Broncos mock draft roundup: March 21, 2019

Vinnie Iyer, Sporting News: QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State

John Elway has his new bridge QB in Joe Flacco, but he still needs to consider a first-rounder in 2019. Haskins cemented his draft stock late in the Buckeyes' season, when he had some jaw-dropping games with his big arm and downfield accuracy. He has ideal size (6-3, 231 pounds) as a strong pocket passer with the right dose of athleticism. That checks the right boxes for Elway. [March 20]

Will Brinson, CBSSports.com: OL Garrett Bradbury, NC State

This is HIGH for a center and I could see why Denver would rather try and reload on their defense. But I can also see John Elway deciding that adding Bradbury as a plug and play starting center might set up Joe Flacco for success. I'm kind of looking at their offense and talking myself into them being better than people think. [March 20]

Nick Klopsis, Newsday: LB Devin White, LSU

The Broncos traded for Joe Flacco, got him some line help in Ja'Wuan James and rebuilt their secondary with Bryce Callahan and Kareem Martin. That leaves linebacker as the biggest remaining hole. Devin White is versatile enough to play any linebacker spot. He has the range to make plays in the passing game and can quickly get downhill to stop the run. [March 20]

Kristopher Knox, Bleacher Report: QB Drew Lock, Missouri

The Denver Broncos traded for quarterback Joe Flacco, which gives them an answer at quarterback in the short term. However, this doesn't mean the Broncos won't or shouldn't draft a quarterback to take over for him within the next year or two. [March 20]

Bucky Brooks, NFL.com: TE T.J. Hockenson, Iowa

It is hard to find a traditional Y tight end with the size and strength to dominate defenders on the edges while also possessing enough receiving skills to threaten the middle of the field. Hockenson checks off all of the boxes as a throwback at the position. [March 19]

Connor Orr, Sports Illustrated: QB Drew Lock, Missouri

An offseason dip into free agency at the offensive tackle spot makes a luxury pick possible. Joe Flacco is basically on a series of rolling one-year deals from here on out, and can transition whenever the time is right. This is a chance for John Elway to fix his biggest issue in the long term, while maintaining some stability in the short term. [March 19]

Dan Kadar, SB Nation: LB Devin White, LSU

After signing defensive backs Bryce Callahan and Kareem Jackson and right tackle Ju'Wuan James, Denver's needs are apparent. New head coach Vic Fangio could see a lot of Roquan Smith in White, and build the back seven of his defense around the LSU tackling machine. More importantly, Colorado would be a great home for White's horses. That's what really matters here. [March 18]

Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com: LB Devin White, LSU

Quarterback is the obvious need but John Elway sounds like he's all in on Joe Flacco. We'll see. In the meantime, the Broncos replace Brandon Marshall with White, one of the most dynamic players in the draft. He's a sideline-to-sideline thumper who would immediately solidify the middle of the defense, making life easier for both the front four and the secondary. [March 17]

Chris Trapasso, CBSSports.com: QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State

Haskins is very talented but is probably in need of a redshirt year, and he'd get that behind Joe Flacco in Denver. [March 17]

Charles Davis, NFL.com: LB Devin White, LSU

Expect GM John Elway to take a LONG look at Missouri QB Drew Lock despite the acquisition of Joe Flacco, but ultimately Denver opts for this multi-talented LB who leads vocally and by example. Not to mention, he's a hard hitter. [March 15]

Danny Kelly, The Ringer: LB Devin Bush, Michigan

Super-athletic off-ball linebacker with a hard-nosed demeanor and sought-after playmaking instincts in coverage. [March 15]
