Watch Patrick Surtain get his first pick six in the NFL

Denver Broncos rookie cornerback and first round pick Patrick Surtain took one to the house against the Minnesota Vikings.

It didn’t take long in the Denver Broncos first preseason game for their first round pick to shine. Patrick Surtain II jumped a pass in the first half and took it to the house for a touchdown for his first NFL interception and his first pick six - albeit in the preseason/

That touchdown put the Broncos up 23-3 over the Vikings as the offense accounted four two touchdown drives in that first half as well. One an 80-yard bomb from Drew Lock to KJ Hamler and another a long drive capped by another Lock touchdown. The defense accounted for a safety and this pick six by Surtain.

There is a lot of fan chatter about the Broncos passing on Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields in the first round, but if this is what we’re going to see a lot from Surtain over the next decade then we’re not going to be sad about that decisions at all.
