Broncos Wire podcast: Courtland Sutton’s status + NFL draft thoughts

We’re now less than one week away from the 2024 NFL draft!

Looking ahead to next week’s draft, I joined host Ryan O’Leary on the Broncos Wire podcast to discuss Courtland Sutton’s status, Denver’s options at pick No. 12 and my latest seven-round mock draft for the Broncos.

Check out our notes from this week’s podcast below. 

1. Courtland Sutton wants a revised contract

  • Sutton is skipping the voluntary part of offseason workouts because he’s not happy with his contract. Only $2 million is guaranteed this year and there’s no guarantees next year.

  • Sutton has base salary of $13M in 2024 and $13.5M in 2015 but salary cap hits of $17.39M and $17.82M over the next two years.

  • We love ya, Court, but read the room! After eating $53 million to cut Russell Wilson, I think the Broncos are far more likely to trade Sutton than give him a pay raise.

  • Trade candidates: Steelers? Ravens? Patriots? Bills?

2. Seven-round mock draft for Broncos 

  • Trade OT Garett Bolles to Patriots for 2nd-round pick

  • Trade WR Courtland Sutton to Cardinals for 3rd-round pick

  • Trade pick No. 147 (Round 5) to Saints for TE Taysom Hill 

  • Round 1, pick 12: OL Troy Fautanu, Washington

  • Round 2, pick 34: QB Michael Pratt, Tulane

  • Round 3, pick 76: DL T’Vondre Sweat, Texas (*DWI)

  • Round 3, pick 90: CB Kris Abrams-Draine, Missouri (via trade)

  • Round 4, pick 121: OLB Mohamed Kamara, Colorado State

  • Round 5, pick 136: RB Isaac Guerendo, Louisville

  • Round 5, pick 145: WR Luke McCaffrey, Rice

  • Round 6, pick 203: OLB Jalyx Hunt, Houston Christian

  • Round 6, pick 207: LB Jordan Magee, Temple

3. Takeaways from pre-draft press conference 

  • Teams have called about potential trade up/down

  • Don’t want to force a QB at 12, BPA with first pick

  • Team seemed unconcerned about Sutton’s absence

Ryan and I will return next week to react to Denver’s draft class.
