where the Brobcos could be interested in him. Being still injured (severe ankle twist) at his Pro Day might let him fall in the third day of the draft. 4th  -5th
Braden Smith Auburn OG Very good size and frame for an interior Olineman, tends stay a bit to high sometimes, causing his to be ootfooted by the more athletic Dlineman. Has strenght and power to keep one on one blocks with powerful interior Dlinemen, lacks eltite athleticism. When not caught to high by the defender has the strenght and lower body power to block one on one big and strong interior Dlinemen. Might also get a look a C in the NFL 2nd – 3rd He’s very solid in what he does only he has some glaring issues in the pass protection and also did not dominate in the running game: was very good but not very outstanding. He will need time and development both physiscal and mentally to be able to play NFL games. 4th – 5th
Micah Kiser Virginia ILB Lacks some height but look big and strong. Lacks explosion and elite speed. Lacks elite athleticism. Very powerful and strong. Use well his hands to shed blocks. Has long arms and reacts quickly to the ball carrier when in his zone or in man to man. Takes very good tackling angles. Looks slow but come to make the play. 4th Played in a mainly zone defensive scheme. Lacks sideline to sideline athleticism and speed. Strong and powerful. Looks not the tuype of Broncos LB but  he looks a playmaker when defending the run or when in man to man. Very good quickness and reaction to the play. ABle to tackle his assignemt very quickly aster the catch. Smart player that play easy but clean and very hard. Blue collar LB. 4th – 5th
Jordan Whitehead Pittsburgh SS Has good enough size, lacks a bit of height but looks stout. Lacks elite burnst and explosiveness. Not sudden but has very good closing speed. Good athletic skills, likes to come in run support and deliver blows. Not a sure tackler at times when coming down fast tackling WRs close to the LOS. 5th SS that played deep to then come up fast and deliver blows. A bit more questionable in coverage where he’s not the rangiest of all the draft. Has the athleticism that the Broncos look for and plays aggessive. If the coaches think that they could teach him and not having missed tackles he could be on Denver board as mid round pick. 4th – 5th
Kalen Ballage Arizona State RB Good size, has the frame to add more muscles. Has some patience running the football and has very good hands catching it. Able to hit the hole hard. His size become his enemy when the hole is not there, lacks acceleration and some explosion to play tosses and outside tackles runs consistently. Put up exposive numbers at the combine but his videos does really not show up accordingly. 3rd He might have to convert to hybrid RB/FB, definetely an HB in the NFL with his hands in a creative offense he could be use in the backfield and as WR. A versatile player but I really don’t know if the Broncos are really into the big RB market. I guess they might have a middle round grades on him. 4th – 5th
Folorunso Fatukasi
Connecticut NT Has very good size and strength. Lacks elite quickness but has some explosion at the snap. Does not have great lateral movement, if blocked he just keep pushing streight forward. Very reliable and consistent against the run. Great pursuer, he keeps on playing and pursuing the ball carrier until the play is over. 4th He’s more of a NT or two downs Dlineman in the NFL than a pass rusher. He lacks the athletic skills to be a factor in obvious passing plays. Still very reliable and very traight forward strong against the run. 4th – 5th
Tre’Quan Smith
UCF WR Has wide body and is not afraid to go and make catches in traffic. Physical, does a good enough job blcoking downfield. Has some athleticism and uses well his body to shield the ball. Lacks explosion at the reception, might allow NFL CBs to get back at him and close the play. Has good enough body balance and can make some defenders miss. Run good enough routes. 3rd Lacks elite speed, has good enough athleticism but lacks quickness. Could be 3rd or 4th WR and provide depth in the Broncos roster. Mid rounds grade 4th – 5th
Deadrin Senat South Florida NT Lacks a bit of height, has broad shoulders and looks big. Has some power, received a lot of “double teams” attention. Lacks explosion at the snap, has some first steps quickness and plays very aggressive. Has great lateral movemnt at the LOS. 3rd Will not project to be a stud pass rusher in the NFL, lacks explosion and speed, wide frame would make him easy to grab by Olinemen. Still very powerful and great lateral movement that helps him get to the backfield and create havoc. 4th – 5th
DaeSean Hamilton Penn State WR Has quite average size and at times looks smaller that his listing. Moves well looks to be a smooth runner, thought he wasn0t ask tro run complicated routes in the easy pass offense at Penn State. Very focused on important downs, always ready if call up for a contested catch or to adjust his body to get to the ball or to protect it from the defender. Team Captain 3rd I like his mental set-up and the fact that in important downs he looks very focused and whn thrown on he has been able to make plays. Has the size to be a versatile slot or 3rd receiver, lacks the speed to be a vertical threat and the physicality to be a Nº1 target. I think he lacks a bit of explosion to be a true slot receiver and route running cannot be truly evaluated. All in all I’d like Denver to have a mid round grade on him. 4th – 5th
Kevin Toliver II LSU CB Great size for a CB. Has good athletic skills and awareness. Able to follow the reciever in crossing routes. Quite aggressive and has some speed to stay wirh most od the receivers 3rd – 4th Interesting CB that plays aggressive and physical. Lacks a bit of quickness to react to the play and some speed to be a complete cover corner but that brings aggressivenes and depth 4th – 5th
Skyler Phillips
Idaho St OG Looks bigger that his actual listed size. Also very strong and has some great lower body power. Holds well the position in the passing game and is powerful in the running game, can run to the second level of defenders and plave a block at ease. 4th – 5th Playes at lesser level of competitiion and although he deominate there I guess the Broncos could be interested in hism if they found out that he couls play OC a bit too and therefor bring versatility. Very powerful. 4th – 5th
Durham Smythe
Notre Dame TE Great size. Does a very good job blocking at the LOS. Also a serviceable and stout special team player. Able also to catch some balls. Lacks elite athleticism and speed. Able to run good routs to make up for his lack of quickness at the snap. 4th – 5th Good blocking TE prospect that can provide some versatility since he can also catch the ball. Will need time to adjust his game to teh power and speed of the NFL but has really the chance to become a good NFL TE that brings balance to the offense and could oblige the defense to play honest. 4th – 5th
Cole Madison Washington St OG Has very good size for OG, played T in college too. Looks solid in his footwork as a OG, has some athleticism and moves well in pass protection. Looks stout and can take one on one with interior pass rushers. Has some issues prolonguing the block and with quick pass rushers. Played special teams. 5th His versatility could intrigue the Broncos a lot. He has some above average athletic skills got an OG and slightly below for a RT. But the experience he gained being a more than solid RT at Washington State might make him look like the developmental versitile OG/RT the Broncos might be looking for. A mid round pick usually is the moment where the Broncos look at this kind of players on their board. 4th – 5th
Ian Thomas Indiana TE Has very good size, able to place a block or chip the shouder of the edge rusher. Lacks elite explosiveness and quickness. Powerful, lacks elite athleticism. Has good hands and run acceptable routes.Has some speed while running with the ball, also because of his size it’s not very easy to be brought down by behind. 2nd – 3rd I like his game and I really do think that he could add that TE presence that could allow to play a lot of plays with him either blocking or coming out as a receiver. It is the kind of TE that the Broncos need but they won0t use a 2nd or 3rd round on a TE that lacks explosiveness and some athleticism. I think they grade him as a 4th rounder, maybe even low 4th rounder. 4th – 5th
Martez Carter Grambling State RB Played also kick and punt returner at Grambling State. Very good shoert area quickness and body balance. Can suddenly changing direction has explosion to get in open field. One cut runner type of player, will need to get bigger. Lacks ideal size. Has vision and enough patience to let the play develop. Can catch the ball not indication if he can consistently block. 6th – 7th Underrated prospect. Between RB and special team returner I really don’t understand how he’s generally rated as late round pick. I truly hope the Broncos have a 4th round on him and wait max into the 5th round to take him to Colorado. 4th – 5th
Sam Hubbard Ohio State OLB High effort player, great pursuit. Lacks elite athleticism and power. Lacks elite quckness at the snap and explosiveness in the first steps after the snap. Has great size and played next to tons of talent. 1st – 2nd Will have to adjust his play to be able to see the field at the NFL level. Great college player but need to get stronger and more powerful in the NFL and learn more technique to be able to enter in rotation as 3-4 OLB only. The Broncos will look for depth and pass rushers and he could be a middle round prospect that will need time to develop. 5th
Trey Quinn
SMU WR Intelligent player: does the sliitle thing that help teammates to get an edge over defenders. Kick returner on special teams. Very dynamic, looks very fluid running with the ball. Does a good job enough also blocking DBs. Able to make athletic catches even though he’s a small receiver. Has some initial quickness and some good game speed 5th I don’t recall the Broncos to have taken a WR in the 4th round under Elway, they did in the 5th. Quinn is a dangerous player in the NFL, will need to get used to the speed and athe blows of powerful and fast defender but has short area quickness looks to be a tough player and has some very good speed. If no mediacl or character red flag is tagge on him, I think teh Broncos could be interested and having him on their board. 5th
Keke Coutee Texas Tech WR Quick smll size of WR, has very good body balance and looks powerful. Quick and fast has some very good elusiveness with the ball in his hands. Has great speed and very good acceleration in open field. Special Team returner too. 4th – 5th Plays more like a catching RB out of the backfield or as deep threath. Not see many complex route run by Coutee. His experience on special team is good but not crucial. He could be a 4th WR, I don’t see him playing in the slot, does not look as a technicial WR more a pure speed and elusive player. 5th
Nyheim Hines NC State RB Played also special teams as a gunner. Has good soft hands. Punt returner too. Can run the ball on the inside and can catch the ball coming out of the backfield. Lacks elite speed but has explosiveness, at least a bit, great body balance and can break tackles.  Has some elusiveness that would make him quite hard to tackle in open field. 3rd I think the Broncos could be interested especially for his special teams experience. Lacks a bit of speed and vision as RB to have him higher than this but could be used to keep defenses balanced, especially as receiver. Won’t porvide much as a blocker and for this reason a mid rounds pick. 5th
Mason Cole Michigan OC Quick and explosive running to teh second level and able to move pretty well and place blocks. Played LT in 2017 but has experience at C and as OG too. Very versitile and looks to be always on top of the play, regardless on win or being won on his assignment. Does not have the smoothest feet to start his NFL career at T position. Looks to be  a smart player that might need time to add some core power and to adapt and learn how to play at NFL level. 4th – 5th Will need to get stronger and more powerful to not be overpowerd by interior pass rushers. A prospect that if falls should interest a lot the Broncos for the versatility, durability and the awareness with whay he plays. Middle rounder that could be a starter in year 2. 5th
Isaac Yiadom Boston College CB Has very good speed and it’s a big pursuer. Has good sizel looks taller than his listing. Lacks quickness in laterl movement and in sudden change of direction. Not the quicknest in run support. 3rd – 4th CB with a lot of game speed but that lacks elite agility and quickness. The Broncos took a similar porspect some years ago in the 5th round so there I list him. Played in some zone concept and not overly aggressive. 5th
Charlie Callinan Boston College TE Will need to get bigger. Quite good body power and body control. Lacks elite athleticism and explosiveness with the ball in his hands. Has very good body control to shield the ball when targeted. Has some good speed and smooth movement even. Has some sudden movement to the bakl that makes him difficult to cut off from the ball from a defendive back. CFA He’s a pass catching TE that lacks a bit of size and power but that could become very dangerous pass catcher when the run game is going. I think the Broncos are looking more to a blocking TE that can catch the ball to but at the moment he’s quite underestimated. I think some team will take him at very least in the 6th round but could go as high as 3rd. If the Broncos wants a seam pass catching TE with good football skills and reliabkle hands they might look at him in  the 5th round. 5th
Wyatt Teller VA Tech OG Very good size and core power at OG. Stout, anchor well at the ground and bend well his knees, able to dominate in the pass protection against aggressive interior Dlinemen. Able to re-adjust and get back at his blockwhen at first beaten by the defender. Not a good finisher in the running game. 5th – 6th A very solid prospect that might have size and footwork to provide some skills at RT too as backup. Will need a bit of tme to learn to play at NFL speed and power but still very solid in pass protection and good but with room to grow in run protection. 5th
Greg Stroman VA Tech CB Lacks ideal size and weigth. Has some very good game speed, able to shadow most of the receivers and really able to break routes and make plays on the ball. Underrated fighter that will leave everything he has on the field. 7th – CFA I think he0s underrated at the moment and it’s the kind of DB the Broncos like to have on their roster. Competitor and well respected by his teammates, does a good enough job in coverage and is able to play mana to man and also make some plays. If developed well, in technique and tricks, he culd become a reliable very good backup in the Broncos team and this is the reason why I think the Broncos could have him rated a bit higher than the general consensus. 5th
Russell Gage LSU WR Has great size and explosion. Had some drops. Has great open field speed and has good vision. Played gunner ain special teams too. CFA Underestimated, he has size and speed. Has some drops but a creatibe offense will find ways to use him. This kind of size and game speed is not very common. I think that barrying medical or character red flags  the Broncos could have him ranked much higher than the general opinion. 5th
Braxton Berrios Miami (FL) WR Has some serious quickness and turn corners really fast. Looks to have some reliable hands. Undersized but this favors him as slot receiver. Looks to have a thick body and to run good enough routes. Not agfraid to go over the middle. 6th Underrated prospect. Has very good game speed and even better quickness. Slot receiver are said to grow in trees but Denver cannot find one. I think that a middle round pick couild be spent on him if the Brobcos are looking for a slot receiver. 5th
Trent Harris Miami (FL) OLB Has very good quickness at the snap and some serious speed to rush the QB inside and outside. Pass rusher specialist in college. Undersized, has problem when the Olineman is able to put hands on him because he does not have the strength to move past the Olineman. CFA More of the same of when Shaquill Barrett came out of Colorado State, even easier to see his pass rushing skills and his body type that would be perfect for 3-4 rusher OLB. Barrett incredible went undrafted, I don’t know if  Harris will, I personaly don’t think so. He coudl go as high as 5th rounder (because his lack of production in any other area). He’s actually projected by media to go undrafted. Let’s take a wise call and say that the Broncos takes him in the 5th round to wrup up their draft with depth at edge rushers. 5th
Trey Samuel South Carolina State RB Played  Kick Returner at South Carolina State. Dynamic, can play in the backfield. Has wide and thick body. Has some good acceleration and some speed. Can block some as RB in pass protection. Undersized for the NFL, has some short area quickness that puts him back into the conversation. Has good vision for the level of play he faced. CFA Underrated prospect. If cleared by medical or character concerns and given that he played at a lower level of competition he’d be at least given a late round pick by the media. 5th
Joel Iyiegbuniwe Western Kentucky ILB Lacks ideal size for the NFL, has some athleticism but not the most aggressive linebacker in the draft. Has the speed to get to the sideline. Has some very good acceleration to get to the ball carrier. 4th – 5th His lacks of aggressivenes it’s worrying me a bit. Still he’s the type of ILB the Broncos looks for: Athletic with some speed and some quickness: sideline to sideline . He can get better at his tackling technique abut as a rookie could handle special teams duties and prepare to be the next starter at ILB in 2019. 5th
Oren Burks
Vanderbilt ILB Has really good instincts and awareness. Very good size, will add some muscle in the NFL. Lacks a bit of explosion and sudden change of direction. Will need to get stronger and more powerful. 3rd Does a lots of good decisions on the football field but will need to get stronger and more powerful to be able to make plays. Lacks a bit of athleticism and explosiveness. A good mid round pick grade for the Broncos because his ability to be in the right place. 5th
Andrew Brown Virginia DL5T Has the 4-3 DE body type but could also play DE in the 3-4. Plays very aggressive and has some good first step quickness. Has power to move back  Olinemen into the backfield. Does a great job against athe run and when moved inside to rush against interior Olinemen. When on a DL5T against OT in pass rush he does not have enough explosion and speed to get past them as a pass rusher. 4th – 5th He could be a good NT/DE for the Broncos as two downs lineman. Has great aggression and plays hard. 5th – 6th
Matthew Thomas Florida State OLB Very interesting prospect for teams using 3-4 defensive front. Very quick setting the edge against the running game. Has very good size, will need to bulk up to not be blown away by bigger NFL Tackles. 7th I like a lot what he brings to the table and I ust cannot understand wy he has a CFA grade tagged right now. He has som esize to go with very good quickness against the run. Is not the same productive as a pass rusher. I’d think Denver should look at him in the 5th round 5th – 6th
Joseph Noteboom
TCU OT Has good but not great size. Has quick enough feet to play T in the NFL. Looks solid moving at the second level of defenders. Lacks a bit of quickness and lateral movement to be always on top of his assignment. Awareness at times is lacking: needs to finish his assignment. Has some strength but could gte better core power to help him getting better body balance. bends well in pass protection but lacks elite athleticism. Rush well in open field blocking. 3rd I think he could start hi NFL career as RT, lacks elite athleticism for be slotted at LT.Has good enough size looks very big as some strength and has good enough footwork. I think the Broncos always try to draft for athleticism but he could bring versatility if he could become an OG. Mid to low round pick. 5th – 6th
Will Clapp LSU OG Played C also in his kast year in college. Has very good size for an interior Olineman, has some power and quickness at the snap. Moved to C in his senior year. Aggressive blocker. Lacks elite athleticism. 6th – 7th I think his versartility and overall play is quite underrated. He played in a heavy run first offense and playes various positions. Has the look of a OG but can play C at a good level: this speak of learning skills and will to succeed. 5th – 6th
Dalton Schultz Stanford TE Has good size. Energetic and dynamic blocker.  Aggressive and powerful on his blocks. Lacks abit of quickness and the snap and short area movements. Lacks elite athleticism and speed. 4th Lacks the explosion at the snap and the short area quickness to become a reliable pass catcher in the NFL. Can be a possession and move the chain player that the Broncos need in subpackages. 5th – 6th
Allen Lazard Iowa State WR Has some very good speed for his size, very good concentration to make difficult catches. Lacks explosion and smoothness running. Rins really good routes for collegiate level. Lacks elite athleticism. 5th I really like his game, and even thought I think the Broncos prime athleticism in drafting I like his ability to be accurate, run good routes and be focused and having the concentration to help out the QB if the throw is to short or to low. I think he could be target asmid to low draft pick. 5th – 6th
Patrick Kugler Michigan OC Big ands strong, looks bigger that his listed weight. Still quite athletic for a guy of his size: runs well to the second level and looks to be fluid while doint it and with great agreession. CFA I think the Broncos could be interested in moving him to OG at the beginning since he has the size for it. 5th – 6th
Geron Christian Louisville OT Has good size, plays aggressive, lacks elite nible feet to move to the left side of the Oline but looks powerful and athletic enough to become a RT in the NFL. Will need time to adjust and play at the power and speed needed in the Pros. 4th He has some talent to play with and the aggression he shows could catch Broncos coaches eye. Might never become a Pro bowler but he could become a serviceable backup player and even starter if he’s willing to put in work to get his game at the level of NFL pass rushers, he has the talent. 5th – 6th
Keishawn Bierria Washington ILB Lacks a bit of size. Has great closing speed moves well around the field, as close as possible to sideline to sideline LB. Has some smooth feet that allows him to cover intermediate routes. Plays aggressive, at times a bit to much and led him to miss a tackle. 6th – 7th I like his aggressiveness and his speed on the field,. Played in a lot of zone coverage so that won0t count much in Broncos mainly man to man scheme bit he has athleticism and power to become at very least a good backup at ILB and a good special team player. 5th – 6th
Jordan Thomas
Mississippi State TE Great size. Very athletic for his size, has some good explosion but did not produce in college up to this physical measurement. Hasa ll the tool to be a better Pro Te than a college player. Needs to do a far better job at blocking. 5th – 6th Has a lot of potential. Could become a Pro Bowl player but he has to put himself at. I think the Broncos really need something at TE and could take a risk on um in mid to late rounds. 5th – 6th
Bo Scarbrough Alabama RB Big running back that has some good acceleration and has some good vision. Lacks elite athletic skills and could be limited because of his size. Not elusive, very powerful, can catch the ball out of the backfield. 4th – 5th If he falls a bit and is towards the end of the middle rounds and if the Broncos are in the mood of completely re-shape their backfield he’s he type of big powerful back they don’t have in the roster. He has to slide because for all reports Devontae Booker will continue to be the powerful back taking over CJ Anderson role (if he’ll be cut). 6th
Coleman Shelton Washington OC A little undersized but savvy player that plays always with leverage and knows what is going on. Aable to beat his opponent in anumber of ways, lacks elite power to be a unmovable pilone in pass protection. Runs well at the second level of the defender and place aggressive blocks to LBs. Lacks a bit of lateral movement but has good enough body balance. 7th – CFA Underrated, under the right scheme and coaching, and if he puts in the needed hard work, he could develop in a starting caliber C in the NFL. He can play, need to adapt his body to NFL requirement and to have the mentality to go and get it. I think the Broncos might have an eye on him, barrying injury and/or character concerns. 6th
Nic Shimonek
Texas Tech QB Has good enough size. Pocket passer that has the legs and the ability to keep on looking downfieldto be a good thrower on the move. Looks to have good arm strength and his ball comes out quick and with speed and very good touch. Looks to hit intermediate throws with ease. Questionable footsteps and throwing motion. Has good presence and awareness in the pocket. 6th I think Shimonek, even thought played in a passy happy scheme, looks very comfortable playing as a pocket passer, can makes a tons of throws, has to be still coached and has to learn to be a good QB but has some of the skills thgat cannot be coached. Lacks the kind of size that the Broncos usually like but looks good to me  for competing for the 3rd string QB and be developed into a reliable backup QB at very best. 6th
Scott Quessenberry
UCLA OC Has goos size for an interior Olineman but looks to lack the desire power and strength to be thow into starting competition in training camp. Ge could play G or C so there is some flexibility and has some athleticism to allow him to run quite smoothly out to the sencond levek and block his assignment. Will need to get bigger and stronger to become ore than a backup. 3rd – 4th I think he has some of the skills that Matt paradis had when coming out of Boise, Paradis wasn’t look as the most powerful C prospect and needed one year of practice squad to get his body type ready for the NFL. Quessenberry could look the same to the Broncos and might very well be targeted in the same draft area. 6th
DeQuinton Osborne Oklahoma State DL3T Big DT that has some quickness at the snap and very good lateral movement. Able to make plays at the LOS. Has some power but lacks elite athleticism. Aggressive would not provide much pass rush bit able to engage double teams and move well at the LOS. Lacks ideal height. CFA He could be a good developmental addition to the Broncos team at NT later in the draft. Really could become a gem if he’ll be able to put on the work and be very well conditioned and willing to leanr for Domata Peko. Powerful and with some agility could really become a good starter for the Broncos. 6th
Javon Wims Georgia WR Very good blocker. Has some quickness to turn teh corner for his size. Will need to gain 10 more pounds and beef up a bit to be able to absorbe NFL hits. Has some drops. Looks to be strong and be able to run out and inside routes. 6th Looks like a possession WR that has some athletic skills to go along but makes some mental mistakes and have some easy drops. All in all the Broncos could really look at him if he’s still on the board in the 6th round because of his size and athletic skills. A poor man Brandon Marshall, could be teached and become a very useful depth WR. 6th
Taylor Hearn Clemson OG Good pulling G that has strength and some power but lacks explosiona nd quickness. Not very sudden, able to reach his assignment but a bit lethargic at times engaging the block and not overly aggressive. Does not have very smooth feet to be a mainstay in the pass protection in the NFL. Has good size for a interior Olineman. 6th His size is on board with what the Broncos look for. Does not have the highest potential IMO and will need a bit of time to learn to plat at the NFL speed. Lacks some athleticism that could help him early on as a Pro but looks to have the strength and power required to have a shot at becoming a starter in the NFL under the right scheme and the right coaching. 6th
Jake Roh Boise State TE Lacks ideal size at the position but looks to be a fighter  and a smart blocker. Lacks elite speed and explosiveness but is able to read defences, run complicated routes and break open to move the chains. 7th – CFA His size could be a big concern because he’s not fast and quick has required to be a slot or 4th WR or big enoug to be a TE or possession WR. Still he makes underrated big plays when needed, is able to understand defenses and make complicate adjustments in his route running. I would like the Broncos to look at him and I think that creative offense will start looking at him at the end of the mid rounds. 6th
Will Richardson NC State OT Great size. Has quite solid footwork for a RT. Has also the power to move inside at the NFL level but his size will gain hi chances to prove that he could develop into a RT. I think he’s a bit overlooked by national medias now, he really has the size a some very good talent to play OT in the NFL watching him on tape. Lacks elite positional quickness and athletic skills that would make him an early pick and a LT in college but looks to have enough footwork and very good power to be developed at RT in the NFL. 5th I can see the Broncos trying to get somebody to develop into a reliable RT under the free agent RT that had come in the past years. He could be that guy. 6th
Greg Gilmore LSU DT Looks bigger that his listing. Has very good quickness at the snap and is able to create havoc in the backfield. Always giving his best effort: blue collar dlineman. 7th – CFA I like that he’s a bit underrated as pass rusher and is not the stoutest of Dlinemen. Still I think the Broncos are looking for NT with this skills and they are looking to develop them as they tried with Kilgo. So 6th round for Gilmore too, un my opinion. 6th
Bilal Nichols Delaware NT Great size, has some good body balance and lateral movement. Has strength lacks elite power to consistently push back Olinemen. Lacks explosion and speed to be a pass rusher at the NFL level. Great pursuer, keep on targeting the ball carrier until the whistle. 5th Played at a lesser level of competition. Two downs Dlinemen that brings strength and size to the Dline and could use a year to learn under Domata Peko. If the Broncos like him, they won’t udse anything more than a late round pick because history¡ically is where they might look at two downs Dlinemen under Elway. 6th – 7th
Dylan Cantrell Texas Tech WR Great size and wide shoulders. Possession WR that has good hands and block very well at the LOS and downfield for collegaiate level. Lacks elite explosion and speed. Has enough quickness after the catch to be able to gets som extra yards. Lacks elite athleticism, though has some and able to run basic crossing routes and also go routes on the outside against smaller CBs. 5th Possession WR that looks solid and has tools for playing and contributing on sundays. Will need to add a bit of strength to keep on with his game in the NFL but looks solid in what he does, knowing that he’s not  a Demaryous Thomas replacement by any stretch. 6th – 7th
Trevon Young Louisville OLB Has very good size for both 4-3 DE and 3-4 OLB- he played DE in college but looks to be able to play the run as 3-4 OLB and containing the edge. Has some quickness and can get through Olinemen especially on the inside. Lacks explosion at the snap and elite speed and lateral movement to be a consistent pass rusher as OLB and coverage is a big question. Lacks elite athletic skills. 7th – CFA Very productive player in college, always around the ball. His skills are a little bit less suited for the pros since he lacks elite athleticism and explosiveness at the snap. Still he could be used in rotation. 6th – 7th
Darius James Auburn OG Big, not the most athletic Olineman in the draft, may be better suited to move to OG trying to make his way into the NFL. Played OG at Taxes before to transfer to Auburn, played RT at Auburn in 2017.  Lacks explosion at the snap but looks to be solid in the running game. Looks powerful but looks to have room to getting more and better core strenght. CFA He will definetely be tries as OG in the NFL and will receive some deep look because his body type and stranght that he could develop I think he has been underevaluated by the media at the moment he has all the looks of a mid to late round pick: size, strength and potential under the right scheme. Will need a couple of years of development so I would think the Broncos could go after him as OG in the 6th round. I think he plays with a nasty streak and is something the Broncos are trying to build upon on the Oline. 6th – 7th
Erick Wren Oklahoma OC Undesrized Olineman that move quickly and is able to place a block in the run maintaining his leverage. Takes very good angles on blocking, very agile able to move away bigger and powerful interior Dlinemen. CFA Well underrated, if the Broncos are looking for a backup C that could take over in case of need in one or two years, here it is. Undersized but very capable of learning a way to be succesful in the right scheme. 6th – 7th
Rick Leonard Florida State OT Very good size. Does not do a bad job in pass protection when able to lower down his body and put his hands on the defender. Has good enough feet to be a OT in the NFL, could have problems with speed rushers and with explosive power rushers. Will need to get better core power and learn to play at the NFL speed. CFA The Broncos just traded for Valdheer but will need to find some real prospect to develop into tomorrow starter. I really think that Leonard ceiling isn’t the highest but with a bit more of power and under the right tuition he could become  avery solid RT in the NFL given his size and his feet. 6th – 7th
Rico Gafford
Wyoming CB Lacks size for NFL standards. Has quickness and reactive at the LOS, very good awareness. Has speed and athletic skills to run with the receivers crossing, seam and outside routs. CFA He can play. Could play coverage inspecial teams and could gain a roster spot as dime CB. I think he is underrated at the moment, it could not shock me if by the 6th round a team would select him. 6th – 7th
Mason Hampton Boise State OC Lacks ideal size. Looks to be very athletic and able to run downfield following the runner to make a block if necessary. Has some unexpected strenght and anchor well facing bigger and more powerful interior Dlinemen. Plays aggressive CFA I like his aggressiveness, I like to look around a long run and see him around the ball carrier as he run upfield looking for placing blocks. Athletic and undesized look familiar to the Broncos at Oline. I’m not sure it is the way they’ll go with this set of coaches but Hampton is definetely underrated and  can play football. 6th – 7th
Nyles Morgan Notre Dame ILB Has average size. Shows good burnst and acceleration in pursue of the ball carrier. Always around the ball, has instinct but lacks a bit of quickness and elite athleticism. Still has great pursue and very good closing speed to tackle in open field. CFA Leader of his team defense, great effort and pursue, a prospect that may lacks the athleticism and smoothness to cover RB out of the backfield and size to be effective against NFL Tes but that could contribute inspecial teams and could develop into the two downs run stuffer and provide some kind of good enough depth at the position. 6th – 7th
Stacy Thomas Louisville ILB Did have a worse senior that junior year, entered teh 2017 season with great expectations. Has good speed but lacks true explosiveness at the snap. Played coverage unit in special teams. Has some very good instinct in run support CFA Lacks a bit of elite athleticisma and latera movement are a bit in question too but still brings quite enough in the table to not be tough as a developmental ILB that could eventually bring good enough depth and special team player. 6th – 7th
Jermaine Carter Jr. Maryland ILB Not invited at the combine. Great vertical jump andinteresting 40 time at his Pro Day. Explosive at the snap. Very good speed going North – South.Has some quickness. Lacks elite athleticism and can improve lateral movements. CFA Lacks a bit of size and might be a two downs player only but would be immediately a good backup for the Broncos if he can play special teams. A late round pick for a position where the Broncos are a bit short of personnel at the moment. 6th – 7th
Evan Berry WR Good Kick returner prospect. Mainly kick returner at Tennessee. Has great acceleration and progression and strength. Not really quick and explosive but smooth. Started college career at CB. Good body balance and some good vision with he ball in his hands. CFA Had an injury filled 2017 season and maybe something more than injuries. Playes just an handful of games. If the Broncos are ok with his character he could be a very good kick returner in the NFL and maybe be also developed as part-time WR. 6th – 7th
Dee Delaney Miami (FL) SS Very good size, quite fast coming down in run support, throw his body on the ball carrier, nas some short area quickness and laterl movement. Too many wiffed tackles because does not use his arms the right way, too many body tackles attempts. CFA Very interesting prospect that played at The Citadel and then transferred as graduate to Miami (FL). I think the Broncos might like his athleticism and aggressive style of play and although he has ome tackling issue, they could try to fix it as he spend an year in practice squad. Played CB in college but might be better suited as SS in the NFL. 6th – 7th
Joe Brown Western Kentucky CB Lacks ideal size. Very aggressive and powerful, Has some very good athleticism. Quick and aggressive in run support, able to shed bloks from WRs and get the tackles on the perimeter. CFA Interesting prospcte that raised attention with a great Pro Day performance and that his film validate. Underrated, has only size concerns but its’m more than worthy and shot at the end of the draft. 6th – 7th
Nacarius Fant Western Kentucky WR Had a terribel Pro Day by numbers but still looks like a football player. Has some very respectable short area quickness, some reliable hands and run ok routes. Has a ot of football field presence and made a lots aof plays at the level of comeptition he played. CFA Could be interesting to bring him to training camp and see what he can do as special teamer and 4th receiver. Looks way bigger than his actual listing. 6th – 7th
Tyler Conklin Central Michigan TE Lacks abit of height but looks big and stout. Very good pass catcher, plays with nastyness, gritty and very focused on what he’s doing. Used very well his big body and shows very good athletic skills to make catches. Lacks explosion after the catch and burnst at the LOS. Lacks elite speed but has some good one to play inside routes. need to do a better job at blocking. 5th – 6th Possession TE that has to do a better job at blocking. He could hav e alate round for the Broncos. 6th – 7th
Chris Hawkins USC FS Lacks size for the modern NFL S but has very good acceleration and is athletic enough to make tackles. Fifth year senior, team captain and rumored to have a great football mind, he has some explosion to be used in blitzes and has some speed to pair that. Like to deliver blows but will need to get bigger and more powerful in the NFL. CFA 7th
Darius Curry Oklahoma State CB Has good size, does a good enough job in coverage, quite sticky but lacks elite speed and explosion. Less effective against the run, at times takes bad angles and has some missed tackles, has good instinct but not as powerful tackling as his listed size would indicate. CFA The lacks of elite athleticism and speed will hinder his draft status. He’s a good foorball player that could be brought to training camp to compete for a practice squad spot and learn how to play at the speed of NFL for one year and meanwhile see what he really could bring in therms of depth at the nickel position. 7th
Eric Cotton Stanford TE Ruptured Achilles in July 2017. Played DE and TE for Stanford and made plays at both position. Not the flashiest player but has the speed and athletic skills to be an occasional pass rusher from the 3-4 DE position and has also great body balance and good understanding of defenses to be able to get open from coverage although he’s not the most explosive receiver, able to use well his size to shied the ball. Able to use his power to place some block. CFA I can see him becoming a good all around E for a time that is able to wait and develop him through the next two years. I would throw a late round pick on him. 7th
Justin Lea Jacksonville St OG Walter Camp FCS All American team as freshman and senior. In pass protection does a fairly good job bending his knee and stay low reaching with his hands defenders chests, will nedd to get stronger and more powerful. Lacks a bit of body control and gaining core strength it could help on thi matter. Lacks good footwork and will have to get better thare. lacks elite athleticism and a bit of size for NFL standards. CFA Had a very good career at Jacksonville State and in games against bigger universities did a fairly good job. Has some holes that can be fix more or less. If he has the mind for and the will to work he could be developed in at least a good backup at OG and OC on this Broncos team. He would be a very good candidate for practice squad. 7th
Ryan Nall Oregon State RB Great size, has some explosion and good burnst hitting the all. Has some good vision and power. Has nice change of direction skills for a RB of his size. Lacks elite speed and athleticism. Can catch some out of the backfield and can block some although for his size he can get better. Has some issue securing the ball and is a bit impatient as a runner, may try to run where the hole is not there yet. CFA Underrated runner that can be be a three downs RB although in the NFL he’ll be a inside the tackles runner.  The fumbling issue and his being to impatient with the ball would make several teams think that he’s only a FB at the next level meanwhile he could be much more 7th
Levi Wallace Alabama CB Not the biggest CB propesct but is quick and fast to recover and cover the receiver. Will need to get stronger and more powerful. 7th He could become a very good nickel CB if he’ll be able to become a bit bigger keeping his change of direction skill. I don’t think he could be able to play on the outside on Denver scheme because he lacks the physicality to be very aggressive. Mid-rounder if Denver will go at nickel corner and will decide to select Alabama prospects. UPDATE: terrible time in 40 yard dash at the combine. Lowered his draft stock for Broncos (who appreciate speed in draftees but football skills in undrfated to 7th – CFA from my original 4th – 5th round grade 7th – CFA
Stephen Roberts Auburn S Light and not the biggest S in the draft. Shows good instincts to make tackles in open field and played gunner as special teamer. Did a lot of things in his senior year at college: from playing defense at playing gunner and kick returner. As some good speed, instincts, knows how to play his opponent and shows to knows how to make some good open field tackles. CFA Interesting prospect that knows how to play special teams. Has some experience playing on defense too and looks to be around the ball quite a bit in important moments. 7th – CFA
Chris Worley Ohio State ILB Has average size for the position and looks very spot on the play. Lacks elite athletic skills, explosion and change of direction. Looks to be set to be a run stuffer and will have issue in mana to man coverage, more suited to zone system were with game preps could let his football skills help him. Core special team player. CFA I think that from a linebacker point of view he could at best be a backup for the Broncos. Thought he has been captain and shows blue collar will and football acumen, his athletic skills are not elite as the Broncos looks to like. Has better size and could get a bit bigger that actual Broncos ILB but what could interest the Broncos is his special teams experience and capabilities. 7th – CFA
Marcus Baugh Ohio State TE Blocking TE that has good size and looks powerful enough to get a shot in training camp. Has good footwork and is capable to place blocks when aligned at the LOS or coming from the HB position in the run. CFA The Broncos need to find a new blocking TE that can contribute without breaking the bank. A low draft pick or a CFA addition could be perfect and just what the doctor ordered.Baugh looks good in size and in tape for this particular need, will need ttime to get ready for NFL speed and power and could spend a yesr in practice squad. It would be a very good pick up, IMO. 7th – CFA
Grant Haley
Penn State CB Lack size for the NFL level but is thick and looks powerful tackling.  Looks to be able to position himself well to make a play. Lacks elite atheltic skills and end speed to cover NFL WRs on the outroutes. Looks more confirmtable when facing the play instead of pursuing the ball carrier. Has experience on playing in special teams. 5th – 6th He’s an interestesting prospect because he does not junp out a lot from watching Penn State games but he’s there to make one or two plays that could change the game. Also QBs looked more to challenge Cambell than Haley. I think he could be an interesting pick late in the draft for the Broncos if they’re willing to look past his size. 7th – CFA
Shun Johnson Colorado St CB Will need to gain a bit of weigth, plays very aggressive, is able to follow receivers over the middle and make plays to the ball. Aggressive and good tackler in run support. Lacks elite athleticism but a very good football player. CFA Very aggressive CB that looks to be sticky and is not afraid to go against big WR or over the middle in man tro man coverage. Able to create havoc and turnover in run coverage. Looks to be a football player that lacks elite speed and quickness but still very useful as backup once he’ll get used to NFL speed and power. 7th – CFA
Nick Watkins Notre Dame CB Has good size and looks to be able to stick to quick receivers and tackle soon after the catch. Miss some open field tackles. Physical CB that runs smooth in coverage and is fearless at the LOS. CFA He has goos size, not great in nowadays NFL but plays aggressive and can cover some. At cery least he could be try to see how he perform in special teams and provide some insurance depth at CB or S. Some versatility. 7th – CFA
Eric Gallo VA Tech OC Lack ideal height for C in the NFL. Stout pass blocker can handle one on one with bigger Interior Dlinemen trying to overpowering him, has good anchoring and quite good athleticism. CFA He’ll have to prove that is worth to be kept one year in practice squad, providing depth, while he’ll adjust to NFL speed. He has interesting power and good body balance that makes him worth a deep look in training camp. 7th – CFA
Evan Brown SMU OC Lacks ideal size and lacks a explosion at the snap and body balance to re-organize the block against quick lateral movemnt but shows interesting footwork taht enables him to stay on top of the assignment. Lacks a bit of awareness when has to react to defensive players and when at the second level of the defense. CFA Lacks a bit of size and is not either overly explosive nor aggressive. Looks powerful enough and having good footwork he looks like developmental material and practice squad condidate to see if he can develop his game. 7th – CFA
Tyler Howell Missouri OT Huge size, lacks elite athleticism but does a good job bending his knees and keeping body balance. Not very comfortable running around although the most of times he does his job and gets to his assignment. Very powerful. Does have to learn to place his hands better while blocking to be able to maintain the block until teh end of the play. CFA His size will not go unnoticed. I think he’ll get drafted towards the end of the 3rd day. The Broncos may have a priority CFA grade on him and I thik it is a preatty fair grade. I think he could be one of those players that could do better in the NFL than in college, his size will be just big in the NFL not gigantic and he has enough footwork skills tom play RT in the NFL. If he could get a bit more core power to be able to get body balance when he re-set for a block he could become a starter at RT even with his lack of elite athletic skills. 7th – CFA
Jakob Johnson TE Lacks a bit of size but able to place nice blocks at the LOS. Really energetic blocker and willing to follow downfield the ball carrier to keep on blocking. CFA Lacks a bit of heigth but very aggressive on the block. If he could bring something in the special team department and could be inserted in some subpackage as receiver, he could develop in a commodity for the Broncos if they are willing to invest one year or two on him. 7th – CFA
Caleb Bailey Western Michigan OLB Lacks ideal size but has strength and explosiveness. Has some good isntincts in defending the run. Aggressive player. Has some good movement in coverage in the short and intermediate range. Has some good athleticism. CFA Looks like teh kind of developmental and undersized prospects the Broncos like to bring in and stick to the 53 men roster. Has some very good instinct against the run and can do good things in pass coverage because of some athleticism. Has some, though not elite, speed and acceleration towards the ball carrier. 7th – CFA
Dorance Armstrong Kansas OLB Played DE in college but has the bodytype and skills to play 3-4 OLB only in  the NFL. Has some quick first steps but lacks the power and streght to shed OT blocks, Lacks short area quickness to change direction suddel¡nly and breat the Olineman. Great pursuer, has very good straigth speed. 4th – 5th I think the Broncis could like him at OLB. He jsu would be a developmental player at the position but if he puts the work in he could develop into a solid backup at the posiiton. CFA
Mark Walton Miami (FL) RB Has good size, lacks abit of explosion with the ball on his hands. Has very good lateral movement and speed that allows him to create time to find the hole. Able to make one cut and go, has quite good body balance and can accelerate some when hitting the hokle 4th Interesting prospect that lacks elite speed and explosion and come to the draft adter ending his college season injured and did not perform in combine and Pro Day. CFA
Colby Gossett Appalachian State OG Has great size for interior Olineman, some very good explosion at the snap and plays with an aggressive streak. Does a good job bending his knees while blocking the opponent maintaining so good body balance. Not quick or fast running to the second level of defenders tomplace block, not really comfortable running. Lacks elite quickness. 5th Interesting prospect that played at lesser level of competition but that shows some very good skills. Unfortunately the Broncos really prize athletic skills for drafting so I guess that although they may have interest in him, they could have priority undrafted free agent grade. CFA
D.J. Reed Kansas State CB Lacks a bit of size for NFL standard at CB but has very good leaping skills and very goos athleticism. Played man to man in college, has some good speed. Because of his size he’s not the most physical Cb in the draft. Not very strong for NFL standards. 5th – 6th I think the Broncos could be interested on him but as priority college free agent becaue of his size. He does not show on film overwhelming explosion and athletic skills to make uo in his size limitation and convince Denver Fo that he’s worth a mid round pick. CFA
Chase Litton Marshall QB Has very good size, pocket passer that has some arm strength and can make long throws. The ball come out a bit with a lack of speed from his hands and is quite slow in the air. Has quite a quick release in RPO and has some pocket awareness. Can scramble if necessary and is able to throw o the run. 5th – 6th I think he has the skillset to develop into a solid backup, Lacks elite athleticism and elite arm strength. Accuracy on intermediate and deep throw is not great at times. I think that the Broncos could bring him in at training ca,p to compete with Chad Kelly for the third dtring QB. CFA
Kentavius Street NC State DT Have the size of a powerful 4-3 DE and the body of a 4-3 DT. Lacks height and size to be a perfect fit for a 3-4 Dline. Has some power and some burst at the snap but lacks elite explosiveness to be a consistent pass rusher in the NFL. Lacks a bit of size to be domeinant in the run defense too. Relentless pursuer. 4th Had a great show at the combine when run a speedy 40 yard dash. Injured a knee during a visit to the Giants. If it’s a ruptered ACL he’ll skip his entire rookie season. It’s very unluky for a draft prospect that is still to make a dime on his football career. Actually this could be the good chance for a team to pick him up at the end of the draft and then training him into the position for a year or two. CFA
Travin Howard TCU ILB Lacks ideal size, has good awareness and looks athletic enough. CFA The Broncos love atheltic and aggressive LB that migh bulk up or ebnd up being nickel LB. He’s a good one. CFA
Christopher Herndon Miami (FL) TE Injured MCL during the season and it required surgery. Injury concerns. Has some quite acceptable blocking skills, looks to have good sizxe and have a thick body. Lacks elite athleticism and speed. Possession TE that can block some and can make a catch in short or intermediate level. 4th I think the Broncos are looking for Tes to improve the talent on the roster. Herndon has some injury concern and Denver already has Butt coming out a knee injury amd missing the entire 2017 season. I don’t think that the Broncos would risk a draft pick this year. Different thing is if Herndon would go undrafted, that now one week before the darft does not look quite probable. CFA
Christian LaCouture LSU DE Has good size. Has presence and occupy lanes. Does not bring much in terms of pass rushing. Able to anchor well for college level but will have to get a better core power and body balance in the NFL in order to see the field and be effective in the running defense. 7th – CFA Has good size and looks to be a smart player. Could provide some depth from the practice squad. CFA
Van Smith Clemson S Lacks a bit of size for modern S. Hag good tackling technique in open field. Not explosive over the field and could be more aggressive coming to the ball carrier. Has good coverage skills when can face the ball. Shows some athletic skills and some acceleration. 7th I think the Broncos are quite loaded with good talent to grow but if he’d end up undrafted they couldvery well bring him to camp to see if he could be useful. CFA
Olasunkanmi Adeniyi Toledo OLB Not a great 40 yards dash at the Combine. Has some quick first steps after the snaps. Lacks elite speed out of the corner.Very aggressive. 7th A prospect that the Brobcos migh be interested to bring to training camp and see how he compete. CFA
Justin Jackson Northwestern RB Has good enough size, very shifty and has very good vision. Lacks explosion but has some good acceleration and top end speed. Has some power and energy. 5th An interesting runner that can run between the tacjles and has great vision. Couod be interesting to bring him to training camp to see if he could turn some heads. CFA
Shaun Dion Hamilton Alabama ILB njured his right knee twice in the last two years: ACL in broken kneecap. Undersized he looks more as a S than a LB in the NFL. He has some quickness and read and react fast. Has some soeed to pursue downfield the ball carrier and plays aggresive at the against the run. Quick to cover his gap. 7th – CFA Hif he’d go undrafted, I think he’s the kind of undersized but athletic and aggressive ILB that the Broncos looks to love. Could play some special teams and be developed: he’ll need to get bigger and get use to NFL power. CFA
De’Asian Richardson Louisville DL1T Big size. Has some sperk and quickness in his game. Could be a good run stuffer under the right scheme and has also some flashes at pass rusher. Lacks elite athleticism and explosiveness at the snap.Lacks elite power ans strength. CFA I think he lacks the athleticism and or power the Broncos looks at the NT position. He will have to spend some time in practice squad and even with a great size he’lll have to have the will to change his body and game to be able to play in the NFL. CFA
Ray Ray McCloud Clemson WR Punt Returner. Quick cutting in open field and able to accelerate. Played also CB in college. Looks to be solid cathcing the football too. 7th – CFA TO be brought in to compete for punt returner and depth at WR3 position especially if able to play some slot position. CFA
Ethan Wolf Tennessee TE Great size and has the potential to become more powerful. Mainly blocking TE with some athleticism but looks less stronger than wha¡t his size suggest. Lacks the speed and the explosiveness to be a reliable target in the passing game in the NFL. 7th – CFA The Broncos are looking for a blocking TE and meanwhile he’s not a plug and play prospect, he could be developed into a regular contributor including maybe a year in practice squad. CFA
Parker Cothren Penn State NT Has very good size and anchor well at the LOS. Keep fighting his way into the ball carrier algo when being pushed back from teh Olineman. Not easy to be out of the play. Lacks explosion at the snap to be a pass rusher. Has the frame to add muscle, has great lower body strength and long arms. 7th Better suited to play NT or DE in a 3-4 Defense where in running plays he could be plugged in at both positions. Lacks explosion and athletic skills to be a factir in the pass rush. Two downs player that looks very good in what he can do, unflashy but consistent. CFA
Khalid Hill Michigan FB Huge size for a runner, has a tons of power. Great size. 7th If the Broncos are looking to have a FB position on the roster, he could be brought to training camp to compete with Janovich for that roster spot. CFA
Eddy Pineiro Florida PK Great leg, powerful and accurate. 5th If he goes undrafted he could be brought in to challenge Mcmanus that had a subpar 2017 season. CFA
Phillip Lindsay Colorado RB Lacks a bit of size for NFL liking. Still has a dinamo when he could let his legs go. Can catch out of the backfiels. Has quickness ans burnst hitting the hole a ball carrier. Lacks some strength and power and will need to get bigger to absorb FL hits. Has some patience as a runner. Does not break many tackles and yards after first contact won’t be a big umber for him in the NFL. Has great closing speed and incredible acceleration. 7th – CFA His lacks od size and strength related to hinders his potential at he next level. It does not mean that with hard worj he could not become a good player in the NFL, it just means that most probably or a team ge enamored with him or he’ll go undrfated. AN d the Broncos may be just waiting for that to happen to make their move at him. CFA
Darrel Williams LSU RB Has very good size and has some very good explosion when hitting the hole. Stout runner that is able to breal tackles with his power running style. 7th – CFA Good running bak that can catch out of the backfield and can surprise with blockings. Does not have any elite element of his game or skills but when given a chance has been pretty good and solid. Would be a nice competition and depth addition to the incumbent player at the position. CFA
Jack Cichy Wisconsin ILB Did not play in 2017 because knee injury in August. Did not play in the last year and half of his college career. 5th – 6th Even if he’s mediacally cleared by the Broncos staff, I don’t think this year the Broncos would draft a prospect that history of big injuries. If he goes undrafted he may be targeted because the upside and the need of quality backups at the position on the roster. CFA
Skai Moore South Carolina ILB Has good size, will need to bulk up in the NFL. Has good tackling technique, takes right angles. Lacks explosion and some aggressiveness. Has some athleticism but it does nit scomes up in gamefilm. 5th The Broncos will be interested in his athleticism, but he lacks exlosion and some speed to. Not very able to shed blocks. CFA
Kendal Vickers Tennessee DE Has some quickness at the snap, very aggressive. Good job with his hands not letting Olinemen to put theirs on him, great pursuer, run afte rthe ball until the whistle and everywhere in the field. CFA Lacks size for a 3-4 DE on Broncos standards but Vickers bring tons of experience and looks like a football player that would never give up. CFA
Jason Cabinda Penn State ILB Prototypical 4-3 MLB that lacks elite quickness and athletic skills. Lacks speed and elite athletic skills to be able of sideline to sideline LB, still very aggressive and nasty at tackling. Thick body. Lacks speed. 6th Played a lot in college and has been very productive. In the right scheme with the right role he could show the football player he looks to be. CFA
Troy Apke Penn State FS Quick to get to the ball in coverage and in run support. Has more problems in coverage and at time in his tackling angles. Great straight speed. Great size but will have to bulk up a bit to be able to deliver blows in the NFL covering Tes. Made a tons of plays at penn  State but will definetely will have to adapt to NFL power. 4th – 5th His speed and quickness if paired with becoming stronger and more powerful could meke him the dime DB in the NFL. Will need time to ger ready physically and mentally to the NFL speed and power, could be a good chice for glooming in the practice squad. I don’t think he could be a S in the NFL. CFA
Curtis Cothran Penn State DE Great size and srenght. Not explosive but has some flashes out of the snap. CFA He has the body type that the Broncos looks to like in their 3-4 DE. CFA
Austin Roberts UCLA TE Lacks size for a traditional TE, could be used as more of a HB, comng out of the backfield. Son of a NFL TE coach he has good technique and soli route running. Lacks elite athleticism but can catch the ball in stride. Will need to get bigger and more powerful. Does not seems very fluid running while carrying the ball. 5th TE position is very critical for the Broncos since a part redshirt Butt all the rest of the player are not really stars. The Broncos really have to improve the position and could look everywhere. Roberts size could trick him on draft day so maybe as CFA the Broncos could make a strong push at him as hybrid HB. CFA
Kenny Young UCLA ILB Lacks ideal size for a NFL ILB. Looks quite good in the north south game as run stuffer but will need to get stronge rand more powerful to not get pushed away by big and strong Olinemen. Does not have any elite lasterla movemento and change of directin, is fast running towards the LOS but looks slow and unconfortable in space. 6th – 7th A look as reserve at ILB and see if he can develop into a very good Special teamer. CFA
Josh Fatu USC NT Has good burnst and quick first steps after the snap. Look to be a better than average in athletic skills and could provide surprises and havoc in the backfield in passing game. A bit undersized, could be pushed around from bigger NFL Olinemen, He’d be a candidate at NT as CFA as usually the Broncos brings in one or two prospects for devlopment or a bit of depth in the practice squad. CFA
Steven Parker Oklahoma SS Leader of the Oklahoma defense. Looks thick and powerful, has some game speed. Also an aggressive special teams player. CFA I don’t see any reason why teh Broncos could not want to bring him in at training camp to compete for a roster spot if he drops undrafted. He’s aggressive, a team leader, experienced player that knows to play special teams to get a role on a 53 men squad. maybe he hasn’t the biggest upside. CFA
John Atkins Georgia DT Has very good size for a NFL NT. Moves well between blocks, lacks explosion and quickness to create havoc in the backfiled. Will need to get better core power and strength and use his feet better. CFA If the Broncos are looking to bring someone in for competing at backup NT he could be a very solid addition as CFA, if he goes undrafted. Looks to be strong and could get even stouter as two down Dlineman. Has good size for the position. CFA
Reggie Carter Georgia ILB Undersized for the position, has some speed and awareness. Aggressive and also a bit explosive. Lacks elite speed and athletic skills. CFA If he’d go undrafted he could be a prospect the Broncos could bring to training camp and let him compete for one of the backup ILB spots: he’s aggressive, has good instinct and could surprise. CFA
Malkom Parrish Georgia CB Lacks ideal size for NFL standards, quick and athletic, looks very fluid covering receivers in the middle of the field and also covering Tes much bigger than him. CFA Interestinc dynamic and athletick nickelback that could interest the Broncos as a CFA if they can overlook the size. CFA
Trey Marshall Florida State SS Very aggressive and powerful. Coverage is a bit of a question, more of a in the box S that hits hard. Special team player. 7th – CFA Because of his aggressiveness and special team experience he could be brough to camp to see if he can help. CFA
Ryan Carter Clemson CB Lacks size but playes very aggressive and has experience playing coverage in special teams. Can run well and change of direction is not bad at all. CFA Concerns because of his size and not very elite in explosion but very aggressive and good special team player. Because of his experience he coudls be brought to training camp to see if he can help in the coverage unit. CFA
Jalen Wilkerson Florida State OLB Lacks a bit of size to be a 3-4 DE. Looks better suited physically to be a RDE in the 4-3 allignment. CFA I like his size and I would like the Broncos to bring in some yound developmental talent at DE to build layers of players. He could stick around in the practice squad eventually. CFA
Ryan Cummings Wyoming OT Has ok size for OT in the NFL. Some heavy footwork and weak balance at times when bullrushed. Looks abit raw in blocking technique. Looks powerful in the run, does not look very comfortable running to reach the second level of defenders. CFA Lacks size for what the Broncos look at the OT position and usually Denver does not bring inside Olinemen on practice squad. He might need time to develop but looks to have the body type that would allow him to become more powerful, just not as aggressive in videos as Denver might look for a developmental inside Olineman, he’ll need to swith to OG in the NFL and with patience he could become a very valuable member of the Oline. Still all in all a nice player to bring to training camp for evaluating how long it could take for him to become a NFL OG. CFA
Drew Van Maanen Wyoming FB Good pass cathcher in open field. Lacks elite athletic skills and power to be a force at the LOS and be able to make defender miss when running with the ball. CFA He can block some but does not look as domenant as he could be. He could become a versitale special teams and offensive player if an innovative offense build some package plays where he could be used. CFA
Dalyn Dawkins Colorado St RB Lacks ideal size for NFL standard, will need to bulk up a bit. Has some quickness and is fast accelerating in open field. Owever does not have great speed. Has very good lower body power. Has quite good balance and is able to make defender miss in open field. Lacks elite explosiveness and speed. CFA Looks like a smaller version of CJ Anderson. I think the Broncos would need a change of pace style of RB. He could be brought to camp only in Anderson is traded or released. If CJ will be still on the team in time for training camp, I don’t see the Broncos bringing a smaller version of him to Dove Valley. CFA
Zack Golditch Colorado St OT MWC first team by coaches and media.  Lacks a bbit of size for the OT position in the NFL. Has quick burnst at the snap but also a bit slow with his feet. Lacks ideal balance to re-set his footwork. Able to settle in his position shows good core power to move around and out of the play the defender. Quite good positioning his hands and smart blocker. CFA I think that the Broncos like bigger OTs but he has enough to be considered a viable prospect. He has enough athleticism to be saw a developmental prospect and good enough to be evaluated in raining camp. He will need to become more powerful and stronger, will need to learn how to get better body balance by adding core power. CFA
Evan Colorito Colorado St OLB Lacks a bit of explosion at the snpa, pass rusher specialist in college, has good size but will need to bulk up a bit. Has good awareness and good acceleration to the ball carrier. Lateral movement is lacked a bit. CFA I think the Broncos are looking to find some backup material at OLB and Colorito is instate college product that made plays. Has good size and some very good football instinct. Lacks elite athleticism but looks like a student of the game. The Broncos could really look at bringing him at training camp to fight at very least for a practice squad spot. CFA
Detrich Clark Colorado St WR Dynamis smaller player that could play in the backfield or at the LOS. Quick first steps, lacks second gear and overall speed. Played kick off returns and shows acceleration hitting the hole. Lower center of balance helps him making sudden change of directions. CFA I would see the Broncos to bring him in training camp to compete for returning kick off and see what else they could get out of him. CFA
Trae Moxley Colorado St OG Very huge size, lacks elite athleticism and does not have very quick foot and cannot rebalance his body quick enough when caught off guard. Might have a better body type for OG in the NFL. Lacks elite power and strength but has the size to add core power. CFA He’s a developmental prospect that makes a lot of sense for the Broncos. Had experience at OT in college and the body type to be a big OG in the NFL bringing some versatility and making sense using practice squad spot for developing him and having him as backup in emerc¡gency. Will need to get more powerful and have more balance. CFA
Gabe Perez Boise State OLB Has good not great size, some speed but has great power. He can really bullrush as OLB in passing situations. CFA The Broncos could look to bering more developmental talent in and stocking the practice squad. It could be interesting to see what Perez could do in training camp. CFA
Jeromy Irwin Colorado OG Has good size and goos strength and power. Does a good job in the running game, lacks good footwork and some athleticism. Lacks the klateral movement and footwork to play consistent OT game in the NFL, better suited to move inside at OG. CFA Developmental project atht couls interest the Broncos as instate prospect that could develop into backup at OT and OG. CFA
Gerrad Kough Colorado OG Lacks ideal size at OG in the NFL. Has some good body balance and some strength and power with ehom he plays and looks almost nasty at times. In the passing blocks bend well enough. Lacks explosion at the snap and some athlewticism. CFA All in all an interesting prospect that is a bit underrated mayb ebecause the season Colorado had. Still he does not have a superhigh ceiling but could become a trustworthy backup at least if he puts in the hard work. CFA
Robert Foster Alabama WR Quick and posseses an incredible acceleration with the ball in his hands in open field. No evidence of route running understanding and a non factor in blocking 7th – CFA I can see Denver being interested on him as a returner because his speed and suddeness. He has great open field speed but struggle to find ways to get open running routes. CFA
Kamrin Moore Boston College CB Invite to combine, did not workout. At his pro day: very explosive, a bit too slow for CB, maybe better suited for FS in the NFL. Likes to gives big hits and plays quite aggressive. Has some good enough game speed. CFA Lacks a bit of size for today DB but I think the Broncos could be intrigued by his versatility as CB, FS and special teamer. They might try to get him in raining camp in order to evaluate him with more time. CFA
Noa Merritt Boston College DT Lacks ideal size and weigth but looks the part of a powerful NT that can hold the gound taking double teams and at times disrupt the block and create havoc in the backfield in running game. Nothing more than a two downs player that tries hard. Powerful. CFA The Broncos likes to look at potential NT in between CFA. He’ll need to add size but looks powerful and can play against double teams. Won’t provide steady rushes against the pass. CFA
Tony Adams NC State OG Undersized for playing OG in the NFL. Has good mobility, reach his assignment at the second level of the defense quite well and is able to put good blocks on the run. Looks very stout and anchor well against bigger and powerful pass rushers, been left on one on one he can neutralize the bull rushe quite easily. Aggressive in the running game, attacking the defender with a quick and powerfull streak. 7th I kind of like what he brings to the field. Very good football player that is aggressive and can overcome his lack of size. He’ll have to learn to play OC to find a spot in the NFL Oline. If he could he could become a very good starter on a team like the Broncos. CFA
Jerod Fernandez NC State ILB Lacks a bit of size but looks quite athletic and can cover some. Lacks elite power and eplosiveness but has some good accelerationa and speed in open field. Able to blitz well. Will need to become bigger. CFA Can be brought in at training camp to see if he can develop into a special teamer and a backup ILB early on on his career and see if he can beef up and play some coverage ILB a bit later on. CFA
Zykiesis Cannon Louisville FS Quick and aggressive coming down to the LOS to make a tackle. Lacks ideal heigth but shows a good body and explosiveness in north south run. CFA Lacks a bit of power and angle in tackling. Still aggresive player that could be brought to camp to see what he can bring as a special teamer too. CFA
Trumaine Washington Louisville CB Very good production in collge. Lacks ideal size and will need to bulk up a bit in he NFL. Runs smoothy and has good change of direction but lacks elite speed and explosiveness and aggression. CFA He0s a bit underrated now, also because he was playing opposite one of the best CB in college. Will have to become more physical, after adding some weight and still be solid in pass coverage. CFA
Malik Williams Louisville RB Has some good instinct at blocking in the backfield. Tall and thick RB, very though can breal tackles and will not give himself up after the first tackle. Has some very good power and strength, lacks elusiveness but has some speed to even run outside. CFA Complete old school RB. He will be drafted; he can block and he can run inside and outside. Is not a specialist in any of those runs: lacks elusiveness and top speed outside and lacks explosiveness to be a monster running between tackles but he bring balance and can block. I think he’s a bit too much as CJ Anderson and Booker to be drafted by the Broncos, but in case he slips to undrafted and even more if the Broncos trade or release CJ Anderson before or during the draft so I can really see them going big after Malik Williams: it would be a great addition. CFA
Deon Newsome VA Tech FS Very good gunner on special teams. Aggressive, has good enough size. Quick in coming down from the S position to make a tackle at the LOS and in open space. CFA If he’d fall undrafted he could be one of the Broncos top target. Looks all the parts of the aggressive and fast safety that they like to have in special teams and like to grow into a serviceable player CFA
Will Dissly Washington TE Great size. Blocking TE mainly, lacks a bit of footwork to have beter bpdy balance while engaging a block, Less powerful that suggested by his size. Lacks elite athleticism and explosion at the snap. Uses his size as advantage to defend the ball in the catching process, lacks suddeness and lateral movement to be an all around receiver. Will need to gain more core power to have better body balance in the NFL 6th – 7th If he’d go undrafted he could be targeted in order to participate in raining camp as blocking TE and see how he fares compared with the incumbent players. CFA
Ezekiel Turner Washington SS Played in a zone scheme based system in college. Has good size and looks athletic on the field. Really fast and quick coming down the field as a gunner in special teams coverage. CFA Interesting player that brings a lot of aggressiveness and some versatility. He could compete in training camp for a special team spot. CFA
Cody Oconnell Washington St OG Great size, has acceptable body balance for his size but lacks core power to balance well against inside pass rusher. Will need to gain lower body strength and learn how to use his size in his favour against explosive players at the snap. To easy to be pushed back from quick and strong inside pass rushers. 7th A big man with some oversize issues. Big developmental project that could be directed to RT if he could develop bbetter core power that could allow him to set better his body balance and be quickier in  movements. CFA
Tavares Martin Jr. Washington St WR Will have to put on some weight in the NFL. Able to understand where to position himself to break open. Lacks elite speed and explosion. Looks to have reliable enough hands and to be smooth in running. Has some athleticism and looks to be able to use his body to shield the defender from the ball in the catching process. CFA Lacks elite speed and athleticism, but has some reliability as pass catcher that will give him a chance to get drafted or at very least to become a priority CFA. It will depends on how Denver evaluate the backups already on the roster. CFA
Jamal Morrow Washington St RB Lacks a bit of size and explosion and suddeness running the ball to make up for his size. Average runner that has very soft hands and gain some elusiveness in open field. Special teams returner that is not an home run threat but is very dependable. CFA Serviceable returner and pass catcher RB. Might surprise in the right running scheme anf thrive as 3rd RB that takes over some designed run in some subpackage plays. To keep an eye on. CFA
Brandon Powell Florida WR Small but compactb and dynamic receiver. Has lower body balance that allows him to be very dynamic running with the ball. Able to run good routes that allows him to break open.  Punt returner. CFA Definetely a prospect that I think could be targeted if gone undrafted. A bit undersized but could come to training camp and compete for a specal team duty and see what he can bring as receiver. CFA
Anthony Rhone SMU ILB Lacks explosion at the snap and once blocked by a Olineman has issues desengaging from the block. Has some coverage skills. CFA Might be brought in training camp to see if he can cover a bit and might be a candidate for practice squad if so. CFA
LaKel Bass UTSA ILB Aggressive linebacker that lacks a bit of size and end speed. Has some athleticism but lacks a bit of explosion. Has good instinct. Need to be more powerful tackling and and overall a bit bigger. CFA I like the way he plays, might be just a two down linebacker but has some side to side ability and runs very smootly in pursuing. Aggressive. Maybe the Broncos could covet him as a CFA addition to check his real potential in raining camp. CFA
Mo Porter Baylor OT Quite underrated, played LT in 2017, has very good power and good body balance in the running game. Ablet o neutralize and move away the opponent while the plays is taking his way. Has very good size and look stout. Lacks elite athletic skills to play and footwork to play LT in the NFL but could be tested as RT or even moved inside at OG. CFA I do like what I see from him, underrated, has his limitation but with a positional change he could still develop into a serviceable Olineman. Really worth a look in training camp to see if he can make the transition to OG and bring some versatility. CFA
Peter Godber Rice OG Has good but not great size, looks to have some strength and power. Lacks elite athleticism and explosion at the snap. Not very smooth running to get to his assignment around the LOS or at the second level of the defense. Anchor quite well for college level in the passing game but lacks a it of body balance and quickness to be able face NFL quick and powerful inside pass rushers. CFA Might be brought to training camp to see if he brings any kind of versatility (OG-C) so that he could sneak in the practice squad and bring some depth while he’d be developing his game and body into NFL level. CFA
Peter Kalambayi Stanford OLB Has grea size and plays very aggressive.Has good but not great athleticism but lacks a bit of short area quickness. Has some explosion off the edge and some good acceleration. Lacks elite speed and athleticism. 7th I like his aggressive style of playing and his relentless pursuing. Has some good instinct too. Lacks the athleticism the Broncos like but I think that he could bring some depth in case no ultra athletic edge rusher would be selected in the first three rounds. CFA
Ben Niemann Iowa OLB Did not received invitation for the combine, tested quite well at his Pro Day drills. Does a good job at OLB to contain the run inside. In coverage played ore of a zone system hat could cover some lack of speed and short area quckness but shows his awareness and his familiarity with dropping down in coverage. Lacks elite athletic skills and explosion after changing direciton. CFA He has sexperience in playing OLB in college and has very good size. Lacks a bit of athletic skills that the Broncos always appreciate but could be brought to training camp to bring competition in bit OLB and as special teamer. CFA
Demetrius Cooper Michigan State OLB Great size for 3-4 OLB. Lacks elite speed and explosion but has some closing speed and power to be account of. 7th – CFA Maybe an invitation to training camp to see if he can bring something as depth at OLB CFA
Richard Lagow Indiana QB RPA style of QB in college. Has good size, will need to get bigger in order to absorbe NFL hits. Shows good accuracy in short and intermediate throws, has good touch on the ball but the ball comes up at times with not enough NFL speed. Lacks a bit of pocket presence when pressured. Has some scramble ability but in the NFL will be harder to escape from defenders. CFA Intriguing prospect that could be developed into a reliable backup QB and could bring fair competition for the 3rd string QB in training camp. He has the size that Elways like in QBs, lacks elite arm strength but has enough touch to be on Kubiak shortlist. CFA
Leon Jacobs Wisconsin OLB Lacks explosion at the snap, has some nice pass rushing moves in his repertoire but lacks elite speed to execute some of them in the NFL. Has good short area quickness and looks to be quite powerful and strong. Undersized to play DE in the NFL, playes very aggressive. 5th Lacks some explosion but have the quickness to turn the cornes as pass rusher. He’s strong and powerful. The Broncos are looking for more explosiveness, IMO, to add depth to OLB and for this reason they migh be more willing to go after him if he falls undrafted because of size concerns. CFA
Armanti Foreman Texas WR Has goos size and runs good enough routes but has drop issues. Has some athleticism and can play coming out of the backfield. Has some speed but lacks elite one and some good athleticism. CFA If he could avoid the mental lapses and use better his body in the reception phase he could be an alla around player with some playmakig skills. That is the key with him. Looks to be training camp material to see if he can bring something in route running and compete. CFA
Kingsley Opara Maryland DE Has average size for a 4-3 DE, a bit short for a prototypical 3-4 DE. Hs good quickness and plays aggressive. CFA Lacks size for what the Broncos likes to draft at DE but has the tools to be a player in the NFL if properly developed. CFA
Jashon Robertson OC Lacks ideal size and will need to become more powerful in order to move defenders out of the play in the NFL. Also has to take better blocking angles. The lack of body balance at times unsettle him on blocking in movement or when has to re-set for the block. When able to put the hands well on the defender does a great job keeping the block until the play is over.  Really able to place and do a great job in blocks while moveng or following the ball carrier downfield. CFA Undersized but looks very good when able to set the block and very beatable when he cannot. I think he has some potential so it could come down to if the Broncos are willing to consider undersized Olinemen. Has some versatility and could play some OG but his lack of size could play against him there even more. CFA
Trevor Darling Miami (FL) OG Has very good size for the position and plays quite aggressive. Looks to be willing to close the block out but at times lose his body balance on the move anc ould lose the the defender. CFA The Broncos look at Florida Oline prospect. He could provide some versatility with his size, could be proved at OT and OC. I can see the Broncos trying to get him as CFA. CFA
Sam Jones Arizona State OG Has great size for an interior Olineman. Does a good job reaching the second level of defender and closing out his blocking assignment in the running game. Has some footwork issue against pass rusher at times due to his footwork, not really able to re-set his feet against a quick double move by the pass-rusher. 7th He has good size and played in the close Colorado region. Does a good enough job in run protection but has way to go as pass protector. Might be in the short list of relatively close players to bring in at training camp to add depth and there he’ll have to impress. CFA
A.J. McCollum Arizona State OC Lacks ideal size fror the NFL. Does a good job on one on one against the NT in the running game, quite powerful and able to move them out of the play. Lacks elte athleticism and footwork to be dominating but still does a faily good job.Has some more issue in blocking on the move, looks to have not very long arms and not very fluid running laterally especially. CFA Has to prove that he could bring depth a multiple positions and lack size to play OG. Still he looks like a willing football player and could be brougth to training camp to see what he can do. CFA
Devin Farrior Southern Miss OC Has great size fot internal lineman, especially for OC. Has good core power athta helps hi boost a body balance that would be not the best witout. Moves so and so, not the most comfortable running. Hass ome good power and face quite well the Olinemen CFA One of these interior Olinemen that could be brought to camp for better evaluate what he can brng as OC and OG. CFA
Darius Jackson Jacksonville St OLB Lacks idel size to play DE in a 4-3 defenses, has good enough size to play OLB in the 3-4. Has some quickness at the snap and some explosion as pass rusher. Will need to get stronger and be effective against the run as edge defender in the NFL. Has some athleticism that might help him find his way in the NFL. 7th – CFA it all come down to how much time Denver coaches think he’ll need to learn to play OLB on a 3-4 fron in the NFL and how much time he’ll need to get as strong as required bu the position. I  case of positive answer to all the raised questions, he could be apractice squad candidate. CFA
Dylan Cline Jacksonville St OG Played RT at Jacksonville State. He’ll have to move to OG in the NFL. Has wide body and plays quite aggressive. Lacks a bit of footwork and a bit of athleticism. Shows good power in the running game and is able to reach teh second level of defenders and do a good job there. CFA Developmental prospect thata lacks weigth but looks to have the body type to get it. Worth a look on training camp. CFA
Reggie Hall Jacksonville St CB Explosive in his Pro Day. Not a great 40 yards dash but not horrible neither. Does a good job enough in coverage and has good athleticism. Has an aggressive style of play and played special teams. CFA Interesting prospect that played against lesser level of competition and shined at times. One of those prospect that the Broncos likes to take a fly on, if cleared by character and medial issues. CFA
Trenton Scott Grambling State OG Played LT at Grambling State, lacks footwork and some athleticism for the NFL at OT. Better suited to move to OG with his big body and power. Does not look very smooth running in open field but can reachg the second level of defenders and place a block. CFA Versatility and big body. Has some power lacks some old athleticism. But why not having him on a shortlist for training camp? CFA
Terry Swanson Toledo RB Lacks ideal size. Quite dynamic with his lower denter of gravity. Has some very good quickness and burnst in his first few steps. Lacks elite speed and explosion. Has quite good short area quickness and can make defender miss. 7th he can run a bit inside the tackles but the best of his game in the NFL in his young career could come as pass catcher a la Danny Woodhead. He’ll have to get bigger a bit and more powerful to absorb defenders hits and work on hi route running. CFA
Brant Weiss Toledo OT has great size and the wide body to get more weigth on. Lacks the power and the footwork to shield well againts inside power rushes. Has some athletic skills and quickness. Need to learn to bend his knee in pass protection and to use his size in the running game. CFA Very raw and lacks technique in protection. Still a developmental prospect that has a body type that would allow him to get bigger and more powerful. Has teh size and the athletic skills to play RT in the NFL, with a lot od work and a team that is able to develop raw talent. CFA
Jarvion Franklin Western Michigan RB Patient runner, has good size and hit the hole with burnst. Does a very good job in pass protection and can also catch the ball out of the backfield. Lacks elite speed and explosion but looks smooth running with the ball and has some athleticism. Inside the Tackles runner. 7th – CFA The Broncos have only two RB on their roster at the moment. Franklin could provde depth coming in at training camp and battling for a practice squad or even a 53 men roster spot. CFA
Tafon Mainsah Richmond CB Very athletic and explosive. Played at a lesser competition. Lacks ideal size, but plays big. Has some good speed and goos explosiveness. CFA he has all the attributes to be in the Broncos list for undrafted prospects that could light out, if he ends up undrfated. CFA
Deon Yelder Western Kentucky TE Big body receiver. Lacks abit of height but looks bigger than his listed numbers. Aggressive at the snaps, did a good job blocking at his level of competition. He can allign at the end of the Oline or spread as a WR or as HB in the backfield. Has some mental hiccups with assignment. Will need to raise his awareness in the NFL. 7th – CFA Aggressive TE that has some good blcoking skills and can cath passes. Run ok rountes but can learn more on that. Very interesting CFA addition, IMO. CFA
Jaryd Jones-Smith Pittsburgh OT Has big size and lacks bit of athleticism to feel comfortabke running down field to place a block. Lacks a bit of quickness at times is just a bit late to meet his assignment. Very powerful. Needs to improve his footwork to be an OT in the NFL. Might be better suited to play OG. In the passing game lacks a bit of body balance but could bend quite well when able to set his feet correctly. 7th – CFA He migh be an interesting developmental player for the Broncos because he has size and could bring versatility if he develop into a backup. Could be candidate for a year on the practice squad after training camp. CFA
Alex Officer Pittsburgh OC Played also OG in college, especially in his senior year. Big and powerful, moves quite well blocking in the passing game when able to put his hands on defender chest. Strong. Has some athletic skills.  Lacks elite quickness and explosion. CFA A bit underrated. Bring some versatility and size. Does a very nice job in pass protection might be a bit more dominant in the running game because of his size. I think the Broncos could be very interested in bringing him in to compete in training camp. CFA
Frank Ginda
San Jose State ILB Lacks ideal height for an ILB. Quick and fast in pressuring and run support. Very aggressive and has very good level of awareness. Lacks a bit of range moving arouund the field and in coverage but very reactive. Lacks short area quickness and lateral movement to able to shed blcoks form big Olinemen. 5th – 6th He laks the athletic skills the Broncos look for drafting. If he’d go undrafted (not so probable) Denver could taget him to let him compete for the 4th ILB spot on the roster in training camp. CFA
Arden Key LSU OLB Playmaker. Very quick at the snap, has initial explosion than then disappears in a hurry. Sloppy pursuit at times when he decides that he did not get out of his block in time. Very decisive when he thinks heps going to make the play. Lacks elite explosiveness but has a tons of pass rushing movement in his arsenal for being a college player. 2nd With Key it’s all depending on the take of the Broncos with his off the field red flags. I think this year the Broncos will try to stay “clean” and take only hard workers blue collar football player, so I guess he has been removed by their board. If not he’s a sure fire top 15 picks. No
Da’Ron Payne Alabama DL1T Lacks ideal size. Has been receiving double team attention the whole 2017 and still has been able to do some very good play. He looks very stout and powerful, not flachy enough to warrant top 20 selection. Eat upo space  at the LOS, could have some more potential that the one usually Alabama players have getting to the draft. 1st I just don’t think the Broncos will take a DT in the first two rounds of the 2018 draft.  It could be very interesting to see him on the Broncos Dline because I think he could become  avery very good penetrating NT in the NFL. Still the Broncos looks to like bigger Dlinemen and won’t use an high draft pick on 6’2” Alabama Dlineman. No
Marcell Ateman Oklahoma State WR Great size, lacks elite athleticism but has some speed and is able to create separation in out routes. Has good hands but lacks a bit of lateral movements. Great college skills at WR, may not be as productive in the Pros. 5th I think he has some similarity with Jordan Taylor but in strength and weak areas. This is he main reason why I think the Broncos should stay with Taylor, that has grown into a  ok r¡backup receiver tahn bring a rookie up that will need to adjust to NFL speed and power. No
Jeff Holland
Auburn OLB Lacks elite quickness at the snap that would help him get past OT in the pros. Consistent pass rusher that has very good frame and look bigger that his listed size. Always around the ball in important snaps. 3rd I think the Broncos should look at OLB pass rushers also in case they will retain the three they have but I don’t think Holland has the quickness Denver is looking for. He’s to me a true 4-3 DE. No
Ronnie Harrison Alabama S Great size and fearless against the run. Has some good instinct  for tackling in open field. Lack, IMO elite quickness and speed. Will need to bulk up a bit to be able to bring the aggressiveness he showcased in college. 1st – 2nd Great size and aggressiveness. Lacks a bit of coverage skills to be the kind of player the Broncos are looking for at S. No
Kerryon Johnson Auburn RB Tall RB that can do quite a bit of things from running both inside and outside, showcasing very good acceleration, to play the wild cat with very good results and blocking for his QB. Will need to get stronger and may have some shoulder issue to be take in count. Not the most explosive RB to hit the LOS but patient and able to find his opportunity. Has some pass catching skills coming out of the backfield. 2nd He’s not the change of pace RB that Denver desperatly need to pair with their  power runningbacks. No
Rasheem Green USC DE Has great size and the body type that will allow him to get even bigger in the NFL. Lacks the explosion at the snap and tegh quickness to get past the Olinemen. Lacks the lower body power to maintain his position in running defense and the short area quickness to move around the LO and create havoc. 2nd A bit overhyped in my opinio. Has all the physical tools to be a dominant player, but he wasn’t in college in the Pac 12. Therefor I think the Broncos, with not  big needs at Dline, to not rush into his size and potential. No
Auden Tate Florida State WR Great size and lenght but lacks mental aspect to be a consistent receiver in the NFL. Some drops are due to the fact that he is unable to use his body to make the catch. Not the most athletic WR. Moves well in space and his able to let his size be felt but lacks smoothness at the ball. 7th Lacks the speed and explosion to create space with NFL DB. Also lack athleticism to make consistent catches in traffic using his body to shield defenders and get to the ball. No
Deon Cain
Clemson WR Has OK size and looks a bit thin. Looks to have soft hands and has some athleticism to work with and able to use his body to protect he catch. Lacks elite quickness at the snap and in cuts to break open consistently. 2nd – 3rd He did not have  a good passer QB in 2017. Still did not show up big in game and did not dominate collge ranks. Has good but not great size and looks very erratic at times: has very good athletic skills but is inconsistent with his hands and at times not able to break free as supposed too by his talent. No
M.J. Stewart
North Carolina CB Has goos size but lacka abit of power, toeasily moved out of the play by blockers. Lacks short area quickness. Has good speed and balance but laks elite athleticism. Very aggressive at tackling but is not going to put a tackle on on whatever play. 3rd I think he lacks a bit of aggressio and athleticism, plus elite speed for the Broncos to really like him. Always close to the receiver but the receiver too many times come away with the ball. No
Hayden Hurst South Carolina TE Great size and presence. Runs smoothly routs and carries the ball comfortably given his size. Ok in run blocking, could do better with his size. Does much better in pass blcoking especially when alligned as HB. Not really a willing blocker downfield. 2nd He looks like a good prospect as pass catching TE but lacks explosion and the snap and sudden change of direction. Lacks strength and a bit of effort in blocking. The Broncos need an aggressive blocker  or a more athletic pass catching TE. No
Marcus Allen Penn State SS Tall and thick DB that comes in support quite quickly and is able to deliver blows as tackling. Played more in a zone concept coverage defense, not the most athletic and fluid runner. Look to be more comfortable running north-south than east-west. Kind of a SS that will have to be selected by a team that uses the right coverage scheme. 3rd – 4th I like his physicality and his size, I just think the Broncos look for S that could be quite equally good at FS and a SS. Allen at this point looks to me almost exclusely as a SS. No
Josh Sweat Florida State DE Very good size, lacks some quickness and explosiona t the snap. Not overly aggressive. 4th I would like the Broncos to add talent at the OLB position that would bring aggression and sense of urgency. Sweat has great size but lacks the explosiveness at the snap that could make him compete for playing time with the actual Denver roster at the position. No
Quenton Meeks
Stanford CB Has very good size. Lacks elite explosiveness at the snap, not really fast coming up in run support. Lacks elite speed to be a pure cover corner in the NFL and lacks a bit of short area quickness. 3rd – 4th Not the kind of CB the Broncos like the most, more of a zone scheme CB than a pure man to man covercornerback. Lacks a bit of quickness and short area movementand aggression to project very well into the kind of nickelback Denver uses. No
Trenton Thompson
Georgia NT Has good size for a DT and some quickness at the snap. Powerful can hold the point of attack. Has some athleticism. Lacks elite explosiveness and speed to be a factor in the pass rush, lacks a bit of body balance to not be moved away from the play. 3rd – 4th Lacks the height the Broncos look for 3-4 DE and the athleticism tthey also like. No
Tony Brown Alabama CB Great speed and athleticism, lacks short area quickness to be able to track and stay in coverage with WR routes. Likes to hit hard but have to learn a better teckling tecnique. Too manu body tackles. Unable to change direction and make a play. Lacls strength. 2nd – 3rd More of a track and field superstar. Wants to be aggressive but does not tackle properly. Unable to cover WR that on not straight routes. No
RJ McIntosh Miami (FL) DE Has great size and looks to be better suited to be a 3-4 DE in the NFL. Able to take double teams and to occupy running lane in college, has power and in able to pursuit the ball carrier. Lacks explosion at the snap to be a consistent pass rusher but has some quickness to play with in order to creat havoc in the backfield. 4th – 5th I think the Broncos try to get very elite athlete at DE in the first rounds of the draft that might have power and some explosion and great size. He lacks a bit of explosion for what the Broncos like to draft. No
Tarvarus McFadden Florida State CB Very good size, lacks some elite athleticism but has a very good mental set that allows him to learn to stay with faster or more athletic receivers. 5th He does not showcase the kind of athletic skills the Broncos look to have in their CBs. No
Cedrick Wilson Boise State WR Is a good kick retourner though he does not have the explosiveness and suddeness of the elite ones. Lacks a bit of size and does not have elite speed either. Got bigger through the year and is a very good thing. High school QB makes him a trick plays candidate with and aggressive and creative coordinator. Patient and smooth runner. 5th – 6th The Broncos would need more explosion and aggressiveness to pair with their starter or some more quickness and suddeness to get a slot receiver. He does not suit these requirements but looks for Eagles, Chiefs and Patriots to look at him because their creative play calling. No
Quin Blanding
Virginia FS Has very good size for a S. Tracks very well the ball in the running game, able to move well around the field. Lacks some power and strength to be more effective in open field situations. Lacks elite speed and athleticism but does a good job in general to close gaps and be on place to make a tackle. 3rd Has good instincts but lacks the aggressive and fearless style of play that the Broncos like in their DBs. No
Mike Gesicki Penn State TE Great size. Former basketball and volleyball player that looks to lack a bit that explosion as a football player. Tall quite reliable pass catcher, looks to be fast. Good contrbutor in the the running game as a blocker as an HB. Lacks the explosion and the elite athletic skills to be a  downfield threat at the NFL level, will need to get stronger and more powerful. 1st – 2nd To be honest to get him in the 3rd round I’d prefer to stick with Hauerman; Gosicki looks to be a  better perfermer andhas been  playmaker for Penn State but those kind of college playmaker that will need to change the eway they play to be succesfull in the NFL. Hauerman can make short pass catches too in the  NFL but he’s not an all around player. No
Duke Ejiofor Wake Forest DE Has some good first steps at the snap and good penetration to get into the backfield. Has trouble when the Olineman is able to put his hands on him: cannot shed the block easily. Is more successful when aligned wide at the LOS. Played DE in the 4-3 defense at Wake Forest. Lacks explosion at the snap and the power and size to bullrush the OT. Might be better suited to play as OLB in the 3-4 alignement but would need to leanr to drop in coverage. 4th I think he lacks the explosion and the strength the Broncos like o their OLB and also very important will have to learn to drop in ceverage. No
Ade Aruna
Tulane DE Looks tall and lean, has good acceleration after the snap and some lateral movement but lacks short area quickness and power to be able to get past bt the Olineman. Has the body type and size more suited for a 4-3 defense at DE. Holds good enough the corner against the run, looks to have game strength. 5th I think he lacks a bit of size to be a 3-4 DE in the mold the Broncos like and he’s not a OLB either. Would be too much of a project to convert his body, bulk up and then learn to play with more power. No
Dorian O’Daniel Clemson OLB Very athletic and productive in college. Lacks size to play LB in the NFL. 3rd – 4th I like college production a lot but his lack of size would make him a hybrid SS/LB player only. Will need to bulk up anyhow and at 215 lbs he will be still not as big as other S. No
Jamarco Jones
Ohio State OT Has good but not great size, a little lethargic with his footwork at times, needs time to set up correctly, when on looks quite athletic but not overly powerful. Lacks a bit of aggressiveness but shows some very good lateral movement and some agility that could make him, with time and effort a starting LT in the NFL. 3rd – 4th Lack elite power and strength and is not athletic enough. Looks just as some of the T prospects the Broncos drafted and had to get rid of last season. No
Mike White
Western Kentucky QB Tall an big frame, will need to add some muscle and looks like to have to room for it. Has quick enough release but the ball float a bit, has a good spiral but not enough speed most of times. Has good arm strength but lacks a bit of deep ball accuracy. Lacks alos a bit of pocket presence looks to be in places where his Olinemen are not thinking he might be, leading this to sacks. This said he’s quite mobile, pocket passer with some good mobility to extend the play 3rd – 4th has teh look of the propest that does everything but everything a bit short to be the man. He has great soze and very good arm strength and that is good, still by his film I don’t get the feeling of great ceiling. More on a Elway type of player but I guess the Broncos will draft somebody with great potential to become the man or they won’t drfat a QB keeping piushing paxton lynch and hoping, maybe Chad Kelly could surprise even himself. No
Bradley Bozeman Alabama OC Great size. Lacks elite athletic skills and is quite slow in lateral movement. Looks powerful but not greatly effective when pushing his opponent. 4th I don’t think the has the true athletic skills to be a starting player in the NFL. He’s huge and uses his size very well but in the NFL it is a differnt thing. He might struggle a lot and his lack of lateral movement and agility overall won’t make him any favour. No
Troy Fumagalli Wisconsin TE Has good size but lacks elite speed and a second gear when hitting open field. Lacks a bit of athletic skills and a bit of power too. Runs ok routes. Does a good job at blocking for collegiate level but will need to get stronger in the NFL. Lacks explosiveness. 5th He’s a blocking TE that can catch some, does not look fluid when running his routes tough is capable of. Lacks aggression and nastyness, two skills that I think the Broncos are looking for. No
Michael Hill Ohio State DL3T Lacks idean height but is powerful. 4th Lacks the size the Broncos wants from their interior Dlinemen and does not have the elite explision and playmeking ability to catch their atention and make up for the size. No
Poona Ford
Texas DL3T Has interesting quick first steps at the snap but lacks the body balance and the core power to consistently get into the Olinemen and be able to re-direct his pursue. Has trouble gettting free from blocks. Loos powerful, able to stau low at the snap and attack low the Olinemen. Can handle some doeuble team. 6th I think he’s a bit undersized and lacks a not of athleticism for what the Broncos look at 3-4 NT. No
James Hearns
Louisville OLB Has good but not great size at 3-4 OLB. A bit light for 4-3 DE. Has some mental hiccups in hot moments during the game. Very aggressive, lacks elite athleticism but has some endurance and some speed. Has some explosiveness at the snap, though not elite, no sign of great laterla moement and dropping in coverage skills. CFA I guess that he mental aspect would be the primary clause of the Broncos be not really on him. Hila lack of athleticism as OLB  and size for becoming a 3-4 DE also won0t help him with the Broncos. No
DeShon Elliott Texas S Very good size, has good speed and some interesting explosiveness. Looks aggressive but does not play with a nasty streak. Does not fly out ot make plays 4th – 5th Has athletic skills and some speed to go with but doesn’t look really into it. No
Tegray Scales Indiana ILB Lacks ideal size at LB. Has very good acceleration and speed, Has some very good athleticism and instinct.  Has to get better at his tackling technique. Aggressive in rushing the QB. Lacks short area quicness 5th – 6th Although he has the athleticism and some very good speed, his tackling is questionable and his change of direction also is not very settled. No
Mike McCray Michigan ILB Always around the ball close to the LOS, lacks elite athleticism and explosion but is relentless and looks always ready to make plays. 6th I’m not against Enver detting size at the ILB position, what I question id that the Broncos will need to add a starter and depth that could provide speed and quickness at the position. He’s not exactly that kind of player, he has tons of talent and will and under the right scheme could become a very good starter in the NFL. The Broncos scheme does not looks good for him. NO
Damon Webb Ohio State S Quite athletic and rangy, fast on side to side wit smooth changes of direction. Lacks ideal size for the position in nowadays NFL and will need to bulk up and become more powerful and able to deliver big hits. 4th – 5th I think the Broncos might not look at this position until CFA because the youth and depth they have in the roster. No
Jordan Lasley
UCLA WR Very slippery WR that runs good rountes and is able to get open. Nº1 target for Josh Rosen and very dangerous downfield. Not as quick as needed to translate in slot receiver, more athletic that quick, Lacks elite speed but he’s really fast. Pictured as not the easiest character out there and a bit small for blocking well in the NFL. 3rd – 4th I don0t think in this draft the Broncos will top behaviour with talent. The team need to get back on track and getting players that are full in from moment 1 will be truly important, No
Kendrick Norton Miami (FL) DL1T Has very good size for NT in the NFL, lacks elite strength and lower body power. Will need to get better core power to have more body balance, easily moved away from the play by Olinemen, has some quickness to pas through Olinemen and into the backfield but not speed or acceleration to get to the QB or ball carrier. 5th – 6th Lacks the athleticism and power the Broncos look at the NT. No
Ryan Izzo Florida State TE Very goos size. Not explosive at the snap, at times a bit lethargic finding his assignment and placing the block. Less powerful that what the size could suggest. Able to engage blocks very well but not able to finishe them still useful chipping the DE. Has some speed in open field for a guy of his size but lacks some athletic skills. 7th It’s not very fair to judge his pass catching skills by 2017 standard due to poor QB play. Still he wasn’t exactly overkilling coverage and he did not excels in blocking either. The lacks of elite athletic skills does the rest. No
Du’Vonta Lampkin Oklahoma DL1T Huge size for a NT in the NFL. Looks less powerful and strong that what expected by his size. Received a lot of double teams. 5th Huge physical prospect that used his size a lot in college and will have to learn to play with more power in the NFL and gain body balance. No
Kyle Lauletta Richmond QB Looks smaller that his listed size. Played for a not so talented team in a lesser level of competition. Throw a good ball with good spiral, looks very catchable but some throwing decision are questionanle. Can run with the ball, has great speed and acceleration but playes form the pocker first in college. Has strange mechanics  and a low realease but the ball travel well towards the intended receiver. Has some pocket presence but will have to raise his awareness in the NFL. He did not dominate in lower ranks but also his receiver were dropping way to many balls. 3rd I think that he’s a bit overhyped at the moment. For what it’s possible to see in his films it’s really difficult to evaluate because all the drops or tipped balls that his teammated have been resposnible for. Does not have a rocket arm but looks to have some touch and to be a rythm passer. WOuldbe the Broncos interested in him? I hope not. To me he project as a Wilson backup for life, making, if I’m right , plenty of money. No
Toby Weathersby LSU OT Has ok size for playing OT in the NFL. Has body type of an interior linemen for NFL Standards. Lacks quickness ta the snap at times and explosion too. Awareness is not always there and lacks footwork to be quick on his stands in the passing game. When clicking is very powerful in the running game and is able to shield very well in the passing defense. Should really become a better closer of his block. 5th – 6th He lacks that athleticism the Broncos want in their developmental Olinemen. No
John Kelly
Tennessee RB Has good size and power. Lacks elite speed and has good not great athleticism. Able to reach a secong gear in open field but wear down a bit: not a homrun threat. Could be a bit more patient and wait for the hole to open. Has ok hands coming out of the backfield bit no LOS receiver. 3rd – 4th He loks to me similar to Devontae Booker in the running style, even too much similar but Booker is a better pass blocker and catcher. No
J.C. Jackson Maryland CB Not the tallest CB of this draft but a bit underrated. He constantly covered the best receivers on the opponent team. Has great short area quickness and some speed to go along. Too many body tackles that won’t wotk in the NFL. Needs to craft a bit his covering technique ending up sometimes on the wrong side of the route and letting the WR having the clear vision of the ball. Lacks strength to be a consistent open field tackler. 4th – 5th I like a lot his quickness and overall speed. I’m a bit concerned about the tackling techniquea and the coverage. He could get the strength but the rest could be a bit too much for the Broncos. No
Kamryn Pettway Auburn RB Has very good size and power. Has some very good lateral movement change of direction. Lacks elite speed and explosion when hitting the hole or getting the ball. Can run some outside the tackles but has limited speed. 7th – CFA Has limited speed and acceleration. More of a inside power runner with some skills to go at times on the perimeter. Can block some. I think the Broncos will look for explosiveness as to bring RB in training camp to compete for the 4th RB spot. No
P.J. Hall SHSU DL3T Lacks some height but has a huge body. Has some power and had some success in the run defense. Not able to generate much pressure in the backfield, has some quickness but lacks explosion and speed. Has some athletic skills for a guy of his size. 3rd Lacks explosion and aggression at the snap to be able to consistently peneatrate in the backfield ot not being pushed away. Played at a lesser level of competition and did not really dominate. Put on a show at his Pro Day but I couldn’t find any proof of that athleticisma nd explosiveness in the game. No
Justin Jones
NC State NT Has some speed and resistence hin pursuing the QB when in the backfield. Has good but not great size for NT in the NFL, lacks elite power and quckness. 5th – 6th I don’t think the Broncos would look at NT in middle rounds of the draft, either the second day of the draft or CFA. No
Anthony Averett
Alabama CB Have very average size and body frame: looks thin. Lacks elite game speed and does not look overly explosive. Could be in trouble with bigger receivers and will have to gain weight and strength to be a consistent tackler in run support in the NFL. 2nd I actually think that he’s overrated. Did not stand out making plays in the games I saw: very consistent in coverage but from one side Alabama did not face great future NFL passer and on the other side did not dominate opponent receivers. No
Dimitri Flowers Oklahoma FB Very dangerous ball catcher out of the backfield. Lacks elite speed and quickness but looks to be a smart player that knows how to get open in the passing game. 5th If the Broncos are looking to keep a HB style of player I think that Janovich has shown his value and can do everything Flowers can do too. No
Matt Elam Kentucky NT Huge mountain of a man. Lacks body balance and less powerful and strong that what the size would suggest. Moved to easily at times by average colleg olinemen. CFA I think the Broncos looks at the size but to athletic skills more than that. No
Equanimeous St. Brown Notre Dame WR Great size and speed for a tall guy. Wasn’t a factor at all against Boston College, don’t creating much separation and dropping the few balls thrown at his direction. Great speed in open field, good athleticism and effort in blocking. Had a very productive game against Stanford. 2nd Is he going to be a Nº1 receiver in the NFL? I think he might be a nº2. He’s as physical as he can be but lacks power because of tall and thin.  Also a bit inconsistent, at times is too easy for the defense to erase him from the field, will need time to deelop his body and his game and the Broncos might look to more ready products. No
Michael Dickson Texas P Incredible strong leg, can take pressure and boot great punt too. Also able to get very goos accuracy on his kicks. 3rd I would never take a punter in the 3rd round. No matter what. This said the Broncos have actually on eof the best punter in the league and also the 7th round pick from 2 years ago in the team so I really don’t think they’ll be on the market to draft any P. No
Brandon Parker
North Carolina A&T OT Looks massive ans stout. Lacks some body balance. Strong an dpowerful really difficult to move from his stand. Has to to a better job at bending his knees and has to get some better quickness. Often beaten at a double move. 4th – 5th Size and strength are great but lacks athletic skills and some quickness to help him against NFL explosive pass rushers. No
Devron Davis UTSA CB Very good size, looks bigger than his listed numbers. Looks less powerful than one could expect from his size too. Lacks some quickness and explosiveness. Not very aggressive. CFA I think the Broncos like more exposiveness andaggression in DBs. No
Austin Corbett Nevada OG Looks bigger than his listed size, has broad shoulders could put on some more pounds. Looks very strong when able to put his hands on a defender. Lacks elite footwork to play OT in the NFL but could swith to the inside of teh Oline, at OG better. Lacks elite athleticism, does not look very comfortable running at the LOS. Uses his power in run protection. 2nd – 3rd He lacks the athletic skills the Broncos covet, has tons of ower and could provide good versatility. Still will have to adapt his game to NFL speed and power. No
Johnny Townsend Florida P Accurate and powerful leg. Able to place the ball understanding the situation in the game. 6th After signing King I don’t think the Broncos will be looking to draft a P. Maybe they’ll being in a CFA. No
Dominick Sanders Georgia S Looks smaller than his listing. Los undersized for the NFL, will have to bulk up. Dynamyc and experienced player (more than 50 starts in college), looks fluid running but lacks elite explosiveness and speed. Also not the most powerful and aggressive player. More a deep FS than a tweener S. CFA My evaluation is related to the fact that Broncos S position is alreay stacked with young talent in need of development. Also he looks less aggressive tahn what the Broncos looks to like. No
Conor Sheehy
Wisconsin DE Has very good size for 3-4 DE and quite good quickness at the snap. Has very goos strength, lacks some body balance and lacks elite athleticism. CFA Has the size the Broncos are interested on Dlinemen but lacks the athleticism that they like in order to get drafted. No
Alex Cappa
Humboldt St OT Playes at a lot lesser competitive level, Looks big and powerful. Lacks some body balance and footwork to be an OT in the NFL, better suited to play at OG. Very aggressive. 5th I think he’ll be a big project i the NFL and the Broncos would look to some project late if it would bring versatility. The lacks of athletic skills is something the Broncos used to take seriously. No
Chase Edmonds Fordham RB Has some hiccups at times in pass protection when asked. Has very good body balance and lateral movement and speed, lacks quickness when made the cut to burnst into the hole. Has good open field speed. Strong always able get soem extra yardage with his stiff arm. Has great elusiveness wit his lateral movements 7th – CFA Jack of all trades, master of none. Very complete player that plays hard and will be in some training camp come summer. Very athletic and patient runner. No
Simmie Cobbs Jr. Indiana WR Has great size, looks bigger than his listed numbers. Lacks quickness at the snap and short area movement are a bit below average. Very powerful and strong, able to place very good blocks but not a good finisher. At times looks disconnected from the play. Has some speed and but not elite. 4th – 5th Has a body language that does not cope well with a kick and screaming type of mentality team. Lacks the kind of athleticism the Broncos might look for and the quickness to be a skill addition as third WR. No
Garret Dooley Wisconsin OLB Put good number for explosiveness at the combine. Still 40 yard dash not as fast as required for 3-4 OLB. He plays well against the run but lacks the power to not be pulkled around at times from Olinemen. Also lacks elite quickness and explosiveness at the snap. Has some speed but lacks a bit of body balance. 6th – 7th I might have seen the wrong tapes, but I thinks that he lkacks a bit of athletic skills and quickness. Also a bit undersized and does not have to core power for be a consistent factor against NFL blocking TE in setting the corner against the run. No
Tyrone Crowder
Clemson OG Big guy that lacks a bit of explosion and athletic skills. Will need to get a better core strength and power before he coild be moved to OG (he played RT at Clemson) in the NFL. 7th Too much of a project for OG. No
Warren Ball
Akron RB Had a second in a row end of year knee  injury in October. He was leading Akron team in rushing yards and touchdown by then. CFA Medicak red flags in a year of abundancy or RB. Transferred from Ohio State and played there with Elliot and Carlos Hyde. Looks like Ohio or Pennsylvania type of Training camp tryout. No
Brian Allen
Michigan State OC Lacks ideal size, very physical and powerful. Has some interesting quickness and moves well at the LOS and to the second level of defenders. Undersized, will have to craft his body to be ready to play in the NFL. Lacks some athleticism. 6th – 7th I think the Broncos like more athletic even if undersized OC  and likes even more if the OC could play OG and the opposite. He lacks some athleticism, has nasty streak plays until the whisthle but does not bring much versatility. No
Nick Stevens Colorado St QB Will need to get bigger and stronger to sustain NFL hits. Has very good accuracy in short and intermediate throws and outside the numbers. However the ball does not have much spin and that could be a huge liability with quick NFL defensive backs. Not a runner and lacks powerful pocket presence. Is said to be a leader and to be capable to gain the respect of the teammates. lacks elite arm strength. 7th – CFA I think Elway will always prefere arm strength and size to anything and any of the two will have to be present in any CFA that could be picked up to compete in training camp. Unfortunately these are not Stevens strong suits. Also he’s not mobile enough to be the kind of QB that Gary Kubiak likes. No
Chris Warren III Texas FB Has great size and power. Good blocker in the backfield. Power runner that is able to use his size to gain extra yardage. Lacks explosiveness and speed but shows very good athleticism and power, he keeps on moving forward until the defense literally brings him down. Effort runner. 7th – CFA More a FB than a RB in the NFL for the lack of speed and explosion. Block very well. I think the Broncos won’t bring competition at FB having Janovich already there and I’m not even sure it will be a posiotion they’ll bring into the 53 men roster. No
Tray Matthews Auburn S Has avarage NFL size for a S, has good technique for open field tackle and is said to have been the leader of Auburn defense. He his energetic and impressibe in his pursuit, has good athletic skills and speed lacks a bit of instinct for NFL level plays. 6th – 7th I Don’t think the Broncos will bring in many S in 2018, before CFA, Dymente Thomas looks to be there to challenge the four oyther S in the roster. If Matthews will end up undrafted, the Broncos may and could look at him because his leadership skills and the defensive backs coaches to develop players. No
JT Barrett Ohio State WR As a QB is not the biggest and does not have the strongest arm or the most accuracy on his throws. Really mobile and dangerous in the Read Option, but need major upgrade on pocket presence in passing downs, not really alert under pressure which is strange given his superior gifts as elusive runner. To find a team in the nFL he should end up in some situation as the Patriots where they’re able to develop offensive talent and use it to its strenght. He’s way to small to play TE, may become a good slot receiver (depending on his ball catching skills) with the threat of being able to throw the ball too in an offense as the Patriots one he could become, with time, a very dangerous weapon. CFA Not enough touch n the ball to get a draftable grade as QB and huge work in progress as TE/WR. A player that looks to have the intangibles to make the transition starting from the scratch given the time. No
Christian Campbell Penn State CB On the tall side but a bit undersozed, need to get bigger and more powerful. Overpowerd when blocked does not show elite athletic skills and quickness to get out od the block or to remain unblocked to make the tackle. Lack also elite speed to stay outside with NFL caliber WRs. 7th he has good size and is beefy enough but really does not excels in any area that could attact the attention of Denver and let him be drafted, IMO. No
Jacob Tuioti-Mariner UCLA DE Undersized for 4-3 DT and 3-4 DE. Will need to get bigger and more powerful. Lacks a bit of explosiveness at the snap and is consistent and powerful enough to demeand some double team. Does lack elite lateral movement. CFA Does not have the size the Broncos looks to like in their DL, either in heigth for DE or in weight for NT. No
Jaleel Wadood UCLA FS Good final speed and sense of where to position himself to make the tackle. Lacks size for NFL standard and not as explosive  as requested to make up to his size. CFA Very undersized and not very sudden or quick to be used as returnman on special team. No
DJ Ward Oklahoma OLB Lack size to be a Dlineman in the NFL and does not have the explosion and quick first steps to be a good pass rusher either. Solid high motor defender. CFA I think the Broncos should bring some new competition at OLB position but he’s undersized and does not show the explosion the Broncos need to create much more competition in the actual personnel beside Von Miller. No
Emmanuel Beal Oklahoma OLB Lacks size for become a NFL LB. Has some speed and some instinct. Takes goos tackling angles. CFA I think some team could try to move him at SS but it migh be a long transition. No
Justin Falcinelli Clemson OC Has good enough size for OC in the NFL. Lacks eite athleticism and power to face big and powerful NT and DT in the NFL. Lacks footwork to make up to the power and athleticism, could have problem in the passign game with quick interior rushers and will need to get stronger and more powerful to not be over pushed back in the running game. CFA Has the size the Broncos are looking for but not the athletic skills or footwork. Too much of a project for a team that does not have a huge need at the position. No
RoDerrick Hoskins Florida State ILB Has good size, not great, lacks quickness and elite speed. Looks to be a bit heavy footed and not very quick in disangage the block from the olineman. CFA No the kind of speedy side to side ILB that the Broncos looks to like. Has more size than incumbent players but lacks quickness and athletic skills to match them in those categories. No
Jake Bennett Colorado St OC MWC first teamer selected by coaches and media. Undersized a bit for NFL standards will have to bulk up a bit. A bit slow at the snap, lacks a bit of power and will have to become stronger. Needs to reach better balance with his foot to be able to face NFL powerful interior Dlinemen. Also not a great block finisher, needs to get better hand placement and really gain better balance or his assignment could slip out of the block. 7th – CFA I know he’s a instate prospect so the Broncos should have great insight on how he could be useful to the team but the lack of balance and overall aggressiveness makes me a bit cold on him. No
Archie Lewis Boise State OG Has average size for interior Olineman, looks a bit less powerful and athletic that what needed in the NFL. Does a good job against the run but weill slot inside in the NFL because of his size. Looks to have really long arms atht might intrigue some teams. CFA Will have to become more powerful and have better awareness of what it will come in each and every play to top his lack of athletic skills and explosion. Has the body to become more powerful and be very good in the running game. Will need tiome to develop and usually the Broncos are keeping  OTs on the on the 10 men practice squad. No
Alec Dhaenens Boise State TE Lacks a bit of size, blocking TE that has some quick first steps at the snap and can line up at the LOS as additional Olineman, in college. Lacks some power and stregth, able to maintain blocks by being agile and having quick feet. Has some spèed to run well enough seam and out routes. Lacks athletic skills to be a constant factor in the passing game. CFA I think the Broncos are looking for a pass blocking TE to add and watch in training camp. Dhaenens is not that dominant blocking big TE. No
Ty Schwab Boston College ILB Lacks ideal size. Very aggressive in pursue. Lacks elite speed. Gritty old style ILB that lacks explosiveness and might be a two down player only. His lacks of elite speed might hinder his option to land on special teams too. CFA Real foot ball player a bit undersized and with less athletic skills than the Broncos usually like No
Andrew Trumbetti Notre Dame DE Good pursue of the ball carrier. Non stop motor. Lacks size to be a NFL DT and explosion at the snap and quickness to ne a 4-3 DE. CFA The only scheme where he could fit it may be 4-3 as DE. Lacks size for 3-4 DE and size for NT. No
Charles Standberry Louisville TE Lacks ideal size, runs smoothly and well with the ball in his hands. Able to be HB kind of player, patient waiting the hole to be created, runs hard and with speed when hitting the hole. Lacks lateral movement and quickness to get open consistenly in the passing game. CFA Lacks size and power to be the factor in blocking that the Broncos are looking for. No
Tre Flowers Oklahoma State SS Great size, very tall a little thin for that height. Not as aggessive as he could be, not very stout in run support. 7th I think the Broncos really likes aggressive Safeties. He has great size but lacks some athleticism and lateral movement and is not an hardcore run slammer. No
 Zachary Crabtree Oklahoma State OT Has great size, lacks elite athleticism and some power too. Has some heavy foot and could have problems with speed or quick rushers in pass protection. Also not as powerful as his size would suggest. Struggle a bit at times with Olinemen. 6th He has the size the NFL looks for but IMO does not play with aggression and power the Broncos say they look for at the position. Also does not showcase the power and drive to be converted to OG in the NFL and might be a longer project than teh Broncos are looking for. No
Luke Falk Washington St QB Very good height but lacks size for teh NFL. Too thin to absorb NFL punishing sacks and hits. Played in a passy happy scheme in college and had a very productive career. Knows perfectly how to play in that system but shows not great pocket awareness and decision. Very good at checkdowns, knows to read his system but a bit questionable if able to thrive soon enough in any NFL system. 4th Has the looks of a developmental backup QB. Great career in college but IMO lacks strength power and decision  to poject well in the NFL. Armstrength is not the top of the class by any means, Has very good ball touch but is not capable to make great plays if pressured. I don’t think that he has the skills that the Broncos covet at the position. No
Danny Etling LSU QB 6th year senior that looks to know what he’s dping but at times fails at doing it. Can sscramble a bit and take off ewith the ball if needed, lacks elite arm strength and accuracy in intermediate and long passes. Has good pocket awareness. 7th – CFA I don’t think the Broncos will look into a developmental QB in this draft and even more a 6th year senior. No
Justin Lawler SMU DE Has good size as 4-3 DE, lacks explosion at the snap and some quickness, has some strength and bull rush well, lacks lateral movement to change his rushing lane. 7th More of 4-3 DE than 3-4 OLB. Lacks size to be 3-4 DE. No
Nate Gaines UTSA SS Has very good size for a S. Lacks a bit of athletic skills and speed. Not very fast coming down i  run support. Able to position himself quite well in the passing game from his S back seat. Misses some tackles for taking bad angles. CFA I think the Broncos looks for more flashy and explosive players. He looks solid in zone coverage. No
Austin Jupe UTSA CB Has good size and some speed. Lacks elye athleticism and som epower to be more consistent in run support. CFA Has some speed but lacks aggressiveness and is a bit a question in the run support. No
Trey Martin Rice OC Undersized, will need to gain power and strength. Will need to  get better body balance. CFA Undersized and lacks versatility to be taken into practice squad to develop and or adding depth. No
Bo Bower Iowa ILB Old school ILB, lacks a bit of athletic skills and explosion at the snap and changing direction but has very good instincts and is very stout and fearless in run stopping. Lacks a bit of power too. CFA The Broncos are looking especially to athleticism when choosing ILB. He is a hared nosed ILB but actually lacks the sideline to sideline type of play. No
Nick Nelson Wisconsin CB Lacks a bit of size, looks smaller on the field that his listed numbers. Has very good ahort area quickness and footwork. Because of that he’s at times able to come off his position and make a play to the ball. Is fast coming in run support but lacks abit of power and strength to make the punishing tackle. Runs smoothly and is able to run with receivers although he looks more confortable facing the ball. 5th – 6th Not as aggressive as the CB that are actually on Broncos roster. Still a very good player that could provide quelity depth to other teams and could be imployed as nickel corner soon in his career. No
Adam Ploudre Missouri OG Has good size, very strong. Lacks some athleticism doesn’t look very comfortable running. Does a good job un the running game, holding his point. A bitless reliable in the passing game where he does not bend his knee very naturally and does not showcase a great body balance, will have issue with quick inside pass rushers and speed rushers. CFA I think the Broncos will look to add CFA players that could bring competition and versatility at the OL and could possible be developed into reliable backup at least. They usually look at athletic players with size that have other areas of their game to be refined or developed. No
Courtney Love Kentucky ILB Has some athleticism, lacks a bit of size, aggressive. Has some instinct but lacks explosion and speed to be able to play mana to man coverage in the NFL. CFA Lacks a bit of explosion and speed to be a sideline to sideline ILB. Has some athleticism but is not overwhelming and does not make up for the spedd. I think the Broncos looks mote for this traits in developing their ILB under Elway. No
Tristan Nickelson Texas OT Has great size and does a good job in running  plays moving away the defender. Lacks elite athleticism and has questionable footwork. Not very comfortable blocking quick and speed defenders. CFA Has great size and some power but lacks athleticism and what at the end the Broncos are looking for in big and developmental Olinemen. No
Brett Kendrick OT Great size. Lacks footwork and body balance to plat OT in the NFL. Has some good strength when able to puti his hands on the defender, able to move the defender away. Not a good block finisher. CFA Great size but lacks the aggressiveness and the will to dictate the block and finish it on his terms. No
Roc Thomas Jacksonville St RB Has good quickness and elusiveness and can make defender miss tackles. Lacks a bit of patience and should allow his blockers to create holes or position themself to make him way. Has great vision when getting to the second level of defender, see there the developing play and is able to get exra yardage because of that. Can catch the ball out of the backfield some. Lacks elite athleticism. 6th Has similar style of play to Devontae Booker. I guess the Broncos are looking for a back that can complement Booker not a mere backup. If a backup they might have a CFA grade depending on if there are any character concerns that would erase him from the board completely. No
Kevin Spears Jacksonville St WR Has good size and run ok routes. Lacks elite speed but has some athleticism. Lacks stregth to fight in contested balls in the NFL and the elite heigth to not have to fight with NFL DBs. CFA I think the Broncos might focus en explosion and quickness on WR prospects to grow. The roster is quite full with size. No
Danny Johnson Southern CB Great showing at the Senior Bowl and at the Combine. Lacks ideal size but looks explosive and athletic. Thin frame. Need to get better angle on open field tackles. Not the most aggressive CB. Lacks strength and power to match up with NFL WRs. CFA Tons of athleticism and explosion but is not as aggressive as the Broncos like. No
Aaron Tiller Southern OLB Smaller type of linbebacker with wide body. Very aggressive and has some short area quickness that allows him to beat the Olineman. Also looks thick but needs to get more powerful for the NFL. Lacks the speed to be able, once passed through the Olinemen to get immediately to the QB. CFA Lacks long arm that Dumervil has, just to cut short the comparison, still plays with a lot of intensity but lacks athletich skills and speed out of the corner to be consistently passing throught Ots in the NFL.  I think that he’ll be in some NFL teams training camp. But I don’t think it will be Denver. No
Darius Leonard South Carolina State ILB Explosive at his pro Day.  Has very good size. Lacks somehow a bit of instincts. Lacks elite quickness and explosion at the snap. Could be more aggressive. Very athletic and can cover some. 2nd – 3rd Well, incredibly I think he’s a bit overhyped. I did not see real game explosion or quickness and most of all, for what the Broncos looks to like, does not play with an aggressive style. No
Logan Woodside Toledo QB MAC Offensive Player of the Year. Lacks accuracy at times in deep throws. Very good accuracy and placing in short to mid range throws. The ball come out of his hands with good enough speed. 6th – 7th Not the type of QB that Elway likes and not enough athletic and rythm passer to get the attention of Kubiak. No
Elijah Nkansah Toledo OT Has good size but lacks footwork to keep his body balance against a dynamic and athletic pass rusher. Might have to move to OG in the NFL for the lack of athleticism. Could be quicker at the snap too. 7th – CFA Has good size and the frame to get bigger but the lack of athleticism and aggression don’t bode well with the kind of player the Broncos will bring in to compete in training camp. No
Manny Morgan Akron RB Lacks ideal size and speed. Very fluid as pass catcher out of the backfield. Display very good quickness. Lacks power to run inside the tackles in the NFL. Lacks the speed to make up the lack of power. CFA I think the Broncos will bring competition at training camp focusing on explosion and speed. He looks good inopen field but lacks the explosion and speed to make up his size issue. Looks like a Patriots CFA. No
Anthony Coyle Fordham OG Playes LT at Fordham, has some athleticism, but lacks a bit of power and footwork. Will need to get bigger in the NFL but looks to be very strong. CFA Would bring versatility and a bit of a athleticism. Lacks a bit of size for what the Broncos like at both OT and OG and played at a lesser level of competition without be a monster there. Developmental project. No
Garrett Hudson Richmond TE Lacks athelticism, runs not very smoothly, has ok hands and looks less strong that what his size suggests. His routes running is just adequate and does not looks to be the most aggressive TE in the draft. CFA Does not look like the TE prospetc the Broncos need, strong, aggressive and with athleticism to be a factor both in passing game but even more important in the blocking phase of the offense. No
Alex Light Richmond OT Has some strength and moves well enough as ablocker to find some interest by the NFL. Has good size and power, Quite dominate physically at his level of competition even thouth he did not make himself a star. Lacks some athleticism and might have the best shot in the NFL if converted to OG. CFA Will needd time to develop as interior Olineman, will need to get better core power and to play at the speed and power of the Pros. I think the Broncos might go to a regional prospetc with similar skills ot another bigger or more athletic prospect. No
Korey Cunningham Cincinnati OT Great performance in his Pro Day. Quick at the snap, looks comfortable with his footwork and athletic enough for lateral running. Does a good job pushing away his assignment in the runnig game but need to be a better blocks finisher. Lacks short area quickness and his footwork fails him at times suffering covering exposive defenders. 7th – CFA Has average size for a OT with some athletic skills. No
Fred Warner BYU ILB Has some interesting quickness at the snap and quite athletic. Lacks some strength and explosiveness. Has problems shedding blocks from bigger player, he looks smaller than his listed size and quite thinner than 236 pounds. Played in a zone coverage scheme. 2nd Has tons of athletic skills but plays not very close to the ball and lack some nasty sreak and aggressiveness mainly for lack of strength. He could gain the strength working and will need to adapt his game to NFL power. If he would have extended experience in a man to man scheme defense I would suggest a middle rounds grade for the Broncos, but he played in a mainly zone coverage scheme. No
Tarvarius Moore Southern Miss FS Has  good size for a S, diagnose well the play, plays aggessive. Lacks a bit of range in coverage and at times needs to take better tackling angles in run support. Lacks elite speed. Has good athleticism. 3rd He does not the strenght and power to be a consistent tackler in run support as in the box S as the Broncos like and also does not have the range in coverage and the coverage angles to be the effective FS as the Broncos like either. No
