Denver Broncos: Predicting final 4 games and where team will draft in first round
The Broncos would have the No. 8 pick
A record of 5-11 usually gets you a much better draft pick than No. 8 overall, but there are some really bad teams in the league this season. The teams ahead of the Broncos based on these predictions would be the Jets, Jaguars, Bengals, Falcons, Eagles, Cowboys and Chargers.
What would the Broncos do with the No. 8 pick? With four almost certain first-round quarterbacks in this spring’s selection process, the idea of yet again looking for the next franchise quarterback would have to be at least discussed.
BYU’s Zach Wilson or Trey Lance out of North Dakota State could be available with this pick. The Broncos could also look to land one of the draft’s best cornerback prospects such as Caleb Farley or Jaycee Horn.
Where the Broncos end up selecting in the first round remains to be seen, but because there are some really bad teams around the league this year, they likely won’t get into the top five picks unless they make a move to trade up.
If you want to be a lot more optimistic than I was with these picks and say the Broncos win out and finish 8-8, the team would be looking at a pick in the second half of the first round, which would likely take a quarterback off the table, unless they wanted to take a shot on Florida’s Kyle Trask.
There is still a lot of football to be played and several things can still change.
