According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the NFL has announced that they have awarded 32 compensatory picks to NFL teams earlier today. The Denver Broncos will receive four extra draft picks in the 2017 NFL Draft, a 3rd rounder, 5th rounder, and two 7th round draft picks.

Now the Broncos will have a total of 10 draft picks to use during the 2017 NFL Draft. Also, keep in mind that compensatory picks can now be traded for the first time this year, so this gives Denver Broncos General Manager John Elway some extra ammunition to use if he so chooses this offseason.

One cool note from this is that the Broncos will have the final pick in the 2017 NFL draft(if they do not trade the pick) and will be able to select Mr. Irrelevant(the last prospect drafted in the 7th round).

Here is a full look at the Denver Broncos draft choices in the 2017 NFL Draft.

  1. First Round(Pick 20)
  2. Second Round(Original pick)
  3. Third Round(Original pick)
  4. Third Round(Compensatory pick)
  5. Fourth Round(Original pick)
  6. Fifth Round(Compensatory pick)
  7. Sixth Round(Via Trade)
  8. Seventh Round(Original pick)
  9. Seventh Round (Compensatory pick)
  10. Seventh Round (Compensatory pick)
The exact draft order for rounds two through seven have yet to be officially announced, but should be soon since these compensatory picks have been announced. When they are announced we will have the exact picks for the Denver Broncos in the 2017 NFL Draft.
