It will be an all-out celebration as day three of the Denver Broncos’ NFL draft will be held live Saturday at the base of the Mary Jane Territory at Winter Park Resort.

Rounds four through seven of the draft will be held beginning at 10 a.m., with the public invited to attend the celebrations.

Helping to make the picks will be former Broncos safety David Bruton, Miles the Mascot, members of the Broncos Cheerleaders, The Broncos Stampede Drumline and National Sports Center for the Disabled athletes Trevor Kennison and Beth Requist. 

Fans wearing their Broncos gear may also have an opportunity to be incorporated in the team’s selections.

In addition to the draft selections, there’s a full schedule of celebratory events such as a free T-shirt and foam finger giveaway as well as an opportunity to be part of a live national television broadcast on the NFL Network. 

Winter Park hosted the Broncos’ third day draft picks in 2016, when Devontae Booker and Will Parks were selected on the slopes of Mary Jane.
