The Broncos’ last pick is in. At least for now.

Denver selected University of Colorado receiver Juwann Winfree in the sixth round with the 187th overall pick.  The Broncos traded their final two picks in the draft (No. 212 and No. 237) to move up into position to snag Winfree.

Winfree’s college numbers don’t jump off the page, in part because of injuries and in part because he wasn’t afforded much playing time. In his junior season, Winfree caught 21 passes for 325 yards and two touchdowns. As a senior, he caught 28 for 324 and two touchdowns.

Winfree wasn’t invited to the combine but, at his pro day, he measured in just over 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds. He ran a 4.50 40-yard dash with a 33-inch vertical. Winfree was not listed in BSN Denver’s top-200 big board.

The wide receiver is a high-upside pick. If the high-ankle sprain that plagued him last season has healed, he could outplay his sixth-round tag.

The Broncos draft class is now final, assuming Denver doesn’t trade back into the 2019 draft. Here’s who John Elway snagged:

Round 1, pick 20, (No. ): Noah Fant, TE Iowa

Round 2, pick 9, (41): Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas State

Round 2, pick 10, (42) : Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

Round 3, pick 7, (71): Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State

Round 5, pick 18, (156): Justin Hollins, LB, Oregon

Round 6, pick 14, (187): Juwann Winfree, WR, Colorado

Denver also traded for outside linebacker Dekoda Watson, 31, and Pittsburgh’s 2020 third-round pick.
