ENGLEWOOD, Colo. —With the 217th-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos selected Washington linebacker Keishawn Bierria.
The Broncos acquired the pick in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams sent picks 6-183 and 6-217 to the Denver for the 160th-overall pick.
The Broncos have now selected two linebackers on Day 3 of the NFL Draft. The 6-foot, 230-pound redshirt senior joins Josey Jewell as another rookie in Linebackers Coach Reggie Herring's room.
Bierria was a four-year player for the Washington Huskies, and he totaled 60 tackles and four tackles for loss in 2017.
As a redshirt junior Bierria led the nation in fumble recoveries as Washington advanced to the College Football Playoff.
