Bio

Danny Trevathan is a third year outside linebacker for the Denver Broncos. He previously starred for the University of Kentucky and twice led the Southeastern Conference in tackles.

Early Years & College

Trevathan was born in Youngstown, OH on March 24, 1990 and played football at Leesburg High School in Leesburg, FL. After graduation, he enrolled at Kentucky and saw limited action during his first two years on campus. As a junior in 2010, he led the SEC with 144 total tackles, earning First-Team All-Conference honors and also receiving All-American recognition from various news outlets. He tested draft waters, but opted to return to school for his senior season instead.

He once again led the conference in tackles as a senior in 2011, but he was not considered as a finalist for the Butkus Award, which is given to the nation’s top linebacker each season. He was named to Second-Team All-SEC in his final season with the Wildcats.

Denver Broncos

After completing his college career at Kentucky, the Denver Broncos drafted Trevathan in the sixth round with the 188th overall pick. Denver received this selection after trading popular quarterback Tim Tebow to the New York Jets. As a rookie, he made 33 tackles mainly playing special teams and seeing action as a reserve linebacker.

Entering the 2013 season, teammate Von Miller was suspended six games for breaking the league’s substance abuse policy, and Trevathan took advantage of the opportunity by winning a starting job. He started all 16 regular season games for the Broncos, collecting 129 tackles, 2.0 sacks, and three interceptions for the eventual AFC champions.
