Denver Broncos Swap Defensive Linemen

The Broncos made a roster move to shake up their defensive line competition on Tuesday.

The Denver Broncos news hasn't slowed to a complete halt on their day off from training camp.

The team signed rookie free agent defensive lineman Lars Koht on Tuesday. In order to make space for Koht on the 90-man roster, the Broncos waived another undrafted rookie defensive lineman and Shepherd alum, Shaniel Jenkins.

http://www.scout.com/nfl/broncos/story/1688594-mhh-premium-how-you-can-s...Koht played his college ball for the Florida International Golden Panthers, where he wreaked havoc on their defensive line. In 2015, Koht racked up a total of 47 tackles, eight tackles for loss, four sacks, and one forced fumble.

After not hearing his name called in the 2015 NFL Draft, Koht had a brief stint with the Seattle Seahawks that amounted to a rookie mini-camp appearance. He was cut briefly thereafter.

At six-foot-five and 283 pounds, Koht fits the prototype of a Wade Phillips defensive end. With a defensive front as supremely deep and talented as the Broncos, Koht will have to really put on a show in training camp and preseason just to make an impression on not just the Broncos, but the 31 other teams watching as well.

There's also more to Koht than just being the second Lars to join the Broncos this offseason. According to the American Sports Network, Koht has achieved the prestigious honor of black belt in the exciting realm of martial arts. That's definitely one the scouts can throw in the "positive" category when studying Koht's game.

His first chance to try out his karate-chop action on guards, centers, and tackles will be tomorrow morning, when the Broncos resume training camp.
