The Broncos have been insanely active in free agency, picking up premium players to both bolster the defense and keep the offense firing on all cylinders. John Elway and John Fox want to win now, and it's been obvious with every move that they've made.
The draft is, of course, usually about the future. It's about building the team. Clubs that win consistently tend to be the ones that draft well.
While the Broncos do have to keep that in mind, they also have to remember that they're throwing all of their chips on the table for the next three years. This draft has to have that sort of impact.
When looking at the best-case scenarios, the things to keep in mind are:
1. Instant impact to the team.
2. Filling a need.
3. The value of the pick.
Are the Broncos going to be able to get everyone they want in the draft? Certainly not. That never happens for any team, much less one that is picking so late. If they can get some of these guys, though, it would be an incredible haul, and that has to be the goal as they go into draft day.
