Denver Broncos, Philip Blake Reach Contract Agreement

The Denver Broncos announced on Friday morning that they signed fourth-round draft pick C Philip Blake to his four-year rookie contract:

Blake is older than most rookies, as he is already 26 years old, and he is from Canada. He might not challenge J.D. Walton this season, but the incumbent center is certainly on alert.

The remaining two draft picks that still need to sign are second-round draft pick QB Brock Osweiler and third-round RB Ronnie Hillman, the only two offensive players the team selected in the draft.

Here are the other Broncos picks so far:

Cincinnati DT Derek Wolfe
Arizona St. QB Brock Osweiler
San Diego St. RB Ronnie Hillman
Arizona St. CB Omar Bolden
Tennessee DE Malik Jackson
Kentucky LB Danny Trevathan

Broncos Draft Picks 2012: Denver Grabs Baylor C Philip Blake

The Denver Broncos dipped into Texas on Saturday afternoon to grab Baylor Bears center Philip Blake in the fourth round (108th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft. Blake, 6 feet 2 and 311 pounds, hails from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and is 26 years old.

He will slot in behind fellow former Bears center J.D. Walton, the current start for the Denver Broncos. Walton has had an up-and-down time in the NFL over the first two years of his career. The Broncos did attempt to bring in former Peyton Manning teammate Jeff Saturday to play center, but he went to the Green Bay Packers.

Blake might certainly challenge Walton in a year or two.

Here are the other Broncos picks so far:

Cincinnati DT Derek Wolfe
Arizona St. QB Brock Osweiler
San Diego St. RB Ronnie Hillman
Arizona St. CB Omar Bolden
