Fourth Round (106th and 109th Overall)

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. player. Safety. West Virginia University. KyzirWhite. 106. 45

This would be my dark horse pick in the draft for the Denver Broncos. I understand that Justin Simmons and Will Parks are still in Denver. But reading up on this prospect made me think that he would be excellent in orange and blue.

He plays like a safety but has that potential to be a quarterback rushing linebacker. It is similar to the role that T.J. Ward played while he was in Denver. Having a guy that can create some disruption on the football field from the safety position would be ideal.

Next: Drew Brees is still a free agent

KerryonJohnson. 109. 45. Running Back. Auburn. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis

The Denver Broncos will likely be looking for a running back in the offseason. C.J. Anderson’s contract provides an opt-out that John Elway could very well take. And with Jamaal Charles going on the open market, the Broncos are going to need a running back.

Kerryon Johnson could be a solid option for the Denver Broncos. He appears to have that bruiser mentality that could just barrel over defensive linemen and linebackers. He also has the ability to catch the football in the backfield, which could help wonders for a rookie quarterback or one that needs a security blanket to pass to. Johnson could be a good option to replace Anderson if he is still on the board.
