The Broncos draft Darius Kilgo of the University of Maryland with their sixth-round, 203rd overall pick in the NFL draft.

Kilgo, a 6’3”, 319 pound defensive tackle gained a reputation for his physical play and strength. The Broncos have had a depth issues at defensive line since the departure of Terrence Knighton and addressed it with their sixth pick in the draft.

He started all 13 games for the Terrapins in 2014 and was named to the team’s leadership council in 2013 according to the University’s site. He started in 11 games as a sophomore and 12 as a junior.

During his pro day he recorded a 5.3 40-yard dash, 24 inch vertical jump and 33 repetitions on the bench press. He will quickly push the competition in the middle of Wade Phillips 3-4 defense.

Kilgo will join Sylvester Williams, Derek Wolf, Mile Austin Jr. and Vance Walker as they all will be looking to rotate in and out of the lineup during games.
