Broncos Add Jackson to Defensive Line

Posted Apr 28, 2012

With the No. 137 overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Broncos selected defensive end Malik Jackson.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- With the second pick in the fifth round, the Broncos went back to the defensive line.

At No. 137 overall, Denver selected defensive end Malik Jackson from the University of Tennessee.

The 6-foot-6, 290-pound lineman started his college career at the University of Southern California, but he transferred to the University of Tennessee after sanctions were imposed on USC.

Jackson started 24 games in his collegiate career -- four at defensive end and 20 at defensive tackle.

In that time, he recorded 136 tackles with 13 sacks, 27 tackles for loss, 17 quarterback pressures, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. In addition, he deflected 10 passes and intercepted one, which he returned 44 yards.

In 2011, Jackson was named All-SEC First-Team by the Associated Press, a season after earning second-team honors.

The Broncos' next -- and final -- pick in the 2012 NFL Draft is No. 188 overall, the 18th pick in the sixth round.
