DeMarcus Love (born March 7, 1988) is an American football offensive tackle with the Denver Broncos of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at the University of Arkansas. Love was selected with the 168th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings.[1]

High school career

Love attended David W. Carter High School, in Dallas, Texas, where he was a teammate of Michael Crabtree. He was a starter at offensive tackle as a sophomore before being replaced by Curtis Bailey,[2] and moved to offensive guard for his junior and senior seasons for Coach Allen Wilson. As a senior, he helped his team to an 11-1 record and a second-round state playoff berth in the state's largest classification (5A).

Regarded as a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, Love was listed as the No. 57 offensive tackle prospect in the class of 2006.[3] He chose Arkansas over Kansas, Arizona, UTEP and Kansas State.

College career

After redshirting his initial year at Arkansas, Love played in eight games and started the final three contests of the 2007 season at right guard against Mississippi State, LSU and Missouri in the Cotton Bowl. In 2008, he started eight games for the year, all at strong guard, and played in 11.

In his junior season, Love started all 13 games for the Razorbacks and was a member of an offensive line which blocked for a unit that led the SEC in scoring offense (36.0). For his senior season, he was moved to left tackle. He was named Preseason All-SEC First Team in 2010.[4]

Professional career

Minnesota Vikings

Love was selected with the 168th overall pick in the 6th round of the draft by the Minnesota Vikings.[1] He was inactive for all 16 Regular Season games in the 2011 season despite making the team out of training camp.

After the arrival of fellow offensive tackle Matt Kalil, Love made a deal to give Kalil his collegiate number 75 and instead assumed ownership over number 73.

On August 1, 2013, Love was suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.[5] Following his return from suspension, Love was released by the Vikings on October 1, 2013.[6]
