Rounds 5-6

Fifth Round (142nd overall): Jack Cichy, LB, Wisconsin

The Broncos sent their linebackers coach to the Wisconsin pro day, and reportedly liked what they saw from Cichy, who is not yet fully healthy. He could be a bit of an injury risk/reward player, but is a very good one when he’s at 100 percent.

Fifth Round (160th overall): Trey Quinn, WR, SMU

Quinn might be the best slot receiver in this year’s draft. He has reliable hands and runs great routes. The former LSU transfer really stood out this past year at SMU, his only year as a starter for them.

Fifth Round (163rd overall): Darius Phillips, CB, Western Michigan

Injuries could push the versatile Phillips down the board. He’s a cornerback by trade but is also one of the best return specialists in this year’s draft. He could be a nice value pick on day three.

Sixth Round (182nd overall): Joe Ostman, Edge, Central Michigan

With their final pick of the draft, the Broncos pick up a very productive edge player who can give them depth and a guy who has proven he can get to the quarterback with a variety of different pass rush moves despite being limited somewhat athletically.
