They have drafted Jo Randle (151st - 2013) and Devonte Holloman (185th - 2013) outside the top 100 too. Holloman might still be on the roster if not for injury. Kyle Wilbur (113th - 2012) is a free agent this year.

As for guys who have moved on due to cap reasons......Dwayne Harris (176th - 2011) is the only one I could find since 2006. They could have kept him if they wanted to, they chose UDFA Cole Beasley instead.

Jason Hatcher (72nd - 2006) and Martellus Bennett (61st - 2008) moved on but they hardly set the world alight for the Cowboys. Hatcher did well in his contract year, hence why he was 'too expensive' to resign.

--------------------------------------

A quick look at the Broncos since 2006:

David Bruton 114th 2009

Virgil Green 204th 2011

Omar Bolden 101st 2012
Malik Jackson 137th 2012
Danny Trevathon 188th 2012

Matt Paradis 207th 2014
Cory Nelson 242nd 2014

Max Garcia 133rd 2015
Lorenzo Doss 164th 2015
Darius Kilgo 203rd 2015
Trevor Siemian 250th 2015
Taurean Nixon 251st 2015

They lost Brandon Marshall (119th 2006) Elvis Dumerville (126th 2006) to free agency, and can be classed as players lost to 'success' (unlike Dwayne Harris).

So they have 12 picks from outside the top 100 on the roster, at the moment. Look at that 2012 draft though, Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathon, later round picks that are now 2 of the biggest free agents out there. They got their starting center in the 7th round in 2014 too.
