According to Woody Paige of Around The Horn fame, the Denver Broncos like a linebacker out of the University of Kentucky. Shocker, I know. Paige tweeted that Denver has interest in Avery Williamson because of the success the franchise has had in the past with Wildcats on defense.
Williamson is Kentucky’s only real NFL prospect this year and there isn’t a lot of chatter about him out there; this is the first thing we’ve really heard lately. Meanwhile, ESPN has dissected its projected top 10 on the hour, every hour, for the last month.
NFLDraftScout.com predicts Williamson will get picked up in the fourth or fifth round. The draft starts Thursday night.
