The 2014 NFL draft is fast approaching, and it still doesn't look like there is any way of knowing who is going to go first overall. The uncertainty at the top should make it very interesting to watch, seeing who is going to slide and what players teams are going to reach for because they are desperate.
For Denver Broncos fans, it's something of a relief not to have to pick at the top. It can really be a mess, but the Broncos hold the 31st pick. By the time it gets around to them, things should have settled down a bit and fallen into some sort of order.
That being said, even picking so late, there are burning questions about what the team is going to do. The free-agency strategy seems to have been to throw money at everyone they wanted and build a team that can win immediately.
While the draft is about the future, you have to think that the same mentality is going to go into it. The team is built to tear apart the league and make another run at the Super Bowl, and it's built to do that right away.
No matter what they decide to do, here are seven names that all fans must know going into the week of the draft. They're ranked positionally and by the level of interest the team has in that player/likelihood of the pick.
