Broncos NFL Draft Recap 2024

Last Updated: Mar 25, 2024

The Denver Broncos still need to get a quarterback and will need to add one via the draft. Russell Wilson is gone, and Jarrett Stidham is penciled in atop the depth chart.

They added a few pieces to the defense in Malcolm Roach, Cody Barton, and Brandon Jones. None of those players are exceptional.

With about $21M left under the cap, will the Broncos even bother to spend anything more?

This season likely amounts to a punt-maybe next year, too. Denver has to count Wilson’s release as $53M against the cap this year and $32M next year.

  • Round 1, Pick 12: Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

As of March 8, Michael Rochman says:

“A rebuild is on the horizon in Denver, so acquiring a top cornerback option to pair with Patrick Surtain II could help this defense establish itself as one of the top secondaries despite the release of Justin Simmons.

Quarterback is in play, but the Broncos seem better suited to punt and wait for 2025 than select one of the remaining options while placing them in a bad situation."

Broncos Draft Team Needs 2024

Note: The following information was written prior to the 2024 NFL Draft.

1. Quarterback

The Broncos have yet to get much ROI in the last few years of the draft. They’ll need to stockpile talent, and the question is whether they should trade up for a quarterback.

Judging by the lack of roster moves this free agency, the Broncos don’t seem eager to compete and are punting this season.

Rather than destroy the confidence of a young rookie quarterback, they’ll likely stick with Jarrett Stidham for a year.

2. Wide Receiver

The Broncos made the right call to pass on giving Jerry Jeudy a big contract. However, they still need to improve the depth behind Courtland Surron.

Marvin Mims is a better returner than receiver, and the rest of the WR room is full of hand-me-downs.

3. Edge

Denver is getting great bang for its buck in its top two pass rushers: Jonathan Cooper and Nik Bonitto. Cooper is a former seventh-rounder, and Bonitto was a second-round choice in 2022.

No one outside the Mile High City knows either player, as they’re replacement-level options.
