Broncos take Defensive End with First Pick

Broncos trade up to grab Florida Defensive End Jarvis Moss with their number one selection.

The Denver Broncos traded picks in the first, third and sixth round to the Jacksonville Jaguars for the 17th pick in the draft and selected University of Florida defensive end Jarvis Moss.

The Broncos will now have four picks left in the draft.

Jarvis Moss - Defensive End
Height: 6-6 | Weight: 250 | 40-Time: 4.62

Strengths: A Very aggressive athlete that plays big with a good motor. He has outstanding awareness and quick feet with a burst that you don't see in defensive ends. Jarvis can go sideline to sideline with ease and makes plays with his speed. He is strong and versatile who plays a true 4-3 outside defensive scheme. Jarvis is one of only a few players that can play DT and DE positions. Big and physical on the line and rarely gives up the big play. The intangibles' are limitless and will be a leader on and off the field.

Weakness: Lack of bulk might not be a weakness as it is a concern. Good motor but runs out in the 4th quarter. His height is the ideal size you look for in a defensive end but he plays too low, which is why he struggles with blitzing situations. Mobility and durability are a concern with a team that has little depth at the position.

The Broncos couldn't have asked for a better situation with Moss who is often compared to Javon Kearse. With a power end who constantly requires the double team, it should free up room for the linebackers to make big plays. Moss is a tough player whose unlimited potential could make him a potential Pro Bowler very soon.
