The Broncos' best pick from each round

These Broncos draft picks proceeded to have careers with the Broncos that included at least one first-team All-Pro selection, two Pro Bowl nods and/or resulted in induction into the Broncos Ring of Fame and/or the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Round 1: OLB Von Miller (2011)
Round 2: DE/OLB Simon Fletcher (1985)
Round 3: DB Billy Thompson (1969)
Round 4: LB Tom Jackson (1973)
Round 5: RB Sammy Winder (1982)
Round 6: RB Terrell Davis (1995)
Round 7: TE Shannon Sharpe (1990)'s positions of need for the Broncos

"The Broncos have to address the offensive tackle position and quite possibly with their first pick. Finding a quality inside backer to put next to Brandon Marshall is in play, while a talented complementary player at DE for Derek Wolfe is a possibility."
