ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos are working on the Orange Crush defense Version 2.0.

After selecting the best pass-rusher in the draft in Texas A&M's Von Miller in the first round, the Broncos, under new defensive-minded head coach John Fox, traded down nine spots in the second round Friday night and selected UCLA safety Rahim Moore with the 45th overall pick.

Moore, who twice earned All-Pac-10 accolades while starting all 37 games of his college career, said he looks forward to soaking up all the knowledge he can from veteran safety Brian Dawkins.

One selection later, the Broncos chose offensive lineman Orlando Franklin of Miami, who said he was told he'd step in at right tackle in Denver after playing left guard and then left tackle for the Hurricanes.
