The Denver Broncos stood firm through the fourth and fifth rounds until their first pick on Day 3 came around early in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft where they selected Boise State safety JL Skinner with the 183rd overall pick.
He is a big safety at 6’4”, 210 pounds. Dane Brugler had him ranked in the third round, but a torn pec likely hurt his draft stock. That helped the Broncos snag him here in the early sixth. Looking over his college highlights shows a guy whose game could translate well at the NFL level.
He is a ball hawk in coverage and a complete bruiser hitting guys in the open field. This is a guy who could be really fun to watch on the field in Denver.
From the Broncos to the Broncos. Welcome to Denver!
