CFA signed by the Broncos


Kenny Anunike, DE, 6’4’’, 260 lbs. Duke.

Often injured prospect with great size for 4-3 DE and good production number at Duke. Will compete for a practice squad spot and could be really useful in the future give his pass rush skills.

 

Shaquil Barrett, OLB, 6’1’’, 251 lbs. Colorado State.

My general overview: More suited for 3-4 defense. Has quickness and speed to become a solid pass rusher in the NFL. Little bit undersized a la Dumervil with less agility and explosiveness. Has big frame and could add some bulk to become more powerful in case selected by a 4-3 team as DE.

My Broncos perspective overview: I think he’ll be more suited by 3-4 defense teams that could select him in the 6th round since his nice development at Colorado State and his very good performance against Alabama in 2013. Still a talent that has grown in Colorado and surely the Broncos has watch carefully if they can add this prospect to the roster and which position he’d play. I guess that the only position would be DE.

 

I think he could get a shot at practice squad as SOLB jocker role, he could play some Strong outside linebacker and has pass rush skills. It will be the Von Miller backup spot.

 

Kapri Bibbs, RB, 5’11’’, 203 lbs. Colorado State.

My general overview: Real one cut downhill runner. Has great vision and hit the hole hard. Has great acceleration and is able to add another gear on open field. Plays bigger than his size and has game speed. No indication of pass catching or blocking on his video.

My Broncos perspective overview: The trouble with him, from a Broncos point of view is the evidence of blocking capability and pass catching skills. Still the Broncos already had a private meeting with him and he has the trait of the change of pace runner Denver is in need of. The Broncos could reach up to the 4th round if they really like him because he could add a dimension to the offense that could make Manning looks even better, if that is remotely possible.

 

I really like this signing. I understand he will have hard time because of pass blocking, but I guess he could add another dimension to the running game, more than Hillman and Anderson.

 

 

Isaiah Burse, WR/KR/PR, 5’10’’, 188 lbs. Fresno State.

Developmental slot WR candidate and special team returner. He could even make the 53 men roster as returner. I think it’s a great sign with potential for the future when Welker will leave the team.

Plus the Broncos are really thin at special team returner and I guess that they’d like to add somebody earlier during the draft. Probably they feel good with what there was on the team or they liked a lot this kids in CFA.

 

Steven Clark, P, 6’5’’, 231 lbs., Auburn.

I think he’ll seriously compete for the P spot on the 53 men roster. Colquitt is doing a fine job only while he’s being paid huge money for being a P.

Colquitt will have to start performing as elite or this kid will take his place on the team.

Brennan Clay, RB, 5’11’’, 202 lbs., Oklahoma.

I though the Broncos were thin at RB and three of them have been signed as CFA. The Broncos are rumored to dislike this year class. I disagree but looking what happened in the 7 rounds probably the rumor is right.

Clay is not the fastest back but has some elusiveness and power. I couldn’t see if he has any pass blocking experience but if he does, he has a shot to be the 4th RB on the 53 men roster.

 

Mister Cobble, DT/OG, 6’0’’, 333 lbs., Kentucky.

He’s a little shorter than what the Broncos like on their Dline, and definitely will not play G in Denver (way to short from the standard likings at that position). Interesting because he could end up in practice squad since the position is not crowded at all and no one else on the roster could qualify for the PS. He’ll probably have a big learning curve and will be asked to be ready in 1 year to play against the run.

 

Bennie Fowler, WR, 6’1’’, 217 lbs., Michigan State.

My general overview: Possession WR that can work all around the field. Has thick body and looks powerful. He’s a bit inconsistent and can alternate some great concentration catches with some easy drops.

My Broncos perspective overview: He could be brought to camp to compete.

 

Concrete signing to raise the competition level in training camp.

 

Greg Hardin, WR/KR/PR, 5’10’’, 171 lbs., North Dakota.

Interesting FCS prospect that could really surprise especially in the return game.

I didn’t watch any video on him.

 

Greg Latta, DE, 6’5’’, 261 lbs., Purdue.

Great size and most probably a developmental prospect in the 3-technique.

I cannot find any video on him.

 

Bryn Renner, QB, 6’3’’, 228 lbs., North Carolina.

He’ll bring competition in training camp to Dysert for the third QB on the team (53 men roster or practice squad).

 

Aslam Sterling, OL, 6’4’’, 332 lbs., Kansas University.

This year Kansas prospect that could succeed in Broncos uniform. His size suggests me that he’ll be converted to G. Could end up in the practice squad and have one or two year of learning.

 

Jordan Sullen, S/CB/WR, 5’11’’, 200 lbs., Tulane University.

Some versatility and competition in the DBs position in training camp. He probably will be tried as nickel DB.

 

Juwan Thompson, RB, 5’11’’, 226 lbs., Duke University.

The Broncos might be looking for a power running back because he’s another not so fast RB that is powerful and could run inside. He could also contribute on special teams

Louis Young, CB/FS/ST, 5’11’’, 209 lbs., Georgia Tech.

 

Interesting player that could be easily be drafted. He had a really great season in 2011 as sophomore but after that had some problem. He could be the undrafted prospect to watch in training camp.
