Good Morning, Broncos Country.

Barring an unsuspected trade that will net a prospective team one of its highest rated players left on their draft board, the Denver Broncos will have the opportunity to do something they have never done in franchise history — select "Mr. Irrelevant" — the last player in taken in the NFL Draft.

While it is unlikely the team will get a potential Pro-Bowler or All-Pro player with the selection, there have been a handful of significant contributors who have had the honor of being the last pick in the draft. For a complete rundown of everyone who has been selected as "Mr. Irrelevant" click here.

Who will the Denver Broncos take with this selection? I have no idea, but stay tuned to Mile High Report and find out who I have them taking in my end of March mock draft that will drop in just a few hours. Brace yourselves, it might just be the longest thing you have read in quite some time.

As always, thanks for reading and enjoy today's installment of Horse Tracks.  Have a great day.
