Denver Broncos 2021 Mock Draft: New defensive weapon heads to Mile High
Here, we add offensive line depth with a guy that has the ability to play right tackle, as well as left tackle and right guard but is expected to play guard in the NFL. However, you can expect him to first spend some time on a practice squad.
Another very tall lineman, standing at 6-foot-8 and weighing 335 pounds.
I’m not sure if Eiland will ever become a consistent backup but there might be something there with him. His versatility is crucial.
Duke’s Noah Gray is a 6-foot-3, 240-pound tight end who I would view as a potential red-zone target. Unfortunately, he does not do much in terms of yards after the catch.
That being said, I think that he could be a nice developmental prospect and potentially get some time in as a third tight end for the Denver Broncos.
South Dakota State wide receiver Cade Johnson might just be a late-round steal.
I understand that the Denver Broncos don’t necessarily need more wide receivers at the moment, and Johnson likely wouldn’t make much of an impact right off the bat, but his tremendous route running is just too good for me to pass up here.
He kind of reminds me of K.J. Hamler when it comes to route running. Not quite as good, but still very good in my opinion.
Despite playing just two seasons at South Dakota State, Johnson recorded 67 receptions in 2018 for 1,332 yards and (count ‘em) 17 touchdowns. SEVENTEEN touchdowns.
The next year, he caught 72 passes for 1,222 yards and eight touchdowns.
Wherever he ends up, he might be a fun player to follow.
Jaimes played both guard and tackle at Nebraska, which is a huge bonus as a late-round pick. He will have a chance to make the roster as a reserve lineman…
Denver Broncos NFL Draft: 1st-rounders George Paton saw at pro days
Which top 2021 NFL Draft prospects have Denver Broncos general manager George Paton made the trip to see in person at pro days?
At least at the beginning of his career. Eventually, there could be a shot at him finding a significant role in the league and might turn out to be a better option than, say, Graham Glasgow.
