DENVER —The Broncos will pick 20th in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft when it begins on April 27 in Philadelphia.
The pick will be Denver's highest first-round selection since they chose Von Miller with the second-overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
The Broncos, one of three non-playoff teams with nine wins, will have the lowest draft pick of those already decided. Selections 21-32 will be decided as the playoffs progress.
Denver has selected a defensive player with its top pick in four of the last five drafts in which the team held a first-round pick. In 2016, however, the Broncos traded up to select quarterback Paxton Lynch with the 26th-overall pick.
The 2017 NFL Draft will be the Broncos' seventh under Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway.
The Draft will span April 27-29. After the first round concludes on the 27th, the second and third rounds will be held on April 28. The 2017 NFL Draft will conclude April 29 with rounds 4-7.
