The Sports Xchange

The Denver Broncos finished signing their draft class Thursday, securing injured tight end Jeff Heuerman to a four-year deal.

Heuerman, a third-round pick out of Ohio State, will miss his rookie season to recover from a torn ACL suffered during special-teams drills at rookie minicamp on May 9.

Heuerman already has had surgery and is expected to be recovered in time for workouts next offseason.

The Broncos now have signed all nine draft picks.
