Matt Corral NFL Draft photo
With the firing of Vic Fangio, I think it opens up the possibilities of who could end up going to Denver at nine. Had Fangio returned, I would have locked in on this pick being spent on a quarterback in some form or fashion. Still, a new coach may take a more patient approach, especially if there are going to be scheme changes. Once we the Broncos have named their man, predicting who will be selected here will be a bit easier.


However, considering they are picking ninth for the second-straight year, they may have to take advantage of this spot. This roster has a solid core of young talent on the offensive end, and watching them continue to struggle with consistency is tied to who is starting under center. At the end of the day, Corral is the best combination of physical gifts and production in this class, and that may too difficult to pass on for George Paton and the new head coach.

BRONCOS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
