2014 NFL Mock Draft: Who should the Broncos draft at 31?

New, comments

The MHR 2014 NFL mock draft is almost complete. There are two picks left. If you were Denver Broncos GM, given this scenario, who would you pick?

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The 2014 Mile High Report Community Mock Draft has nearly reached its conclusion. Tomorrow, Denver Broncos GM jmarlin8 will choose for all of Broncos Country. He's already made his choice. "The pick is in," as they say on ESPN or NFL Network. Check for it at 9am MDT Wednesday.

But let's open it up to the MHR community to see who we all would pick!

The Broncos' pick was almost too easy - LB C.J. Mosley fell to the 30th spot, and it looked like he would then fall to the Broncos at 31. Great value meets great need to make a great pick. Instead, 49ers GM frankencrank surprised everyone and took him at 30, leaving the Broncos with a different outlook of their board.

Now here we sit, and there's no easy pick. Some of the most common guys mock-drafted to the Broncos - Mosley, Ryan Shazier, Kony Ealy - are all gone.

Below are the results of the MHR Mock Draft to date. Below that are the top five available according to a massive project MHR Staffer Topher Doll undertook - a Big Board database that combines and averages the big boards from the likes of SB Nation, CBS, Yahoo!, and more. We'll be publishing that in its entirety tomorrow as well.
