Ranking the Denver Broncos’ top five NFL Draft picks in the 2010s.
The Denver Broncos have found a couple of different ways to build Super Bowl contending teams throughout the 2010s.
Coming off the heels of the terrible Josh McDaniels tenure in 2009-10, John Elway took the team over in 2011 and started making personnel decisions that would ultimately help the team to its third Super Bowl title in franchise history.
Even though the majority of Elway’s most notable moves have come in free agency, the Denver Broncos have some tremendous draft selections to highlight throughout the 2010s decade and a lot of really good players who aren’t going to make the list.
Players like Courtland Sutton and Bradley Chubb among the Broncos’ most recent draft classes aren’t quite at the point it takes to make a list like this, though they could certainly someday be among the top three.
An honorable mention of the Broncos’ best draft picks from the 2010s could include players like center Matt Paradis, tight end Julius Thomas, wide receiver Eric Decker, and defensive lineman Malik Jackson. Heck, a top-five of the top snubs could borderline rival the list of the actual top five players we picked for this list, a testament to the fact that the Broncos have had some really great draft picks in the last decade.
But which five were the best? Let’s take a look at the top five Denver Broncos draft choices from the 2010s decade (so far).
