The Denver Broncos weren’t done wheeling and dealing on day three of the 2019 NFL Draft despite moving up and down on the first two days.

John Elway sent the 148th overall pick to San Francisco for veteran linebacker Dekoda Watson, who played in all 16 games for the Broncos in 2016.

The Broncos then drafted Oregon linebacker Justin Hollins with the 156th-overall pick.

Hollins recorded 174 tackles, 35 tackles for loss and 14 sacks over his final three seasons at Oregon, and the versatile linebacker is expected to add depth at the position as well as contributing on special teams.

At 6-5, 248 pounds, Hollins ran an impressive 4.5 40-yard dash, has and was named defensive MVP in the East-West Shrine Game. His freakish athletic ability should help the Broncos in coverage.

Elway also sent the 212th (sixth round) and 237th (seventh round) picks to Carolina to move up to 187, where the Broncos took Colorado wide receiver Juwann Winfree.
