With the 67th pick in the 2011 NFL draft, the Denver Broncos selected LB Nate Irving.
Out of NC State, Irving stands 6'1" and weighs 240 pounds. He was a first team All-ACC linebacker at NC State.
The Broncos had one of the worst defenses in the NFL last year and they've focused on defense early. With LB Von Miller already in the fold, it's clear that upgrading their linebackers is a priority for the Broncos.
