Broncos may be in market for offensive lineman on Day 2
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos may be in the market for an offensive lineman or perhaps even another quarterback — Peyton Manning isn’t getting any younger — on Day 2 of the NFL draft Friday.
Offensive lineman T.J. Clemmings of Pittsburgh remains on the board. So does Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson. The Broncos have a second-round selection (59th overall) and a third-rounder (92nd) on Friday.
Denver took Missouri pass-rusher Shane Ray with the 23rd pick Thursday. Considered by many a top-15 pick, Ray plummeted down the draft board after he was issued a misdemeanor citation Monday morning when a trooper found a small amount of marijuana in his car.
The Broncos moved up five spots to pick Ray, sending offensive lineman Manny Ramirez and the 28th pick to Detroit along with a fifth-round pick this year and a fifth-rounder next year to move up.
