Each pick the Broncos make paints a picture, sometimes that canvas is disjointed and you can’t see the picture until you study it for a bit.

This draft is progressing almost along a straight line toward several Broncos goals.

First, the defense is going to be a disruptive, turnover-creating force.  Adding an elite pass rusher, a physical cornerback and a ball-sniffing ILB make the tea leaves pretty easy to read.

For the offensive side, two potential slot receivers, interior line help, depth for TE and a punishing, top-flight back lend perspective to the signing of Case Keenum.  A grinding, efficient offense will win a lot of games for Denver this season.  DaeSean Hamilton has an opportunity to really enhance that efficiency for the Broncos.

The 6′ 203-pound Penn State product has a reputation for crisp routes and clutch performances.  The more tools the offense has, the more they will succeed and Elway has addressed most of the offensive needs.
