Tulane CB Taurean Nixon Selected By Denver Broncos with Pick #251

A speedy corner heads out to the Mile High City, and gets to rejoin a familiar face.

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.
