The Denver Broncos started off day three using the second of their the three picks they acquired by trading with the San Francisco 49ers in the second round.
Amidst local clamoring and blog chatter questioning the lack of defensive tackles on Denver’s list of 2011 draft picks the Broncos selected safety for the second time this draft. Quinton Carter out of Oklahoma.
“Quinton Carter is a big, strong safety who we had rated very high on our draft board. happy that he fell to us and is a Bronco,” John Elway tweeted seconds after the pick was announced.
Carter (6’1″, 208 lbs.), a 2010 All American who can play either strong or free safety he collected 88 tackles and four interceptions to finish out the year on the 2010 Jim Thorpe Watch List.
Another safety? Sure Denver has some age there, but they also have a lot of youth. What say you Broncos Country?
