Denver Broncos
ROUND OVERALL PLAYER NOTES
1 5 Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State
2 40 Austin Corbett, G/C, Nevada
3 71 D.J. Chark, WR, LSU
3 99 Isaac Yiadom, CB, Boston College Compensatory
4 106 Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon

4 113 Marquis Haynes, OLB, Ole Miss from WAS
5 149 Chris Herndon, TE, Miami from WAS
5 160 Traded to Houston from LAR
6 177 Oren Burks, ILB, Vanderbilt from HOU
6 211 Jester Weah, WR, Pittsburgh from HOU

With four QBs off the board, the Broncos have a decision to make: Bradley Chubb or Saquon Barkley? I've mocked Barkley to them in the past, but ultimately the pull of pairing Chubb with Von Miller may be too much to go in another direction. Shaquil Barrett's a free agent after 2018, and Shane Ray's option shouldn't be picked up. Chubb also gives the team a premier pass-rusher on the off chance Miller becomes too expensive to keep down the road. But for however long Chubb and Miller play together, they should be a dynamic pass-rushing duo.

The Broncos grab an underrated interior line prospect in the second round in Corbett, who could end up starting immediately at left guard. Chark is a tall and fast weapon for Case Keenum, and a potential starter in 2019 depending on what the team does with its big-money recevers. Yiadom can be a special-teams ace initially who can eventually develop into Aqib Talib's replacement.

Freeman is a quality No. 2 back to pair with Devontae Booker. Haynes brings more pass rush help long-term and could allow the team to cut bait with the disappointing Ray immediately. Herndon is another dart throw at tight end who might develop into a starter. At No. 160, the Broncos trade back with Houston before taking inside linebacker depth in Burks at No. 177 and another big-and-fast receiver in Weah at No. 211.

Yep. I like Hamilton over Clark. Jewel over Haynes. Fumagalli over Herndon. And Bierria over Burks.
