Harvey Ready to Compete

Posted Aug 2, 2011

Defensive end Derrick Harvey is looking forward to a new start in Denver.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos defense is looking for a fresh start after a disappointing season.
Defensive lineman Derrick Harvey is looking for a fresh start to his career after three seasons in Jacksonville.
Seems like a good match.
Both parties believed that to be so, and on Monday, Harvey -- who was selected 8th overall in the 2008 draft -- signed with the Broncos and took in his first practice at Dove Valley.
"I'm just taking this opportunity and taking advantage of it," Harvey said. "Right now, I'm just coming in and trying to compete to make the team and fit in well."

Harvey and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley were both added to the line on Monday, and Defensive Coordinator Dennis Allen said the club is excited about what they will bring.

"I think both of them were athletic," Allen said. "Broderick has been a strong, powerful guy inside. Derrick has really been the same way playing out at the end position. I think just having some size and some athleticism and some bulk to be able to play the runner are two of their top qualities."
Harvey will add depth to the line as he competes for time at defensive end in the Broncos 4-3 scheme.
The former Florida Gator was a star in college -- finishing with 20.5 career sacks -- and the Jaguars took notice of the local product, drafting him with their first pick in the 2008 draft.
But after accumulating 88 tackles, eight sacks, five passes defensed and an interception in three seasons as a Jaguar, the 6-foot-5, 268-pound defensive end was waived, became an unrestricted free agent and the Broncos came calling.
Harvey knows what was expected of him coming out of college, and he is looking forward to learning from past mistakes and reviving his career.
"I know where I was drafted and I know the hard work I put in," Harvey said. "Honestly, I think it (experience in Jacksonville) helped me grow up. It helped me a lot -- to take this game more seriously and become a student of the game, take better care of my body. I learned from it.
"It's time to move on and I'm here with the Broncos now trying to start my new career."
