PFF: Broncos signed two top rookie free agents on offense

BY foxsports • May 5, 2015

Convincing top undrafted rookies to come to the Mile High City hasn't been tough for John Elway.

He bagged two more guys who could crack the team's offensive depth chart last weekend, according to Pro Football Focus.

The first, Clemson offensive lineman Kalon Davis, is a 6-foot-5, 340-pound behemoth that Denver could use to beef its line up. Here's his scouting report:

Played all over the line at Clemson and was impressive at tackle against a lower level of competition. Doesn’t have the speed that will translate well at the spot in the pros and is far more of a natural guard type prospect. Still had sixth-highest run blocking score of all tackles against Power-5 opposition and his versatility will keep him around. Denver and it’s zone blocking system might not be best fit.

The second is Matt Miller, a wide receiver with some size from Boise State. His scouting report: 

Season was cut short by ankle surgery after he made an extremely productive start to the season for Boise State. His 2.73 yards per route run would have seen him finish 12th in the nation of draft-eligible wide receivers if he had played enough to qualify. Still, he was even more productive in the slot with his 3.19 YPRR best in the nation and that’s where he could fit in as the kind of bigger body there.

Both guys fit roles the Broncos haven't currently filled. Davis can be a sixth offensive lineman brought in on goal line and short-yardage situations. Miller can slide in behind Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, and Cody Latimer as receiver depth.
