After selecting nine players in the 2022 NFL draft, the Denver Broncos received a “B” grade from Doug Farrar and Mark Schofield on Touchdown Wire.

Denver opened the draft by selecting Oklahoma outside linebacker Nik Bonitto and UCLA tight end Greg Dulcich. Here’s what Farrar and Schofield had to say about those two picks:

Bonitto is an athletic, explosive and agile pass rusher who can step in and contribute immediately off the edge in pass rushing situations. With the addition of Randy Gregory and the presence of veteran Bradley Chubb, Bonitto is likely a rotational pass rusher as a rookie. With Dulcich, the Broncos added a solid move tight end, and perhaps a perfect compliment to Albert Okwuegbunam when Denver turns to 12 personnel packages.

Touchdown Wire also had good thinks to say about fourth-round pick Eyioma Uwazurike, a defensive lineman out of Iowa State:

[Uwazurike] is one of the better run defenders in this defensive line class, and the Cyclones aligned him all over their defensive fronts. His length and upper-body strength will translate well to the next level.
