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.
