The final day of the draft is upon us, and rounds four through seven are about to begin. The Broncos have five picks today, starting with No. 108 overall.
Look below for a feature we found on Youtube on one of the newest Broncos, N.C. State linebacker Nate Irving.
10:33 a.m. MDT: The Broncos are on the clock at No. 108 in the fourth round.
10:37 a.m. MDT: The pick is in — Oklahoma safety Quinton Carter. We’ll have more on him on the front of DenverBroncos.com shortly.
11:34 a.m. MDT: The Broncos have traded up to the No. 129 overall selection, and have gone with Portland State tight end Julius Thomas. It was a trade with the Green Bay Packers. The Broncos received No. 129 and a seventh-rounder, No. 204, in exchange for a fifth and sixth rounder, No. 141 and No. 186.
The picks remaining are Nos. 189, 204 and 247. That’s a sixth and two sevenths. We’ll have more on Thomas on the front of DenverBroncos.com shortly.
2:24 p.m. MDT: The Indianapolis Colts are on the clock at No. 188, so the Broncos select next. Sorry for the lack of updates on the blog, with yesterday’s picks visiting the building and so much action on the draft board today, we’re trying to bring you as much content on the front of DenverBroncos.com as possible. Looks like Indy’s pick is in as I type this, so the Broncos are on the clock.
2:26 p.m. MDT: Denver’s pick is in — Mike Mohamed, inside linebacker from California. We’ll have more information on the two-time All-Pac 10 player on the front of DenverBroncos.com shortly.
3:05 p.m. MDT: The Broncos are on the clock with the first pick in the seventh round. Denver has one pick remaining after this one at No. 247.
3:07 p.m. MDT: The pick is in, and it’s Nevada tight end Virgil Green. We’ll have more on Green on the front of DenverBroncos.com shortly.
5:03 p.m. MDT: The Broncos’ final pick is one spot away — Cincinnati is on the clock at No. 246, and Denver’s last selection comes at 247. After the pick, check DenverBroncos.com for more information, and be sure to head to the 2011 NFL Draft page for all the coverage in a central location.
5:05 p.m. MDT: RB Jay Finley from Baylor heads to the Bengals, and the Broncos are on the clock…
5:09 p.m. MDT: The pick is in — it’s Oklahoma defensive end Jeremy Beal. In his career, he racked up 223 tackles and 29 sacks in his career, earning 2010 Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year.
That’ll do it for the draft blog. We’ll have even more content on the site later today.
