The Denver Broncos come into the draft hoping that one of the top four tackles will somehow fall to number 15. With that likely to happen and not wanting to reach on a tier two tackle, look for the Broncos to help young quarterback Drew Lock differently.
The Broncos can add to a dynamic duo of wide receiver Courtland Sutton and tight end Noah Fant with the speedy receiver from Alabama Henry Ruggs III. Some expect Ruggs to come off the board quickly, but as the Raiders well know speed isn’t everything. Ruggs is a great inside fit for the Broncos and will thrive on short crossing routes to help Locke distribute the ball quickly.
While the Atlanta Falcons have loaded up their offense with previous first-round picks, they have yet to address the defense which will come in the draft. Given the importance of pass-rush look for the Falcons to select K’Lavon Chaisson, the defensive end from LSU.
Chaisson may very well be the most dynamic pass-rusher in the draft, even ahead of Chase Young. He has size, athleticism, and strength to contain the edge while getting after the opposing team’s quarterback. Chaisson is currently a finesse rusher but has the strength to become a better bull-rusher.
The Falcons must contemplate taking Javon Kinlaw here but will go Chaisson given the importance of pass rush in the NFL.
