Broncos Draft Picks 2012: Kentucky's Danny Trevathan Goes To Broncos In 6th Round

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.
