With the Superbowl out of the way, we now have a tentative draft order to follow along with. This chart will be updated again at the combine (when they do the coin flips for teams tied at certain spots), and then again if any trades occur after March 5th. It will also be updated once the compensatory picks are released at the owner's meetings in March, which is why I list our 4th through 7th round picks as being "-ish".
Currently the Broncos are sitting on 6 picks in the 2010 draft, which will be very tough to meet all our current needs with.
- 1st Round, pick #10/11 overall
- 2nd Round, pick # 45 overall
- 3rd Round, pick #80 overall
- 4th Round, pick #111ish overall (#116ish after comp. picks added)
- 6th Round, pick #173ish overall (#187ish after comp. picks added)
- 7th Round, pick #204ish overall (#222ish after comp. picks added)
Below the fold you will find the latest version of the 2010 chart, with the Broncos picks highlighted, a detailed markup of all the trades to date that involved draft picks, and a downloadable PDF version of the chart for easier printing.

[Editor's Note: superscript on the right of each pick is the overall pick number, superscript on the left of each pick refers to its number below in "Predraft Trades", italics represent picks that may swap order based on a coinflip, and struck out red picks are forfeited.]
