Broncos to pick fifth in 2018 NFL Draft

Posted Dec 31, 2017

The Broncos' pick in the upcoming draft was set after Sunday's games finished.

DENVER — The Denver Broncos officially own the fifth-overall pick in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft.

The pick is the Broncos' highest since they held the second-overall selection in 2011. With that year's No. 2 pick, the Broncos selected three-time First-Team All-Pro Von Miller.

Ezekiel Elliott (2016), Brandon Scherff (2015), Khalil Mack (2014), Patrick Peterson (2011) and Eric Berry (2010) are just a few players in recent history who were selected with the No. 5 pick.

Those five players have a combined 18 Pro Bowl appearances and nine First-Team All-Pro selections between them.

In President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway's current tenure (2011-present) with the Broncos, the team has taken the following players in the first round: Von Miller (No. 2 overall), Sylvester Williams (No. 28), Bradley Roby (No. 31), Shane Ray (No. 23), Paxton Lynch (No. 26) and Garett Bolles (No. 20).

A complete list of the top 20 picks can be found below:

1. Cleveland

2. New York Giants

3. Indianapolis

4. Cleveland (via Houston)
