2016 NFL Draft order: Three rounds set after the Super Bowl

The first 95 selections are in place. What order could Denver and Carolina go following the Super Bowl?

With the Super Bowl over, all football eyes turn toward the 2016 NFL Draft. With every game played, we know the order of the first 95 selections in the draft.

The rest of the draft order will be set at the NFL owners meeting in March, when compensatory picks are announced. A few selected compensatory picks could be tacked onto the end of the third round. One could go to Detroit for losing Ndamukong Suh, and another could go to New England after losing Darrelle Revis in free agency after last season.

That's all to come. Now that we know where Denver and Carolina are picking, their draft needs can be pinpointed.

The Broncos may have won the Super Bowl, but they'll have some work to do this offseason. Denver's draft needs will be largely dependent on what happens in free agency. Von Miller is a free agent after this season, and could cash in big time. Even if he's franchised, the Broncos could look for a pass rusher early, especially considering DeMarcus Ware will be 34 at the start of next season.

Starting running back C.J. Anderson is also a free agent, albeit a restricted one, and there could be some good options there for Denver if he's not brought back. The offensive line could also be a key point of upgrading in Denver. Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan, key starters on defense, are also free agents. They'll also have to figure out a quarterback situation, as Peyton Manning may retire and backup Brock Osweiler will be a free agent.

Carolina doesn't have as many big-name free agents after budding star cornerback Josh Norman. Right tackle Mike Remmers is a free agent, and if his Super Bowl performance against Miller is any indication, the Panthers would be wise to find his replacement.

For now, here's every set pick in the 2016 NFL Draft:
