  • Broncos find their left tackle in first round of NFL draft

The NFL draft edition of roulette is upon us, and the Denver Broncos are 20th in line.

But when you combine the lack of a long-term contract with a first-round pick on a lineman who played one season of Division I ball, at Utah - when some bad defensive dudes were still on the board, ready to be scooped up and added to the baddest defense in the National Football League - it looks like the time is now.

Bolles wasn't alone after getting picked 20th by the Denver Broncos.

Christian McCaffrey's selection to the Carolina Panthers at eight overall is a flawless example.

"I plan to start as soon as possible".

"Michael Oher was a hero for me, because you look at people that can turn their lives around, you're like, 'I can do it, ' " Bolles told Newsday. "If he turns out to be who what we think it is, he solves a problem for a long time". "Left tackles are hard to find and we hopefully we found one and we believe we have". Robinson had an excellent performance at the NFL Scouting Combine that played a part in the St. Louis Rams selecting him second overall in 2014. Even more noteworthy, they took him ninth overall despite Ross' extensive injury history which includes multiple ACL surgeries on both knees and microfracture surgery.

In an offensive-line class that was light on potential immediate starters, the Broncos' brass considered Bolles to be the best of the lot.


Despite his age, Bolles has limited experience. "We feel we do".

Among the teams who have studied Bolles closely are the Giants, who brought the bruising left tackle in for a visit during the offseason.

There are two concerns.

Well, aside from one of the two guys who may benefit from Bolles' talents the most - the quarterback. At 25, Bolles chose to declare for the draft after just one season at Utah.

In all, 43 of the 79 mock drafts (54.4 percent) chose an offensive lineman for the Giants. "At 25, he should be going right into his prime".

Defensive lineman Calais Campbell, who's from Denver, took the money and went to Jacksonville in free agency, for crying out loud. Give him a high-five if you see him around.

Next, Elway made a statement about the fun they were going to have in practice when Bolles and defensive lineman Derek Wolfe went against each other. He was kicked out of high school, then kicked out of his house by his father in 2011. But he turned his life around, became a Mormon and spent more than a year in Colorado Springs on his mission - before becoming a football player late. "We need some nastiness on this O-line", said Terrell Ward, Sr. We'll talk about that later.
