The Denver Broncos used the 137th overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft on Tennessee Volunteers defensive end Malik Jackson. 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.
Here are the other Broncos picks so far:
Cincinnati DT Derek Wolfe
Arizona St. QB Brock Osweiler
San Diego St. RB Ronnie Hillman
Arizona St. CB Omar Bolden
Baylor C Philip Blake
