Broncos selected Oklahoma EDGE Nik Bonitto with the No. 64 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
An accomplished two-sport athlete who received several scholarship offers for basketball, Bonitto (6’3/248) chose to eschew hardwood glory to pursue a career on the gridiron. It proved to be a prescient decision as he was the only player in the nation who recorded back-to-back seasons with a PFF pass-rush grade of 90.0 or more while generating a superb 22.4 percent win rate in that span. His 11.1 percent pressure rate was tops in the nation last year. Bonitto has elite speed and agility that was backed up by an impressive Combine, where he tested at an 85th-percentile level or better in every single test except for the bench, adding up to an elite 9.37 relative athletic score. He gets off the line quickly with a smooth shoulder dip and will bait opposing tackles with a slide step right off the snap that leaves blockers whiffing on contact. Bonitto has enough pop in his hands to keep opponents honest but is undersized against the run and prefers to go around blocks than take them on. Best suited as a 3-4 OLB, he has all the tools to be a pocket-wrecking edge in the mold of Giants LB Aziz Ojulari but could stand to add some size.

Broncos selected TE Greg Dulcich with the No. 80 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Dulcich (6'4/243) emerged as a junior with a 26-517-5 receiving line in seven games. He followed up with a senior campaign of 43-721-5 in 11 games and was named first-team All-Pac-12. Over his final two seasons, Dulcich recorded a 31% yardage share and a 26% target share, operating as a true downfield weapon with a 13.4 average depth of target. Dulcich appears capable of running more than typical underneath inline routes, profiling more as a big slot receiver in the mold of Mike Gesicki. With a 4.69 40, 34-inch vertical, and 10-foot-2 broad jump, he lacks Gesicki's elite athleticism, but still projects to be an above-average athlete at the position with uncommon receiving skills. With Albert Okwuegbunam ahead of him on the depth chart, Dulcich won't see the field a ton as a rookie. However, his pass-caching chops make him the ideal backup to the oft-injured Okwuegbunam.
