ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos have signed 11 college free agents, it was announced on Friday, May 14.
The following 11 players signed with the club as college free agents:
- Nolan Laufenberg, OG, Air Force
- Warren Jackson, WR, CSU
- Adam Prentice, FB, South Carolina/CSU
- Andre Mintze, OLB, Vanderbilt
- Devontres Dukes, WR, South Florida
- David Curry, ILB, Georgia Tech
- Curtis Robinson, ILB, Stanford
- Drew Himmelman, OT, Illinois State
- Mac McCain III, CB, North Carolina A&T
- Shaun Beyer, TE, Iowa
- Branden Mack, WR, Temple
The Broncos used their two, fifth-round draft picks to take two safeties: Caden Sterns of Texas with selection No. 152 and Indiana's Jamar Johnson at No. 164.
The Broncos needed depth at the safety position as seldom-used P.J. Locke, another Texas product, and Trey Marshall are the only backups to veterans Justin Simmons and Kareem Jackson.
Sterns is a 6-foot-1, 207 safety from Cibolo, Texas who was a three-year starter for the Longhorns. He thought he would be picked earlier.
"The last 24 hours have probably been some of the most stressful moments of my life—just waiting and trying to get that call,'' said Sterns. "It was definitely frustrating. To finally get it, a huge relief came over. Also, to get it from Denver, Colorado, that has always been somewhere that I’ve wanted to go. It will be my first time, so I'm really excited to get there, meet the people and be around the city and the team as well."
