Broncos trade back in first round of NFL Draft, pick up extra picks

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos are off the clock.

Denver will wait a few more minutes to make their first selection of the 2019 NFL Draft after trading the 10th-overall pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers for the 20th-overall and 52nd-overall picks in 2019 and a 2020 third-round pick.

The Steelers used the 10th-overall pick to select Michigan's Devin Bush.

The Broncos last traded down in the first round in 2012, when they ended up with an early second-round pick and early fourth-round pick in exchange for the 31st-overall pick. Denver spent that added second rounder on defensive lineman Derek Wolfe.

The Broncos now hold nine picks in this year’s draft. In addition to the 20th-overall pick, Denver holds two second-round picks (No. 41 and No. 52), a third-round pick (No. 71), a fourth-round pick (No. 125), two fifth-round picks (No. 148, No. 156), a sixth-round pick (No. 182), seventh-round pick (No. 237).

Go inside the Broncos' war room for the first day of the 2019 NFL Draft, including when the Broncos made a trade back and when they selected tight end Noah Fant at 20th overall.
