Broncos To Sign 15 Undrafted Free Agents

The Broncos have agreed to terms with 15 undrafted free agents, the team announced today in a press release. That total is notable, since the club only had 13 spots available on its 90-man roster following the draft, as Mike Klis of the Denver Post tweets. As such, Denver will have to cut two players by Monday.

Here’s the full list of the team’s UDFA signings:

  • Kenny Anunike, DE, Duke
  • Shaquil Barrett, LB, Colorado State ($10K bonus, per Aaron Wilson)
  • Kapri Bibbs, RB, Colorado State
  • Isaiah Burse, WR, Fresno State
  • Steven Clark, P, Auburn
  • Brennan Clay, RB, Oklahoma
  • Mister Cobble, DT, Kentucky
  • Bennie Fowler, WR, Michigan State
  • Greg Hardin, WR, North Dakota
  • Greg Latta, DE, Purdue
  • Bryn Renner, QB, North Carolina
  • Aslam Sterling, OL, Kansas
  • Jordan Sullen, CB, Tulane
  • Juwan Thompson, RB, Duke
  • Louis Young, CB, Georgia Tech

North Notes: Lions, Ravens, Steelers

Jadeveon Clowney won’t be working out for any more NFL teams prior to the draft, as we heard this morning from Peter King, but that doesn’t mean he’s done making visits. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via Twitter), the Lions will be hosting Clowney for a visit soon. There’s obviously no chance the standout defensive end falls to Detroit at No. 10, so bringing in Clowney could be a further signal that the Lions are exploring moving up in the draft. The club has also been linked multiple times to wideout Sammy Watkins, who will almost certainly be off the board by No. 10 as well.

Here’s more on the Lions and a few other teams in the NFL’s two North divisions:

  • Rapoport’s previously linked tweet also includes word that the Lions are meeting today with UNC tight end Eric Ebron.
  • Notre Dame tight end Troy Niklas, who visited the Bills earlier in the month, recently met with the Ravens, writes Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Wilson also tweets a couple more players who were in attendance at the Ravens’ local prospect day: Dexter McDougle (CB, Maryland) and Louis Young (CB, Georgia Tech).
  • TCU cornerback Jason Verrett, Arizona corner Shaquille Richardson and Oregon State defensive end Scott Crichton are visiting the Steelers today, tweets ESPN.com’s Scott Brown.
  • Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune takes a look at how the Vikings are spending their money by position, noting that the club is only among the top 10 NFL teams in spending at running back (first) and defensive end (ninth).
  • The Lions hosted Boston College linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis on a pre-draft visit last week, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press (via Twitter). We heard on Friday that Pierre-Louis also visited the Steelers.
