Denver Broncos Select Moore, Franklin

With the 45th and the 46th overall picks in the NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select Rahim Moore, S, UCLA and Orlando Franklin, RT, Miami.

Rahim Moore continues the Defensive theme in the Broncos draft, as he is a huge talent at this point in the draft and the consensus number 1 Safety. Moore is a smooth athlete and game changer who can not only make the big play but then take it for more yards. He is a mature leader and a great competitor.

Orlando Franklin is sort of a pivot point in the Broncos draft. Franklin is probably the end of Ryan Harris's tenure as Right Tackle in Denver. Many will be upset with the fact that we decided not to draft one of the blue chip Defensive Tackles that are still available. That said, Franklin is a good player. He is a thumper who plays with good leverage and a hard nose. He mauls the other teams' defense with elite strength.

More coming as our information about the pick becomes more clear...
