The Draft has wound down, and the Denver Broncos are picking back-to-back compensatory 7th round selections. With the 252nd overall pick, Denver selects Josh Furman, a defensive back out of Oklahoma State.
With the 250th pick, the Broncos selected a QB - Trevor Siemian out of Northwestern. With their 251st pick, the Broncos went defensive back, Taurean Nixon out of Tulane. The Broncos earlier drafted Nixon's defensive back teammate, Lorenzo Doss, in the fifth round.
Furman represented their third pick in the 7th round and final pick in the 2015 NFL Draft for the Denver Broncos. He's a 6'1, 210-lbs., and someone who made his own destiny: according to Tulsa World, he approached Oklahoma State about transferring from Michigan after a minimally impacting career there and landed on the Cowboys' team to become an immediate impact player. As of December 27, 2014, Furman had registered 12 tackles for loss and six sacks, ranking him second on the team, to go along with 58 tackles. In three years and 32 games at Michigan, he had 29 tackles, none for a loss.
We'll have more soon, but what do you think of the pick, Broncos Country?
