Denver sneaks into the NFL draft by taking a defensive lineman
After trading down twice in the first round Thursday, John Elway and the Denver Broncos finally made a pick at No. 36 on Friday, and somewhat of a surprise pick, too: Cincinnati defensive lineman Derek Wolfe.
The Broncos sacked their first-round pick for an extra second-round pick, then chose Cincinnati defensive tackle Derek Wolfe with their first pick in the NFL draft.
Denver drafts Manning’s heir apparent

ENGLEWOOD – The Denver Broncos selected a quarterback for Peyton Manning to mentor, taking Brock Osweiler from Arizona State with their second pick in the second round of the NFL draft.
The team decided on versatile defensive lineman Derek Wolfe with the No. 36 overall pick Friday night.
The 6-7 Osweiler is a raw but talented quarterback who threw for 4,036 yards and 26 touchdowns last season for the Sun Devils. He could be the heir apparent under center when Manning calls it a career.
After the pick, Broncos boss John Elway tweeted: “Excited that Brock Osweiler is going to be a Bronco. Very talented & will have a great opportunity to learn from one of the best.”
Denver orchestrated a deal with Cleveland to move up in the third round and select San Diego State running back Ronnie Hillman with the 67th overall pick in the NFL draft.
In the swap, Denver sent the Browns its third-round pick, No. 87 overall, and a fourth-rounder (No. 120).
A workhorse for the Aztecs, Hillman finished his career with 3,243 yards rushing. That’s third on the school’s all-time list, trailing only Marshall Faulk (4,589 yards) and Larry Ned (3,462).
Hillman more than likely will serve as the backup for Willis McGahee, who led the team in rushing with 1,199 yards last season.
