With their eight draft picks and 15 undrafted free agents - watch out for nosetackle Tyrique Jarrett, safeties Jamal Carter and Orion Stewart and linebacker Deon Hollins - the 2017 Denver Broncos are pretty much set.
Walker played in 12 games as a freshman in 2013, registering 18 tackles and one sack, while helping the Seminoles to their third national championship in school history.
The Broncos' GM, who is also well known as an NFL Hall of Fame quarterback, quickly tweeted out his rationalization for the pick, as well as some appreciation for McKenzie's abilities that would suggest he could see the field early.
Last year, as a college junior, Henderson forced 48 missed tackles - nearly twice as many as the next guy, according to Pro Football Focus. So he was introduced to snow for the FIRST time. This pick was necessary because they needed to add depth and talent to the offensive line.
"You never know how the young guys are going to come in and react, " said Broncos general manager John Elway, who has just completed his 90-man roster with the understanding it's subject to change. "You can tell how he plays". Thus, rest assured that Bolles has a passion for the Broncos no other player can touch.
If you buy two jerseys from this draft, make it Jake Butt's, because your friends will think it's amusing, and because the MI tight end might not be around here long after two knee surgeries, or Henderson's.
"We didn't have anything", McKenzie said.
"Denver was a total surprise", Henderson said from his home in Summerville. "I just started playing receiver when I got to Louisiana Tech", he said.

"It's not about me, it's about my family and all the hard work they put into my journey to get to this point", he said. He's the first U. player since Alex Smith was drafted No. 1 overall to San Francisco in 2005 to be in attendance for the first round of the draft.
I love the pace to his running style.
After serving a Mormon church mission in Colorado Springs for a couple of years, Bolles made a decision to give football another shot, and earned a scholarship to play at Snow College for two years before packing his bags and signing with Utah. McKenzie's offensive potential is almost nonexistent at his size, but he is one of the top pure return men in this year's draft. "He dominated [during his senior season]".
"He's the quickest player I've evaluated on tape in a couple of years", said ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay, who compared him to the Rams' Tavon Austin, another slot receiver.
After declaring for the draft, Bolles quickly moved up the various draft board predictions and was talked about as a potential first-round pick. He'll also have an opportunity to learn from talented veterans like Mike Pouncey while competing to earn time as a rotational offensive lineman.
