The Denver Broncos focused on defense with two of their three 3rd round draft picks Friday in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Broncos scooped up Iowa cornerback Michael Ojemudia with the 77th overall pick. Later in the draft, Denver picked LSU offensive lineman Lloyd Cushenberry 83rd overall before selecting Arkansas defensive tackle McTelvin Agim 95th.

4th round, 118th overall

5th round, 178th overall

6th round, 181st overal

7th round, 252nd overall

7th round, 254th overall
