How to Watch the New NFL Draft – Best of 2016

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will not be drafted in the first round, but he is expected to be selected by the Denver Broncos in the second round. 

If the draft goes as planned, the Broncos will draft a quarterback and a wide receiver.

Broncos GM John Elway, who has been trying to build around Manning for years, will have to work hard to get him to the next level.

He will need to trade him if he does not want to lose him in free agency, which is likely.

The Broncos, as they did in 2012, have the right to match any contract offer.

They could have Manning and his agent meet in person.

Elway could still work to get Manning a long-term deal, but the Broncos can offer him only a one-year deal.

It would be a huge risk to have Manning under contract for so long.

The Denver Broncos, New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots will have the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft.

The Denver Broncos selected quarterback Connor Cook with the No: 18 overall pick.
