Spring in the Mile High City can bring a sense of renewal and promise. As the temperature rises, so does excitement for the upcoming football season.

Every year the NFL draft allows fans a chance to celebrate new talent and upcoming stars. The frantic phone calls, rushing emotions, and bustling bars across the nation all hold their breath when the infamous jingle sounds and the screen indicates a new selection is in. This year was no exception — with arguably one of the most talented and dramatic draft classes in the history of the league — 2014 did not disappoint.
