ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos took another linebacker in the draft, selecting Mike Mohamed of California in the sixth round Saturday.
The 6-foot-2, 238-pound Mohamed was rated eighth among inside linebackers in Mel Kiper Jr.'s 2011 Draft Report, ahead of North Carolina State's Nate Irving, who was selected by the team in the third round.
Denver also took Von Miller of Texas A&M with the second overall pick as the team tries to fix the league's worst defense.
Mohamed can play both inside and outside linebacker, splitting time between both spots in his time with the Bears. He finished with 339 tackles in his career, the fourth-best total in school history.
