After falling to 3-8 on the season, the Denver Broncos currently own a top five draft pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
If the Denver Broncos loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday brought any kind of positive news, it allowed them to move up in draft selection as the team looks prepared to get ready for the 2020 offseason.
If the regular season were to end today, the Denver Broncos would hold the fifth overall pick in next year’s 2020 NFL Draft. Had the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants won their games today, we could be talking about the Broncos having the third overall pick with five games in the season to go.
But that could happen if certain things go the Broncos way. As it stands now, the Broncos are only one game better than the teams who currently hold the second through fourth picks in the draft. As it stands right now, the Cincinnati Bengals own the number one overall pick as Denver is three games ahead of them.
With the way this season is going, there is a lot of potential that the Broncos end up with at the very least a top five pick. I can even see Denver ending up with a top three draft selection. But we shall see with five games to go.
As far as who I could see the Denver Broncos drafting at that spot, I can see the team targeting an offensive lineman if the quarterback situation with Drew Lock seems like it will pan out. Wide receiver could be another option for the Broncos since I did not see a lot of Tim Patrick in Sunday’s contest.
I personally am not huge on most of the quarterbacks in this draft class except Joe Burrow. But I know he will likely be on his way to being drafted first overall. A top five pick should really help the Denver Broncos get themselves back to their winning ways. But there are still five games left. So, it all depends on the next month.
