With the 251st pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select Taurean Nixon, CB. Tulane. Big boundary corner with big speed.— Dion Caputi (@nfldraftupdate) May 2, 2015
Here's a neat pick. The Denver Broncos have now selected not one but two Tulane Green Wave cornerbacks in this draft. Taurean Nixon will get to immediately join his former teammate Lorenzo Doss in Denver training camp this summer after an impressive pro day where he showed of some serious (4.31) speed.
He likely will start as, and may or may not move up from, a nickel corner situation and possibly some time on special teams, but that's a good start and it gets hes foot in the door, which is all Nixon really needs.
