Positions of need for Denver include defensive end, defensive tackle, middle linebacker, cornerback and running back. On Monday, team executive John Elway indicated that the team will stay put at 28th overall.
"When you look at the depth of this draft, there are a lot of good football players, so as I stand here now, we'll get a good football player there at 28... that's our plan right now. We'll see how things go from here," Elway told the media at Dove Valley during a pre-draft press conference earlier this week (video available at DenverBroncos.com).
Elway went on to note that the draft is a fluid process, so it's hard to project if the Broncos will want to trade down (or up) later this evening. As of this morning, it looks like the Broncos are planning on selecting at the No. 28 spot.
So who are the top prospects to watch? Let's take a look.
