Latest From The Draft


The Broncos went into the third day of the draft in search of help on offense and all four picks Saturday were on that side of the ball. They also too two big gambles in those four picks -- that Michigan tight end Jake Butt's knee will heal and that Mississippi quarterback Chad Kelly can both get healthy and leave his past off-the-field troubles behind.

The Broncos have the final pick of the draft -- 253rd overall -- and they have said they'd like a quarterback in this draft class. So, that's a possibility. While they could sign one as an undrafted rookie, they've seen Colorado's Sefo Liufau plenty , Central Michigan's Cooper Rush started 50 games in his career and Tiffin's Antonio Pipkin is an interesting small school player. Still think they should give Air Force wide receiver Jalen Robinette a long look, however.
