ENGLEWOOD, Colo. —

The Denver Broncos have selected Virginia Tech offensive tackle Vinston Painter in the sixth round of the NFL draft.

Painter is more comfortable at left tackle but could back up both Ryan Clady on the left side and Orlando Franklin on the right side. He can also play guard at 6-foot-6 and 309 pounds.

Painter started 13 games last season, when he was a fifth-year senior. As a freshman, he worked at defensive tackle before moving back to offense.

The Broncos have four starters along the offensive line who are coming off surgeries that will limit their offseason field work. They picked Painter on Saturday.
