The defensive makeover continues as the Broncos selected Texas Tech DB Darcel McBath with their 2nd Round pick, #48 overall.

The Broncos have a definite strategy so far in this draft, going after highly productive college players with a nose for the football.  McBath is no exception, having picked off 7 passes in 2008 returning two for touchdowns.

Overall, McBath started 39 of 45 games in his career at Tech, mostly at safety.  The Broncos needed to overhaul the secondary and they have done so with Smith and McBath. 

It is true that neither of these guys are household names, but worry not Broncos fans, both of these guys have skill and ability.  They know how to go get the football and were highly productive.
