The Denver Broncos will have many options when they have the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft on Thursday night. They could hold onto the pick and draft where they are, or they could move down a few spots, if they choose to do that, but it’s highly unlikely they will deal the pick.

According to former NFL executive Mike Lombardi, who now works for The Ringer, said they love cornerback Denzel Ward.

Lombardi made the statement while on the GM Street podcast. Some thought the Broncos are interested in a quarterback with their pick; however, they appear to be looking on the defensive side.

Ward would be the second former Ohio State Buckeye on the team. They hit golf with corner Bradley Roby.

With the Broncos trading away Aqib Talib to the Los Angeles Rams, Denver will definitely focus on a cornerback in the draft. Ward is considered a man-coverage corner.

He is also considered the best corner in the draft. He ran 4.32 at the combine.

Ward, who appeared in 11 games as a junior, had 37 tackles this past season along with two interceptions and 15 pass deflections.

As a sophomore in 2016, he appeared in 10 games. Ward had 23 tackles and nine pass deflections.

He appeared in five games in 2015 and had just seven tackles.

In his college career, he has appeared in 26 games. He had 67 tackles, two interceptions, and 24 pass deflections.
