ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The signings of draft picks continued Friday morning when safety Justin Simmons and running back Devontae Booker signed their rookie contracts.

The Broncos' third- and fourth-round selections join punter Riley Dixon, fullback Andy Janovich and safety Will Parks in putting pen to paper on their deals.

Booker took part in last Saturday's rookie minicamp practices after missing the previous day's work so he could participate in graduation ceremonies.

His on-field work was limited as he continues recovering from a torn meniscus, but he did take handoffs and cut back on both knees.

Booker is expected to fully participate in practices by June.

Simmons was a full participant in last week's minicamp, and is poised to push for a backup slot behind starters T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart. The Boston College product could also have an extensive role on special teams right away.

Rookie signings:

May 11: P Riley Dixon
May 12: FB Andy Janovich, S Will Parks
