NFL Draft Results: Denver Broncos have six picks to play with on day three

The Denver Broncos have had a solid draft through two days, but champions are built from day three. John Elway has an excellent day three track record, so hopefully that trend continues!

After selecting Paxton Lynch in the first round, which cost them both a first and a third round pick, the Denver Broncos took care of their biggest need of the offseason. So on day two, John Elway focused on the defensive side of the ball picking up defensive lineman Adam Gotsis and free safety Justin Simmons.

Those are some quality needs right there, but we should expect another defensive lineman to pair with Gotsis, an inside linebacker and some guys on the offensive side of the ball.
