DENVER — After finishing the season with an 16-15 win vs. the Raiders, the Broncos will have the 15th-overall pick in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft.
Should the Broncos hold on to the pick, it will mark the fifth time the Broncos have made the 15th-overall pick in the NFL Draft. Denver previously drafted CB Deltha O'Neal (2000), LB John Mobley (1996), S Dennis Smith (1981) and G Tom Glassic (1976) at that position.
As it currently stands, the Broncos hold five picks in the draft's first 100 selections, including three third-round picks, and nine picks overall. The Broncos are expected to add to their collection of draft picks when the NFL awards compensatory picks in February.
Notable 15th-overall picks in recent history include QB Dwayne Haskins (2019), T Kolton Miller (2018), S Malik Hooker (2017), RB Melvin Gordon (2015), LB Ryan Shazier (2014), DE Bruce Irvin (2012) and Jason Pierre-Paul (2010).
Five other teams also finished with an 7-9 record. Because of the Broncos' strength of schedule, they were placed behind the Jets, Raiders, Colts and Buccaneers, but ahead of the Falcons.
This will be President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway's ninth first-round pick. The Broncos' previous first-round picks in Elway's tenure are Von Miller (No. 2), Sylvester Williams (No. 28), Bradley Roby (No. 31), Shane Ray (No. 23), Paxton Lynch (No. 26), Garett Bolles (No. 20), Bradley Chubb (No. 5) and Noah Fant (No. 20).
