The Broncos are getting a good one

NCAA Football: California at Washington Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

Former Washington Huskies linebacker Keishawn Bierria fulfilled a life long goal today, when the Denver Broncos announced his selection with the 43rd pick in the 6th round (217 overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Keishawn was a three-year starter for the Huskies and was a reliable cog in the defense. He led the country in fumble recoveries in 2016 during Washington’s run to the College Football Playoff. He struggled at the NFL combine where he finished above the 50th percentile among ILB’s in only one category (broad jump).
