Denver Broncos 2020 mock draft: Trading up for Henry Ruggs
Courtland Sutton. Noah Fant. Henry Ruggs.
That’s a big three if I’ve ever seen one.
The Denver Broncos need to add firepower to their offense. They need someone who can actually take the top off of a defense and someone who can create offense when everything else is stagnant.
Not to put all of that pressure on Henry Ruggs, but…here we are.
The Broncos have struggled to consistently put points on the board over the last five years. It’s hard to say that Ruggs can just be instant offense, but his touchdown production — as mentioned previously — is indicative that Ruggs is about as instant-offense as it gets.
Imagining what the Broncos can do with this guy on the opposite side of the field from Courtland Sutton is a lot of fun.
We know Drew Lock likes to push the ball vertically, but Ruggs is equally capable of turning short passing plays into huge gains.
If this guy is the Broncos’ top target offensively in this draft class, moving up for him and basically trading four players for one could be worth the price.
