The Denver Broncos, under the new leadership of general manager George Paton, seem as if they’re on the brink of something special. 

Denver’s roster was already loaded with talent, and some think the Broncos are a quarterback away from challenging for the AFC West crown. Obviously, there have been rumors connecting them with a certain disgruntled quarterback, Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers. Could that have factored into Denver’s draft plans? Possibly, as Paton addressed every position of need with quality additions except QB. 

Here are the Broncos’ 2021 NFL Draft picks:

Patrick Surtain II may be the most pro-ready cornerback in the 2021 class. While some wondered if quarterback Justin Fields should have been the selection here, Denver is satisfied having this cornerback with good size, length, and upside. He steps in and becomes a Day 1 starter under defensive coordinator Ed Donatell.
