You could host draft festivities at Civic Center Park and even Red Rocks. And there’s no doubt fans would turn out in droves.

Good morning, Broncos Country!

If you missed it earlier this week, it was announced that the MLB All-Star game is headed back to Coors Field.

It’s obviously great news for baseball fans in Denver, Colorado and across the region. It’s even better news for businesses in and around Coors Field that have...

2021 NFL Draft Profile: OT Christian Darrisaw

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Should the Denver Broncos get Christian Darrisaw if Sewell is off the board already at 9?

Depending on who you talk to, Christian Darrisaw is either the second or third best offensive tackle in this draft. The general consensus is that he is third behind the unanimous first, Penei Sewell and RaShawn Slater.

Darrisaw is 6’ 4.6” and weighed in at 322 on his pro-day. His 34.5” inch arms arm good length for NFL offensive tackles. He was lightly recruited...

What if the Broncos trade for a QB?

Is the best way forward Drew Lock and a veteran?

With the NFL Draft less than a month away, it feels like the biggest question hanging over the Denver Broncos is what George Paton will choose to do at quarterback. Now that all the best options in free agency are long gone, there’s only three real options in front of him:

Will the new general manager spend his first draft acquiring a new signal caller?

Will Paton trade for competition before OTAs...

Ledyard makes a case why Broncos have to go QB in the Draft

Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images

Talking with Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Allbright earlier this week, Jon Ledyard is passionate that the Broncos should take advantage of their top 10 pick by going quarterback.

Draft guru Jon Ledyard made it clear on Broncos Country Tonight earlier this week that he does not think Drew Lock “is horrible at all,” but he still doesn’t know how the Broncos go into the 2021 season without drafting a rookie quarterback at the end of this month.

“I have no...

Ray Crockett loves what Broncos have done to improve secondary

The Denver Broncos can claw their way back into contention with a solid 2021 NFL Draft.

The Denver Broncos under new General Manager George Paton have done just about everything we could ask for to improve this roster in free agency without totally breaking the bank to do so. On Broncos Country Tonight, Ray Crockett joined the show to talk about those moves and one thing that he obviously loved was what the team did to get better in the secondary.

We’ve talked about it here on this...

This is going to be the most interesting draft season in a long time

The best part about the NFL draft season is how fluid everything is. Every little move causes the draft needle to jiggle. It’s kind of fun. For the Denver Broncos, that means everyday brings about a new scenario, and new possibilities.

Assessing VT’s corner. Does he make sense for Denver’s no. 9 overall pick?

GM George Paton showed the Broncos’ secondary some love during free agency, but he might not be finished. Among many prospects in the 2021 draft class, Virginia Tech’s corner Caleb Farley warrants an assessment.

Granted, the Broncos might not pick a cornerback straight out of the gate. ESPN’s Todd McShay seems to think they will, though he projected...

Who would actually be available in the NFL Draft if George Paton doesn’t trade?

One of the unsung tidbits most fans miss when it comes to draft season is how NFL teams generally meet around the beginning of April to lay out their plans for the draft. Those of us on the outside have been speculating for months, obviously. We’ve heard from a number of trusted insiders why ____ is going to slide or ____ will only be...

The Broncos have a new GM in George Paton and could do anything ranging from sticking with Drew Lock to trading for Desean Watson

As we draw ever closer to the 2021 NFL draft after big splash free agency moves are done, I see a landscape full of possibilities for the Broncos quarterback room in 2021.

They could stay the course with Drew Lock while hoping and praying for some sort of huge step in his development that jumps him up to being at least an average...

Could the Wildcat solve the Broncos issues at linebacker?

The Broncos’ off ball linebackers were a reliably solid unit in 2020. Alexander Johnson saw his role expand to take on more blitzing as Fangio adjusted to life without Von Miller. Josey Jewell stepped into the void when Todd Davis was released in September and overperformed expectations.

Together with the safeties, the duo served as the most...
