Second Round, 63rd Pick: Vadal Alexander
Despite adding Russell Okung, Donald Stephenson and losing Louis Vasquez, the Broncos now face the difficult decision of releasing or trading Ryan Clady. The offensive line for the Broncos has more holes than Swiss cheese. Add Vadal Alexander to the mix. A versatile, durable starter from LSU would give the Broncos more of physical and nasty edge at the guard/tackle position.
Alexander has a powerful base, but with the right coaching he can work his hand placement. His hand placement is his biggest concern heading into the draft. The Broncos problem with the offensive line this last year was a consistent starter. Rotating multiple players up front on the offensive line is great to show off depth, but it is an easy way to have no rapport. At 6-5 326 pounds, Alexander illustrates impressive balance and frame to work well with the Gary Kubiak system. It is difficult to get to the second level as an offensive lineman. Alexander can do that with the best of them.
Jamon Brown, from the Los Angeles Rams is Alexander’s high ceiling and would be a force on a revamped offensive line at the guard spot. Alexander can block with an incredible amount of strength and the sky is the limit for his potential.
