Nate Irving, Denver Broncos Agree On Contract

After a bit of a delay, third-round selection LB Nate Irving has agreed to terms with the Denver Broncos. John Elway announced the signing on Twitter. All nine of the Broncos' 2011 NFL Draft picks are now in camp and ready to practice.

Irving's contract was delayed a bit as they worked out the details of a third-round deal, a sort of no-man's land in terms of draft contracts now. Even with the rookie salary pool in place, the amount of guaranteed money was likely in issue.

These mostly quick signings of rookies will be a staple well into the future as there will be no prolonged holdouts. Teams may need to haggle over how much guaranteed money they will give out to the top picks, but don't look for players to holdout into the season any longer.

Here is a complete list of the Broncos' draft selections (signed players in italics):

Pick Player  Pos  School
1 Von Miller OLB  Texas A&M
45 Rahim Moore S  UCLA
46 Orlando Franklin T  Miami (FL)
67 Nate Irving ILB  N.C. State
108 Quinton Carter S  Oklahoma
129 Julius Thomas TE  Portland State
189 Mike Mohamed ILB  California
204 Virgil Green TE  Nevada
257 Jeremy Beal DE/LB  Oklahoma

Denver Broncos Sign Von Miller, Rahim Moore

The Denver Broncos have reached contract agreements with all of their selections from the 2011 NFL Draft. No. 2 overall pick Von Miller received a four-year contract worth $21 million. The entire contract is guaranteed.

Safety Rahim Moore's signing was announced just moments after John Elway made the Miller signing on Twitter. The contract numbers for the other players are:

Orlando Franklin, $4.361 million total ($1.668 million bonus)
Quinton Carter, $455,000 bonus

With all of the rookies in the fold (except Nate Irving), the Broncos can now get down to the business of seeing what kind of game these players have against NFL players. Can Von Miller become a feared sack artist? Will Rahim Moore be the ballhawk we hope he can be? With either of the tight ends emerge as a serious receiving threat?

It all begins now.

Here is a complete list of the Broncos' draft selections (signed players in italics):

Pick Player  Pos  School
1 Von Miller OLB  Texas A&M
45 Rahim Moore S  UCLA
46 Orlando Franklin T  Miami (FL)
67 Nate Irving ILB  N.C. State
108 Quinton Carter S  Oklahoma
129 Julius Thomas TE  Portland State
189 Mike Mohamed ILB  California
204 Virgil Green TE  Nevada
257 Jeremy Beal DE/LB  Oklahoma

Jeremy Beal Signs With Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos have signed four of their nine 2011 NFL Draft selections. The latest is seventh round DE/LB Jeremy Beal out of Oklahoma. John Elway announced the signing on Twitter.

Here are the salaries for the four draft picks, according to Lindsay Jones:

Julius Thomas, $2.592 million
Mike Mohamed, $2.2 million
Virgil Green, $2.16 million
Jeremy Beal, $2.125 million

All of the remaining players left to sign are fourth-round selections and higher. Von Miller will receive the lion's share of the money and the second most guaranteed money of any rookie in the NFL due to being the No. 2 draft pick. Hopefully all will be signed before Thursday's first practice.

Here is a complete list of the Broncos' draft selections (signed players in italics):

Pick Player  Pos  School
1 Von Miller OLB  Texas A&M
45 Rahim Moore S  UCLA
46 Orlando Franklin T  Miami (FL)
67 Nate Irving ILB  N.C. State
108 Quinton Carter S  Oklahoma
129 Julius Thomas TE  Portland State
189 Mike Mohamed ILB  California
204 Virgil Green TE  Nevada
257 Jeremy Beal DE/LB  Oklahoma

Denver Broncos Sign TE Julius Thomas, LB Mike Mohamed

The Denver Broncos continue to sign their 2011 NFL Draft selections. After news broke that seventh-round pick TE Virgil Green signed, executive vice president of football operations John Elway announced on Twitter that the team signed two more players: fourth round TE Julius Thomas and sixth round LB Mike Mohamed.

Thomas has a stronger background in basketball, leading many comparisons to the NFL's top tight end, Antonio Gates. Thomas will help a thin position, as will Green. Mohamed's position in the linebacking corps is still up in the air, but a move to the middle of the field could be in order for him.

Elway mentioned that the team is still working on finalizing the contracts of the remaining picks, including Von Miller.

Here is a complete list of the Broncos' draft selections (signed players in italics):

Pick Player  Pos  School
1 Von Miller OLB  Texas A&M
45 Rahim Moore S  UCLA
46 Orlando Franklin T  Miami (FL)
67 Nate Irving ILB  N.C. State
108 Quinton Carter S  Oklahoma
129 Julius Thomas TE  Portland State
189 Mike Mohamed ILB  California
204 Virgil Green TE  Nevada
257 Jeremy Beal OLB  Oklahoma

Denver Broncos Sign Rookie TE Virgil Green

The Denver Broncos drafted nine players in the 2011 NFL Draft and they signed their first one on Wednesday evening. Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that seventh-round selection tight end Virgil Green has signed his rookie contract.

The deal should be for four years and $2.16 million. His base salary for this season will be $375,000 and a $17,282 bonus comes with it. He is the first Broncos to sign under the new rookie money pool allocation, most of which will wind up going to No. 2 overall pick Von Miller.

Green was one of two tight ends the Broncos drafted. They also selected Julius Thomas, a fourth-round selection. Both will be counted on to help a position that saw the release of Daniel Graham and has just Richard Quinn and Dan Gronkowski there.

Here is a complete list of the Broncos' draft selections (signed players in italics):

Pick Player  Pos  School
1 Von Miller OLB  Texas A&M
45 Rahim Moore S  UCLA
46 Orlando Franklin T  Miami (FL)
67 Nate Irving ILB  N.C. State
108 Quinton Carter S  Oklahoma
129 Julius Thomas TE  Portland State
189 Mike Mohamed ILB  California
204 Virgil Green TE  Nevada
257 Jeremy Beal OLB  Oklahoma
