Horse Tracks: Merry Draft Day!

New, comments

Good Morning Broncos Country!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The 2015 NFL Draft finally kicks off tonight as the first round will be finalized. Who do you think the Broncos will pick in the first round? It could be a number of offensive linemen, defensive linemen and possibly an inside linebacker or edge rusher.

Allbright has been on the Malcom Brown train for awhile, but I don't see it happening. He's probably a top 20 to 25 pick and will be off the board by the time the Broncos pick. Cameron Erving has been the popular pick, but again I think he'll be long gone. Benardrick McKinney won't be the popular pick, but it's the most likely of this group.

Mike Klis of 9NEWS lists 13 players who he believes the Broncos will consider in the first round of the draft.

  1. Cameron Erving, OT-C
  2. La'el Collins, G/OT
  3. Ereck Flowers, OT
  4. Andrus Peat, OT
  5. Jake Fisher, OT
  6. T.J. Clemmings, OT
  7. D.J. Humphries, OT
  8. Benardrick McKinney, ILB
  9. Danny Shelton, DT
  10. Malcom Brown, DT
  11. Jordan Phillips, DT
  12. Randy Gregory, Edge
  13. Breshard Perrimen
Klis lists six offensive lineman, one center, one inside linebacker, three defensive tackles, one edge rusher, and surprisingly one receiver.
