Denver Broncos
Picks: DT Sylvester Williams, RB Montee Ball, CB Kayvon Webster, DE Quanterus Smith, WR Tavarres King, OT Vinston Painter, QB Zac Dysert.
Analysis: Under vice preseident of football operations John Elway, the Broncos are starting to get the hang of value drafting and how that can sustain a team long-term. Williams isn't going to change the game at defensive tackle, but he provides size and strength at a position where the Broncos were lacking the past two years. Likewise, Ball was a very good value in the second round and should contribute, perhaps becoming a starter by the middle of this season. You can pretty much echo those remarks with Webster. The intriguing question is whether Smith can turn into a complementary pass rusher opposite the great Von Miller. It will probably take two years, but that's fine, especially if the Broncos sign Dwight Freeney in the meantime.
Grade: C+
