It’s always interesting to read some mock drafts to see where others believe the Broncos are going in April. Daniel Jeremiah has a solid playmaker in mind.
After a 7-9 2019 campaign, the Denver Broncos are actively preparing for the upcoming 2020 offseason. Free agency and the NFL Draft are going to be huge for the team if they plan to compete with some of the best.
That will include their division rival Kansas City Chiefs, who will represent the AFC in this year’s Super Bowl. Yes, I know a lot of Broncos Country fans are feeling rather ill about that tidbit. But we are living in that world now.
In my true and honest opinion, I believe the Broncos have enough pieces on defense to help against the long time AFC West rivals. But the offense really will need to be addressed in the spring. If they plan to compete in their own division against a quarterback like Patrick Mahomes, Denver needs to put up more than single digit points.
Yes, Denver scored only nine points total in the two games against the Chiefs. In order for them to win, they need around three times as many points, at least.
I would be looking for the Denver Broncos to focus on offensive weapons in the draft. One name that Broncos Country should keep an eye on is Jerry Jeudy. A wide out from Alabama, the Broncos are probably going to need a second wide receiver to compliment Courtland Sutton. He would also add on with Noah Fant and Phillip Lindsay.
Daniel Jeremiah has Denver selecting that very guy in his first mock draft of the offseason. Granted the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl still need to be played, it is ensuring that Denver was selected to get a solid playmaker.
Jerry Jeudy is the perfect compliment to Courtland Sutton. He has shown that he can be a deep threat in the receiving game. And he also has the ability to break tackles and have breakaway speed to get away from the defenders.
Offense will be key in the draft. If this pick ends up coming true, I am certain Broncos Country will be very happy.
