Bolles Drafted in First Round

Now on the field, Bolles will join former Utah running back and current Bronco, Devontae Booker, who was drafted in 2016 as a fourth round pick. After Day 2 of the National Football League draft Friday, they believe they've done just that.

Even though Denver has holes, there's still too much talent so it's quite possible it could package multiple picks to move up in a round or trade 2017 picks for 2018 selections.

"I want to congratulate DeMarcus and his family on being selected by the Denver Broncos", Fisher said.

What makes this achievement all the more special for him and his family is the long haul the 24-year-old had to go through to get to where he is now. He holds the NCAA Division I record for consecutive games with a touchdown with 35.

Safe to say he's made a believer out of John Elway.

"I just want to be a great father".

In his first three drafts, Elway had a five second-round picks and the only one who reached a second contract in Denver was Wolfe, the 36th overall pick in 2012.

This year in free agency, Elway beefed up the defensive line by signing veteran nose tackle Domata Peko and defensive end Zach Kerr.

Elway said that's not the case in Denver. The CB totaled 6 interceptions and 2 punt return touchdowns in 2016.

Walker almost doubled Garrett's tackle and sack totals last season, and he was more productive in games against Southeastern Conference competition, despite playing just two games against SEC teams.

At 6-4 and 280 pounds, he looks to be a ideal fit as a defensive lineman in the 3-4 scheme.

Walker was a consensus All-American in 2016 and was named Atlantic Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

Henderson's growth and development as a player are still trending upwards, yet Henderson still needs to continue to get better in a number of areas. He's also a threat as a returner, finishing with 805 yards on 25 kickoff returns as a senior.

Henderson excelled in the Louisiana Tech spread offense in three seasons, averaging 19.6 yards per catch and scoring 30 touchdowns. Henderson (5'8/208) graduated as Coastal Carolina's all-time leader in carries (721), rushing yards (4,635), rushing TDs (58), and yards per carry (6.43), adding 97 career receptions as a 39-game starter.

And while some may not be able to point to the moment when all they have imagined actually became possible, Bolles said for him it was a hot August day in 2011.

Bolles' story became fairly well known in the pre-draft swirl.
