Remember all those years Bronco fans screamed for their team to draft a defensive tackle with their first draft pick? They've now done it two years in a row. After a run of cornerbacks took some of their preferred players out of play, the Broncos selected North Carolina defensive tackle Sylvester Williams with the No. 28 pick. A run of cornerbacks might have hurt the Broncos' initial plan as D.J. Hayden went No. 12 to Oakland, Desmond Trufant went No. 22 to the Atlanta Falcons — who leaped ahead of the Broncos by trading up from No. 30 — and Xavier Rhodes went No. 25 to Minnesota.
