Barring a trade, Denver will make its first selection with the 20th pick, and fans aren’t the only ones anxious to see whom the Broncos select.
“The tight end class is just so deep. I mean, look at those guys. A lot of explosive guys. I think it’s a good draft and I know [Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager John] Elway and those guys will make the right decision.”
Harris is also lobbying for an offensive player, and while he refrained from using names, he seemed to have one particular player in mind.
“I like playmakers, man,” Harris said. “I want someone – [whether] it’s a playmaker on defense or offense – a guy that’s going to put up some points or a guy that’s going to be able to change the game.
“We definitely need a guy that can play running back, receiver and returner. Any guy that can do that, I would like. I would definitely love him.”
The Broncos’ cornerback chuckled toward the end of his sentence, and when a reporter said that description seemed to fit Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey, Harris shot a quick look to the side before he started to laugh.
