Broncos NFL draft grades: Here’s how fans graded Denver’s draft class

May 11, 2020

The Denver Broncos finished the 2020 NFL draft with 10 picks and a haul of players centered around making sure quarterback Drew Lock takes the next step in his development this season.

It began in the first round with the selection of wide receiver Jerry Jeudy at No. 15 overall. Jeudy will pair with Courtland Sutton to form one of the more hard-to-cover young receiving tandems in the AFC. And if you add second-round pick, KJ Hamler, to that equation, Lock will have an abundance of playmakers at his disposal in the passing game this year.

The Broncos even grabbed a tight end in this year’s draft, Missouri’s Albert Okwuegbunam, despite spending a first-round selection on Noah Fant last year. Okwuegbunam was one of Lock’s favorite targets during their time together at Missouri and is a darkhorse to be one of the more productive offensive rookies this year.

But which pick did Broncos fans like most? That answer comes via their NFL draft grades.



According to a poll that was run by the Denver Post, Jeudy recorded the highest grade (A — 4.86). Next was Lloyd Cushenberry, the starting-quality center from LSU who the Broncos stole in Round 3. He earned an A- (4.67). The only other A- was the Broncos’ seventh-round pick, North Dakota State’s Derrek Tuszka. His 4.48 (A-) was the fans’ third-highest score.

Overall, Broncos fans gave their team a B. Not too shabby.

It’s a critical draft class for John Elway’s tenure at the top of the team’s front office. After having several swings (and misses) at the quarterback position, the acquisitions from the 2020 NFL Draft have to emerge as the final pieces for Lock to become one of the league’s top young passers.
