The Denver Broncos selected former Boise State center Matt Paradis in the sixth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday. Paradis thought he might fall into the pool of undrafted free agents before the Broncos took him with the 207th pick of the seven-round
Three-year starting offensive tackle Charles Leno Jr. went to the Chicago Bears in the seventh round, at pick No. 246. Leno started all 39 games the past three years and was the left tackle in 2012 and 2013. He was named an All-Mountain West first-teamer last season.
Defensive tackle Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe and wide receiver Geraldo Boldewijn agreed to free-agent contracts.
Tjong-A-Tjoe will compete for a job with the San Diego Chargers. Boldewijn will do the same with the Atlanta Falcons.
Wide receiver Aaron Burks also agreed to terms, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Meanwhile quarterback Joe Southwick agreed to participate in the Oakland Raiders' rookie minicamp later this week on a tryout basis.
