The Denver Broncos are eager to choose 12th overall in the 2024 NFL draft. This is the Broncos' first first-round choice in three years. After an 8-9 2023 season, the Broncos want to maximize their draft selections this year.
George Paton, the team's general manager, is hopeful: "When drafting high, you need to hit most of your choices.
We last had a first-round pick in 2021, which went nicely. We're excited, but we don't want to restart. We're thrilled to pick them up.
After selecting 12th overall, the Broncos have numerous alternatives. Without a franchise quarterback since Peyton Manning retired in 2016, they may pick one.
Since defense has been a strength recently, they may choose a defensive player. For additional draft selections, the Broncos might trade down.
No matter what the Broncos do with their pick, they will want to do better than they did in 2023. Last year, the Broncos came in third in the AFC West,
behind the Kansas City Chiefs and the Las Vegas Raiders. The Broncos will try to make the playoffs in 2024 with the help of a strong draft class and some key free agent deals.
