ENGLEWOOD, Colo.— The Denver Broncos on Thursday signed rookie running back Montee Ball and cornerback Kayvon Webster, both of whom were selected by the club in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Ball (5-10, 217 pounds), who was chosen in the second round (58th overall) of the draft, started 32-of-49 games at the University of Wisconsin and totaled 5,140 rushing yards while setting the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision career scoring record (500 pts.). He finished his collegiate career as the NCAA FBS active leader in carries (924), rushing yards (5,140), rushing touchdowns (77) and total touchdowns (82).

He was named the 2012 Doak Walker Award winner after finishing sixth in the nation with 130.7 rushing yards per game and earned first-team All-America and All-Big Ten Conference recognition for the second consecutive season.

In 2011, Ball was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy after leading the nation with 1,923 rushing yards and tying Barry Sanders’ NCAA single-season record with 39 total touchdowns (33 rushing, 6 receiving).

Webster (5-11, 198 pounds), who was picked in the third round (90th overall) of the draft, saw action in 49-of-50 possible games (32 starts) during his career at the University of South Florida and totaled 190 tackles (136 solo), two sacks (39 yds.), three interceptions (34 yds.), 18 passes defensed, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

He earned first-team All-Big East Conference recognition following his senior season in which he led the Bulls with a career-high 82 tackles (61 solo) and added forced three fumbles. Webster opened all 11 games played as a junior in 2011 and received second-team All-Big East honors after contributing two interceptions and nine passes defensed for South Florida.
