Broncos guaranteed 2nd- to 6th-pick overall

Wins by Denver, Cincinnati, Washington and Detroit today have assured that the Broncos will select no worse than 6th overall in next April's draft. However, with the Broncos' victory over the Texans, the Carolina Panthers have now won are now locked into the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes first overall choice. A loss at home next Sunday to San Diego would ensure that Denver picks 2nd overall, while a victory could drop them potentially as low as 6th, behind Carolina, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Dallas and one of either Arizona or San Francisco.
