Speculation is growing that the Denver Broncos could draft Michigan linebacker Devin Bush. Why would he be a great pick for them?
The 2019 NFL Draft is rapidly approaching, which means we don’t have a lot of time left to speculate.
Although I love talking about the Draft after the fact as much as the next person, I love talking about hypotheticals and different players or situations we can all consider.
The Denver Broncos have a number of players they will consider in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Armed with the 10th overall pick, the Broncos are at an interesting juncture where someone great could fall to them, they could trade down and accumulate more picks, or they could sit at 10 and just pick someone they feel fills an immediate need.
One player who would seemingly fill an immediate need is Michigan linebacker Devin Bush.
Bush, an All-American selection for a stellar Wolverines defense, was a team captain and leader who earned Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year honors for his final season on campus, in which he racked up 66 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, and 4.5 sacks.
He also finished his Michigan career with 11 pass breakups and an interception, showing he is also quite capable in coverage.
Why would Devin Bush be a fit for the Denver Broncos, especially in the first round with a top 10 draft pick? Let’s take a look at all there is to love about this possibility.
