Denver Broncos add to defense


The Denver Broncos kept attacking the defensive side of the ball without addressing their greatest need.

Denver took Oklahoma safety Quinton Carter with the 108th pick in the fourth round. He is a strong safety and will likely get a chance to replace Brian Dawkins at some point, perhaps soon.

With the No. 45 pick, Denver took UCLA safety Rahim Moore. He is expected to be the instant starter at free safety, replacing Renaldo Hill. Moore and Carter are among the best safety prospects in a weak class.

Denver has taken four defensive players in its first five picks but has yet to draft a defensive tackle -- despite it being a trouble area. Denver coach John Fox said on Friday night that the team will address the position when free agency starts.
