Mock draft after mock draft projected the Broncos would take a wide receiver with the 15th-overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Broncos selected former Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy with the 15th-overall pick in the first round of Thursday's NFL Draft.

In the process, the Broncos added arguably the best wide receiver in a historically talented draft class.
