Broncos 2015 draft picks: LB (Round 1) | OL (Round 2) | TE Jeff Heuerman (Round 3)

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.-- In the third round of the NFL Draft, the Broncos added another offensive tool, taking Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman with the 92nd overall selection.

Heuerman played in 51 games in his four-year career at OSU, catching 52 passes for 792 yards and seven touchdowns. His performance in 2014 earned him a second-team All-Big Ten selection for the national champion Buckeyes, a year after he took honorable mention honors as a junior.

Heuerman finished his junior season with 466 yards and four touchdowns on 26 catches, leading all OSU receivers with a 17.9 yards-per-catch average and setting a career-high with 116 yards against Purdue.

The former Buckeye joins free agent signees Owen Daniels, James Casey and Joe Don Duncan at the tight end position, along with incumbents Virgil Green and Dominique Jones.
