    Default NFL draft order - 2018

    Okay, so we're 3-5 and likely headed for 3-6 after Brady has his way with us on Sunday night. Despite word that we'll be trying to win the division as long as it's mathematically possible, it seems very likely we're headed for a bad season and therefore a high draft pick. This handy website lists and constantly updates the draft order for 2018. As of today, we would have the 9th pick. Since this team doesn't often have bad seasons, that's not a spot we're used to being. The last time we had a really high draft pick, of course, was when we selected Von Miller. If we finish with a top ten pick, we should have our pick of mostly anyone, either by virtue of good players still being there or by moving up to get our next QB. Who does everyone want?

    Sam Darnold if he declares.

    Top priority is Right Tackle. (OT Mike McGlinchey from Notre Dame)

    Then... draft QB Lamar Jackson from Louisville.

    DE, ILB, and FS.

    tankathon... lol nice. Took at look at the NHL one as well, looks like the Edmonton OilTankers are right on path as well.

    Is Baker Mayfield not in this years draft?

    Don't know where he is projected to get picked but I would love to see the Broncos get Braxton Berrios. He's going to the be Welker type slot receiver / returner... will probably see the Patriots pick him.

    He'll be there, but scouts are divided on him right now. I'm pretty high on Mayfield - that's the guy I want, actually. I'd like Darnold, but I'm not even sure he comes out and I don't know if he'd be worth a ransom to move up and get.

    If they decide Darnold is can't miss they should pay whatever price it takes.

    This is true. I've already said we need to overspend on the QB position this year - get a FA and use our first pick on one if they love a guy.

    Maybe Darnold can break the cycle of overrated USC QBs that come into the NFL. I believe Palmer is the only decent one to come out in a long time.
    why you so serious!

    With this offensive line, Lamar Jackson makes the most sense.
    I miss the old Mile High Stadium.

    As of now, the Broncos would be 8th, but that will "improve" with further expected losses. The real problem is going to be getting a top 5 pick in order to acquire a franchise QB when about 10 other teams all want the same QBs, and the Broncos are unlikely to get one of the top 3 picks.

    10th pick - Chicago Bears NFC 3-5
    9th pick - Cincinnati Bengals AFC 3-5
    8th pick - Denver Broncos AFC 3-5 Denver picks ahead of the Bears and Bengals based on tie-breaking procedures like conference record and strength of schedule. Of course the Broncos play the Bengals in 2 weeks, so the loser of that game will probably have the tie-breaker.
    7th pick - Houston Texans AFC 3-5
    6th pick - Los Angeles Chargers AFC 3-5
    5th pick - Indianapolis Colts AFC 3-6 (Broncos play the Colts too)
    4th pick - Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFC 2-6
    3rd pick - New York Giants NFC 1-7 (Broncos already lost to the Giants, but they have only 1 win)
    2nd pick - Cleveland Browns AFC 0-8
    1st pick - San Francisco 49ers NFC 0-9
    The Broncos could lose out, finish 3-13 and still have no better than the #3 overall pick, in a draft where some draft experts expect the top 3 players to be QBs. This doesn't take into account that the 49ers are almost certainly going to get one of the top 2 picks, but they just traded a 2nd round pick in 2018 for QB Jimmy Garapollo. So, if they took a QB with their pick that would be their top 2 picks for QBs - on a roster that needs at least 11 new starters, and probably about 15.

    Depending on where the Broncos wind up, they would have to move up in the draft.

    How much would that cost? Take a look at the draft value chart.

    32 590 64 270 96 116 128 44 160 27.4 192 14.6 224 2
    So, for the Broncos to move up from #8 to #3, for example, would cost around 2200 - 1400 = 800 points. So, it would take the Broncos 1st and 2nd round picks, plus something to equal about 300 more points, which would be the Broncos #3 pick, or else some equivalent in players etc.

    In short, it would take a lot. To move up from outside the top 10 is often not even possible because the trading team does not want to move down too far. Of course, the trade value chart isn't totally exact, but teams do use it as a starting point in negotiations.

    The cost would be exorbitantly high, but what choice do they have? Elway has tried repeatedly to find a QB, and every time he fails it costs the team another 2 years in the wilderness with no playoff appearances. They need a DeShaun Watson or Derek Carr or Dak Prescott or Russell Wilson on this roster - just to name QBs the Broncos could have possibly drafted but didn't.

    The draft of Paxton Lynch was supposed to provide a franchise QB for the next 10 years but didn't as Paxton is a bust.

    They would be able to get a Lamar Jackson in that range.

    Jeremiah Briscoe would be a QB to look for in a later round

    The Broncos can't waste any more seasons getting "later round" QBs who are "overlooked" and therefore cheap. They have lots of "developmental QBs" who can't play dead in a western, (Trevor, Brock, Paxton) and NO franchise QBs. They need an absolute, can't miss, blue-chip QB, or the closest thing they can get to him. And no more time can be spent on "coaching up" some random dude like Trevor who nobody outside Denver ever expected to do anything or waiting endlessly for Paxton "to be ready."

    They should get a pretty good look at Paxton after the next two losses to the Pats and Bengals. Unless he suddenly starts looking like a healthy Andrew Luck, forget it. Move on and start compiling draft picks so you can move up in the draft and get a top QB prospect.

    After all, what else do they need? They can get a RT in FA. They already have their LT in Bolles. They could use a TE but they have Jake Butt coming off IR next year. They could use an inside LB but that's the kind of player you can get in the 2nd, same thing for CB. As for RBs they are something you can find in later rounds OK.

    Especially this is true if the Broncos get a top 6 pick, which means they would have a high pick in every round.

    I donít like any of these quarterbacks in the top 3, especially if Eway is making the pick. Now, if he goes defense or OT Iíll be very optimistic we have an impact player on our hands

    and that's why I mentioned the other guys in previous posts... now wipe that foam from your mouth. BTW... what is wrong with grabbing a QB in later rounds as well as trying to get your stud early? Briscoe could be a wasted late pick but he could also be the next Wentz... who knows.
