Broncos mock draft roundup: Feb. 7, 2019

**Todd McShay, ESPN**: CB Deandre Baker, Georgia

Denver could trade up for a quarterback or take the dive here for Kyler Murray or Drew Lock, but this secondary is hurting as well. Aqib Talib is long gone, and Chris Harris Jr. fractured his fibula in December. What's more, Bradley Roby is a free agent. Baker is the most instinctive corner in the class. [Feb. 7]

**Walter Cherepinsky, Walter Football**: QB Drew Lock, Missouri

Drew Lock has a great arm and can make any throw, but he really needs to work on his field vision and accuracy. He should probably be taken in the second round, but we've seen teams reach for quarterbacks over the years. And besides, teams like Lock's gritty attitude and work ethic. He loves football, so he'll try hard to improve his flaws.[Feb. 7]

**Will Brinson,**: QB Drew Lock, Missouri

Ryan Wilson pointed out on the Pick Six Podcast ... that the buzz has John Elway in love with Lock. If that's the case he can't pass him up at 10 overall. [Feb. 6]

**Chad Reuter,**: QB Kyler Murray, Oklahoma

Picking behind at least two teams with quarterback needs, John Elway will have to either trade up to land his guy or take whichever top signal-caller is available at No. 10 if he wants to improve the Broncos' QB situation via the draft. [Feb. 5]

It won't be cheap, but the Broncos have to make a move. [Feb. 5]

**Luke Easterling, USA TODAY**: QB Drew Lock, Missouri [via mock trade with Buccaneers]

I've got a gut feeling Lock is John Elway's guy in this QB class, which means he won't wait around to see if he falls to No. 10 overall. Instead, the Broncos ship their picks in the second and third rounds to Tampa Bay to ensure they get the quarterback of their choice. [Feb. 5]

**Matt Miller, Bleacher Report**: QB Drew Lock, Missouri

Of the quarterbacks selected in the top 10 of this mock, Lock has the most experience and is the most likely to be ready to start immediately. [Feb. 4]


**Chris Trapasso,**: T Jonah Williams, Alabama

The Broncos are the enigma, X-factor, wild card -- whatever you want to call it -- of the top 10. Do they go quarterback? Will John Elway be timid selecting that position after the Paxton Lynch disaster? Does Denver turn its attention to other pressing needs and roll with Case Keenum again in 2019? If the draft unravels this way, I can see the Broncos going best player available, which here would be Williams. He can play right tackle as a rookie and potentially flip to left tackle in Year 2 if Garret Bolles continues to struggle there. [Feb. 1]

**Lance Zierlein,**: QB Drew Lock, Missouri

Lock has the size and tools, but he needs to improve his consistency and accuracy. He could sit behind Case Keenum for a season or compete for the starting job right away. [Jan. 29]

**Bucky Brooks,**: CB Greedy Williams, LSU

New head coach Vic Fangio will focus his efforts on fixing a defense that was a mild disappointment in 2018. Williams is a plug-and-play corner with the ball skills and instincts to emerge as a ballhawk early in his career. [Jan. 25]

John Elway is desperate for a franchise quarterback. A big week at the Senior Bowl could catapult Jones into the top 10, especially if he answers questions surrounding his arm talent.[Jan. 24]

**Daniel Jeremiah,**: LB Devin White, LSU

White is the ideal modern linebacker. He can run, cover and blitz. [Jan. 23]

**Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN**: CB Deandre Baker, Georgia

Former first-round pick Bradley Roby is a free agent, and Chris Harris Jr., who broke his leg in December, turns 30 over the summer. Cornerback is the No. 1 need for the Broncos. Baker isn't far behind Greedy Williams as the top corner in this class. General manager John Elway hit on his 2018 draft class, and he needs another good one to get the team back on track under new coach Vic Fangio. [Jan. 17]
