The Denver Broncos added 10 players to the roster in the 2020 NFL draft but the selection process doesn’t stop there.
The Broncos have one of the best histories of any team in the league in terms of signing undrafted free agents. It seems that almost every year, at least one of these guys makes the 53-man roster. It’s proof that teams must do their research on prospects from any level of football playing at any school in the country.
In years past, the Broncos have landed players such as Chris Harris and Rod Smith as undrafted rookies and of course, Phillip Lindsay is well on his way to joining that successful list of undrafted gems as he became the first undrafted free agent to ever be selected to the Pro Bowl in 2018 and the following year, became the first undrafted free agent to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons in the league.
Last season, the Broncos had Malik Reed make the opening day roster after a huge preseason. Who could be that guy this year?
Here, we will be tracking who the Broncos have brought in as an undrafted free agent, so be sure to check back frequently as we will update the list when news of a signing comes in.
