Micah Parsons a popular pick for Broncos in mock drafts

The Denver Broncos are just outside the quarterback rush in the first round, but just inside the range of picking every other top player at various positions.

NCAA Football: Cotton Bowl Classic-Memphis vs Penn State Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

We’re about to head into April, which means its fully 2021 NFL Draft season. Every now and then I like to pull together a slew of recent NFL Mock Drafts to see what people around the country are thinking the Denver Broncos might pick on draft day.

When I started this, I assumed they would be heavy on the quarterback side of things, but that wasn’t really the case. Sure quarterbacks dominated the list with seven quarterbacks selected for Denver in these mock drafts, however, it was one player that made the list most frequently. That was Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons who made this list eight times.

Alabama quarterback Mac Jones made the list four times, amazingly one of those was with the Broncos second round pick. The other three quarterback selections were Ohio State’s Justin Fields.

With Parsons as the consensus pick for the Broncos at nine, would you be good with that pick?
