Less than a week before rookies, quarterbacks and injured veterans participate in their first training camp workout, the Broncos assured another of their draft picks will be there, signing sixth-round pick Eric Olsen on Saturday.
The former Notre Dame lineman started the final 31 games of his Irish career, playing at three different interior line positions. Olsen earned third-team All-America honors from The Sporting News during his senior season when he started all 12 games at center.
The Broncos selected Olsen, 6-foot-3, 305 pounds, with pick No. 183 in April’s NFL Draft, making him the third lineman selected by the team after Zane Beadles and J.D. Walton.
Olsen joins Walton, Perrish Cox, Syd’Quan Thompson and Jammie Kirlew as Broncos’ draft picks who have signed. The team currently has four picks still unsigned.
