Wow, wow, WOW. The Denver Broncos announced early Wednesday afternoon, that star Quarterback Russell Wilson will be benched for the rest of the 2023-24 season. Perhaps I’m reading a little too much into it, but, being the opportunist that I am, I’m going to assume this is the end of the rocky relationship between Russell Wilson, and the Denver Broncos (COUGH COUGH…. Sean Payton). So I decided to take it upon myself to make a BOLD Seven-Round 2024 Devner Broncos Mock Draft. Buckle up for this one, people…
The Broncos Trade No. 14 Overall to The Cincinnati Bengals, For No. 18 & No. 49 Overall
BA-BOOM. The Broncos gain a much-needed second-round pick with this slight trade-down. Now, please don’t get too attached to that No. 49 overall pick, it won’t be here too long.
No. 18- Laiatu Latu (EDGE) UCLA
What a monster pick for the Broncos (Literally and figuratively). Latu is a potential Game-changing defensive player, with enough versatility to play on the edge, or even reduce inside to play 3-4 defensive end. The only reason why Latu might be on the board this long is his past Medical history at the University of Washington, which looks to be long behind him. The 6’5” 265 pound Latu would be a monumental upgrade along the Broncos defensive line.
The Broncos Trade No. 49, No. 137, & a 2025 First Round Pick to The Eagles, For No. 30 Overall
Yeah, yeah, I know. It looks like a lot, but in reality, it isn’t. You have to give to get in the NFL. Trust me, there is a real method to my madness in this Mock!
No. 30- Bo Nix (QB) Oregon
Let’s be real for a second here. The Broncos are heavily invested in Seah Payton, he is here for the long haul. It seems like from day one, Payton wasn’t a fan of Russell Wilson and was looking for any excuse to see him out of Denver. Payton isn’t getting any younger, either. It seemed pretty clear that Payton was going to want his Quarterback to develop, and trading BACK into the first round to get that coveted 5th-year option is key. Bo Nix has a lot of similarities to Drew Brees in his game, and for the life of me, I can’t figure out who coached him in New Orleans…
No. 79- Jalen McMillan (WR) Washington
Courtland Sutton has been really good for The Broncos this season, with double-digit receiving touchdowns. Outside of Sutton, and flashes of Marvin Mims, the receiving room has been a real letdown. I think it’s time to pull the plug on Jerry Jeudy, which would leave a hole at the receiver position.
McMillan was supposed to have a big role in the Huskies offensive this season, but an injury derailed most of his season. Regardless, The 6’1” 188-pound speedster can add some much-needed juice to the Broncos passing attack that relied too heavily on a lot of no-name receivers in 2023.
No. 126- Christian Mahogany (OG) Boston College
The Broncos invested heavily in the Offensive line last off-season, and I expect them to do so again this off-season and draft. Lloyd Cushenberry is having a pretty decent season but is a free agent after the season. Even if he is retained, you can never have too many good offensive linemen. Mahogany offers some nice versatility, as he can play either guard position or center. Standing at 6’3” and 322 pounds, Mahogany is a strong, technically sound prospect. Boston College has produced some nice O-Line talent in recent years, haven’t they?
No. 138- Hudson Clark (S) Arkansas
Clark is an instinctive, intelligent, and position-versatile defensive back with prominent awareness, play diagnosis ability, and ball reactions to mitigate explosive plays from the opposition. He has a big frame at 6’2” 195 pounds and can Play ‘Big Nickel’ if needed. The Depth behind Justin Simmons and Caden Sterns (when healthy) is pretty sketchy, and I think Clark would be an excellent rotational playmaker in Denver.
No. 191- Dwight McGlothern (CB) Arkansas
Why not just add the whole Arkansas secondary at this rate, eh? McGlothern is a real sleeper amongst the NFL Draft Community. The 6’2 188 Pound Corner has put up some super solid production over the last two seasons, with seven interceptions. All against the cream of the crop competition in the SEC. McGlothern has some serious coverage ability and could play on the boundary, and take some snaps in the slot as well. Don’t let the pick number fool you, McGlothern has the potential to be a day-one starter.
