2016 NFL mock draft: Kevin Dodd to Broncos

31 picks later, our Buffalo Rumblings community mock has come to a close!

With pick No. 31 in the 2016 Buffalo Rumblings Community Mock Draft, the Denver Broncos, and general manager Anthony Marino, have selected Kevin Dodd, defensive end from Clemson. Here's what he had to say about the pick:

While many may have expected Denver to select a quarterback, I did not feel there was a prospect worthy of a first round selection.  With the departure of Malik Jackson, the Broncos are in need of help at defensive end. They may have recently signed Jared Crick in free agency, but in now way does Crick have the ability to replace Jackson.

In comes Dodd, a one-year starter at Clemson.  While some may argue that he does not have enough experience, the upside for Dodd is high enough that he is worth the pick at #31.  Dodd becomes another piece of Wade Phillips defense that can terrorize offensive linemen, and joins an established defense where he won't be expected to come in as the savior.  Teaming Dodd with Von Miller and Derek Wolfe will help keep the Broncos defense at an elite level.

With this pick, the one round Buffalo Rumblings Community Mock has come to a close! Thanks to everyone who participated in the event as a GM or who followed along to comment on the choices!
