As the 2013 NFL Draft draws ever nearer, I have finalized my annual 7-Round Denver Broncos Mock Draft. This mock draft has undergone several revisions, largely based on the Broncos' offseason moves.
This season, unlike many in recent history, the Broncos find themselves with the strange but satisfying luxury of having no true "position of need." Certainly, many will point to DE—with the Dumervil snafu this offseason—as the Broncos biggest need. However, even there, as with every other position, the Broncos still have very capable players, with the emergence of Derek Wolfe, and veteran Robert Ayers.
At every position on the field, the Broncos are strictly drafting for depth and competition, having addressed all of their "needs" (with the exception of the Dumervil gaff) through free agency. The Broncos can literally sit back and take the best player on the board, at any position, every round—which is exceptional, and speaks to the caliber of team that John Elway and Co. have crafted in a few short years.
Therefore, this mock has been created straight up, assuming no trades or other movement. Although, given Elway's drafting history, it would not surprise me to see the Broncos trade back out of the first round and accumulate more players, especially if the player they want in the first is no longer available, or if they feel they can fall back to the second, and still get their man.
With no further ado, here is my 2013 full Denver Broncos Mock Draft, for your consideration:
