3 nightmare moves Broncos division rivals could make in 2022 NFL Draft
The Denver Broncos don’t have a ton to worry about heading into the 2022 NFL Draft, but what would be some nightmare picks or moves from division rivals?
The Denver Broncos have had about as ideal of an offseason as you can have in 2022.
They hired a new (offensive-minded) head coach in Nathaniel Hackett who is going to dramatically change the vibe around the team facility.
They made a blockbuster trade to acquire Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks.
Even though Davante Adams, Khalil Mack, and JC Jackson have joined the division, the Broncos, Chargers, and Raiders were all able to say goodbye to Tyreek Hill, which is another victory.
On top of all of that, the Broncos have made a number of other additions to the roster putting this team in a position to truly contend in 2022.
Again, the offseason almost couldn’t have been more ideal up to this point. With that being said, what moves would be of the “nightmare” variety from the Broncos’ AFC West foes looking ahead to next week’s NFL Draft?

Drafting Garrett Wilson, Chris Olave, or Jameson Williams
Initially, I figured this list could be limited to just someone like Garrett Wilson, but I think any of these receiver options that bring speed to the table for the Chargers would be slightly terrifying for the Denver Broncos.
The Broncos have one of the better cornerback duos in the NFL in Pat Surtain II and Ronald Darby. K’Waun Williams is also a very solid nickel. With that said, not many cornerback trios could deal for four quarters with Justin Herbert throwing to Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and one of these guys.
Especially when you factor in the element of speed here, adding one of these dynamic weapons at receiver could add a whole new dimension to an already difficult-to-defend Chargers offense.
