The Broncos filled the eighth and final spot on their practice squad Monday, adding rookie offensive lineman Quentin Saulsberry.
Saulsberry earned All-SEC Honorable Mention honors in 2011 as he became the only player in Mississippi State history to play and start in every one of his games as a Bulldog.
At the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine, Saulsberry said his biggest strengths are his leadership, relentless effort and ability to get “mean.”
“Being on the line of scrimmage — defensive line, offensive line — you have to have that mean streak in you, because it’s a war in the trenches,” he said. “You’ve always got to think about, the phrase we always hear is third-and-1, fourth-and-1. Who’s going to step up and make the play? Who’s going to be that person who makes their block? Who’s going to be that guy who gives up that play?”
Saulsberry is the only player on the practice squad that didn’t participate in Broncos training camp — he was signed by the Minnesota Vikings as a college free agent and was waived on Friday as the team got down to its 53-man roster.
Saulsberry joins tight end Cornelius Ingram, defensive lineman Ben Garland, wide receiver Greg Orton, guard Wayne Tribue, defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, running back Jeremiah Johnson and safety Duke Ihenacho on the practice squad.
