After a very long stretch due to the Denver Broncos trading their fifth and sixth round picks to jump back into the fourth round to draft power forward tight end Julius Thomas, the Broncos finally picked another inside linebacker, Mike Mohamed out of California.
“Mike Mohamed is a versatile player with experience at all three linebacker positions. Smart, good instincts and will contribute on special teams,” John Elway stated via Twitter.
Mohamed was Cal’s ‘most honored player’ as a senior. One of 16 national finalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy (the “Academic Heisman”) and a quarter-finalist for The Lott Impact Trophy.
He led Cal with 95 tackles and placed second in the Pac-10 averaging 8.6 tackles per game. He only missed one game his entire career in college.
Two safeties, three linebackers (two inside) for Denver so far this draft weekend. Could Mohamed be yet another special teams ace for the Broncos? You tell us Broncos Country.
