Broncos looking for immediate help for Manning

The Denver Broncos are building around their new quarterback Peyton Manning with the immediate future in mind. No three-year plans, no long-term solutions, no projects. Not anymore.

Manning is 36 and coming off a season in which he had more neck operations (four) than passes (zero), and after committing $96 million to the league's only four-time MVP, the Broncos need to do everything they can to see to it that their investment pays immediate dividends.

They lured a number of free agents after winning the Manning sweepstakes and now it's time to augment those additions through the draft.

They own the 25th pick in each of the first three rounds along with four picks on Saturday, three of which they received for trading receiver Brandon Lloyd and quarterback Tim Tebow.
