Last Updated: May 9, 2023

The Broncos took one wide receiver, one linebacker, one cornerback, one safety, and one center in the 2023 NFL Draft.

While Denver got good value on third-round pick Drew Sanders, there was no need to take a wideout in Round 2 given its current roster.

Let’s take a closer look at the Broncos’ NFL Draft Recap.

Broncos Draft Grade 2023

Broncos NFL Draft Grade: C+

I gave the Broncos a C+ for their questionable selection of a wideout with their first pick, but also reflecting how they stole linebacker Drew Sanders in the third round.

Broncos Draft Team Needs 2023

1. Edge Rusher

The Broncos traded star edge rusher Bradley Chubb to the Dolphins at last year’s trade deadline, leaving a glaring hole at this position. While they signed Randy Gregory in free agency, they would be wise to add some depth through the draft.

2. Center

Denver did a good job addressing the offensive line through free agency, signing offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey (71.5 PFF Grade) and left guard Ben Powers (86.5 Pass Blocking Grade). However, they could add a center to help with Lloyd Cushenberry III (56.2 PFF Grade).

3. Defensive Tackle

The Broncos currently have D.J. Jones (63.6 PFF Grade) and Mike Purcell (67.7 PFF Grade) leading the way at defensive tackle. New defensive coordinator Vance Joseph could use some more depth on the interior.

Broncos May Also Consider Drafting: Linebacker, Cornerback
