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
