Next years' draft picks (currently)


My philosophy is that it's never too early to think about next years' draft.  How many picks do the Broncos have?  Which rounds are they in?  Answers after the jump.

According to the Denver Post, our current 2011 lineup looks like this:

First round: One pick.

Second round: Two picks. The additional pick came from Miami in the Brandon Marshall deal.

Third round: One pick.

Fourth round: No picks. It was sent to New England for Maroney.

Fifth round: No picks. Sent to Tampa Bay for right to move up and draft Syd'Quan Thompson and Jammie Kirlew.

Sixth round: Two picks. One from the Pats in Maroney deal, one in trade with Detroit for tight end Dan Gronkowski. The team sent its own pick to Cleveland for Brady Quinn.

Seventh round: No picks. Sent to Detroit for Gronkowski.

So, four picks in the first three rounds, but only two sixths thereafter.  Top heavy, which is a good thing, but not much ammunition for moving around, which as we all know McX love to do.  This year's draft was exceptionally deep, in part because of the looming possibility of a lockout in 2011.  As a result, next year's draft should be shallower than usual, so being top heavy puts us in a good position to get some value.  2011 may not have the same impact as 2010, but we can still reasonably expect to pick up a couple of starters (D line and ILB, anyone?) and some reserve depth (O line, TE and RB, perhaps?  Thoughts?
