As we all know, the Denver Broncos are heading into the NFL Draft holding the No. 10 overall selection in the first round. Once again coming off a very disappointing season, the Broncos are in prime position to select a blue-chip prospect at the top of the Draft to help upgrade the roster.
Whether that player is a quarterback like Missouri’s Drew Lock — a player that has a lot of buzz linking him to the Broncos — or an elite defensive prospect like LSU linebacker Devin White — remains to be seen.
Another thing that we don’t know is whether John Elway and the Broncos will be staying at pick 10 this year. It’s still too early in the process to properly gauge trade interest among teams, especially considering that we haven’t even seen the results of the NFL Combine yet.
But given the interests and needs the Broncos have, we can start building possible trade scenarios that fit both parties, in either a trade up or trade down from No. 10 overall. Today, we’re going to break down a couple of viable scenarios in which the Broncos could look to move up, stay at No. 10, or move down in the first round of the NFL Draft.
