Watching the Mocks: Second Round

Posted May 9, 2014

A quick look at who the experts have the Broncos selecting with the 63rd overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.

After picking up Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby last night, the Broncos turn their attention to the middle rounds of the 2014 NFL Draf this evening. With less than three hours until the action resumes, let's take a quick look at who the experts expect the Broncos to select with the 63rd overall pick.

DenverBroncos.com Independent Analyst Andrew Mason: Wisconsin LB Chris Borland
By speed measurements, Borland is not necessarily an ideal three-down linebacker. But he plays faster than his time, makes few mistakes, takes the right angle almost every time, hits like a truck and can absorb a scheme rapidly. Elway has spoken of the wide receiver depth, and Mississippi's Donte Moncrief is a legitimate possibility here, but there are so many potential standout receivers that the Broncos might choose to wait, especially since they can wait, draft a developmental receiver and slowly groom him -- assuming there is not a tsunami of injuries to the position.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks: Colorado State C Weston Richburg
John Fox wants to build a tougher offensive line by adding rugged blockers along the interior.

Sports Illustrated's Don Banks: Stanford G David Yankey
"The Broncos don't have a desperate need at the position, even with Zane Beadles' departure in free agency, but Yankey is too highly rated to pass up, and he gives Denver quality depth at one of its few weak areas."

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr.: Alabama WR Kevin Norwood
Peyton Manning will love Norwood, who has good size, is an underrated athlete and works hard to get open.

ESPN's Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl: LSU WR Jarvis Landry

CBSSports.com's Dane Brugler: Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief
With Eric Decker no longer in Denver, the Broncos could add some young talent to the wide receiver position.

CBSSports.com's Rob Rang: Mississippi State G Gabe Jackson
Protecting Peyton Manning should be a top priority and Jackson would be a steal at this point in the draft.

SB Nation's Dan Kadar: Oregon State DE Scott Crichton
