The Denver Broncos are closing in on signing their first-round pick, North Carolina defensive tackle Sylvester Williams, the Denver Post reports.

Williams was the No. 28 overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.

The deal will reportedly be four years for roughly $7.7 million, with the same $4 million signing bonus as last year's No. 28 pick, Green Bay's Nick Perry.

Williams played one season with the Tar Heels after transferring from a community college, finishing with 54 tackles — seven for loss — and 2.5 sacks.

"We were thrilled to death he was there by the time it got to us," Broncos executive John Elway said at his post-draft press conference in April.

The Broncos open training camp on Thursday.
