Fresno State speedster following in Welker's footsteps right down to going undrafted

Isaiah Burse patterned his game after Wes Welker's. After going undrafted, he's even followed his idol's path into the NFL.

The Fresno State speedster signed with Denver moments after the draft ended.

An undrafted free agent has made the Broncos' 53-man roster for 10 consecutive seasons and Burse aims to extend that streak this summer as a wide receiver and returner, where there's a big void following free agent Trindon Holiday's departure to the New York Giants.

At 5-foot-10 and 187 pounds, Burse is built just like Welker (5-9, 185), who also started out as a return man after going undrafted out of Texas Tech before building a name for himself as the league's premiere slot receiver.
