2016 NFL Mock Draft: Mike Mayock mocks Karl Joseph to the Broncos

Mike Mayock released his annual mock draft, who did he have the Broncos taking?

Unlike many mock drafters, NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock only releases one mock draft every year. It usually takes place the night before the draft starts.

This year, Mayock has the Broncos taking former West Virginia safety Karl Joseph in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Broncos are set at safety this year with Darian Stewart and T.J. Ward as your starters, but the depth behind those two is shaky at best. Also, Stewart is entering his final year of his contract and T.J. Ward is getting up there in age(turns 30 in December).

Joseph is the best safety in this year's class and Joseph would make Broncos fans very happy. He is a big hitter, an aggressive player, a leader, and a ball hawk in the secondary. He is coming off an ACL injury but should be ready for Training Camp.

Here is Mayock's entire mock draft.
