With some new weapons for Drew Lock on offense in the first two days, the Broncos set their sights on the defensive side of the ball on day three.

Two days of the 2020 NFL Draft are now in the books. The Denver Broncos used their first five picks mostly on the offensive side of the football. The team was able to draft the crafty route runner in Jerry Jeudy on day one.

John Elway then followed that with four picks on day two. He surprisingly went wide receiver again in the second round, selecting KJ Hamler. He adds quite a lot of speed to the Denver Broncos. Then the team used two of their three third-round picks on defensive players.

Addressing the cornerback position with Michael Ojemudia and the defensive line with McTelvin Agim were choices that I did not expect, especially with some of the other names on the big board. But then the Broncos got perhaps one of the best steals of the drafts in my opinion when they drafted Lloyd Cushenberry with their second third-round pick.

The fact that he was there in the third round surprised me with how much he was mocked to go as late as the second round. The good news is that he fell into the Broncos laps and that he can begin to strengthen that offensive line.

What should the Denver Broncos do on day three of the draft? I take a look at some options they may have.
