Tell me if you’ve heard this before: Another mock draft, another different pick for the Broncos.
Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox has Denver selecting Iowa offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs with the 15th overall pick.
Wirfs, 20, is a 6-foot-5, 322-pound junior who has seen his stock steadily rise on a number of draft boards. ESPN’s Mel Kiper has him as the second-best offensive tackle (behind Georgia’s Andrew Thomas) and the 20th overall prospect in the draft.
“Wirfs, a former high school wrestling champion, plays right tackle for the Hawkeyes — though he has had a few series on the left side — and he just mauls defenders,” Kiper writes. “Dominates them. He has incredible strength and power … and he can also move his feet.”
It’s been a hodgepodge of Broncos picks in other mock drafts. CBS Sports had Denver going for Alabama wide receiver Henry Ruggs III. ESPN’s Todd McShay has LSU safety Grant Delpit Broncos-bound. And USA Today has the team selecting South Carolina defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw.
