Player who benefited most from draft: RB Melvin Gordon III

When the Broncos concluded their pre-draft meetings, they weren't that excited about the class of running backs available, so they signed Gordon two days before the draft. Before then, Gordon had drawn some interest leaguewide in free agency, but not enough to induce him to accept a short-term, incentive-filled deal. But that is what he did with the Broncos on a one-year deal. Then the Broncos did not select a running back.

Denver addressed this hole in its attack through the draft, selecting UCLA's Greg Dulcich in the third round.
