With the draft concluded, the Broncos will be looking for talented priority free agents.
In this mock draft, they have added players at defensive end, cornerback, wide receiver, outside linebacker, running back, quarterback and inside linebacker.
They could be looking for value plays at other positions, but the Broncos could also add more competition at the positions they’ve already added to.
Some players that might interest them at this point of the process include wide receiver Jeremy Gallon (Michigan), tight end Jordan Najvar (Baylor), offensive guard Ryan Groy (Wisconsin) and outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett (Colorado State).
The player to highlight here is Gallon.
He was a standout player at the East-West Shrine Game earlier this year, and Gallon was able to get open consistently during the week of practice.
He’s incredibly quick, and Gallon can make defenders miss in the open field. He essentially transforms into a running back after the catch, and he has the foot frequency to cut without losing much speed.
In 2013, Gallon proved he could be a threat in the red zone despite his lack of size. Six of his nine touchdowns this year came when the team was close to paydirt. He’s a tough, fearless receiver when running routes over the middle. Gallon can take a hit and hang onto the rock.
The Broncos could use a player like Gallon for wide receiver depth, and he could work as a return man for them.
