The Broncos started signing picks a bit later than most of the other teams around the league, but they’ve caught up quickly.
With the announcement that third-round tackle Michael Schofield has signed his four-year deal, the Broncos have reached agreement on contracts with five of their six picks in the last two days. First-round cornerback Bradley Roby is the only player yet to sign with the team.
Schofield started at right tackle for Michigan in 2012 and 2013 and could work his way into the mix at that position with a strong offseason. The Broncos have moved last year’s starter Orlando Franklin to guard and Chris Clark is currently manning the position after playing on the left side in place of Ryan Clady in 2013.
Whether he starts or not, Schofield’s arrival shores up the Broncos’ depth at tackle heading into the 2014 season.
