Denver Broncos: Aaron Rodgers and other post-draft moves to make
From my perspective, Denver Broncos first-year general manager George Paton knocked it out of the part in the 2021 NFL Draft. That being said, I was never “team quarterback”, unless it was Trey Lance. It was to my knowledge the Denver Broncos wouldn’t have a shot at drafting Lance, as he was the 49ers’ guy entering the night of the draft’s first round.
In a haul that included a couple of cornerbacks and safeties, as well as an edge rusher, defensive lineman, and linebacker on the defensive side of the ball, the Denver Broncos filled the depth chart out quite well. With the remaining three picks, the Denver Broncos selected an interior offensive lineman, running back, and wide receiver.
The following players drafted by pick were:
- 1 (9). Pat Surtain II, Cornerback, Alabama
- 2 (35). Javonte Williams, Runningback, North Carolina
- 3. (98). Quinn Meinerz, Offensive Lineman, Wisconsin-Whitewater (DIII)
- 3 (105). Baron Browning, Linebacker, Ohio State
- 5 (152). Caden Sterns, Safety, Texas
- 5 (164). Jamar Johnson, Safety, Indiana
- 6 (219). Seth Williams, Wide Receiver, Auburn
- 7 ( 237). Kary Vincent Jr., Cornerback, LSU
- 7 (239). Jonathon Cooper, Edge, Ohio State
- 7 (252). Marquiss Spencer, Defensive End, Mississippi State
Post-draft, what position groups still need to be addressed? Are there any players via free agency or trade that the Denver Broncos could chase?
