Broncos trade up to select WR Juwann Winfree in sixth round of NFL Draft


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos traded up in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft to select Colorado wide receiver Juwann Winfree.

Denver sent the 212th-overall and 237th-overall picks to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for pick No. 187.

"We've selected Colorado WR Juwann Winfree in the sixth round," Elway tweeted. "He's a tough, physical player with a lot of top-flight traits with his size, speed and hands. Great to add another player with in-state ties to the Broncos."

Winfree played in eight games as a senior and recorded 28 receptions for 324 yards and two touchdowns.

Winfree, who spent his freshman year at Maryland, totaled 60 catches for 807 yards and six touchdowns in his FBS career.

He was among the players who participated in the Broncos' local Pro Day earlier this month.

The Broncos have no more scheduled picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. Denver's six selections are the team's fewest in any draft since 2014.
