Broncos can secure a top ten pick in the 2019 NFL Draft with loss

New, comments

After the early games came to completion, we now know the Denver Broncos can secure a Top 10 draft pick with a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Update: Broncos draft order will be decided by a coin flip with the Bills for the 9th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Denver Broncos needed at least two 5-10 teams to win their games and a few 6-9 teams to win theirs for them to sneak into a Top 10 draft pick for the 2019 NFL Draft. Both happened with the Buffalo Bills winning their game and both the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers winning theirs.

It’s hard to root for losses, but if you are one of those fans who has already moved on to the 2019 offseason then you’ll want to see the Broncos come out with a loss against the Los Angeles Chargers so they can secure a much higher draft pick. A win would knock them all the way back to potentially the 16th pick.

Either way, this fan isn’t going to rage on anyone either way. If you root for a loss today, I’ll understand and if you think the Broncos should always win, I also understand. However, the difference in talent between the 10th pick and the 16th pick is often staggering and worth discussing.
