Broncos grab pass rusher in fifth round

Tools

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos have addressed their need for a pass-rusher by selecting defensive end Quanterus Smith from Western Kentucky in the fifth round of the draft.

Smith was the 2012 Sun Belt Player of the Year after finishing his college career with two dozen sacks.

The Broncos acquired the pick — 146th overall — from Green Bay when they traded out of the fourth round for the Packers' fifth- and sixth-round selections earlier Saturday.

The Broncos have another fifth-rounder and one pick in each of the sixth and seventh rounds remaining.

They came into the weekend still needing a pass-rusher following the free agency departure of Elvis Dumervil to the Baltimore Ravens, a move that followed a fax fiasco last month in which the Broncos had to cut him rather than have his $12 million 2013 salary guaranteed.
