Broncos select Georgia WR Tavarres King 161st overall

With their second fifth-round pick (their own), the Broncos took Georgia wide receiver Tavarres King at #161 overall.

King led all Bulldogs receivers last season across the board, with his 42 receptions, 950 yards, 22.6 per-catch average, and nine touchdowns.

The 6-0, 189-lb. receiver, who will turn 23 in July, ran a 4.47-second forty at the national combine. His 2,602 career receiving yards rank fourth in Georgia history, while his 21 receiving touchdowns are third all-time.

Tavarres was redshirted during his freshman 2008 season, after then-and-again teammate Knowshon Moreno rolled King's ankle four games into the season.

King says the two players remain close.
