Denver Broncos blog, news and rumors

Twenty-six hundred, that’s what the Denver Broncos second overall pick in the first round is worth on the NFL draft value chart. That’s a lot of points.

Personally, I’ve never been a big fan of mock drafts because (a) after the first 10 picks it’s hard to predict who will pick who, which in effect makes it nearly impossible to predict who will be available where, and (b) because it is absolutely impossible to foresee and predict draft day trades.
