Third Round (1st Pick): Wayne Gallman, RB, Clemson
Gallman is one of the toughest running backs I’ve scouted this year. He might not have game-breaking ability like Leonard Fournette, Dalvin Cook, or Christian McCaffrey, but he has the ability to grind out tough yardage, hit the occasional home run, and be effective as a receiver and blocker on third downs.
This guy would be a valuable weapon for the Broncos in tandem with C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker.

Third Round (2nd Pick): Taywan Taylor, WR, Western Kentucky
Taywan Taylor is one of the best big-play threats in the entire NFL Draft. Over the last three seasons at Western Kentucky, he’s averaged over 17 yards per reception. He caught 34 touchdown passes in the last two seasons combined.
As the Broncos move into a primarily shotgun oriented offense, this is the type of guy that could line up out wide or in the slot and be an explosive playmaker from anywhere on the field. This would be a fantastic value pick.
Third Round (3rd Pick): Alex Anzalone, LB, Florida
When healthy, Anzalone is probably a high second round pick. The problem is, he hasn’t been able to consistently stay on the field. He’s so gifted physically, and when he’s playing, he’s always around the ball.
The Broncos missed Danny Trevathan this past year, and Anzalone could come in as a third round pick and compete for a starting job right away.
