The first pick will be the last to sign in the AFC West.
The Denver Broncos announced they signed first-round pick, defensive tackle Sylvester Williams. He missed Thursday morning’s first practice, but he will be able to catch up quickly. Williams, the No. 28 overall pick in the draft, is expected to be an instant contributor for Denver.
With Williams secured, the lone remaining unsigned pick in the division is Kansas City offensive tackle Eric Fisher. He was the No. 1 pick in the draft. It is no surprise he is not signed.
However, there have been reports that finalizing the deal will not be difficult, and it should be done soon. The Chiefs’ rookies started practice Tuesday, but the first full-squad workout is Friday.
