Jackson has the potential to also play defensive tackle, but he will definitely be a rotational player at defensive end. The Broncos drafted Jackson with the selection the team received from the St. Louis Rams as a result of the Brandon Lloyd trade.
On Thursday, the team signed fourth-round pick CB Omar Bolden to a four-year contract to be the first Broncos rookie to officially join the team.

- Round 2: DT Derek Wolfe
