DHF will have more analysis later, because it’s impossible to have too much analysis, but here’s a look at the Broncos’ draft picks in Day Three in the NFL Draft. Of the four players drafted, three are on defense:
The Skinny: College teammate of QB Brock Osweiler, who was drafted by Denver in Round 2. Bolden missed all of the 2011 season with a torn ACL. Had he not been injured, NFL Network’s Mike Mayock suspected Bolden was 2nd round-caliber.
Round 4: #108, Philip Blake (C) – Baylor
The Skinny: The 26-year-old Canadian was Robert Griffin III’s center in 2011, but Blake has – and will for the Broncos – play guard.
Round 5: #137, Malik Jackson (DT) – Tennessee
The Skinny: A USC transfer, Jackson played defensive tackle last season at Tennessee, but has also played defensive end – dating back to his days at USC. Jackson expects to play DE for Denver.
Round 6: #188, Danny Trevathan (LB) – Kentucky
The Skinny: Let the comparisons to Wesley Woodyard (also a Kentucky Wildcat) begin. Trevathan is a bit undersized at linebacker, but is relentless and physical.
