In the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select Georgia Tech defensive lineman Adam Gotsis

The Broncos added depth to their defensive line by selecting Georgia Tech's Adam Gotsis. He's a 6'4", 287lb defensive end who will compete for reps behind Vance Walker, Jared Crick, and Kenny Anunike.

He is a team captain who over from Australia and is still learning American rules football. He played Australian rules football growing up, so he is still developing. He is a high motor, gritty guy who will be a pain in the trenches.

The Broncos have the best defensive line coach in the game with Bill Kollar so he must have approved of this before he selected.

The one downside is that Gotsis is coming off a torn ACL in late October. He says he should be fully healed by September.

What's your take, Broncos Country?
