With the eighteenth pick in the Canal Street Chronicles community mock draft, the Denver Broncos select...
Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU
The Broncos are ecstatic to find Tyson Jackson here and are determined to nab a cornerstone of their 3-4 defense. They could've gone CB here with the top prospects still on the board, or OLB. However with many top prospects at CB and OLB likely to still be available in round two, Jackson has to be the pick here. He racked up 4.5 sacks with 10.5 tackles for a loss last year and has an amazing bull rush making him a prefect end in the 3-4. While lacking elite pass rushing skills, it should not be a problem as a 3-4 end because he has the power and drive to an all star at the position. He can hold his ground very well which will help his LB's get in to stop the run. Jackson has average speed (5.00 40-yard) and strength (20 reps) but has unmatched toughness and determination which will make him a very successful NFL player. It is a no-brainer pick here; he is THE TOP 3-4 player available and will make the Broncos very happy. He can start day one and will help the Broncos horrid defense.
The Tampa Bay Bucaneers are now on the clock...
