The average age of this year's team is 26.1 years, with an average experience of 4.3 years. The first test in this draft is passed, with all 7 draftees making the club. Two College Free Agents made the team also. Long Snapper Aaron Brewer and Linebacker Steven Johnson. At least one of them has a chance to stay on the Roster for the entire year, making them the 14th and 15th CFAs since 1997 to make Denver’s active roster out of training camp.

Beginning Saturday at 10 a.m. MDT, the Broncos can establish a practice squad of up to eight players. Every player the team waived — except Bush — is eligible for the practice squad.

In addition, the team has the No. 25 waiver priority — based on last season’s record — to claim any players waived from other teams.
