The Denver Broncos have to do whatever necessary to protect their potential franchise quarterback Drew Lock. Here’s a 2020 mock draft scenario for them.
The Denver Broncos currently have nine selections in the 2020 NFL Draft and are expected to receive three more compensatory picks, one in the fifth round and two in the seventh round.
With potentially as many as 12 selections in the upcoming draft as well as a lot of cap space to play with, currently with nearly $62 million.
With that amount of draft capital and cap space, the Broncos are in a position to get their roster to a place where it’s reasonable to assume they will contend, if for nothing else a wild card spot.
Drew Lock showed really well over the last five weeks of the season, helping lead the team to a 4-1 record with some impressive victories considering the state of the Broncos’ roster with injuries and the fact that the team had traded one of its best offensive weapons in Emmanuel Sanders.
Where do the Broncos go from here? How is John Elway going to improve his roster?
There will be a lot of change between now and the 2020 NFL Draft as far as this team’s needs, but let’s take a look at a mock draft scenario for Denver in which they place an emphasis on protecting Lock as well as putting more playmakers around him on offense.
