2011 NFL Draft Class On Board

Posted Jul 29, 2011

With third-round pick Nate Irving agreeing to terms with the team Friday, all nine of the club's 2011 NFL Draft picks are under contract.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos have now locked up all nine of their selections in the 2011 NFL Draft.

On Friday, third-round pick Nate Irving -- an All-ACC linebacker from N.C. State -- agreed to terms with the team, rounding out the class.

Irving was a leader on the Wolfpack defense last season as a senior, one year removed from a single-car accident that left him with a collapsed lung, broken rib, separated shoulder and compound fracture in his leg.

After working his way back to the field, he finished his career with 92 tackles, 21.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks en route to third-team Associated Press All-America honors and first-team All-ACC honors. He was a semifinalist for the 2010 Butkus Award, presented to the nation's top linebacker, which was eventually won by fellow Broncos rookie Von Miller.

"He is a guy that has great, great instincts inside and really knows how to get to the football,” Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway said after the draft.

For his N.C. State career, Irving totaled 211 tackles, nine sacks, six forced fumbles, four interceptions and a defensive touchdown.
