The Denver Broncos have begun their draft preparations, setting up visits with two potential first round picks. They will hold private workouts with Ohio State cornerback/safety Malcolm Jenkins, and Connecticut running back Donald Brown. The Broncos also agreed to terms with free agent guard Scott Young.

Jenkins, a 6-1, 201 pound senior out of Ohio State, has set up a private workout with the Broncos. A college cornerback who may move to safety in the NFL, Jenkins had a subpar day at the NFL Combine, running just a 4.55 in the 40. In his pro day in Ohio, however, his times improved to a recorded 4.47. The Broncos brass will work him out next week.

The Broncos also plan to hold a workout with Donald Brown. Brown, the NCAA’s leading rusher last season, has come into the draft as a dark horse, just outside the spotlight of Knowshon Moreno and Beanie Wells. He has risen fast on many draft boards though, and could very easily be a first round pick. The Broncos plan to hold a private session with him before the Husky Pro Day.

The Broncos also signed Scott Young, who is expected to compete for a backup position on the offensive line. Young, 27, is 6-4 312 guard who has had previous stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Cleveland Browns. He was brought in to add depth to the offensive line.
