The Broncos went to the pool of their hometown state for two of the 15 undrafted free agents they are expected to sign by Monday.
(Update: View our list of Denver's 15 UDFA signings here.)
Colorado State University running back Kapri Bibbs and linebacker Shaquil Barrett both agreed to terms with the Broncos Saturday, according to the players' and the CSU Rams' twitter accounts.

Preciate all the love and support. I'm heading to the Broncos.— Shaquil Barrett (@MOOCHIE056) May 11, 2014
Kapri Bibbs (5'11", 203) broke the CSU single-season records for rushing yards (1,741), rushing touchdowns (31), total touchdowns (31) and points (186) in one season at CSU, where he didn't even start in every game. He tied for No. 1 in the nation in rushing and total touchdowns (31) and ranked No. 6 in rushing yards (1,741).
Shaquil Barrett (6'2", 250) was the 2013 Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year for his 20.5-TFL effort in his senior year, which ranked him 5th in the nation for that statistic. In 2013 Barrett finished third on the team with 80 tackles (38 solo) and added three blocked kicks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and one interception.
A UDFA signing is basically a tryout for training camp, and both of these guys will have to show something to make the roster. I like Barrett's chances a bit more than Bibbs' (especially considering his potential special teams contributions). Which of these Rams do you think will make the roster?
