One good center deserves another

One thing is for certain: The snaps will come from Baylor
After trading out of the first round Thursday, the Denver Broncos lined up a defensive tackle (Derek Wolfe), a quarterback (Brock Osweiler) and a running back (Ronnie Hillman) Day 2 of the NFL draft Friday. On Saturday, they filled out their roster with four more picks.
Broncos draft: 3 on O, 4 on D

ENGLEWOOD – The Denver Broncos added depth to their secondary by taking Omar Bolden of Arizona State in the fourth round of the NFL draft.
The team had another fourth-rounder seven spots later at No. 108, courtesy of the deal that sent Tim Tebow to the New York Jets, and with that pick the Broncos bolstered their offensive line by taking center Philip Blake of Baylor.
Bolden didn’t play last season after tearing the ACL in his left knee during spring practice. He also returns kicks, which is an area of need after the Broncos lost Eddie Royal to free agency.
Since trading out of the first round Thursday, the Broncos have been quite busy. They took defensive lineman Derek Wolfe and quarterback Brock Osweiler – Bolden’s teammate at Arizona State – with their second-round picks and traded up to nab running back Ronnie Hillman in the third.
Denver took Malik Jackson of Tennessee in the fifth round of the NFL draft, another rookie to pair with Wolfe.
Jackson began his college career at USC as a defensive end, before transferring to Tennessee after sanctions were imposed on the Trojans.
Jackson played defensive tackle for Tennessee last season, turning in a career-high 56 tackles and 11 tackles for loss. He also had 2½ sacks.
The Broncos used their final pick of the NFL draft on a linebacker, selecting Danny Trevathan of Kentucky in the sixth round Saturday.
That pick also was part of the Jets’ package the Broncos received in the Tebow transaction.
Trevathan had 143 tackles for the Wildcats last season, along with three sacks and four interceptions.
Denver spent an equal amount of time addressing needs on both sides of the ball during the draft: three offensive players and four more on defense.
