Defensive Line

This is perhaps the biggest need for the Denver Broncos in the draft. With the loss of Malik Jackson and Sylvester Williams possibly entering the final year of his rookie contract if they do not exercise his fifth year option after the draft, this could be a crucial draft for this position.

The good thing about it is that there are some top prospects in this draft in the first round that the Broncos could consider looking at. Guys like A’Shawn Robinson and Robert Nkemdiche would be good fits for the team in the first round.

This position is going to be key for the Broncos. The unit last year did a solid job at getting to the quarterback and stuffing the run at key points this season. Derek Wolfe has definitely been a key part to the defensive line.

If the Broncos can find someone to compliment him on the opposite side, this defense could be even more dangerous in 2016.
