Broncos hosted Louisville LB Preston Brown

According to Jeff Legwold, the Broncos hosted Louisville linebacker Preston Brown in recent weeks.

The 6-1, 251-pounder posted slow 40 times of 4.86 seconds at combine and 4.79 seconds at the Cards' pro day.

In four seasons at Louisville, Brown tallied 301 total tackles (21.5 for loss), seven sacks, one interception, six passes defensed, and three forced fumbles.

As a senior, he set career highs in solo tackles (71), TFL (12.5), sacks (4.5), and forced fumbles (3).

The Cincy native played the Sam in 2011 and started his last two seasons at Mike.

Nolan Nawrocki describes him as a likely "two-down thumper" at the NFL level.

Of course, Denver drafted two if its most notable defenders out of Louisville - IAOFM Patron Saint Tom Jackson, and Elvis Dumervil.
