The Denver Broncos used their final pick in the 2012 NFL Draft on Kentucky linebacker Danny Trevathan. The pick was included as compensation in the trade that sent former quarterback Tim Tebow to the New York Jets. Trevathan is expected to compete on special teams and add depth to a Denver defense that looked destructive for stretches last season.
Trevathan measures 6-feet tall, 237 lbs. He led the Wildcats with 143 tackles last season.
Trevathan is the third player from the Broncos draft class to sign a contract. Second round selection Derek Wolfe, a defensive tackle out of Cincinnati and Denver's first pick in the 2012 draft, agreed to terms on Monday. The Broncos have also agreed to terms with Arizona St. CB Omar Bolden and Tennessee DE Malik Jackson, the team's fifth round pick.

Barring any trades, the Denver Broncos have made their last selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, grabbing Kentucky Wildcats linebacker Danny Trevathan with the 18th pick (188th overall) of the sixth round. This was the second draft pick the Broncos acquired from the New York Jets as part of the Tim Tebow trade back in March. The Broncos sent its own sixth round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Joe Mays trade.
Trevathan, 6 feet and 237 pounds, led the Wildcats with 143 tackles in 2011. He is similar to former Wildcat and current Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who has become a leader on the special teams.
