2011 NFL Draft Results: S Rahim Moore Selected By Denver Broncos With 45th Pick

With the 13th pick of the second round (45th overall), the Denver Broncos selected UCLA FS Rahim Moore. He is the first safety taken in the 2011 NFL Draft. A six-foot-tall, 202-pound safety, Moore will be able to learn from Brian Dawkins in the secondary. He had 14-career interceptions for the Bruins, but could bulk up to become a more physical quarterback.

Shannon Sharpe announced this selection, and Moore was in attendance in the green room. He broke into tears as he walked to the stage.

Denver addressed a major need on their defense. Where will they go with the 46th pick?

The second round of the 2011 NFL draft is underway. Day two of the draft will feature the second round with seven minutes between each pick and the third round with five minutes between each pick.
