ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos didn't grab the defensive tackle they so desperately needed in the NFL draft.

They did get an offensive tackle with a mean streak in the mold of those run-stuffers in Miami's Orlando Franklin.

Franklin moved from left guard to left tackle his junior season but the Hurricanes' dominant drive blocker will play right tackle in Denver.

What Franklin really looks forward to is boring holes for mobile quarterback Tim Tebow or the Broncos running backs.
