Defensive Tackle Brodrick Bunkley is the next Denver Bronco we will review. Bunkley was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1st round (14th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft after a stellar 4 year college career at Florida State. Brodrick appeared in 15 games as a rookie and in 2007, he moved into the starting Defensive Tackle spot alongside Mike Patterson. He made 30 Tackles and 3 Sacks that season. After becoming the starter, Bunkley started 52 straight games up until Week 5 of the 2010 season, when he suffered ligament and nerve damage to his left elbow. He totaled 262 tackles (146 solo), six sacks (25 yds.) and three fumble recoveries in his 5 seasons with Philadelphia. On July 30, 2011, Brodrick was traded to the Browns in exchange for a 5th-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, but the trade was nullified after Bunkley didn't show up in Cleveland. Instead, the Eagles swapped him to the Broncos for an unspecified pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
