Chris Harris Jr., Emmanuel Sanders share first-round pick wishes

Posted Apr 17, 2017

Whom do Sanders and Harris hope the Broncos select in the first round of the NFL Draft?

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — In 10 days, the Broncos will be on the clock for the 2017 NFL Draft.

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.

Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders spoke to the media for the Monday for the first time since returning for offseason workouts, and both players shared their wish list for the Broncos’ top pick.

“I feel like we need help all around the board in terms of, you know, the offensive line,” Sanders said. “But as far as my position, I like a lot of receivers. I like [Oklahoma’s Dede] Westbrook, I like [Washington’s] John Ross. 

“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.

Busted.
