Saturday, April 28, 2012
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos used their final pick of the NFL draft on a linebacker, selecting Danny Trevathan of Kentucky in the sixth round on Saturday.
The pick was part of the package the Broncos received in the deal that sent Tim Tebow to the New York Jets. Denver also netted a fourth-round pick, using it to take Baylor center Philip Blake.
Trevathan had 143 tackles for the Wildcats last season, along with three sacks and four interceptions.
Denver spent an equal amount of time addressing needs on both sides of the ball during the draft. The Broncos took three offensive players and four more on defense, including Arizona State cornerback Omar Bolden in the fourth round on Saturday and defensive end Malik Jackson in the fifth.
