Broncos sign their first draft pick

The Dolphins announced that they signed their first draft pick on Thursday and the Broncos followed suit a short time later.

Denver and cornerback Omar Bolden, a fourth-round pick, have agreed to terms on a four-year contract. Bolden was the 101st overall pick of the draft after completing his college career at Arizona State.

Bolden’s talent had some people talking about a much loftier position in the draft, but concerns about his knee pushed him to the final day. Bolden missed the entire 2011 season and most of the 2009 season because of knee injuries. That has led two surgeries on the knee and red flags from draft evaluators, although he’s declared himself 100 percent at this point.

Bolden was good when he was healthy, though, and he also has experience returning kicks. Assuming the knee is sound, he should battle for a role in sub packages in a secondary that can’t have enough cornerbacks.

Denver has six draft picks left to sign, including quarterback Brock Osweiler and defensive tackle Derek Wolfe.
