The Broncos have agreed to terms with former first round selection of the Jacksonville Jaguars: Derrick Harvey. Another Defensive End standout from the University of Florida similar to 1st round blunder Jarvis Moss, the Broncos are hoping to resurrect the Gator’s career. Drawing equal comparisons across the two former Florida players might be unfair, Harvey did produce a little more for the Jaguars than Moss ever did with his time in Denver. Harvey racked up 8 sacks after being selected in 2008. Compare that to 3.5 sacks with an extra season thrown in for Moss.
However, the selection of Harvey still has to be seen as a huge disappointment for the Jaguars as a franchise. A sentimate the Bronco front office knows all to well. What may seem like taking a flyer on a guy that you don’t have to pay out that huge rookie contract for, Harvey could end up providing excellent depth at the position for a reasonable price.
