Omar Bolden, a fourth-round (101st overall pick) selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, has signed his rookie contract with the Denver Broncos. He is the first draft pick to sign with the Broncos so far.
Bolden missed the entire 2011 campaign due to an ACL injury, but he was an All-American in 2010. While he will receive playing time as a cornerback, we could expect him to act as a kick returner and in other roles on special teams.
With the current collective bargaining agreement, rookie contract are pretty much set in stone. The rest of the draft picks should be quick in signing.
Here is a complete list of 2012 Broncos draft picks:
- Round 2: DT Derek Wolfe
- Round 2: QB Brock Osweiler
- Round 3: RB Ronnie Hillman
- Round 4: CB Omar Bolden
- Round 4: G Philip Blake
