Denver Broncos mock draft: Devin White shockingly available
The Denver Broncos should prepare for all scenarios, and so will we. What if Devin White is available with the 10th overall pick?
The Denver Broncos didn’t have a single scenario in 2018 when putting together their own mock drafts that involved Bradley Chubb still being on the board with the fifth overall pick.
It was expected that either the Giants or Browns would be taking Chubb with the second or fourth overall pick, but the Giants took Saquon Barkley and the Browns surprisingly took Denzel Ward.
The Broncos then took a trade they had in place with the Buffalo Bills off the table to take Chubb, a player that was simply too good to pass up on. Could the same thing happen in 2019?
RIght now, everyone seems locked into the thought that LSU linebacker Devin White will be off the board no later than pick no. 5 overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Buccaneers have linebacker as a need among their other positional needs in their first year under Bruce Arians as a head coach, so the fit makes sense, especially when you consider that Kwon Alexander — the Bucs’ no. 2 inside ‘backer along with Lavonte David — bolted to San Francisco in free agency.
It makes sense to connect the Bucs and White, but what if the Bucs go with a player who could be higher on their overall board?
Was Ed Oliver’s pro day good enough to push him up into their top five? What about if Quinnen Williams or Josh Allen are available?
There are plausible scenarios to consider in which the Bucs do not take White, and therefore the Broncos should be prepared with a plan of action if he is, indeed, there with their top pick.
I’ve got us covered here with a seven-round mock draft scenario.
