Denver Broncos mock draft: Loading up on defensive talent early
Denver Broncos mock draft, fourth-round picks
4a. Wan’Dale Robinson, WR, Kentucky
After going with three straight picks on the defensive side of the ball to open up this mock draft scenario, the Broncos go with their first offensive player here on day three and it’s a doozy.
Wan’Dale Robinson, one of the most exciting playmakers in college football last season, joins a tremendous group of receivers in Denver and gives the Broncos an option not only offensively but also in the return game.
Although he’s only 5-foot-8, 178 pounds, Robinson in the fourth round would be outstanding depth and valuable insurance for KJ Hamler in case he isn’t back to full speed at the start of the season.
Even if Hamler is at full strength, Robinson gives the Denver Broncos yet another weapon to utilize offensively that can create in space.
4b. Jelani Woods, TE, Virginia
Although a variety of tight ends were considered throughout this mock draft process, the idea of Jelani Woods and his athleticism in the fourth round is still simply too good to pass up on.
Mock draft simulators almost always have Woods available at this selection, and Broncos fans should prepare for the possibility that he goes sooner because of his freakish size and athletic talent.
If he’s available in round four, the good news for the Broncos is that they have back-to-back picks here and can go any direction they want.
