Bucking The System- Denver Broncos 2023 Draft Profile

There has been a paradigm shift in Denver, and the Broncos could be a better team because of it. Sean Payton and company come into this draft with limited resources and a lot of needs. Though the algorithm says they won’t come out of this with much they can if they manipulate the board properly.

Durell Nchami, Edge, Maryland

Myles Brooks, CB, Louisiana Tech

Donovan Jennings, Tackle, South Florida

The Denver Broncos need to strengthen their pass rush heading into this season. Randy Gregory needs a running mate and with a deep pass rush class they can find a productive prospect.

Durell Nchami wasn’t the most productive player in college but he possesses traits that translate to the next level. His long arms and powerful active hands allow him to set a strong edge. He has above average speed-to-power ability and can drive tackles to shrink the pocket.

In a division where the Kansas City Chiefs and L.A. Chargers reside, you need multiple good corners. Myles Brooks possesses all the traits of a man to man corner. He has a large frame with good musculature that allows him to play press effectively and disrupt routes. He plays with great vision and anticipation as well which helps when playing in zone coverage. Pairing him with Patrick Surtain II would give the Broncos a young duo for years to come.

Versatile lineman has been a theme around the league. The Broncos made some additions in the offseason but could use more bodies. Donovan Jennings is a tackle that has traits that will allow him to play either guard to outside. He has a good technique and hand placement, with good burst off the ball. His athleticism allows him to get up on the second level on run plays or slide with pass rushers in pass protection as well. He may not start immediately but he can be a Swiss Army knife on a team in need of offensive line depth.

The odds say that the Broncos won’t have much to work with with no picks early on. They can buck the system and change their fortunes by targeting these names and come out winners on draft weekend.
