Broncos sign 7th-round draft pick

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Cal cornerback Syd’Quan Thompson is the first member of the Denver Broncos’ 2010 draft class to sign a contract.

Thompson is a seventh-round draft pick who earned first-team All-Pac 10 honors in each of his final two seasons at Cal.

Thompson started all 52 games possible over his four-year college career but a pulled right hamstring kept him from playing in the Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine Game.

He set a school record with 36 pass breakups and posted seven interceptions and 257 tackles for the Golden Bears. He also returned punts in college.
