6. Tommy Doyle, OT, Miami (OH)

The Broncos like developmental offensive tackle Calvin Anderson and got him some valuable reps in the 2020 season, starting a pair of games.

With Ja’Wuan James back for the 2021 season and Anderson expected back as the swing tackle, the Broncos’ need for a tackle will depend on what the team determines about James’ future beyond this season.

At this point, Tommy Doyle would be a nice developmental prospect for offensive line coach Mike Munchak to try and mold into a future swing or starter type.

7a. Tre Norwood, DB, Oklahoma

With big-time speed and versatility, Norwood would help add some depth to the Broncos’ secondary. Specifically, at safety, this team needs to add some bodies.

7b. Noah Gray, TE, Duke

Although they have Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam solidified as the top two players at this position, the Broncos could look to add some depth late in the 2021 NFL Draft at tight end and Noah Gray showed well at Senior Bowl practices this year.

He could be an intriguing late-round flyer option as a pass-catching tight end.

7c. Wyatt Hubert, EDGE, Kansas State

Hubert had some dominant reps at the 2021 Senior Bowl practices and he was productive at Kansas State. He would be a good player to bring in and compete with 2020 seventh-round pick Derrek Tuszka for a roster spot.
