The Denver Boncos were able to use their No. 15 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to compliment receiver Courtland Sutton with Jerry Jeudy. Denver snatched up the Alabama wideout to add another player that can run long routes and stretch the field in the absence of Emmanuel Sanders, who was traded to New Orleans.
After their first pick, the Broncos continued to hit positions of need — receiver, defensive line, offensive line, and cornerback.
The team picked up two other wide receivers, KJ Hamler and Tyrie Cleveland. Hamler is a small, speedy weapon out of Penn State while Cleveland has above-average length with a high vertical — and both have potential to be a downfield mismatch.
Draft additions to the Broncos’ defense include cornerback Michael Ojemudia, tackle McTelvin Algim, linebacker Justin Strnad and edge rusher Derrek Tuszka. Ojemudia used his speed, size and power to allow just 5.0 yards per target as a redshirt junior and has the potential to excel as a rookie. Algim’s athleticism will make him an asset in the rotation, while Strnad adds energy and an elite ability to read offenses.
The offensive line got Lloyd Cushenberry III at center, who has strength and awareness on the field, and guard Netane Muti, a combative blocker who has flashes of power and potential.
