The Squeeze: The 2016 Draft with DeMarcus and at Winter Park

  1. DeMarcus' trip to the draft

OLB DeMarcus Ware represented the Broncos at the 2016 NFL Draft, announcing Denver's third-round selection of safety Justin Simmons. While that was the most visible moment of his weekend in Chicago, he also enjoyed the time he was afforded to have a wonderful time with his son.

He had some good Chicago nights lol

  1. Winter Park hosts a wintry draft party

The Broncos took their draft on the road for the final day, announcing their final selections from the base of Mary Jane Territory at Winter Park Resort. It was a unique spot showcasing the natural beauty of Colorado and its ski slopes, and how could you resist watching former Broncos QB Jake Plummer skiing down to make the team's fourth-round pick?

And while Jake Plummer nailed his stop on the slope, Miles had a little bit more trouble.

  1. Newest Broncos thrilled to join the squad

I tend to think any football player would be overjoyed to be selected in the NFL Draft, and doubly so to be drafted by the defending world champions. From Paxton Lynch to Riley Dixon, the newest members of the Broncos voiced as much on Twitter and Instagram:

Blessed 🙏🏼🐴

Second-round pick Adam Gotsis was obviously more than pleased to join the Broncos' group of pass rushers:

(Devontae Booker, who does not use social media as often as the other players — his Twitter account was dormant from September 2013 until January 2016 — has yet to join the club on social media. FB Andy Janovich also has yet to post on social media.)
