Broncos signed Mississippi State C Dillon Day.

Day (6'4/296) started 46 games as the Bulldogs' center, but was never recognized as an All-SEC player by the conference's coaches. He was a scrappy technician in college, winning with toughness as opposed to athleticism or strength. Day isn't an NFL starting-caliber center and doesn't move or drive block well enough to excel at guard. He's likely to have a brief pro career where he's constantly fighting for roster spots.

Broncos signed Rice WR Jordan Taylor.

Taylor (6'4/209) was a three-year starter for the Owls, piling up 175 career receptions for 2,585 yards (14.8 YPR) and 20 TDs. He made second-team All-Conference USA as both a junior and senior. Taylor showed well at the Rice Pro Day, running 4.52 with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. Although Taylor needs to get stronger, he's something of a sleeper with outside and slot experience, plus size, and sneaky vertical ability.

Broncos signed Boise State WR Matt Miller.

Miller (6'3/220) set the Broncos' all-time record for career receptions (244), gaining 3,049 yards (12.5 YPR) with 29 TDs. His senior year was cut short by torn ankle ligaments that required surgery. Healthy at the Boise Pro Day, Miller managed forty times of 4.79/4.80 with a 9-foot-6 broad jump and 34-inch vertical. Simply not an NFL athlete, Miller is likely staring at a brief pro career.

Broncos selected Oklahoma State LB/DB Josh Furman with the No. 252 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Furman is a transfer from Michigan who played his final season at Oklahoma State. He played linebacker while around 210 pounds to combat spread offenses. Per NFL Network's Charles Davis, Furman once beat Denard Robinson in a forty-yard dash. He could move to safety or bulk up and stay at linebacker.

Broncos selected Tulane CB Taurean Nixon with the No. 251 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Nixon (5'11/187) was a two-year letterman at Memphis before spending two years at Tulane. He blazed a 4.36 at his Pro Day and sports a 38 1/2" vertical jump with an 11-2 broad. The Broncos have an athlete to mold.
May 2 - 6:27 PM

Broncos selected Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian with the No. 250 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Siemian (6'3/220) was a late riser, surprisingly garnering plenty of interest in the weeks before draft weekend. He tore his ACL in November and wasn't able to work out in the pre-draft process. During his time at Northwestern, Siemian passed for 5,931 career yards, 27 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. He;ll compete for the No. 3 job with the Broncos behind backup Brock Osweiler.
May 2 - 6:26 PM

Broncos selected Maryland DT Darius Kilgo with the No. 203 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Kilgo (6'4/320) made 36 starts for the Terps, collecting 19.5 career tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, and six fumble recoveries. He pumped 33 reps on the bench at Maryland's Pro Day, also running forty times of 5.13 and 5.20. Kilgo projects as a one or "zero" technique nose with some ability to push the pocket and hold the point of attack.
May 2 - 4:36 PM

Broncos selected Tulsa CB Lorenzo Doss with the No. 164 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Doss (5'10/182) was a field-flipping ballhawk in Conference USA, securing 15 interceptions in just three college seasons. His 271 return yards set a Tulane record. Due to size and athletic limitations, Doss is best suited to play slot corner in the NFL. Doss ran 4.50 at the Combine with a 33 1/2-inch vertical, and has short arms (29 3/4"). He will need to clean up his tackling to become a consistent defensive force.
May 2 - 3:02 PM

Broncos selected Florida C Max Garcia with the No. 133 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Garcia (6'4/309) was Maryland's starting left tackle as a sophomore before transferring to Florida for his junior and senior years. He converted to center in 2014, earning second-team All-SEC recognition from the conference's coaches. Garcia has good arm length (33 1/4") for an interior lineman, as well as big hands (10 1/4"). He is a phone-booth mauler with the ability to play both guard and center. Garcia would be an ideal "swing" interior reserve, but could also probably become a functional starter.

Brock Osweiler is still considered the heir apparent to Peyton Manning.

The Broncos took Osweiler in the second round of the 2012 draft. Since then, the only pick they've used at quarterback was Zac Dysert in the seventh round of 2013. With Manning possibly done after this season, the 6-foot-7 Osweiler is expected to be signed to an extension at some point.

Broncos GM John Elway said second-round pick Ty Sambrailo "can compete at right tackle right away."

Sambrailo played left tackle in college, but some have suggested he might be a better fit at guard because of his short reach. Elway doesn't share that view and sees Sambrailo as a Week 1 contributor at tackle. Right tackle was a revolving door for Denver last year with Louis Vasquez, Paul Cornick and Chris Clark all seeing snaps there.

Broncos selected Ohio State TE Jeff Heuerman with the No. 92 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Heuerman (6'5/254) was a three-year starter for the Buckeyes, parlaying 52 career catches into 792 yards (15.2 YPR) and seven TDs. He ran 4.80/4.83 at the OSU Pro Day, adding a 34 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. An athletic, reliable receiver and arguably the best blocking tight end in the 2015 class, Heuerman boasts long arms (33 1/4") and big hands (10 1/8"). He could develop into a Heath Miller type if he stays healthy; a concern after Heuerman battled a foot injury throughout 2014.
May 1 - 11:03 PM

Broncos selected Colorado State OT Ty Sambrailo with the No. 59 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Sambrailo (6'6/311) made 42 starts for the Rams, protecting Garrett Grayson's blind side as the successor to Packers LT David Bakhtiari. Sambrailo made first-team All-Mountain West as a senior, allowing just one sack. He managed a 5.36 forty at the Combine and 23 reps on the bench, but shined in the three-cone drill (7.54). A disciplined, efficient mover and physical blocker, Sambrailo has been compared to Lions LT Riley Reiff by SI's Doug Farrar. Sambrailo's 33-inch arms could necessitate a move to guard, though the same was said of Bakhtiari and Reiff. Sambrailo's most likely home as a rookie will be left guard.
May 1 - 9:11 PM

Broncos No. 23 pick Shane Ray said at his introductory press conference he won't need toe surgery and "by the season I'll be ready to go attack quarterbacks."

Ray said as much last week, though it's encouraging to know he won't be missing any time. The 6'3" edge rusher will be a role player in year one, but figures to see more action in 2016. He could eventually take over DeMarcus Ware's post at left outside linebacker.
