2013 NFL Mock Draft: The Denver Broncos Select…

We’re here to talk NFL draft again.

The Denver Broncos are fighting for the No. 1 spot in the AFC, but it’s never too early to start thinking about the draft.

In this weekly feature, we’re showcasing Fansided.com’s  2013 NFL Mock Draft.

If the draft were held today, the 12-3 Broncos would be selecting 30th in the first round.

According to Fansided, with the 30th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select:

30. Denver Broncos – Tyler Eifert – TE/Notre Dame

Notre Dame didn’t get to the title game on a fluke and it wasn’t all Manti Te’o. Eifert is a big, physical ex-receiver that converted to tight end who can flourish in the new era for tight ends. Peyton Manning has demonstrated in his career that he loves to throw to his tight end, but he’s never had a Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski type of target, he’s always had Dallas Clark’s and Jacob Tamme’s. Eifert is a 6-foot-6 abominable snowman and Manning will finally get with the 21st Century when it comes to the new breed of tight end targets. - Josh Hill (FanSided) 

With Jacob Tamme, Joel Dreessen, and Julius Thomas (in waiting), the Broncos shouldn’t waste a first round pick on a tight end. I still like the defensive tackle option or even selecting a cornerback in the first round.

Let us know what you think. Which position/player should the Broncos go after in the first round of this year’s draft?

    Finally an intelligent prediction. Josh’s reasoning is spot on. Unfortunately Eifert probably will be gone as everyone will know that Elway and Manning want him. Which leaves Zach Ertz who might be just as good and is the same size and who had Andrew Luck throwing to him for a couple years.
    Say, all you folks who keep pounding on the Broncos needing a DT – do you know which NFL team is second against the run out of 32 teams?
    Now, this IS the year for DT’s. The top seven will likely all go in the first round.
    But a TE like Eifert comes along very rarely. Think a massive athletic wide receiver who can block like a lineman.
    Remember, we have the best QB in NFL history now. Let’s give him a little love and get him the TE he’s always wanted.
