The excitement at Radio City Music Hall on day two of the 2014 NFL draft extended out to Dove Valley in the second round, when the Broncos moved up seven spots to add wide receiver Cody Latimer from Indiana.
General manager John Elway was all smiles when talking about his new offensive weapon:
He was high on our board and so we were waiting and trying to be patient with it and see how many guys were going to get down to us. The players that we wanted, once they started disappearing, that’s when we decided we wanted to move up and make sure that Cody was still there. He was our target at that time when we moved up so we felt it was time to move and so we’re thrilled to get Cody there.
In the third round of the draft, the Broncos added more versatility and depth to the offensive line when they selected offensive tackle Michael Schofield out of Michigan. With their first three picks all coming from the same college conference, Elway said: “Pretty soon they’re going to start calling us the Big Ten Broncos.”
Now that the second day has concluded for the Broncos, it's time to look ahead to Day 3 of the NFL draft. Here's a look at the Broncos current situation as we enter the final day of the draft.
