ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos reached an agreement
with first-round pick Robert Ayers, leaving Knowshon Moreno, the team's top pick, as the only unsigned player from their 10-member draft class.
In an e-mail, Ayers' agent, Anthony Agnone, said the deal was essentially done, but the paperwork was still being finalized.
The Broncos used their 18th selection to take Ayers, a defensive end out of Tennessee. With the Broncos implementing a 3-4 scheme, Ayers will play a hybrid role as he alternates between the line and linebacker.
Moreno, a running back out of Georgia, was taken with the 12th overall selection.
