The first of the Broncos’ 2012 NFL Draft picks has signed with the team.
Cornerback Omar Bolden, drafted in the fourth round, put pen to paper on Thursday.
Selected at pick No. 101 overall, Bolden amassed 138 total tackles, five tackles for loss, 21 pass breakups and seven interceptions in his career at Arizona State.
In addition, he accumulated 523 return yards, including two touchdowns — one of which was a 97-yarder in 2010.
Bolden did not play last season due to an ACL injury, but was still named a team captain, and earned a Hard Hat award for his work in the team’s offseason strength and conditioning program.
In 2010, Bolden was one of only four unanimous selections to the All-Pac-10 First-Team, chosen by the conference’s coaches.
The four-year starter for the Sun Devils appeared in 41 games in his career.
“This is all exciting for me,” Bolden said during the club’s rookie minicamp. “I really love this game. Just to have the opportunity to be out here and play in the NFL and for the Broncos, it’s an amazing opportunity.”
