Denver Broncos remaining picks after first round
The Denver Broncos traded down in the 2019 NFL Draft, selected Noah Fant, and picked up an extra second round pick this year.
The Denver Broncos got themselves a new offensive weapon in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, bringing in Iowa Hawkeyes tight end Noah Fant.
Fant, an athletic freak at 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, ran a 4.50 in the 40-yard dash and tested in the 91st percentile or better in the 60-yard shuttle, three-cone drill, broad jump, vertical jump, and of course the 40.

Now that the Broncos have Fant in the fold, what’s up next for them in the 2019 NFL Draft?
We’ll have a day two mock draft for you on Friday, but for now, let’s take a look at the remaining picks and speculate a little bit on the players still available.
1st round, 20th overall: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
2nd round, 41st overall
2nd round, 52nd overall (from PIT)
3rd round, 71st overall
4th round, 125th overall (from HOU)
5th round, 148th overall
5th round, 156th overall (from MIN)
6th round, 182nd overall
7th round, 237th overall (from HOU)
The day three selections — Friday’s picks — are italicized.
The Broncos don’t have to wait long before they are on the clock in the second round. They have the 9th overall pick in round two, and there are some really intriguing players still available.
None more so than Missouri quarterback Drew Lock.
John Elway stated he doesn’t have and first-round graded players left on his board, so Lock didn’t get a first-round grade despite all of the in-person scouting Elway did on him.
Still, in round two, Lock has to be considered a possibility even though the Broncos said he — or any quarterback — wasn’t in round one.
Other than that, what could the Broncos look at doing with their second round picks? Dalton Risner is still available, and we all know how badly he wants to be with the Broncos.
He would be a great pick.
What happens if Chris Harris Jr. is traded? Cornerback has to be bumped up the priority list.
There are so many options and we’ll explore that more on Friday.
