The Broncos have now signed five of their eight picks, including safety Justin Simmons (third-round pick) and running back Devontae Booker (fourth-round pick) on Friday, but beyond their first-year class they remain largely in a holding pattern on contracts until they can, or can't, hammer out a deal for linebacker Von Miller.
