He was “30” visit for the Broncos.
Hollins joins the Broncos draft class that has Iowa TE Noah Fant, Kansas State OL Dalton Risner, Missouri QB Drew Lock, Ohio State DL Dre’Mont Jones.
The Broncos have one more selection in the seventh round.
Here’s GM John Elway’s take on Hollins
Our fifth-round pick, Justin Hollins from Oregon, is a big and athletic linebacker who can play inside and outside. His athleticism also will help us on special teams. pic.twitter.com/zPYJWUExNT— John Elway (@johnelway) April 27, 2019
Justin Hollins was the East-West Shrine Game defensive MVP and the only FBS player last season with at least five sacks (he had 6.5), five forced fumbles and an interception.— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) April 27, 2019
