An opinion formed based on assumption, not actual experience, is called prejudice. Here, what we know goes head-to-head with what we do not know.

MHR Live: Grade Pending

rue to the denial that John Elway made regarding the Denver Broncos rebuilding, the team made it through seven rounds of the NFL draft without drafting a starting guard, cornerback, nor a quarterback. Denver did draft: two wide receivers, two running backs, two inside linebackers, an outside linebacker, cornerback, guard and a tight end. During the draft — according to the NFL owned NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport — Denver made an offer to trade all of the way forward to the second overall pick with the New York Giants. Elway later denied this report to KUSA’s Mike Klis, because you can’t have your fanbase thinking that you moved for Sam Darnold and missed... Klis did point out that Darnold, Saquon Barkley and Bradley Chubb were at the top of the Broncos draft board. However, Monday presents Broncos fans with the ‘What if?’ scenario of Darnold being on the roster instead of Chubb. Denver would have likely had to trade their second and third round picks for Darnold, which would mean no Courtland Sutton or Royce Freeman. We arrive at an oncoming season with Case Keenum penciled in to start and competition at backup between Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly who has been out of football practice for over a year. What we do know is that the Buffalo Bills had an offer with the Broncos that would have given Denver a 2018 first round pick and two second round picks. Those picks would later be revealed to be: #12, #53 and #56 (DT Vita Vea, CB M.J. Stewart and CB Duke Johnson (traded from Tampa Bay to New England)). What we still do not know is who will start at cornerback, running back, tight end or right guard for the 2018 Denver Broncos. What we do know is who is on notice: Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Brandon Marshall, Todd Davis, Devontae Booker, Jeff Heuerman and of course, most of the Denver Broncos 2017 draft class: DeMarcus Walker, Carlos Henderson, Brendan Langley, Isaiah McKenzie and De’Angelo Henderson.

True to John Elway’s denial regarding the Denver Broncos’ rebuilding, the team made it through seven rounds of the NFL draft without drafting a starting guard, cornerback, or a quarterback.

This is what Denver did draft: two wide receivers, two running backs, two inside linebackers, an outside linebacker, a cornerback, a guard and a tight end.

During the draft—according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport—Denver made an offer to trade all the way forward to the second overall pick with the New York Giants. Elway later denied this report to KUSA’s Mike Klis, because you can’t have your fanbase thinking that you moved for Sam Darnold and missed...

What we still do not know is who will start at cornerback, running back, tight end or right guard for the 2018 Denver Broncos.

What we do know is who is on notice: Demaryius Thomas, Shane Ray, Emmanuel Sanders, Brandon Marshall, Todd Davis, Devontae Booker, Jeff Heuerman. Of course, most of the Denver Broncos 2017 draft class is also on notice: DeMarcus Walker, Carlos Henderson, Brendan Langley, Isaiah McKenzie and De’Angelo Henderson.
