Three Broncos going back to school

[Via ESPN] Spencer Larsen, Brandon Gorin and LeKevin Smith will participate in the NFL’s Business Management and Entrepreneurial Program this spring. The program started five years ago to give players business-school experience during their players days to help prepare them for their post-football life. The session will be held next week.
In case you are wondering who in this world those players are here are some short bios:

Spencer Larsen was drafted by the Broncos in 2008. As a rookie he played in 9 games and started in one. The Broncos drafted Larsen as a linebacker, but after seeing him deliver huge hit after hit on special teams Mike Shanahan moved him to fullback assuming he would be a good blocker. Against the Falcons in the 2008 season Spencer Larsen was the first player to start on both sides (as a FB and LB) since 1999. Last season Larsen missed much of the season due to injury, but returned mid-season and was a big part in the Broncos rushing attack.

Brandon Gorin is a Offensive Tackle who has spent time with the Chargers, Cardinals, Patriots, Rams, and the Broncos last season. The 31-year-old played in 6 games last year, starting in one.

Le Kevin Smith is currently one of the biggest players on the
Denver Broncos roster. Smith is a Defensive End, and played his first 3 years with the New England Patriots. Le Kevin started in only one game for the Broncos last year, but took advantage of his opportunity notching a sack. He recorded 10 tackles while playing in 13 games.
