The NFL Draft is like Christmas to where teams add new toys to their franchise every single year. A handful of writers were chosen to partake in our yearly Predominantly Orange mock draft. Each person was assigned teams and had a responsibility to choose who they felt was going to be the pick as acting General Manager. In this scenario, it was what we believe will happen and not what we want to have happen, including with the 9th overall pick for the Denver Broncos.

As for the Denver Broncos, there are numerous decisions weighing this franchise as a whole. From the quarterback position to the heir apparent to Von Miller, the Denver Broncos must make a decision whether to put their first stamp on George Paton’s legacy.

Quarterback is one of the few massive storylines this off-season. Drew Lock obviously has the talent to make the impact as a franchise quarterback. However, there are questions he can be the guy long term. With a few options and a top-10 pick, the Broncos are keeping an open mind regarding the position.

The linebacker position is one certainly mentioned with the Denver Broncos’ first-round selection. For full clarification, the mock draft did include trades but only for quarterback-needy teams; however, as the board fell no trades were necessary. With 60-seconds per pick, the mock draft flew by over on the Manely Broncos Podcast.

So who picked who? Let’s get started.
