The NFL draft is less than two weeks away, and there's no better time than the present to take a closer look at which prospects make sense for each team.

We'll go through each division to pair prospects with each team on Days 1, 2 and 3 of the draft. (Even if a team does not have a pick on a given day -- for example, the Patriots on Day 1 -- we'll still recommend a player, as trades can always change the draft order.)

Important note: This is not a mock draft. We aren't predicting where players will land. Rather, we're identifying a few prospects who fill a need and/or fit what each team likes to do schematically.

Here's a breakdown of the AFC West.


Denver Broncos

Day 1 (pick No. 20): Garett Bolles, OT, Utah

After ranking 28th in yards per rush and 25th in sack percentage, Denver needs to address its O-line. Russell Okung is now with the Chargers, and even though the Broncos signed Menelik Watson, they lack long-term answers up front. Bolles is the most athletic offensive lineman in the class, showing excellent feet, quality length and an edge to his game on tape. Bolles would have a chance to step in and add stability to the position from day one.
