ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- With their last pick of the NFL draft Saturday, the Denver Broncos addressed their needs on the defensive front by taking Jeremy Beal of Oklahoma.
Beal, a defensive end, had 29 career sacks, a total that's second in Sooners history. He also finished with 224 career tackles.
The Broncos used six of their nine picks on defense, but the 6-foot-3, 267-pound Beal was the first to shore up a defensive line that contributed to the team's struggles against the run.
Denver turned to the Oklahoma program for another player as well, taking safety Quinton Carter in the fourth round.
