Five more Broncos

May 3, 2007

The Broncos added five more rookies as they announced the signing of several undrafted free agents today…

Defensive Tackle

Miami/Coral Gables

With this signing the Broncos who were called Browncos when we picked up several linemen from Cleveland will likely be called ‘Brontors’ (or some other silly combination). However, no one should be laughing at the addition of three D-linemen from a championship college team. Harris saw action starting in 2003 and significant starting time in 2005 when he started all 12 games.

This year’s draft reminds me of 2003, and I can only hope our new linemen do as well as our CB’s from that draft.

 

Line Break

Tim DuckworthCollege Info Page NFL Scouting Report
Auburn University
Offensive Guard
6′ 4″ 318 lbs.
Taylorsville, MS

Duckworth looks to be a solid depth addition to the O-line. He has experience on both sides of the ball and at both guard and tackle on the offensive line. He has had a touch of trouble with his left knee.

 

Line Break

Marquay McDanielCollege Info Page NFL Scouting Report
Hampton University
Wide Receiver
6′ 0″ 197 lbs.
Virginia Beach, VA

Looks like a quality WR from a small school — with a respectable number of starts (31). He has quickness and will likely compete for a return duty. His major knock is that he isn’t very physical on the blocking side of things.

 

Line Break

Selvin YoungNFL Scouting Report
University of Texas
Running Back
5′ 11″ 217 lbs.

You know we couldn’t start a new season without at least one rookie running back, right?

Young played in 49 career games (starting 16). He tallied 3,060 all-purpose yards during his career and returned two punts and a kickoff for TDs, while earning honorable mention All-Big 12 as an all-purpose back in 2006.

He also is the only UT player in school history to return both a punt and a kickoff in the same game (New Mexico State, 2003).

My take: Never count the rookie out.

 

Line Break

Roderick Rogers
Wisconsin
Safety
6′ 2″ 187lbs.
Stone Mountain, GA

Rogers was named second-team All Big 10 the past two years at Wisconsin. He started 26 of 42 career games and totaled 99 tackles, five interceptions, 21 pass breakups and one fumble recovery.

I’ll have to do some digging to find some further info on Rogers, but this was another position that needed some youth, so we should be pretty close to what our roster will look like for camp… although with the Broncos, you never know!
