A bright spotlight illuminates a perfect circle on orange velvet curtains as a crowd of millions waits with bated breath.
Behind the curtains stands a hero, a legend, a god in some circles.
For 37 years, with a short intermission in the middle, this crowd has observed his every move. They watched the first act get off to a slow start before a triumphant finish. They watched the second act start off with a bang before an abrupt and unexpected second "intermission."
Now, they await the final act.
With the excitement of Thursday night's 2020 NFL Draft still fresh, we went back to our Big Board as our guide to grade all six picks from the Denver Broncos and their AFC West rivals.
From thinking they’d have to trade up to having their guy drop into their lap, the Denver Broncos made out like bandits on the opening night of the 2020 NFL Draft.
