Denver Broncos: Projected defensive depth chart ahead of NFL draft – Broncos Wire

The Denver Broncos’ defense does not have any glaring holes on defense going into the 2022 NFL draft, which will allow the team to select the best player available in each round.
Today we’re taking a quick pre-draft look at the team’s projected defensive depth chart. Keep in mind that this is Broncos Wire’s projection, not an official depth chart.

The Broncos might end up playing Jones at nose (especially if Purcell is a cap casualty), so Denver will likely draft another end, at the very least to provide more depth on the defensive line.

The Broncos are expected to give Browning a look at outside linebacker this spring, which might make Singleton an early favorite to start next to Jewell by default. Browning has more long-term upside, though.
Denver has pretty good depth on the edge, but with Chubb and Reed both scheduled to become free agents next year, the Broncos will probably draft another pass rusher later this month.

The Broncos have some really good talent at cornerback, but they clearly need more depth. Denver will probably draft at least one cornerback and the team will likely sign several undrafted free agent corners as well.

The Broncos are looking pretty good at safety after re-signing Kareem Jackson to a one-year deal.

The Broncos have eight picks to use in the NFL draft, including a second-round pick and a pair of third-round picks. The draft will be held in Las Vegas from April 28-30.
