Anything can happen in the NFL Draft. The Denver Broncos are close to having their draft plans finalized. Picking 31st in the draft can be a bit nerve-racking because the team fears that some of their top picks will be taken before they go on the clock.
Here are some scenarios that could make things worse for the Broncos during the events of day one.
While the addition of Aqib Talib helps the defense, the Broncos could still press for some young talent in the draft at the corner position. The team more than likely won't look until day two for a corner. Drafting a cornerback wouldn't be a bad thing, but the only reason I see them drafting a corner is if their bigger needs are drafted before their turn.
Because the Broncos pick 31st Overall, most of the great talent will most likely be gone. If their targets are gone, they should focus on drafting someone who at best would go early in round two if they do not have any other options instead of wasting it on a player who the team could draft later on.
If the prospects the Broncos are looking at are gone by the time they pick, there could still be a solid player the team could draft. The last thing the Broncos need is to trade with another team and give them another pick in the first round where other talented players are available.
The main focus for the Broncos on day one will be the offensive line or defense if necessary. They cannot afford to spend a pick on a wideout or a running back. If they need to draft one, they could easily find that prospect on day two or even day three. No need to waste it on the first round.
Most mock drafts have the Broncos drafting the talented offensive guard in the first round. He would be a huge boost to the line. If he is drafted before the Broncos pick, they could be in a very tricky situation as to who to draft. Should they go defense or go for the second-best offensive guard?
