The Denver Broncos own the tenth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft in April after a disappointing 6-10 finish in 2018.
After some initial confusion about the possibility of a coin flip with the Buffalo Bills to determine which team would draft ninth, Denver’s strength of victory means they will select after Buffalo.
President of football operations/general manager John Elway and the Broncos’ new head coach will have the chance to land a second stud rookie after taking defensive end Bradley Chubb with the fifth overall pick in 2018.
With a weak quarterback class and many teams drafting before the Broncos in need of pass rushers, the Broncos could see one of the top cornerbacks, offensive tackles or inside linebackers fall to tenth.
In the last five years, the tenth overall pick has yielded Josh Rosen (QB, Arizona Cardinals, 2018), Patrick Mahomes (QB, Kansas City Chiefs, 2017), Eli Apple (CB, New York Giants, 2016), Todd Gurley (RB, St Louis Rams, 2015), Eric Ebron (TE, Detroit Lions, 2014).
The 2019 NFL Draft will take place in Nashville, Tennessee for the first time from April 25-27.
Broncos Europe will once again be joining our friends Gridiron & Gravy at their annual NFL Draft party at the Brotherhood of Pastimes and Pursuits in Manchester for the second night of the draft in April.
The usual format is to replay day one of the draft before going live at midnight for day two.
