The AFC West draft pick watch is over.
Denver has agreed to terms with running back Knowshon Moreno. He agreed to a five-year, $23 million deal with more than $13 million in guaranteed money. Moreno was the No. 12 overall pick of the draft.
Denver's full squad began training camp last Friday. If Moreno catches up, he is expected to be a major part of Denver's offense. The Broncos, who will be a run-first offense, expect Moreno to be a three-down back. That's why Denver bypassed greater needs on defense to take the tailback with its first pick.
Moreno's agreement came hours after Kansas City signed top pick Tyson Jackson. This basically closes out the rookie signings in the division. San Diego's seventh-round pick, receiver Demetrius Byrd, is unsigned.
Byrd was in an auto accident a week before the draft and he is not expected to be able to play in 2009.
