CLEVELAND, OHIO (KELO) — The Denver Broncos added a talented defensive back with the eighth pick of the NFL draft as they took Patrick Surtain II from Alabama.
Surtain was named the 2020 SEC Defensive Player of the Year.
The Broncos top team needs were quarterback, offensive line, linebacker, defensive line and running back.
Denver traded for Teddy Bridgewater on Wednesday, April 28, which may have helped them pass on Justin Fields and Mac Jones.
The Broncos next pick will be in round two.
