The Broncos signed the second of their nine 2010 NFL Draft selections Tuesday, seventh-round pick Jammie Kirlew. Fellow seventh-rounder Syd’Quan Thompson signed last Friday.
The team’s final pick in the draft (232nd overall), Kirlew was hopeful the Broncos would select him ever since he met with defensive coordinator Don Martindale and assistant linebackers coach Roman Phifer at the NFL Scouting Combine.
“I was getting a couple of calls through the draft from them,” the linebacker said. “They were telling me that no matter what they were trying to get me up there. They found a way to get me up there and I’m excited.”
Kirlew was also a two-time all-conference player. The two-time Indiana Hooisers MVP closed out his career tied for third on the school’s career sacks list with 23 and second on the career tackles for loss list with 52.5.
