If it’s a business day, the Broncos are going to sign a draft pick.
That’s the way it seems, anyway. The Broncos announced Tuesday that they have agreed to terms on a four-year deal with linebacker Danny Trevathan. The sixth-rounder is the fourth pick to sign with the team and the signings have come on the last four weekdays.
Trevathan made a ton of tackles at Kentucky, but his size could keep him from filling a similar role in Denver. He’s just 6’0″ and 237 pounds, a bit small for an every down role although his motor and competitiveness will mean that he puts up a good fight for one. Special teams figures to be his ticket to the final roster and his ticket to getting a shot at anything more than that as his career unfolds.
Trevathan gives the Broncos four draft picks under contract. There are three draftees still unsigned as the team continues their Organized Team Activities.
