Broncos Ink Brock Osweiler and Ronnie Hillman

The Broncos announced they have agreed to terms with quarterback Brock Osweiler and running back Ronnie Hillman, meaning the club has all seven of its 2012 NFL Draft picks under contract.

All seven rookies are expected to suit up for the first practice of training camp.

“Osweiler and Hillman have agreed to terms,” Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway said via his Twitter account. “All picks are signed…ready for camp!”

Osweiler, a 6-foot-7 quarterback from Arizona State University, was selected with the 57th overall selection in the draft.

He started 15 of 25 games at Arizona State, completing 60.5 percent of his passes for 5,082 yards and 33 touchdowns to just 15 interceptions.

He also scored four touchdowns with his feet, running for 221 yards in his career.

Hillman, the team’s next selection at No. 67 overall, has drawn comparisons to Marshall Faulk, who also attended San Diego State.

Hillman started 20 of 26 games for the Aztecs, carrying the ball 573 times for 3,243 yards and 36 touchdowns. In addition, he caught 33 passes for 338 yards and two touchdowns in his career.

His rushing yardage ranks third in school history and fifth in Mountain West Conference annals. He rushed for 100 yards or more in 15 games for the Aztecs.
