The Broncos nine drafted players will be hitting the field tomorrow along with their eight undrafted free agents who they signed at the conclusion of last week's NFL Draft. Also joining them will be 10 players who are trying out for the roster. The Broncos roster currently stands at 89 players so they have room for one more player.

Four players who spent the majority of the 2014 season on the team's practice squad will also be joining them. Those players are center Matt Paradis, receiver Bennie Fowler, guard Jon Halapio, and linebacker Shaq Barrett.

  • Guard Kalon Davis did not sign with the Broncos. That's why he is not listed in this group.
  • The Broncos currently have 89 players on the roster. That one spot will go to one of the try-outs if they catch the Broncos eye.
  • Matthew Paradis will get some extra work at center. He's fighting for a roster spot with Gino Gradkowski and Max Garcia.
  • Linebacker Shaq Barrett will also get some extra work in this weekend. He's fighting to find himself a role on defense and/or special teams.
  • Tight end Joe Don Duncan, cornerback Tevrin Brandon, and kicker/punter Karl Schmitz signed as free agents this offseason and will be taking part in the rookie mini-camp.
