The 2020 NFL Draft has finally arrived. The Denver Broncos pick fifteenth overall and have plenty of draft capital to make some moves, so it should be an exciting couple of days for Broncos Country. Here are all of the nuts and bolts of the NFL Draft the help you know when and what is going to happen.

How to watch the 2020 NFL Draft live?

All public events have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak that is still ongoing and continues to take lives across the world. The NFL announced weeks ago that they would host the NFL Draft virtually at every level. It will be a made-for-TV style event where NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will announce the picks after teams make their selections digitally.

Where will Denver Broncos NFL Draft coverage be?

There will be a couple of ways to keep up to date on Broncos coverage. The obvious one would be Twitter, but if you are looking for more in-depth conversation there will likely be plenty of Broncos talk here on the site. Look for our live updates posts each day.

MHR Live

Mile High Report will be live on Twitch the first two nights with our Cover 2 Broncos podcast team of Jeff Essary and Joe Rowles on hand to analyze the picks and talk Broncos draft with fans. Please download the Twitch app and follow MHR_Live to join the discussion there. These two have looked at countless hours of tape and analysis of every prospect that the Broncos could be interested in for these first three rounds. Hope to see you there!

While I love that our Cover 2 Broncos team will be live with analysis and coverage, the Broncos main site has also setup a Broncos Virtual War Room for fans. This looks interesting enough to me that if I find the time I’ll be checking it out on draft night. If anything its worth visiting to enter to win a signed helmet by the entire Broncos 2020 draft class.

What are the Broncos biggest draft needs?

Earlier this week, I reviewed our FanPulse poll from early March that identified offensive line as the teams biggest need, but that fan sentiment has definitely shifted. The poll I ran in that post and the FanPulse survey we ran this week confirmed that wide receiver is where its at in this draft.
