The 2022 NFL Draft is finally upon us. After a long offseason that offered plenty of excitement for Broncos Country, the icing on the cake in the draft is here. While there are many prospects on here that the Broncos won’t be in on, there are plenty that they will be.

I’m thrilled to be able to publish this here on Mile High Report. I just want to note that these are solely my OWN grades and are not reflective of other Mile High Report writers or the website as a whole. Feel free to use this as a reference throughout the draft for your team and/or the Broncos.

One last clarification on the grades. A “1A” is what I consider to be a true first-round grade. These guys all graded with a 45 or higher out of 50 on my grading scale. 1B is the next tier and each graded close enough to that mark for me to feel comfortable taking them in round one.

Note: I didn’t add specialists because I’m still working on a matching grading scale for them. That being said, Jordan Stout is the best punter in the class.

Without further ado, my top-300 big board:
