Tis the season for mock drafts and ESPN’s Todd McShay wasted little time sending the Denver Broncos a playmaker with the 15th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb fits the playmaker build in ever sense of the word.
15. Denver Broncos
CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
I liked what I saw out of quarterback Drew Lock at the end of last season, and Denver might want to think about getting him some help along the offensive line or at wide receiver. And wouldn’t you know it, Lamb is the best available player still on the board. He gets great separation and then creates yardage after the catch. Opposite Courtland Sutton — who continues to look like the real deal — Lamb brings another piece of the offensive puzzle to Mile High. But there’s also concern in the secondary, where Chris Harris Jr. and Justin Simmons are set to enter free agency. Florida corner CJ Henderson, LSU safety Grant Delpit and Alabama safety Xavier McKinney deserve more than a passing thought at No. 15.
Lamb had back-to-back monster seasons at Oklahoma with a 127 receptions for 2483 yards and 25 touchdowns over those two years. He was a big play receiver all season long averaging a healthy 21.4 yards per reception last year.
Pairing Lamb opposite Courtland Sutton could give the Broncos some big play opportunities for Drew Lock in 2020. I’d definitely be down to see Denver select Lamb with the 15th overall pick if he were still available.
Would you like to see the Broncos draft CeeDee Lamb if available at 15?
