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):
|1||Von Miller||OLB||Texas A&M|
|46||Orlando Franklin||T||Miami (FL)|
|67||Nate Irving||ILB||N.C. State|
|129||Julius Thomas||TE||Portland State|
