DENVER (CBS4) – The Denver Broncos have picked a guard with their fifth pick in the fourth round of the NFL draft.

The team selected Connor McGovern out of Missouri.

McGovern was one of the strongest players in college football and broke weight room records at Mizzou.

“I fell in love with the gym early. That came through my father, who is a body builder. I think it helps a lot, whether it be my actual strength on the field and being able to use it there or as a mental confidence booster. I was always one of the strongest guys on the field,” McGovern said.

“I am comfortable at all positions. I am also comfortable at center. They have not indicated to where I will be starting out, but I believe I can play all three.”
