The Denver Broncos used the 137th overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft on Tennessee Volunteers defensive end . The Broncos acquired the pick from the St. Louis Rams in the Brandon Lloyd trade back in October. Because Lloyd caught 30 passes for the Rams, the Broncos' initial sixth-round pick moved to a fifth-round pick, second pick of the round.
Jackson, 6 feet 5 and 284 pounds, had 56 total tackles in 2011 with 11.5 tackles for a loss and 2.5 sacks. He had 10.5 sacks over his first three years, including five as a junior in 2010. He could potentially moved between end and tackle, but he will certainly rotate in and out on defense.
