ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --**After being eliminated from the playoffs by the Colts on Sunday, the Broncos now know where they will pick in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
They will have the 28th overall selection on April 30 in Chicago at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University.
The Broncos tied the Cowboys with a 12-4 regular-season record, but Dallas will pick one slot ahead of Denver because they had an easier regular season schedule.
Denver had the 31st overall slot last year and took cornerback Bradley Roby out of Ohio State. Roby played 859 defensive snaps on the season, including Sunday's playoff game. He nabbed three interceptions, including one of Andrew Luck on Sunday. In the 2013 draft, the Broncos picked 28th overall, taking defensive tackle Sylvester Williams out of North Carolina. In 2012, the Broncos traded out of the first round and took defensive end Derek Wolfe out of Cincinnati with the 36th overall pick.
