2017 NFL mock draft database: Denver Broncos need a left tackle

New, comments

Everyone knows what the Denver Broncos biggest need is, so everyone is pretty much mocking that position to them in the first round.

Here’s your final edition of a mock draft database for the 2017 NFL Draft. I did one about a month ago that was fairly evenly split between a handful of players. That mock draft database top three looked like this:

  1. Ryan Ramczyk - 10
  2. Garett Bolles - 6
  3. Christian McCaffrey - 4

However, with just days remaining before the draft, McCaffrey has pretty much completely moved off the board for the Denver Broncos. He just won’t make it all the way to the 20s. Not anymore.

It is now entirely all about the offensive line.

  1. Ryan Ramczyk - 12
  2. Cam Robinson - 5
  3. Garett Bolles - 4
  4. Forrest Lamp - 4

Out of 31 mock drafts, that is 25 that are mocking an offensive lineman to the Broncos at #20. Unless something crazy happens (trades!), you should expect John Elway to sit tight and draft a lineman or possible trade back and still get a lineman.

Two more days!

SB Nation has been keeping an even larger collection of mock drafts, which solidifies what we are seeing above in our collection of mocks. The Broncos are taking a tackle if mock drafters have their way.
