Broncos select WR Tyrie Cleveland with 252nd overall pick


ENGLEWOOD, Colorado – The Broncos added a final piece to their attack when they drafted wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland with the 252nd pick overall in the 2020 NFL draft.

Cleveland has appeared in 46 career games for the Gators in his four-year career and has caught 79 passes for 1,271 yards and eight touchdowns.

“I bring a lot of speed,” said Cleveland. “I bring a lot of athletics. I’m a guy who’s going to come in, try to win games for the organization and bring that organization back into a Super Bowl. I am ready to work. I am ready to enter, work hard and compete. I’m ready to bring a Super Bowl back to Denver. “

Cleveland started 26 games – including 12 in 2018 – and had a career high in receptions in 2019.

The former Gator could also contribute to special teams, where he has seen a lot of time in Florida.

“Everything the coaches want me to do, [wherever] they got me, I’m just going to work hard and try my best to go out there and make games and just keep fighting and keep getting better, “said Cleveland.

The Broncos added three wide receivers to the draft, taking Jerry Jeudy in the first round and KJ Hamler with their second choice.
