One Down...Broncos ink first '09 Draft pick, C Blake Schlueter

The Denver Broncos on Friday signed center Blake Schlueter, whom they selected in the seventh round (225th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft from Texas Christian University. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Schlueter (6-foot-2, 279 pounds) played 50 career games (38 starts) at TCU and earned All-Mountain West Conference recognition during each of his three seasons as a starter. He helped TCU to a 30-9 (.769) overall record, three bowl wins and two top-25 final rankings (Associated Press) during his final three years at the school.

As a senior in 2008, Schlueter was a first-team all-conference choice after starting all 13 games and blocking for an offense that ranked 12th in the nation in rushing (220.2 ypg.). He was part of a TCU team that finished the year with an 11-2 record and a No. 7 national ranking from the Associated Press that marked the school's highest final ranking since 1959.

Schlueter earned second-team All-MWC accolades as a 12-game starter during his junior campaign and was an honorable mention all-conference pick as a sophomore who started all 13 games.

A first-team all-state selection at center and defensive end as a senior at Ganado High School in Ganado, Texas, Schlueter was born on April 22, 1986.
