Denver Broncos 2022 mock draft scenario no. 4
Scenario 4: My wife makes the picks
64. Perrion Winfrey, DL, Oklahoma

96. Damone Clark, LB, LSU
115. Braxton Jones, OT, Southern Utah
116. Marcus Jones, CB, Houston
145. Chigoziem Okonkwo, TE, Maryland
206. Verone McKinley, S, Oregon
232. Zachary Thomas, IOL, San Diego State
234. Tre Turner, WR, Virginia Tech
For this exercise, I put my wife behind the wheel of the mock draft simulator and asked her to make all of the picks with absolutely no context.
She utilized the simulator’s projected needs and wrestled with the idea of taking higher-ranked players overall versus filling the needs.
Ultimately, I feel like this is a pretty darn good prediction. At the very least, it would be a great class of picks for the Broncos.
Starting with the top two picks, the Denver Broncos’ defensive front would get a lot of juice from the selections of Perrion Winfrey and Nik Bonitto. I think the defensive line is an underrated area of need for the Broncos right now and could be prioritized higher than many expect.
Even if it’s not atop the priority list, a player like Winfrey could change your priority list.
Damone Clark hasn’t been projected a lot to the Broncos but he has starter upside as a rookie and is another high RAS player at the linebacker position.
Braxton Jones gives the Broncos a developmental tackle and we’ve talked about Marcus Jones a ton. He is the best return man in this year’s draft.
Okonwko in the fifth round is a very intriguing pick and he was one of the guys who really dominated the Scouting Combine in 2022.
The late-round picks add depth and special teams upside.
