DEN­VER BRON­COS

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - AFC WEST -

Grade: A-

Case Keenum de­trac­tors can de­bate pass­ing on a quar­ter­back at No. 5, but John El­way max­i­mized his picks. Af­ter the draft’s best de­fender fell in his lap, he added a wealth of sorely needed of­fen­sive tal­ent along with depth at cor­ner­back and line­backer.

Best pick

Bradley Chubb might not be a per­fect fit in a 3-4, but he has ex­pe­ri­ence in all sorts of front seven align­ments out of two- and three-point stances. He should im­me­di­ately be an up­grade against the run.

Up­side pick

Court­land Sut­ton was ex­pected by some to go in Round 1. He has great speed (4.54 40-yard dash) and agility (6.57 three-cone drill) for his size, along with a knack for spec­tac­u­lar catches. He could be DeAn­dre Hop­kins-like.
