Denver Broncos 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Denver Broncos Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Denver Broncos from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Denver Broncos, check out our 2021 Denver Broncos Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Broncos:

Rotoworld - Thor Nystrom (8/21)

13. Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State

If Drew Lock proves to be a standout quarterback, Denver is very close to returning to contention. The Broncos could use another tackle, but Cosmi and Leatherwood just got popped. Stopping Parsons' fall at 1.13 would give the Broncos a horrifyingly scary second-level unit. Parsons would slot in the middle between edge rushers Bradley Chubb and Von Miller. A fabulous run defender with outstanding range, Parsons is also a Chupacabra on the blitz.

PFF - Mike Renner (8/19)

13. Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

With Garett Bolles' fifth-year option declined and Ja'Wuan James set to play just 63 snaps in two seasons with the team after getting hurt last year and opting out of the 2020 season, the future of the tackle position in Denver is up in the air. Cosmi can fix that with his proven track record at both tackle positions in a high-volume passing offense. He allowed 25 pressures as a redshirt freshman at right tackle in 2018 before switching to the left side and allowing only 14.

The Draft Network - Kyle Crabbs (8/19)

14. Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

The Broncos lost Chris Harris this offseason and although the team did add A.J. Bouye, he is an aging, declining cornerback and the team will need some more sturdy options to pair with their dominant pass-rush. Offensive tackle got consideration here, too, but there aren't a lot of ideal options for up front.

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Denver Broncos rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Post-Draft NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the Broncos in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 22

Broncos general manager John Elway appeared to divide his offseason plan into two phases: spend a ton to revamp the defense via free agency and the veteran trade market, and get young and fast on offense through the draft. Are the Broncos any closer to catching the Chiefs? Maybe not, but they should be closer to competing for a wild card spot if their changes mean they can score more points.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 18

John Elway had a good draft and added some much-needed weapons to the offense in Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler. Drew Lock has to be happy.

Denver Broncos Fantasy Football Projections

Not only do we have fantasy football projections by positions, we have team-by-team fantasy projections as well.

Here are our projections for the Denver Broncos running backs for the 2020 NFL season:

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Melvin Gordon184.7748637.4302.91.78151.77
It was a surprising move for Gordon to stay in the division as the Broncos already had a back-to-back 1,000-yard rusher that is also a capable receiver out of the backfield. Vic Fangio said of the Gordon and Phillip Lindsay duo: "I anticipate both playing enough where we really don’t have to designate a starter." Either way, MG3 figures to get the larger share of the split, although Lindsay may offer more value at his later ADP.
Phillip Lindsay156.5719.95.0933.7212.30.76128.32
The former UDFA has begun his career with back-to-back seasons with 1,000 rushing yards and 35 catches. As productive as he has been, he moves down a spot on the depth chart as the team signed Melvin Gordon in free agency.
Royce Freeman32.6127.10.915.290.40.328.95
