Albert Breer, MMQB: QB Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma (trade up to No. 4)
Denver had Mayfield at the Senior Bowl, and they have a starter, in Case Keenum, who lines up nicely with his style.* *

Peter King, MMQB: EDGE Bradley Chubb, NC State
And I think GM John Elway thinks hard, thinks of Rosen, and gets the *You cannot pass on Bradley Chubb here because we'll have the best pass-rush in football for the next five years *talk from his staff.

Colin Cowherd, FOX Sports: EDGE Bradley Chubb, NC State
Bradley Chubb is a tremendous pass rusher. Outside a quarterback, I can make an argument, the most valuable position in this league is quarterback and pass rusher and then left tackle.

Danny Kelly, The Ringer: RB Saquon Barkley, Penn State
GM John Elway grabs Barkley, a player who can provide a boost to Denver's anemic run game while giving Keenum the type of support he needs, both on the ground and as an option in the passing attack.

Chad Reuter, NFL.com: EDGE Bradley Chubb, NC State
The Broncos defense was at its best when Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware were terrorizing quarterbacks. Now Chubb will help Miller strike fear into passers in the AFC.

WalterFootball.com: G Quenton Nelson, Notre Dame
This may seem a bit too early for a guard, but Quenton Nelson is the best player in this class behind Saquon Barkley. Besides, the Redskins used the fifth-overall selection on Brandon Scherff several years ago, and that panned out.

Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports: CB Josh Jackson, Iowa (trade back to No. 12)
The Broncos cut ties with Aqib Talib, and in Jackson they'll have a rangy, fast, younger, cheaper athletic cornerback who can replace him in the secondary.

Chris Trapasso, CBS Sports: QB Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma
The Broncos pair Mayfield with a quarterback who has a similar skill set in Case Keenum. There's no rush to get the former Oklahoma star on the field, and Keenum is the ideal mentor.
