Following a free-agency period that netted the team major free agents in cornerback Aqib Talib, defensive end DeMarcus Ware, safety T.J. Ward and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, the Broncos will look to fill key holes on the roster at positions such as guard, cornerback and linebacker early on in the draft.
At the current moment, the Broncos have no projected starting left guard and lack a true starting middle linebacker on the roster.
Luckily for the Broncos, there is no shortage of quality cornerbacks in the 2014 NFL draft, and there are a couple of top-tier guards who will likely be available by the time the Broncos make their first selection with the No. 31 overall pick.
The first three rounds of a draft typically represent players who will have an immediate impact at the pro level for an NFL team. Here are the best- and worst-case scenarios for the Denver Broncos' top three picks in this year's NFL draft.
