The Denver Broncos have made their second selection in the 2008 NFL Draft. With the 11th pick in the 2nd round (42nd overall), Denver selected wide receiver Eddie Royal out of Virginia Tech. At 5’10”, 182 lbs., Royal is as small as they come in the NFL, yet he posted some of the best numbers in the 40-yard dash (4.39 – 4th), bench press (24 – 1st), vertical jump (36.0 – 7th), and 60-yard shuffle (11.66 – 10th)among wide receivers at the combine.
The Broncos next pick is in the 4th round, which takes place tomorrow. We’ll have much more, including our opinions, in a bit!
