The Broncos weren’t slated to make their first selection of the 2023 draft until No. 67 in the third round.

But the club traded with Detroit to make the last pick of the second round at No. 63 overall.

And with the first selection of the Sean Payton era, the Broncos drafted receiver Marvin Mims Jr. out of Oklahoma.

Mims was a two-year starter for the Sooners and was the program’s most productive receiver in 2022. He caught 54 passes for 1,083 yards with six touchdowns last season, becoming a first-team All-Big 12 honoree.

He also led the team in receiving yards in 2021 when he caught 32 passes for 705 yards. Back in 2020, he had 37 receptions for 610 yards in 11 games.

Mims joins a talented receiving corps in Denver, led by Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy.

The Lions received No. 68 and No. 139 in exchange for No. 63 and No. 183.

  1. Uhh, wrong. It’s exactly what we needed. Courtland Sutton, and Tim Patrick are entering the final guaranteed years of their contracts. So that puts Mims starting next year.

  2. Pretty good deal for the Lions. Obviously they didn’t have a player jumping off the board in the next 5 picks. To get the 11th pick in the 4th round vs the 20th or so in the 5th can be a big deal.
