The Denver Broncos have announced that six players will be  joining their 2015 Practice squad.

The Broncos still have four spots left to fill and are expected to fill those spots in the coming days. Look for a running back, and a offensive tackle to be included in those final four spots.

Position Player Experience
Wide receiver Jordan Taylor Rookie
Center Dillon Day Rookie
Linebacker Zaire Anderson Rookie
Nose Tackle Chuka Ndulue Rookie
Outside linebacker Danny Mason Rookie
Cornerback Taurean Nixon Rookie

More on the players:

Jordan Taylor: The rookie wide receiver impressed during Training Camp and made some nice catches during the preseason. Unfortunately for Taylor the Broncos were deep at receiver and there was no room for him. Taylor will provide the Broncos some depth on the team in case someone gets hurt during the season.

Dillon Day: Day received the highest signing bonus of any of the Broncos undrafted free agents this year, so the Bro cos staff felt highly enough about him. Look for him to learn and grow on the practice squad this year and compete for a backup job in 2016.

Zaire Anderson: Anderson was praised by Head Coach Gary Kubiak multiple times this summer and played well during the preseason. Unfortunately for Anderson there wasn't enough room for him on the roster. Anderson will be called on if the Broncos suffer any injuries to the middle linebacker spots.

Chuka Ndulue: He was an undrafted free agent for the Broncos in 2015, and will provide depth for the Broncos at nose tackle. He's a versatile lineman who can play three spots along the line. The 6'3" 298lb lineman had a half sack during the preseason.

Taurean Nixon: Nixon was drafted by the Broncos in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He was teammates with 5th round pick Lorenzo Doss at Tulane. He's a speedy cornerback who will look improve his game and contribute for the Broncos in the future.

Danny Mason: Mason is a speedy outside linebacker who was among the Broncos first series of cuts earlier this week. He has a very raw skill set, but his speed and athleticism has earned him another look from the Broncos.
