The Broncos currently hold the No. 9 pick but could move up to No. 4 or No. 5 to get a quarterback, despite deciding not to trade away Drew Lock this offseason, per Rapoport.
The Patriots are another option to move up from No. 15 even after re-signing Cam Newton this offseason.
“I do not anticipate that the Patriots are done at the quarterback position,” Rapoport explained. “I would expect them to take one at some point in the draft.”
