Tom Nalen

April is upon us, and as all Bronco fans knows, that means the NFL Draft. I thought I would start the month with one of the best draft choices the Broncos have ever had. Tom Nalen was drafted in the 7th round out of Boston College in 1994. He would go on to play 194 games (188 starts) for the Broncos over the next 14 years before retiring after the 2008 season. Over the course of his career, #66 played in 5 Pro Bowls and won 2 Super Bowls. He was named the starting center on the Broncos 50th Anniversary team. Should be about 3 more years before we see his name on the Ring of Fame. He was also known for being super photogenic.
