2010 Draft Order finalized

Today the NFL finalized the draft order, and awarded 32 compensatory draft choices to 19 teams.
Denver will have six selections in April’s draft:

Round 1, Pick 11 (from Chicago) - 11th overall
Round 2, Pick 13 - 45th overall
Round 3, Pick 17 - 80th overall
Round 4, Pick 16 - 114th overall
Round 6, Pick 14 - 183rd overall
Round 7, Pick 13 - 220th overall

The League is doing two things new this year, 1) The Draft will be in Prime Time, and 2) It will be in a 3-day span. The first round will start Thursday night, April 22nd 7:30 ET, with the 2nd-7th rounds taking place on Friday and Saturday.

With the 11th pick, it is speculated that the Broncos will draft LB Rolando Mcclain or WR Dez Bryant. Denver could also trade down, and select someone like Idaho's Guard Mike Iupati.

In other news, yesterday, Guard Chris Kuper signed his one-year tender, ending his restricted free agency. He is a solid player, and will be a vital part of Denver's offense in 2010. Denver now looks to re-sign their other free agents, and focus on the draft.
