The Broncos stayed put with their original 6th-Round draft pick and used it to select another Linebacker in Mike Mohamed. The 6'3", 241-pound from Cal is a guy who could fit anywhere from inside/middle linebacker to strong safety as a Bronco, but ultimately projects as a SAM Linebacker. He is a sure tackler with a nose for the ball,  possessing better "game speed" on the field than he 4.65 40-Time shows. 

Mike played in a variety of formations with the Bears, including 3-4 Inside and the MIKE and WILL  in the 4-3. Another pick who can match-up well with a Tight End, Mohamed can turn and run with receivers and will make plays on the ball in coverage.

While it may be intriguing for Bronco fans to accept the perceived blight in selecting Defensive Linemen in such a deep draft at the position, the Team has a rich tradition of great Line backing Corps and it appears that the EFX crew is leading a return to that rich history. There is still a requirement for Interior Defensive Linemen, but the "Back seven" on Defense for the Broncos is prepared for a grueling season with some quality depth, if not a new set of starters.

It is a wonderful feeling to know that our favorite team is working the problem of improving one of the worst Defenses statistically the Broncos ever fielded in 2010.

Go Broncos!
