Denver Broncos 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Denver Broncos Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Denver Broncos from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Denver Broncos, check out our Denver Broncos Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Broncos:

EDSFootball - Hanson (5/10)

24. Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati

If the Broncos are picking this late, it's possible that Drew Lock took a major step forward in his development. There were draft-night rumors -- e.g., Mark Schlereth called it "close to a done deal" -- that the Broncos would acquire Aaron Rodgers, but those didn't materialize during the draft.

While I was still tempted to slot another Bearcat (quarterback Desmond Ridder) here, Denver's top pass-rushers -- Von Miller (2022) and Bradley Chubb (2023) -- will become free agents in the next two offseasons. Before Sanders decided to return to school, he was getting some late-first buzz. Sanders had 10.5 TFLs and seven sacks over 10 games last season.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (5/7)

24. Jayden Daniels, QB, Arizona State

The Denver Broncos passed on a quarterback early in the 2021 NFL draft, and while rumors continue to swirl around veteran passer Aaron Rodgers, the QB position could be in play for the organization in the next draft cycle.

Another passer to watch as a potential QB riser is Arizona State's Jayden Daniels. Daniels was an immediate starter for the Sun Devils as a true freshman, and was an Honorable Mention for the Pac-12 Freshman Offensive Player of the Year in 2019. In just four games last year, Daniels completed 49 of 84 passes for 701 yards, five touchdowns and a single interception. He added another 223 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. With a big junior season -- which is certainly possible -- Daniels could be the next QB to rocket up boards during draft season.

PFF - Renner (5/7)

24. Abraham Lucas, OT, Washington State

Lucas is a powerful right tackle who rarely gets moved on tape. He likely would have declared this past year had the Pac-12 season not gotten significantly shortened. He played only 272 snaps in 2020.

2021 NFL Power Rankings: Denver Broncos

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Denver Broncos rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-draft roundup for the Broncos in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 26

Player who benefited most from draft: OLBs Von Miller and Bradley Chubb

It's a tie because life could be far better for the Broncos' two most prominent pass-rushers given all of the team's offseason work on the secondary. Not only did they sign cornerbacks Kyle Fuller and Ronald Darby in free agency, re-sign safety Justin Simmons to a megadeal and bring back safety Kareem Jackson on a one-year deal, the Broncos also selected Alabama CB Pat Surtain II with their first-round pick. Surtain will be in the mix for significant playing time from the moment the equipment staff hands him his helmet. It all points to improved coverage and more sack opportunities for Denver's pass-rushers. -- Jeff Legwold

NFL.com -- Rank: 26

The Broncos improved their roster with a strong draft. Cornerback Patrick Surtain II could end up being the best defensive player to come out of his class, while second-round pick Javonte Williams is a running back with star potential who profiles as a significant upgrade over Melvin Gordon. Quarterback remains the mystery position here, however. Trading for Teddy Bridgewater gave Denver much-needed Drew Lock insurance. But is that it? Perhaps the rumors about a pursuit of Aaron Rodgers ends with a seismic move a la Peyton Manning's arrival in 2012. Rodgers would make Denver a Super Bowl contender. The current personnel keeps this team in the mid-20s.
