Seems like the Broncos going with a “best available” approach here, as outside pass rusher not exactly a position of need with Von Miller, Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett.

Walker tweeted the 8 pass rusher were drafted before him, “PLEASE remember this!!!”

He told Denver media on a conference call that he would have had a chip on his shoulder regardless of where he was drafted. He also said he was excited to learn from Miller, Ray and Shaq.

Broncos have 2 picks coming up in the 3rd round.
