Starting next week, the Denver Broncos will visit with draft prospects in preparation for the upcoming NFL Draft.  On Monday, Utah State running back Robert Turbin will visit the team and Michigan State defensive tackle Jerel Worthy has also had a request to visit with the team.

“Since the combine, I have visited Carolina,” Jerel told NFL Network‘s Charley Casserly on Tuesday.   “(Scheduled visits are) St. Louis, Philly called me today as well as Denver — I talked to the Texans a couple of weeks ago.”

According to Worthy, he has already visited the Panthers and the Rams, Eagles, Broncos and Texans would like to schedule visits.  A twenty-one year old Junior, Worthy (6-2, 308 lbs.), is entering the draft after recording 77 tackles and 8.5 sacks through his first two collegiate seasons.

A projected first-round draft pick, Worthy was a two-time All American at Michigan State and is ranked as the third-best defensive tackle in the draft by TheDCTimes.  The Broncos are expected to select at least one defensive tackle in the draft later this month.

     Because you expect the Broncos to pick a DT.  I’ve decided I’m going into the draft expecting them to pick no DTs at all and that way I’ll be pleasantly surprised if they do rather than bitterly disappointed when they don’t

    I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t draft a DT either, but they are expected to.  I don’t expect them to myself, the big wigs do, that’s what I was trying to say…
