Broncos select RB Devon Achane in 2023 NFL mock draft

In his recent three-round NFL mock draft for Touchdown Wire, Doug Farrar has the Denver Broncos selecting a running back in the third round.

Farrar’s mock draft has Denver first selecting Iowa State edge rusher Will McDonald IV at no. 67 overall. McDonald has been a popular pick for the Broncos in mock drafts.

After that, the Broncos are immediately back on the clock with pick no. 68 and Farrar has them selected Texas A&A running back Devon Achane with their second pick in the third round.

Achane (5-8, 188 pounds) ran a 40-yard dash in 4.32 seconds at the NFL combine earlier this offseason. Achane totaled 3,543 all-purpose yards and scored 28 touchdowns in three seasons (28 games) with the Aggies.

The small, speedy running back rushed for 1,102 yards last season, averaging 5.6 yards per carry. Achane also totaled 36 receptions for 196 receiving yards and returned 11 kickoffs for 312 yards in 2022. He scored as a rusher (eight), receiver (three) and returner (one) as a junior.

Denver is expected to bring in several running backs this offseason Javonte Williams facing an uncertain recovery timeline.
