Broncos sign sixth-round pick Matt Paradis

The Broncos have wrapped up yet another deal with one of their six draft picks.

Center Matt Paradis, a sixth-round selection from Boise State, has reached a deal with Denver, the club said Monday.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Paradis was a two-season starter for Boise State (2012-2013). At the NFL Scouting Combine, he posted a time of 4.46 seconds in the 20-yard short shuttle, best among centers.

Paradis will compete to stick as a backup in his first NFL season. The Broncos have good veteran depth at center, with Manuel Ramirez and Will Montgomery both having starting experience in the middle.

Paradis is one of three selections to sign with Denver on Monday. Wide receiver Cody Latimer (second round) and outside linebacker Corey Nelson (seventh round) have also signed their deals.

The Broncos’ lone remaining unsigned picks are cornerback Bradley Roby (first round), offensive tackle Michael Schofield (third round) and linebacker Lamin Barrow (fifth round).

    Welcome aboard Matt.

    If you can snap the ball to the PFM instead of over his head into the end zone, you’re the starter.

    Paradis played eight man football in high school, walked on at BSU as a DT, and finally earned a scholarship when he switched to center. Not a great athlete, but he’s tough. He might stick.

    Oakland has a top 10 center. I guess it’s easier to troll than it is to be civil.
